Aurora 1920 Monroe Special Indianapolis 500 Winner - Kit and Built-Up, 1/30, 521-79
Aurora 1920 Monroe Special Indianapolis 500 Winner - Kit and Built-Up, 1/30, 521-79
Exc++   Injection Molded   old
$135

Very rare. Includes a boxed kit and a partial built up. The kit is from ex-Best molds. Aurora purchased the Best molds for the Indianapolis 500 Winners and made one issue in 1958. Kit is molded in gloss blue with real rubber tires, spoke wheels and includes a crew of two and some interior detail. NOTE: the kit has been started. Someone assembled the sub-frames to the body and the steering wheel to the dash. However, they used Elmer's white glue, so the parts simply fell off. The remaining glue easily popped off the parts, leaving them with only slight to no wear. NOTE: includes all car parts and instructions but the top section of the brake handle and the decals are both missing. The front axle is missing one short end (that the wheel slides over), which can be replaced with a stock cylindrical part. The partial built up model is missing one rear brake drum and the steering wheel - other than that, it looks to be complete. Quality of assembly and paint is very good, and it is painted the correct green color with a red nose.

Gowland & Gowland Santa Maria Shipyard Ships in Miniature
Gowland & Gowland Santa Maria Shipyard Ships in Miniature
Exc+   Injection Molded   old
$29

Rare, early, small scale ship kit from 1952. Very nicely detailed and molded, especially for that era. Includes sails, molded sea display base and clear sheet plastic with the delicately printed ratlines. The scale is not given, but the sea base measures 6.5"x2" and the ship is approximately 5 inches long. Includes beautiful color instructions with the ship history, illustrations of assembly, how to set the sails and photos for rigging. This kit has never been started and is still in the original 'krinkle' bag. The bag has typical splitting, so it has been placed inside a zip-lock bag so that no parts will be lost. Includes instructions. The box sides illustrates and names the 10 kits of this line. All were available in regular (such as this kit) or 'Ship In A Bottle' versions. the 'Bottle' was also available separately. The entire set consists of the Santa Maria 1492, Golden Hind 1588, Mayflower 1620, Bon Homme Richard 1779, SS Savannah 1819, The Flying Cloud 1849, Charles W. Morgan 1850, Gertrude L. Thebaud 1929, Frigate Constitution 1797 and US Revenue cutter 1849. It appears that Gowland & Gowland has not received the credit that it deserves in the plastic kit revolution that took America by storm in the early 1950s. Gowland developed the first all plastic car made in the USA in 1950, the 1911 Maxwell. Even more interesting is that Kevin and Jack Gowland developed the 'Highway Pioneers' in 1951 which heralded the future for the American Hobby Industry. The reason that Gowland's name is not in the fore-front of model history is that Precision Specialties (later Revell) did the distribution for Gowland.

Good++   Metal   old
$42

Very high quality wood and metal kit from the Golden Age of HO Craftsman kit. Builds a very accurate and highly detailed prototype. Of the early metal box car kits, these are my favorites, with their popularity witnessed by the various reissues through the years. Almost all the parts that are metal on the actual box car are metal on the model. This and the factory paint, lettering and decoration makes these kits difficult to beat for scale appearance. Features stamped steel body, car ends and roof that are factory painted, lettered and decorated, steel ladders, doors, door guides and brake platform, cast metal running boards, bolsters, coupler pockets and three piece brake detail, stamped metal undercarriage beam with fine cross bearers, corner steps, grab irons and more. Includes trucks. The factory paint is excellent, and I have packed it so it will not be damaged in shipment. Due to the high degree of factory finishing, the only painting required for this kit is the interior floor and underside. The kit has never been started. The small parts are still in factory sealed envelopes and all other parts have been inventoried complete including instructions.

Aurora Piper Apache, 1/64, 280-29
Aurora Piper Apache, 1/64, 280-29
VG   Injection Molded   old
$95

1963 issue and still the only injection molded Apache kit. From ex-Comet molds. Features all recessed panel lines, clear windows, rotating propellers and color decals. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Aurora had started a line of inexpensive 29 cent kits in about 1957. The line was a success, and it was expanded. The line grew again when Aurora purchased the Comet molds, as most of Comet's line was very small scale kits, many of them civil aircraft like this one. It appears that Aurora was encouraged by the sale of the ex-Comet civil aircraft, as it expanded the line with it's own molds in the early 1960s.

'Master' issue in the agreed museum scale of 1/16. 33 3/4 inch wingspan. Idea for conversion to electric power and RC. Very highly detailed and complete kit for it's time. Features high quality printwood, stripwood, center drilled nacelle blocks, all other blocks as required, spars, clear window material, very large and highly detailed full size plans and more. Please note this is the wartime issue and does not have paint bottles. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. The Cleveland Model and Supply Company played a pivotal role in the development of true scale models. In 1909 Bleriot’s English Channel flight caused a surge in aviation and model aircraft around the globe. Several companies were ideally positioned to take advantage of the aviation craze. In the USA, Wading River Manufacturing Co. (1909), White Aeroplane (1911), Ideal Model Aeroplane (1911), Broadfield Model Aeroplanes (1919) were among these pioneers, offering everything from plans and parts to complete kits and ARF models. Lindbergh’s 1927 crossing of the Atlantic Ocean caused an even bigger world-wide phenomenon called “The Aviation Craze” that extended up to the start of World War II. Many companies such as Megow, Guillow's and others started right around the time of Lindbergh’s flight. Some of these models flew and flew well, but they all had one thing in common - were generally not accurate scale representations. In 1929, a youngster named Ed Packard had a very advanced dream – to produce incredibly accurate, true scale models that flew perfectly. This radical idea established the world’s longest operating single-owner model airplane supply business – Cleveland Model and Supply Company. To this day, Cleveland models are treasured as the most accurate flying scale models produced. The fact that Mr. Packard started and successfully grew this business during The Great Depression is a testament to his ideals and business skill. I highly suggest the excellent book called ‘Aviation’s great Recruiter – Cleveland’s Ed Packard’ by H.L. (Herm) Schreiner. It is an excellent history of the man, his company and the times of the Golden Age of Model Aviation.
