Cleveland Senior Albatross Glider With 10 Foot Wingspan, E-22

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$179   

Very rare in this condition and still in the original box. Giant glider designed for R/C or free-flight operation. Cleveland originally issued this kit in the 1940s and this is the final iteration dated 1959. There are R/C suggestions in the instructions but the hardware layout is up to you. The kit has never been started and is as it left the factory - I was the first one to go through it. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and plans. The plans are 'excellent' with some yellowing on the exposed panels and only several spots of very light and small bug damage. Although this is the original box, the Cleveland label is on one short side is torn.

Lindberg US Fleet Submarine (ex-Varney), 1/240, 703-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$59   

NOTE: builder kit only, has been neatly started! Please read carefully to the end for details. Rare kit with a fascinating history. These molds are believed to be the oldest production plastic ship model in US modeling history. The kit started as the Varney Fleet Sub in the mid 1940s. It is widely regarded as the very first USA all-plastic construction kit of a military vessel. Varney produced an all plastic aircraft kit at the same time, the PT-17. It is the #1 candidate for the first plastic airplane kit in the USA. Varney was a famous manufacture of model trains, first O then a leader in HO models. The two new additions did not sell very well - remember, the Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' had yet to be issued, so the boom in modeling had not occurred. Varney soon sold the molds for the Fleet Sub and the PT-17 to O-Lin (along with the molds for a fantastic multi-media kit with a wooden hull and plastic fittings, the Varney PT Boat ). O-Lin was a joint venture by Paul Lindberg and Mr. Olsen. O-Lin successfully issued the PT Boat (the PT Boat was given an injection molded hull and deck), PT-17 Stearman and Fleet Sub but modified the molds for the Sub. The original Varney kit had a solid, one-piece black hull and gray fittings. O-Lin engineers created a two-piece hull that provided a hollow hull and made from the same shot of plastic as the fittings. The 'Lin' in O-Lin, Paul Lindberg, was already well known for his publication of articles and plans for flying model aircraft in some of the leading aviation publications in the 1940/50s. Mr. Lindberg soon bought out Mr. Olsen and began marketing the same O-Lin kits under 'The Lindberg Line.' One immediate change was the box art. O-Lin box art was usually two or three color and not very exciting. Near the end of O-Lin, the partners asked Ray Gaedke to provide some box art. The bright colors and vivid action were an immediate hit, and Paul Lindberg took this lesson and Mr. Gaedke's artwork along to the new 'Lindberg Line.' Lindberg continue to issue the old Varney kits with the O-Lin modifications. The kit has been issued by a resurgent Lindberg as late at 2009, likely making it the longest running plastic ship kit in US history. This model is in superb investment-grade condition. The Ray Gaedke box art has perfect color and gloss, four solid corners, no fading, tears or price tags or tag marks or rips. The box grades 'excellent+++' and has only a few light scuffs, edge and corner marks and two short pieces of clear tape on the two long sides. The model has not been started. NOTE: this kit has neat assembly. The stand supports, hull halves, deck and several small fittings have been assembled to 'professional' quality. There is no other assembly and zero painting. The kit has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, 'excellent' decals and 'excellent' instructions.

Lindberg Nautilus Atomic Submarine by Paul Lindberg, 704

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$95   

Rare first issue hardbox with script Lindberg logo. In the 1930s, Paul Lindberg was designing, building and flying stick and tissue aircraft like so many other men and boys of the time. His plans appear in Popular Aviation magazine and he made a good name for himself. When injection molding showed the way to increased kits sales in the late 1940s/early 1950s, he quickly teamed up with Mr. Olsen to create 'O-lin' models. Ray Gaedke was one the early artists for O-lin. In the early 1950s Paul Lindberg had control and had his name as the logo. The first logo is the one on this kit - 'Lindberg' in script with 'Products' arched across the top and 'Incorporated' arched across the bottom to create a broken circle around the script. Ray Gaedke continued his bold and colorful artwork for Lindberg, such as the box painting for the Nautilus here. The Nautilus appears to be the first sea vessel that Lindberg cut it's own molds for - the Chris Craft Express Cruiser, PT Boat, LST and Fleet Submarine (Ex-Varney) were done by O-lin. The model is an interesting work of fact and fiction - it includes a deck gun and what looks like a Regulus II missile for the deck! The scale is not known but it measures about 12 inches long when assembled. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

On February 7, RO-55 attempted to attack a convoy os hips headed for Leyte Gulf where she was probably sunk by USS THOMASON (DE 203). in a hedge-hog attack just before midnight.

Doyusha I-171 Japanese Submarine - Motorized, 1/400, 1-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$48   

Older kit that is designed to operate in water. Measures 10 inches long when assembled. Features a metal weight to achieve neutral buoyancy, movable diving planes and a rubber band motor with winding handle. The kit is molded in dark brown/gray (above the waterline) and dark red (below the waterline). Includes a static display stand also. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. No decals are shown on the instructions, so I believe that Doyusha did not issue this kit with decals. I-171 lead a very active career from Pearl Harbor, Midway and beyond. She was diverted to supply duty and was depth charged and sunk on one such mission by DD-472 USS Guest and DD-475 USS Hudson, 1 February 1944, off Buka Island.
