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. 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.

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.

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.

MPM Messerschmitt Me-262 A-1a / U3 & V056, 1/72, 72113

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$24   

Limited issue model that is nicely molded with recessed panel lines and many photoetched parts. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: the decals are still sealed in the factory bag but have signs of very light staining. The A-1a/U3 was a very early reconnaissance fighter variant of the '262. It had two obliquely mounted Rb 50/30 cameras replacing the Mk 1089 cannon. It is not known if any production variants (A-4) of this aircraft were ever built. The A-1a/U3 was later fitted with FuG 218 radar equipment for night fighting and was rename V056. This aircraft was flown by Oberst Hajo Herrmann from Jagddivision 20, who reported excellent results. This lead to the development of the Me-262B-1A two seating being equipped for night fighting. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.

Air Lines Morane Saulnier MS-406 C1 - (ex Frog), 1/72, 4902

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$24   

From the mid 1960s and very finely molded for that time in silver and clear plastic. Features separately molded ailerons, elevators and rudder. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Box art is by the famous Jo Kotula who did 1930s covers for the magazine 'Model Airplane News' and later the Aurora box art of the late 1950s. Air Lines kits are all Frog molds that the Lines Brothers imported to the USA between 1964-1966. The kits, decals and instructions were made in England, then imported to the USA where Testors created the boxes with the colorful trading cards on the back. There are one or two trading cards on each box which show the boxart but not the advertising/logo. Some kits contain a Testors color painting guide also, but it is not specific to any model.

Sanwa Grumman TBF-1 Avenger, 1/130, 1117

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$42   

Dates from the early 1960s and very hard to find. The kit is dated by the 'Tokyo Plamo' logo, which was used between 1960 and 1964. Inside, the model is factory new - all the parts and decals are still in the factory sealed clear bag. With instructions in 'excellent' condition. Sanwa was one of Japan's earliest post-WWII kit producers, making model kits in the 1950s; some sources say 1955. Kits were marketed under Sanwa and Tokyo Plamo, with the general consensus being the the later logo came out around 1960 or later. Production ended in 1964, making all Sanwa kits rare and collectible. The entire line was extensive. It included very small scale tanks (some that were motorized), battleships in three scales with the larger ones motorized with dual prop drive, slot cars, civil sport boats and an electric outboard, a full line of hand gun models that actually shot plastic bullets, two fighter groups and bomber groups (probably Monogram), several different lines of scale aircraft, missile kits, scale (static) car models of early Japanese automobiles, at least 7 flying model aircraft that had electric and rubber motors, a 'Super Control Stand' P-51 that moved with a joystick and had an electric propeller and sound unit, two different lighthouses and a windmill, an air cushion boat, motor cycles, a diving submarine (electric) and a working (rubber band) George Washington Class SSBN and even a garden tractor with an electric motor. Just before going out of business, Sanwa issued some kits in conjunction with the 1964 Tokyo Olympic games - these kits even included a copy of an Olympic medal.

Aurora SNJ Trainer, 1/48, 80-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Comet Douglas C-54 / DC-4 Skymaster - 6 Inch Wingspan Solid Wood Model Airplane, 1/187, B6

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$29   

Rare 1945 issue. Features detailed three view plans with cutting patterns and sanding templates as well as painting color tips, two sheets of printwood and wood stock. Never started and inventoried 100% complete with all parts, plans and also basic instructions on the back of the box. In the 1930s and 1940s, most modelers built the flying stick and tissue type models with rubber, co2 or gas power. But there were a small but measurable percent that built solid aircraft display models of great detail. This required great skill worthy of the shipbuilders of old, especially considering the limited offerings. Many manufacturers, such as Comet issued blocks of wood and a plan - the famous (or infamous) 'Make Wood Look Like Plane' kits.

Airfix Concorde - Braniff Airlines, 1/144, 60525

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$48   

Hard-to-find issue from 1979. Braniff was to begin flying the Concorde in 1979. The Braniff markings were to be on the port (left) side of the aircraft, and the right side would have Air France or British Airways markings - similar to how the demonstrator was configured with Air France and BA markings. This kit has not been started. The parts are still in the factory sealed bag. Includes instructions and decals for one aircraft ONLY: Braniff and Air France. NOTE: here is what is present from the decal sheet: all of the Braniff markings for one side and all of the Air France markings for one side. The British Airways markings are missing. Several decals are cut out; the quality is 'professional' and they were clearly done by an adult modeler.
