Aurora The Wanderer Whaler, 1/87, 440-595

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+

Sold   

Rare 1966 hardbox issue of this very large, two feet long (1/87 scale) classic commercial whaler model. Well detailed for that time. This kit was one of a series of large-scale sailing ships made by Aurora to appeal to the serious ship modeler. Molded in correct dark wood, black, tan, ivory and white. Features billowing sails, metal anchor chains, running and standing rigging, molded ratlines and display stand. It has not been started. The parts that were factory sealed are all still factory sealed. Only the white sail parts were never factory sealed, and they have been inventoried complete. Includes all other parts, decals, flag sheet, metal chain, rigging thread and instructions. The Wanderer was built in Mattapoiset, MA in 1878 and was the last sailing whaleship to depart the US on a whaling voyage. She sailed from New Bedford on 24 August 1924 and was driven ashore on Cuttyhunk Island by a gale the next day and became a total loss. (from Joe Greenley)

Renwal M65 280mm Atomic Cannon with M249 and M250 50 Ton Heavy Gun Lifting Truck/Transporters, 1/32, 553-498

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Hard-to-find Renwal first issue of this very desirable kit- not the common Revell reissue. The box top says 'Fully Operating Model Does Everything But Fire' and it is true. The model consists of over 300 parts and has many action features typical of Renwal models. The wheels roll, tractors can be hooked to the cannon which can be stowed in the 'travel' position. The gun can move into the 'fire' position off the tractors and can be trained realistically. It is molded in olive drab plastic and the inner factory cardboard divider is present. The kit has never been started. All bags but one are still factory sealed. The "A" transport generic parts bag was split, so I opened it and did an inventory - it is complete. The few big parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete. All inspection slips are present also as well as a smaller-format Renwal kit catalog. Decals are in remarkable 'excellent' condition with the typical yellowing and some light creases as the only flaws. The instructions are also 'excellent' with one closed fold split as the only real flaw. This early issue has the main gun barrel factory built and painted; the paint is in 'excellent' condition with only a few scuffs. The box displays much better than the 'good-' grade. But I graded it as such because there are three closed-split corners (two with clear tape on them), other smaller closed splits at two corners, edge wear and general light wear. The lower box tray has a long closed split along one edge.

The small parts and decals are still in the factory sealed bag. All other parts have been inventoried complete with the instructions. Chrome is 'excellent.'

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good

Sold   

Still factory sealed but has damage as shown. 1999 reissue of the 1964 Revell kit with a Monogram box. Very nicely detailed 1/48 scale kit that contains both models and display stands as well as collector's patches. This kit is a fine example of 'mold swapping'. Originally Revell cut the molds and issued this kit in the 1960s. Then Revell and Monogram merged, and the kit was reissued under the Monogram name.
