Aurora Grumman F9F Panther Jet, 1/49, 22-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$65   

Dated 1960, but I believe this is actually a later issue due to the 100 cent price extension and no 'Famous Fighters' logo on the short box sides. Molded in a brilliant gloss deep blue and clear with the clear triangle 'World' stand. These molds are from one of Aurora's first two kits - the F9F and F-90. Aurora simply went out and purchased the early Hawk F9F and F-90 kits and copied them almost exactly. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Radio Shack Jeep Renegade R/C Digital Proportional - New In Box, 1/10, 60-3089

$115   

Never used or even removed from the box (other than my inspection). In amazing mint condition.

The jeep is still in the factory clear plastic 'protection' bag. The remote control was never sealed and it is 100% mint - it has never had batteries in it and all the chrome paint on the case is brand new. Includes the completely assembled jeep with antenna and remote. I don't see any instructions - since everything is done but the battery installation, there may have never been any. This is a 'ready to run' style model.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$34   

Piloted version of the famous A-4 (V-2) Rocket. The idea was the accuracy could be improved by providing a pilot who would do the final aiming then bail out. Several of the A 4b were actually built and test flown, but none with pilots. The reduced drag design, basically a two stage A 4B with strakes, was the intercontinental EMW A 9.

Revell M-50 Ontos - (ex-Renwal), 1/32, 8302

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$22   

1982 Revell reissue of the excellent Renwal kit. Very highly detailed kit including working treads, some interior detail, opening hatches and covers and more. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. NOTE: the box has moisture damage but the kit inside is all in 'excellent' condition. The Ontos was a unique vehicle. Ontos is a Greek word for 'The Thing' and the vehicles lives up to that. Developed along a new concept in mobile warfare, the Ontos has little defense other than movement but a very powerful offensive punch. It carries six 106mm recoilless rifles and .50 caliber spotting rifles. The firing sequence went like this: the crew of three would get out and hand load the six large guns. Then the Ontos would quickly move towards the target. Once sited, the gunner would fire the .50 caliber machines guns until he saw them hit the target - this assured that the 6 big rifles were on target also. At the time, he could fire a full salvo of 6 or in steps of two. The 8.5 ton vehicle would then speed away, moving to a safe location to reload.

ITC Halibut SSGN 587 Cam-A-Matic Submarine - (Electric Powered Diving Motorized Regulus Sub), 1/175, 3660-998

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$699   

From 1960. NOTE: kit is 100% complete but has minor (6 parts neat assembly so please read carefully. This model is the zenith of the ITC Design and Engineering Team, and maybe of all operational plastic model kits. It is not only rare but is considered the most complicated operating model ever produced. The large 24.75 inch submarine sails from the power of a large electric motor driving twin geared propellers. It changes headings, dives, surfaces, and a Regulus II missile comes out of the hanger and launches...all automatically. The engineering on this kit is fantastic and a major break-through for that time. The model worked, and did work well, but was certainly not a toy for inexperienced model builders. The high price ($9.98) and difficulties that youngsters had with assembly and operation made for a short production run. The fact the ITC left the model business for good shortly after releasing the kit contributed to the scarcity as well. The boxtop displays much better than the 'good' grade; I have graded it 'good' because the box has clear tape on it, split corners, a taped closed tear of 2.5" on one long side and general wear as shown. Molded in the correct white and red, with numerous metal shaft, chain, screws and the correct motor. Inside, the kit is in very good condition but NOTE: it has neat, minor assembly. The main batter cover, battery contact and wire have been assembled. It was adult done to 'professional' quality. On the top inner hull, parts 11, 16 and 14 are installed, to 'excellent+ to professional' quality. A very small 1/2" x 1/4" (1.3 x .6 cm) clear panel is installed on the underside center of the lower hull - the work done is 'excellent++' and it is watertight. There is no other assembly. The kit has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts present and decals (stickers) and instructions. Stickers and instructions are in 'near mint' condition. The factory internal packing cardboard is complete and in 'excellent+' condition as shown. NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured.

Cleveland Kling's Folkerts Speed King Racer - Balsa Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, 71

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$129   

Older issue in the cardboard box with 'Cleveland World Famous Models' printed in silver. From around 1937-1942. This is a Cleveland model in museum scale of 1/16. The kit came from a long time collector of 1930s and 1940s models and is in exceptional condition. All Cleveland kits were exceptionally complete and this one is no exception. This kit is specifically designed as a scale model with retractable landing gear. However, if you do wish to fly it, additional instructions are provided on the necessary modifications. Features very high quality balsa printwood and strip wood, covering material, highest quality plans, all parts required for assembly and decals (if issued with the kit). The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. 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 operating single-owner model airplane supply business, called 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 'Aviations 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.

Comet Meteor - 21 Inch Wingspan Balsawood Flying Aircraft, 3409

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$22   

Features traditional wood/tissue construction, quality printwood and spars, wood stock as required, fully formed wheels, thrust button, prop, rubber motor, covering tissue and detailed full size plans/building instructions. The kit has never been started. NOTE: missing narrow stipwood. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts present. Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.
