Never started. The hardware pack is still factory sealed and all other parts have been inventoried complete including the paperwork. Berkeley is a very famous manufacturer of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.

Revell DC-7 Flagship American Airlines One-Piece Stand Arm Pre -S Issue, 1/122, H219-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Very rare true first issue from 1954/55 with the rare one-piece stand arm and correct instructions. This Pre-S model has fantastic artwork of a DC-7 at the moment just before touchdown. It is easy to see why these models are considered the pinnacle of box artwork and so so collectible today. Besides the one piece stand arm and instructions, another difference in the first issue is that the main gear axles are separate parts on this issue. On the second issues the gear struts were modified and the axles were moved to the wheels, and the stand arm was changed to two plastic parts because the one-piece stand arm was fragile and in use it broke easily. Few true first issues were made because Revell quickly corrected this weakness. Correctly molded in gloss silver and clear and a large, colorful decal sheet. Inside, the kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Instructions are 'very good++' with the detailed American Airlines route map on the back. Decals are also 'very good++' and flat with no curl and the typical yellowing as the main flaw. The box has excellent color and gloss as shown but has general wear, very faint writing in the white zone of the 'REVELL' logo and a small litho tear shown at the center top of the box.

Fantastic Plastic XSL-01 Manned Space Ship - With Materials For Building The Revell Launch Pad, 1/75

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

Sells for $185 new. This very large XSL-01 is a scaled-up copy of the original classic Revell 'S' kit. It is cast in high-definition resin and even has decals in the proper colors as the original Revell model. Because this Fantastic Plastic issue came with it's own base and not the original Revell base, the previous owner purchased a very large number of factory-sealed bags of Plastruct material that could be used to scratch-build a Revell launch base; even a quality photocopy of the Revell instructions are included for reference material for the pad. He even includes ladders and railings. This big XLS-01 has not been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts present and includes decals and instructions. Please note that for this issue, Fantastic Plastic replaced the weak 'styrene rod' in the instructions with a metal rod that is taped into the box top.
