Aurora F6F Hellcat, 1/49, 40-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$129   

1960 issue; please note the oval logo with 'Famous Fighters' in the border and the 'Northern Lights' in the center behind the Aurora name. Molded in a stunning dark gloss blue and clear. This issue has the clear two-piece triangle-base stand and also the 'Parents Magazine' seal on the box. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Box shows much better than the 'Very Good' grade, but is graded as such due to damage to .5 of an inch on the lower left side corner

Aurora Boeing B-29 Superfortress, 1/76, 372-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$175   

Rare 1960s issue retaining the same artwork as the 1956 issue. This is likely the 4th issue. I believe the 3rd issue is almost identical but has "Famous Fighters" in the oval logo. That would date this kit as 1963 and up till the 'Big A' box issue. Note the square 'Northern Lights' logo has been replaced with the Aurora sunburst oval logo. This kit has arguably the most dramatic and fanciful B-29 artwork from the 'Golden Era' of modeling. The box is in excellent condition. There are no split corner and no repairs. Responding to market information that boys wanted larger kits, Aurora introduced the B-26 followed by the B-29 and B-25, all of which sold well for many years. Missing stand. Never started. Otherwise complete with all parts, decals 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.
