Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good++
Late 1960s Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of the kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. This model is nicely detailed and the box states that it can be converted to a 'road racing' or slot car. Features detailed molded chassis and separate front and rear suspension parts, full interior and molded in a beautiful gloss red and clear plastic. This kit has no assembly but NOTE: it has very neat and minor painting. The interior carpet is painted black (to 'professional' quality), the stainless trim on the body top and inner door panels is painted silver (to 'professional' quality) and painting began (but was not finished) on the tires and whitewalls to 'excellent' quality. There is no other painting and zero assembly. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Still factory sealed. Rare late 1950s issue. This is the only issue with the classic Ray Gaedke box artwork. Has very fine raised panel detail and can be built wheels up or down. Includes full TWA decals. The box would grade better than 'sealed vg' but the side panels have creasing.

Still factory sealed but the seal has split. Rare civil 440 with unique markings. I believe this is from the original Lindberg molds but I cannot confirm it since the kit is still factory sealed. Please note that the box says "1/48" scale, but it is clearly no where near that size.

Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Sealed VG++
Still factory sealed but the seal has split. Very cleanly molded kit that builds very nicely. The model has excellent fit and recessed and raised panel lines. Can be assembled with or without landing gear. The Swift was a very early jet fighter to replace the Supermarine Attacker. A very capable aircraft, the Swift suffered numerous accidents early on. As a result, less than 200 were ever built and it did not see combat. It did hold a world speed record for a short time, only to have a Douglas Skyray take the record a few hours later. The problems were ironed out, but by then the Hawker Hunter was proving very capable and there was no need for the Swift and it's RAF service life was short. The most successful version was the PR variant.

Amazing condition, true dealer promotional model with the original box. One owner and obtained new from a Lexington, KY dealership in 1975 by a discriminating collector. It is still wrapped in the original tissue paper and is in factory-new condition. It was never used, displayed or played with and the tires reflect that. Color and gloss are like new, as is the chrome, clear and tires. Complete with all parts. Although I can't imagine how it could be better, I'll grade it 9.8 out of 10 as I hesitate to call anything perfect. The box is 'very good' and is stamped "75 VEGA MEDIUM RED" on the end flap. There are no MPC markings, but I have listed it as that manufacturer as a guess since they marketed this car as an assembly it in this scale.
