Aurora The Barnstormers Customizing Kit DH-4 and JN-4 Jenny, 1/48, 200-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$169   

Rare one-and-only 1960 issue that contains both the DH-4 and Curtis JN-4 Jenny. Aurora really went out of the way to make this a special kit; however, it did not sell well and was retired after one year. Features completely new box artwork, a DH-4 molded in gloss dark green and black, the JN-4 molded in gloss bright yellow and black, great custom decal sheets for both aircraft and special 'Barnstormer' instructions for each aircraft. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts present and includes decals and instructions. Instructions are both in 'excellent+' condition and the decal sheets are both completely flat (no rolling) with typical age yellowing as the only flaw.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Still factory sealed and in exceptional investment-grade "Near Mint" condition. It is dated 1961 but likely the second issue from about 1962/63 because of the sunburst oval logo has no 'Famous Fighters' in the border. Large 1/48 scale kit with fantastic Jo Kotula box artwork is nicely detailed for that time with cockpit, full landing gear, four AIM-7 Sparrow missiles and a large, clear 'Triangle World' display stand.

Aurora Nieuport II French Fighter, 1/48, 101-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$39   

Dated 1956, but this is a 1960s issue with the later John Steel artwork and blue oval 'Aurora' logo with no 'Famous Fighters'. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. This is part of the famous Aurora WWI series of 1/48 scale aircraft. The series began in 1956 and Aurora added new kits into the early 1960s. The line proved incredibly popular, so these kits were included in the 'mold upgrade' in the 1970s before Aurora went out of business.

Aurora Spitfire Famous Fighters of all Nations First Issue, 1/48, 20-59

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$349   

Rare first issue that is 100% correct. The box has excellent color and gloss, four solid original corners (no repairs), no fading or stains, no missing litho or tears, no tags or tag marks and no tape or tape marks (other than the factory sealing tape of course). Flaws include very light general wear as shown and moderate corner wear at the lower left corner. This first issue has minimal surface detail and is molded in the correct non-metallic medium blue and clear plastic. It also has the correct rectangle-based clear display stand and the instructions match this perfectly. (The second and all later issues had greatly increased rivet detail and were molded in a metallic blue plastic) The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. The decals are flat and in amazing 'near mint' condition with only the slightest yellowing. The instructions are 'near mint+' with slight yellowing being the only flaw. Even the original factory packing tissue is present.

Aurora Focke-Wulf Fw-190 Famous Fighters Of All Nations - First Issue With Swastika, 1/48, 30-59

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

$349   

Very rare first issue which includes the proper swastika box art and swastika decals. The box has excellent color and gloss, four solid original corners (no repairs), no price tags or tag marks, no tape or tape marks (other than the thin factory sealing tape of course), no fading, stains or torn/missing litho. Flaws include general wear as shown, especially to the left corners and edge as shown. This issue is 100% correct for the first release. The FW-190 was originally issued at the new West Hempstead factory, meaning that it was never part of the famous "Brooklyn 8" (Aurora's first 8 aircraft kits). That also means that the first issue had landing gear and bombs but still had the small clear rectangle stand which was also shown on the instructions. The late issue of the '190 also means it is the rarest of the swastika issues because the swastika was painted out a short time after moving to West Hempstead. Molded in the correct gloss black and clear, with the rectangle-based clear stand, matching instructions and a stunning 'near mint' condition decal sheet which is flat and not even yellowed. The instructions are 'excellent' with slight yellowing, light wear and a 3/4" closed split on a fold crease. Even the original factory packing tissue is present.
