Blue Bird Fokker D-VII and SE-5A - Bagged, 1/130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

Very rare and probably from the 1970s. Still factory sealed and includes both scale models. "Blue Bird" is not listed in any of Burn's guide books and there has not been a sale in an on-line auction in the last 10 years. They were made in Japan. These are small-scale models with about 25 parts each and decals. There are instructions (text) and an exploded parts diagram on the back of the top card. Part of the text reads "Inserting the shaft into the hole of propeller or wheels, melt the end of them down with something like a burnt iron." Many thanks to collector and builder Harry Nakano in Japan who wrote that Blue Bird was an old plastic model company in Japan which issued four biplane models in about 1/130 scale. The four kits were bagged with colorful artwork headers and included the Fokker D-7, Albatros D-V, Sopwith Camel and S.E.-5A.

Testors U-2 and SR-71A / SR-71B / CIA A-12/M-12, 1/48, 4055

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

NOTE: builder kit only. Please read carefully. The U-2 is still factory sealed and includes very nice decals and HAWK instructions (this Testors kit is a reissue from Hawk molds). The SR-71 has been started and is missing one part. The cockpit has been built and installed, and the forward fuselage has been assembled (parts 7, 20 & 24) and both cockpit/rear canopy fairings. #16 and #17 have been glued to the rear fuselage. Four clear camera windows are neatly glued to the lower fuselage. NOTE: quality of assembly ranged from 'very good' to only 'good.' There are no gaps in the fuselage but there is some visible glue. The worst part is that the builder glued BOTH the SR-71 A and B rear cockpit/canopy fairings on - that is a mess. NOTE: missing nose gear strut. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts, decals and instructions present. I only recommend the SR-71 as a parts kit, hence the low price.
