Pyro Blunderbus Pistol Pirate's Favorite Weapon, 1/1, G228-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM-

$69   

First issue hardbox with great artwork and from the early 1960s. The original owner opened the box but carefully left the seal on the box top, so it is superb condition. The only flaw is a short crease on one long side - otherwise I would have graded it 'mint.' This is a full-size 15 inch long copy of the actual weapon. Molded in bronze/antique gold and a beautiful very dark swirl wood brown. The kit has never been started. The gold parts are still in the factory sealed bag and the brown parts have been inventoried complete with instructions. In addition to cars, ships, planes and figures, Pyro added an excellent line of well-known and not-so-well-known life-sized (1/1) scale pistol and rifle models to their line. In each case Pyro gained access to the actual weapon during the kit design, insuring a very accurate model.

I have seen this model built and it is a beautiful large-scale representation of the ship. Measures 16 inches long when built. The kit has never been started. Complete with all parts, decals and instructions/plans. Even includes the original sandpaper.

Aurora Cessna 310, 1/62, 283-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$79   

NOTE: builder only, please read carefully. 1963 issue from ex-Comet molds. Neatly molded with all recessed panel lines, rotating propellers, display stand and full pinstripe decals. The kit has never been started. NOTE: missing one tip tank half. The other three are present; you can use one as a master and cast one in resin (if you are good at that), or the kit can be built without the tip tanks, and 310s do exist without them (although it is unusual). Also missing one side clear window, which can be replaced with clear plastic stock as it is almost flat. Inventoried with all other parts present including decals and instructions. Aurora had started a line of inexpensive 29 cent kits in about 1957. The line was a success, and it was expanded. The line grew again when Aurora purchased the Comet molds, as most of Comet's line was very small scale kits, many of them civil aircraft like this one. It appears that Aurora was encouraged by the sale of the ex-Comet civil aircraft, as it expanded the line with it's own molds in the early 1960s.
