1972 kit from the famous movie and the Aurora of Canada issue. Not the common reproduction. This example is in very good condition outside and 'factory new' inside. Well detailed kit features full interior with cockpit and removable top. Molded in the correct white, dark green and clear for this issue. The kit has never been started. Inside, it is exactly the way it left the factory. The parts that were in factory sealed bags (dark green) are still factory sealed.

Life-Like Robert E. Lee Mississippi Steam Boat - (ex Pyro), 1/160, B237

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$129   

1970 issue from original Pyro molds. Very large and well detailed kit for that time. The race between the Lee and Natchez is considered a classic tale of The River. Although the Lee won, the circumstances were suspect and many people still considered the Natchez the fastest paddle-wheel packet ever. For example, the Lee carried no payload and the Natchez was carrying passengers and a normal payload. All details of the real ship, including the wooden railings and carvings are duplicated in plastic. Includes full rigging instructions and thread. Molded in tan and ivory plastic. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The very few parts that were never factory sealed (the large ones and paddle wheels) have been inventoried complete including colorful flag sheet and instructions.

Revell Northrop SM-62 Snark Intercontinental Guided Missile, 1/80, H1801-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$89   

Rare 1957 original issue with fantastic artwork. An excellent kit for that time, it features a detailed Snark with launch boosters and drop tanks as well as extensive decals, base and working launcher with fueling tank, instrumentation, access stairs and platform, base control unit and crew of two. Molded in the correct glossy red plastic. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. Please note, the box displays much better than the "Very Good++" grade but is graded as such because there are some light brown stains on two of the sides.

Ideal 1956 Desoto Fireflite 4 Door Friction Drive Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$39   

Original dealer promotional model in 'good-' condition. There is very little body warping which is rare. The original friction drive is intact. Cream and purple color is original but has general wear and some age foxing as shown. The clear is 'very good' but can use cleaning. The tires are almost like new - if it was played with, it was not for long. No parts are missing and it is original except that the chassis has been painted black and some of the fine trim (door handles, trim, etc) has been correctly and very neatly adult painted. The quality is good enough to pass for factory paint.

Very nicely done model. Large scale model measures 23 inches long when assembled.

The kit has never been started. All of the metal fittings are still in the factory sealed bags. The parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete along with the decoration sheet, instruction book and large plans all in excellent condition.

TMY WACO Biplane 29.5 Inch Gas Model Airplane

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$275   

Very rare. This is an early Japanese export kit from TMY in Tokyo, probably dating right around 1960. It was clearly intended for control line operation. The kit has a very high degree of prefabrication for that time, featuring fully cut and ready to assemble plywood fuselage bulkheads, fully cut balsa wing rigs, cut out (but final sanding required) wheels pants, tail planes and all other wood parts, strip wood, formed wire main gear strut, balloon-type main wheels and solid tail wheel, an extensive (still sealed) hardware packet, wood for sheeting, silk covering material (still sealed) and full size plans. The kit has never been started. The internal condition is exceptional; many parts are still attached to the orange factory display board with string; even more are still wrapped with the factory green tape. The kit has been inventoried complete with all parts and plans. It must be shipped insured.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$95   

Sale Pending
Email for availability.

1973 issue of this classic large-scale 'Action Model' from the original Four Star Monogram line. Has great detail for that time and many great features: canopy opens and closes to show highly detailed cockpit, prop and wheels turn, tiny levers under the wings drop 2 bombs and a small knob on the bottom rotates and extends/retracts main gear and tailwheel; all gear doors including the tailwheel open and close automatically with the gear. Not only do these features sound great, but they work. My built kit is 30 years old and functions like new! Molded in clear, silver and black. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: I would grade the decals only 'good+'. They are flat, not peeling and 100% intact but they have light staining to the backing paper only (not to the actual transfers).

Revell USS Helena Picture Fleet Issue - (Los Angeles - Fall River - Baltimore - Pittsburg - Columbus - Bremerton - Canberra - Toledo - Quincy - Chicago - St. Paul - Macon - Boston) - Picture Fleet / Master Modelers Club Issue, 1/481, H370-169

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$169   

Very rare. This is the original hardbox issue USS Helena from 1960 and not the 1990s reissue. It has the beautiful John Steel painting suitable for framing. The kit contains decals to build any of these sister ships - Los Angeles - Fall River - Baltimore - Pittsburg - Columbus - Bremerton - Canberra - Toledo - Quincy - Chicago - St. Paul - Macon - Boston. It is molded in the correct glossy gray plastic for this early issue. The kit has never been started. It is factory new inside, with all the parts and all paperwork still inside the Revell factory sealed clear bag.

Italaerei Waco CG-4 Hadrian Assault Glider - USAAF Normandie / USAAF Sicily / RAF, 1/72, 118

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$39   

Same as the Testors issue, as Italaerei originally made the molds. Nicely detailed kit with a very fine fabric texture, full cockpit, complete interior including troop benches, wheels and skids and two paratroopers. Has markings for all three aircraft. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The Waco CG-4 was designed and initially built by Waco Aircraft Company of Troy, OH. It first saw action in Sicily and the operation was termed a disaster. This likely had more to do with planning than the actual glider. Missions in Europe, including D-Day, went much better. The glider was even deployed to Burma. It could carry up to 13 troops, or a jeep and four men, or a 75mm Field Gun.

NOTE: this kit has very minor, 'professional' quality subassembly as follows: center console is glued to the floor. There is no other assembly. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present.

Monogram Boeing F4B-4 - 2nd Squardron CV-2 USS Lexington F4B4 - Blue Box Issue - (F4B4), 1/72, PA209-70

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$22   

First issue from 1968. Markings for Fighting Squadron 2 which operated from the USS Lexington (CV-2) in the 1930s. Very finely molded and detailed kit with traditional high Monogram quality. The kit has never been started. Inventoried and NOTE: missing the tiny clear windscreen. Otherwise includes all other parts, decals and instructions. The last 'Boeing Bipe' was one of the most maneuverable planes ever built. It had a top speed of 184 mph and was unusually rugged. The box would grade higher, but there is masking tape on the two long sides.

Revell Moon Ship 'S' Issue, 1/96, H1825-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$295   

Rare 1957 first and only issue. When sales of the dramatic XSL-01 Moon Rocket did not meet expectations, Revell molded the top stage in a different color plastic from the XSL-01, added a special 3D Moon Base Stand and boxed it as a stand-alone kit. The result was this Moon Ship with incredible box art. The box art invites you to 'Enter the Age of Space' with these action features: retractable landing ski, removable fuselage section with detailed cabin with controls and instrument panels and a crew of three astronauts. The box is in 'Very Good++' condition with perfect color and gloss, four solid corners, no tear, rips, holes or fading and no price tag or tape (other than the factory sealing tape of course). There is general wear as shown.. Molded in correct baby blue and clear plastic. This model has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
