Aurora Me-109 Brooklyn (Bf-109) - Famous Fighters of All Nations (Bf-109), 1/48, 55-59

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

$595   

Very rare first issue. Of the Brooklyn series, this is usually considered the hardest kit to find. Inside, the kit is 100% correct with no rivet detail, no bombs and no landing gear. The color is the unique first run non-metallic medium red with clear canopy and stand. The stand is the correct square one marked 'Brooklyn.' The instructions are correct Brooklyn also, and the decals are the proper early 'Tatem Company' issue with the swastika. The box grades 'very good+++' It has four solid corners, no missing litho or litho tears, no repairs, no price tags or tape (other than the factory sealing tape). There is general light shelf and edge wear. This kit has never been started. It has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, 'very good++' decals and 'excellent' instructions. This kit must be shipped insured.

Monogram Speedee-Bilt Boeing PT-13 Kaydet Trainer, G5-100

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$134   

Rare kit from 1957 in very good overall condition. This is a highly prefabricated, rubber-powered, wooden scale flying model kit. It features beautiful, completely finished Monofoil upper and lower wings, die-cut fuselage sides and formers that are factory painted yellow, precarved wooden parts, fully finished wheels, die-cut clear windscreens, plastic engine, prop and pilot bust, fully formed wire landing gear, rubber motor, sandpaper, tissue, decals and excellent instructions. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes 'excellent+' condition decals and instructions. Before there were plastic models, there were wooden aircraft kits. These usually came in two types - solid and stick and tissue. The solid models were static and usually contained a few blocks of balsa and sometimes a detail part or two. These "Make Wood Look Like Plane" models required a very high level of skill in carving and finishing. The stick and tissue variety were slightly easier to build and provided the ultimate thrill - they could fly when complete with rubber power (and later with free-flight gas and eventually RC). They still required a great deal of skill, so manufacturers sought ways to make model building more accessible to everyone. One idea was pre-carving and/or prefabrication. This raised prices, naturally. Many manufacturers launched lines of 'easy' to build flying models but only Monogram succeeded in making an entire line at an affordable price that would actual fly. The original "Speedee-Bilt" kits were in one-piece two-color boxes. In the early 1950s, shortly before plastic kits were available, Monogram changed to the 'hardbox' with a lithographic slick glued to the top as this kit. Speedee-Bilt kits contained die cut and pre painted wooden parts, completely formed airfoil wings, carved wheels and numerous plastic details like engine cowl, pilot, missiles, prop and more. Assembly was by detailed full size plans.

Lindberg Junkers JU-88, 1/64, 545-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$54   

Late 1950s hardbox issue with Gaedke artwork in amazing, investment-grade 'Near Mint' condition. Box has factory-new color and gloss, four solid corners, no fading, no tape, no tags and no marks from either. Very light wear - mainly on the lower long panel- is the only flaw. The model has many operating features- detailed engines with removable cowls, retracting landing gear, movable control surfaces and full crew. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Lindberg is a company with a fascinating history The original 'Lindberg Line' stretches back to the 1930s when Paul Lindberg drew plans for famous modeling magazines and marketed his balsa wood 'stick and tissue' by urging dealers to carry the '...Complete Lindberg Line'. After the war, Lindberg and Olsen had a strong hand in early United States injection molded kit development. Please see the article located on this website about early USA plastic kit manufacturers.

Franklin Mint Armour Collection F-86 Sabre 'Mig Mad Marine' John Glenn, 1/48, B11C990

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$109   

Rare. Brand new, never removed from the box and complete. High quality die-cast model that is completely factory built and painted. Please note the canopy is present, but Franklin Mint shipped them off the model. You have to snap it on to install it. When I saw this kit had never been removed from the packaging, I did not open it. If any of the paperwork is important to you, let me know before you purchase and I will check for you. This is what Franklin Mint says about each of these models: "Each of our die-cast models are hand-assembled and hand painted to ensure quality and authentic detail. To create each exciting precision replica, our designers and engineers make exhaustive examinations of their subject from every conceivable angle; photographing, sketching and in many cases studying the actual plans. Months are spent sculpting a scale prototype that captures even the most intricate details. The result: A precision-engineered model of unsurpassed quality that you will be proud to own and display. Each is a masterpiece of the model maker's art, reflecting our passion for perfection, our total commitment to superb craftsmanship, and our abiding respect for quality and authenticity."

Megow Ranger Class B Gas Model - 44 Inch Wingspan Early Free Flight Aircraft, E-22

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$175   

Very, very rare. From the late 1930s or pre-war 40s. Fred Megow once stated that they lost money on the big gas models and sold very few; they were done for status only. This is a one owner kit; the box top and tray are in good condition given the age of the model; that stain on the litho lowers the overall grade to 'good'. The box top and bottom are 100% intact, never repaired and have great corners. Inside, the kit has never been touched. The small parts are still in the sealed paper envelope and it appears that the plans have never been unfolded. Includes quality printwood, stock balsa, factory cut stringers and spars (still held in a bundle together with the factory rubber bands), balsa and hardwood stock cut to general shape, fully formed wooden wheels, fully formed wire landing gear struts, sealed hardware packet and more. It is complete with all parts and plans. I do not see any covering tissue, but some models did not come with it (and it may be in the never opened plans).

Campbell Silver Spur Mine - HO Scale Craftsman Kit, 1/87, 388

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$59   

Excellent model featuring precut wood, metal, plastic and other parts. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still factory sealed; the ones that were never sealed have been inventoried complete. With instructions.

Lindberg Air Force Tank Destroyer P-47 Thunderbolt Motorized, 1/48, 303M

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$85   

Early Motorized release from the 1950s with hard box and classic Ray Gaedke Art. Molded in green and clear plastic with a large decal sheet that includes the checkerboard nose, rudder stripes and fuselage + wing invasion stripes. Never started. The motor is still factory sealed and the other parts have been inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Please note that the box displays much better than the 'very good' grade but is graded as such because both short sides have fading and significant wear near the edges. Lindberg is a company with a fascinating history The original 'Lindberg Line' stretches back to the 1930s when Paul Lindberg drew plans for famous modeling magazines and marketed his balsa wood 'stick and tissue' by urging dealers to carry the '...Complete Lindberg Line'. After the war, Lindberg and Olsen had a strong hand in early United States injection molded kit development. Please see the article located on this website about early USA plastic kit manufacturers.

Hawk Gloster Javelin Picture Gallery, 1/72, 502-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$68   

Rare 1955 issue in the 'Picture Gallery' series. The dramatic scene shows Javelins intercepting IL-38 Bison bombers. Some Sparrow-like missiles are clearly missing (ground clutter perhaps?) while another blows the wings forward on the uppermost Bison. This series was done before Bill Campbell started doing the artwork for Hawk. The current artist fell ill and Bill took over - hence the limited PG issues. Very nicely molded kit for the day with decals for WT946. Features full landing gear and 6 air to air missiles. The parts are the correct light silver plastic with the interesting transparent light green stand, stand arm and canopy. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.
