Lindberg Sea Raider (Q-Ship - Decoy Ship) (AK-101 USS ATIK), 1/390, 731-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$225   

Very rare hardbox issue from the late 1950s. Classic kit with Ray Gaedke artwork. This is the Lindberg Q Ship, which has an unknown prototype but is suppose to be a WWI style Q-Ship submarine trap. The ship appears to be a WWI British Q Ship by the title, yet looks a little modern and has US numbers of 171, which apparently mean nothing. The Lindberg model actually has the layout of the AK-101 USS ATIK, which was formerly the SS-CAROLYN, built in 1912. The CAROLYN was recommissioned as the USS ATIK and at the start of WWI which was a real US Q-ship. The box is in fantastic 'near mint' condition with like-new color and gloss, four solid corners and very little wear. This kit has never been started. It has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Airfix Martin RB-57E or B-57B Canberra, 1/72, 05018

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$28   

From original molds dating late 1970s/early 1980s. Contains optional parts to build the rare recon version or US B-57B bomber. Very nicely molded and detailed kit for that time with full decals and paint guide for both aircraft. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag including decals and instructions. The box cover aircraft is from 460/DET 1, a small but doubly-staffed unit that was directly subordinate in mission operations to 7th Air Force headquarters at Tan Son Nhut Air Base. Tan Son Nhut was part of the large combination air base and commercial international airport adjacent to the South Vietnamese capital of Saigon. RB-57E aircraft derived their nickname from their call-sign which was 'Patty Lynn.' There were only four aircraft assigned but each had two rotating air crews. Mission imagery (film) was processed by the 12th Reconnaissance Intelligence Technical Sq, which was also located at the 7th AF HQ complex. Nominally they were assigned to the Huge 460th Tactical Recon Wing, to which the 12th Tactical Recon Sq (RF-4Cs)was also assigned. (Thanks to John Barlow for the history!)
