Monogram Whirlwind - 30 Inch Wingspan Pre-Fabricated Gas Powered Control Line Model, C-1

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+


Monogram's first aircraft model dated 1946. A very rare kit for the advanced collector. When you see this model, it's easy to see how Monogram took the modeling world by storm. The kit is highly engineered, tested and very prefabricated. The balsa body is 24 inches long and completely finished. Wings are completely finished with airfoils. The tail parts are cut to shape and the metal landing gear wire is bent to shape. All other wire parts are fully formed and it includes rubber tread wheels as well as plastic canopy and spinner and decals. The cowling is hinged to provide easy access to the engine, coil, battery and fuel tank. Includes two very large sheet of full size plans/instructions as well as sandpaper, all required hardware, printwood and more. Inside, the kit is like new. It has never been started and all cardboard dividers are intact. All small parts are still in the factory sealed bag. All other parts have been inventoried complete. The plans and decals are excellent and the even the original factory tissue packing paper is still present. The box has excellent color, four solid corners, no repairs and the original factory sealing tape on the sides and bottom tray. The box grades 'excellent+' and the only flaws are general light edge, corner and shelf wear. Postal insurance is required for this kit.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


Very highly detailed kit with over 250 parts. Features complete engine and engine compartment, detailed cab with complete interior, opening hood, full suspension and underside details and more. Builds a full rolling chassis just like the full-size truck. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed (chrome only) have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the instructions are very high quality, full size photocopies.

Aurora Boeing B-29 Superfortress, 1/76, 372-259

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM


Rare 1956 issue with the square 'Northern Lights' logo and arguably the most dramatic and fanciful B-29 artwork from the "Golden Era" of modeling. This is the second issue of this kit. The box is in exceptional condition with brilliant colors and gloss. There are no split corner and no repairs. Light edge wear as the only flaw. Responding to market sources that boys wanted larger kits, Aurora introduced the B-26 followed by the B-29 and B-25, all of which sold well for many years. Never started and inventoried 100% complete with very high gloss silver parts, correct large 'Globe' two piece clear stand and correct decal sheet, mint condition instructions and even the original packing tissue paper.

Aurora Sikorsky S-55 Helo - (ex-Helicopters for Industry), 1/45, 503-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++


Second issue, likely from around 1962/63 because of the logo and 98 cent price extension. Has the same box art as the original issue but with the newer style logo (with no 'Famous Fighters' in the boarder) at the upper right. From the ex-Helicopters for Industry molds. Features fine raised detail, cockpit seats, instrument panel and control sticks, opening cabin door, floats with wheels and decals for US Air Force, Navy, Army or Marines. Molded in a stunning gloss dark blue and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

AMT The Monkeemobile Modified GTO - (The Monkees Mobile), 1/25, 605-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++


Rare original issue dated 1967. The original two 'mobiles were designed by Dan Jeffries, not George Barris. Both cars were used to promote the Monkees and the hit TV show. Features detailed 389 CID GTO engine with blower, molded underside with separate rear suspension and exhaust system, full custom interior, optional touring car convertible top, custom wheels and Monkees keychain. Molded in the correct dark gloss red, clear, chrome and with real rubber tires. The chrome is 'excellent++.' The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the decals are complete and intact but the background paper is stained and there are a few small parts lifting. I have put them in a zip lock to keep them intact. The box top is actually 'excellent' but I have graded the box 'good++' because there are water stains on the box bottom (box tray).

Dumas Essex Class Aircraft Carrier 36 Inches Long, 1/290

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++


Very, very rare kit from 1945. This is the only one I have ever seen or heard of. Dumas advertised this kit as 'A beautiful 36" model as accurate as possible under war conditions' and that was no idle boast. By all appearances it was the most detailed US aircraft carrier model ever made to that date. Features hollow construction, airwing, factory marked bulkhead balsa blocks, high quality balsa printwood, other wood as required, metal stock, rigging material, sandpaper, an unopened can of 'Delicate Gray' Gloss Enamel (with a 'Four Hour Drying Time") and a glass bottle of glue. Amazingly, the glue and paint area still both a liquid and not dried up. Comes with text instructions and plans. The two very large sheets of plans were drawn by Al Dumas Jr. They include full side and top elevation views, sectional views and a large number of detail drawings for AA guns, aircraft construction and much more. There is light bug damage to one side of one sheet but it is minor. The kit has not been started. The contents are mint - you will be the first to remove them from the box. They are still factory packed with factory packing paper. Dumas says inside this is an Essex-Class carrier, but due to wartime censorship and the initial secrecy surrounding the Essex class, the kit is not a perfect Essex. When more information became available after the war, this may have been why the model was discontinued so soon.

AMT Lockheed AC-130H Spectre Hercules, 1/72, 8690

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++


Highly detailed with (2) M61A Vulcan 20mm rotary cannons, (1) 40mm Bofars Cannon and (1) 105mm Howitzer, complete cockpit and full interior, ecm pods, engine infrared shields, Suu-4A pods, ALQ-87 pods and full decals.

Hasegawa Sopwith Camel (F.1 Camel) - 1/8 Scale Museum Model Series, 1/8, CP-02

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++


Very rare and large 1/8 scale museum quality kit. The three 1/8 aircraft in this series are widely considered to be the finest model aircraft ever produced. This kit duplicates the classic Sopwith Camel using many of the original material in a near perfect representation of the inner structure of the aircraft. There are 1,198 parts made from die-cut plywood, Japanese cypress, cast soft metal, brass, aluminum, rubber, injection molded plastic and many other materials. The wingspan is 1067mm (42 inches) when assembled. The engineering of the kit is world-class right down to the assembly plans. Inside the kit has never been started. All parts are still sealed in the factory parts bags. Includes all plans, decals, instructions and paperwork. As an added precaution, I have carefully inventoried all small metal parts through the plastic bags as occasionally a bag will split open. They are confirmed to be 100% complete. Please note, this item must be shipped insured.

Life-Like Robert E. Lee Mississippi Steam Boat - (ex-Pyro), 1/160, B237-800

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


1970 issue from original Pyro molds. Very large and well detailed kit for that time. The race between the Lee and Natchez is considered a classic tale of The River. Although the Lee won, the circumstances were suspect and many people still considered the Natchez the fastest paddle-wheel packet ever. (For example, the Lee carried no payload and the Natchez was carrying passengers and a normal payload.) All details of the real ship, including the wooden railings and carvings are duplicated in plastic. Includes full rigging instructions and thread. Molded in tan and ivory plastic. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The very few parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete including decals/flags and instructions. NOTE: parts are from the Life-Like issue, but the instructions and decals are from a newer Lindberg issue. This is ideal as a builder because you get the earlier mold quality, the Lindberg instructions are much better and the decals are fresh and also better than what Life-Like provided.

From about 1967. In addition to cars, ships, planes and figures, Pyro added an excellent line of well-known and not-so-well-known life-sized (1/1) scale pistol and rifle models to their line. In each case Pyro gained access to the actual weapon during the kit design, insuring a very accurate model.
