If any of the paperwork is important to you, let me know before you purchase and I will check for you. This is what Franklin Mint says about each of these models: "Each of our die-cast models are hand-assembled and hand painted to ensure quality and authentic detail.

Each is a masterpiece of the model maker's art, reflecting our passion for perfection, our total commitment to superb craftsmanship, and our abiding respect for quality and authenticity."

Aurora SNJ Trainer, 1/48, 80-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$34   

Very likely the 3rd issue of this kit because the boxtop oval logo does not have the 'Famous Fighters' in the border, making this the 1963+ issue.

It has been inventoried and NOTE: missing two part, the prop shaft and machine gun barrel (both very easily made). Otherwise complete with all other parts and includes decals and instructions.

Revell 1910 Pierce Arrow Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H48-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

$48   

In rare, investment grade condition. This is old hobby shop stock that has never been offered for retail sale until now. 1953 first year issue with the box is in amazing 'near mint+' condition and inside, the kit has never been started. They are still factory sealed in the 'krinkle' bag. Complete with instructions. Molded in bright red plastic. Before the 1950s 'model building' never made the top 10 list of boy's activities. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream. Shortly after the turn of the century, many dedicated modelers built flying or static airplanes, ship, train, automotive or other subjects. Basic kits existed, but the majority of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s. The phenomenon of the Revell/Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' car kits was a significant force in proving that model building as a hobby could have mass appeal, provided that the kits were easy enough to build and finish. These 1/32 scale vehicles could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real car. The Highway Pioneers series lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys.

Pyro IJN Musashi Battleship - Table Top Navy, 1/1200, C392-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$25   

Small scale ship kit from the Table Top Navy series. Very nicely done kits for their time. Can be built full hull or waterline. Features propeller and shaft detail, separately molded turrets, stacks, many superstructure parts and more. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and instructions. Many of the Pyro kits came from Eagle (then Eaglewall) molds in England. Eaglewall went out of business around 1962 and Pyro acquired at least some of the molds. Pyro reissued some of these kits in the mid 1960s with AJ Rudisill artwork. Evidently the line was successful, as Pyro then cut some of their own molds and expanded the series significantly. The earlier issues have the full color artwork and a three digit part number. Later issues have a 'B' or 'C' in front of the three digit kit number; some have simplified box art that is a modification of the original Rudisill paintings by painting out most of the background. Pyro issued these kits into the late 1960 when Life-Like took over the molds. Some were reissued by Life-Like.
