Athearn Rock Island F-7A and F-7B Freight Locomotives Genesis DCC Quick Plug Equipped - HO Scale, 1/87, G22084

Metal and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$145   

Superbly detailed Genesis issue powered A and B locomotives in excellent condition. Judging from the very slight wheel wear, these were run perhaps once or twice. There are no broken parts and each engine is 100% complete. I hesitate to call anything mint, so I will grade them both as 'near mint' condition. Not perfect, but close. Includes all three factory boxes (a box for each locomotive and the external sleeve for both those boxes), all the original factory plastic and dark gray foam packing and the following paperwork: (2) "FlyWheel Drive F-Unit" exploded diagrams and parts sheet and (2) "Atheran News" sign up sheets. I have no way to test these locomotives so they are sold as-is.

Guillows SE-5A Scout - 24 inch Wingspan for Free Flight or R/C Conversion, 202

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$34   

Large scale, well detailed model that can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using modern small, light servos and receivers. Features scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform nose/cowl and engine, full color decals, tissue, die cut balsa parts, rubber motor, plywood firewall, illustrated, detailed instructions and excellent full size plans. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Guillow's founder, Paul K. Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.

Revell Douglas AD-6 Skyraider (AH-1) Navy Attack Aircraft - 'S' Issue, 1/40, H269-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$195   

Very rare original issue from 1959. The box states "So Realistic It Does Everything But Fly!" and it holds to that promise! The model is packed with action features; wings fold, dive brakes operate, arresting hook moves, canopy slides to show full cockpit, landing gear retracts and cowling comes off to show fully detailed engine. The most interesting item is the landing gear retract and extension mechanism. It works through a very complicated gear system that is operated from a central point. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. NOTE: two very fine push rods are neatly broken from the engine front, which is common. They are both included so you can repair them. The box displays better than "Excellent" but is graded as such as there is moderate shelf/storage wear on one long side and average wear on the the other three sides.

Airfix NA-39 Blackburn Buccaneer - Craftmaster Issue, 1/72, 1404-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+

$24   

One of the more dramatic Craftmaster boxes. A British carrier launches heavily battle-damaged Buccaneers with enemy ships within visual range. Other Buccaneers are taking heavy and accurate fire from the enemy, while one ship is engulfed in flames. Propeller driven aircraft fall burning from the sky. 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. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
