Monogram Superkit Russian Mig-15 Jet Fighter, 1/60, T4

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++


Rare plastic and pre-carved wood kit in fantastic overall condition. Before there were injection molded plastic kits, model builders worked in wood or metal. Advanced companies, like Monogram, saw the advantage of plastic and began marketing kits with plastic details and fully-carved fuselage, wings, etc. This beautiful kit is one the highest quality composite static kits from the early to mid 1950s. Inside, the kit is as it left the factory with the small plastic parts still in the factory sealed 'crinkle' bag, unpunched factory painted balsa parts, finished balsa fuselage and wings, white acetate stand, clear windshield, sandpaper, instructions and decals. Never started and all non-factory bagged parts have been inventoried compete.

Monogram Curtiss SB2C Helldiver - Four Star Issue, 1/48, PA69-149

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM


First issue 'Four Star Kit' with 1961 copyright on the hardbox. This box was factory sealed until very recently when the seal simply disintegrated. As a result, the box is in factory-new 'near mint' condition with perfect color and gloss, four solid corners, no repairs and no tape or tags. Very light handling wear is the only flaw. Has many action features: Folding wings, retractable landing gear, bomb bay opens and bomb drops (after swinging clear of the prop!), rear guns can be stowed or elevated, canopies open and close and the wheels and prop rotate. The inside is as nice as the outside. Parts, instructions, decals and small Monogram catalog are mint. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
