Airfix Short Sunderland Craftmaster Issue, 1/72, 1-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$36   

Sale Pending
Email for availability.

SALE! Classic 1960s issue with great artwork. A merchant ship is sinking on the left and the crew is in lifeboats in the foreground on lower side panel. The Sunderland is preparing to rescue them, while the other Sunderland depth-charges the U-boat responsible for the sinking. Kit features beaching gear, rotating turrets with elevating guns, movable control surfaces, external bomb load and rotating props. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The box displays slight better than the grade but is 'Good' because there is blue painting tape on some of the box sides. The Sunderland's 21-year record with the RAF has made it a legend. Derived from the Empire Class Flying Boat Airliners, Sunderland IIIs had a top speed of 210 mph and an endurance of 12 hours. These qualities made the Sunderland a superb platform for North Sea and North Atlantic patrols, ASW and SAR. Crews usually loved the airplane; its large size afforded many airborne comforts that bomber or fighter crews could only dream of, such as bunk, a head and an area for food preparation.

Monogram Racing Mercedes 540K Slot Car With Tiger X-200 Motor - Race As Stock Or Classic, 1/24, SR2407-698

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$375   

Very rare model for the advanced Monogram collector or slot car enthusiast. Dated 1964. When the slot car craze took hold, Monogram boldly introduced nine very well engineered 1/24 and 1/32 kits. The models were so well done and expensive that they did not sell well; $7 was a small fortune back when most models were between 29 and 98 cents. The Monogram Mercedes claims to be the "Most Complete Detailed Racing Model - Ready to Assemble and Go!" and it was no idle boast. Features light-weight brass chassis that is strong and rigid, precision steel threaded-end axles, bronze bearings, steel drawn crown gear, nylon pickup, braided pickup brushes, brass screws, nut and other hardware, precision lightweight aluminum machined wheels with threaded hubs, powerful new tiger X-200 12V motor, Tiger Traction rubber racing tires with complete Goodyear details and more. The car parts are molded in red, white, chrome plate and clear plastic. Inside, all of the interior display cardboard and plastic is intact and in superb condition. All of the parts that were originally factory sealed are still factory sealed except the motor. The motor was removed for inspection only - it has never been run and is NOS. The parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried 100% complete and includes 'near mint' condition decals. All the paperwork is complete (which is rare), including the instructions, the " Tuning Tips / Alignment / International Racing Colors" booklet and a beautiful full color mini-catalog for the entire series of Monogram Slot Cars. The instructions are excellent other than a 1.5 inch closed tear. Please NOTE that the box has correct and neat repairs to three closed split corners. They were repaired from the inside with light cardstock and book binding cement. The entire line of Monogram Slot Cars consisted of a 1/32 MGA Sports Car, 1/32 Deuce Roadster and the following 1/24 scale vehicles: '55 Chevy Hardtop, '40 Ford Pickup, Duesenberg, '34 Ford Coupe, '36 Ford Coupe, '58 T-Bird and Mercedes 540K. If you know your Monogram cars, you can see that Monogram wisely utilized the molds of pre-existing Four Star kits to make these motorized versions from.

Guillows Jetfire Glider - Bagged

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$36   

Still factory sealed. 15 Cent issue from the late 1960s or early 1970s. The famous and popular Jetfire features a real plastic canopy with pilot outline, completely diecut parts with colorful red printing, assembled in less than a minute and was ready to fly! 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 2014.
