Monogram Phantom Mustang F-51D (P-51) See-Thru Working Model, 1/32, PA67-498

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

First issue of this all-time classic. Hardbox is dated 1961 and in unusually good condition with no split corners, very good color and gloss, no tape or price tags, no marks from tape or tags and no litho tears. Flaws include general wear and creases as shown as well as sun fading to the end panels and slight bit at the lower left top. Widely considered to be one of the best visible airplane action kits ever made. Features a full cut away model with interior detail. Buttons on the base activate two motors that make the prop spin, and the main gear and tail wheel retract and extend. Two other levers on the base drop the wing bombs. Inside, this kit is as it left the factory. All of the special presentation cardboard is as new and the two motors are still sealed. Molded in the correct first edition shades of clear, red, black, silver and zinc chromate green. It has never been started and is inventoried complete with all parts present. Instructions and decals are correct for the first issue and feature the 'Horse' stand decal. NOTE: decals are intact but have visible age cracking. Please read the two articles (on this website) about saving and restoring old decals. Insurance is required with this kit.

Revell Ford 5-AT Tri-Motor - TWA 'N414H' / Scenic Airways N414H - Bagged, 1/77, 0389

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Dated 1993 and from ex-Monogram 'Four Star' molds. High quality kit with new decals including colorful Scenic Airways. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bag. Includes decals and instructions.

Yunyj Tyechinik Yakovlev Yak-18 - Light Acrobatic Aircraft, 1/40

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Sold   

This kit is still in the heat sealed old plastic bag, which has preserved the delicate box very nicely. Classic Cold War kit in large 1/40 scale. I believe this is a 'Yunyj Tyechinik' release and not the earlier MZMPI. This company succeeded MZMPI (which was the first kit manufacturer in the USSR) and continued till a new name was introduced in the mid 1970s. Yak-18s have been observed in service with the North Korean air force as recently as August 2018.

It has never been started and is inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present.

The color and gloss is like new. All four corners are solid and original and there is no edge wear, fading, water stains, tape or price tags on the box.

Still factory sealed and investment-grade condition. The seal is intact and the Kotula hardbox artwork is in mint condition.

Monogram Speedee-Bilt Long Midget or Midget Mustang - Flying Scale Model, G6-100

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Formerly released as the Midget Mustang. Scale flying rubber powered wooden model. Before there were plastic models, there were wooden aircraft kits. These usually came in two types - solid and stick and tissue. The solid models were static and usually contained a few blocks of balsa and sometimes a detail part or two. These "Make Wood Look Like Plane" models required a very high level of skill in carving and finishing. The stick and tissue variety were slightly easier to build and provided the ultimate thrill - they could fly when complete with rubber power (and later with free-flight gas and eventually RC). They still required a great deal of skill, so manufacturers sought ways to make model building more accessible to everyone. One idea was pre-carving and/or prefabrication. This raised prices, naturally. Many manufacturers launched lines of 'easy' to build flying models but only Monogram succeeded in making an entire line at an affordable price that would actual fly. The original "Speedee-Bilt" kits were in one-piece two-color boxes. In the early 1950s, shortly before plastic kits were available, Monogram changed to the 'hardbox' with a lithographic slick glued to the top as this kit. Speedee-Bilt kits contained die cut and pre painted wooden parts, completely formed airfoil wings, carved wheels and numerous plastic details like cowlings, pilot, missiles, prop and more. Assembly was by detailed full size plans. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Italeri Waco CG-4A Assault Glider or British Hadrian D-Day Invasion Glider, 1/72, 118

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

Sold   

Still factory sealed. Same as the Testors kit as Italeri made and owns the molds. The Waco CG-4 was designed and initially built by Waco Aircraft Company of Troy, OH. It first saw action in Sicily and the operation was termed a disaster. This likely had more to do with planning than the actual glider. Missions in Europe, including D-Day, went much better. The glider was even deployed to Burma. It could carry up to 13 troops, or a jeep and four men, or a 75mm Field Gun.

Lindberg FJ-2 Fury Jet Fighter - First Logo Small Box Issue, 1/48, 516

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

Very early Lindberg first issue, featuring the circular Lindberg logo and early short, flat two-piece box. Wonderful Ray Gaedke box art. Correctly molded in brilliant metallic blue with a red nose and clear canopy. Correct early decals and instructions. Please note, the instructions have the circle logo and the rectangular logo, which was not uncommon for early Lindberg kits. This kit has not been started. The parts are either still in the factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Paul Lindberg created plans for stick and tissue flying models that were published in popular modeling magazines in the 1930s. During this time, he marketed wooden flying kits, asking builders to request that your local dealer carry "The Lindberg Line" of models. When plastic kits first appeared, Paul Lindberg and a Mr. Olsen founded O-Lin models, purchased the unsuccessful Varney molds for the Fleet Sub, PT Boat, LST and PT-17. After mold modification, they entered production and quickly cut new molds such as the P-80, Seabee and more. The association with Mr. Olsen did not last long, and Paul Lindberg took over or bought out the molds, thus starting the famous plastic "Lindberg Line". The first box art was simply carry over from O-Lin. Early O-Lin artwork was simple and two -color. However, Ray Gaedke did some late O-Lin boxes such as the Corsair, which was also used by Lindberg. Gaedke artwork was colorful and bold, and Paul Lindberg wasted no time in having Gaedke make the new artwork for the Lindberg Line.
