Novo Techna Soviet Type S 9-BIS Series Submarine, 1/400, K4002

Plastic Model Kit

$14   

Ex-Soviet Union kit that is very well molded for that time with very fine detail and hull drain holes. Full hull model measures 7.5 inches long when assembled and includes display stand and decals. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags, which is attached to cardstock that is folded in two. At times the factory workers had to get pretty creative because of a shortage of staples. Beyond staples, I have seen the bag of parts attached with a clothing snap, a rivet or even sewn on with thread!

Email for availability.

Very rare. Giant scale Ohio kit that is probably 1/200 - if I am wrong, it is 1/192 or 1/196 scale. Measures 34 inches long but a small part of the stern must be cut off where the prop goes. Features one-piece full hull with fine recessed panel lines, raised details were appropriate, cast resin sail with diving planes, rear rudders and elevators and a cast metal 7 blade prop. In all, there are 7 parts. The workmanship is excellent, although experience with resin kits and their typical oddities will be required to build this model. Never started and complete. There are no instructions. The manufacturer is unknown.

Kabaya DSV Shinkai 6500 Research Submarine, 1/96

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$24   

Hard-to-find. Although the box appears toy-like, this is actually a large-scale model although a simple one. The plastic parts are on two sprue with recessed panel lines and 'very good' detail. General appearance and shape is very accurate to the actual vessel, which is the world's deepest diving manned submarine. The model is molded in a softer white plastic and has 15 parts, full decals (stickers) and very nice heavily illustrated instructions. The kit has never been started is complete. In case you were wondering (and I know some of you are),] "Big*1" is a rather giant stick of chewing gum, which is also included.

Toms Modelworks Baloa (Bowfin / Pompanito) and Gato (Wahoo 1942 or Bluefish 1942) Submarines, 1/350

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$48   

Includes both kits. The Baloa class model allows the builder to create several different subs within the class; the reference used was the Bowfin SS287 and Pompanito SS383 which are both museum ships. There is a personal letter typed and signed by Tom that explains that these kits were to be sold at the museum gift shops. The kit is full hull cast in resin. It is very highly detailed down to the drain holes and very fine decking. It includes resin detail parts and an extensive PE fret as well as full instructions. There are two hulls present for the Baloa, but one only set of resin and PE. The Gato kit can make one of two versions, the 1942 Wahoo or early cut down sail Bluefish 1942. It is also a full cast resin hull that is beautifully done. There are resin parts to 'make a generic Gato' also and extensive PE details with full instructions. The kits have never been started and are complete.

Cleveland Senior Albatross Glider With 10 Foot Wingspan, E-22

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$179   

Very rare in this condition and still in the original box. Giant glider designed for R/C or free-flight operation. Cleveland originally issued this kit in the 1940s and this is the final iteration dated 1959. There are R/C suggestions in the instructions but the hardware layout is up to you. The kit has never been started and is as it left the factory - I was the first one to go through it. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and plans. The plans are 'excellent' with some yellowing on the exposed panels and only several spots of very light and small bug damage. Although this is the original box, the Cleveland label is on one short side is torn.

Hasegawa I-401 Motorized Wood and Metal Submarine, 1/160

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$950   

Very, very rare. Few know that the first Hasegawa kits were primarily wood and there was quite a line of them. It appears that all were motorized, from the heavy cruisers, 1/300 IJN Battleships to a 1/400 NS Savannah and even a giant Iowa class battlewagon. This is the only submarine - I401 of the famous I-400 class airplane carriers. This giant kit measures 30 inches (762mm) long when built and is designed for static display or operation in water. Features a completely factory carved hardwood hull with no sanding required, fully cut and finished ribbed hardwood decks, factory assembled forward deck, numerous other hardwood parts all cut to shape, some small rough cut wood parts, a tiny scale aircraft model for the deck (plastic, 7 parts with decals, still factory sealed in the small box), numerous brass and metal hand-soldered parts including railings with stanchions, island gun decks and much more, metal props and drive shafts w/hull ports, a stunning all metal gear box with brass gears that is still mint in the box, a TKK Mabuchi DC motor still in the old-style box with instruction sheet, triple battery holders, reproduced photo of the built kit (and she is beautiful!), very large instruction sheet with numerous drawings for all steps and operation/motorizing notes (all in 'very good++' condition) and full-size blue prints in 'excellent' condition. The kit has never been started: NOTE: If the ship had decals or not is unknown from the instructions; there are none present. Beyond that, the kit has been inventoried with all other parts and paperwork. Even the original Hasegawa paper headers for the bags are present, and even the cardboard they were originally stapled to are present - although the bags were open, which is why I did the inventory. I have returned the contents to as close to factory condition as I could. You will notice yellowed cellophane in the photo - this kit originally had cello factory sealed over the inner box at the factory, so that the prospective owner could remove the box top and view the (factory sealed) contents. NOTE: the upper and lower boxes were complete but in very bad (poor) condition. I spent 4 hours fixing them correctly from the inside. Please be aware that I have rated them 'fair' and complete, but there were completely flat and in 5 parts when I received them. There is a great deal of wear, as you can imagine. NOTE: A shaft came off one diving plane but was present - I cleaned the parts and soldered it back into position.
