Athearn 40' Steel Box Car C & E. I. - Chicago and Eastern Illinois Railroad - HO Craftsman Kit with Sprung Metal Trucks, 1/87, A109

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

Very high quality wood and metal kit from the Golden Age of HO Craftsman kit. Builds a very accurate and highly detailed prototype. Of the early metal box car kits, these are my favorites, with their popularity witnessed by the various reissues through the years. Almost all the parts that are metal on the actual box car are metal on the model. This and the factory paint, lettering and decoration makes these kits difficult to beat for scale appearance. Features stamped steel body, car ends and roof that are factory painted, lettered and decorated, steel ladders, doors, door guides and brake platform, cast metal running boards, bolsters, coupler pockets and three piece brake detail, stamped metal undercarriage beam with fine cross bearers, corner steps, grab irons and more. Includes trucks. The factory paint is excellent, and I have packed it so it will not be damaged in shipment. Due to the high degree of factory finishing, the only painting required for this kit is the interior floor and underside. The kit has never been started. The small parts are still in factory sealed envelopes and all other parts have been inventoried complete including instructions. If you have an interest in these kits and the revolution they created in modeling, please read the article about their history located on this website.

Hasegawa Boeing B-47E Stratojet, 1/72, 1223

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

The B-47 was a very advanced aircraft at the time. The XB-47 first flew in 1947. The big jet's speed was equal to or greater than all current fighter aircraft, so it received radar-controlled twin 20mm cannons in the tail as the only guns. Through the use of mid-air refueling, the B-47 gave SAC it's first all-jet force for nuclear or regular bomb delivery. Although it was tricky to fly, Stratojets flew into the mid 1960s. A program to strengthen the wings for low-level attack was responsible for prolonging the service life. Kit is very nicely detailed with fine panel detail, cockpit, open/closed bomb bay doors with internal iron bomb load, tail "stinger" and detailed landing gear with good well detail. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Revell Vostok Russia's First Spacecraft, 1/24, 00024

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

2011 issue of the classic 1969 kit. Very large 1/24 scale. Well detailed kit of Major Yuri Gagarin's spacecraft. Gagarin's flight was the first of 6 successful Vostok launches from the secret space center at Baikonur. Gagarin made one orbit in 108 minutes, which was enough to make him the first man in space. Titov followed in Vostok 2 and made 17 orbits. Other launches featured 4 mile passes in orbit, and Vostok 6 featured the first Woman Astronaut, Valentina Tereshkova. It is interesting that Vostok did not have attitude control for correct placement when re-entering the earth's atmosphere. The sphere was designed with the weight off-center, so it would automatically swing into position during the heat of reentry. Features detachable crew compartment, ejecting seat and Cosmonaut figure. Molded in metallic silver and clear and includes display stand. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Pyro Blunderbus Pistol Pirate's Favorite Weapon, 1/1, G228-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM-

Sold   

First issue hardbox with great artwork and from the early 1960s. The original owner opened the box but carefully left the seal on the box top, so it is superb condition. The only flaw is a short crease on one long side - otherwise I would have graded it 'mint.' This is a full-size 15 inch long copy of the actual weapon. Molded in bronze/antique gold and a beautiful very dark swirl wood brown. The kit has never been started. The gold parts are still in the factory sealed bag and the brown parts have been inventoried complete with instructions. In addition to cars, ships, planes and figures, Pyro added an excellent line of well-known and not-so-well-known life-sized (1/1) scale pistol and rifle models to their line. In each case Pyro gained access to the actual weapon during the kit design, insuring a very accurate model.
