Hasegawa Kyushu J7W2 Shindenkai Jet Version, 1/72, SP158

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG++


Still factory sealed but the seal has split at the left as shown. Hard-to-find limited issue dated 1996. This is an excellent model of the later all-jet Shinden design. Features full cockpit, detailed landing gear wells, very fine recessed panel lines and more. The amazing Shinden (the original propeller driven prototype) was a radical design and the first canard aircraft in Japan. The basic design was first tested in the MXY6 motor glider with a 22 hp engine in 1943. The tests were considered a success, and design of the J7W1 began in June of 1944. Various configurations were tried, and the prototype had a rear mounted 2000 hp engine, 6 blade propeller, 20 degree sweep back to the wing, two vertical stabilizers and four nose mounted 30mm cannon. It flew two weeks before the end of WWII but never saw combat. The Japanese were quick to realize the jet engine advantage and designed a jet powered version which is this model; however it remained on the drawing board and the war ended before a prototype could be built.

Includes full-size plans & instructions. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts and includes insignia and plans. Berkeley is a very famous manufacturer of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.

Lindberg Russian Jet Fighter Mig-19 With Tow Tractor - Cellovision Issue, 1/48, 561-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


Very rare 1950s Cellovision issue. On the back of the box, the clear window is intact and the trading card is in 'very good++' condition. This is a large scale (1/48) 'theoretical' Mig-19. It was removed from production well before it's time because it soon became obvious that this aircraft never existed in this configuration. However, Aurora made one almost just like it; so it is believed that they both used the same faulty magazine drawing as the basis for both models. Includes a very well detailed tow tractor with driver. The aircraft is molded in silver and the tractor in yellow. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora Flying Sub Test Shot - Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (Seaview Submarine) Bagged, 1/60

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++


Very rare item for the advanced collector. This item was from the estate of Dave Cockrum, the world-famous Aurora box artist, sculpture and kit designer.

In it were test shots from almost every Aurora kit ever made; employees were welcome to come in and take a kit when they pleased. This Flying Sub came from that room. It is a rare test shot molded in the usual test shot color - white- and includes the clear parts. Although the kit is complete, it does not have a box or instructions like most all test shots.
