Vac Wings Brewster SB2A Buccaneer Bermuda - Bagged, 1/48, WV4821

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed


Still factory sealed. Rare, and the only 1/48 SB2A model ever made. Very high quality vacuform kit with fine recessed panel lines, numerous excellent cast metal details, full plans/instructions and clear parts as needed. Certain modeling skills are required to build vacuform kits. Not recommended for beginners.

Monogram USS Constitution Old Ironsides Frigate, 3501

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+


Still factory sealed. From 1977 with John Steel box art. This is an excellent kit with simplified assembly; a slightly easier build than Revell's kit of the same size. The scale is not mentioned but this one measures just over 16 inches long when assembled. I estimate that it has been 75 to 100 parts. Features finely engraved one piece hull, detailed deck with all fittings, one-piece masts and yards, molded ratlines, superb vacuform sails (some of the best I have seen), rigging thread, rigging instructions, display stand and decals. Molded in black, wood tan and the sails in ivory vacuform plastic.

Monogram High Tech P-47D Thunderbolt with Photoetched Parts, 1/48, 5487

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


Limited edition issue from 1993 with photoetched details. This is one of my favorite 'builders' because it is an accurate model with excellent fit and finish. The photoetched parts add nicely to the kit. Features excellent cockpit, opening canopy, pilot figure, detailed gear wells, optional centerline drop tank, two bombs and more. Never started. All plastic parts and instructions are present and complete. NOTE: decals are present but are missing markings "R" which are two wheel hub decals. Includes all other markings.

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


Very rare. First and only issue dated 1958. From the amazing box art you can clearly see why these kits are so collectible. This kit uses modified 1956 molds from H232-89, the original S Skyhawk issue. Revell added two Bullpup Missiles (improperly labeled as 'Air-To-Air Missiles' on the box top), two missile trailers with towbars, four figures, three figure bases, weapons pylons, separate flap hinge covers and of course a completely new decal sheet. Molded in the correct gloss gray and clear. Never started. NOTE: missing one (very small) flap hinge cover and drop tank. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts present, plus very nice decals and instructions. NOTE: the box shows better than the 'good-' ranking but is graded as such because there is excessive wear on two sides - the top long and right short. Two corners have closed splits and are taped (with clear tap) and there is a tape tear on the top long side.

Revell 1953 Jaguar XK-120 Highway Pioneers - Series 4, 1/32, H56-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


1953 early issue molded in very light green plastic. The kit has not been started. It is still internally sealed in the factory 'krinkle' bag with the instructions. Before the 1950s 'model building' never made the top 10 list of boy's activities. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream. Shortly after the turn of the century, many dedicated modelers built flying or static airplanes, ship, train, automotive or other subjects. Basic kits existed, but the majority of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s. The phenomenon of the Revell/Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' car kits was a significant force in proving that model building as a hobby could have mass appeal, provided that the kits were easy enough to build and finish. These 1/32 scale vehicles could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real car. The Highway Pioneers series lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys.

Kyosho Convair B-36 Peacemaker Bomber - 9.3 Foot Wingspan 6 Engine Flying Model Airplane, 1/18

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++


Listed as "S&E" but there is no doubt that this is Kyosho's famous flagship kit from the 1960s. NOTE: builder kit only, please read very carefully as it is missing some parts. Very Rare and Very Large model from the late 1950s or early 1960s. Approximately 1/18 scale flying model aircraft kit with a 112.5 inch (9.375 foot) Wingspan and a overall length of 78 inches (6.5 foot). Designed for powered flight on 6 gasoline engines and control line. It was once popular to convert this kit to RC but great skill is required. Highly prefabricated kit of precut hardwood, precut plywood, precut and pre-shaped balsa, vacuform plastic canopies and blisters, completely prefabricated sprung main landing gear with metal hubs and rubber tires. Includes metal hardware also. There are two very large sheets of full size plans in 'very good++' condition. There is no assembly. NOTE: someone built the easy part of the fuselage (the perfectly round section), installed the nose strut and never touched the rest of the kit. The portion they built is gone. So the kit ONLY INCLUDES the wing parts, nacelles, main landing gear struts and wheels, clear canopy and other clear parts as required, horizontal and vertical stabilizer, rudder and elevator parts, aft fuselage parts and of course the two large plans sheets. I have inventoried those to the best of my ability -not an easy task with this kit - and everything major is there. It may be missing a small balsa block or two or some basic hardware, but everything important is there. Sold as-is.
