AMT AMT 1965 Mercury Park Lane 2 Door HT Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$65   

Rare friction motor promotional in excellent condition. This model was obtained in the mid 1960s by a discriminating adult collector in Lexington KY. The promo has never even been displayed or played with . The color and gloss are factory new. The rear bumper chrome is 'very good++' while the front bumper is 'very good' with wear on the ends. There is no body warp and the clear is in 'excellent++' condition. I would grade this one 8 out of 10 with 10 being flawless. The deduction is for very light box roof scuffs and it simply needs cleaned. Does not come with a box.

Aurora German Sea Raider Atlantis, 1/456, 710-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc +++

$900   

First issue. The hardbox is dated 1959 and has the "Famous Fighters" in the oval 'Northern Lights' logo. This is the only kit made of the infamous German WWII converted merchant raider which was the subject of several books and a major movie called 'Under Ten Flags.' The long WWII voyage was legendary, and the ship is well represented in this full-hull model. Covers can be removed to reveal hidden guns, torpedo tubes and the Ar-196 floatplane. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. From modeler Stephen Payne: Recommend that the builder or collector of this kit add the following books to their collection-The German Raider Atlantis by Captain Bernhard Rogge & Wolfgang Frank & Sea Raider Atlantis, Story of a German Surface Raider by Ulrich Mohr & A.V. Sellwood. The first book is by the ATLANTIS commander, Kapitan zur See Bernhard Rogge. He oversaw the transformation and outfitting in Bremen and captained the ship during her 602 day operational voyager which sank or captured 22 ships totaling 144,384 t (142,104 long tons). Rogge also was one of the few German officers of flag rank who was not arrested by the Allies after the war due to the way he had exercised his command of Atlantis. Captain J. Armstrong White, captain of the British CITY OF BAGHDAD, which Atlantis sank in July 1941, stated, "His treatment of prisoners left respect, instead of hatred."The second book is by the ATLANTIS First Officer, Ulrich Moher. Both books read much the same as the events related are the same, but it is interesting to see these events from the two perspectives. Captain White (see above) wrote the foreword to Atlantis, the Story of a German Surface Raider, written by U. Mohr & A. V. Sellwood.The German auxiliary cruiser Atlantis (HSK 2), known to the Kriegsmarine as Schiff 16 (SHIP 16) and to the Royal Navy as Raider-C, was a converted merchant vessel to German Hilfskreuzer (auxiliary cruiser) used for commerce raiding. Commerce raiders did not seek to engage warships, but rather attack enemy merchant shipping; the measures of success are tonnage destroyed (or captured) and time spent "at large" holding up enemy resources. Atlantis had the longest raiding career of any German commerce raider in either world war.

Airways Vac Form Vickers VC-10 C1 Plus K2 Tanker Conversion Parts and Plans, 1/72

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$165   

Large 1/72 scale VC10 C1 is the only big non-tanker version of this famous and dependable aircraft. Nicely molded with fine recessed panel lines and better detail than many injection molded models. Includes injection molded struts, molded clear front cockpit windows as well as extensive instructions and plans and a very large decal sheet. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The C1 was the first VC10 version used by the RAF. The following history is from Wikipedia: The first RAF aircraft, designated VC10 C Mk. 1, often abbreviated to VC10 C1, was delivered for testing on 26 November 1965; deliveries to No. 10 Squadron began in December 1966 and ended in August 1968. The VC10s were named after Victoria Cross (VC) medal holders, and were displayed above the forward passenger door. During the 1960s, the VC10s of No. 10 Squadron operated two regular routes, one to the Far East to Singapore and Hong Kong, and the other to New York. By 1970, roughly 10,000 passengers and 730,000 lb of freight were being carried monthly by the VC10 fleet. In addition to the strategic transport role, the VC10 routinely served in the aeromedical evacuation and VIP roles. In the VIP role, the aircraft was commonly used by members of the British Royal family, such as during Elizabeth II's bicentennial tour of America and by several British Prime Ministers. Margaret Thatcher reportedly insisted on flying by VC10. The aircraft proved capable of being flown non-stop by two flight crews, enabling several round-the-world flights. One such VC10 circumnavigated the globe in less than 48 hours.
