Resin Model Kit, Box Condition: VG
Oldmodelkits.com has received exclusive license from French Lines/CGT to produce and sell the SS Normandie in 1/350 scale. This nine-year project is a 100% new kit. Seven of those years were spent accurately modeling the ship from scratch in TurboCAD. All this design work was done by a master modeler and engineer who helped pioneer industrial CAD and 3D printing at GM. This limited-run kit represents the Normandie from her 1935 maiden voyage to New York and has over 1,100 individual parts. The hull and larger parts are pressure-cast resin from de-aired molds. There are two large photoetched brass sheets (one for railings, ladders, details, etc. and one for the davits), three sheets of laser-cut, real wood printed decking (from Scale Decks), decals, flag sheet and a DVD with detailed, highly illustrated instructions including painting guide, step-by-step rigging instructions and research material. NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured.

Multimedia Model Kit, Box Condition: VG
Very, Very Rare. One of 350 made. Very highly detailed, large scale kit with about 600 parts. Features full engine, rolling chassis, cockpit and much more. The kit has never been started. Inside, the kit has never been touched and is as it left the factory. All the parts that were factory sealed (which is almost all of them) are still factory sealed. The few that were not sealed have been inventoried complete. Please note that the original paint condition ranges from 'excellent' to 'poor.' One plastic piece has two clean breaks but is complete and a straight-forward repair. This kit is fragile and sold as a collectible only. Thanks to Giovanni Ingrao and Scalemotorcars for the following information: This kit is the forerunner of all large-scale Pocher car kits. From 1972 to 1979, Ar-Po (Arnaldo Pocher) produced quality train accessories. But in May of 1981 Arnaldo, with help from his son-in-law Adelmo Canali (a famous Italian model maker), set out to create the their first car kit: The Peking-Paris race winner, Itala 35/45 CV. from 1907. They started production in 1983 and sold it under the name brand "Metrop - Produced by AR-Po." Production was limited to 350 kits. It is a very highly detailed kit with parts in plastic, wood (where the real car had wood), pewter, brass, copper, aluminum, steel, leather and more. It is very highly detailed, like the future Pocher kits. Arnaldo Pocher died in a tragic accident in 1989.

SALE!! First issue from 1957. This is the yellow-sided issue without the Parents' Magazine seal on the box art. Molded in the correct gloss light gray and black. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. This is part of the famous Aurora WWI series of 1/48 scale aircraft. The series began in 1956 and Aurora added new kits into the early 1960s. The line proved incredibly popular, so some of these kits were included in the 'mold upgrade' in the 1970s before Aurora went out of business in '76.

'White Box' release from 1978. This well detailed kit is molded in blue, silver, nickel/chrome plate, clear and includes authentic leather-like material for spare tire straps and flexible tires. Features a rolling chassis that builds up like the real car, fully detailed engine, suspension, exhaust and undercarriage, removable hood, full interior, driver figure, side-mount spare and more. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. NOTE: one small 'leg' of the headlight bar was broken off at the factory - you can tell because the chrome was plated over the break area! Can be replaced with very fine cylinderical stock plastic. From 1924 to 1930, this 660 lb "Jack the Giant Killer" raced and won against the traditional 2,000 lb juggernauts of it's day. Other than light weight, the design had many first such as cast aluminum wheels with integral cast brake drums, solid forged bar front axle, two liter straight eight engine with single overhead cam and three valves per cylinder, two exhausts and one intake with the combined area of the exhaust valves greater than the intake to scavenge the burned gases and more.

Very, very rare model of high quality. This is the only 1/48 kit ever made of the Butcher Bird prototype. Features complete resin cockpit, optional opened or closed canopy, separately molded ailerons, detailed engine, separately molded cowl flaps, color painting guide and full decals. There are very high quality cast resin main parts with recessed panel lines, a fret of nickel photo-etched parts and a vacuform canopy that is in great condition (not scratched, no yellowing). The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please NOTE that this issue builds only the early version; Legato has the 'late version' on the instructions also. Additionally, Legato shows the parts layout for the late version; and those parts are also in many of the assembly steps also. Many of the parts for the early version are very different! This made it a real challenge to inventory but I am convinced it is complete.
