Vintage plastic models galore at our October Oak Creek sale!

10 October 2010

Models, models everywhere….of the buildable plastic variety.  We have over 500 vintage models from the 1950s-1970s at our Oak Creek sale 10/9 & 10/10.  Lots of airplanes and cars, all unbuilt in their boxes.  The gentleman who collected them was a director of a chapter of the International Plastic Modelers Society in the 1970s, so in addition to the models, there’s also a lot of club newsletters from that period, modeler’s magazines, convention info, a ton of model catalogs and other related things.

The collector was also an aircraft crew chief in WWII, so there are some vintage photo collections from that period, Army Air Force ephemera, a couple of fighter manuals, and also a lot of later Air Force Publications books on aircraft and a ton of books and magazines on aircraft in general.

Throughout the house we have huge amounts of interesting collectibles and antiques, vintage clothing, kitchenware, cookbooks and more.  It is a very packed house!
