Sold

West Side Model Co Brass HOn3 Class, 1/87

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Beautiful, like-new condition brass narrow gauge locomotive, hand-built in Japan by the renown Nakamura Seimisu K.K. (marketed in the USA as Westside Models). It is still wrapped in the original plastic and all three pieces of the factory foam are intact and in excellent condition. This one-owner model has always been carefully stored in the original box. There is the slightest bit of wheel wear at 14x magnification, so it appears it was test run at one point but nothing more. I see no broken parts and no modifications; it looks factory-new. However, most of these came with a small firebox cover for the inside of the cab; this one does not have one. I have no narrow gauge track, so I am unable to test the locomotive, so it is sold "As Is." There is no paperwork present.

Megow Rearwin Speedster - 30 Inch Wingspan Flying Aircraft, 1/13, J9

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

Rare wartime issue from about 1943 and an ideal builder. Large scale (1/12.8) flying model has stick and tissue construction. Features quality balsa printwood, spars and stringers, fully formed wheels, metal stock as required, pre-carved prop, rubber motor, sealed envelope of small parts, two colors of tissue and very nice full size plans.

Airfix Boeing 314 Pan Am Clipper - 'Dixie' or BOAC 'Berwick', 1/144, 1415-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Otherwise complete with all other parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: three small parts are a different color plastic; they are from a later issue of this same kit. In the 1930s Pan Am was a household word in the USA for their romantic foreign routes and the glamorous 'China Clippers' that crossed the Pacific Ocean, stopping at such ports as Wake Island. Pan Am's attention soon turned to the Atlantic. Since non-stop service would be needed, a new aircraft was designed. The Boeing 314 was chosen. This huge flying boat started flying the Atlantic mail in 1939 with a trip over 26 hours long. Before the war, the 314 fleet flew the Pacific, Atlantic and other routes. The airliner was a palace compared to the cramped jets and limited service of today. The flight deck compared to the bridge of a ship and housed 6 crew. It was connected to the passenger cabin by a spiral staircase. The luxurious cabins were divided into 5 standard compartments, each seating 10 passengers, a dining salon for 14, a special compartment for four and a deluxe bridal suite. 74 could be carried on day trips and 40 when sleeping quarters for all passengers was required. Chefs prepared gourmet meals while passengers lounged in deeply cushioned wicker chairs and enjoyed a grand view of the scenery from about 5,000 feet. The age of the Clippers ended shortly after WWII when land planes could operate at much higher speeds than the flying boats.
