Monogram Willey Ley Passenger Rocket, 1/192, PS47-149

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc-

$225   

Rare first issue dated 1959. One of a very famous series of space kits that Monogram made with the designer Willey Ley. The model is molded in three colors and features a two stage rocket with separating stages, upper shuttle craft, retracting landing gear, launching pad and five figures. 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.

Monogram Auto Racing Trio Gift Set - The Hot Rod-The Midget Racer-The Indianapolis Racer, 1/24, MGP8-298

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+++

$850   

One of Monogram's first plastic kit Gift Sets. Issued once in 1957 and very rare. Please read the condition of each kit carefully as there is some assembly. 'Hot Rod' is assembled and complete other than thin, flat windshield. Missing instructions. The 'Indy Car' is complete but has minor assembly to the engine block and some small details are painted silver; decals are excellent but instructions are missing. Midget Racer has not been started and is complete, including good instructions and decals. The box has wonderful color but wear as shown.

Monogram B-24 Liberator Speedee-Bilt - Five Star Super Deluxe Kit, 1/60, H4-495

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$750   

Dated 1954. This is the finest H4 Liberator that I have seen. The box has like-new color and gloss, four solid corners and only light general wear. The inside is like new also. Classic early multi-media kit with a fantastic internal box presentation. Before injection molded plastic kits were common, Monogram issued the famous 'Speedee-Bilt' and 'Super Kits' which featured injection molded details and precarved wooden parts. Of these, the Speede-Bilt B-24 and B-17 were the finest. These kits are rare today due to their relatively high original price of $4.95. This example is inventoried 100% complete with all parts, glue, dope, decals, sand paper, plans and instruction book. The kit has never been started. Still has all internal packing as shown. Amazingly, the celluloid plastic parts range from no warping to very slight warping. This is very rare, as that type of plastic was unstable and warp easily over time. Instructions, decals and plans are 'near mint' also, as are the parts sheets. No wooden parts have been punched out. This kit must be shipped insured.

Although created to 'box scale' (1/67 in this case), this model was very popular and remained in the catalog right up into the 1970s. Molded in the correct gloss silver and clear.

Hobby-Time Bell XV-3 US Army Convertiplane, 1/43, 901-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM++

$125   

From the 1950s. One and only issue in amazing, investment grade condition. I personally removed these kits from the original Hobby-Time shipping box - it is the first time they have seen light since the factory. There is very, very little wear - only as much you would expect from the original packing and boxing operations. This is a very nice kit for that time with fine raised panel lines, interior detail and molded in gloss silver and clear. The kit has never been started. The original 'krinkle' bag is present but brittle and cracked. I inventoried the parts and they are 100% present. The decals and instructions are in 'mint' condition.
