Ideal 1955 Desoto Fireflite 4 Door Friction Drive Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$42   

Original dealer promotional model in 'good' condition. There is very little body warping which is rare. The original friction drive is intact. Green and white color is original and nice other than general wear and some light age foxing. The clear is 'very good' but can use cleaning. The tires are almost like new - if it was played with, it was not for long. No parts are missing and it is original except that the chassis has been painted black and some of the fine trim (door handles, trim, etc) has been correctly and very neatly adult painted. The quality is good enough to pass for factory paint.

Rare, late 1950s issue with Ray Gaedke artwork. The back of the box includes the instructions and a full color , cut-out trading card for the Corsair. Never started.

DIY 1927 Bugatti, 77792

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$22   

Wood kit that is probably imported from Hong Kong or similar in the late 1980s or early 1990s. Large - measures 15 inches long when assembled. All parts are hardwood and cut to shape; the spoke wheels are factory assembled while you built all the rest. Although it is a nice kit (the plans show the completed model), I would describe it as 'semi-scale.' The kit has never been started. The small parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags; the parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete and includes illustrated instructions.

Superb injection molded kit with plastic truck set and dummy couplers. Highly detailed with a large number of parts.

La Belle D&RG Baggage Car Narrow Gauge HOn3 - HO Scale Craftsman Kit, HO, HOn3-22

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

I have built these models and they look identical to the real prototypes. The kit has not been started and is complete with all parts, sealed smaller details and plans + instructions. Please read the article on this website about older HO train kits and the modeling revolution they caused in the late 1930s/1940s.
