Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++,   old
$125

Ex-Renwal molds. This is the large scale kit in 1/32, not the smaller Adams kit in 1/40. Nicely detailed and full of moving features like all large scale Renwal kits. Features three missiles, launcher and radar guidance trailer. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Aurora P-40 Warhawk Flying Tiger - Famous Fighters of All Nations, 1/48, 44A-69
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+++,   old
$250

Most likely the third issue. From the mid-1950s. Box is in investment grade condition. This is the short-lived issue with the small square 'Aurora Line' logo, unique (to this issue) artwork and 'Famous Fighters of All Nations' logo. Glue for plastic kits was not available in stores early on, so Aurora often included a small but colorful tube of Aurora Cement with the kits. This kit still has that sealed tube in mint condition. Molded in gloss olive drab and clear with one piece wings. Has original rectangular clear stand. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM-,   old
$325

I believe this is the 4th edition of this kit, and the first issue with this Jim Cox boxart. Dates from the mid 1956 with small 'Aurora Line' rectangular logo and 'Famous Fighters of All Nations'. It is interesting that this issue did not carry the standard Aurora 'Northern Lights' logo for 1956 - perhaps it was designed at the end of 1955 and simply left that way. Correctly molded in metallic burgundy and clear with the correct rectangular clear stand. For this issue the factory changed the swastikas on the tail to iron crosses and decals as well. This kit has never been started. It is either still in the internally sealed factory bag or has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
Aurora Boeing B-29 Superfortress, 1/76, 372-259
Aurora Boeing B-29 Superfortress, 1/76, 372-259
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM,   old
$375

Rare 1956 issue with the square 'Northern Lights' logo and arguably the most dramatic and fanciful B-29 artwork from the "Golden Era" of modeling. This is the second issue of this kit. The box is in exceptional condition with brilliant colors and gloss. There are no split corner and no repairs. Light edge wear as the only flaw. Responding to market sources 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. Never started and inventoried 100% complete with very high gloss silver parts, correct large 'Globe' two piece clear stand and correct decal sheet, mint condition instructions and even the original packing tissue paper.
Heller Pamir, 1/150, 80804
Heller Pamir, 1/150, 80804
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+++,   old
$250

Still sealed. Very large and highly detailed kit with 738 parts. Measures 75cm (~30 inches) in length and 40cm (~16 inches) high when assembled. Full hull kit includes display stand, fantastic deck and fittings detail, railings, detailed masts with separate yards, billowing vac sails, full rigging supplies, numerous rigging diagrams and pin diagrams and full building instructions. The Pamir was bulit in 1905 at Blohm & Voss shipyards to become the 51st ship in the fleet of R.F. Laeisz of Hamberg ("The Flying P Line" was a reference to the starting letter of most of the ships names and the numerous records that they held). She was a four masted barque of 4425 tons with a crew of 33. She saw extensive trade service between the wars and served in both World Wars. After WWI she was given away as compensation; however her original owner bought her back in the 1920s. Before WWI she was sold to a Finnish cereal shipping fleet. Her beauty saved her from torpedoes from a Japanese Submarine - the Commander simply could not sink so wonderful a ship. In her 40th year of existence, the Pamir was bought with the Passat by a Dutch demolition crew. Yet at the last moment the West German merchant marine bought both ships to train cadets in the 1950s. The Pamir was lost in an Atlantic storm in 1957.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc,   old

Originally constructed to protect the southern coast of France, this galley-type warship is one of the most colorful ever built. The Reale de France was the flagship of the 17th Century French Navy and carried the commander's flag and the flag of King Louis XIV. Large and very highly detailed. Contains banners and flags as shown on the cover. Never started. All parts that came in factory sealed bags are still sealed - those parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete. With flags, rigging material and instructions.

