The entire Comet 1950s "N" line included the following (gaps mean there is no kit, at least at that time): N1 Tiger Shark P-40, N2 F-86D Sabre Jet, N4 Globe Swift, N6 Taylorcraft, N8 F-51 Mustang, N9 Helicopter, N11 Ryan Navion, N12 Firefly, N15 Piper Cub, N16 Fokker DVII, N17 Spad, N24 Phantom Fury, N25 Aeronca K (floats) and N26 Stinson SR-7. 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.

Sanwa Curtiss SB2C-1 Helldiver, 1/116, 1116

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$45   

Dates from the early 1960s and very hard to find. The kit is dated by the 'Tokyo Plamo' logo, which was used between 1960 and 1964. Inside, the model is factory new - all the parts and decals are still in the factory sealed clear bag. With instructions in 'excellent' condition. Sanwa was one of Japan's earliest post-WWII kit producers, making model kits in the 1950s; some sources say 1955. Kits were marketed under Sanwa and Tokyo Plamo, with the general consensus being the the later logo came out around 1960 or later. Production ended in 1964, making all Sanwa kits rare and collectible. The entire line was extensive. It included very small scale tanks (some that were motorized), battleships in three scales with the larger ones motorized with dual prop drive, slot cars, civil sport boats and an electric outboard, a full line of hand gun models that actually shot plastic bullets, two fighter groups and bomber groups (probably Monogram), several different lines of scale aircraft, missile kits, scale (static) car models of early Japanese automobiles, at least 7 flying model aircraft that had electric and rubber motors, a 'Super Control Stand' P-51 that moved with a joystick and had an electric propeller and sound unit, two different lighthouses and a windmill, an air cushion boat, motor cycles, a diving submarine (electric) and a working (rubber band) George Washington Class SSBN and even a garden tractor with an electric motor. Just before going out of business, Sanwa issued some kits in conjunction with the 1964 Tokyo Olympic games - these kits even included a copy of an Olympic medal.

Pyro Gouda Dutch Man-O-War - 17th Century, B212-400

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$79   

Rare Pyro kit from 1967. Large scale - measures about 14 inches long when assembled. Very nicely molded and detailed. Features well over 250 parts, individually molded cannon, cradles and cannon hull hatches, separately molded fife rails with belaying pins, pre-molded rat lines, billowing sails, blocks and two photos for use in rigging the ship. The kit has never been started. The white parts are still in the factory sealed bag; the brown parts were not sealed and have been inventoried complete including instructions. Any kit of a Dutch 17th Century Man-o-War is rare - this may be the only injection molded kit ever made of this famous subject. The Gouda fought in the Anglo-Dutch Wars. She was built about 1636 and was commanded by Jan Egbertsz Ooms. The Gouda and other ships from Witte de With's fleet were lost in a storm in early November 1653. Pyro did not cut molds based on popularity, but usually by the historical significance of the subject. This was not a good injection-molded model business practice, but many collectors and builders are grateful today for these kits. Please read the articles about Pyro Kit History and Pyro's founder. Both articles are located on this website.

Revell DC-7 Flagship American Airlines One-Piece Stand Arm Pre-S Issue, 1/122, H219-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$165   

Rare, true first issue dated 1955 with the correct Pre-S fantastic artwork of a DC-7 at the moment just before touchdown. Please note, this is the correct first release with the one-piece plastic stand arm and instructions that illustrate this. There is even a rarer factory rubber stamp on the instructions to correct step one! Also, the main gear axles are separate parts on this issue. On the second issues the gear struts were modified and the axles were moved to the wheels, and the stand arm was changed to two plastic parts because the one-piece stand arm was fragile and in use it broke easily. Very few were made as Revell quickly corrected this weakness. Correctly molded in gloss silver and clear and a large, colorful decal sheet. Inside, the kit has never been started. Inside, the kit is exactly as it left the factory with all small parts still factory sealed in the 'krinkle' clear bag and the larger parts not sealed and inventoried complete. Instructions are 'excellent' with the detailed American Airlines route map on the back. Decals are 'excellent' also and flat with no curl and light yellowing. The box has a tear as shown, clear tape on the long sides and general wear as shown. All four corners are solid and original and the color and gloss are excellent.

Marx Chris Craft Constellation With Power Kit - 30 Inches Long, 1/20, 5707

Can be made for radio control or as a highly detailed static model. Molded with cast metal accessories, metal and brass hardware and classic 1950s turquoise, brown, white, clear and peach colored and chrome plated plastic. Includes the captain, deck chairs and the two 'Bathing Beauties'. Even rarer than the kit itself is the included 'Marx Chris Craft Twin Electric Motor Power Kit' which is mint in the box. Inside it has two 'Mighty Monty' electric motors, battery holder, motor holders, wiring, switches, full instruction sheet and more. Both the Power Kit an and the model have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts. NOTE: the boat has very minor assembly: #1 small retainers, rudder post and prop shaft post have been installed to 'excellent' quality. There is no other assembly. One bathing beauty has her bathing suit painted red. There is no other painting. NOTE: The flat hull glass windows have glue marks and smears; I have included them but also included plenty of thick plastic clear stock. You can easily duplicate these windows as they are simply flat clear parts. Just cut then bigger than the hull window openings and glue to the inside. Shipping insurance is required for this kit.
