Nichimo IJN Battleship Yamato With Nichimo Hobby Shop Poster - 51 Inches / 129.5 cm Long For R/C Or Display, 1/200, 1

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Early issue with the finest mold quality and the best example I have ever seen of this model. A US Navy Officer purchased this kit new in Japan and had it shipped back - still in the original Nichimo cardboard shipping box. He never touched the model - it is like new inside and out and even includes a Nichimo advertising poster that was used in hobby shops to promote the kit. Notice the comparison of size, showing how much bigger 1/200 is than the other two scales. The post is in 'very good++' condition as shown. Huge kit is over four feet long and highly detailed with hundreds of parts. Designed to be motorized for remote control operation in water with realistic drive on four propellers. Features all required hardware and wiring for motorizing, a beautiful all-metal gear box for prop drive, metal motor mount, battery boxes, moving main turrets and gun director, individual AA guns, working spotlights and more. The kit has never been started. All parts but two bag ares still factory sealed with the correct Nichimo color headers. The opened bags (metal rods and funnel) have been inventoried complete. The hull and deck were never sealed and they are in mint condition and complete with all the original packing material. The main decks are still rubber-banded to the original blue display cardboard. Includes parts layout, decals and full instruction book. Please note that Nichimio did not provide the electric motors or RC equipment with this kit. Recommended motor is an RS-540 for drive and RE-26 for the turrets and director. This is a large kit. Shipping overseas is expensive. For example, to the UK is $125.00 USD. Service to Australia would likely be around $350 USD because of the size of the box required. NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured.

Dumas Dauntless Commuter Boat And Yacht With 2332 Running Hardware Kit - 49.5 Inch Ship For R/C or Display, 1/15, 1211

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++


Still in mint condition. I received this from a discriminating collector. The model was still sealed in the brown shipping paper from AHC (America's Hobby Center) - never opened! Obviously, I had to open it just to see what the model was. The result is a factory-new kit with all the small parts still internally sealed and the other parts and paperwork untouched. And also included is the rare running hardware set; please see the photos to see what is included in that. Never started and complete. And from the Dumas website - We at Dumas are pleased to be able to take you back to an era of elegance. In 1946 Sparkman and Stevens designed a 66 ft. commuter boat for the express purpose of carrying commuters down the Hudson River into New York. What a glorious way to beat the traffic. These commuters were used by their owners as everyday transportation to and from work, and for pleasure trips to their favorite spots. The most famous of these commuters was the Dauntless. The Dauntless was owned by a prominent New York family. They undoubtedly considered the Dauntless a great diversion from their day to day business dealings. The days of the Dauntless are gone but you can bring them back. The Dauntless features top quality construction materials. The kit is made almost entirely of 1/8 in. mahogany plywood. All parts are cleanly die-cut, and we have included a variety of detail parts including 38 cast metal fittings. The size of the Dauntless leaves the door wide open for different powering methods. The obvious choices would be scale electric power, high speed electric power, or twin gas power, but you may have your own ideas.
