Aurora Sopwith Camel, 1/48, 102-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$49   

Still factory sealed. This is the 4th known issue of this classic kit, and the second one to share the 102-100 kit number. The blue oval logo dates from the early 1960s.

The series began in 1956 and Aurora added new kits into the early 1960s. The line proved incredibly popular, so these kits were included in the 'mold upgrade' in the 1970s before Aurora went out of business.

Monogram Little Air Force Assortment Gift Set - Speedee-Bilt F-51 (P-51) / F6F and Superkit F-51 and F-84

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$950   

Very rare 1950s "pre-injection molded" gift set. Long before injection molded kit were made in the USA, Monogram produced perhaps the finest pre-fabricated wooden kits with plastic details. The Speedee-Bilt series were flying models with pre-painted and cut wooden parts with plastic props, cowls, pilots, etc. The Superkits were smaller static models with precarved wooden parts and many plastic details. The kits themselves are rare today, but the gift set is very rare. Monogram issued very few gift sets for injection kits, and even fewer in the early 1950s for the wooden kits. The gift set consists of a special 'Christmas' box with a tray and lift-off top with a cello window. This one contains 2 Superkits (F-84 Thunderjet and F-51 Mustang) and 2 Speedee-Bilts (the F6F Hellcat and F-51 Mustang). The outer box is near mint and in investment grade condition - which is amazing considering the age of the set. Even the original cut-out add for MonoDope and MonoGlue is present. The four kits are in mint boxes and have never started. Each is 100% inventoried complete with all parts/decals and instructions present.

Heller Strasbourg Battlecruiser, 1/400, L1030

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$285   

Still factory sealed. Rare. The Dunkerque-class Battlecruisers were the French response to the German Graf Spee-class and the fast and well-armed Italian ships at the time. If the 1900 to 1930 span of French shipbuilding could be defined as lacking a clear vision or plan, the Strasbourg and her sister decisively ended that period. The products of superior design and engineering, the two sisters would re-define fast capital ships as would their near-sisters Battleships Richelieu and Jean Bart after them. But world events would conspire against these beautiful ships and there visibility in naval history. The Strasbourg was begun in 1934 at St. Nazire, launched in 1936 and put into service in 1939. She never navigated in peacetime. Displacement was 26,500 ton and top speed was 30 knots. Main armament was (8) 330mm guns and (16) 130 mm dual purpose. The main and secondary guns were mounted in the first quadruple turrets. Both main 330 mm turrets faced forward so that all main guns could fire when the enemy was sighted or in pursuit. Her superior speed would allow her to escape anything that she could not out-gun. Like most ships of the day she featured the 'All-Or-Nothing' armor design or 'armored box'. The compact design and placement of the main and secondary armament allowed unusually high armor protection for a battlecruiser. Serious consideration was also given to underwater protection, and the ships had a unique and effective (as events would prove) anti-mine/torpedo system with a novel water-exclusive material. At Mers-El-Kebir, her sistership Dunkerque was pinned at the pier. In an unlucky set of events, a ship moored next to her was sunk along with it's load of depth-charges. Later, a torpedo set off the huge explosive cargo. The damage to Dunkerque was immense. Other ships would have sunk, but she did not. Strasbourg was the only capital ship to get underway during the disaster at Mers-El-Kebir. Her superior speed allowed her to escape while two other French Battleships were sunk. She fled to Toulon, where she was eventually joined by the hastily repaired Dunkerque. However, when the Germans threatened to seize the ships, the entire fleet including the two sisters was scuttled in the harbor. The Italians raised the Strasbourg and stripped her of her guns; but she was bombed and sunk by Allied aircraft. In 1945 she was raised again, but salvage was beyond hope. In 1955 she was sold for scrap.

Frog HS Buccaneer S.Mk 2A / S.Mk 50 - RAF or South African Airforce, 1/72, F238

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$34   

Still factory sealed. Has decals for both Air Forces, No.12 Sq RAF Honington, 1970 and No. 24 Sq SAAF Waterkfloof, 1970. Typical high quality Frog kit with no rivets and fine panel lines for a realistic model. Features steering nose strut, four anti-ship missiles on wing pylons and optional position landing gear. The Buccaneer was the world's first purpose designed low level 'below the radar' bomber. Low level strike aircraft have a shorter airframe life limit due to the stresses of low level flying, so the Buccaneer was designed to be very strong and even had many sub-assemblies milled from solid metal. Kit features opening unique rotating bomb bay, folding wings and working arresting hook.
