Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc++
One piece box is dated 1962 and has frameable artwork. This issue is likely a year later than that date due to the 50 cent price extension; the original was 49. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

1954 Pre 'S' issue. Second release of these molds in the wider box. The first issue is in a much narrower box. This is the first kit that Revell actually cut it's own molds for. Kits previous to this were marketed from other companies, such as Gowland & Gowland. It is said that the Missouri was the most profitable kit that Revell ever produced. Never started. 100% inventoried complete with all parts/flag sheet and instructions present.

Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: VG
Very rare. This is an early Japanese export kit from TMY in Tokyo, probably dating right around 1960. It was clearly intended for control line operation. The kit has a very high degree of prefabrication for that time, featuring fully cut and ready to assemble plywood fuselage bulkheads, fully cut balsa wing rigs, cut out (but final sanding required) wheels pants, tail planes and all other wood parts, strip wood, formed wire main gear strut, balloon-type main wheels and solid tail wheel, an extensive (still sealed) hardware packet, wood for sheeting, silk covering material (still sealed) and full size plans. The kit has never been started. The internal condition is exceptional; many parts are still attached to the orange factory display board with string; even more are still wrapped with the factory green tape. The kit has been inventoried complete with all parts and plans. It must be shipped insured.
Other Materials, Box Condition: Good
Classic armor strategy game in excellent condition. You could easily argue that the game was never played. The 3 boards are 'as-new' condition with no wear, the Roster Pad is intact, the German/British Hit Probability Charts and Casualty Table and look factory new. 95% of the pieces are were never punched; a small handful were punched and put back into the holders. Instructions are as new. The original Avalon Hill order form, mailing list and catalog card and even the 'Game/Parts Price List' are present and excellent. I do not see any dice; they may or may not have come with this game.
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: NM
Very rare kit from about 1954 or earlier. First Lindberg issue with no price suffix and borrowing the Ray Gaedke artwork that he did for the O-Lin issue. As a matter of fact, this box still says 'For Best Results Use O-Lin's Polystyrene Cement' This kit is in fantastic investment grade 'near mint' condition. The box has fantastic color and gloss, four solid corners, no price tags or tag marks and no tape other than the light marks from the factory tape. The only flaws are light general wear. Inside, the kit is factory-new, molded in a brilliant metallic high-gloss dark blue and clear. It has never been started. The small parts are still sealed in the factory 'krinkle' bag and all other parts have been inventoried present, along with beautiful flat decals and 'excellent' instructions.

Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc++
Very rare kit for the advanced collector. This is a very hard to fine original O-lin kit in the very small box, early Ray Gaedke box art and advertisement for O-lin cement on the top. Produced in 1949 or just before. O-Lin (Olin) was founded by Paul Lindberg and a Mr. Olsen - hence the company name. Although a producer of flying models in the 1930s, O-lin produced some of the earliest American injection molded kits in the late 1940s. In 1950 the partnership may have ended, because all branding was changed to Lindberg and Paul Lindberg. Inside, the kit is as new. It is molded in a beautiful, glossy medium blue and has the correct decals and instructions. The decals and instructions have minor yellowing but are in excellent condition. The kit has never been started and is inventoried complete with all parts, instructions and decals.

Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: NM-
I believe this is the 4th edition of this kit, and the first issue with this Jim Cox boxart. Dates from mid 1955 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. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
