Aurora Japanese Sub I-19, 1/275, 728-150

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Mint

$89   

The original owner carefully cut around the factory seal and left it on the box top, thus creating a rare 'mint' condition, investment grade box. The I-19 is famous for firing history's most successful torpedo spread off Guadalcanal. On September 14, 1942, the I-19 was patrolling of the Solomons when she fired a 6 torpedo spread. Three hit and sank the US Carrier CV-7 WASP, and the remaining three exploded against the BB North Carolina and the destroyer O'Brien. The destroyer sank and the North Carolina had to be repaired at Pearl till November 16, 1942. The I-19's Glen seaplane also flew night reconnaissance on February 23, 1942 over Pearl Harbor for the planned second attack by Emily flying boats on that base. 1969 issue in the 'Big A' hardbox. Large scale kit is almost 16 inches long when assembled. This is an excellent model from Aurora's efforts of the late 1960s/early 1970s. Aurora knew that most of their kits were outclassed, so in the mid and late 1960s they cut a new molds with much better detail - the I-19 was one of those. Includes extra-large display stand, regular display stand, decals, flag sheet, periscope and cranes, detailed Glen Seaplane, conning tower and deck guns. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Surcouf was a huge 360 foot long submarine cruiser with twin 8 inch guns, heavy AA guns, torpedo tubes for two different diameter torpedoes and a seaplane/hanger. The advanced design had a range of 10,000 miles but experienced many important teething and design issues. Due to this fact, she was the only ship of her class. Her fate is unknown except that she was probably sunk in the Gulf of Mexico. Very finely molded full hull kit. Includes seaplane. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions.

LS Kaiten Miniature Submarine Kairyu, 1/72, B201-300

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$79   

Rare. One of only 8 ship kits ever issued by LS. The original kit dated from the 1960s; this may be the second issue and appears to be from the early 1970s. Operating model can be powered by a rubber motor which is included or the 'power egg' that attaches to the underside (not included). It appears to have a sort of automatic diving system - the diving planes are shown to move and there are clearly buoyancy chambers and free flood areas in the hull. Activation of the rubber motor is by the periscope. Kit is nicely done and includes two torpedoes that mount on the lower sides. Inside, the kit is like new. It has not been started. All small parts are still in the factory sealed bag, the metal parts, glue and rubber band are in a smaller sealed bag. The upper hull (molded in dark gray) was never factory sealed. Other parts are molded in red and dark gray. The kit has never been started. Decals and instructions are included; the instructions are on the inside of the box top.

Doyusha I-171 Japanese Submarine - Motorized, 1/400, 1-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$48

The kit is molded in dark brown/gray (above the waterline) and dark red (below the waterline). Includes a static display stand also. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. No decals are shown on the instructions, so I believe that Doyusha did not issue this kit with decals. I-171 lead a very active career from Pearl Harbor, Midway and beyond. She was diverted to supply duty and was depth charged and sunk on one such mission by DD-472 USS Guest and DD-475 USS Hudson, 1 February 1944, off Buka Island.

Lindberg Nautilus Atomic Submarine by Paul Lindberg, 704

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$89   

Rare first issue hardbox with script Lindberg logo. In the 1930s, Paul Lindberg was designing, building and flying stick and tissue aircraft like so many other men and boys of the time. His plans appear in Popular Aviation magazine and he made a good name for himself. When injection molding showed the way to increased kits sales in the late 1940s/early 1950s, he quickly teamed up with Mr. Olsen to create 'O-lin' models. Ray Gaedke was one the early artists for O-lin. In the early 1950s Paul Lindberg had control and had his name as the logo. The first logo is the one on this kit - 'Lindberg' in script with 'Products' arched across the top and 'Incorporated' arched across the bottom to create a broken circle around the script. Ray Gaedke continued his bold and colorful artwork for Lindberg, such as the box painting for the Nautilus here. The Nautilus appears to be the first sea vessel that Lindberg cut it's own molds for - the Chris Craft Express Cruiser, PT Boat, LST and Fleet Submarine (Ex-Varney) were done by O-lin. The model is an interesting work of fact and fiction - it includes a deck gun and what looks like a Regulus II missile for the deck! The scale is not known but it measures about 12 inches long when assembled. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
