Revell Whip-Fly Russian Yak-25 Flashlight - Sound and Streamers, 1/50, H158-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$125   

Rare. Based on the 1950s Yak-25 "S" kit, the Flashlight Whip Fly comes with USSR decals, flight ballast, handle, 12 feet of control line, control ring, colorful streamers for the jet engines and a underside pod which is a in-flight whistle! Never started. All parts and all paperwork are still in the factory sealed bag. The long side of the box shows the complete Whip-Fly series with the action box art, which includes H151 F9F-8 Cougar, H152 F-84F, H153 F-89D Scorpion, H154 F8U-1 Crusader, H155 F-39 Airacobra and H156 F-101A Voodoo. Although not listed yet, there was also a Whip-Fly Canberra, F-106 and Yak-25 Flashlight. The Whip-Fly series seemed like a good idea...at first. Revell quickly realized that spinning heavily-ballasted, sharp objects at dizzying speeds in or outside the home near groups of children was not the best idea. The series was quickly discontinued.

Revell Lockheed ASW P-3A Orion, 1/115, H163-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$44   

Hardbox issue is copyright dated 1965. Purchased new on May 12, 1966 at S.S. Kresge Department Store in Cleveland, Ohio. The flaws in the Lockheed Electra airliner ensured that it had a short service life in commercial service. But the sound design was modified into one of the most successful and long-serving of all ASW aircraft - the Orion. Revell seized upon this opportunity to recoup some of the money sunk into the Electra molds. The molds were modified to make this kit, the 'A' version of the venerable patrol aircraft. Features optional position landing gear and loading door and movable wheels and props. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Varney Northern Pacific 40' Wood Refrigerator (Reefer) Car - With Metal Truck Set - Wood and Metal HO Scale Craftsman Train Kit, HO, R-45

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$48   

Varney was one of the most known names in early HO model railroading. Gordon Varney was visionary in early business years. When HO was just gaining in popularity in the late 1930s, Varney sold all of his successful 'O' gauge moldings and casting to concentrate exclusively on HO gauge. Judging from the style of kit, this one is from the 1950s. Features all metal main parts that are factory painted and lettered; metal and plastic details, metal truck set and more. The kit has not been started. Inventoried complete with all parts and instructions present. The car sides and end are in 'excellent+' condition. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Hudson Miniatures 1903 Cadillac - Old Timers, 1/16

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$42   

Dated 1949 and very highly detailed and prefabricated for that time. Large scale kit measures 7 inches long when built. Features plastic wheels, steering and lamps, die cut and factory machines wooden parts and a small number of metal and accessory parts. The kit has never been started. The small parts are still factory bag sealed and all other parts have been inventoried present including highly detailed plans/instructions. The 1903 Cadillac was the very first production Caddy and the car that began the legend. This particular model was capable of 30 mph with four passengers. Its 11 hp engine could negotiate a 45% grade with ease. The car was first test driven on Oct 17, 1902. In January of '03 it was taken to the New York Automobile show where orders for 2286 were placed. By mid week, Cadillac announced that were 'Sold Out.' This makes sense when you realize that in 1903 all cars had a rough machine-shop or 'garage' fit and finish; the new Cadillac looked like a Jewel in comparison. Later that year the Cadillac placed or won challenges and reliability contests worldwide and earned the status of 'Standard of the World.' Hudson Miniatures created a very popular line of automobile kits in a constant 1/16 scale shortly after WWII. The kits sold very well...so well that you could argue that Gowland & Gowland borrowed Hudson's subject matter for their ground-breaking 'Highway Pioneers.' The Hudson Miniatures 'Old Timers' even spawned a line of imitators, with Fador's 'Smallster' being one of the better in quality. Sales did drop on the appearance and popularity of the much smaller (and less accurate) Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' in 1951. When the all-injection molded Gowland kits proved not to be a passing fad, Hudson quickly planned and released his own all-plastic, small-scale competition called 'Lil' Old Timers Quickie Kits.' The kits were of excellent quality, but it was too little too late. Additionally, sales of the excellent wooden kits faltered further in the next few years with the introduction of accurate, 1/24 and 1/32 all-plastic cars in the mid 1950s. This forced Hudson to discontinue the wood kits and the plastic line was sold to Revell and subsequently re-released. Today, these excellent, big 1/16 kits are often the only model available of these early automobiles. In the mid 1960s Aurora thought so highly of Hudson Miniatures that they purchased the wood kit assets and released a very small number of these in all-plastic models.

Aurora German Tiger Tank, 1/48, 312-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$59   

Hard to find 1/48 scale armor kit. John Steel hard-box art is dated 1964. The box has very good color and gloss, no tape or price tag marks and four solid corners. Light, general and even wear are the only flaws. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. NOTE: the treads are intact and 'near mint' but there are tread burns on the inside of one side panel (not visible when built), inside of the lower hull panel (again, not seen when built) and on the gun barrel. The barrel is all there but significantly damaged by the burns. The decal backing paper has bug damage but the actual transfers are intact.
