Merlin Models deHavilland Vampire T.11 Two Seater, 1/72, 17

Limited run kit with metal detail parts and decals. Nicely molded with recessed panel lines. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Matchbox Dornier Do-18 G-1 / V-2 / D-2 Civil or Military - Luftwaffe Calais-based 3/KuFlGr 406 (1940) or 2/KuFlGr 506 Kiel 1938 or Civil D-AANE 'Zyklon' Lufthansa South Atlantic Mail Service (1938), 1/72, 40409

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG+

$48   

Still factory sealed with the 'round tape.' Dated 1992 and from original molds. Nicely detailed kit for that time with optional parts for all three versions and a paint guide and markings for the three aircraft listed. Lufthansa was a pioneer in trans-oceanic mail services and the Do-15 and Do-18 grew to fit this need. Given the German interests in South America, it was no surprise that they established one of the first airmail services between Europe and that continent. This kit will build one of those aircraft, the Lufthansa South Atlantic Mail Aircraft (1938) D-AANE 'Zyklon' or the military version. The Do-18 was an improved D0-15 'Wal' and set several records during it's long useful life.

Aurora Lockheed F-90 Fighter, 1/48, 33-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$155   

Rare 1/48 scale kit. Hardbox is dated 1958, but the logo tells us that this is a very late 1950 to early 1960s issue since there is no 'Famous Fighters' in the oval logo. The factory put a tiny '100' circle sticker over the '98' in the part number. This issue has the correct triangle two-piece clear base as well as full landing gear and rockets. Molded in silver and clear. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Decals and instructions are both 'excellent' with slight yellowing as the only real flaws. This is reissue of one of Aurora's first two kits (F-90 and F9F) which were copies of the Hawk molds.

Zvezda Russian Battleship Borodino, 1/350, 9027

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$36   

From modern molds. Full hull model is very nicely molded and detailed with 356 parts. Never started and has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Borodino was the lead ship of a class of pre-dreadnought battleships built for the Imperial Russian Navy. She was finished after the start of the Russo-Japanese war in 1904. After completion she was sent with a squadron from Libau to break the Japanese blockade of Port Arthur, but while in transit the Japanese occupied the port. The Second Pacific Squadron sailed instead to Vladivostok, the last Russian port in the far east. After a very long voyage and numerous delays, the Japanese certainly knew they were coming and set up for battle to cut the Russians off at Tsushima Strait. Borodino saw action at Tsushima early on. After taking serious damage, the Russians were not interested in further battle and around 1700 they turned away from Japanese cruisers- but ran into the Japanese battleships again. 10 minutes later Togo ordered his ship to cease fire and disengage; the battleship Fuji had already loaded her 12" guns and fired them before the turn away. One of these shells hit Borodino under her starboard 6 inch turret, which started a fire in the ready ammunition that quickly spread to a 6" magazine. This caused a chain reaction and massive magazine explosions. Only one man survived from a crew of 855.
