Revell KC-135 Stratotanker - 'S' Issue, 1/139, H287-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$79   

1957 original 'S' issue with the fantastic box art that has made these kits so famous and collectible. Nicely molded kit features optional position cargo door, refueling boom, optional position landing gear and a moving rudder. Includes the clear Revell 'Globe' Swivel Display Stand. Never started. Inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions present.

Revell Custom Car Bumpers And Grilles, 1/25, C1154

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$28   

Rare. This is the narrow box version of the early 1960s 'Custom Car Parts' Bumpers and Grills. All parts are chrome plated and the instructions are on the reverse of the card. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts. The other issue was the same part number and title but packed in a card with a clear plastic blister-pack. Although these are not dated, I believe the blister-pack/card version to be the later issue.

Squadron (2) P-38J Lightning Replacement Canopies, 1/72, 9113

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed

$4   

Very well molded, crystal clear two canopy set in 1/72 scale. Never used and still sealed in the original Squadron ziplock bag. These clear and thin canopies are a superior upgrade to the thick canopies supplied with most kits.

Aurora German Gotha G-V Bomber - Abare Box / 1970s Kit With 1958 Ground And Mechanics Included, 1/48, 126-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

$69   

Ideal 'Classic Builder.' NOTE: this is a 1970s revised molds Aurora Gotha with 1958 ground base and ground crew in a Ross Abare 1970s issue box. The kit is the improved version which is a superior kit to the original release. So you can built it like the original issue, I have included an original ground base and ground crew (because the 1970s issue did not contain those). Never started and inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Lincoln Vickers Viscount BEA British European Airways, 1/121, 103

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$56   

From the 1950s with great box art. Nice early kit that is close to 1/144 scale. Features rotating props, 'gear up' configuration and excellent, full color decals. The kit has never been started. The small parts are still sealed in the factory bag and the parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete, including instructions and excellent decals. Lincoln was based in Hong Kong. Plastic kits were not the primary business, but they established quite a line of them before discontinuing production in the late 1960s/early 1970s. Many molds moved to Kader, also in Hong Kong, who reissued the line. Many molds eventually found their way to the USA either through ATP (who purchased the excess kit stock when Kader sold out) or IM.

Monogram Mustang P-51B - Ding Hao - Blue Box Issue, 1/48, 6806-0100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$32   

Still factory sealed and in investment-grade 'Mint' condition. Mattel Logo and SkyStick issue dated 1968; please note this is the last Monogram Blue-Box issue of this model to have a price suffix on the part number. Well molded and detailed model for that time featuring detailed cockpit and gear wells and choice of two canopies. The decals are for Col. Howard, who was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. He was an AVG pilot and became the first US pilot to become an ace in both the Pacific and European theaters. His aircraft 'Ding Hao' means 'OK!' in Chinese.

Revell Nakajima Ki-49 Donryu Helen, 1/72, H102-800

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$64   

1973 Revell Japan hardbox issue that includes a beautiful full color painting guide. Very nicely molded and detailed featuring raised and recessed details, complete cockpit, bomb load, optional position bomb bay doors and very good landing gear and engine detail. Includes a large decal sheet for many aircraft. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Novo Techna Soviet Type L Series II Submarine, 1/400, K4003

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$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 a clothing snap, a rivet or even sewn on with thread!

Revell Whip-Fly F-89D Scorpion, 1/80, H153-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$79   

1960 issue of the rare "Whip Fly" series. Hardbox artwork for this series was the 'action' photos by Tom Kelly. Whip-Fly kits contain the aircraft model with nose ballast, a metal control ring, 12 feet of control line and a control handle- and in this case, colored plastic streamers. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The back of the instructions gives the user important tips about whip flying and a paragraph on calculating 'How Fast Will It Go?' The long side of the box shows the complete Whip-Fly series with the action box art. Included are H151 F9F-8 Cougar, H152 F-84F, H153 F-89D Scorpion, H154 F8U-1 Crusader, H155 F-39 Airacobra and H156 F-101A Voodoo. Although not listed yet, there was also a Whip-Fly Canberra, F-106 and Yak-25 Flashlight. The Whip-Fly series seemed like a good idea...at first. Revell quickly realized that spinning heavily-ballasted, sharp objects at dizzying speeds in or outside the home near groups of children was not the best idea. The series was quickly discontinued.

Park Plastics Boeing 707 Jetliner RCA Promotional Item, 1/180

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$34   

Special late 1950 or very early 1960s promotional model given away by RCA to promote the new 'Jetliner' television sets. Includes RCA wing and tail decals and RCA instructions that also advertise the new television set. Older but nice kit with retractable landing gear. This may be the only aircraft kit issued by Park. The molds are from Pegapan (France) thanks to Dusty Rhodes' research (thanks Dusty!) Never started. NOTE: missing one internal retainer (easily made), one wheel and two engine inlet cones. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts, RCA decals and instructions present.

