Renwal M65 280mm Atomic Cannon with M249 and M250 50 Ton Heavy Gun Lifting Truck/Transporters, 1/32, 553

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$275   

Hard-to-find Renwal late 1950s/early '60s issue of this very desirable kit- not the common Revell reissue. The box top says 'Fully Operating Model Does Everything But Fire' and it is true. It consists of over 300 parts and has many action features typical of Renwal models. The wheels roll, tractors can be hooked to the cannon which can be stowed in the 'travel' position. The gun can move into the 'fire' position off the tractors and can be trained realistically. Molded in the correct olive drab plastic. The kit has never been started. The parts are as they came from the factory: the majority of them are still in the Renwal staple factory sealed bags. The trees that Renwal never sealed have been inventoried complete. With decals and instructions. The factory blue and pink "A" and "B" signs are present in the sealed bags. Decals are in 'very good+' condition and flat. The instructions are 'excellent' with yellowing and very minor bug damage as the only real flaw. The box displays grades 'Very Good' but displays slightly better. But I graded it as such because there was one closed-split corner and general light wear and slight bug damage on the lower edges and corners. The corner has been fixed correctly with glue only (no tape). The lower box tray is very nice also and has four solid corners but one long closed split on a seam.

Dragon UH-1D Huey, 1/35, 3538

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$94   

Superbly molded with over 160 parts and highly detailed inside and out. Features numerous prepainted photoetched parts and decals for 6 different helicopters. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Revell F-105D Thunderchief (ex Monogram) - Capt Dave Roeder 'The Impossible Dream' and 'Foley's Folly/Ohio Express' From 469th TFS 388 TRW Korat Thailand, 1/48, 85-5840

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

$39   

Still factory sealed. An excellent example of mold-swapping in 1999 when Revell purchased Monogram. This is actually the excellent Monogram kit from the 1970/80s. Typical high Monogram quality with full cockpit and wheel well detail. External stores included and optional position speed brakes. Has decals Capt. Pete Foley's aircraft "Foley's Folly" and CApt. Dave Roeder's "The Impossible Dream", both from the 469th TFS of the 388 TFW.

Aurora Messerschmitt Me-109 (Bf-109) - Blue Short Box Ends- Famous Fighters of All Nations, 1/48, 55A-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM-

$325   

I believe this is the 4th edition of this kit, and the first issue with this Jim Cox boxart. Dates from mid 1955 with small 'Aurora Line' rectangular logo and 'Famous Fighters of All Nations'. It is interesting that this issue did not carry the standard Aurora 'Northern Lights' logo for 1956 - perhaps it was designed at the end of 1955 and simply left that way. Correctly molded in metallic burgundy and clear with the correct rectangular clear stand. For this issue the factory changed the swastikas on the tail to iron crosses and decals as well. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora Hiller Hornet Ram-Jet Helicopter, 1/48, 501-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$650   

Very rare. Although dated 1956, this is the artwork copyright date only. This issue sports the oval logo with the sunburst but no "Famous Fighters" so this hardbox probably dates roughly 1960 and the last issue for this model. This is from the old Helicopters for Industry molds that Aurora acquired in the mid 1950s. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Heller Potez 63-11 (63.11), 1/72, L396

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

$32   

Still factory sealed. Nicely molded older kit with good cockpit detail and very fine raised panel lines. The 63.11 was a further development of the successful Potez 631 and was used in the scouting and observation role. Four squadrons were equipped with this type. They saw heavy action and 63.11 losses were the greatest of all Armee de l'Air combat aircraft during the Invasion of France.

Williams Brothers Seversky P-35 or SEV-S2 (S-2) - 27th Pursuit Sq 1st Pursuit Group Commander's or Lindberg's Aircraft, 1/32, 32-135

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

$22   

Very nicely molded and detailed large 1/32 scale kit. Contains optional parts and decals for civil racer or military version. Features highly detailed engine and cockpit, three piece canopy, full size drawings and rigging diagrams and rubber or plastic tires. The military ship, PA69 was flown by Squadron Commanding Officer Willis Taylor of the 1st Pursuit Squadron and also by Charles Lindberg. When Lindberg flew this ship, his name was not put on it, likely to protect his privacy. The racer decals feature colorful numbers and striping for NX70-Y. The model as never been started. The parts are either still in the factory sealed bag or have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Aurora Martin B-26 Marauder, 1/46, 371-259

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$179   

Very rare first issue from the early 1950s. When Aurora moved to the West Hempstead plant, they planned a series of very large scale bombers. All kits released up to this time had been small. Aurora's instincts were correct, and the B-26, B-25 and B-29 were a big sales success. This box art was done by Jim Cox and was only used for about one year, making it very rare. Molded in the correct gloss silver and clear, with correct Tatem Company decals with no stand base decal and correct instructions. Decals and instructions are in excellent condition. The kit has never been started. NOTE: missing rectangular stand and stand arm. Otherwise inventoried complete with all aircraft parts, decals and instructions.

Cleveland Boeing F4B-3 - Flying Scale Aircraft (F4B), 1/16, SF-29

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$75   

This is a legendary Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. This is an early cardboard box issue with silver printing. All Cleveland kits were exceptionally complete for the time, and this is no exception. Features very high quality balsa printwood, strip wood, fully formed wood main and tail wheels, carved thrust bearing, prop blades, blocks, wires and other wood as required, covering material, highest quality plans and three color sheets of insignia. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. NOTE: there is bug damage to the insignia sheets. The Cleveland Model and Supply Company played a pivotal role in the development of true scale models. In 1909 Bleriot's English Channel flight caused a surge in aviation and model aircraft around the globe. Several companies were ideally positioned to take advantage of the aviation craze. In the USA, Wading River Manufacturing Co. (1909), White Aeroplane (1911), Ideal Model Aeroplane (1911), Broadfield Model Aeroplanes (1919) were among these pioneers, offering everything from plans and parts to complete kits and ARF models. Lindbergh's 1927 crossing of the Atlantic Ocean caused an even bigger world-wide phenomenon called "The Aviation Craze" that extended up to the start of World War II. Many companies such as Megow, Guillow's and others started right around the time of Lindbergh's flight. Some of these models flew and flew well, but they all had one thing in common - were generally not accurate scale representations. In 1929, a youngster named Ed Packard had a very advanced dream- to produce incredibly accurate, true scale models that flew perfectly. This radical idea established the world's longest running single-owner (77 years) model airplane business- Cleveland Model and Supply Company. To this day, Cleveland models are treasured as the most accurate flying scale models produced. The fact that Mr. Packard started and successfully grew this business during The Great Depression is a testament to his ideals and business skill. I highly suggest the excellent book called 'Aviation's great Recruiter- Cleveland's Ed Packard' by H.L. (Herm) Schreiner. It is an excellent history of the man, his company and the times of the Golden Age of Model Aviation.
