Sold   

Hard to find. Excellent kit with great extras.

Has decals for two different aircraft in Viet Nam style camo or SAC Anti-Nuclear Flash white and silver. There is even a full color painting guide. NOTE: this kit has minor, 'professional' quality subassembly as follows: cockpit floor to one fuselage half; drop tanks, engines and stabilizer halves; two engine exhaust cones. There is no other assembly and zero painting. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. The Skybolt was a plan to deliver an ALBM (Air Launched Ballistic Missile) from a B-52 to greatly enhance it's survivability. Skybolt failed 5 of 6 initial tests, but finally was successful. However, the program was canceled due to the availability of the Polaris SLBM. Plans to equip the RAF Vulcan with Skybolt fell through and left with British with no modern nuclear force, causing them to adapt the Polaris SLBM and passing strategic nuclear capability from the RAF to the RN. AGM-28 Hound Dog was a sleek design to help B-52 penetrate thick SAM defenses. Hound Dog could use it's engines to help the B-52 during take off and then could be refueled from the B-52's tanks. This was an important point as the B-52 carried 2 of these missiles at 5 tons each. Hound Dog had a range of 200 to 500 miles (depending on launch height) at Mach 2.0 and an accuracy of one mile at those ranges. The warhead was 4 megatons. SRAM was a nuclear-armed short range missile carried in quantity of 20. SRAM was designed to blast holes in defenses in front of the B-52 and for the final target. Quail was a decoy that would mimic the B-52 with radar reflectors, infrared, radar repeaters and chaff decoys. Quail did reach operational status and operated on some Hound Dog-equipped B-52s.

Still factory sealed. Very nicely detailed kit from ex-Bandai molds - part of the fantastic 1/16 classic car series.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Rare. First issue from 1967 with Boeing prototype markings. The kit contains two large 18 inch long SSTs, one in landing and one in cruise configuration. The Boeing SST modeled here is the second (2707-200) variant which still had the swing-wing design which proved impractical in this aircraft. The damaging effects of sonic booms over population centers ultimately contributed to the cancellation of the project. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. NOTE: the supersonic version (wings swept back and molded with the fuselage) has closed crack in the lower fuselage half and a outboard section of lower wing broken off. It fits back perfectly and is an easy repair. Especially if you are building it; then glue the upper and lower fuselage halves together then install the part on the underside.
