Dolphin Capellini Italian Navy Submarine Marcello Class, 1/400, D012

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$54   

Very rare. Beautifully cast resin kit with numerous cast metal details, many photoetched parts, options for waterline or full hull and even a display stand. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions. CAppellini was a very successful Italian Navy submarine with a very interesting war record. She was started in Le Spezia on April 25, 1938 and launched on May 14, 1939. The Regio Marina took delivery of her on September 23, 1939. After training and working up, Cappellini left for her first war patrol with Captain Cristiano Masi for the Atlantic. The patrol did not go well; she was sighted at least twice and the British destroyer Vidette fired torpedoes at the submarine, which missed. But the Cappellini failed to score and eventually went to a Spanish Harbor then to La Spezia. The Navy changed commanders, putting Corvette Captain Salvatore Todaro in charge and this seemed to make a big difference. He navigated the Straight of Gibraltar submerged on Sept. 29 and broke out into the Atlantic. She sank the armed vessel Kabalo with torpedoes and used guns to sink the British merchant Shakespeare. On January 14 she sunk the British auxiliary cruiser Eumaeus after a long two hour battle involving both torpedoes and guns. On another mission in April of 1941, Todaro attacked two large vessels and sank one. Command changed for the next voyage to Lieutenant Aldo Lenzi and he proved as brave as Todaro, sinking the British Miguel de Larrinaga with two torpedoes near the Azores. Lieutenant Marco Revedin commanded Cappellini next, sinking the merchant vessel Tisnaren and the tanker Dinsdale. On Sept 13 she took part in the search for survivors from the Laconia, which U-156 had sunk. She rescued many survivors but naturally had little room for them; Revedin call the French and they too the survivors to shore. In may of 1943, Cappellini was converted into a 'carriage' submarine for cargo and placed under Captain Walter Auconi; she left for Singapore and arrived on July 10th and was given the new name Aquila III. According to official reports, the submarine was so overloaded that she was hardly buoyant; only the tip of the bow and part of the conning tower were above the water. After avoiding many air attackers, she did arrive safely but with completely dry fuel tanks. After unloading cargo Cappellini went to Sebang as planned to meet the submarine Giuliani. But with the situation in Italy in flux, the Japanese made various excuses and seized the submarine. The put the crew in a POW camp. And handed the submarine over to the Germans as UIT-24. However, some of the enlisted men in the POW camp decided to fight alongside the Germans and a mixed crew was formed with Oberleutnant-zur-See Heinrich Pahls as commander. She had five patrols like this until Germany surrendered; at that point the Japanese took her over again and assigned the name I-503. She operated that way until the end of the war. The Cappellini was eventually captured by the United States and sank in the deep waters off Kobe on April 16th, 1946.

Renwal M65 280mm Atomic Cannon with M249 and M250 50 Ton Heavy Gun Lifting Truck/Transporters, 1/32, 553

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$275   

Hard-to-find Renwal late 1950s/early '60s issue of this very desirable kit- not the common Revell reissue. The box top says 'Fully Operating Model Does Everything But Fire' and it is true. It consists of over 300 parts and has many action features typical of Renwal models. The wheels roll, tractors can be hooked to the cannon which can be stowed in the 'travel' position. The gun can move into the 'fire' position off the tractors and can be trained realistically. Molded in the correct olive drab plastic. The kit has never been started. The parts are as they came from the factory: the majority of them are still in the Renwal staple factory sealed bags. The trees that Renwal never sealed have been inventoried complete. With decals and instructions. The factory blue and pink "A" and "B" signs are present in the sealed bags. Decals are in 'very good+' condition and flat. The instructions are 'excellent' with yellowing and very minor bug damage as the only real flaw. The box displays grades 'Very Good' but displays slightly better. But I graded it as such because there was one closed-split corner and general light wear and slight bug damage on the lower edges and corners. The corner has been fixed correctly with glue only (no tape). The lower box tray is very nice also and has four solid corners but one long closed split on a seam.

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

$34   

Still factory sealed. Kit features balsa sheet construction (no tissue needed), building instructions, hardware, wheels and canopy material (if required and propeller. Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998. When sales sagged, Comet's response was the easier to build Struct-O-Speed series with a significant amount of prefabrication that dramatically reduced assembly time. Light and well designed, these kits flew well.
