Air Lines Supermarine S-6B (S.6B) Racer, 1/72, 4900

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$18   

Well detailed kit from FROG molds. Never started. NOTE: missing one of four straight float braces. Inventoried with all other parts, decals and instructions present. Box art is by the famous Jo Kotula who did 1930s covers for the magazine 'Model Airplane News' and later the Aurora box art of the late 1950s. Air Lines kits are all Frog molds that the Lines Brothers imported to the USA between 1964-1966. The kits, decals and instructions were made in England, then imported to the USA where Testors created the boxes with the colorful trading cards on the back. There are one or two trading cards on each box which show the boxart but not the advertising/logo.

Airfix Great Western Atlantic Ocean Liner, 1/180, 1701-300

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+

$109   

NOTE: builder kit only! Please read carefully. Large scale issue with fantastic Craftmaster artwork. The Great Western was the first ship specifically built for the Atlantic Ferry Service and was designed by I.K. Brunel (who designed the Great Eastern). When launched in 1837, she carried 120 first class, 20 second class, and beds could be set up for an additional 100 if needed. The crew was 60 men. The first crossing of the Atlantic Ocean was in April of 1838 and took just over 15 days. After crossing the Atlantic 64 times, she ran for 10 years between Southampton and the West Indies before being broken up in 1857. The kit has never been started. NOTE: missing a section and one part of the display stand. The actual ship is missing 1/2 of the smoke stack (a simple cylinder with raised lines and two straight pipes. The other half is there to use as a perfect guide) and part #192 aft mast cross tree. Inventoried with all other parts, sails, rat lines, flag sheet and instructions present. NOTE: the bowsprit is present, but the fore most end is broken off. Best replaced with a section of pulled sprue or stock round plastic stock.

Very rare. First and only issue from 1963; very shortly after this kit was issued, ITC discontinued all plastic kit production.

Strombecker Convair XF2Y (Yf2Y-1) Sea Dart - Supersonic Float Plane - NO Rivet Detail, 1/60, D25-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$155   

From the 1950s. Rare first issue with no rivet detail on the plastic parts. Later issues all had this detail added. Box has great color. Nicely done kit for the time. Molded in dark blue plastic. Has very colorful decals in like-new contiion for this unusual and beautiful aircraft. Never started. Inventoried with all parts, decals, Strombecker club application and instructions present. Strombecker was very well known for producing the finest pre-carved hardwood aircraft and missile kits, but they had a very short journey into the plastic model field. After making the Sea Dart kit in 1956, they added four more for a total of 5 injection molded aircraft kits. All were discontinued in the mid 1960s. The Sea Dart was a supersonic design that could take off and land from water using retractable hydro-skis. Five prototypes were built and over 300 test flights made. The advent of the super carrier spelled the end of the Sea Dart, although 4 still exist on display today.

Revell Lockheed F-94C Starfire Interceptor - With One Piece Stand Arm - Pre 'S' Kit, 1/56, H210-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$175   

1954 Pre-S issue. This is the rare second issue. The first issue was in the simple one-piece box and Revell quickly converted to this two-piece box as it was much more durable and a full-color lithographed 'slick' could be used. For the second issue, Revell added rivet and raised panel line detail as well as landing gear, a two piece box and H210-79 kit number. The famous 'Globe' clear stand was added, but this kit has the rare one piece stand arm and the instructions reflecting that. Revell quickly realized that the one-piece arm was not strong enough, and quickly modified it to the familiar three piece arm for the 3rd issue. The box is in very good++ condition with four solid corners, nice color and gloss and minimal wear with minor insect damage on the corners of one short side. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Decals and instructions are in near mint condition. The original small parts 'krinkle' bag is present as well.

The model has not been started. Inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
