Quality Craft Models 89 Foot Southern Pacific Vert-A-Pac Car - HO Craftsman Kit, 1/87, S-7

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$20   

Excellent kit that builds a detailed duplicate of the prototype. Features hardwood parts that are completely cut and milled to shape, numerous cast metal accessories, detailed instructions and plans and very complete decals. The kit has never been started. The small fittings are still in the factory sealed bag. The parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions. Long after manufacturers turned to plastic ready-to-run rolling stock, Quality Craft continued to produce high quality models you could build. Headquartered in Northumerland, PA, they gave the craftsman an opportunity to build a state-of-art kit and show their skill.

Aurora Curtiss Hawk P-6E Sealed, 1/43, 116-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$110   

Still factory sealed. The kit is dated 1958, but this is obviously a later issue as the Aurora logo does not say 'Famous Fighters' in the border and has no sunburst - due to the 130 price extension, it is most likely from 1961 or '62.

Aurora Lockheed P-38 Lightning, 1/48, 99-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$125   

1959 issue with 'Famous Fighters' in the sunburst oval and dramatic Jo Kotula artwork. The box is in investment-grade 'near mint' condition with factory-fresh color and gloss, four solid corners, no tape, tape marks, price tags or tag marks, no fading and no litho loss. The only flaw is very light corner wear at the lower left. Molded in dark olive drab and clear with the famous Aurora 'Triangle Globe' clear base. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions and even the original tissue paper. The truly remarkable thing is that the decals are flat and in mint condition with absolutely no yellowing. The instructions are almost mint and have only the slightest yellowing - they are by far the 'whitest' copy I have ever seen.

Athearn 40' AAR Steel Box Car Great Northern - HO Craftsman Kit with Sprung Metal Trucks, 1/87

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$42   

Very high quality wood and metal kit from the Golden Age of HO Craftsman kits. Builds a very accurate and highly detailed prototype. Of the early metal box car kits, these are my favorites. Their popularity is 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 that is factory painted, decorated and lettered, steel car ends, doors and roof, steel ladders, door guides and brake platform, cast metal roof walk, bolsters, coupler pockets and three piece brake detail, stamped metal undercarriage beam with fine cross bearers, corner steps, grab irons and more. Includes real sprung trucks. The factory paint is 'excellent' with only light storage wear and I have packed them in the original factory wax paper sleeve and put them inside the instructions so it will not be damaged in shipment. 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.
