Aurora Martin B-26D Marauder, 1/46, 371-259

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$155   

1961 issue of the popular kit. When Aurora moved to the West Hempstead plant, they planned a series of very large bombers. All kits released up to this time had been fairly small. Aurora's instincts were correct, and the B-26, B-25 and B-29 were a big sales success. The first issue box art was done by Jim Cox and was only used for about one year. This is the second issue box art and the more famous of the two. Note the 'Famous Fighters' in the oval Sunburst logo. Correctly molded in silver and clear and with the large, clear triangle base stand. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.

Monogram Peterbilt 359 Conventional Semi Tractor Truck, 1/16, 2500

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$159   

Rare and in excellent condition. Very large (1/16) truck from 1980. Very well detailed. This model builds up a rolling chassis just like the actual truck with complete engine, suspension, exhaust and drive line detail. Features detailed engine compartment, opening hood, 63 inch walk-in sleeper, complete interior with CB radio, Alcoa Alloy wheels, dual exhaust stacks, twin antennas, rotating 5th wheel, air horns and side mirrors, pinstripe decals, license plates and more. Molded in yellow, black, chrome, clear and with rubber tires. The kit has not been started. Most parts are still sealed in the factory bags. The parts that were not have been inventoried complete. Includes decals and instructions. Amazingly, I can only fine one tire burn on this kit and it is on the inside floor of the sleeper - it does not show! It is amazing that there are no other burns because this kit is infamous for them.

Jordon Products Mack Truck Chassis With Cab HO Scale, 1/87, C-211

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$12   

Still factory sealed. Very well detailed for this scale. Intended for HO layouts but are considered fine kits on their own. The back of many Jordan Highway Miniatures boxes reads "Purchaser Please Note: This is not a 'quickie' kit for kids. It is a highly detailed, authentically scaled craft-type kit, designed for modelers of HO Scale Railroads."

Precise McDonnell Douglas Spartan ABM

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$1275   

Very rare promotional model of the 'Safeguard' ABM Missile Spartan. The Sprint and Spartan pair made up the missiles of this Anti-Ballistic Missile system with Spartan handling the longer ranges. The system was made operational on October 1 1975 and Congress voted to shut it down less than 24 hours later on October 2 1975. Condition is exceptional. Missile is NM with a tiny chip out of one fin and very slight wear. The base is NM also. Missile measures 17 inches long. There are no touch ups/repair and no cracks. Decal is near mint also on base. Base says 'Spartan - McDonnell Douglas - McDonnell Douglas Astronautics Company'. Insurance required on shipping. NOTE: This model was issued with two bases. One had two pins to hold the missile. The other is the cradle pictured. This missile has the two pin holes - so it was either left over stock and put on the new base or found it's way to the newer base over the years.

Revell Lockheed Electra II Los Angeles Dodgers, 1/115

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$225   

SALE! Very rare. Special issue of the Dodgers Team Aircraft made by Revell just for the concessions dealer 'Danny Goodman' for the LA Dodgers, Inc. I purchased this kit along with the Revell factory shipping carton. This carton was originally sold to Union 76 Service Station #3459, located at 12080 Ventura Blvd in Studio City California. The case was shipped directly from Revell in Los Angeles to the Union Oil Station; the gas station owner's son confirmed this. (Somehow Danny Goodman was bypassed in the transaction!). The kit is fresh from the original shipping carton with no more wear than you would expect. The box is in investment grade 'near mint' condition with the only flaws being some yellowing and light wear on the paper label. Inside, the kit is factory new. All parts, decals and instructions are still sealed in the Revell factory bag. The kit includes a wonderful photo of the 1963 Dodgers - World's Champions!

AMT Chrysler Imperial Western Pickup Truck, 1/25, T148-150

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$169   

Very rare. I believe the base vehicle is a '65 Imperial and this was an Alexander Brothers custom job - but that is just conjecture. An excellent kit with full engine and compartment, opening hood, 'horseshoe' door handles and brake pedal, custom interior, optional top, branding iron or steer horns hood ornament and a large sheet of woodgrain and text decals (in 'new' condition). Also includes white wall stickers. Molded in white, clear, red-tinted clear, chrome plate and with rubber tires. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora Flying Sub Test Shot - Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (Seaview Submarine) Bagged, 1/60

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$275   

Very rare item for the advanced collector. This item was from the estate of Dave Cockrum, the world-famous Aurora box artist, sculpture and kit designer. However, he is even more famous for his long history with DC and Marvel Comics. When working at Aurora, Dave had access to 'The Room'. In it were test shots from almost every Aurora kit ever made; employees were welcome to come in and take a kit when they pleased. This Flying Sub came from that room. It is a rare test shot molded in the usual test shot color - white- and includes the clear parts. Although the kit is complete, it does not have a box or instructions like most all test shots.

Well detailed for that time with mixed fine recessed and raised panel lines, removable jet engine, full cockpit, opening canopy, missile/bomb/rocket pod load-out and optional position landing gear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and decals and instructions, both in 'excellent+' condition. Please read the two articles on this website about saving old decals before using any older kit decals.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Cleveland Bayles' 1931 Gee Bee Racer - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-17

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$175   

This is a Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. The kit came from a long time collector of 1930s and 1940s models and is in exceptional condition. All Cleveland kits were exceptionally complete and this one is no exception. Features very high quality balsa printwood and strip wood, covering material, highest quality plans, all parts required for assembly and decals (if issued with the kit). 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, called 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 'Aviations 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.
