  Renwal Model Kits

Renwal The Visible Head, 1/1, 805-1198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$175   

Rare and the first (and probably only) Renwal issue of one of this classic model kit in full size (1/1 scale). Renwal was big on anatomical science kits in the late 1950s; some sold well, like the Visible Man and Woman. That said, the Visible Head is an amazing model kit with a large number of parts and a display stand. It includes a clear full-size head in two halves, all the bones & muscles in the face, head and neck, all vital organs, the internal structure of the eyes, ears and teeth and much more. It can be taken apart and put back together as often as you wish and comes with a beautiful 16 page color handbook written in everyday language. Inside the model is in factory-new condition. It has never been started. The small parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. One of the containers (at the lower right) is still factory tape sealed. All others have been inventoried complete. Includes instructions in 'excellent+' condition, the color guidebook "The Human Head And Neck" also in near mint condition and the Renwal Guarantee Sheet.

Renwal Major Lanoe Hawker's De Havilland DH-2 - With Aeroskin, 1/48, 281-149

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+

$72   

This is one of Renewal's famous Aeroskin kits in a rare 1/48 release that features markings for the aircraft of the famous Lanoe Hawker and very realistic artwork of the last moments of Lanoe's final battle with the Red Baron. The model has an injection molded inner structure of ribs and stringers like a real aircraft, then the modeler covers it with provided authentic pre-colored Aeroskin fabric. There is no painting needed as elaborate finishes are printed directly on the Aeroskin covering. This results a very realistic and colorful model. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes Aeroskin and instructions. Aeroskin is in superb 'near mint' condition. There is no glue included, but any brush-one liquid cement (like Tamiya) will work for attaching the Aeroskin to the plastic parts.

Renwal Atomic Cannon - M65 280mm with M249 and M250 50 Ton Heavy Gun Lifting Trucks / Transporters, 1/32, 553

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

$345   

Very rare original issue and extremely hard-to-find in factory sealed condition. This is the late 1950s issue and not the common modern reissue. The box top says 'Fully Operating Model Does Everything But Fire' and it is true. The model consists of over 300 parts and has many action features typical of Renwal models. The wheels roll, tractors can be hooked to the cannon which can be stowed in the 'travel' position. The gun can move into the 'fire' position off the tractors and can be realistically trained.

Renwal Atomic Cannon - M65 280mm with M249 and M250 50 Ton Heavy Gun Lifting Trucks / Transporters, 1/32, 553

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$295   

Hard-to-find Renwal first issue of this very desirable kit. Not the common modern reissue. The box top says 'Fully Operating Model Does Everything But Fire' and it is true. It consists of over 300 parts and has many action features typical of Renwal models. The wheels roll, tractors can be hooked to the cannon, which can be stowed in the 'travel' position. The gun can move into the 'fire' position off the tractors and can be trained realistically. It is molded in olive drab plastic. The kit has never been started. The parts that were originally in factory sealed bags are still sealed. The parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete. With decals and instructions present. The box displays better than the 'good' grade; however I graded it as such because in addition to the general wear shown, the upper long side panel has light staining and a tape tear that is 2.25" x .5".

Renwal Nike Ajax Anti-Aircraft Guided Missile - MIM-3 With Launcher and Crew, 1/32, 550

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$145   

Fantastic kit from the 1950s in an 'excellent' condition box. The classic artwork shows the Nike Ajax blowing up what appears to be a B-17 over an American city. Judging from the fiery blast from the launching Ajax in the background, these two ground crew may not make it away from this missile in time. This is an excellent model for that time that still rates well today. It features detailed missile with separating states, operating control surfaces, operating launcher and more. The launcher is designed to connect other models to form an entire Nike Ajax Battery for the ultimate diorama. Molded in olive drab and white. The model has never been started. The white plastic parts and decals are still factory sealed; the olive drab parts were never sealed and have been inventoried complete and includes decals and instructions.

Renwal M-50 Ontos - The Thing With The Sting, 1/32, M557-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$54   

Rare 1950s original issue; not a common reissue. Fantastic first issue 'Blueprint' hardbox artwork and a highly detailed kit featuring 11 parts, combat crew of three, working treads, some interior detail, opening hatches and covers and more. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The Ontos was a unique vehicle. Ontos is a Greek word for 'The Thing' and the vehicles lives up to that. Developed along a new concept in mobile warfare, the Ontos has little defense other than movement but a very powerful offensive punch. It carries six 106mm recoilless rifles and .50 caliber spotting rifles. The firing sequence went like this: the crew of three would get out and hand-load the six large guns. Then the Ontos would quickly move towards the target. Once sited, the gunner would file the .50 caliber spotting rifle. This gun fired a different cartridge, a special low velocity round that matched the trajectory of the 106mm. The spotting round was very accurate and made a visible flash on striking the target. Then he could fire a full salvo of 6 or in steps of two. The 8.5 ton vehicle would then speed away, moving to a safe location to reload.
