Aurora Boeing P-26A Peashooter, 1/43, 115-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$65   

Unusual 'Big Box' issue. Please note that this box is significantly larger in length and width than the more common small box issue. other than size, the only difference is the small box has the Aurora logo on the box ends with a yellow background; on this box there is no yellow background. This issue may have come first, but that is only a guess. Regardless, it is from the early 1950s with old 'Aurora Line' rectangular logo. This kit was issued shortly after moving to the West Hempstead facility on Long Island. The side logos are the old Brooklyn style but with the new address in the lower bar. Molded in the correct glossy medium blue and clear with the early style rectangular stand, correct Tatem Company decals and the correct instructions. NOTE: the kit has minor assembly; the floor has been neatly glued to the seat support. Quality of construction is professional. There is no other assembly. NOTE: the interior cockpit pieces, engine and inside of the wheels pants have been neatly painted flat black. Quality of paint is 'excellent.' Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

MPC Concorde SST - British Airways (Airfix Molds), 1/144, 1-4733

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$24   

1982 issue from quality Airfix molds. This is from the 2nd set of Airfix molds, which are the most accurate. Very finely molded and nicely detailed. The kit has never been started. The parts are all in the internal factory sealed bag. Includes decals and instructions. NOTE: I have included the Airfix decals for British Airways with this model because the original decals are intact but water damaged.

Airfix Spad S.VIII Guynemer 1917 - Blister Pack, 1/72, 01049-8

$22

Orange Crush-Revell 1910 Cadillac Limousine, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair++

$62   

Very rare kit with a fascinating history. Around 1958/59, Orange Crush of Mexico offered a promotion. They offered free, colorful, plastic model cars if you collected correctly-marked Orange Crush bottle caps. The models are 1/32 scale Revell Highway Pioneer series - although there is no mention of Revell or Lodela anywhere on the box. Orange Crush had the boxes and even the instructions specially made for them with no mention of a manufacture. They were never given numbers. The boxes were very thin and fragile cardboard. This has contributed to wear and you must be very cautious with them. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bag and the instructions are sealed in the bag as well. You could redeem your caps two ways - at the Orange Crush truck and at a Modelandia Hobby House. The box sides show the 18 cars in the series. Orange Crush also released two full-color booklets and a complete paint set for the cars. A colorful cardboard box held 7 colors of paint in glass bottles, complete with 'Orange Crush' screw-on caps! The entire promotion was done in coordination with Modelandia Hobby House which had up to 19 stores. Modelandia's name appears on each of the boxes and the paint as well. Robina S.A. was the bottler or distributor of Orange Crush in Mexico at that time. The box side lists the other 18 kits with small color pictures of each and shows three sizes of OC - Family Size (Familiar), Grand (Grande) and Normal. You could also obtain models with Titan bottle caps. Titan was also bottled by Robina and came in large (Titan) and smaller (Titancito) sizes and apparently more than one flavor. We do not know how Orange Crush had access to the plastic kits or who sealed the internal bags with the Crush instructions inside them. We can assume that it may have been Lodela, since they would have had access to the Revell molds. It is not know for how long the promotion lasted, but Orange Crush was one of the most dominant soft drinks in Mexico at that time. Here is one clue: some boxes claim that Modelandia had 13 locations; other boxes, which obviously came later on, claim 19 locations. This may indicate that this promotion went on for a significant amount of time.

Aurora North American F-107 Fighter Bomber, 1/114, 295-29

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

$80   

Dated 1958 with Jo Kotula box art; this issue is likely from the early to mid 1960s as there is no 'Famous Fighters' in the logo boarder. The box is in fantastic condition with like-new color and gloss, four solid corners, no fading or price tags and the only tape marks are from the factory sealing tape. Molded in silver and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Monogram Republic F-105D Thunderchief - Blue Box Issue, 1/72, PA149-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$26   

Sale Pending
Email for availability.

Second issue dated 1966. Nice quality kit from the older, modified 'Four Star' molds (see below). Includes drop tanks, bombs, opening canopy, pilot figure, ground crewman and boarding ladder. Molded in green, light gray and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals. NOTE: instructions are missing, so I have included the exploded parts diagram from the Four Star kit. There are differences, but you can easily built the kit from this. This is a fine time to outline the mold changes that Monogram made. The Four Star issue was much closer to the very early or prototype aircraft. For the 'Blue Box' issue Monogram did a very nice upgrade. The two rear-vision windows behind the cockpit were removed, the 'spring' for the ejecting pilot was left out, the revolving bomb bay and nuclear bomb was replaced with the new fuselage, two supersonic drop tanks and external bombs. The kit was molded in two colors and had new decals, both of which reflected the bombing role in South East Asia.

UPC HMS Victory General Mills Cereal Premium, 1/400, 5001

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$24   

Cereal premium from the 1960s still in the original General Mills labeled shipping box. Inside is a very nice UPC full-hull Victory featuring a display stand, detailed deck fittings, preformed rat lines, separately molded masts and yards, vacuform billowing sails and detailed rigging diagrams. The ship is molded in black, dark wood brown and tan wood to minimize painting. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. NOTE: one deadeye part has the lower 'ropes' broken off and most are missing. This is easily replaced with pulled sprue or any small strip plastic stock.

Aurora Scotch Lassie, 1/8, 420-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$75   

Rare kit dated 1957. Part of the 'Guys and Gals Of All Nations,' these very well detailed kits simply did not sell well. Aurora quickly dropped them from the line, which made them instant collector's items. The kit has never been started. The parts are either inventoried 100% complete or still in the internal factory sealed bag. Includes instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Features all recessed panel lines, excellent scale detail for that time, opening tandem canopies, moving horizontal stabilizers, detailed, removable jet engines and two pilots. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

All three were sunk at very close range by the Warspite.

Frog Republic P-47 Thunderbolt - GC III/3 Ardennes Free French or No.615 Sq RAF SEAC India 1945, 1/72, F232

This kit has never been started. NOTE: missing display stand. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts, decals and instructions.
