Alanger Tovarisch Training Ship (Ex-Gorch Fock), 1/185, 040008

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$39   

Large scale kit that is nicely detailed. Possibly from older Heller molds. Features a cleanly molded full hull with excellent deck detail, billowing vacuform sails and rigging diagrams. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions. This ship has an amazing and long history. She was originally the Gorch Fock, which was built in 1933 at Blom und Voss shipyard as a training ship for the Kriegsmarine. She was given to the Soviets for war reparations in 1945. After being re-floated and undergoing 2 years of repairs, she served as the Soviet Navy training ship Tovarisch. Tovarisch began sailing in 1950 and won the International Sailing Regatta in 1974 and 76. She trained more than 17,000 cadets and was in over 40 motion pictures. In 2003, she was purchased back by German sponsors and returned to her home port in Germany, where she was given her original name back and became a museum ship at Stralsund.

$59   

Very nicely molded and detailed. Kit has over 110 parts and a 13 inch wingspan. The kit has never been started.

A tour of South and North America was conducted, but orders never materialized due to excessive fuel consumption and a lack of power. Total load was 170 passengers and crew, and the 12 engines developed 7200 HP.

Shizukyo German 75mm Assault Gun III Motorized With Light Up Gun Barrel, 1/50, TS-202-300

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$185   

Very, very rare and a very nice investment. Shizukyo started in the 1960s but was out of business before the end of the decade. This kit is probably from about 1963/64 and is well molded and detailed for that time and features motorized operation on the rear drive wheels to move the treads and a large flashing red bulb at the end of the barrel that 'fires' the gun. Features TKK Mabuchi RE15 motor that is still in the original old-style TKK box, complete with printed plastic wrapper and sealed accessory bag, all metal gear box, wire and sealed bag with motorizing hardware, the red electric light bulb, glue and decals. The actual kit is molded in a black or very, very dark green plastic. Inside, the kit has never been touched. All the smaller parts are still in the factory sealed bags and the big one has a paper header. However, one of the two bags had a 2" tear, so I inventoried the bag - it is complete with all parts. The only parts that were not sealed are the upper and lower hull, upper and lower turret and gear box/gears/drive shaft. The instructions are in 'excellent' condition and the decals are still in the sealed bag and 'very good' with moderate yellowing being the only flaw. Amazingly, the treads are in 'near mint' condition and completely intact - they are still very flexible! NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured.
