  Monogram Model Kits

Monogram A-1H Skyraider, 1/48, 5454

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$34   

Still factory sealed. Dated 1990. Classic high Monogram quality kit. Features complete cockpit, detailed main and tail wheel wells, optional position canopy and large weapons/drop tank loadout.

Monogram F-51D (P-51D) Mustang Action Model - Four Star Issue, 1/32, PA77-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$75   

Dated 1962. First issue of this classic 'Action Model' with great detail and mold quality. Features opening canopy to show the highly detailed cockpit, tiny levers under the wings drop 2 bombs, a small knob on the bottom rotates and extends and retracts the main gear and tailwheel; all gear doors including 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 silver, black and clear. NOTE: this kit has minor, neat assembly. One part is glued to the interior of the wing ('professional' quality assembly), bomb halves are assembled ('excellent++), fin halves are assembled ('near mint') and the wheels and hubs are attached to the struts and roll properly ('excellent+'). There is no other assembly and zero painting. Inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. This kit has an interesting history. In 1961, Monogram introduced the 1/32 scale Phantom Mustang. This was a very ambitious project. The kit was transparent, highly detailed and included two electric motors. One motor raised and lowered the main gear and tail wheel while the other spun the prop. Two small levers on the base dropped bombs from the wings. It was molded in clear, silver, black, red and zinc chromate green. Although successful, the kit was expensive to produce and Monogram charged a hefty retail price of $4.98. As a way to create more revenue from the molds, Monogram cleverly created this kit - using some of the same molds as the Phantom Mustang. The silver parts tree was completely re-cut and does not match the Phantom version. The red stand, gears and motorizing features were simply left out and the model molded in solid colors. The gear retraction/extension features was retained, but not motorized. On the new silver parts tree they added a small knob (placed on the bottom of the wing) and the same for the bomb dropping mechanism. This lowered the price to $1.98 and this additional revenue hopefully helped pay down the original mold costs.

Monogram RB-66A Destroyer Blue Box Issue, 1/83, PA204-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

$45   

Still factory sealed. This is the original 1967 issue, not the 1990s reissue. Nicely molded and from the original 'Four Star' molds. Features rear gun turret, cockpit with three crew, opening bomb bay and bomb. Molded in silver and clear. When the Air Force phased out the B-66, they converted many into ECM aircraft, hence the RB-66A. Monogram seized this opportunity as a new lease on life for the B-66 molds and the result was this issue as RB-66 aircraft were being used in Vietnam in the late 1960s.

Monogram B-52 Stratofortress with Jet Sound Vietnam Camouflage Issue, 1/72, PA215

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$185   

Rare 1969 issue has Vietnam-style boxart on a high-gloss box. This is the 2nd release of this kit and the last with rare 'Jet Sound.' These models were designed with a major selling point - an internal parts display that could be seen by potential modelers at the store. The display showed major parts of the kit. Inside, all cardboard presentation is still mint and even includes the tissue packing paper. At this point (1969), Monogram had ceased making 'Monoglue', so the B-52 presentation cardboard has a empty spot for glue. Contains 207 parts. Very nicely detailed. Features crew of three, detailed cockpit, elevating and traversing rear turret, opening and closing bomb bay doors, operating wing flaps, operating spoilers, optional position entry hatch and landing gear, and optional parts to display one nacelle open to show the jet engine and of course battery-powered realistic Jet Sound. It has never been started. Inventoried with all parts, 'excellent++' decals, instructions, B-52 booklet and Jet Sound supplement instructions present. Please NOTE that box displays better than the 'good++' rating but I graded it as such because there is tape residue on the bottom of the four side panels.
