Nichimo IJN Chokai Heavy Cruiser - Motorized, 1/500

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Early issue from the 1960s before Nichimo used part numbers. It is part of a unique and very successful 1/500 scale warship series with rare glossy box art from the 'Golden Age' of Japanese model kit illustrations. The model can be built motorized for operation in water or static full hull or waterline versions. It is very well detailed and molded for that time.

Includes instructions and even the original silver and gold foil covered cardboard nameplate for display. Please note that Nichimo did not furnish decals or the electric motor with these early issues.

Sign up for the Hotlist.

The early issue from the late 1950s or early 1960s. Classic motorized kit with over 100 moving parts. All internal cardboard and cello display packing is present. When built, all major internal parts move via electric motor and spark plugs (red lights) flash in time. This kit has never been started. The small metal parts and hardware are still factory sealed. I did a complete inventory on all clear, red, black and metallic colored parts and they are complete. Does include the very rare Renwal plastic cement. Please NOTE that the box only grades as 'Poor++.' The very top of the box (shown) is intact, but the rest of the box was in about 8 pieces and is neatly taped together with clear tape. Three sides panels are complete, but the right short one is missing (2) 2" long sections on the far left and far right; they have been replaced with white cardboard. The box bottom is complete but also taped together. Summary: the actual kit is excellent but the box is not in collectible condition.

Revell 155mm Long Tom Gun and M-4 High Speed Tractor 'S' Kit, 1/40, H523-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$185   

Rare 1956 first issue. The box is complete and has 'good' color, four original solid corneres, no price tags or tag marks and no tape (other than the factory sealing tape). However, there is a fair amount of even, moderate age foxing on the top and all four sides. Highly detailed set includes both kits - the High Speed Tractor and the Long Tom 155mm gun. Has many working features - the tractor has movable tracks and working bogies, rotating and elevating machine gun, driver and interior details. The gun can be stowed for transport with the M-4 and all extra gear to do this correctly is supplied. The Long Tom features and elevating barrel, moving limbers and detailed mechanism. NOTE: this kit has minor and very neatly done assembly to 8 pieces as described: gun barrel halves assembled and puttied; recoil mechanism halves assembled and puttied; gun carried halves assembled and puttied; two wheels halves assembled. There is no other assembly. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Instructions and decals are both correct and in 'very good++' condition; the only flaw on the decals is typical age yellowing. NOTE: one piece has 'SNAP' engraved on the bottom so that part is clearly from the SNAP issue of this same kit. All other parts look to be Revell, as they are the correct shade of green plastic, correct sheen, part numbers, silver flexible tracks, etc., but there is of course no way to 100% confirm that.

Includes a detailed 'battle-ground' base. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please note that the box displays as 'Near Mint' but is only graded 'Excellent' because there is a narrow 1/" by 1 3/8" tape tear on the long upper side.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$40   

1967 Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of the kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity.

In some cases, the specific car and owner is on the box - in this case the exact car was on display at the Auto Aviation Museum under the directorship of Mrs. Philip L. Sommerlad of the Western Reserve Historical Society, Cleveland, OH. The model includes rubber tires, brass plated parts, colored injection molded parts and clear parts. Features detailed chassis, complete motor and interior and a removable hood or 'bonnet.' Never started and inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions.

Monogram Focke-Wulf FW-190 Test Shot - Bagged, 1/72, PA107

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box

$36   

This kit came from the collection of one of Monogram's finest and talented Chief Designers, the man who created the original B-52 kit, B-17, B-24J, P-36A, P-39 Airacobra, P-61 Black Widow, DH Mosquito, at least one if not all of the 1/8 scale Ford cars, A-1E Skyraider and numerous other famous kits. In his collection were boxes (usually Four-Star armor that had been damaged on the box-assembly machine) labeled 'TEST SHOTS' and some with his name on it. After designing the model, he was still responsible for the entire program, at least up to the point of mass production. Test Shots were made near the end of the design process for the Chief Designer of that kit to inspect; if something was wrong, he ordered changed. If not, he would clear the kit for production. Test Shots were usually made in whatever plastic was loaded into the silo at the time and in some cases reground plastic (from defects) was even used. This is one of those kits. Ever notice that all Monogram FW190s are always molded in green and black? Well, not in this case! This test shot is molded with many small parts in a startling white with a black swirl, black, clear and green. This is a pre-first issue. It has never been started. The model is inventoried with all parts and instruction present. The instructions may have come with the test shot for his approval or they may have been added later. I have included them because they were in the same 'TEST SHOT' box as the kit.

Monogram Curtiss P-40B Tiger Shark Test Shot - Bagged, 1/72, PA96

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box

Test Shots were usually made in whatever plastic was loaded into the silo at the time and in some cases reground plastic (from defects) was even used. This is one of those kits. Ever notice that all Monogram P-40s were molded in olive-drab plastic? Well, not in this case! This test shot is molded with most of the parts in a chocolate brown plastic, some in silver and the few remaining ones in green and clear plastic. This is a pre-first issue. It has never been started. The model is inventoried with all parts and instruction present. The Four Star issue instructions are mint and may have come with the test shot for his approval or they may have been added later. I have included them because they were in the same 'TEST SHOT' box as the kit. As a note, the test shots of the Monogram Four Star Helldiver were molded in silver and clear - clear dive brakes and many other clear parts! Some test shots of the Hawker Hurricane were molded in gloss gray with a little bit of white added so the designer could see exactly how the plastic moved into and filled the cavities.
