Airfix Westland Whirlwind - Bagged, 1/72, 99

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG+

$24

Aurora Sopwith Camel, 1/48, 102-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$49   

Still factory sealed. This is the 4th known issue of this classic kit, and the second one to share the 102-100 kit number. The blue oval logo dates from the early 1960s. This is only the second box artwork used for this kit, and John Steel replaced Cox for the 'new look' from Aurora. This is part of the famous Aurora WWI series of 1/48 scale aircraft. The series began in 1956 and Aurora added new kits into the early 1960s. The line proved incredibly popular, so these kits were included in the 'mold upgrade' in the 1970s before Aurora went out of business.

Heller Dunkerque Battlecruiser, 1/400, L1025

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$145   

Rare. The Dunkerque-class Battlecruisers were the French response to the German Graf Spee-class and the fast and well-armed Italian ships at the time. If the 1900 to 1930 span of French shipbuilding could be defined as lacking a clear vision or plan, the Strasbourg and her sister decisively ended that period. The products of superior design and engineering, the two sisters would re-define fast capital ships as would their near-sisters Battleships Richelieu and Jean Bart after them. But world events would conspire against these beautiful ships and there visibility in naval history. The Dunkerque was laid down on 24 Dec, 1932 at St. Nazire, launched on 2 Oct, 1935 and put into service on 15 Apr, 1937. Displacement was 26,500 ton and top speed was 30 knots. Main armament was (8) 330mm guns and (16) 130 mm dual purpose. The main and secondary guns were mounted in the first quadruple turrets. Both main 330 mm turrets faced forward and had almost unlimited arcs of fire - so that all main guns could fire when the enemy was sighted or in pursuit. Her superior speed would allow her to escape anything that she could not out-gun. Like most advanced ships of the day she featured the 'All-Or-Nothing' armor design or 'armored box'. The compact design and placement of the main and secondary armament allowed unusually high armor protection for a battlecruiser. Serious consideration was also given to underwater protection, and the ships had a unique and effective (as events would prove) anti-mine/torpedo system with a novel water-exclusive material. At Mers-El-Kebir, the Dunkerque was pinned at the pier. The British fired 15 inch shells, which the Dunkerque's deck armor was surprisingly resistant to. In an unlucky set of events, the auxiliary ship Terre Neuve moored next to her was sunk during the battle with a full load of depth-charges. Later, a torpedo set off the huge explosive cargo. The damage to Dunkerque was immense. She was hastily repaired and fled to Toulon, where she was joined by the hastily repaired Strasbourg. The French tried to repair Dunkerque as best they could but the wartime resources and material were very limited. However, when the Germans threatened to seize the ships, the entire fleet including the two sisters was scuttled in the harbor. The Italians raised the Strasbourg and stripped her of her guns; but she was bombed and sunk by Allied aircraft. In 1945 she was raised again, but salvage was beyond hope. In 1959 she was sold for scrap. Kit has never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Frog HS Buccaneer S.Mk 2A / S.Mk 50 - RAF or South African Airforce, 1/72, F238

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$34   

Still factory sealed. Has decals for both Air Forces, No.12 Sq RAF Honington, 1970 and No. 24 Sq SAAF Waterkfloof, 1970. Typical high quality Frog kit with no rivets and fine panel lines for a realistic model. Features steering nose strut, four anti-ship missiles on wing pylons and optional position landing gear. The Buccaneer was the world's first purpose designed low level 'below the radar' bomber. Low level strike aircraft have a shorter airframe life limit due to the stresses of low level flying, so the Buccaneer was designed to be very strong and even had many sub-assemblies milled from solid metal. Kit features opening unique rotating bomb bay, folding wings and working arresting hook.
