Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

$69   

Still factory 'round tape' sealed. Dated 2012. I cannot confirm it, but this may be a modification of the excellent Matchbox kit with additional parts. There was another Revell issue (with the same part number) called "SA 330 Puma BGS" that was from Matchbox molds but also included large auxiliary tanks with floats, rescue cable winch, weather radar segment and decals for one BGS sea version and a regular BGS variant. IF (a big IF) this is the Matchbox model, then it features complete interior, folding passenger seats, optional position floor exit, detailed jet engines with removable cowls, complete cockpit, rotating main and tail rotors, opening doors and more.

Advanced Molding Corp Cunningham Chamption Sports Car - (pre-Aurora), 1/32, 20

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$179   

Very rare and for the advanced collector of early plastic models. Even rarer in this condition; this is from old store stock that was recently discovered and has never been in public hands. Advanced Molding issued 7 pioneering plastic car kits in 1954. But in 1955, Aurora purchased the molds then released them (the first in '55) under the Aurora name and artwork. They became famous under the Aurora name but virtually unknown under the original Advanced label because they were issued for a year or less. Advanced cleverly advertised all 7 kits on each box - the box top shows the kit inside, and the long side panels show 3 on each side. The 7 were the Cunningham, MG, Jaguar, Alfa Romeo, Ferrari Sportster, Corvette and Ferrari 342 America. This kit is the Cunningham, and is molded in white and is still sealed in the original factory krinkle clear plastic bag. I have not removed it from the box; it is exactly as it was shipped from the factory. With instructions in mint condition. The box is in extraordinary 'near mint' condition as well, with very light surface wear (as shown) as the only flaws. Advanced was located at 54 West 21st Street, New York 10, NY. After selling the cars, Advanced remained in the plastic model business with the Trailblazers HO kits from 1955 centered around the famous "General." It was issued as a locomotive and tender, or just the cars as set (passenger, mail combine, baggage, box car, flat car and caboose), or the cars each separately and the rare freight set which included the locomotive and tender, box car, flat car and caboose.

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$36   

Please read the article on this website about older HO train kits and the modeling revolution they caused in the late 1930s/1940s. During the golden era of realistic train models, La Belle Woodworking Company created perhaps the very finest scale kits of early American passenger equipment. The kit features die cut hardwood parts (no balsa) such as pre-cut and scribed sides with all windows factory cut, car ends done in the same fashion, carved clerestory roof, tinted clear clerestory window material, working end diaphragms, excellent underside details & other metal details, building instructions and full size plans. I have seen these models built and they look identical to the real prototypes. The kit has not been started and is complete with all parts, plans and instructions.
