Wen-Mac Northrop X-4 USAF, 1/50, 5501-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$165   

Very rare. Wen-Mac was a famous manufacture of gas powered U-Control model aircraft. In 1955, they produced their one and only injection molded model kit, this Northrop X-4. The kit is a 'whip fly' model where the pilot controls the elevator (and thus the pitch of the aircraft) with the Jimmy Walker patented U-Control. The instructions are on the back, and the small crinkle bag is still present. Please note that Wen-Mac did not issue this kit with decals. Molded in the correct red plastic with additional metal parts. The kit has never been started. NOTE: missing small metal nut, easy purchased at any hardware store. Otherwise inventoried complete with all other parts.

Aurora German Gotha G-V Bomber - Abare Issue - (GV), 1/48, 126-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

$89   

Ross Abare issue Gotha in amazing investment-grade, 'Near Mint' condition. Mr. Abare, a rare kits dealer in the earliest days of the hobby, contracted with Aurora to produce a copy of the original 1958 kit. However, Aurora has the printers use the mid 1960s oval logo without the 'Famous Fighters' in the border- thus forever separating the Abare issue from the original issue. Mr. Abare was reportedly quite upset, as he wanted exact copies. Molded in deep burgundy and black plastic. Never started.

Aurora Martin B-26 Marauder, 1/46, 371-259

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$325   

Very rare first issue from the early 1950s. When Aurora moved to the West Hempstead plant, they planned a series of very large scale bombers. All kits released up to this time had been small. Aurora's instincts were correct, and the B-26, B-25 and B-29 were a big sales success. This box art was done by Jim Cox and was only used for about one year, making it very rare. The kit has never been started and is inventoried 100% complete with the original tissue paper, all parts, large clear stand, instructions and decals. The box has very good color, four solid corners (no repairs), no fading, stains or tears and no price tags or tape (other than the factory sealing tape). It does have moderate general wear as shown, a small (3/4" x 3/8") price tag tear on the left short side, edge wear (more on the on the left than the right) and litho chips on the top long side along the edge.

Air Lines Fairey Gannet ASW - (ex-Frog), 1/72, 9804

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG-

$22   

Nicely done early kit from Frog molds and marketed by Air Lines. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. NOTE: the arresting gear is the correct part for an Air Lines Gannet, but is from a different issue so it is a different color plastic. Air Lines manufacturing history: The kits, decals and instructions were made in England, then imported to the USA where Testors created the boxes with the colorful trading cards on the back. There are two trading cards on each box which show the boxart but not the advertising/logo. Some kits contain a Testors color painting guide also, but it is not specific to any model.

The kits, decals and instructions were made in England, then imported to the USA where Testors created the boxes with the colorful trading cards on the back.
