Heller Boeing 707 - Air France ' Chateau de Versailles', 1/125, 700

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$125   

Very rare, from the early 1960s One of two box versions of this kit. Early Heller issue with fantastic artwork. Early Heller kits had some wonderful engineering (such as in the Etendard IV and DC-8) and this model is no exception. The model was designed to minimize painting and is molded in white, gray, clear and includes black rubber tires. The fuselage lower section is molded in gray along with the wings and engines, and the upper fuselage is in white. There is a sheet of colorful Air France decals in very good condition. The landing gear and gear doors can be positioned up or down. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. Even includes original glue capsule and instructions for the glue.

NOTE: excellent builder kit ONLY. Not collectible. Please read carefully. This kit is complete but has some very neat assembly and painting done. Very large 1/8 scale model that measures 22 inches long when assembled. Nicely detailed and well molded featuring complete 327 CID Fuel Injection engine and detailed engine compartment, opening hood, exhaust, suspension and chassis detail, steerable front wheels, complete interior, headlights that open and close and more. Molded in beautiful bright gloss red, black, clear and chrome and with real rubber tires. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. The kit has had the following very neat sub-assemblies built. The quality of the build and paint is in parenthesis with the build quality first. The format is (build quality/paint quality): Engine built and put into frame (professional/near mint), battery and overflow tank (pro/near mint), air intake assembly and radiator assembly (pro/near mint), some front suspension parts and steering box (pro/near mint), master cylinder built and painted but not installed (near mint/excellent+). There is no other assembly. There is other painting as described: minor interior trim (pro to 'very good'- which is only because it needs a second coat. There is just one thin coat), WSWiper blades (pro), front and rear windshield reveal molding and vent window frames, all on the body (pro to excellent++), black weatherstrip around those (excellent to only 'good'). I did not see any other paint but there could be other minor parts painted.

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Rare 1940s competition gas free flight model that was engineered by William Winter, editor of the then-famous air magazine 'Air Trails'.

This model came from the estate of a very active and particular early aircraft kit collector. It is like factory-new inside and has not been started.

Revell Lockheed Electra II Los Angeles Dodgers, 1/115

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$225   

SALE! Very rare. Special issue of the Dodgers Team Aircraft made by Revell just for the concessions dealer 'Danny Goodman' for the LA Dodgers, Inc. I purchased this kit along with the Revell factory shipping carton. This carton was originally sold to Union 76 Service Station #3459, located at 12080 Ventura Blvd in Studio City California. The case was shipped directly from Revell in Los Angeles to the Union Oil Station; the gas station owner's son confirmed this. (Somehow Danny Goodman was bypassed in the transaction!). The kit is fresh from the original shipping carton with no more wear than you would expect. The box is in investment grade 'near mint' condition with the only flaws being some yellowing and light wear on the paper label. Inside, the kit is factory new. All parts, decals and instructions are still sealed in the Revell factory bag. The kit includes a wonderful photo of the 1963 Dodgers - World's Champions!

Inside, the model has never been started. The kit is molded in black (hull), red (funnels and fittings) and ivory (promenade and superstructure) to minimize painting (like in the ITC United States).

The kit has never been started. The red parts are still sealed in the factory bags. The other parts had tears in the bags due to age, so I opened them and did an inventory - NOTE: missing one tiny part, a lifeboat davit. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts present.

Rare early 1960s hardbox issue with dramatic and colorful artwork by AJ Rudisill of the 'trawler' monitoring Polaris SLBM test launches while a SSBN lurks off the starboard side.

All the small parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags; the larger parts were never sealed and inventoried complete. With instructions. Pyro did not include decals with this kit.
