A very nice model featuring detailed chassis, full engine and engine compartment, opening hood, optional parts for custom street machine, full interior and more. Molded in red, clear, red-tinted clear, chrome plate and with rubber tires. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Fujimi D4Y3 Type 33 Suisei 'Judy' Carrier Dive Bomber - 601 Kokutai / 2nd Battle of the Philippine Sea, 1/72, 6

Aurora P-38 Lightning Brooklyn - Famous Fighters of All Nations, 1/48, 99-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$219   

First issue Brooklyn kit from the early 1950. Molded in the correct light blue with little surface detail and no mass balances, pitot tube or landing gear struts, wheels and doors. Includes the correct rectangular clear stand for this issue. Decals and instructions are in excellent condition. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The Aurora issues of the 1/48 scale P-38 are interesting to say the least. The first issue is the Brooklyn kit with the P-38/B-24 box artwork. Inside, the plastic is light blue with minimal surface detail and a clear canopy and rectangular stand that says 'Aurora Plastic Corp. Brooklyn, 4, N.Y.'. There are no landing gear, gear doors or mass balances. The second issue has identical box art, plastic color, decals and rectangular stand, but the box and instructions says 'West Hempstead' instead of Brooklyn. The clear stand mold has had 'Brooklyn' milled out, and there is no location on the stand. The third issue has the same artwork, but the full color 'Aurora Line' logo is used - but the big changes were on the inside. Aurora modified the molds, adding a pitot tube, elevator mass balances and landing gear struts, wheels and doors. The decals and stand remain the same, but the new instructions reflect the changes to the molds. This time the kit is molded in an attractive metallic blue. The fourth issue dropped the Jim Cox artwork in favor of a new P-38 flying from right to left across a threatening sky. The plastic still metallic light blue and the decals and stand remain unchanged. The new details were retained. The fifth issue was 1959. The oval 'Famous Fighters' logo was used with Jo Kotula artwork of two P-38s. The detail level of the kit remained the same, but it was molded in olive drab and clear. The newer 'Triangle' base was added at this time. Further issues kept this box artwork, but the oval logo changed as well as the price extensions.

Heller Sinagot with Sails - And Paint and Glue, 1/60, 60605

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$36

ITC F-108 Rapier with Booster and Launching Platform, 1/89, 3663-149

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++++

$2250   

Very rare kit from 1960 in exceptional condition. The box is superb with factory gloss and color, four solid corners, no price tags, factory tape marks only with no tape tears or any litho tears. It is free of creases and 'dishing.' The only wear is a very small amount of corner and edge wear and light scuffs. The box bottom tray is exceptional as well. Very interesting kit with raised and recessed panel line detail. The kit comes with the proposed operating zero-length launching system and fall-away rocket booster. The booster is detachable from the F-108 (if you wish). The aircraft has moving canards and the launcher elevates to launching position then back to storage position. Molded in the correct ivory plastic with metal parts for the elevation mechanism. The kit includes the correct decals and instructions as well. The decals, spring and two metal shafts are still packed in the ITC factory bag. The instructions are excellent with typical yellowing, factory folds only and no tears or edge wear. Inside, the kit is in factory-new condition. It has not been started. It has been inventoried complete with every plastic part, metal part, decals and instructions and even the Ideal Quality 'Inspection Slip.' The F-108 was a proposed interceptor and escort for the B-70 tri-sonic bomber and ITC was quick to capitalize on this new design. The kit was produced quickly and the rest is history. When the F-108 hit the shelves, it did not look like the design. Photos had been released by the US Air Force of the mock-up that were not available when ITC made the molds. This and the cancellation of the F-108 program lead to a very short release life for the Rapier and ITC quickly pulled it from the shelves. NOTE: shipping insurance is required.

Cox Thimble-Drone L-4 Grasshopper Control Line Gas Aircraft, 7200-898

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$219   

Rare in this condition. Never flown, still in the original box. This is a one-owner gas model purchased new by a discriminating collector. The box is complete but has a closed tear and tape on it as shown, only at the lower left. Beyond that it is good and the original clear cello is intact. Inside, it is factory new. The airplane has never been flown or even displayed; it is mint. it is still held in the original factory cardboard retainers which are in very good condition. The control line handle is present, mounted to the side as the factory did. The instructions are present and not even yellowed; but they do have minor bug damage.

