Heller HMS Victory with Sails And All D Fischer PE and Resin Sets, 1/100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$369   

Build the Ultimate HMS Victory with all 11 D. Fischer Super Detail Sets! They are designed for this kit and retail price of the aftermarket sets alone is 330 Euros or almost $400 USD. Includes D Fischer Photoetch Plates 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 & 8 as well as Resin Sets 9, 10 and 11. You can see these sets and download the instructions here: http://www.dafinismus.de/plates_en All 11 sets are brand new, never used and complete. They are still in the original black binder and the resin is packed very carefully. Instructions are on-line at the link above. The actual model is widely considered the most detailed model ship ever to be injection molded. Very large kit measures over 43 inches long with 2107 parts. Same molds as Airfix. This version includes billowing vacuform sails. Includes parts in several colors, full standing and running rigging instructions, standing and running rigging materials, sails, detailed plans/instructions, decals and flags. The kit has never been started. All parts that were originally in factory sealed bags are still factory sealed. The few that were not have been inventoried with all parts present. Flags and instructions/plans are present and in 'very good to excellent' condition. NOTE: the hull has a cleanly broken off section below the waterline. It fits back perfectly and I have taped it in place. The close up photo shows how well it fits back. There is a closed hull crack (about 3") behind it that is too fine to show up in a photo.

The X-5 was the first aircraft to change the angle of wing sweepback in flight, and paved the way for the legendary F-111 and F-14.

Hasegawa Sopwith Camel F.1 Museum Model, 1/16, MU01

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$195   

Incredibly well detailed skeletal model kit that was most likely inspired by Hasegawa's 1/8 scale Camel. The main difference between the two is the size (obviously) and that this model is plastic (while the 1/8 one was wood and metal). The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Sterling SE-5 Scout with 'Auto-Magic' Pilot - 20 inch Wingspan For Control Line or Free Flight, M-5

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$36   

Mid 1960s stick-and-tissue flying model with special 'Auto Magic Pilot' feature and 20 inch wingspan. Can be built for scale static display, rubber free-flight or gas powered control line or Auto Magic Pilot, where the aircraft flies by itself on a tether and maintains level flight. Features full size plans, many die-cut balsa wood parts, main spars, stringers, plastic nose radiator and exhaust manifolds, covering tissue, completely formed and painted wooden wheels, die-cut plywood parts, clear material for windscreen and steel pre-shaped landing gear struts. Full size plans are included that also include highly detailed text instructions. The kit has never been started. NOTE: missing decals and two sheets of parts have been very neatly adult punched out. Inventoried with all wood, metal and plastic parts present including plans/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 as they had the action features and were much nicer than most other kits of this type.

Monogram Speedee-Bilt F-86 Sabre Jet Flying Scale Model for Jetex, G13-100

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$145   

Scale flying model for use with the JETEX jet-power pack. Excellent pre-fabricated wood and plastic kit featuring beautiful, fully finished Monofoil solid balsa wings, factory painted die-cut balsa parts, plastic intake, exhaust, pilot and missiles, other balsa parts factory cut to shape, fully finished wheels and wire landing gear, a clear vacuform canopy (still mint and not yellowed, template sheet, full color decals and extensive instructions with numerous illustrations and full size plans. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Before there were plastic models, there were wooden aircraft kits. These usually came in two types - solid and stick and tissue. The solid models were static and usually contained a few blocks of balsa and sometimes a detail part or two. These "Make Wood Look Like Plane" models required a very high level of skill in carving and finishing. The stick and tissue variety were slightly easier to build and provided the ultimate thrill - they could fly when complete with rubber power (and later with free-flight gas and eventually RC). They still required a great deal of skill, so manufactures sought ways to make model building more accessible to everyone. One idea was pre-carving and/or prefabrication. This raised prices, naturally. Many manufactures launched lines of 'easy' to build flying models but only Monogram succeeded in making an entire line at an affordable price that would actual fly. The original "Speedee-Bilt" kits were in one-piece two-color boxes. In the early 1950s, shortly before plastic kits were available, Monogram changed to the 'hardbox' with a lithographic slick glued to the top as this kit. Speedee-Bilt kits contained die cut and pre painted wooden parts, completely formed airfoil wings, carved wheels and numerous plastic details like cowlings, pilot, missiles, prop and more. Assembly was by detailed full size plans.

The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes 'excellent+' condition decals and instructions.
