  Plastic Model Kits

ESCI Saab JA-37 Viggen (Jaktviggen), 1/48, 4059

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$42   

Large scale Swedish multi-role fighter. Features detailed cockpit, optional position canopy and airbrakes, two Sidewinder and two SkyFlash missiles and 30 mm gun. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Revell Grumman F11F-1 Tiger - 'S' Issue - (F11F F11F1), 1/55, H249-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

$89   

Original issue 'S' kit from 1956. Box has excellent color and gloss. The kit has never been started. 100% inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions present.

Encore Revolutionary War Cannon - (ex-Palmer / Life-Like), 1/24, EC9691

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$24   

Reissue from original Palmer (then Life-Like) molds. Encore did a superb job of cleaning up the molds, as this looks better than the original issue and reissues ever did. Kit features moving barrel, tool chest and moving wheels. Molded in gray. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag including instructions.

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.

Varney US Navy Fleet Submarine, 1/240

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$1100   

This model is a landmark in the history of Plastic Kits. The Varney Fleet Sub is the primary candidate for the first all-plastic ship kit made in the USA. The famous HO/O train manufacture, Varney, branched out into other scale model kits at the end of WWII. In late 1945, they introduced what are thought to be the first USA produced plastic model kits - the Fleet Sub and the PT-17 Stearman. Both kits were excellent scale models given the state of modeling at that time. However, Varney was 6 years too early. The Fleet Sub and PT-17 met a cool reception when it was introduced to retailers. Hobby Shops were not sure if it would sell, and did not know how to sell it. Consequently, most retailers would not order it and those who did put them where they were not seen by the public. Distributors stopped carry the kits due to a lack of reporders. The result was inevitable - they did not sell, and Varney pulled both kits from production very quickly. Varney was committed to cutting the molds on the LST and it was released in 1946 with the same result. That marked the end of Varney's venture into non-train scale plastic models. Varney dedicated all production to HO trains and in the late 1940s they sold the molds for the Fleet Sub, the LST and the PT-17 to O-Lin. The molds underwent modification (the hull was divided into two parts instead of one) and were released by O-Lin and Lindberg. This kit is a superb, investment-grade "excellent++" example. The box top has like-new color and gloss, four solid corners with no repairs, no tape or price tags, no marks from tape or tags and no tears or other litho damage. Flaws include very light and even edge wear (as shown), very slight 'dishing' inward and very light foxing on two box sides. Inside, the kit is still as it came from the factory. The yellow parts display is 'very good++' and the only flaw is the scuffing as shown. The small parts bag is still factory sealed and factory stapled to the yellow display. The glass display stand arm is tucked into its holder. The heavy one-piece molded hull is beautiful and in rare crack-free condition and cradled into the holder. The base was factory glued to the yellow display but has come loose. It also includes the unused factory tube of Testors cement in its own holder. Very large instruction sheet is near mint and folds out to illustrate construction and offers numerous display ideas for this new medium in hobby kits. Decals were not provided with the kit. This kit was made with gray injection molded details, glass stand arm and black injection molded stand and sub hull. I have seen versions with no paint on the base and hull; however, this one has the base and hull factory painted gray. The paint is in 'near mint' condition on the hull and 'excellent' on the stand base. A rare example of a classic kit. Shipped with insurance only.

Italeri Sukhoi Su-34 / 32, 1/72, 059

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$34   

Still factory sealed.

Italeri Waco CG-4A Assault Glider or British Hadrian D-Day Invasion Glider, 1/72, 118

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$38   

Still factory sealed. Same as the Testors kit as Italeri made and owns the molds. The Waco CG-4 was designed and initially built by Waco Aircraft Company of Troy, OH. It first saw action in Sicily and the operation was termed a disaster. This likely had more to do with planning than the actual glider. Missions in Europe, including D-Day, went much better. The glider was even deployed to Burma. It could carry up to 13 troops, or a jeep and four men, or a 75mm Field Gun.
