Strombecker Cessna T-37A Tweet - USAF Jet Primary Trainer, 1/48, D33-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


From the mid 1950s. 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. They made a total of 5 molds for plastic injected aircraft kits, the 1956 Sea Dart being the first. All were discontinued in the mid 1960s. One kit was this T-37A, which after Strombecker's demise, was issued as an Aurora kit. This is a very nice kit for that time with operating landing gear, dive brakes and canopy, as well as 'good' cockpit detail and instruction and student pilot figures. Includes very colorful and extensive decals in 'excellent' condition and full instructions with two photos of the completed model and one photo of the real aircraft, exploded parts diagram and very nicely illustrated building steps. Molded in silver and clear. Never started. Inventoried and NOTE: missing one part, the hinge frame for the canopy. Can be built without this part (Aurora eliminated it in their issues). Otherwise includes all other parts, decals and instructions.

MPC 1972 Pontiac Grand Prix - Stock / Ski Machine / Spoof Version, 1/25, 1-7221-250

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


Very rare original issue from 1972 and even rarer in this condition. Includes a factory-painted body, and the paint is in 'mint' condition. It is still in the factory protective wrapping and I have protected it even better for shipping. Well molded for that time and has parts to build any of the three versions listed- and the ski team vehicle includes accessories. Features detailed complete engine, engine compartment, opening hood, full interior, rotating wheels, exhaust and underside detail. Painted in metallic gloss brown and molded in clear, red tinted clear, and chrome plate. With real rubber tires. Never started. All the parts that were factory sealed are still sealed; the parts that were not (clear and chrome) have been inventoried complete. With instructions and decals.

Imai Panzer IV -F2 - Sd.Kfz.161 Panzerkampfwagen IV For Remote Control, 1/15, 519

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Very rare, early issue with glossy artwork. Giant scale (1/15), fully motorized tank model intended for R/C operation. Features three motors, all in the original Mabuchi boxes- two RE-56 size drivers with independent, all-metal gear boxes (one for each track), one Mabuchi TKK 25 size with an all metal gear box for turret rotation, an amazing hardware kit with metal motor mounts, three all metal gear boxes, brass gear, brass pre-wired and soldered battery contacts, full set of pre-wired switches and prewired 7 pin plug and socket set, all machine screws and nuts, very realistic individual track links, full crew, opening crew and rear engine hatches and more. Never started. All the internal presentation cardboard is present and 'excellent.' Almost all parts are still in the factory sealed bags. The few that were not sealed are inventoried complete. With decals and instructions. Please note, the box displays better than the 'good' grade but is graded as such because there is some masking tape on the sides and on split corners. Although the kit is designed for R/C operation, Imai did not include the R/C equipment. The builder will need to furnish that. NOTE: I have done my best to account for the hardware, but it is all still factory sealed, making an accurate count impossible. In a worst case scenario it may be missing a few common nuts or bolts.
