Still factory sealed and in investment-grade 'Mint' condition. Mattel Logo and SkyStick issue dated 1968; please note this is the last Monogram Blue-Box issue of this model to have a price suffix on the part number. Well molded and detailed model for that time featuring detailed cockpit and gear wells and choice of two canopies. The decals are for Col. Howard, who was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. He was an AVG pilot and became the first US pilot to become an ace in both the Pacific and European theaters. His aircraft 'Ding Hao' means 'OK!' in Chinese.

Revell A-4D Skyhawk With Bullpup Missiles - 'S' Issue, 1/50, H299-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$179   

Very rare. First and only issue dated 1958 and from this amazing box art you can clearly see why these models are so popular and collectible. For this release, Revell modified 1956 H232-89 Skyhawk molds by added two Bullpup Missiles (improperly labeled as 'Air-To-Air Missiles' on the box top), two missile trailers with tow bars, four figures, three figure bases, weapons pylons, separate flap hinge covers and of course a completely new decal sheet. The aircraft is molded in the correct gloss gray and clear. Decals are flat, intact and in amazing 'near mint' condition. The instructions are in 'near mint+' condition.

Revell Regulus II US Navy Test Missile - 'S' Issue, 1/68, H1815-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$165   

Rare original issue 1958 'S' kit that is in 'excellent' condition. The colors and gloss as are new and the box has four solid corners, no repairs, no tape (other than the factory sealing tape, of course), no stains and no missing litho. Flaws include light, general wear as shown and light corner & edge wear. This model represents the first test Regulus II with landing gear; Vought did this to the prototype and test missiles to save significant money in the testing phases. Very nicely molded in a beautiful deep gloss blue and with very good detail down to the gear well interiors. Includes display 'runway' base. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Decals and instructions are both 'excellent' with typical light age yellowing a the only real flaw.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+

$79   

Rare first issue dated 1955 with incredible box art by Scott Eidson. Never started. Inside, the kit is as it left the factory. All of the small parts and decals are still in the factory sealed clear bag. The hull, deck and stands were never sealed and are inventoried complete. Includes correct early-style large-format flag sheet and large, fold-out instructions. Please note that the box is only graded 'fair+'. There is tape residue up the middle as shown, clear tape around the left and right short sides and significant general wear as shown.

Revell North American X-15 - 'S' Issue, 1/65, H198-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$155   

First issue from 1958. From the stunning artwork on this kit, it is clear to see why these models are considered the pinnacle of box art and why they are so collectible today. This is a finely molded and well detailed kit for that time and features removable canopy and detailed engine, pilot figure, landing gear and retractable landing skid, movable control surfaces & dive brakes and more. Includes Revell's famous round-based 'Globe' swivel stand, a separate, full size color and marking sheet with four views; there is even an excellent history of the aircraft. Never started. 100% inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. The box displays better than the rating, but that is because there is some minor litho chipping and moderate edge wear, especially on the left side corners.

NOTE: the pieces have some tape residue on them. There is no etching, just sticky material that does come off fairly easily - I tested it by removing some using Novus plastic polish.

Adams Covered Wagon - (ex Miniature Masterpiece), 1/48, K213-88

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$85   

Very rare 1958 issue. This highly detailed model includes wagon with detailed chassis, hitch & brakes, accessories & tools, display base, two Longhorn Oxen, horse, rider and two figures. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including instructions. This kit has an interesting history. 'Miniature Masterpieces' was formed through an alliance of Lew Glaser (Revell) and Steve Adams (Adams Action Models) in 1953. Although the molds were made at Adams and it had the appearance of an independent company, the firm was run by Revell down to the prototypes being made at the Revell plant. Originally there was no evidence of the parent company on the surface. The State Coach of England was the first kit, issued in 1953. More kits of excellent quality followed. Revell completely took over the line in 1954 and in that year and the next, kits were labeled 'Revell' with a 'Miniature Masterpiece' label on the box top also. However, Adams broke the relationship with Revell in the later 1950s and began making kits under the Adams name with the original molds.
