RCM USS Ward DD139 - WWI / WWII, 1/72

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Bagged

$125   

Very large (1/72) partial) kit of this historic destroyer. Includes information so you can build it as she was in World War I or World War II. This is a really basic kit consisting of a 2 piece hull, some small vac pieces and a lot of resin small items such as the screws, bitts, cleats, guns, etc. It includes full size plans and 15 pages of detailed instructions that include photographs. The instructions list the fittings required (Bluejacket and Model Shipways). SPECIAL ORDER only; not shipped from stock. Kit is molded upon receipt of payment. Time from receipt to shipping your kit is usually 8 to 10 weeks. This model is not recommended for builders lacking experience with vacuform kits. Scratch building skills will be essential. The USS Ward is said to have fired the first shots of World War II. Before the main strike on Pearl Harbor, the Ward was on patrol. She located and sank one of five Japanese Midget Submarines.

Aurora Martin B-26 Marauder, 1/46, 371-259

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$245   

Very rare first issue from the early 1950s. When Aurora moved to the West Hempstead plant, they planned a series of very large scale bombers. All kits released up to this time had been small. Aurora's instincts were correct, and the B-26, B-25 and B-29 were a big sales success. This box art was done by Jim Cox and was only used for about one year, making it very rare. The kit has never been started and is inventoried 100% complete with the original tissue paper, all parts, large clear stand, instructions and decals.

Nichimo Nakajima B5N2 Kate - Motorized Radar Aircraft 931 Sq / Carrier Zuiho / Commander Fuchida's Aircraft IJN Zuikaku / IJN Shokaku, 1/48, S-4813

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$36   

Very nicely molded model with all very fine recessed panel lines. Features highly detailed interior, engine, crew, choice of four load-out options and decals for four aircraft and painting guide. Markings are included for Fuchida's Pearl Harbor aircraft from Zuikaku (bomb load), Shokaku (many smaller bombs), Zuiho (Torpedo load) or a radar equipped aircraft from the 931 Air Squadron. The kit is intended to be motorized with the Mabuchi Baby motor and has full instructions for such, but the motor itself was not furnished by Nichimo. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Airfix Fairey Swordfish II - Royal Navy, 1/72, 02005-1

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG

$18   

Still factory sealed. Type four logo issue, likely from the late 1970s or 1980s.

Aurora Boeing B-29 Superfortress, 1/76, 372-259

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$125   

Rare 1957-1962 issue retaining the same artwork as the 1956 issue. This kit has arguably the most dramatic and fanciful B-29 composition from the 'Golden Era' of modeling. Note the square 'Northern Lights' logo has been replaced with the 'Famous Fighters' Aurora sunburst oval logo and there is a '$2.59' price circle at the upper right. I believe the 3rd issue. The box is in 'very good' condition with nice color and gloss. There are no split corner and no repairs. It does have general even wear. Molded in gloss silver and clear, with a big clear 'triangle-based' Aurora stand. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes 'near mint' condition decals and instructions. Responding to market information that boys wanted larger kits, Aurora introduced the B-26 followed by the B-29 and B-25, all of which sold well for many years- almost right up until the end.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$65   

Addar was created by ex-Aurora associates and production spanned 1972 to 1977. The B-58 and 'Supertanker' (actually the Prototype 707 367-80) are ex-Comet kits that Aurora obtained when they bought out Comet. The B-58 is 1/175 scale and the Dash 80 is 1/300. The Dash 80 has the prototype marking decals. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

MPM Aichi M6A1-K Nanzan - (M6A1K), 1/72, 72014

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$32   

Early in the development of the Seiran submarine based float plane, two preproduction airframes emerged with retractable landing gear for land operation. These were likely the 5th and 6th prototypes and they had dual controls. They were given the 'K' designation for trainer. They could also be operated from the submarines as they had the same catapult attachment. Training may have taken place like this with and airbase landing. It is interesting that the original Seiran concept did not call for floats as the aircraft would launch from the submarine catapult and crash-land beside the submarine when the mission was over. Limited edition kit. Features fine recessed panel line detail and decals for both aircraft. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Amazing factory built, painted and lettered model with incredible detail and working marker lights. This one was run once and is still mint other than a slight bit of dust.

I have included thick clear stock to make a new side window, and the other strut is present. The two struts are identical, so you can cast it or use it as a pattern to make a new one from flat plastic sheet stock. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts, decals and instructions present. Please note that when the molds were modified for this static version, the 'switch hole' in the fuselage was neatly closed up and part #6 (ADF antenna) was eliminated.
