The parts are still in the factory sealed bags. Includes decals and instructions. LS was one of the earliest Japanese manufacturers to produce high quality kits. Some of the LS molds are still in use by Hasegawa as testament to the their detail and accuracy.

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Many were built, but A83 through 85 could not be completed at the end of WWI so they were scrapped at Kiel. Many of the A class ended up Polish and Belgian Navies after the war. The balance of the finished ships were scrapped in Britain.

Revell Spanish Galleon, 1/65, H400

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$89   

NOTE: builder only, please read carefully. 1974 issue. Highly detailed and large model, measuring 28.5 inches long and 25 inches high. Features full hull, detailed cannon and deck fittings, vac sails, large colorful decal sheet with designs on them as per the box artwork, large color flag sheet, pre-formed ratlines and more. Full rigging instructions and material are included. Two of the vac sails have closed splits from the plastic being brittle. The kit has no assembly and is inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals, flag sheet, instructions, rigging diagram and rigging material. NOTE: this kit has some very neatly done painting. The hull halves, (2) rear superstructure, fantail and cannons are painted. As you can see from the sample photo, the quality of paint is 'excellent+' to 'professional' with the only problem being that another coat is required in some places (below the waterline on the hull, for example). Also, 2.2 inches of the port bow tip is broken and missing. Fortunately, this is a part that can be made by first assembling the hull halves, then gluing sheet styrene to the existing starboard tip. Then shape the styrene to match the starboard side.

Renwal Frank Hawks JN-4 Heddon Jenny Barnstormer, 1/48, 284-169

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$85   

Still factory sealed but the seal has split. After WWI there was a surplus of JN-4 aircraft and many found their way into barnstorming across the country. Frank Hawks was one such pilot. Heddon, an enterprising fishing tackle manufacture, hired Frank to pilot this brilliantly painted Jenny in air shows as an advertising plan. This is one of Renewal's famous Aeroskin kits. The model has an injection molded inner structure of ribs and stringers like a real aircraft, then the modeler covers it with provided authentic pre-colored Aeroskin fabric. There is no painting needed as elaborate finishes are printed directly on the Aeroskin covering. This results a very realistic and colorful model.

Pyro Monitor United States Ironclad, C258-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$59   

Rare early issue of the Monitor alone from the late 50s with artwork by AJ Rudisill. Usually this kit is only seen in the release that contains it and the Merrimac together. The model is 10 inches long when built, is full hull with prop and rudder detail, has a rotating turret and includes a display stand. Never started. Either inventoried 100% complete with all parts present or still factory bag sealed inside. With instructions. Although dated, the Pyro Monitor and Merrimac kits are generally considered superior to the Lindberg models of the same ships. The Monitor was one of two American Civil war ships that spelled the end of the wooden ship age. In March of 1862, the Merrimac put to sea to raise the Union Blockade off the James River. There she sank the Cumberland and Congress. The Monitor, the Union's only ironclad and the first turret ship, was rushed to the scene. The epic battle between the two iron-clad ships ended in a draw, with the Merrimac suffering a little more damage than the Monitor. The Merrimac was blown up to avoid capture; the Monitor sank in a gale in 1862.

Maircraft Boeing F4B-4 - Solid Wood Model Airplane - (F4B4), 1/48, S16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$24   

Maircraft was originally founded in the early or mid 1930s by Gordon Christoph and went by the name Aircraft Model Company. The company produced a typical line of solid 'profile cut' kits that required the usual high talent levels for carving and finishing. A former Comet Model Airplane & Supply Co. salesman, Jack Mair, bought the company in the early 1940s and renamed it Maircraft. This company was one of the handful of solid kit producers who issued models in a consistent 1/48 scale during the 1930s and 1940s (others included Hawk and Dyna-Model). This lead to one of the most desirable and rare model kits ever produced in the USA - the wood/plastic 1/48 United DC-3 model issued immediately after World War 2. Other than the P-61 and a few other Maircraft offerings, most were simple kits that sold for the low price of about 35 cents and gave the owners many hours of pleasurable work. This kit features a full size plan with instructions steps, fuselage that is about 80% cut, profile cut parts, printwood and a small bag of details. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

La Belle Victor Gold Mining Co. Gondola HOn3 Narrow Gauge - Craftsman Model, 1/87, HOn3-34

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$30   

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 equipment. The kit features die cut hardwood parts (no balsa) such as pre-cut and scribed sides all cut to the correct size, car ends done in the same fashion, excellent underside and cast metal details, building instructions and plans and decals/transfers. I have seen these models built and they look identical to the real prototypes. The kit has not been started and is complete with two packets of small parts still factory sealed, and all other parts inventoried complete with transfers and instructions.

Cleveland 1938 Turner-Laird 'Pesco Special' Racer - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-72

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$95   

This is a Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. The kit came from a long time collector of 1930s and 1940s models and is in exceptional condition. All Cleveland kits were very complete and this one is no exception. Features very high quality balsa printwood and strip wood, covering material, pre-carved nose, partially machined wheel pants, finished wheels, ready to use prop blades, markings to convert the aircraft to teh 1939 race winner, highest quality plans, and more. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. The Cleveland Model and Supply Company played a pivotal role in the development of true scale models. In 1909 Bleriot's English Channel flight caused a surge in aviation and model aircraft around the globe. Several companies were ideally positioned to take advantage of the aviation craze. In the USA, Wading River Manufacturing Co. (1909), White Aeroplane (1911), Ideal Model Aeroplane (1911), Broadfield Model Aeroplanes (1919) were among these pioneers, offering everything from plans and parts to complete kits and ARF models. Lindbergh's 1927 crossing of the Atlantic Ocean caused an even bigger world-wide phenomenon called 'The Aviation Craze' that extended up to the start of World War II. Many companies such as Megow, Guillow's and others started right around the time of Lindbergh's flight. Some of these models flew and flew well, but they all had one thing in common - were generally not accurate scale representations. In 1929, a youngster named Ed Packard had a very advanced dream to produce incredibly accurate, true scale models that flew perfectly. This radical idea established the world's longest operating single-owner model airplane supply business, called Cleveland Model and Supply Company. To this day, Cleveland models are treasured as the most accurate flying scale models produced. The fact that Mr. Packard started and successfully grew this business during The Great Depression is a testament to his ideals and business skill. I highly suggest the excellent book called 'Aviations great Recruiter, Cleveland's Ed Packard' by H.L. (Herm) Schreiner. It is an excellent history of the man, his company and the times of the Golden Age of Model Aviation.
