Sterling L-19 Bird Dog - 17 inch Wingspan CL/Rubber Powered Kit that Drops Leaflets in Flight, A12-98

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

$65   

Still factory sealed. From the mid 1960s. 17 inch wingspan kit for rubber free flight or control line. Features an innovative system for dropping leaflets in flight. Includes quality die-cut balsa sheet parts, strip wood and spars, light plastic full engine cowl and other parts, die-cut clear windscreen, fully formed wire landing gear struts, finished main and tail wheels, rubber motor and plastic prop, covering tissue, a big sheet of full color decal and full size plans with excellent instructions. 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 compared to other manufacturers.

Silver Streak Wood Sheathed Refrigerator Car - North Western Mechanical Temperature Control Reeefer - HO Craftsman Kit With Metal Sprung Trucks, 1/87, S415-345

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$48   

Classic kit from the Craftsman Era of HO kits. Very detailed and well made kit. Silver Streak was one of a number of manufactures that created very realistic wood and metal kits during the 1940s and 1950s. This is, in my opinion, an exceptional kit. Includes pre-scribed and cut and factory painted and lettered hardwood sides decorated for North Western and all other required markings, fully milled and cut hardwood roof and floor, hardwood scribed and pre-painted car ends, metal door hardware and cast brake parts including levers, cast coupler pockets, underside girders, bolsters, ice hatches, brake wheel, metal ladders, grab irons, roof ribs and brake linkage, scale chain and more. This kit has complete underside detail and instructions to help with this tricky but rewarding task. Includes full size plans and instructions. The kit has never been started. All small parts are still internal factory sealed containers and all other parts have been inventoried present.

Athearn 40' Steel Box Car C & E. I. - Chicago and Eastern Illinois Railroad - HO Craftsman Kit with Sprung Metal Trucks, 1/87, A109

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$42   

Very high quality wood and metal kit from the Golden Age of HO Craftsman kit. Builds a very accurate and highly detailed prototype. Of the early metal box car kits, these are my favorites, with their popularity witnessed by the various reissues through the years. Almost all the parts that are metal on the actual box car are metal on the model. This and the factory paint, lettering and decoration makes these kits difficult to beat for scale appearance. Features stamped steel body, car ends and roof that are factory painted, lettered and decorated, steel ladders, doors, door guides and brake platform, cast metal running boards, bolsters, coupler pockets and three piece brake detail, stamped metal undercarriage beam with fine cross bearers, corner steps, grab irons and more. Includes trucks. The factory paint is excellent, and I have packed it so it will not be damaged in shipment. Due to the high degree of factory finishing, the only painting required for this kit is the interior floor and underside. The kit has never been started. The small parts are still in factory sealed envelopes and all other parts have been inventoried complete including instructions.
