This model is well detailed and molded for that time and features incredibly fine all-recessed panel lines and rivets, moving wing flaps, ailerons, elevators and rudder, detailed landing gear, optional opened or closed speed brakes with well detail, a full crew as well as a guard figure. Molded in the correct gloss silver and clear. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions, which are both in 'excellent' condition.

Pyro Portuguese Man-O-War Santa Catarina do Monte Sinai - Flagship of Vasco de Gama, 1/200, C209-300

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+


Very rare Larger-scale hardbox issue from 1966. There are only two 15th century war carrack ships that have made into plastic models - this one and the Henri Grace a Dieu, also by Pyro. Pyro had a tendency to produce historically significant models regardless of the popularity. I am thankful today that Pyro made these kits, but in the long run this practice did not help them. Pyro eventually sold the plastic kit business to Life-Like. The Portuguese carrack Santa Catarina do Monte Sinai was launched in 1520. She had the typical higher-castled construction and carried 140 cannons. In 1523 she was the flagship of the famous Vasco da Gama. The kit is well detailed and molded for that time and includes pre-formed ratlines, rigging line and billowing sails. The model measures about 14 to 15 inches long when assembled. The instructions include completed model photographs that are intended to be used as for rigging diagrams. Never started. Inventoried and NOTE: missing one gun barrel. Otherwise complete with all other parts, thread and instructions.

Air Lines Miles Master - (ex Frog), 1/72, 4904

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


From the mid 1960s. Very finely molded in silver. Features separately molded ailerons, elevators and rudder. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes 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.

Like most Frog kits, this model does not have out-of-scale rivet detail but has very fine panel lines only, which makes it easy to build up to a very realistic model.

It is rated as such because there is tape residue / masking tape and tears along the lower border of the four sides.

Hudson Miniatures 1903 Rambler Old Timers, 1/16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


Very well detailed large 1/16 kit from 1949. Features plastic wheels & lights, a large number of wooden parts cut/turned to shape and occasionally metal parts and cardstock. Although all of Hudson's 1/16 kits have excellent detail, this one has even more detail than usual thanks to Hudson's engineers having access to the actual car. This kit has never been started. Inventoried complete with all parts, plans and instructions. Hudson Miniatures created a very popular line of automobile kits in a constant 1/16 scale shortly after WWII. The kits sold very well...so well that you could argue that Gowland & Gowland borrowed Hudson's subject matter for their ground-breaking 'Highway Pioneers.' The Hudson Miniatures 'Old Timers' even spawned a line of imitators, with Fador's 'Smallster' being one of the better in quality. Sales did drop on the appearance and popularity of the much smaller (and less accurate) Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' in 1951. When the all-injection molded Gowland kits proved not to be a passing fad, Hudson quickly planned and released his own all-plastic, small-scale competition called 'Lil' Old Timers Quickie Kits.' The kits were of excellent quality, but it was too little too late. Additionally, sales of the excellent wooden kits faltered further in the next few years with the introduction of accurate, 1/24 and 1/32 all-plastic cars in the mid 1950s. This forced Hudson to discontinue the wood kits and the plastic line was sold to Revell and subsequently re-released. Today, these excellent, big 1/16 kits are often the only model available of these early automobiles. In the mid 1960s Aurora thought so highly of Hudson Miniatures that they purchased the wood kit assets and released a very small number of these in all-plastic models.
