Life-Like Proto 2000 CB&Q Burlington U28B Locomotive With DDC Plug - HO Scale, 1/87, 31075

Metal and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++


In 'near mint' condition. DCC-ready locomotive was run perhaps twice then returned to the original styrofoam and box. The small parts were never even installed; they are present and still in the factory sealed clear bag. Includes all paperwork. The model is not even dusty. The only flaw I can find is a small area of black on the fuel tank - it appears to either be a factory flaw or from sitting against the packing material for too long.

Fador 1905 REO Runabout, 1/16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


Rare kit dated 1949. Very well detailed for that time. Big-scale model features numerous die-cut, machined and saw-cut wooden parts, excellent plastic wheels, grill, steering wheel, lanterns and horn, other metal parts and metal stock and die-cut cardstock parts. Come with superb, large fold out plans that show four elevations drawings, many various detail drawings, a photo of the finished model and extensive text instructions. The kit has never been started and has been inventoried complete. Fador was another maker of big 1/16 classic cars, like Hudson Miniatures. The full name was Fador Mfg. Company and the address was 501E. Clinton St., Elmira, NY. It appears that Hudson beat Fador to the scene by a year; Hudson's spectacular product line growth starting in 1948 may have influenced Fador in the choice of subject and scale. Fador called the line 'Smallersters' and the design of the kits is very similar. Fortunately, Fador chose completely different vehicles. Because of their great decisions, these are often the only model kits ever made of these historical cars. There is no record of Fador making any plastic kits; the introduction and overwhelming popularity of the Highway Pioneers and the other kits that quickly followed may have driven them out of the market as it did many other wood manufactures.

Aurora Lockheed P-38 Lightning, 1/48, 99-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++


The Jo Kotula box artwork is dated 1959, but the kit is slightly later (early 1960s) due to the '130' price extension and the lack of 'Famous Fighters' in the ovals. The box is 'excellent++' with like new color and gloss and four solid corners. Molded in silver and clear the the 'triangle' clear stand and stand arm. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including 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. This is a 6th issue due to the lack of 'Famous Fighters' in the oval, and the 99-130 price.
