Lindberg Avro Vulcan Jet Bomber With Ground Equipment - Cellovision Issue, 1/96, 537-149

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$85   

Rare late 1950s Cellovision deluxe issue with Ray Gaedke artwork, intact clear panel and trading card on the back. Includes a nice assortment of scale ground equipment and ground crew molded in yellow plastc. The kit features movable ailerons, wing flaps, rudder, pilot and copilot figures and a large, clear round-base stand. The aircraft is molded in white and clear. Although the box has some tape and general wear, it is easily in above average condition, which is rare. These boxes were fragile and easily damaged by normal handling. The box art a/c, VX777, was the aerodynamic prototype of the Mk. 2, and first flew on August 31, 1957.

Lindberg F7U-1 Cutlass - (F7U1), 1/48, 510-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$89   

1956 or '57 Gaedke artwork with three aircraft and the carrier. The box top has like new color and gloss, four solid corners, no repairs, no price tags, no fading and no litho tears. General and even light wear are the only flaws. The model is molded in a stunning, high-gloss dark blue and clear plastic and includes decals for the box art aircraft including red and white checkerboards for the rudders. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. Dating early Lindberg kits is problematic to a near complete lack of release information; early catalogs normally do not have dates, and there are no dates on early boxes or instructions & decals. However, by records kept when the kits were purchased new, we know this kit was issued either in 1956 or 1957. The early part number of '10' after the 5 would support such an early date, as Lindberg initially used sequential numbers. Please note that the instructions for this kit contain multiple factory mistakes! The pilot sits on a seat, not the 'board' shown in the instructions. The pitot tube is not even shown on the assembly page, but is present with the kit.

CM USS Milwaukee (Protected Cruiser 1910), 1/350

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$245   

SPECIAL ORDER limited production kit. Museum quality high definition resin castings. Complete kit with all parts needed for assembly. Some kits include photo-etched details and decals if required -email for details on a certain kit. Kits are molded upon receipt of payment. Normal wait is two to three weeks. The USS Milwaukee was wrecked off Eureka, CA on December 14, 1916, while attempting to tow the stranded submarine H-3. The decision to employ Milwaukee, instead of a commercial salvage firm with much experience in local waters, has been the subject of historical criticism. H-5 was later successfully recovered and returned to the Fleet.

Toko Siemens Shuckert D-III / D-IV - Ernest Udet or Alphred Lerner, 1/72, Ro116

$18

Revell Lockheed F-94C Starfire Interceptor - With One Piece Stand Arm - Pre 'S' Kit, 1/56, H210-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$175   

1954 Pre-S issue. This is the rare second issue. The first issue was in the simple one-piece box and Revell quickly converted to this two-piece box as it was much more durable and a full-color lithographed 'slick' could be used. For the second issue, Revell added rivet and raised panel line detail as well as landing gear, a two piece box and H210-79 kit number. The famous 'Globe' clear stand was added, but this kit has the rare one piece stand arm and the instructions reflecting that. Revell quickly realized that the one-piece arm was not strong enough, and quickly modified it to the familiar three piece arm for the 3rd issue. The box is in very good++ condition with four solid corners, nice color and gloss and minimal wear with minor insect damage on the corners of one short side. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Decals and instructions are in near mint condition. The original small parts 'krinkle' bag is present as well.

Revell A-5A A3J Vigilante - Strategic Air Power Issue - VAH-7 USS Enterprise, 1/82, H134

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$58   

1969 issue. This is the about the fourth (perhaps fifth?) issue of the Vigilante bomber 'S' kit that Revell produced in 1959. A superb model for that time, it features all fine recessed panel lines, very good scale detail, opening tandem canopies, moving elevators, detailed, removable jet engines and two pilots. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present.

Aurora Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina - Scale Error Version, 1/74, 374-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$135   

Rare, first issue artwork from about 1955-56. This was a fine effort by Aurora for that time and an impressive model when assembled. Features retracting pontoons and rotating props. Includes correct early logo instructions which show the clear 'Triangle World' stand and the correct stand is included. This must be one of the first instances of the 'Triangle' stand being used as it is normally associated with oval 'Famous Fighter' logo kits. Molded in gloss silver and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please note the 'good' grade due to small white paint spots at the right and a slight crunch at the upper right corner. It is interesting to note that the early Aurora PBY issue has at least three small variations to the box top. The very first issue says '1/4 SCALE MODEL' at the top right. Clearly, this kit is not 1/48 scale and someone at Aurora corrected it. Following that, there are two known corrections: early and late. On the early version, the '1/4' was blotted out with a dark blue oval or circle and '5/32' was added after the word 'SCALE.' It was now correct, but the appearance was not completely professional. This box is the early, uncorrected version.

Aurora Albatross D-3 - (Albatros DIII), 1/48, 104-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$65   

Rare. Please note, this is a 'Famous Fighters' logo, first box art issue kit WITHOUT the Parents' Magazine Logo and a 69 cent price extension. This is the first time I have seen a non-79 cent version of this kit. Just when you think you have Aurora figured out, another variation comes along! That would make this the true third issue of this kit - only three issues have the 69 cent extension and are from 1956 and 1957. This kit has not been factory overstamped to 79 and still shows 69 on both sides The kit is molded in gloss dark green and black. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The decals are 'excellent' and the instructions are near mint. Please NOTE that the box only grades 'good.' The box has good color, is very solid (including all four corners) and has no fading but there is the obvious short litho tear under the logo on the box top. Additionally, there is general wear as shown and a short piece of masking tape on each of the two long sides.

$125   

Still factory sealed and the seal has drawn the box top concave. Very rare Lodela issue. Please note the 30th anniversary of Lodela logo at the top right.

Features extensive decals with all side stripes, fin flash, name boards and more, fine raised and many recessed panel lines, detailed landing gear that can be built retracted or extended, detail main gear bay, good engine inlet and exhaust detail and a large display stand.
