Allyn Douglas A-4D Skyhawk - Factory Desktop Model

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Rare, brand-new in the box factory assembled and painted display model. It is still in the original box which includes all the original packing cardboard. This one was given to a contractor who worked on this an many projects for the Navy in the 1950s. It has never been displayed; the factory clear base was still wrapped in tissue and factory taped to the bottom of the box when I received it. The model is in excellent condition. It does have very, very light tan 'age spots' on some upper surfaces. These may not be visible in the photo, but you can see them in person. Beyond that, the factory paint is in great condition and the clear parts are mint. The decals are all very good but have the typical yellowing as shown. Please remember that these never came from the factory perfect; for example, this one has factory overspray on the very top of the stand arm as shown. They would often install the arm then use it as a handle and paint the bottom. This is clearly the case here as the screws are painted also.

Allyn Douglas D-558-1 Skystreak - Factory Desktop Model (D5581)

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box

Sold   

From the early 1950s. Rare, factory-assembled version of Allyn's D558-1 Skystreak experimental research aircraft, which play an important role in America's early jet development. This example was given to a contractor in the 1950s who treasured and collected them. This example is 100% complete with all parts and original, two-piece special clear stand. It is in exceptional condition. The plastic has excellent shine and gloss, the clear canopy is in 'near mint' and the decals are 'excellent' with yellowing as the only flaw. There are no repairs, crack or breaks. The clear stand is in 'near mint' condition also and the stand arm has not even been glued into the base. It would be difficult to find a better original example of this model. Does not include a box.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Very rare, one-and-only issue from 1958. When the "Missile Boom" in model kits started, Revell lead the pack with a huge line.

The loading crane elevates and swivels 360 degrees and can be fully rigged with blocks and tackle, and the entire load-to-launching process can be duplicated with the trailer, truck, crane and launch pad. Includes a crew of 4, textured concrete base and missile launch pad. Molded in correct white and olive drab. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The decals are remarkable 'excellent++' condition with light age yellowing as the only flaw. The instructions are in 'near mint+' condition and are free of yellowing. The box has very good color and gloss, four solid corners, no repairs and no fading or stains; however, it only grades 'good' due to significant moderate wear as shown.
