Hawk Hawaiian Catamaran - Twin Hull Sailing Yacht, 300

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

$295   

For the advanced collector. Very rare kit from 1956. The very large Hawk Hawaiian Catamaran was issued only once. The model is based on an actual Waikiki Beach sailing ship. The scale is not given, but the kit measures 16 inches long and about 20 inches tall when assembled. True scale model with excellent detail for that time. Features one piece catamaran hulls, twin rudders with left and right tillers and connecting bar, cabin, life preservers, stanchions, metal hand rails, full vacuform billowing sails, rigging blocks, full rigging instructions, rigging material and color decals. The hulls, life preservers and rudders are molded in gloss pink, the cabin and hull decking are gloss baby blue and the masts, blocks, cleats and numerous other parts are molded in a realistic swirl wood tan. The sails are still in mint condition thanks to the special packing from the Hawk factory. The kit has never been started. When you open it up, it is exactly as it left the factory. All small parts and decals are still factory sealed in small bags. The cabin, two hulls and sails were never in factory bags but are complete and mint. All interior factory cardboard display pieces are intact and in excellent condition. The contents are still protected by the original factory tissue. The instructions are one large sheet and are in near mint condition. The box top has excellent color and gloss but has general wear as shown.

On the 4th of October 1957 a specially modified R-7 Missile launched the first man-made satellite named PS-1 or "Sputnik" into orbit. PS-1 (simple satellite number one) broadcast for 92 days on 20.005 and 40.002 Mhz. Nicely molded with all fine recessed panel line detail - I believe it is the ex-Apex kit. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions.

MPC Pilgrim Observer Space Station Nuclear Powered With Iron On Patch, 1/100, 9001

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$59   

Rare original issue; not the common reissue. Still contains the correct iron-on patches (Pilgrim badge and two USA flags) and the Flight Data and Technical Guide. This offering from MPC is one of the most interesting and a classic among Science Fiction kits. The model dates from 1975. Large 1/100 scale kit is 17 inch long, has excellent detail and a large clear section to show interior detail. Fourteen movable parts allow you to display or change the ship's configuration from "Launch" to "Earth's Atmosphere Entry" to "Space Cruise". The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions. There was a time when space research was not aimed at the earth's orbit and moon, but at distant planets in our solar system and eventually beyond. Planning went much further than most people are aware. The main limitation was seen as the chemical rocket motor. It could only be fired once and the specific impulse was limited. To overcome these limitations, the United States embarked on a large program to build the nuclear rocket engine. Unlike the nuclear aircraft engine, this program overcame the technical obstacles placed before it was VERY successful. The effort resulted in numerous test engines up through the Phoebes 5000 MW monster, which is still the world's most powerful reactor. The nuclear engines could run at full power for an hour, then be shut down and restarted up to a dozen times or more. Also, the flow of fuel (liquid hydrogen) could be regulated through turbo-pumps to 'throttle' the engine just as one does a car engine. Crew radiation shielding from the engine was less than requirements for cosmic ray shielding. At one point, a KIWI series reactor (KIWI-TNT) was blown up on purpose to test the environmental impact; it was minimal and clean up went quickly. The final result was to be a space rated engine called NERVA, or Nuclear Engine for Rocket Vehicle Application. Before the project was terminated, many vehicles were designed for deep space exploration based on these amazing engines.

Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. NOTE: three small parts are white plastic. They are from a later issue of this same kit. Please notice that the box has excellent color and gloss but is graded 'fair++' because of the vertical tear at the upper right (just forward of the rudder) and the light writing below the tail wheel.