Orange Crush-Revell 1907 Renault Limousine, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$79   

Very rare kit with a fascinating history. Around 1958/59, Orange Crush of Mexico offered a promotion. They offered free, colorful, plastic model cars if you collected correctly-marked Orange Crush bottle caps. The models are 1/32 scale Revell Highway Pioneer series - although there is no mention of Revell or Lodela anywhere on the box. Orange Crush had the boxes and even the instructions specially made for them with no mention of a manufacturer. They were never given numbers. The boxes were very thin and fragile cardboard. This has contributed to wear and you must be very cautious with them. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bag and the instructions are sealed in the bag as well. You could redeem your caps two ways - at the Orange Crush truck and at a Modelandia Hobby House. The box sides show the 18 cars in the series. Orange Crush also released two full-color booklets and a complete paint set for the cars. A colorful cardboard box held 7 colors of paint in glass bottles, complete with 'Orange Crush' screw-on caps! The entire promotion was done in coordination with Modelandia Hobby House which had up to 19 stores. Modelandia's name appears on each of the boxes and the paint as well. Robina S.A. was the bottler or distributor of Orange Crush in Mexico at that time. The box side lists the other 18 kits with small color pictures of each and shows three sizes of OC - Family Size (Familiar), Grand (Grande) and Normal. You could also obtain models with Titan bottle caps. Titan was also bottled by Robina and came in large (Titan) and smaller (Titancito) sizes and apparently more than one flavor. We do not know how Orange Crush had access to the plastic kits or who sealed the internal bags with the Crush instructions inside them. We can assume that it may have been Lodela, since they would have had access to the Revell molds. It is not know for how long the promotion lasted, but Orange Crush was one of the most dominant soft drinks in Mexico at that time. Here is one clue: some boxes claim that Modelandia had 13 locations; other boxes, which obviously came later on, claim 19 locations. This may indicate that this promotion went on for a significant amount of time.

Hasegawa B-17F Flying Fortress, 1/72, 112

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$44   

Very nicely detailed featuring very good cockpit/front compartment details, rotating turrets with elevating guns, working wing flaps, rotating wheels & propellers and more. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Nitto Hanomag Sd.Kfz 251/1 German Half Track - Motorized, 1/35, 158-350

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$36   

Older but detailed half track featuring realistic track drive through the drive bogie wheels, steerable front wheels, metal axles & hardware, factory-wired switch and all metal gear box for motorizing - all required parts are included except for the motor which Nitto did not supply. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. I have included another set of flexible tracks from this same model because the original tracks are still factory sealed and brittle.

Orange Crush-Revell 1904 Oldsmobile Delivery Wagon - Early Issue, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$69   

Very rare kit with a fascinating history. Early issue when Modelandia had only 13 stores (see below). Around 1958/59, Orange Crush of Mexico offered a promotion. They offered free, colorful, plastic model cars if you collected correctly-marked Orange Crush bottle caps. The models are 1/32 scale Revell Highway Pioneer series - although there is no mention of Revell or Lodela anywhere on the box.

FM MS-472 Vanneau, 1/48, 6027

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$36   

Very well detailed limited issue model. Features main injection molded parts, cast metal, resin and brass photoetched details. Full decals are furnished. The kit has never been started. Inventoried with all parts and decals. NOTE: missing instructions. The small parts are still factory bag sealed. There are no parts missing from the injection mold trees and there are two sets of vac canopies. The kit contents compare perfectly to a photo in an on-line review - that is why I know it is complete.

Revell Lockheed F-104C and F-104G Starfighter - USAF or Luftwaffe, 1/48, H236

$39

Mach Dzik P52 Polish Navy (U-Class) Submarine, 1/400, 02

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG

$12   

Still factory sealed but the seal has drawn the box top concave. Dzik ("Wild Boar") and her sister Solol ("Falcon" were the first submarines delivered to the Polish Navy once WWII began. By February of 1941 Sokol was patrolling the Bay of Biscay and Dzik followed shortly after delivery on October 11, 1942. Both of these ships achieved significant success in the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas, where they destroyed several enemy ships. Both subs outlasted the war and were returned to England. Dzik was then lent to the Danish Navy in 1946. Her active service ended in 1957 and she was broken up in 1958. Very nicely molded and detailed but certainly not a 'state of the art' Tamiya style kit. Features full hull with propellers and rudder, display stand, color paint guide on the back of the box with rigging diagram and full decals with flags.

Pavla Curtiss AT-9 Jeep, 1/72, 72013

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair-

$32   

Well detailed, limited issue model with injection molded parts and photoetched details. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The box is bad with stains, but the kit inside is still sealed. Even the decals are still factory sealed and appear 'excellent.' The instructions are 'good' and have a light stain.
