Heller Etendard IV Type M, 1/50, 500

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$64   

Large 1/50 scale Etendard IV. Nicely molded older kit featuring fine raised panel detail, cockpit, folding wings, working arresting gear, optional position landing gear and speed brakes and real rubber tires. Includes drop tanks and underwing weapons as well. This is the second issue of the very rare 'operating kit' of the Etendard IV. The original issue had automatic speed brakes and retractable landing gear. The model used a complex series of 6 cogs and gears with wire springs and twine to make functioning landing gear and speed brakes. When you lowered the arresting (tail) hook, the landing gear doors opened and the nose and main wheels extended. When you raised the arresting hook, the landing gear retracted and the doors closed. Furthermore, when you pulled out the parachute release at the tail, the speed brakes lowered. When you closed it, the speed brakes closed. Please note that although this model is from those molds, it does not have those action features - only the ones that I listed. This kit has never been started. It is either still in the internally sealed factory bag or has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Revell American Firefighters Hose Reel - Brazil Issue, 1/48, H702

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$45   

Kikoler issue from Brazil. Molded in the correct white, red and gold. Includes two highly detailed horses, hitch, carriage with frame detail, flexible hose, rope and metal chain, along with two firefighters and a Dalmatian dog. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Please NOTE that the instructions have a closed tear. Marlin first cut the molds in 1952 and issued the six original American Firefighters (Chemical and Ladder, Steamer, Hook and Ladder, Water Tower, Aerial Ladder and Hose Reel) in 1952. Revell signed a marketing agreement with Marlin in 1953. Five of the kit were released with the Revell name and marketing name 'Collectors Kits, Closter N.J.' Revell added the horse parts as they were not originally part of the Marlin issues. The kits made excellent display pieces, but they never caught the imagination of young men like jet aircraft did. The five molds were shipped to Brazil. After run for Kikoler (Revell Brazil's Distributor), they were shipped back to the USA but the molds were lost at sea.

Hobby Craft Vought F4U-4 Corsair - US Marines VMF-312 (Ex-Idea / Ex-Monogram) - (F4U4), 1/48, HC1511

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$22   

Some molds have a colorful history; this one is no exception. At one point, Monogram leased or sold a set of Corsair molds (from the original 4 Star action kit) to Idea in Korea. Idea copied the molds, modifying them with a tab on each tree with the Idea name. Hobby Craft's kit is the Idea copy of the Monogram Corsair (right down to the blue and black parts) with the Idea tab. On the outside of many Hobby Craft boxes it says 'Make in South Korea' - obviously Idea is one of the agents who molded kits for HC. 'Working Action Model' with many features; wings fold, landing gear and tail wheel retract and all gear doors close, working arresting gear and rotating wheels and prop. Under-wing stores feature missiles, bombs and drop tanks. Includes decals for Marine version. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora Me-109 Brooklyn (Bf-109) - Famous Fighters of All Nations (Bf-109), 1/48, 55-59

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

$595   

Very rare first issue. Of the Brooklyn series, this is usually considered the hardest kit to find. Inside, the kit is 100% correct with no rivet detail, no bombs and no landing gear. The color is the unique first run non-metallic medium red with clear canopy and stand. The stand is the correct square one marked 'Brooklyn.' The instructions are correct Brooklyn also, and the decals are the proper early 'Tatem Company' issue with the swastika. The box grades 'very good+++' It has four solid corners, no missing litho or litho tears, no repairs, no price tags or tape (other than the factory sealing tape). There is general light shelf and edge wear. This kit has never been started. It has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, 'very good++' decals and 'excellent' instructions. This kit must be shipped insured.

Aurora Northrop P-61 Black Widow, 1/48, 392-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$179   

Still mint in the factory seal. Hardbox issue dated 1960 - however, this issue lacks the 'Famous Fighters' in the oval logo boarder and has a 198 price extension, so it likely from 1961. Large 1/48 scale kit. This has to be some of Jo Kotula most fantastic artwork - the P-61 patrols over a South Pacific island base at night, destroying an intruder (or defender?).
