OldModelKits SS Normandie Ocean Liner 1935, 1/350

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$950   

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.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$850   

Very rare version with the Bf-109s flying over a period town. Second issue of this famous kit, most likely from 1954 and possibly into 1955. Last Aurora Bf-109 with swastikas on the box art, molded into the vertical stabilizer, on the instructions and on the decals. Aurora modified the molds for this issue, including landing gear and wing-mounted bombs. Molded in the correct gloss burgundy and clear. Never started and 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. This artwork is by Jim Cox. According to his son, Art Cox, and the village is most likely rendition of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge and a stylized Philadelphia skyline and older buildings in Camden, NJ in the foreground.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$55

This kit is one of a very successful line of 1/48 WWI aircraft that Aurora launched in 1956. The line sold so well that new kits were added into the 1960s.

Comet New York Central Lines M.D.T. Wood Sheathed Refrigerator - (Wooden Billboard Reefer) HO Craftsman Kit with Sprung Metal Trucks, 1/87, 4

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$44   

Comet was a very famous manufacturer of flying stick and tissue as well as solid aircraft models. What is less well known is that Comet produced HO equipment during the HO boom of the late 1930s/1940s. This is an excellent kit in an early box from the 1930s with plans drawn by the famous model designer Fred Schlienz. The kit features heavy bristol board sides and car ends that are completely factory decorated for New York Central lines in red, blue, white and black, precut and milled wooden roof, underside and frame, metal ladders, grab irons, steps, brake handle and other small parts, wooden pre-carved brake cylinder, metal sprung trucks and more. Features very well drawn full size plans. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

Sterling Curtiss P-6E Hawk - 16 inch Wingspan Flying Model Aircraft that Drops Bombs in Flight, A10

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$75   

16 inch wingspan kit for free flight or control line. Includes innovative system for automatically dropping bombs in flight. 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 featured color decals, high-grade die cut balsa, vacuform plastic detail parts, plastic wheels (if required), finished wire landing gear, rubber motor and plastic prop, full size plans with instruction details and instructions for conversion to control line. The kit has never been started. Inventoried complete including decals and instructions.

Airfix Blackburn NA-39 Buccaneer - Craftmaster Issue, 1/72, 4-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$24   

One of the more dramatic Craftmaster boxes. A British carrier launches heavily battle-damaged Buccaneers with enemy ships within visual range. Other Buccaneers are taking heavy and accurate fire from the enemy, while one ship is engulfed in flames. Propeller driven aircraft fall burning from the sky. Kit features opening unique rotating bomb bay, folding wings and working arresting hook. The kit has never been assembled but has minor painting. NOTE: the inside walls of the cockpit have been painted. Paint quality is good. It could be painted over or stripped in DOT3 brake fluid or other safe stripper. There is no other painting. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The Buccaneer was the world's first purpose designed low level 'below the radar' bomber. Low level strike aircraft have a shorter airframe life limit due to the stresses of low level flying, so the Buccaneer was designed to be very strong and even had many sub-assemblies milled from solid metal.
