Lindberg F-8A Crusader Motorized with Jet Sound, 1/48, 307M-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

$95   

1950s first first motorized issue in the smaller size hardbox. Bo Janowski painted the dramatic artwork. Large-scale kit is loaded with working features such as realistic motorized jet sound, retracting main and nose gear with working gear doors, removable tail section with detailed jet engine, working elevators, rudders and ailerons and working ejection seat. Never started. The motor is still factory sealed and all other parts are inventoried complete with decals and instructions present. Lindberg is a company with a fascinating history The original 'Lindberg Line' stretches back to the 1930s when Paul Lindberg drew plans for famous modeling magazines and marketed his balsa wood 'stick and tissue' by urging dealers to carry the '...Complete Lindberg Line'. After the war, Lindberg and Olsen had a strong hand in early United States injection molded kit development. Please see the article located on this website about early USA plastic kit manufacturers.

Entex Panzerkampfwagen (Panzer) IV F2 - (ex Bandai / Imai), 1/15, 8479

Please NOTE that one small part (a horn or headlight) is a different color plastic. It is from the earlier Imai issue of this same kit. This model is R/C capable because Imai originally designed it for motorized operation. Entex did not include those parts, however; you would need to provide them.

Pyro Mississippi River Boat Packet Natchez, 1/160, B238-800

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$169   

Beautiful hardbox issue from the mid 1960s. Very large and highly detailed model measures over 21 inches long when assembled. The Natchez was the famous rival of the Robert E Lee. The race between the two is considered a classic tale of The River. Although the Lee won, the circumstances were suspect and many people still considered the Natchez the fastest paddle-wheel packet ever. (For example, the Lee carried no payload and the Natchez was carrying passengers and a normal payload.) Molded in high-gloss tan, burgundy, green and gray plastic. All details of the real ship, including the wooden railings and carvings are duplicated. Includes full rigging instructions and thread. Never started. All the parts that were originally factory sealed are still in the factory sealed bags; the few parts that Pyro did not seal have been inventoried complete. With instructions, decals and flag sheet.

Orange Crush-Revell 1903 Ford Model A, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$79   

Very rare kit with a fascinating history. Around 1958/59, Orange Crush of Mexico offered a promotion. They offered free, colorful, plastic model cars if you collected correctly-marked Orange Crush bottle caps. The models are 1/32 scale Revell Highway Pioneer series - although there is no mention of Revell or Lodela anywhere on the box. Orange Crush had the boxes and even the instructions specially made for them with no mention of a manufacturer. They were never given numbers. The boxes were very thin and fragile cardboard. This has contributed to wear and you must be very cautious with them. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bag and the instructions are sealed in the bag as well. You could redeem your caps two ways - at the Orange Crush truck and at a Modelandia Hobby House. The box sides show the 18 cars in the series. Orange Crush also released two full-color booklets and a complete paint set for the cars. A colorful cardboard box held 7 colors of paint in glass bottles, complete with 'Orange Crush' screw-on caps! The entire promotion was done in coordination with Modelandia Hobby House which had up to 19 stores. Modelandia's name appears on each of the boxes and the paint as well. Robina S.A. was the bottler or distributor of Orange Crush in Mexico at that time. The box side lists the other 18 kits with small color pictures of each and shows three sizes of OC - Family Size (Familiar), Grand (Grande) and Normal. You could also obtain models with Titan bottle caps. Titan was also bottled by Robina and came in large (Titan) and smaller (Titancito) sizes and apparently more than one flavor. We do not know how Orange Crush had access to the plastic kits or who sealed the internal bags with the Crush instructions inside them. We can assume that it may have been Lodela, since they would have had access to the Revell molds. It is not know for how long the promotion lasted, but Orange Crush was one of the most dominant soft drinks in Mexico at that time. Here is one clue: some boxes claim that Modelandia had 13 locations; other boxes, which obviously came later on, claim 19 locations. This may indicate that this promotion went on for a significant amount of time.

Megow Piper Cub Class B 52.75 Inch Wingspan Gas Flying Aircraft, E15

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$189   

Rare kit from the late 1930s. This is the finest example I have ever seen with a 'very good++' condition box and the contents just as it left the factory - never started and complete. One of the few Megow 'Deluxe Big Wingspan' scale kits that were the flagships of the line. They were expensive and few of them sold, hence the rarity today. The Piper Cub has many great features including two sheets with several large die-cut aluminum parts, hollow & completely formed and finished wing leading edges with a perfect airfoil (carved from a single balsa block), many sheets of high quality printwood, printed plywood sheet, precut stripwood and spars, fully formed wheels, balsa blocks as required, clear windshield material factory sealed paper envelope hardware packet, covering tissue and excellent, full-size plans with extensive construction notes.
