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.

Air Lines kits are all Frog molds that the Lines Brothers imported to the USA between 1964-1966.

There are one or two trading cards on each box which show the boxart but not the advertising/logo.

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.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor

$29   

First issue from the early 1950s in the one-piece box. Molded in high gloss yellow and brown. The model has not been started. Complete with instructions, decals and all parts. The earliest issues of this kit did not have decals; this one does. That dates is as late in the first release. In the 1920s through the 1940s Hawk made constant scale 1/48 aircraft kits from wood. In 1946 they added plastic injection molded kits to the line and were possibly the first injection molded kit manufacturer in the USA. When Hawk made an early jump to all-plastic kits they kept the 1/48 scale and created these new one-piece boxes with two color artwork. NOTE: The box is complete but has numerous tears, tape marks, tape stains etc as shown.

Pavla Focke-Achgelis FA-330 Helicopter, 1/72, 72015

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$26   

Limited production model with injection molded parts and photoetched details. Unique German one-man early recon U-Boat/battlefield helicopter. Never started. Factory sealed bag with decals and instructions. The primary use of the FA-330 was by the Kreigsmarine, particularly U-Boats. Before radar, the U-boat visual search capacity was about 10 miles on an absolutely clear day, due to the fact the conning tower elevation was only about 15' above the water when surfaced. To compensate, the U-boat Arm came up with this helicopter idea to achieve additional height for extending the visual distance to the horizon. The FA-330 stayed in a water-tight canister on the deck casing, aft of the AA gun mount wintergarden and when surfaced the "chopper" would be pulled-out, unfolded, manned with a pilot/observer and deployed on a 100-meter cable. While towed at surface speed of the U-boat, the increased height extended the horizon distance 2-3 times, allowing the observer to actually see "over" the horizon. The tether line also had a pair of communication wires so the observer could communicate directly to the U-boat watch officer. On spotting a target, the 330 would be winched-in, folded-up and put back in the canister with the greatest of speed. (Thanks to Mike Hamrick for the additional history)
