Arii Vertol 107, 1/72, 1

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$29   

Rare Arii model from the 1960s. The box is complete and intact but has the obvious stains as shown. The kit inside is often attributed to Airfix and it may be; however, I am suspicious of this as it is a bit cruder in mold quality, so it may simply be a copy of the Airfix kit. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Enterprise Cycle Miniatures Tandem Bicycle And B1 Old High Wheeler, 1/15, B2

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$39   

SALE!! Includes both kits in the original boxes. Very rare. Enterprise was a very successful maker of balsa wood free-flight and control line aircraft models dating well back into the 1930s. In the early 1950s the Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' caught the attention of Enterprise staff. Enterprise maintained their own museum of rare and extraordinary old time bicycles, so it only seemed natural that the first (and only) two plastic kits from the company would represent bikes. The Tandem, based on an example from 1896 and is very nicely molded and detailed for that time. It includes a display base also. The 'Old High Wheeler' is also well detailed and includes a display stand. Both were fine kits issued in 1954 but did not sell well; production was discontinued after a short run. The Tandem has never been started and is inventoried complete with all parts and instructions. The Old High Wheel is complete with all parts and instructions but NOTE: it has minor and 'professional' quality assembly. The rear fork is glued to the frame. There is no other assembly.

Famous Aircraft Series hardbox copyright dated 1960 with a '...Picture Box Top For You To Frame!' The box art painting is "Invasion Landing" done for Revell by Ken Smith.

It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please NOTE that light brown stains on the box top just above the port inboard engine.

Lincoln Douglas DC-7 - BOAC, 1/150, 105

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$55   

Rare, very early issue with "ALL PLASTIC no cutting no sanding" on the box top. Nicely made small scale kit from the 1950s. Molded in gloss silver with a large clear display stand. Never started. Inventoried complete including decals/transfers and instructions. Lincoln was an injection molding firm located in Hong Kong. Model kits were not their primary business but an important sideline and they established an early presence. Major countries of distribution were Hong Kong, Great Britain, New Zealand and Australia. Through specialty hobby shops, they often found their way to the West Coast of the USA. As early as 1956 Lincoln reissued about 16 Hawk kits from the USA, often with 'Picture Gallery' artwork. Although not their primary business, they established quite a line of plastic before discontinuing production in the late 1960s/early 1970s. Many molds moved to Kader, also in Hong Kong, who reissued the line. Some molds eventually found their way to the USA either through ATP (who purchased the excess kit stock when Kader sold out) or IM.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$42   

Very well detailed kit from the original Taimei molds. Taimei was the first to use the Aeroskin type process that was widely used by Renwal. Actually, the Renwal molds for the Voisen, Bleriot XI and Antoinette came from Taimei. The original internal frame structure and details of the aircraft is built from injection molded plastic.

Aurora Albatross CIII - (Albatros C.III / C-III), 1/48, 142-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$69   

Still factory sealed and in amazing investment-grade 'Near Mint' condition. Dated 1963 but is actually a mid 60s issue due to the lack of 'Famous Fighters' in the border of the box side logos. This is just one of the many incredibly successful 1/48 scale WWI aircraft kits from Aurora. A few years after settling into the new plant at West Hempstead, one of the the major projects was to launch this line in 1956. New subjects were added as late as the early 1960s. The line was so successful that many were selling right up until the end of Aurora in 1976.

Marusan Aerial Missile Transporter - Marusan Issue - Cessna YH-41 With Hawk Missiles - (ex Adams), 1/40, 158-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$95   

Very rare Marusan-SNAP issue that is most likely from the early 1960s. This was Cessna's only helicopter design and was once considered as a transport to quickly resupply remote Hawk SAM launchers. Very nicely detailed model features full cockpit and interior, pilot and co-pilot figures, opening cabin doors, missile loader figure and Hawk Missiles with cradles. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: left vertical fin is broken off of the left fuselage; it is present and fits back very neatly so it can be repaired. The rear rotor guard is broken in two but both halves are present and fit back together perfectly. This is the SNAP issue from the original Hawk molds. When Adams exited the model kit business, Athearn (of HO train fame) was actually the first to be interested in some of the molds. SNAP was the marketing arm of Athearn for these kits which also included Winnie the Whale and more.
