Aurora Curtiss Warhawk P-40 Flying Tiger, 1/48, 44-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$75   

This issue is dated 1957 and has the 'Famous Fighters' sunburst logo and Jo Kotula box art, as well as the Parent's Magazine seal. This is the first issue with this new box art. Molded in gloss olive drab and clear and with the Aurora 'Globe' clear triangle stand. Never started and complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Aurora Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina, 1/74, 374-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$135   

First issue artwork from the early 1950s. Rare. Kit features retracting pontoons and rotating props. Includes correct early logo instructions which show the clear 'Triangle World' stand. That stand is correctly included. This must be one of the first instances of the 'Triangle' stand being used as it is normally associated with oval 'Famous Fighter' logo kits. Molded in gloss silver/gray and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: the back half of the pitot tube has broken off and is missing. Only the front part is present. It is interesting to note that the early Aurora PBY issue has at least three small variations to the box top. The very first issue says '1/4 SCALE MODEL' at the top right. Clearly, this kit is not 1/48 scale and someone corrected Aurora. Then the '1/4' was blotted out with a dark blue oval or cicle and '5/32' was added after the word 'SCALE.' it was now correct, but the appearance was not completely professional. On the next box order, they kept the '1/4' blotted out but added a proper looking 5/31" in front of the blot. That is this issue.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc-

$95   

1955 'S' issue. Very nice kit for that time in near 1/48 scale. Features very fine recessed and raised panel lines, detailed pilot figure and optional position cockpit door and a belly drop tank.

Richard Kishady did the famous painting for this kit and originally included German kill markings on the nose of the P-39.
