$225   

Rare kit in fantastic 'Near Mint-' condition. The color and gloss is as new, all four corners are solid, there is no tape or tags and no marks from any older tape or tags. There is no fading or litho loss; the only flaw is light edge wear at the top as shown. This kit was also issued as 'Steve Canyon' Air Force Pilot. Very desirable large-scale model with 'Famous Fighters' sunburst logo. Dated 1958 but likely from '59 or 60. If you look closely, the artwork is the first issue F8U Crusader with the Air Force pilot placed in the foreground. Well detailed large 1/8 scale kit includes all pilot equipment and display base.

Heller Le Glorieux 74 Gun Ship - Circa 1770, 1/150, 913

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG-

$140   

Highly detailed kit with 870 parts and three large sheets of billowing sails. The 'Le Glorieux' was a French ship laid down in 1770. She is unique in that her lower hull was sheathed with coppers, a practice that did not take hold till much later. In 1779, she sailed with the Comte d'Estaing squadron, or the American Squadron. She was also part of the Blue Fleet with the flagship La Couronne. Never started. Factory sealed bag or complete with all parts, sails and instructions. Sails have typical dents and wear from age and being in the box so long.

Aurora The Red Knight of Vienna, 1/8, 474-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$115   

Hard to find hardbox issue from 1963. Molded in a beautiful deep gloss maroon plastic. This kit is the same scale as the other Aurora Knight kits and is molded in a beautiful deep burgundy. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including instructions. In the mid 1950s, Aurora bought three 'Knight' molds from Crown Plastics and issued them as K1, K2 and K3. These were the very first Aurora figure kits and they sported the 1956-only rectangular 'Northern Lights' logo with the correct 'Crown Line' logo inside it. The sales success of the Knight prompted Aurora to launch an entire line of figure kits. The knights themselves stayed in production long after many other figures were discontinued.

Fantastic factory sealed investment-condition box. The 'Woodwards' department store price tag is still on the kit. This issues has a small sticker on both short ends with '150' typed on it. These small stickers cover up the '175' price extension and were often done my manufactures to just change prices (in place of ordering new boxes). 1964 issue with 'Famous Fighters' in the border of the oval sunburst.

Aurora P-38 Lightning Brooklyn - Famous Fighters of All Nations, 1/48, 99-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$325   

First issue Brooklyn kit from the early 1950. Molded in the correct light blue with little surface detail and no mass balances, pitot tube or landing gear struts, wheels and doors. Includes the correct rectangular clear stand for this issue. Decals and instructions are in excellent condition. 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.

Heller Strasbourg Battlecruiser, 1/400, L1030

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$285   

Still factory sealed. Rare. The Dunkerque-class Battlecruisers were the French response to the German Graf Spee-class and the fast and well-armed Italian ships at the time. If the 1900 to 1930 span of French shipbuilding could be defined as lacking a clear vision or plan, the Strasbourg and her sister decisively ended that period. The products of superior design and engineering, the two sisters would re-define fast capital ships as would their near-sisters Battleships Richelieu and Jean Bart after them. But world events would conspire against these beautiful ships and there visibility in naval history. The Strasbourg was begun in 1934 at St. Nazire, launched in 1936 and put into service in 1939. She never navigated in peacetime. Displacement was 26,500 ton and top speed was 30 knots. Main armament was (8) 330mm guns and (16) 130 mm dual purpose. The main and secondary guns were mounted in the first quadruple turrets. Both main 330 mm turrets faced forward so that all main guns could fire when the enemy was sighted or in pursuit. Her superior speed would allow her to escape anything that she could not out-gun. Like most ships of the day she featured the 'All-Or-Nothing' armor design or 'armored box'. The compact design and placement of the main and secondary armament allowed unusually high armor protection for a battlecruiser. Serious consideration was also given to underwater protection, and the ships had a unique and effective (as events would prove) anti-mine/torpedo system with a novel water-exclusive material. At Mers-El-Kebir, her sistership Dunkerque was pinned at the pier. In an unlucky set of events, a ship moored next to her was sunk along with it's load of depth-charges. Later, a torpedo set off the huge explosive cargo. The damage to Dunkerque was immense. Other ships would have sunk, but she did not. Strasbourg was the only capital ship to get underway during the disaster at Mers-El-Kebir. Her superior speed allowed her to escape while two other French Battleships were sunk. She fled to Toulon, where she was eventually joined by the hastily repaired Dunkerque. However, when the Germans threatened to seize the ships, the entire fleet including the two sisters was scuttled in the harbor. The Italians raised the Strasbourg and stripped her of her guns; but she was bombed and sunk by Allied aircraft. In 1945 she was raised again, but salvage was beyond hope. In 1955 she was sold for scrap.

Hawk Mig-15, 1/48, 707

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

$125   

Very rare early injection molded kit. This kit is from 1952, so it was made at the same time that the Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' were released. Hawk was a producer of wooden kits ( with metal or plastic details) before and after WWII, and was one of the handful of manufactures to produce such kits (known as 'solids') in a consistent 1/48 scale. Hawk made aircraft, ship and train models in this fashion. The very first injection molded aircraft kits in the United States may have been made by Varney in 1946, but Hawk was always an innovative and quality-driven company, and they took a gamble on injection molded kit well before they were popular. As early as 1946 they may have issued the 1/48 Curtiss R3C-1 with wheels and in 1948 the 'Evolution of the Jet' gift set. In 1949, they issued several kits - the Supermarine S6B, Gee-Bee, Howard Ike, F-84G and the Constellation. In 1952, the Mig-15 was released in 1/48. As with the previous kits, this is in the Hawk two-tone one-piece flip box. This model is molded in the correct glossy silver with a unique early stand. Molded in gloss silver and green-tinted clear. The box is in exceptional condition. The kit has never been started. The contents have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
