Sanwa Mitsubishi J2M3 Raiden 'Jack', 1/89, 123

Berkeley 3 Flying Model Jetex Missiles / Regulus II / Bomarc / X-16 Two Stage - PSST 50 Jet Rocket Engine, GMM 1 295

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


Very rare and from the 1950s. Includes factory pre-fabricated and painted wooden Regulus II (17.5 inches long), Bomarc (17.5" long) and X-16 Two-Part 'Man in Space' concept rocket (28.5" long if placed end-to-end) as well as the metal 'PSST 50' rocket engine which essentially a Jetex engine. There is a high degree of prefabrication. The factory glued the rudders into place and all you do is slide a few parts into place, put the jet engine into the already-attached metal engine holder and you are ready to fly! Can also be run on CO2 power or rubber band catapult launched. The kit has never been started. The missiles are inventoried complete and still in place on the factory display cardboard. The jet engine is present and has never been used. There is one wooden dowel for catapult rubber band launch and full instructions including trimming and flying tips. NOTE: some parts were factory taped together; that tape has naturally fallen off and is gone. Two balsa parts have breaks, but both broken parts are present and fit back together perfectly for an easy fix. Thanks to Dale Rhodes, there is a reference to this kit in 1958. So far that is the earliest known print add.

Hawk T-6 Texan Trainer 'Picture Gallery' Issue, 1/72, 610-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++


1950s hard-to-find hardbox 'Picture Gallery' issue with unique artwork. Very nicely molded in silver plastic with a clear green-tinted windshield and instructions and decals that are correct for this early release. The kit has never been started.

Hawk Supermarine Swift K-4 - One Piece Box Issue, 1/72, 607

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++


Rare one-piece 'flip top' box issue from the late 1940s/early 1950s. Very cleanly molded kit that builds very nicely. Molded in the correct gloss silver with green-tinted clear canopy. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. The Swift was a very early jet fighter to replace the Supermarine Attacker. A very capable aircraft, the Swift suffered numerous accidents early on. As a result, less than 200 were ever built and it did not see combat. It did hold a world speed record for a short time, only to have a Douglas Skyray take the record a few hours later. The problems were ironed out, but by then the Hawker Hunter was proving very capable and there was no need for the Swift and it's RAF service life was short. The most successful version was the PR variant.

Life-Like Civil War Blockade Runner (Cutter 'Lavinia') - (Ex-Pyro), 1/124, 09362

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good+


Still factory sealed. Very early Life-Like issue after Pyro sold out all plastic model molds and remaining stock. Actually, this is a Pyro box with 'Life-Like' stickers neatly placed over the Pyro logo and part number on the top and all four sides. After the initial issue, Pyro re-marketed the Harriett Lane as the "Lavinia," which was what the Confederates renamed her when she was captured and made her a blockage runner. Very nicely molded full hull kit. Usually molded in white, black, light wood tan and green (hull) (cannot confirm, it is sealed). Includes full rigging diagrams. The Harriett Lane was built in 1858 and named for President Buchanan's niece. The cutter was 180 feet long with a 30 foot beam and displacement was 670 tons. Armament consisted of 3-9 inch Dahlgrens and 1-30 lb Parrot Rifle. She was built at a time when steam was not fool-proof, so she is rigged for full sails. Harriett Lane served as the Presidential Yacht, the fired the first shot of the Civil War. She chased down blockade runners until January 1, 1863 when she was attacked by five Confederate Gun Boats and boarded. She was captured and renamed the Lavinia and was used as a blockade runner. Near the end of the war she caught fire at sea, and put into Havana Harbor. Federal forces took her again and rebuilt her in 1869 as the bark 'Elliot Ritchie'. She was abandoned at sea in 1884.

Revell Boeing B-29 Superfortress Bomber - 'Dauntless Dotty', 1/315, H159

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+


Dated 1973 and from original 1950s "Pre-S" kit molds. Excellent builder and possibly the second-to-the-last issue for this kit.

The kit box is 100% intact but is graded 'Fair+' because of the creasing shown and tape & tape tears on the side panels.
