KMC Boeing 727-200 With S&S Model 50/60 Two Tractor With Tow Bar - American Airlines (1/72 727), 1/72, PA01

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

A very rare kit that includes the even rarer matching KMC Models #07202 American Airlines tow tractor with tow bar. This is a resin model kit that has never been started and is still in the internal factory sealed bags with instructions. The big model is the only 1/72 injection-molded 727 kit every made. Large and well molded, featuring all recessed panel lines, high-definition cast resin details, clear windows and a large decal sheet with full American Airlines markings and stripes. I was discussing this kit with the original manufacturer, and he told me that the molds for this kit have been destroyed, so no reissue is possible. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all injection molded and resin parts, decals and instructions.

AMT 1964 Ford Falcon Convertible Promo With Original Box, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Very rare promotional in superb condition and includes the original box. This model was obtained new on Feb. 11, 1965 by a discriminating adult collector in Lexington KY. It has never even been displayed - it has been in the box since it left the factory. The color and gloss are factory new. The chrome and clear are 'near mint.' There is no body warp. I would grade this one 9.8 out of 10 with 10 being flawless. I hesitate to grade anything 'perfect' because these were not flawless from the factory. The original box is complete and 'good+' with general age wear. On one end is factory stamped "FALCON CONV. RANGOON RED."

Jo-Han 1970 AMC Hornet Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Rare promotional in superb condition. This model was obtained in the very early 1970s by a discriminating adult collector in Lexington KY. The promo has never even been displayed or played with . The color and gloss are factory new. The chrome is 'near mint.' There is no body warp and the clear is in 'near mint' condition. I would grade this one 9.5 out of 10 with 10 being flawless. The deduction is for very light box roof scuffs. It comes with an old, original style box but the box is NOT original to the kit. "1970 Cadillac" is factory stamped on the short side.

Saunders Swadar 1914 Mercedes Race Car - Classics of Road and Track, 1/16, 1914-K

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Very rare and from the early/mid 1950s. Although simple by modern standards, this model was a big increase in quality from the toy-like Highway Pioneers...not to mention the big 1/16 scale (HP were 1/32). Features an engine, removable hood, rolling chassis and interior, but all with a low part count. Very nicely molded in gloss white and black. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes 'excellent' instructions and even the remains of the factory 'krinkle' bag that the parts were formerly sealed in. Sanders Swadar was a toy company out of Aurora, Illinois and a division of Saunders Tool & Die Company in the same town. Saunders decided to go into the plastic model business some time in the early 1950s, no doubt inspired by the Highway Pioneers and the rush to market that followed that. Other 'construction kits' listed on the instructions at the time of this release are Bell Helicopter with Pontoons, Bell Helicopter with Landing Skids, USN Tandem Rotor Helicopter, USN Aircraft Carrier with Catapult and Planes (CV38), Fairchild Pack Plane with Tank and Jeep and 1/16 1912 Mercer Race Car. Please note that other than the Mercer, the other models have a toy-like quality to them...so this is a very early release as the other true-scale Swadar models had yet to be released. Actually, very few kits appeared with the full 'Saunders Swader' name - most simply said 'Swadar.' In total there was a small but significant line of aircraft and a few large (1/16) scale car kits as well as a famous tractor model. Most or all of these kits were available until the mid 1950s, when Swadar discontinued production. At some point Lindberg acquired these molds although it does not appear to have been in the 1950s or even the 1960s. The earliest Lindberg releases appear to be 1977 - so until older issues show up, we can speculate on where the molds were until then and how Lindberg obtained them!

Sold   

Very rare and from 1958. True first issue with the 69 cent price extension. From ex-Best molds. Aurora purchased the Best molds for the Indianapolis 500 Winners and made one issue.

Bill Vukovich was the driver of the Fuel Injection Special, which roared over the 500 miles in 3 hours, 53 minutes and 10 seconds. The average speed was 128.740 mph and he lead for 195 laps. Some laps were as fast as 138 mph. This car has magnesium disc wheels, and the first eight finishers also sported the same instead of the customary wire wheels.
