Airframe Siemens-Schuckert D.IV (D-IV) or D.III (D-III) - Bagged, 1/72

Vacuform Model Kit

$8   

Still factory sealed. Basic vac kit with some molded in detail. Comes with alternate parts so you can build the D-IV or the D-III. Certain modeling skills are required to build vacuform kits. Not recommended for beginners. The D-III was renowned for it's incredible rate of climb, but was plagued by engine trouble. The D-IV was designed to have a higher speed in level flight, and in some respects was a better fighter than the famous Fokker D-VII.

Renwal Curtiss Goshawk F11C-2 Aeroskin - (F112C) USS Saratoga, 1/48, 282-149

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG++

$79   

Still factory sealed but the seal has split and drawn the box concave. This is one of Renewal's famous Aeroskin kits, and a rare large one in 1/48. Features markings for the aircraft of "High Hat Squadron", VF-1B commander Seligman aboard the USS Saratoga in the early 1930s. 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 little painting needed as elaborate finishes are printed directly on the Aeroskin covering. This results a very realistic and colorful model.

StromBecker Lockheed F-94 Jet, C-43

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$79   

Excellent 1950s kit. The carving is done to the final shape. When complete it makes an impressive desk top display. Features all high-quality hardwood main parts, clear plastic canopy, full color decals, glue, wood filler, sandpaper and special display stand. Never started. Inventoried complete with all parts and plans. Box displays better than the 'good-' grade but is graded such because there are many pieces of clear tape on the short box ends. Before plastic kits were introduced, Strombecker was famous as the premier hardwood preshaped model manufacturer. In the 1940s and 1950s, Strombecker kits were flawlessly engineered but not inexpensive. All wooden parts are hardwood and are precarved to shape - you only had to glue, sand and paint to finish them.

Orange Crush-Revell 1900 Packard Roadmaster, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$79   

Very rare kit with a fascinating history. Around 1958/59, Orange Crush of Mexico offered a promotion. They offered free, colorful, plastic model cars if you collected correctly-marked Orange Crush bottle caps. The models are 1/32 scale Revell Highway Pioneer series - although there is no mention of Revell or Lodela anywhere on the box. Orange Crush had the boxes and even the instructions specially made for them with no mention of a manufacturer. They were never given numbers. The boxes were very thin and fragile cardboard. This has contributed to wear and you must be very cautious with them. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bag and the instructions are sealed in the bag as well. You could redeem your caps two ways - at the Orange Crush truck and at a Modelandia Hobby House. The box sides show the 18 cars in the series. Orange Crush also released two full-color booklets and a complete paint set for the cars. A colorful cardboard box held 7 colors of paint in glass bottles, complete with 'Orange Crush' screw-on caps! The entire promotion was done in coordination with Modelandia Hobby House which had up to 19 stores. Modelandia's name appears on each of the boxes and the paint as well. Robina S.A. was the bottler or distributor of Orange Crush in Mexico at that time. The box side lists the other 18 kits with small color pictures of each and shows three sizes of OC - Family Size (Familiar), Grand (Grande) and Normal. You could also obtain models with Titan bottle caps. Titan was also bottled by Robina and came in large (Titan) and smaller (Titancito) sizes and apparently more than one flavor. We do not know how Orange Crush had access to the plastic kits or who sealed the internal bags with the Crush instructions inside them. We can assume that it may have been Lodela, since they would have had access to the Revell molds. It is not know for how long the promotion lasted, but Orange Crush was one of the most dominant soft drinks in Mexico at that time. Here is one clue: some boxes claim that Modelandia had 13 locations; other boxes, which obviously came later on, claim 19 locations. This may indicate that this promotion went on for a significant amount of time.
