Superb injection molded kit with plastic truck set and dummy couplers. Highly detailed with a large number of parts.

This is kit for the serious model railroader who demands prototype fidelity. Molded in black plastic. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. Please note that these E&B kits did not come with decals.

Novo Techna Soviet Type D Series I Submarine, 1/400, K4004

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$10   

Ex-Soviet Union kit that is very well molded for that time with very fine detail and hull drain holes. Full hull model measures 7.5 inches long when assembled and includes display stand and decals. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags, which is attached to cardstock that is folded in two. At times the factory workers had to get pretty creative because of a shortage of staples. Beyond staples, I have seen the bag of parts attached with tape, a clothing snap, a rivet or even sewn on with thread!

Aurora-KB De Havilland DH-10A Bomber - Collector's Edition Issue, 1/48, 1125-300

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

$42   

1972 hardbox issue. This is the improved modified mold issue which builds a much more realistic kit. Includes crew, rigging instructions. The kit has never been started. Inventoried and NOTE: missing the display base and one very small piece: the flat windscreen. I have included thick clear styrene as this is very simple to make. Otherwise includes all other parts and decals and instructions both in 'near mint' condition.

Aurora Sopwith Camel, 1/48, 102-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$69   

Just when I think all the issues have surfaced for an Aurora kit, another one shows up! This is a 120-69 (same number as the first issue) 'Famous Fighters' oval logo with the '69' price circle and the Parents' Magazine seal. That makes this the second issue - it would have been put out in early 1957, with the very first re-imaging to the new logo. It also shows that the Parents' seal was used as early as 1957 on some kits. The box artist on this issue is Jim Cox, the first model box artist for Aurora. (Please read the article about Mr. Cox on this website) This kit is part of a very successful WWI aircraft line in 1/48 scale that Aurora introduced in '56. The line sold so well that kits were added to it into the 1960s. Molded in the glossy olive drab green and black. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

La Belle D&RG Closed Vestibule Coach HOn3 Narrow Gauge - Craftsman Model, 1/87, HOn3-25

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$28   

Please read the article on this website about older HO train kits and the modeling revolution they caused in the late 1930s/1940s. During the golden era of realistic train models, La Belle Woodworking Company created perhaps the very finest scale kits of early American passenger equipment. The kit features die cut hardwood parts (no balsa) such as pre-cut and scribed sides with all windows factory cut, car ends done in the same fashion, carved clerestory roof, tinted clear clerestory window material, working end diaphragms, excellent underside details & other metal details, building instructions and full size plans. I have seen these models built and they look identical to the real prototypes. The kit has not been started and is complete with all parts, plans and instructions.

Estes Saturn V Limited Edition - Flying Model Rocket, 1/100, EST2157

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+

$95   

This is the Saturn V that is 43.25 inches high and 3.93 inches in diameter. Recommended engine is the D12-3. The kit has never been started. All of the parts that Estes factory sealed are still in the factory sealed bags. The larger parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete. Includes decals and all instructions. The box has damage as shown, but inside the kit is very nice. The decals & vacuform wrapping are in 'mint' condition. All body tubes but one are very straight; the large BT101 body tube is not creased or bent but is oval in shape. I have carefully packed it with wadded up paper to bring it back out and protect it during shipping. BT101 tubes are available on line from at least one vendor.
