Bluejacket Challenge C-2 Cargo Ship - 29 Inch Long Wood And Metal Ship Model, 1/192

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Rare and out of production. Museum quality craftsman kit features hardwood, kiln-dried, precarved hull, extensive high quality cast Britannia and brass fittings and other hardwood and metal parts as required. Includes very detailed full size plans and instructions. The kit has never been started. Inside, all of the fittings are still sealed in the factory clear bags. The other parts were never factory sealed and have been inventoried complete. Includes all paperwork. Type C2 ships were designed by the United States Maritime Commission (MARCOM) in 1937-38. They were all-purpose cargo ships with five holds, and U.S. shipyards built 328 of them from 1939 to 1945. Compared to ships built before 1939, the C2s were remarkable for their speed and fuel economy. Their design speed was 15.5 knots (28.7 km/h), but some could make 19 knots (35 km/h) on occasion. The first C2s were 459 feet (140 m) long, 63 feet (19 m) broad, and 40 feet (12 m) deep, with a 25-foot (8 m) draft. Later ships varied somewhat in size. Some, intended for specific trade routes, were built with significant modifications in length and capacity.

Revell Moon Ship - 'S' Issue - (XSL01), 1/96, H1825-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Rare 1957 first and only issue. When sales of the dramatic XSL-01 Moon Rocket did not meet expectations, Revell molded the top stage in a different color plastic from the XSL-01, added a special 3D Moon Base Stand and boxed it as a stand-alone kit. The result was this Moon Ship with incredible box art. The box art invites you to 'Enter the Age of Space' with these action features: retractable landing ski, removable fuselage section with detailed cabin with controls and instrument panels and a crew of three astronauts. Molded in correct baby blue and clear plastic. This model has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. NOTE: the actual decal transfers are not damaged, but the backing paper has significant bug damage. NOTE: the box is graded 'good-' because the left short side, while intact does have impact damage. It is slightly bowed out, there is some litho lifting and about 1/4" of a closed split at the upper left side corner. There is some adjacent light damage to the upper long side at that same corner.

Aurora P-38 Lightning Brooklyn - Built Up, 1/48, 99-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

First issue built-up Brooklyn kit from the early 1950s. This is the true first issue that is 100% correct: molded in the correct light blue with little surface detail and no mass balances, pitot tube or landing gear struts, wheels and doors. This model is an ideal restoration candidate; it has never been painted, is 100% complete with all parts and even includes the original Brooklyn stand. Even the cockpit canopy is in 'excellent++' condition with only a tiny bit of glue showing. The overall build is of 'very good' quality with some gaps and some glue showing but nothing serious.
