West Side Model Co No. 3 Heisler Brass Locomotive HOn3 Narrow Gauge, 1/87

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

$295   

In rare, investment-grade condition inside and out, please read carefully. Beautiful, like-new condition brass narrow gauge locomotive, hand-built in Japan for West Side Models by the renown Nakamura Seimisu K.K. The original box is in amazing 'near mint+' condition and the model is still wrapped in the original plastic and all three pieces of the factory foam are intact and in 'good' condition. This one-owner model has always been carefully stored in the original box. Under 14x magnification I cannot see but the slightest wear on the wheels, so I would grade it as 'never run' although it was probably test run at Nakamura before shipping. I see no broken parts and no modifications; it looks factory-new. I have no narrow gauge track, so I am unable to test the locomotive, so it is sold "As Is." There is no paperwork present. Must be shipped insured.

Berkeley Super-Brigadier - 58 Inch Wingspan Flying Aircraft For R/C - (Super Brigadier)

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$159   

Very early radio control aircraft with a giant wingspan. In the free-flight roll, it meets the old Pan-American Airways Pay-Load Contest requirements for class A and B. Note the similarity in design to the early free-flight models - most early RC models had this appearance because of the stability required due to the difficult and unpredictable nature of early R/C control. Model features shaped and notched wing edges, die-cut plywood firewall, complete metal hardware, cut out windshield, superb full size plans with building instructions, rubber wheels, covering material and much more. Never started and complete. Berkeley is a very famous manufacturer of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.

A A Hales Ltd Cutty Sark 'Marinecraft' Kit - 17 Inch Wooden Ship Kit, 658

AMT 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Promo With Original Box And Tissue Paper, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$425   

Very, very rare promotional model, especially in this condition and with the original box. The box is stamped "CORVETTE CONV. 1736 SILVER PEARL." This is a one-owner model that was obtained new on November 5, 1965 in Lexington KY. It has never been displayed and has been stored in the original box and tissue since it left the factory. It is 100% complete and original with zero repairs or touch-ups. The paint and chrome are in factory-new condition. There is zero body warp and the clear is in 'mint' condition. I would grade this one 9.5 out of 10 with 10 flawless. The deduction is because there is a closed split (fits back perfectly) at the drivers side vent frame and the A pillar. Nothing is broken off, and the crack closes perfectly (it is invisible), so this is completely repairable; but I'll leave that to the new owner. Even includes the original factory packing paper. The box is complete with all flaps and solid but has wear as shown and age foxing.

International Rectifier IR Lightronic II Remote Control Car, EP42

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$35   

Unique early 1960s (pre-zip code) remote control car kit with a solar cell and two transistor command circuit that you control with a flashlight to make it stop, start and control the speed. This model contains almost two kits but please read carefully. NOTE: one complete car is very neatly assembled. In addition to all parts, it includes the instructions and never used decals. The other car is about 75% complete and unassembled except for very minor construction (front and rear axles and steering are built very neatly). It is missing some smaller parts and the motor and electronics. It also comes with instructions and never used decals. Untested and sold as-is.

Revell Type XXI U2540 (U-boat) - Submarine with Full Interior, 1/144, 05078

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$42   

Large kit with very highly detailed interior and extensive decals. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The Type XXI U-Boats were the world's first true submarines; they could travel at high speeds for great distances underwater and attack without visual contact with the targets. The 'snort' allowed them to recharge the batteries and renew the air, eliminating the last needs for surfacing. A development of the Walther Peroxide Boats, the XXIs were seen as a faster way to put a more advanced submarine into service.

Revell A3J (A-5A) Vigilante Nuclear Bomber, 1/83, H196-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc-

$145   

Widely believed to be the last 'S' kit issued. Hardbox is dated 1959 and has excellent gloss and color. Kit features opening tandem canopies, moving control surfaces, detailed, removable jet engines and two pilots. As the last "S" kit, this kit also incorporated a critical improvement for the time that would become standard only fairly recently: all recessed detail. The entire kit has recessed panel lines and rivet detail-no raised marks. It has an attention to detail that is lacking in many older Pre-S and S kits. Molded in the correct gloss light gray and clear with the "Globe" clear stand. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

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.
