Guillows Messerschmitt Messerschmitt Bf-109 - 24 inch Wingspan for Free Flight or R/C, 1/16, 401

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$34   

SALE!! Still factory sealed and in investment-grade condition. From the 1970s. Large scale, well detailed model that can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight or converted to electric RC using modern small and light equipment. Well detailed with scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform engine cowl and spinner, full color decals, colored tissue, die cut balsa parts, rubber motor, plywood firewall and excellent full size plans. Guillow's founder, Paul K. Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.

Comet Republic P-47D Thunderbolt - 24 Inch Wingspan Flying Aircraft, 3502

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG+

$54   

Still factory sealed. 1970s large scale issue for rubber or gas free flight, or easily converted to RC using today's tiny and light servos and receivers. Kit features traditional wood/tissue construction, insignia, detailed full size plans, building instructions, wheels, hardware, tissue and propeller. Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.

Topping North American Aviation T2J-1 Jet Trainer Buckeye - Factory Desktop Model

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box

$85   

Rare, late 1950s early Buckeye by the premiere factory model maker, Topping of Akron, Ohio. This model is from a smoke-free home and is 100% complete with all parts including the original stand. There are no repairs. However, it has been displayed. While it displays nicely, it is not perfect. The factory paint is in 'excellent++' condition but the plastic has age yellowing as shown and there is light wear to some of the decals. There is a short hairline crack in the canopy as shown. The stand is in very good condition, complete and has no repairs. The clear stand arm has yellowed also from age. The original box is long gone.

Monogram Phantom Huey UH-1B Chopper Motorized with Sound Factory Sealed, 1/24, PA226

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$850   

VERY rare in this condition - still factory sealed. Like the first issue B-52, Monogram sealed the Phantom Huey in a unique way. There was never an external seal around the box top. The potential customer could lift off the box top, and the lower tray was completely sealed in clear cellophane so the parts and layout could be observed. This was a great way to make a potential customer into a paying one. The cello seal is still 100% intact with no cuts or splits. This is the first issue of this model, dated 1969. Large and completely transparent with a 20 inch long fuselage and nearly 2 foot rotor diameter. Well detailed with 184 parts and structural members and full internal detail. Features complete cockpit, pilot and co-pilot figures, full cabin, opening cabin door, inner fuselage framing, detailed engine and more. In the display base with the batteries is an electric motor which turns the main and tail rotors while the sound unit makes "chop-chop" sound that varies correctly with main rotor speed. To minimize painting, the kit is molded in clear, zinc chromate green, black, chrome plate, gray, olive drab and flexible black/gray ammo belts. The clear fuselage halves have no breaks or cracks, they are mint. The Phantom Huey box top was notoriously thin and damaged easily. This one has the typical wear but amazingly has four solid original corners, no holes and is 100% intact. Other than the wear and moving sticker, the other flaws are on the box sides, thankfully. There were two closed tears on the side panels which I have repaired correctly from the inside with book binding glue. A long time ago there was tape on the very bottom of both long sides; it is gone, but you can see the brown residue from it for about 7" x 1" on the lowest edge. NOTE: this kit must be shipped fully insured.

Revell Lockheed F-94 Starfire 1st Issue - Pre 'S' One Piece Box, 1/56, H201-59

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$329   

One of the first three Revell aircraft molds issued in 1953. This kit is correct with no rivets and no landing gear. Instructions are printed on the back of the box. Complete with the unique stand that was only issued with these three kits and the gift set of these kits. This box is in excellent condition, complete with all end flaps and has not been crushed - usually these thin one-piece boxes are in very bad condition. Box has never been repaired. Never started. 100% inventoried complete with all parts/decals and instructions present. Please note that this kit is different from the 'Pre-S' issue in the following ways: no rivet detail, almost no panel lines, different part numbers, pilots are a part of the fuselage (busts only), one piece wings and absence of the pods at the half-wingspan line, no landing gear and no holes for such, very early 'Colortone' logo decals and a silver, two piece plastic stand of a unique design that was not used again.

Revell Regulus II US Navy Test Missile - 'S' Issue, 1/68, H1815-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$149   

Original issue 1958 'S' kit in excellent condition. The colors and gloss as are new. The box has four solid corners and had never been repaired. Light, general wear is the only flaw.

Never started. 100% inventoried complete with all parts/decals and instructions present.

Revell Convair Atlas - America's First Interncontinental Ballistic Missile - 'S' Issue, 1/110, H1822-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$540   

Dated 1958. Very rare ICBM and the first and only issue of this Revell 'S' kit representing the Atlas in ICBM configuration. Reissues are impossible because the the molds were altered to make the Mercury Atlas kit. Very highly detailed and molded in correct white, gray and bright yellow plastic. Features elevating missile support arms and hinged break-away supports, complete launching base, ramp and pad, missile truck and trailer that elevates 90 degrees to load missile and crew. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. The decals are in exceptional 'near mint' condition with the slightest yellowing as the only flaw. The instructions are also 'near mint' and not even yellowed. The box has great color and gloss, four solid & original corners, no repairs and no fading. However, it is only graded 'very good' because there is corner wear, edge wear and other general moderate to light wear as shown. All four side panels display like the box top does. Shipping insurance is required for this kit. This model has a great history. Fresh on the heels of the initial "Missile Boom" in model kit sales, Revell quickly planned a large series of missile kits. In order to make them more interesting, any accessories that could be included were such as launchers, transports, cranes and crew. Spurred on by early success, Revell decided to create an expensive missile model by adding all the trimmings - a complete base with support equipment. The result was the Convair Atlas ICMB, which sold for the almost unheard of price of $1.98 in 1958. However, the missile kit sales bubble exploded almost right at that moment and inventory turnover dropped to almost zero just as fast. The Atlas and most other Revell, Aurora and Monogram missiles were dropped from the line up. The high price and nearly non-existent sales ensured the rarity of this kit, but there was more to come. For a long time, it looked like Revell had wasted a small fortune on this kit. But in a few short years the Atlas would carry the Mercury Capsule into space. Revell would dust off the molds, cut in the correct changes and issue a new kit, the Mercury Atlas "Everything Is Go!" model. This model was a success for many years but the mold modifications made any reissue of the original Atlas ICBM impossible.

Revell Tactical Missiles Dart and Little John, 1/40, H547-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$145   

Hard-to-find model in investment-grade 'Near Mint' condition. This is the rarer final issue from 1963 and not the "S" issue. For this release, the original box art was retained and the part number and name were changed, while the side panels show Revell's then-new series of 1/72 scale WWII aircraft. Note that the this kit is called 'Tactical Rockets' instead of the original 'Tactical Missiles'. These models are well detailed. The Dart includes four missiles, one launcher, three stands, decals, one optical guidance unit and a crew of three. The Little John includes a detailed launcher with elevating rails, movable support legs,decals and crew of three. Molded in dark olive drab and white plastic. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Little John was a light-weight free-flight rocket that was highly mobile. It could be pulled on it's launcher or transported by helicopter. Length was 12 feet long and the warhead was atomic. The Dart was a very early 5-foot long wire guided anti-tank missile with a solid propellant rocket motor. An optical rangefinder was used for guidance.
