Monogram Auto Racing Trio Gift Set - The Hot Rod-The Midget Racer-The Indianapolis Racer, 1/24, MGP8-298

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+++

$850   

One of Monogram's first plastic kit Gift Sets. Issued once in 1957 and very rare. Please read the condition of each kit carefully as there is some assembly. 'Hot Rod' is assembled and complete other than thin, flat windshield. Missing instructions. The 'Indy Car' is complete but has minor assembly to the engine block and some small details are painted silver; decals are excellent but instructions are missing. Midget Racer has not been started and is complete, including good instructions and decals. The box has wonderful color but wear as shown.

Monogram B-24 Liberator Speedee-Bilt - Five Star Super Deluxe Kit, 1/60, H4-495

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$695   

Dated 1954. This is the finest H4 Liberator that I have seen. The box has like-new color and gloss, four solid corners and only light general wear. The inside is like new also. Classic early multi-media kit with a fantastic internal box presentation. Before injection molded plastic kits were common, Monogram issued the famous 'Speedee-Bilt' and 'Super Kits' which featured injection molded details and precarved wooden parts. Of these, the Speede-Bilt B-24 and B-17 were the finest. These kits are rare today due to their relatively high original price of $4.95. This example is inventoried 100% complete with all parts, glue, dope, decals, sand paper, plans and instruction book. The kit has never been started. Still has all internal packing as shown. Amazingly, the celluloid plastic parts range from no warping to very slight warping. This is very rare, as that type of plastic was unstable and warp easily over time. Instructions, decals and plans are 'near mint' also, as are the parts sheets. No wooden parts have been punched out. This kit must be shipped insured.
