Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$165   

Third issue of this classic kit. The box is dated 1956 but you can see the new oval logo moved to the lower right with 'Famous Fighters' in the border which would date this kit to 1958-59.

Large kit features cockpit, spinning rotors, rotating wheels and opening doors. Molded in the correct gloss silver and clear plastic.

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+

$129   

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 simply 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 plastic.

Hawk Nieuport 17 - Flip-Top Box Issue, 1/48, 706

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.

$58   

1969 issue. This is the about the fourth (perhaps fifth?) issue of the Vigilante bomber 'S' kit that Revell produced in 1959. A superb model for that time, it features all fine recessed panel lines, very good scale detail, opening tandem canopies, moving elevators, detailed, removable jet engines and two pilots. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Revell F-102A Delta Dagger - Large Scale with Working Features - 'S' Issue, 1/48, H281-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$175   

Sensational 'S' action model dated 1958. This is the first issue with the -198 price extension and 'S' Cement logos on the long box sides.

Landing gear and flaps retract and extend when canopy is opened and closed. Removable detailed engine and movable control surfaces. Weapons bay opens to show AIM-4 Falcon missiles. Long after this kit stopped being a big seller in the USA, it found favor in Japan, where at least two issues were made in the 1960s and early 1970s. Molded in silver and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Decals and instructions are 'excellent' with typical yellowing as the only flaw.

The few parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions. Shipping insurance (and Express Mail for international customers) is required.

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.
