Novo Techna Soviet Type D Series I Submarine, 1/400, K4004

Plastic Model Kit

$10   

Ex-Soviet Union kit that is very well molded for that time with very fine detail and hull drain holes. Full hull model measures 7.5 inches long when assembled and includes display stand and decals. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags, which is attached to cardstock that is folded in two. At times the factory workers had to get pretty creative because of a shortage of staples. Beyond staples, I have seen the bag of parts attached with tape, a clothing snap, a rivet or even sewn on with thread!

Welsh Vickers Super VC-10 - East African Airlines, 1/144, SL38

$24   

Very high quality vac kit with cast metal details. Never started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed bags. The big parts were never sealed and have been inventoried complete including very colorful 'East African' decals and instructions. NOTE: the large decal sheet is cut in half. All that I have seen are like that; perhaps it was done at the factory.

La Belle D&RG Closed Vestibule Coach HOn3 Narrow Gauge - Craftsman Model, 1/87, HOn3-25

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$28   

Please read the article on this website about older HO train kits and the modeling revolution they caused in the late 1930s/1940s. During the golden era of realistic train models, La Belle Woodworking Company created perhaps the very finest scale kits of early American passenger equipment. The kit features die cut hardwood parts (no balsa) such as pre-cut and scribed sides with all windows factory cut, car ends done in the same fashion, carved clerestory roof, tinted clear clerestory window material, working end diaphragms, excellent underside details & other metal details, building instructions and full size plans. I have seen these models built and they look identical to the real prototypes. The kit has not been started and is complete with all parts, plans and instructions.

This is the Saturn V that is 43.25 inches high and 3.93 inches in diameter. Recommended engine is the D12-3. The kit has never been started. All of the parts that Estes factory sealed are still in the factory sealed bags. The larger parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete. Includes decals and all instructions. The box has damage as shown, but inside the kit is very nice. The decals & vacuform wrapping are in 'mint' condition. All body tubes but one are very straight; the large BT101 body tube is slightly oval but not creased or bent. I have carefully packed it with wadded up paper to bring it back out to round and protect it during shipping. BT101 tubes are available on line from at least one vendor.

Revell 1910 Cadillac Limousine Factory Display - Built Up With Base - Highway Pioneers, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$59   

This is a Revell-factory built display built for hobby shop promotional use around 1954/55. The intention was simple- if hobby shops would purchase and show these attractively built displays, potential buyers would see them and immediately purchase the kit. This probably worked well; but the hitch was that these displays were expensive for the 1950s, so few hobby shops could afford them. There were other difficulties too. Once in public, there was heavy attrition; parts easily broke, and when the new kits came out next year, they were thrown away to make room for more. Which makes condition of this one even more exceptional. The actual model is very neatly built and Revell factory airbrushed. You can always tell the Revell-built models by the airbrushing and the way the parts were masked. The actual car is complete, nothing is broken and there are no repairs. Even the base is in very good condition; however the clear cover is missing and the car could use a cleaning. Before the 1950s 'model building' never made the top 10 list of boy's activities. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream. Shortly after the turn of the century, many dedicated modelers built flying or static airplanes, ship, train, automotive or other subjects. Basic kits existed, but the majority of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s. The phenomenon of the Revell/Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' car 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 could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real car. The Highway Pioneers series lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys.
