Pocher Alfa Romeo Spider Touring Gran Sport 1932, 1/8, K73

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Pocher made the finest automobile models ever created. The detail and working parts on these long out-of-production, big 1/8 scale kits is amazing. It includes 1954 parts of plastic, brass, steel, leather, iron, rubber, copper and many other material. Working features include operating steering, working suspension, lights that operate from the dashboard, doors that open and close with operating door latches and handles, starting handle that operates the crankshaft, connecting rods, pistons, V-belts, Fan, dynamo, etc in the engine. The convertible top operates - and much, more more. Recommended for experienced modelers only. Never started. Everything on the inside is as it left the factory - all parts are still sealed in the factory bags. With decals and instructions. The box displays higher than the grade, but it is graded 'very good' because of damage to one corner and there is tape there. NOTE: This is the desirable early version with the most realistic wheel construction. Each wheel is built just like a real spoke wheel with individual spokes and well over 100 parts. Shipping insurance (and Express Mail for international customers) is required.

Airfix Fairey Rotodyne, 1/72, 482

1960s 'Type Three' logo issue. Nicely detailed and molded kit. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The Rotodyne first flew in 1957. The purpose was to create the first true vertical take-off airliner that could operate from an area no larger than two tennis courts with a full load. The Rotodyne flew at up to 191 MPH with a range of 450 miles and a payload of 48 passengers or 5 tons of freight. Despite the excellent performance and a larger design in the works, the RAF never placed an order and BEA never placed a firm order. The project was discontinued in 1962.

Boucher 100 Foot Harbor Tugboat With Machine Carved Hull, 1/96

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Very rare, especially in this condition. Boucher was one of the earliest successful high-quality model companies in the USA. It was founded in 1905 Horace E. Boucher, a French-born naval architect employed by U.S. Navy Department and head of the Navys model shop in Washington. Boucher kits were prized posessions at that time and naval museums displayed built versions - there are more than 40 Boucher kits in the Smithsonian alone. Boucher pioneered the mass production of cast metal fittings and selling full kits to the general public. Some credit him with starting the infant model industry in the United States that grew to prominence in the 1950s. At the very least, he took what had been the hobby of a tiny handful of skill crafts man and made it into a hobby that almost anyone could enjoy. This is a wonderful model featuring a stunning hardwood fully carved full hull, other wood stock are required, clear material for the pilothouse, the correct factory box of fittings (a miniature of the large box) stamped "100 Ft Harbor Tug Boat, " full text instructions that are very detailed for that time and full size plans. The actual ship measures 13 inches long when assembled. The kit has never been started. All the fittings except the screw are still factory sealed in small wax paper bags. All non-factory sealed parts are complete with paperwork.

Sterling Stearman PT-17 Kaydet Dusts Crops in Flight - 22 Inch Wingspan for R/C / Control Line / Free Flight, A2

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Very nicely produced stick-and-tissue model that actually releases 'crop dust' in flight. Can be flown with rubber, electric or gas control line or converted to RC with modern lightweight systems. Features high quality die-cut balsa sheet parts, stripwood and spars, fully formed wire landing gear struts, finished wheels, other wood and metal stock as required, light plastic engine, exhaust and pilot bust, clear dual die-cut windscreens, rubber motor, plastic prop, a big set of decals, covering tissue and excellent full size plans with detailed instructions. Never started. The kit has been inventoried complete with all parts, decals and plans. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they had the action features and included everything needed to complete the model.
