Banthrico 1951 Kaiser Frazer Henry J Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit


Rare, and even rarer in this condition. Original dealer promotional model in 'very good' condition. The body is very straight - not perfect, but close. The original friction drive is missing. The plastic color is original and has good gloss but also has general wear and some age foxing as shown. The clear is 'excellent' but can use cleaning. The tires are almost like new - if it was played with, it was not for long. No parts are missing and it is original except that some of the fine trim (door handles, trim, etc) has been correctly and very neatly adult painted. The quality is good enough to pass for factory paint. NOTE: The model is unmarked, so the true manufacture is not known. However, almost all of these (if not all) were made by Banthrico.

Revell Trabant 601S Trabbi, 1/24, 7334

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


1990 issue of this infamous automobile. Nicely done with 60 parts, full interior, separately molded suspension, rotating wheels, luggage rack, excellent decals and more. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: the thin top frame has closed splits (like most of these kits) but all parts are still attached. This is most easily repaired by installing the roof, then gluing the frame parts to the underside of the roof. This serves to automatically align everything and reinforce it. From Wikipedia: The Trabant is an automobile which was produced from 1957 to 1990 by former East German car manufacturer VEB Sachsenring Automobilwerke Zwickau. It is often seen as symbolic of the former East Germany and the collapse of the Eastern Bloc in general. The Trabant had a duroplast body mounted on a one-piece steel chassis (a so-called unibody), front-wheel drive, a transverse engine, and independent suspension- unusual features in 1957 but it remained much the same until 1989 when it acquired a (licensed) Volkswagen engine; its discontinuation followed in 1991. The 1980s model had no tachometer, no indicator for either the headlights or turn signals, no fuel gauge, no rear seat belts, and no external fuel door, and drivers had to pour a mix of gasoline and oil directly under the bonnet/hood (yes, that is right, it's a car with a two cycle engine). Called "a spark plug with a roof," 3,096,999 Trabants in a number of models were produced over nearly three decades with few significant changes in their basic design. It took up to 10 years to acquire your new Trabant; if you did not want to wait, a second-hand one cost your double what a brand new one cost. The Trabant's build quality was poor, reliability was terrible, closer inspection revealed "patchy assembly quality", with an atrocious maintenance record. According to automotive journalist Doug DeMuro, the Trabant was loud, slow, poorly designed, and badly built.
