Aurora Sopwith Camel, 1/48, 102-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$69   

Just when I think all the issues have surfaced for an Aurora kit, another one shows up! This is a 120-69 (same number as the first issue) 'Famous Fighters' oval logo with the '69' price circle and the Parents' Magazine seal. That makes this the second issue - it would have been put out in early 1957, with the very first re-imaging to the new logo. It also shows that the Parents' seal was used as early as 1957 on some kits. The box artist on this issue is Jim Cox, the first model box artist for Aurora. (Please read the article about Mr. Cox on this website) This kit is part of a very successful WWI aircraft line in 1/48 scale that Aurora introduced in '56. The line sold so well that kits were added to it into the 1960s. Molded in the glossy olive drab green and black. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

From the early 1950s. Comet advertises that the Struct-O-Speed series 'Puts Itself TogetherThat Quick!' on the box top.

Never started. Inventoried complete with all parts and excellent plans. Die-cut wooden parts have not been punched out and are intact in the sheets.

Lindberg Civil War Blockade Runner (Harriett Lane / Cutter 'Lavinia') (ex-Pyro), 1/124, 715

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$75   

1985 Lindberg issue from the original Pyro molds dating to the late 1950s. Large scale, full hull kit with very good detail for that time. Includes full rigging instructions. Molded in green, black, butterscotch and medium blue. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions. After the original 1960s issue, Pyro re-marketed the Harriett Lane as the 'Lavinia', which was what the Confederates renamed her when they captured her and made her a blockage runner. The Harriett Lane was built in 1858 and named for President Buchanan's niece. The cutter was 180 feet long with a 30 foot beam and displacement was 670 tons. Armament consisted of 3-9 inch Dahlgrens and 1-30 lb Parrot Rifle. She was built at a time when steam was not fool-proof, so she is rigged for full sails. Harriett Lane served as the Presidential Yacht, the fired the first shot of the Civil War. She chased down blockade runners until January 1, 1863 when she was attacked by five Confederate Gun Boats and boarded. She was captured and renamed the Lavinia and was used as a blockade runner. Near the end of the war she caught fire at sea, and put into Havana Harbor. Federal forces took her again and rebuilt her in 1869 as the bark 'Elliot Ritchie'. She was abandoned at sea in 1884.

Comet North American P-51B Mustang Speed Glider - 18 inch Wingspan Flying Model, G2

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$29   

From 1944. The 'Speed Glider' here was designed by the great Carl Goldberg. This type of model was tied to a string, which was in turn connected to a wooden stick 2 or 3 feet long. An accomplished pilot could whip the aircraft around, performing an excellent variety of stunts. As you can imagine, the kit has very sturdy construction to take these high speed maneuvers. It features two sheets of die cut, thin hardwood parts, hardwood and balsa stock, two sheets of full color covering material with complete aircraft color, windows and insignia (which completely eliminates painting) and detailed plans with balance and flight information. The fuselage is profile, while the wings and tail surfaces are built up the traditional stick and tissue way. Although in the end, there is no tissue but the superb full color decorated paper wraps that cover all the surfaces of the model. This kit has never been started. NOTE: missing one small section of one wood sheet; the three small parts on it are on the other sheet, they are very simple to duplicate. Inventoried with all other parts, covering papers and plans. The box appears much better than 'Good-' but I have graded it such because one large end flap and the four small flaps have fallen off. They are present and included however, and you could easily repair the box to make it complete. Comet was a famous manufacture of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.
