Revell Convair B-36 Giant Bomber - (small box) Pre 'S' True Second Issue, 1/184, H205-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM-

$379   

Very rare, second issue from 1956 that is correct in every way. Unusual narrow height Pre 'S' box has the full artwork and the rare one-piece stand arm. The box is in investment-grade 'near mint-' condition. Color and gloss is like new, all four corners are perfect, no price tags or marks from tags, there is no tape - not even marks from the original factory sealing tape. There are no tears, tape or otherwise, creases, fading, stains or dents. The only flaws are slight edge wear and a 'light' spot just behind the foreground engine that you can see in the photo if you look hard. Has early 2nd issue stand with the two-piece stand arm. Revell very quickly replaced the faulty one-piece with this design. The correct instructions showing this early stand and the decal sheet includes the stand decal. Never started. Inventoried complete with all parts, 'excellent' condition decals and instructions. The factory clear small-part 'krinkle' bag is present but is split open, hence the 100% inventory. The first issue of this kit looks exactly like this on the outside, but inside it has the three-prong one piece stand and instructions that reflect that and an updated parts list. The third issue of this kit shared the same part number but is in a taller box, has greatly simplified artwork, the two-piece stand arm and instructions that reflect that change. For a long time it was thought that all 'full' box art versions had the one-piece stand arm; that is not true. Revell changed the design so quickly that some were issued with the change.

Hasegawa 1903 Wright Flyer 1 1/16 Scale Museum Model, 1/16

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$459   

Rare and large 1/16 scale museum quality kit. The four aircraft in this series (Wright Flyer, Fokker DR-1, Sopwith Camel and SE-5 Scout) are widely considered to be the finest model aircraft ever produced. This kit duplicates the world's first controllable powered aircraft using many of the original material in a near perfect representation of the inner structure of the aircraft. There are 303 parts made from die-cut plywood, Japanese cypress, cast soft metal, copper, rubber, brass, injection molded plastic and still other materials. Unlike the other three kits, this model can have the interior framework covered as the real aircraft or it can remain uncovered. Includes a Wright Brother pilot and display stand. The wingspan is 765mm (over 30 inches) when assembled. The engineering is world-class right down to the assembly plans. This kit has never been started. Nearly all parts are still in still in the factory sealed bags; the injection molded parts are the only ones not sealed and they have been inventoried complete. This kit was packed very carefully from the factory and all special internal boxes and inserts are included and in mint condition. Complete with instructions and roll-out plans. Please note, this item must be shipped insured.

Precise Martin Marietta Sprint ABM

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$1100   

Very rare promotional model of the 'Safeguard' ABM Missile Sprint. The Sprint and Spartan pair made up the missiles of this Anti-Ballistic Missile system with Sprint designed for short range interceptions. The system was made operational on October 1 1975 and Congress voted to shut it down less than 24 hours later on October 2 1975. Condition is excellent. Missile measures 14.75 inches high and is made of plastic. The missile body is mint with no broken parts - no scratches - no wear. The decals are 'very good.' There is some black missing on the roll pattern at the top (see photo) and the same amount missing on the back base roll pattern. The red 'US ARMY' is mint on the back but part of the 'R' is missing on the front as shown. The base is 'excellent' and has a metal plate that reads 'US Army Sprint Antimissile Missile - Martin Marietta.' There are no touch ups or repairs and no cracks. Please note that shipping insurance is required.

Maircraft Buzzard Bombshell - 69 inch Wingspan Class C Gas Free Flight or R/C Conversion

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$125   

Very rare early issue. The fantastic Buzzard Bombshell was a record setting aircraft in the very late 1930s/early 1940s. The plane won the AMA National Class C Open in 1940 with a flight of 49 min and 50 seconds. Kit contains many prefabricated parts to speed assembly as well as a clear canopy, formed gear struts, full scale plans and more. This kit is from the early 1940s or perhaps as late as 1947/48 when Maircraft went out of business. This model came from the estate of a very active and particular early aircraft kit collector. It is like factory-new inside and has not been started. Complete with all parts, plans and decals (if originally included).

Monogram Boeing B-52 Stratofortress with Jet Sound, 1/72, PA215

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$179   

First issue dated 1968 of this legendary kit that features realistic 'Jet Sound.' Well detailed with 207 parts. Features crew of three and cockpit, elevating and traversing rear turret, opening and closing bomb bay doors, operating wing flaps, operating spoilers, optional position entry hatch and landing gear, and optional parts to display one nacelle open to show the jet engine. When you open the box, the white printed cardboard display presentation is still present, in 'new' condition and still contains a mint tube of 'Monoglue' plastic cement. The instructions, B-52 Book and decals are present and in 'excellent' condition as well, but the decals have curled ends. The kit has never been started. The motor and hardware are still in the factory sealed bag. The plastic parts, which were never factory sealed, have been inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The box displays much better than the 'good++' grade but I have graded it as such because there is a closed tear on one side panel and some clear tape formerly used to hold the box shut. You can safely remove the clear tape by soaking it in lighter fluid; this will render the tape adhesive useless, and then the tape will come off easily.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$385   

Very, very rare and a true investment piece. Shizukyo started in the 1960s but was out of business before the end of the decade. This kit is likely from the early 60s.
