Sterling Ansaldo S.V.A. 5 That Drops Leaflets in Flight - 19 Inch Wingspan R/C / Freeflight / Control Line Aircraft - (SVA-5), A18-249

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG

$72   

Still factory sealed. This 19 inch wingspan kit is designed for free flight with 'easy conversion to control line or R/C flying.' Includes an innovative system for automatically dropping 'propaganda leaflets' in flight. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they featured color decals, high-grade die cut balsa, vacuform plastic detail parts, plastic wheels (if required), finished wire landing gear, rubber motor and plastic prop, full size plans with instruction details and full instructions for conversion to RC or control line.

Planet Models Junkers Ju-287 V3 (A-1) - (Ju287V3), 1/72, 068

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$125   

Rare, well detailed, high-definition cast resin model. Never started and the parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The Junkers Ju287 series was probably the most advanced WWII bomber to actually fly. Development continued until the end of the war; the Soviets captured the remaining aircraft, moved them to the USSR, completed and flew them. This turned out to be key to future Soviet bomber designs.

Sign up for the Hotlist.

The early issue from the late 1950s or early 1960s. Classic motorized kit with over 100 moving parts. All internal cardboard and cello display packing is present. When built, all major internal parts move via electric motor and spark plugs (red lights) flash in time. This kit has never been started. The small metal parts and hardware are still factory sealed. I did a complete inventory on all clear, red, black and metallic colored parts and they are complete. Does include the very rare Renwal plastic cement. Please NOTE that the box only grades as 'Poor++.' The very top of the box (shown) is intact, but the rest of the box was in about 8 pieces and is neatly taped together with clear tape. Three sides panels are complete, but the right short one is missing (2) 2" long sections on the far left and far right; they have been replaced with white cardboard. The box bottom is complete but also taped together. Summary: the actual kit is excellent but the box is not in collectible condition.

Revell 155mm Long Tom Gun and M-4 High Speed Tractor 'S' Kit, 1/40, H523-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$185   

Rare 1956 first issue. The box is complete and has 'good' color, four original solid corneres, no price tags or tag marks and no tape (other than the factory sealing tape). However, there is a fair amount of even, moderate age foxing on the top and all four sides. Highly detailed set includes both kits - the High Speed Tractor and the Long Tom 155mm gun. Has many working features - the tractor has movable tracks and working bogies, rotating and elevating machine gun, driver and interior details. The gun can be stowed for transport with the M-4 and all extra gear to do this correctly is supplied. The Long Tom features and elevating barrel, moving limbers and detailed mechanism. NOTE: this kit has minor and very neatly done assembly to 8 pieces as described: gun barrel halves assembled and puttied; recoil mechanism halves assembled and puttied; gun carried halves assembled and puttied; two wheels halves assembled. There is no other assembly. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Instructions and decals are both correct and in 'very good++' condition; the only flaw on the decals is typical age yellowing. NOTE: one piece has 'SNAP' engraved on the bottom so that part is clearly from the SNAP issue of this same kit. All other parts look to be Revell, as they are the correct shade of green plastic, correct sheen, part numbers, silver flexible tracks, etc., but there is of course no way to 100% confirm that.

Includes a detailed 'battle-ground' base. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please note that the box displays as 'Near Mint' but is only graded 'Excellent' because there is a narrow 1/" by 1 3/8" tape tear on the long upper side.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Pyro 1911 Stevens-Duryea Tourer - Vintage Brass Car Series, 1/32, C453-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$40   

1967 Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of the kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. In some cases, the specific car and owner is on the box - in this case the exact car was on display at the Auto Aviation Museum under the directorship of Mrs. Philip L. Sommerlad of the Western Reserve Historical Society, Cleveland, OH. The model includes rubber tires, brass plated parts, colored injection molded parts and clear parts. Features detailed chassis, complete motor and interior and a removable hood or 'bonnet.' Never started and inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions.
