Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$28   

Well molded kit features separate ailerons, rudder and elevators. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Box art is by the famous Jo Kotula who did 1930s covers for the magazine 'Model Airplane News' and later the Aurora box art of the late 1950s. Air Lines kits are all Frog molds that the Lines Brothers imported to the USA between 1964-1966. The kits, decals and instructions were made in England, then imported to the USA where Testors created the boxes with the colorful trading cards on the back. There are two trading cards on each box which show the boxart but not the advertising/logo. Some kits contain a Testors color painting guide also, but it is not specific to any model.

Sanwa Spitfire 5B Motorized, 1/50, 158

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$125   

Very rare, larger-scale Sanwa motorized issue from the late 1950s or early 1960s. Features motorized propeller, original early electric motor, all hardware, battery holder and switch, factory glue tube, working elevators, rudder, ailerons and wing flaps, retractable landing gear and the on/off switch cleverly concealed in the back of the underwing radiator. Molded in a unique blue/gray, black and clear. The kit has never been started. The plastic parts are all still sealed in two factory bags. The hardware packet with the glue is still in a factory sealed bag as well. The motor is in the original bag but the bag is open. Decals are still factory sealed and 'very good' as are the instructions. The box is 100% complete and has great color but it graded low ('good-') due to significant general wear as shown, a side crease and closed tear on a long side and three closed splits on corners. Sanwa was one of Japan's earliest post-WWII kit producers, making model kits in the 1950s; some sources say 1955. Kits were marketed under Sanwa and Tokyo Plamo, with the general consensus being the the later logo came out around 1960 or later. Production ended in 1964, making all Sanwa kits rare and collectible. The entire line was extensive. It included very small scale tanks (some that were motorized), battleships in three scales with the larger ones motorized with dual prop drive, slot cars, civil sport boats and an electric outboard, a full line of hand gun models that actually shot plastic bullets, two fighter groups and bomber groups (probably Monogram), several different lines of scale aircraft, missile kits, scale (static) car models of early Japanese automobiles, at least 7 flying model aircraft that had electric and rubber motors, a 'Super Control Stand' P-51 that move with a joystick and had an electric propeller and sound unit, two different lighthouses and a windmill, an air cushion boat, motor cycles, a diving submarine (electric) and a working (rubber band) George Washington Class SSBN and even a garden tractor with an electric motor.

Hawk Curtiss Racer R3C-1 - One Piece Box Issue 1949 - (R3C1), 1/48, 600

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$125   

For the advanced collector. This is a model kit with a fascinating history as it may be among the very first injection molded kits produced in the United States (please see the article about early USA kit production on this website). The Hawk model company was the most innovative in America and had been making constant 1/48 scale models in wood and metal since the late 1920s. During the re-run of the World's Fair in 1933, Hawk may have made the world's first injection molded airplanes models - but they were not kits. The models were completely finished and were on display for the princely sum of $25 each. The Mates brothers, who founded and ran Hawk, were quick to incorporate this new technology by adding injection molded details to the wooden kits in the late 1930s. During the war, Hawk put it's injection molding knowledge to work making ID models for the US Armed Forces. Originally there was a nation-wide program to have children and adults make these from wood, but consistency was an issue - injection molded solved this problem. Immediately after WWII in 1946, Hawk made the Curtiss Racer model injection molded in black tenite. The box was a simple one-color affair. This kit, like Varney's PT-17, met a very cool reception at hobby shops. Hawk quickly changed the box to two colors, added box artwork and molded the kit in bright yellow acetate. That was the second issue, still from 1946. By 1948/49 Hawk was using injection molded styrene plastic and still molding it in high-gloss yellow - that is this kit, the third issue. Other than the material, there are subtle changes to the box. It is still one piece but much larger, has much simpler (and larger) text on the end flaps and the box top says "All Plastic Airplane Assembly Kit" (instead of "...Construction Kit"). The box is in remarkable 'excellent++' condition with great colors, no creases, rips or tears, no splits and all 6 flaps present and 100% attached. The box has not been crushed or flattened, which is unusual as it was not very strong. Inside, the kit has never been started and has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. The instructions are in excellent condition. Please note that Hawk did not issue decals with this issue of this kit.

Lindberg British Battleship Hood Motorized, 1/400, 763M-500

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$129   

Rare motorized 1st issue in investment-grade 'near mint' condition inside and out. The box has stunning, like-new color and gloss. There is no tape or price tags, and no marks from tags or tape. All four corners are solid and original and there is no fading, torn or missing litho and zero stains. The only flaws are very light wear in a few isolated locations. This is a large motorized kit that sails well. One electric motor drives the ship on a course that you pre-set - figure 8, straight or circle. While sailing at a good rate of speed, the four main turrets slowly swing from port to starboard together and the guns elevate. I remember sailing mine for years before the batteries died in the middle of the lake. There is no assembly. Inside, the kit is in 'factory new' condition and still packed exactly as it left the factory. The gray parts are still wrapped in the factory wrapping paper, while the small metal parts are in the factory sealed clear bag. Inventoried complete with all parts, color flag sheet and instructions.
