Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG+

Still factory sealed and very rare. This is the Revell Lodela issue with AeroMexico decals. Although I do not know for certain, judging from the length of the box and the photo, the kit inside is the original "S" issue short DC-8.

Revell 1913 Mercedes Highway Pioneers - Series 4, 1/32, H54-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$36   

1954 original issue of the famous Highway Pioneers 'Foreign Car' series. These issues feature the same 5 car artwork on every box; the only way to identify the contents was an ink-stamped name on the box ends. Molded in gloss dark green plastic. This kit has never been started. All parts are still in the factory sealed bag. Includes instructions. These kits have a fascinating history. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream and never made the top 10 list of boys activities. Spurred on by the nation-wide aviation craze in the 1920s, many became modelers and built flying or static wooden models of airplanes, ships, trains, automotive and other subjects. Basic kits existed, but many of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s when the Gowland & Gowland/Revell Highway Pioneers became the sales sensation of the year. Demand was so great that the factories could not keep up and almost overnight 'model building' was mainstream. The phenomenon of the 'Highway Pioneers' kits was a significant force in proving that model building as a hobby could have mass appeal, provided that the kits were easy enough to build and finish. These 1/32 scale vehicles fit the bill: they could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real cars. The success of the Highway Pioneers lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the late 1950s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys...and many adult males too!

Revell 1953 Jaguar XK-120 Highway Pioneers - Series 4, 1/32, H56-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$39   

1953 original issue of the famous Highway Pioneers 'Foreign Car' series. These issues feature the same 5 car artwork on every box; the only way to identify the contents was an ink-stamped name on the box ends. Molded in light green plastic. This kit has never been started. All parts are still in the factory sealed bag. Includes instructions. These kits have a fascinating history.

Measures 18.5 inches when built and features detailed full hull with props and rudder, all deck fittings, fixtures and planking, deckhouses, skylights, steam pipes, vents, ratlines and much more.

Aurora Martin B-26 Marauder, 1/46, 371-259

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$359   

Very rare first issue from the early 1950s. When Aurora moved to the West Hempstead plant, they planned a series of very large scale bombers. All kits released up to this time had been small. Aurora's instincts were correct, and the B-26, B-25 and B-29 were a big sales success. This box art was done by Jim Cox and was only used for about one year, making it very rare. The kit has never been started and is inventoried 100% complete with all parts, large clear stand, instructions and decals. The box has great color, four solid corners with no repairs, no creasing, no stains, fading or writing, no cardboard tears or rips, no price tags and no tape beyond the factory sealing tape. There is light general wear and please note that the box displays slightly better than the 'Excellent' grade but it is rated as such because there is light general wear not visible in the photo and a 1.5" x 3/8" factory tape tear on the top long side.

Aurora British Churchill Tank, 1/48, 315-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

Hardbox 'long' issue dated 1966. At that early date in modeling history, reviewers wrote that Aurora made the best tank kits - this one is no exception. Features all moving bogies and drive wheels, flexible black treads, elevating main gun, rotating turret, one tankman, three soldiers and decals. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Very highly detailed kit with full interior, commander figure, movable turret, nylon mesh for vane detail, raised or stowed TOW missile launcher and more. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Eduard SSW D-III - Profipack Edition (D.III), 1/48, 8256

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Superb model of this attractive aircraft.

There is a full color painting guide and extensive decals for 5 very colorful aircraft. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Still factory sealed. Widely considered the finest injection molded 1/48 scale F-4 kit. Very finely molded and detailed RAF Phantom with markings and painting guide for three aircraft.

Hawk Skycycle Piper PA-8 - Solid Wood Aircraft Model, 1/48, 26

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$58   

A rare kit for the advanced collector or builder. Hawk was one of the few manufacturers making wooden kits to a constant scale of 1/48 in the 1930s. Hawk kits were considered high quality and very complete for the time. This model dates from 1946 but still has the green style wartime box. It features a profile (2D) carved wooden fuselage, wings, rudder and elevator, clear vacuform canopy (in 'near mint' condition), wooden stock as required, fully formed wheels, other cut-to-shape wooden parts, threaded screws to very cleverly duplicate scale engine cylinders, sandpaper, a sheet with wing registration numbers and quality, full-size plans with wing and fuselage templates. The model has not been started and is complete.

Sterling Piper Tri-Pacer PA-22 - 58.75 Inch Wingspan for R/C - (Tripacer), 1/6, FS1

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$289   

Late 1950s or early 1960s giant, full-scale kit designed for R/C. This model was actually made from factory plans provided by the Piper Aircraft Corporation and to this day is one of the most accurate, big-scale Tri-Pacer kits ever made. The model is part of Sterling's expensive big-wingspan series that was designed for R/C and also includes details for control line operation. Very nicely engineered and features the finest grade and density-selected balsa wood, sanded to micrometer tolerance and precision die-cut, die cut quality hard and plywood for high stress areas, stringers and spars, other wood stock as required, factory-sealed hardware kit, shaped and notched leading and training wing edges, covering material, fully formed thick plastic cowling, formed spring steel main landing gear struts, fully formed, shock absorbing (spring loaded) nose wheel strut, a very large & authentic decal sheet and easy to read step-by-step plans & instructions that cover all steps of assembly, radio, and even control line flying. Never started. All of the small parts are still sealed in the factory clear bags. The parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete and includes all paperwork. 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 had the action features and included everything needed to complete the model.

Revell AH-64 Apache Attack Helicopter, 1/32, 85-4575

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$44   

1998 issue of this very large scale helicopter which features highly detailed fuselage, rotors, engine pods, rough field landing gear, complete cockpit interior and instrument panels, rotating 18 inch main rotor and tail rotor, two figures, pivoting 20mm chain gun, 2.75 inch rocket pods, Hellfire missiles, AIM-9 Sidewinder missiles and more. Molded in olive drab and clear. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$39

Pocher Fiat 130 HP Grand Prix de France 1907, 1/8, K70

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$565   

Pocher made the finest automobile models ever created. The detail and working parts on these long out-of-production, big 1/8 scale kits is amazing. Recommended for experienced modelers only. This kit is a perfect reproduction of the original car that won 1st place at the 1907 Grand Prix de France with an average of 113.612 KPH with Felice Nazzaro as the pilot. The prototype of this car was used with the original drawings to create this model. It has 823 parts of plastic, brass, steel, leather, iron, rubber, copper, aluminum and other materials. Features include super detailed engine, opening hood, complete interior, all pilot controls, operating steering, working suspension, operating steel drive chains and more. The kit has never been started. Almost all the parts are still in the factory sealed bags; but several bags had torn open due to age. So I inventoried those bags and they are complete. I taped them shut for safe transport or put the parts in a new ziplock. Includes complete instructions and decals. Shipping insurance (and Express Mail for international customers) is required.

Aurora Gotha Bomber G-V - Parents Magazine Seal Issue, 1/48, 126-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$79   

First issue dated 1958 with 'Famous Fighters in the sunburst logo, Parents Magazine seal and classic Jo Kotula artwork. Molded in a stunning gloss deep burgundy and black. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. This model is part of a very successful 1/48 scale WWI series that Aurora started in 1956. They sold so well that they introduced new kits almost annually well into the 1960s. Some sold well right up until the end of Aurora in the mid 1970s.
