Lindberg Air Force Rescue Boat Motorized, 1/72, 706M-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$155   

Rare kit from the 1950s with classic Ray Gaedeke artwork. Motorized and designed for water operation; easily converted to R/C. this large-scale kit was very well detailed for that time, featuring clear hull and superstructure windows, all deck fittings down to ammo boxes and flag staffs, 6 piece 20mm anti-aircraft guns, full superstructure and bridge with horns, search lights, front and rear radar antennas and more, life boat, stretchers, opening rear rescue transom with boarding ladder, gun and bridge crew members, stanchions and railing rigging instructions, display stand and more. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including all parts, decals, flag sheet and instructions. Advertised by Lindberg as 1/72 but is actually closer to 1/88 scale. The Air Force Rescue Boats were the fastest among all Air Force craft. Built by Detroit Basin Inc, they were designed to reach a downed aircraft very quickly and rescue the crew in the least possible time. They were powered by three 1,500 horsepower Packard V-12 gasoline engines and fully crewed by 14 men and 2 officers. After reaching a downed aircraft, the pilots were brought aboard through a gate in the transom. In the event the flight crew was injured, the well in the stern leads directly into a sick bay with 12 litters. To ward off attackers, these vessels were equipped with two 20mm twin mount cannons and plenty of ammunition. They had radar and could operate in all weather conditions.

Revell 1910 International Auto Wagon - Highway Pioneers US Antique Series, 1/32, H62-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$64   

1954 early issue molded in bright yellow plastic. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. 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.

Features detailed suspension and drive line and includes large instruction2 with numbered parts layout, completely illustrated step-by-step instructions, and text instructions and automobile history in French.