Hudson Miniatures 1911 Mercer Raceabout Old Timers, 1/16

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$68   

Very well detailed large 1/16 kit from 1949. Features plastic wheels, grill, steering wheel, lights and other accessories and wooden and metal main parts. Although all of Hudson's 1/16 kits have excellent detail, this one has even more detail than usual thanks to Hudson's engineers having access to the actual car owned by Mr. J. Fetterolf of Buckingham, PA. This kit has never been started. Inventoried complete with all parts, plans and instructions. Please note, there are adult notes written on the plans to improve the accuracy of the model. The owner of these kits was a keen researcher and actually won a Hudson Miniature Old Timers Model Building Competition. Hudson Miniatures created a very popular line of automobile kits in a constant 1/16 scale shortly after WWII. The kits sold very well...so well that you could argue that Gowland & Gowland borrowed Hudson's subject matter for their ground-breaking 'Highway Pioneers.' The Hudson Miniatures 'Old Timers' even spawned a line of imitators, with Fador's 'Smallster' being one of the better in quality. Sales did drop on the appearance and popularity of the much smaller (and less accurate) Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' in 1951. When the all-injection molded Gowland kits proved not to be a passing fad, Hudson quickly planned and released his own all-plastic, small-scale competition called 'Lil' Old Timers Quickie Kits.' The kits were of excellent quality, but it was too little too late. Additionally, sales of the excellent wooden kits faltered further in the next few years with the introduction of accurate, 1/24 and 1/32 all-plastic cars in the mid 1950s. This forced Hudson to discontinue the wood kits and the plastic line was sold to Revell and subsequently re-released. Today, these excellent, big 1/16 kits are often the only model available of these early automobiles. The 1911 Mercer Raceabout is one of the rarest American cars. The Mercer was built in Trenton, NJ and powered by a 30 hp T head 4 cylinder engine. Displacement was 300.7 cubic inches and the car had a wet clutch four speed transmission. The car weighed 2,500 lbs and cost $2600 and could do 112 mph. The Mercer was perhaps the most famous sports car of the time. It was rugged, handled very well and had excellent performance.

Ideal Aeroplane & Supply SS America Ocean Liner / Troop Ship USS West Point / S.S. Australis - Wooden Ship Kit, 1/330, 605

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$325   

Very rare and an excellent example. Large wooden and metal kit builds to just over 26 inches long. This model is of the SS America Ocean Liner, which was designed by the famous naval architect William Francis Gibbs. She was laid down in 1938 and entered service on August 22 1940 as the flagship of the United States Lines. World War II interrupted her passenger service. The ship was active through the war. She narrowly escaped being sunk off Singapore during the Japanese invasion. After the war she resumed her North Atlantic route. The liner was the pride of the US Merchant fleet before the USS United States was commissioned. When the 'Big U' entered service, the two liners were stable mates and often appeared in the same travel agency posters and prints. By 1964 aircraft had taken a large section of the ocean liner travelers away, and the America was sold to Chandris Group and was renamed the Australis. She sailed for 14 years in a very successful career and was the last liner to sail from Southampton to Australia/New Zealand. She was laid up in 1977. She changed owners several times, but was never again successful. While being towed to Thailand, the lines broke and she ran aground in the Canary Islands, where the wreck broke up after time - but not before the locals rescued many items from the ship. The model box is very good and the kit inside is in as-new condition. Features pre-carved hull, metal fittings, very large full size plans, print wood and heavy cardstock, clear material for windows, color flag sheet, building instructions with perspective views and rigging material and diagrams. Never started. I believe that I was the first one to remove the parts from the box when I performed the inventory. All of the fittings are either still in factory sealed bags or inventoried complete. The parts that were never sealed are 100% complete including plans. You can convert it to the USS West Point if you have photos of the ship (which are on the internet) - the main difference is the addition of lifeboats and different paint. Photos of the S.S. Australis will provide the needed data to convert her to that ship, but this conversion will require more work than the West Point. Please NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured. The travel agency poster does NOT come with the kit and is used for illustrative purposes only.

Robbe Norderney Survey Ship With 1036 Fittings Set - 49 Inches Long For R/C Or Static Display, 1/25, 1035

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$569   

Very rare, and even rarer with the important fittings kit. This was Robbe's flagship model and was around $800 with the optional ship's fittings kit which is included. This full-scale model is designed for radio control operation with two props and rudders and provides great maneuverability even in rough water. The beautiful and huge hull is one piece molded ABS plastic and all other parts are pre-fabricated (die-cut) of wood and plastic. Includes hull, mast, funnel and small parts, die-cut decks, superstructure and crane parts, die-cut main frames and deck beams, clear glazing, double rudder system, R/C fitting set with tillers and pushrods, 35mm diameter screws, rubber rubbing strip, rails, anchor winch parts, optional fittings set and more. This example is never touched. It has not been started and all the parts are still exactly as the factory shipped them. The ones that were sealed are still sealed and the few that were not have been inventoried complete. With all plans/instructions. Unless you specify otherwise, this kit will be shipped in the huge and sturdy original box with paper covering the identification label and photo. If you choose to have it boxed again, extra shipping will apply. Please note, this may not ship to other countries who have size limited on postage because the box is 52.3 x 18.2 x 14.2 inches. Must be shipped insured.

Revell Boeing 747 Aerolineas Argentias Jumbo Jet - Lodela, 1/144, RH4513

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$95   

Very rare Lodela issue. The kit appears to be from the early to mid 1980s as the side panel mentions that in 1987 Aerolineas Argentinas celebrates 20 years of service between Argentina and Mexico (I base that on a 1949 start date for Aerolineas Argentinas). Features extensive decals with all side stripes, fin flash, name boards and more, fine raised and many recessed panel lines, detailed landing gear that can be built retracted or extended, detail main gear bay, good engine inlet and exhaust detail and a large display stand. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.