Revell BB-38 USS Pennsylvania, 1/426, H422-200
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+,   old
$155

1961 Sea Power hardbox release. Rare kit of the Arizona's sister ship. The Pennsylvania was in dry-dock during the December 7th Pearl Harbor attack and survived with minimal damage. She was rebuilt and saw significant action in the Pacific in WWII, steaming over 150,000 miles from 1941 to 1945. It is thought that she may have fired more ammunition than any ship in history. She never once reported 'Not Ready' for any operation or need. After being used as a nuclear test ship at Bikini, she was towed to Kwajalein and sunk. Never started. Inventoried complete with all parts, decals, flag sheet and instructions.

$850

Very rare. Monogram did not issue many gift sets. To make matters more interesting, the ones they issued were very short lived. Many were simply sets of models in sleeves with no dedicated boxes. By 1960, the Monogram Gift sets were no more. This gift set, the Air Force patrol, is interesting because it's not just a sleeve; it has a dedicated box designed for this gift set. It is the one and only issue, dated 1957. The condition is investment grade; the box has no more wear than when it was removed from the shipping carton. The colors and gloss are as new with minor edge wear as the only flaw. Inside, the three kits are still individually factory sealed, including the tube of Monoglue. Also includes the original "Monogram Model Merry Christmas" box wrapper, also in fantastic condition - these seldom survived the opening of the kit. Overall, a hard-to-find kit in factory new condition.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++,   old
$500

One of the famous 'Brooklyn Eight' kits from early 1950. These were issued in very limited numbers and are among the hardest to find Aurora kits. This model is correct in every way with an excellent box. Correct features of Brooklyn kits are as follows: no or minimal rivet detail, no landing gear and no bombs/rockets, clear rectangle stand says 'Brooklyn', instructions say "Brooklyn" and the decals are made by "Tatem Company" and will not have a stand decal included. Kit has never been started and is 100% complete with all correct parts, stand, decals and instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++,   old
$295

First issue early 1950s U-Ma-Kit from Brooklyn factory. The Yak-25 did not exist; in the next issue the aircraft is called a Mig-19. Molded in the correct Brooklyn high-gloss medium pea-green and clear plastic, with the correct "Brooklyn" stand, instructions and decals. The box is in excellent shape with light surface wear being the only flaw. Even has the original packing tissue. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions.
Aurora P-38 Lightning Brooklyn - Famous Fighters of All Nations, 1/48, 99-98
Aurora P-38 Lightning Brooklyn - Famous Fighters of All Nations, 1/48, 99-98
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++,   old
$650

First issue early 1950s from the Aurora Brooklyn factory. Molded with correct light gloss blue and clear plastic with correct Brooklyn stand, decals and instructions. Even has original packing tissue paper. Decals are in beautiful condition and are still flat. Box is excellent with light scuffing as the only flaws. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The Aurora issues of the 1/48 scale P-38 are interesting to say the least. The first issue is the Brooklyn kit with the P-38/B-24 box artwork. Inside, the plastic is light blue with minimal surface detail and a clear canopy and rectangular stand that says 'Aurora Plastic Corp. Brooklyn, 4, N.Y.'. There are no landing gear, gear doors or mass balances. The second issue has identical box art, plastic color, decals and rectangular stand, but the box and instructions says 'West Hempstead' instead of Brooklyn. The clear stand mold has had 'Brooklyn' milled out, and there is no location on the stand. The third issue has the same artwork, but the full color 'Aurora Line' logo is used - but the big changes were on the inside. Aurora modified the molds, adding a pitot tube, elevator mass balances and landing gear struts, wheels and doors. The decals and stand remain the same, but the new instructions reflect the changes to the molds. This time the kit is molded in an attractive metallic blue. The fourth issue dropped the Jim Cox artwork in favor of a new P-38 flying from right to left across a threatening sky. The plastic still metallic light blue and the decals and stand remain unchanged. The new details were retained. The fifth issue was 1959. The oval 'Famous Fighters' logo was used with Jo Kotula artwork of two P-38s. The detail level of the kit remained the same, but it was molded in olive drab and clear. The newer 'Triangle' base was added at this time. Further issues kept this box artwork, but the oval logo changed as well as the price extensions.

