Lindberg Nautilus Atomic Submarine, 1/300, 70884

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$18   

Still factory sealed. Crafthouse reissue, from original molds. The model is an interesting work of fact and fiction - it includes a deck gun and what looks like a Regulus II missile for the deck! The scale is about 1/300 and it measures about 12 inches long when assembled. This kit has a fascinating history. In the 1930s, Paul Lindberg was designing, building and flying stick and tissue aircraft like so many other men and boys of the time. His plans appear in Popular Aviation magazine and he made a good name for himself. When injection molding showed the way to increased kits sales in the late 1940s/early 1950s, he quickly teamed up with Mr. Olsen to create 'O-lin' models. Ray Gaedke was one the early artists for O-lin. In the early 1950s Paul Lindberg had control and had his name as the logo. The first logo is the one on this kit - 'Lindberg' in script with 'Products' arched across the top and 'Incorporated' arched across the bottom to create a broken circle around the script. Ray Gaedke continued his bold and colorful artwork for Lindbergs first Nautilus issue. The Nautilus appears to be the first sea vessel that Lindberg cut their own molds for - the Chris Craft Express Cruiser, PT Boat, LST and Fleet Submarine (Ex-Varney) were done by O-lin.

Aurora North American F-100 Super Sabre, 1/103, 490-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$56   

Dated 1961 with the great Jim Cox artwork that makes early Aurora kits so collectible. This issue has a slightly larger box than earlier ones. It is a nicely done kit for that time, molded in gloss silver and clear with full landing gear and clear 'Triangle World Map' stand. Never started. Inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. Please note, this is not a reissue of the Comet model. Aurora cut these molds years before acquiring Comet's F-100.

Hobby-Time Sealed Factory Case of 12 Bell XV-3 US Army Convertiplane, 1/43, 901-98c

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good

$545   

This is a factory-sealed case of 12 Hobby-XV-3 model kits from the 1950s. Hobby-Time shipped them to the address on the box, and I purchased them from the man at that address. The case has never been opened and is still securely sealed top and bottom with the factory tape. The box is in 'excellent' condition. The actual model kits (12 inside the case!) are the one and only issue of this amazing aircraft. This is a very nice kit for that time with fine raised panel lines, interior detail and molded in gloss silver and clear.

Micro West Ford SIAM (Self Initiated Anti-Aircraft Missile) or SUBADS (Submarine Air-Defense System) Factory Model, 1/10

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good

$475   

Very rare factory display model of the 1970s DARPA SIAM project, which was short for Self-Initiated Anti-Aircraft Missile. The idea was to develop a completely autonomous air-defense missile. One of the most obvious purposes was for use onboard submarines. The submarine can hear the aircraft or helicopter as it approached since the sound propagates through the water. The submarine could then launch a SIAM buoy to the surface, where the missile would automatically detect and attack any incoming aircraft. It was also theorized that SIAM could be launched vertically from the submarine itself. SIAM was tested in the early 1980s and was generally successful. DARPA handed SIAM over to the Navy, where it was deactivated due to funding. This factory model is complete with the original stand. The wooden base has a metal disk showing a submarine launching a SIAM, which is shown executing the 'dual homing' functions. The missile is just over 7 inches long. The base and metal badge are 'near mint' condition. The missile is excellent, with all original paint and decals. There is some minor wear on some of the port-side gold decals.

William H Low Co 1900s American La France Combination Hose Wagon - Wilo Line Fire Trucks, 1/24, CH110

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$95   

Very rare. Likely from the 1940s. William H Low Co., of Braintree Mass., issued the 'Wilo Line' which included a superb series of antique commercial firefighting equipment. The scale is given as 1/2" and the finished wagon is approximately 7.5 inches long (and over 14 inches long with the front hitch bar). The kits were very advanced for the time and shared many of the pre-fabrication methods of Hudson Miniatures. Wilo Line kits features "all parts in this kit cut to size and shape." Includes beautiful plastic injection molded spoke wheels, precut and machined large and small wooden parts, finished tanks, hose material, metal stock, a sealed bag of smaller parts including a great many more fully carved wood parts, brass chain, metal parts and full size plans with numerous drawings and detailed text instructions. There is even a painting guide. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed small-parts bags with the non-sealed parts inventoried complete including instructions/plans. The kits in this line include Amoskeag Steamer, Hose Reel, Hose Wagon, Chemical Engine and many others. In most cases they are the only kits in existence of these historic vehicles. Bill Low did design at least one 'non-fire truck' kit in his Will-O-Line - a Conestoga Wagon, advertised as being 1/24 scale, kit #B14 for $2.85 listed as "This is another Museum Piece by Bill Low." After seeing these fire truck kits, I do not doubt that.

O-Lin Fleet Submarine (Gato Class, Ex-Varney)

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$289   

Very, very rare investment piece for the advanced collector. From the late 1940s. This is the first one I have had in 20 years of dealing with kits and among the finest condition I have seen. Molded in the correct, gloss olive-drab plastic with a two piece hull, fore and aft decks, sail and detail parts and full instructions and the correct stand marked 'FLEET SUBMARINE.' The kit has never been started and is inventoried 100% complete with all parts and 'Very Good++' condition instructions. The box is graded 'excellent' (not perfect!) and has very nice color and gloss, four solid, original corners, no price tags or tag tears, no tape except for the remains of clear tape on the two long sides where the box was factory sealed, no tape tears and no box tears, fades or missing litho. Wear includes general light shelf wear as shown and some corner and edge wear. NOTE: must be shipped insured. This kit has a fascinating history. These molds may well be the oldest production ship kit in US plastic modeling history. The kit started as the Varney Fleet Sub in the mid 1940s. It is widely believed that it was the very first USA all-plastic construction kit of a military vessel. Varney produced an all plastic aircraft kit at the same time, the PT-17. It is the #1 candidate for the first plastic airplane kit in the USA. Varney was a famous manufacture of model trains, first O then a leader in HO models. The two new additions did not sell very well - remember, the Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' had yet to be issued, so the boom in modeling had not occurred. Varney soon sold the molds for the Fleet Sub and the PT-17 to O-Lin (along with the molds for a fantastic multi-media kit with a wooden hull and plastic fittings, the Varney PT Boat ). O-Lin was a joint venture by Paul Lindberg and Mr. Olsen. O-Lin successfully issued the PT Boat (the PT Boat was given an injection molded hull and deck), PT-17 Stearman and Fleet Sub but modified the molds for the Sub. The original Varney kit had a solid, one-piece black hull and gray fittings. O-Lin engineers created a two-piece hull that provided a hollow hull and made from the same shot of plastic as the fittings. The 'Lin' in O-Lin, Paul Lindberg, was already well known for his publication of articles and plans for flying model aircraft in some of the leading aviation publications in the 1940/50s.
