Aurora British Spitfire, 1/43, 20A-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG-

$165   

Early issue from about 1954/55 with the rectangular 'Aurora Line' logo and 'Famous Fighters of All Nations.' Retains the Jim Cox box art from original issue. Molded in correct medium gloss blue and clear with clear rectangular stand. This is the issue (likely the first) with landing gear and bombs. The kit has never been started. All parts are still internally sealed in the very rare (for this date) Aurora 'krinkle' plastic bag. Includes decals and instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Early issue from the 1960s. Nicely detailed kit of one of the three ships that Columbus used on his exploration voyage. Large scale model features full hull, complete deck fittings, billowing vacuform sails and full rigging instructions. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes colorful flag sheet and instructions. The sails are in 'excellent' condition.

Hasegawa P-40N Warhawk - USAAF 80th Fighter Group 'Burma Banshees', 1/72, 1115

Aurora F8U-1 Crusader (F-8) - (F8U1), 1/48, 119-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$125   

Very rare first issue. This box art was only used for one year (or less) in 1957, then the more common 'ground' artwork was used till production ceased. Model has many interesting features including retracting landing gear, removable tail section and jet engine. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts in the correct high-gloss early issue light grey. Features the correct 1st issue instructions showing the early stand, large rectangular-based stand and decal sheet correctly lacking the stand decal.

Pyro Gulf Star Tuna Clipper, 1/58, B374-400

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$55   

Mid 1960s hardbox issue. Modeled from the two Tuna Clippers (sister ship is Sea Magic) of the Avondale Marine Ways Company of New Orleans. These hard-working boats and crews roamed the ocean year-around in a dangerous business. Many vanished without a trace. The Gulf Star was wreaked on a reef off Peru. Model has a hull length of 13.5 inches. Very nicely detailed kit for that time. Even includes rigging material and rigging instructions. NOTE: kit has minor and neat assembly; hull halves are assembled. Quality of assembly is 'professional' (no gaps, no glue on the outside portion and great alignment). There is no other assembly and zero painting. Many parts are still in the factory sealed bags; the parts not sealed have been inventoried complete. Includes instructions.

Life-Like Robert E. Lee Mississippi Steam Boat - (ex-Pyro), 1/160, B237-800

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$125   

1970 issue from original Pyro molds. Very large and well detailed kit for that time. The race between the Lee and Natchez is considered a classic tale of The River. Although the Lee won, the circumstances were suspect and many people still considered the Natchez the fastest paddle-wheel packet ever. (For example, the Lee carried no payload and the Natchez was carrying passengers and a normal payload.) All details of the real ship, including the wooden railings and carvings are duplicated in plastic. Includes full rigging instructions and thread. Molded in tan and ivory plastic. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The very few parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete including decals/flags and instructions. NOTE: parts are from the Life-Like issue, but the instructions and decals are from a newer Lindberg issue. This is ideal as a builder because you get the earlier mold quality, the Lindberg instructions are much better and the decals are fresh and also better than what Life-Like provided.

Estes Goblin 'D' Powered, K-55

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$45   

Still factory sealed but missing header. From old hobby shop stock and as news. Please note this is an older issue with the 'K' part number and older illustration. The Goblin is a classic, high performance design with streamer recovery (because you will need it) and 'D' engines. It can be flown on C, B or A engines with an easy to make adapter.

Revell Douglas DC-7 United Airlines - Lodela Issue, 1/122, H220

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$65   

Rare Lodela issue, likely from the early 1960s. The kit is from the same molds and uses the same box art as the famous Pre 'S' Airport issue, but this kit was issued by Lodela with the airplane only - there are no ground accessories. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag including decals and instructions. NOTE: the big decal sheet was very neatly torn in two. One design was cut, the others are intact. The decals have age cracking.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good+

$79   

Still factory sealed but the seal has drawn the box top concave. Great kit of the airborne vengeance weapon launcher. Markings for KG53 'Legion Condor' or KG53 'Blitz-Geschwader'. These first cruise missile launchers reached operational status and limited success in operations. Missions went well but the accuracy of the V-1 was the primary limitation.
