Aurora The Silver Knight of Augsberg, 1/8, 471-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Mint

Sold   

1963 hardbox release in amazing investment-grade 'Mint' condition. I usually don't classify anything as 'Mint' but this box is truly in the same condition that it left the factory in. Classic and very popular Aurora knight kit from the original molds. Large 1/8 scale model is molded gloss silver and includes the yellow plume in surprisingly excellent condition as well. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts, plume and 'near mint' condition instructions. In the mid 1950s, Aurora bought three 'Knight' molds from Crown Plastics and issued them as K1, K2 and K3. These were the very first Aurora figure kits and they sported the 1956-only rectangular 'Northern Lights' logo with the correct 'Crown Line' logo inside it. The sales success of the Knight prompted Aurora to launch an entire line of figure kits. The knights themselves stayed in production long after many other figures were discontinued.

ESCI FIVE M3A1 Armored Scout Car / THREE 3/4 Ton 4x4 Carrier Trucks / FOUR M4A1 Sherman Tanks, 1/72, 8038

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

SALE!! Includes all 12 kits in the boxes shown with decals and instructions. NOTE: Sold AS-IS and not inventoried. This collector was very meticulous and of his kits that I did inventory, 95% are complete. But he cut the sprue (trees) with the part numbers still attached to each number, so the parts are loose. Because of that, I have not inventoried these kits. NOTE: he very neatly built minor to major sub assemblies to "excellent++ to professional" quality. Most are minor, but occasionally there is major assembly, in this case on the M3A1s. Again, these kits are sold not inventoried and AS IS hence the very low price.