Rare. First and only issue dated 1958. Life-sized plastic kit with eucalyptus tree stand, injection molded parts, Revell Cement, brush, and three colors of realistic 'fur' to apply after assembly.

Revell HMS Campbeltown (USS Buchanan), 1/240, H450
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint,   old
$89

Still factory sealed. 1971 issue. Large scale and highly detailed kit of the historic four-pipe destroyer. Originally the USS Buchanan Four-Piper, she was traded in the famous Lend-Lease program for the use of British bases. On March 8, 1942, the Campbeltown sailed up the Loire River. Her mission was to destroy the Normandie Drydock, a possible haven for the Tirpitz which was holed up on Norway at this time. The Campbeltown was disguised as a German warship and the bow was packed with 8500 lbs of high explosive depth charges. Under a RAF diversion, Campbeltown fought her way up the river and rammed the dock doors at full speed. Charges at the stern sank the back of the ship and she was wedged in the dock. During a German inspection 8 hours later, the charges went off, scattering parts of the ship up to one mile away. The dock was rendered useless to the Tirpitz, who now had to stay in Norway.

MPC Pilgrim Observer Space Station Nuclear, 1/100, 9001
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+++,   old
$155

Still factory sealed. This offering from MPC is one of the most interesting and a classic among Science Fiction kits. The model dates from 1975. Large 1/100 scale kit is 17 inch long, has excellent detail and a large clear section to show interior detail. Fourteen movable parts allow you to display or change the ship's configuration from "Launch" to "Earth's Atmosphere Entry" to "Space Cruise". Also contains complete 'technical' flight data, a report on the NERVA Nuclear Engine and an iron-on shirt transfer. There was a time when space research was not aimed at the earth's orbit and moon, but at distant planets in our solar system and eventually beyond. Planning went much further than most people are aware. The main limitation was seen as the chemical rocket motor. It could only be fired once and the specific impulse was limited. To overcome these limitations, the United States embarked on a large program to build the nuclear rocket engine. Unlike the nuclear aircraft engine, this program overcame the technical obstacles placed before it was VERY successful. The effort resulted in numerous test engines up through the Phoebes 5000 MW monster, which is still the world's most powerful reactor. The nuclear engines could run at full power for an hour, then be shut down and restarted up to a dozen times or more. Also, the flow of fuel (liquid hydrogen) could be regulated through turbo-pumps to 'throttle' the engine just as one does a car engine. Crew radiation shielding from the engine was less than requirements for cosmic ray shielding. At one point, a KIWI series reactor (KIWI-TNT) was blown up on purpose to test the environmental impact; it was minimal and clean up went quickly. The final result was to be a space rated engine called NERVA, or Nuclear Engine for Rocket Vehicle Application. Before the project was terminated, many vehicles were designed for deep space exploration based on these amazing engines.

Monogram Little Air Force Assortment Gift Set - Speedee-Bilt F-51 (P-51) / F6F and Superkit F-51 and F-84
Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM,   old
$1200

Very rare 1950s "pre-injection molded" gift set. Long before injection molded kit were made in the USA, Monogram produced perhaps the finest pre-fabricated wooden kits with plastic details. The Speedee-Bilt series were flying models with pre-painted and cut wooden parts with plastic props, cowls, pilots, etc. The Superkits were smaller static models with precarved wooden parts and many plastic details. The kits themselves are rare today, but the gift set is very rare. Monogram issued very few gift sets for injection kits, and even fewer in the early 1950s for the wooden kits. The gift set consists of a special 'Christmas' box with a tray and lift-off top with a cello window. This one contains 2 Superkits (F-84 Thunderjet and F-51 Mustang) and 2 Speedee-Bilts (the F6F Hellcat and F-51 Mustang). The outer box is near mint and in investment grade condition - which is amazing considering the age of the set. Even the original cut-out add for MonoDope and MonoGlue is present. The four kits are in mint boxes and have never started. Each is 100% inventoried complete with all parts/decals and instructions present.
