Revell USS Tarawa LHA-1 Assault Carrier, 1/720, H406

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$39   

Dated 1977 and a very nice kit for that time, featuring the internal rear bay with opening door for launching boats, 2 landing craft with tanks, 2 CH-26 and 2 UH-1 Helicopters, boat crane, crash crane, moving turrets and Sea Sparrow launchers, 4 launches, excellent flight deck decals and more. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: the instructions have minor bug damage that does not interfere with assembly. The actual decal transfers look 'excellent' - the bug did not touch them, but the bugs ate the coating on the backing paper. For some reason, they stopped when they got to the transfers, probably due to the varnish coating.

Comet Boeing B-47 Stratojet, 1/205, PL-22

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$89   

Rare kit from the 1950s. One-piece flip top box with early 39 cent price extension. Nicely molded in glossy silver and clear plastic with all recessed panel lines. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. It even includes the famous Comet catalog mail order envelope. Comet originally began model production in 1929 with a line of balsa flying models. In the mid-1950s Comet made a beautiful line of small and medium scale aircraft and missile models with colorful boxes. The early issues were in one-piece 'flip-top' boxes, and the later issues and releases were in standard two-piece 'hardboxes' with a lithograph slick glued to the top box. In 1963 Comet sold the plastic kit molds to Aurora, who reissued some but not all of the kits.

Lindberg F-80C Shooting Star - (P-80), 1/48, 500-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$49   

1950s issue molded in an incredible super high-gloss silver plastic with a clear canopy. The hardbox is in 'very good' condition with great color and gloss and four solid corners. Includes the correct early O-lin style two-piece, teardrop-based stand. The kit has not been started and is complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Paul Lindberg got his start in 1930s model aviation by designing, building and flying stick and tissue aircraft. His plans appeared in Popular Aviation magazine and he soon made a name for himself. When injection molding showed the way to increased kit sales in the late 1940s/early 1950s, he quickly teamed up with Mr. Olsen to create 'O-lin' models. Ray Gaedke was one the the early artists for O-lin, and he help pioneer dramatic and colorful box artwork. In the early 1950s Paul Lindberg was running the company and had the logo changed to his name. The first logo was circular, with 'Lindberg' in middle and 'Products' 'Incorporated' arched across the top and bottom. The second logo is the 'Yellow Square' that is on this kit. Ray Gadke continued his bold and colorful artwork for Lindberg and did this F-80C boxart as well.

Optional decals are included for the three aircraft (96th Bombardment Sq / 11th Bombardment Sq / 14th Bombardment Sq During the Sinking of the Battleship 'Ostfriesland').

Sanwa Messershmitt Me-110 C-4, 1/90, 169

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$55   

Very Rare. Early, colorful issue from the late 1950s. The kit is dated by the 'Sanwa Plastic' logo, which was normally used in the late 1950s up to 1960. NOTE: there is currently no assembly, but two parts were very neatly joined in the past. At one time, one top wing was very neatly glued to a lower wing by an adult to 'professional' quality. But the glue got old and it fell off. Inventoried 100% complete including all parts, decals and instructions. The box has damage and a few crunches as shown including two on the long lower side. Sanwa was one of Japan's earliest post-WWII kit producers, making model kits in the 1950s; some sources say 1955. Kits were marketed under Sanwa and Tokyo Plamo, with the general consensus being the the later logo came out around 1960 or later. Production ended in 1964, making all Sanwa kits rare and collectible. The entire line was extensive. It included very small scale tanks (some that were motorized), battleships in three scales with the larger ones motorized with dual prop drive, slot cars, civil sport boats and an electric outboard, a full line of hand gun models that actually shot plastic bullets, two fighter groups and bomber groups (probably Monogram), several different lines of scale aircraft, missile kits, scale (static) car models of early Japanese automobiles, at least 7 flying model aircraft that had electric and rubber motors, a 'Super Control Stand' P-51 that moved with a joystick and had an electric propeller and sound unit, two different lighthouses and a windmill, an air cushion boat, motor cycles, a diving submarine (electric) and a working (rubber band) George Washington Class SSBN and even a garden tractor with an electric motor. Just before going out of business, Sanwa issued some kits in conjunction with the 1964 Tokyo Olympic games - these kits even included a copy of an Olympic medal.
