Aurora Eastern Airlines DC-9 Medium Distance Commercial Jet, 1/72, 357-250

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

$169   

Still factory sealed. 1966 early issue with Eastern decals. This is still the only injection molded 1/72 scale DC-9 ever produced. The kit is molded in white plastic and includes the clear triangle Aurora 'Globe' stand and stand arm. Please NOTE that the seal has several tiny splits and wear. Someone cut the '250' off the part number - retailers often did this so that they could sell the kit for more, especially out west. While this is a very nice example, the wear to the seal and the missing part numbers on the box make this kit far from 'mint' condition.

Renwal Aeroskin Antoinette 1908 Monoplane and Voisin Farman 1908 Biplane - 2 for 1 Fabulous Flying Machines, 1/72, 212-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$125   

Still factory sealed. Hard to find. Early issue from the late 1950s/early 1960s. Kit includes both models. The Antoinette was the first plane in the world to attain an altitude of 500 feet, and the Voisin made the first city-to-city powered flight. These are unique and accurate kits. The original internal frame structure and details of the aircraft is built from injection molded plastic. When complete, it is covered with a very strong fabric which is included. The result is a very realistic aircraft.

Aurora Northrop P-61 Black Widow, 1/48, 392-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$179   

Still mint in the factory seal. Hardbox issue dated 1960 - however, this issue lacks the 'Famous Fighters' in the oval logo boarder and has a 198 price extension, so it likely from 1961. Large 1/48 scale kit. This has to be some of Jo Kotula most fantastic artwork - the P-61 patrols over a South Pacific island base at night, destroying an intruder (or defender?).

Aurora Convair 880 SuperJet TWA, 1/103, 384-250

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$225   

Still factory sealed. Dated 1961. The Convair 880 and it's near sister 990 were very high performance airliners. Unfortunately they did not find favor with commercial operators. Only 65 880s were produced from 1959 to 1962. The aircraft was designed to be smaller and faster than the DC-8 and 707 - this market did not develop, however, and if it did it could have been served with less expensive designs. The 990 was a larger and faster (mach .91) airliner, but it failed to meet it's range criteria for east to west crossings of the USA. As a result, only 37 were made. Interestingly enough, several 990s continued to be operated by private owners and NASA operated two 990s for decades after the last 990 was phased out of commercial service.

Berkeley The Buccaneer 48 - For R/C or Free Flight

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$225   

Older Berkeley kit of one of the classics in early gas free-flight. The box claims this is 'America's First Gasoline Model Airplane Construction Kit'. It certainly was not the first gasoline powered model to fly, but it very may well have been the first marketed kit. The large Buccaneer was designed for class A and B gas engines. Kit features printed wooden parts, semi-finished wooden blocks, formed landing gear, silkspan covering, full size detailed plans and streamline wheels. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Berkeley is a very famous manufacturer of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.
