The kit is probably from the 1970s and is a reproduction of the famous Quaker series adapted for R/C (Radio Control).

This model came from the estate of a very active and particular early aircraft kit collector. It is like factory-new inside and has not been started. Complete with all parts, instructions and plans.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$45   

1958 first issue with fantastic Jo Kotula boxart. This is the Parents' Magazine issue with the seal located in the lower right. In the day this was considered a fine kit and rated highly in reviews. Classic 1930s Navy Biplane Fighter that is still famous for their colorful paint jobs at that that time. Cowl, tail and trim color would vary with the group's Aircraft Carrier (Ranger, Lexington or Saratoga and the aircraft's position in the flight formation. NOTE: has minor assembly. The seat and floor have been neatly glued to the cockpit. Quality of assembly is professional. There is no other assembly and zero painting. Inventoried 100% 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++++

Dated 1958 with Jo Kotula box art; this issue is likely from the early to mid 1960s as there is no 'Famous Fighters' in the logo boarder.

Molded in a wonderful gloss dark green and clear. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
