Revell Boeing B-47 Giant Stratojet Bomber - Narrow Box Pre 'S' Kit, 1/112, H206-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$195   

Rare first issue with the 1.25 inch high pre-'S' hardbox vs. the later standard size 1.4 inch box. This kit has the correct short-lived 1st issue 2 piece stand as opposed to the later standard 4 piece stand. The early stand with this kit has a base and an arm - the arm has three prongs. This stand was discontinued shortly after introduction as it broke very easily. Inside, the kit is mint. The small parts still sealed in factory cello bag. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Revell American Firefighters Hose Reel - With Horses and Firemen, 1/48, F202-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$62   

Rare 1953 and the first Revell issue that features two highly detailed horses, hitch, carriage with frame detail, flexible hose, rope & metal chain, along with two firefighters and a Dalmatian dog. Molded in the correct white, red and yellow plastic. It has never been started and has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions present. Marlin first cut the molds in 1952 and issued the six original American Firefighters (Chemical and Ladder, Steamer, Hook and Ladder, Water Tower, Aerial Ladder and Hose Reel) in 1952. Revell signed a marketing agreement with Marlin in 1953. Five of the kit were released with the Revell name and marketing name 'Collectors Kits, Closter N.J.' Revell added the horse parts as they were not originally part of the Marlin issues. The kits made excellent display pieces, but they never caught the imagination of young men like jet aircraft did. The five molds were shipped to Brazil. After run for Kikoler (Revell Brazil's Distributor), they were shipped back to the USA but the molds were lost at sea. This issue is from when Revell still had the marketing agreement, as it says 'Trade Mark Copyright 1953 Marlin Toy Co. Inc' on the box top and 'Collector's Kits, Inc, Closter, N.J.' on the side.

StromBecker American Airlines Convair Flagship - 10 Inch Wingspan Solid Wood Kit, C-38

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$95   

Highly prefabricated kit made from Solid Western Pine - not balsa wood. Makes a very impressive display model when built. Includes precut and shaped fuselage, wings, elevators, rudder and nacelles, a bag of sealed detail parts including propellers, wheels, etc, envelopes of wood filler and glue, sandpaper, detailed instructions and drawings with aircraft history and a large, colorful American Airlines decal sheet. Never started. 100% complete with all parts and plans. NOTE: the box is only fair. The ends are heavily taped and the tape extends onto the box top and bottom.

Before plastic kits were introduced, Strombecker was famous as the premier hardwood preshaped model manufacturer. In the 1940s and 1950s, Strombecker kits were flawlessly engineered but not inexpensive. All wooden parts are hardwood and are precarved to shape - usually only a quick sanding would finish them.

Revell George Washington SSBN-598 Nuclear Powered Polaris Missile Submarine 'S' Issue, 1/261, H365-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$225   

Rare, first issue dated 1958 with "S" cement logos on the box sides. Please note that Revell soon made drastic modifications to this mold, which made a reissue impossible. This is the first cut-away Polaris sub with interior that got Revell in hot water with the US Government - the Navy had thought that Revell had breeched security to obtain the details for the model. This one is in exceptional condition with 'excellent+' color and gloss, for solid corners with no repairs, no price tags or tag marks, no tape or tape marks other than the factory tape marks and no fading. The only flaws are general light and even wear. The model was highly detailed for that time will full interior and snap-off starboard hull half and two Polaris missiles that 'fire' using spring power. The kit has never been started. Molded in the correct gloss medium gray, light green and black plastic. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions as well as the special booklet 'The Story of Our Underwater Nuclear Navy.'

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$189   

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.

Zvezda Russian Battleship Borodino, 1/350, 9027

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$36   

Still factory sealed. This full hull kit from new, modern molds and highly detailed with 356 pieces. Borodino was the lead ship of a class of pre-dreadnought battleships built for the Imperial Russian Navy. She was finished after the start of the Russo-Japanese war in 1904. After completion she was sent with a squadron from Libau to break the Japanese blockade of Port Arthur, but while in transit the Japanese occupied the port. The Second Pacific Squadron sailed instead to Vladivostok, the last Russian port in the far east. After a very long voyage and numerous delays, the Japanese certainly knew they were coming and set up for battle to cut the Russians off at Tsushima Strait. Borodino saw action at Tsushima early on. After taking serious damage, the Russians were not interested in further battle and around 1700 they turned away from Japanese cruisers- but ran into the Japanese battleships again. 10 minutes later Togo ordered his ship to cease fire and disengage; the battleship Fuji had already loaded her 12" guns and fired them before the turn away. One of these shells hit Borodino under her starboard 6 inch turret, which started a fire in the ready ammunition that quickly spread to a 6" magazine. This caused a chain reaction and massive magazine explosions. Only one man survived from a crew of 855.

Hawk Lockheed U-2 Spyplane, 1/48, 209-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$54   

Dated 1962 and most likely the very first issue because it is a hardbox and has the price prefix on the kit number.

Features a 22 inch wingspan, fine raised panel lines, 'good' cockpit with pilot, two piece canopy that can be displayed opened or closed, full landing gear and outriggers, standing pilot, optional position air brakes, optional antenna and 'sniffer' pod and more. This kit is actually the basis for the Testors U-2 variants in this same scale. Molded in a very dark blue and clear with a large orange stand. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
