Aurora Boeing 727 TWA Jetliner - (727-100), 1/96, 354-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$95   

Rare 2nd issue dated 1963 but with the '249' kit number extension. If you look closely, this is the same artwork as the United 727 from 1962, but the Aurora artist carefully painted out the United markings, added the TWA Starstream markings and removed the UNITED neon sign from the background. Large, near 1/100 scale kit includes full landing gear, clear cockpit windows, full color decals and display stand. This model remains popular with 1/100 airliner modelers because it is the only 'short' body (-100) near this scale. Molded in white and clear with the big, clear 'world' triangle display stand. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Pyro 1934 Ford Three Window Coupe, 1/32, C308-60

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$39   

1960s Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of it's kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. In some cases, the specific car and owner is on the box. The model features detailed chassis, spoke wheels, complete interior and dual trunk-mounted spare tires. Molded in a beautiful gloss red and clear. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Ideal for slot car conversion, which is advertised on the side. Please NOTE the that box displays better than the 'good+' grade but is rated as such because there is very light age foxing on the box sides.
