Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Mint

$64   

1969 Big A hardbox issue in incredible, investment-grade 'Mint' condition. As you know, I hesitate to call anything 'perfect' but this kit has no more wear than the moment it left the shipping box to be unpacked at a local hobby shop. Aurora's armor kits were most welcome and received superb reviews in most early modeling magazines. Features elevating gun, rotating turret, figures, operating treads and bogies and battlefield display stand. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Sterling Ansaldo S.V.A. 5 That Drops Leaflets in Flight - 19 nch Wingspan R/C / Freeflight / Control Line Aircraft - (SVA-5), A18

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$79   

19 inch wingspan kit for RC, free flight or control line. Includes innovative system for automatically dropping 'propaganda leaflets' in flight. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they featured color decals, high-grade die cut balsa, vacuform plastic detail parts, plastic wheels (if required), finished wire landing gear, rubber motor and plastic prop, full size plans with instruction details and full instructions for conversion to RC or control line.

Comet Republic P-47D Thunderbolt - 24 Inch Wingspan Flying Aircraft, 3502

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG+

$54   

Still factory sealed. 1970s large scale issue for rubber or gas free flight, or easily converted to RC using today's tiny and light servos and receivers. Kit features traditional wood/tissue construction, insignia, detailed full size plans, building instructions, wheels, hardware, tissue and propeller. Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.

Matchbox TWO M16 Halftrack / TWO SdKfz 234/2 Puma / TWO Churchill AVRE, 1/76, PK78

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$28   

SALE!! Includes all 6 kits in the three boxes shown. NOTE: Sold AS-IS and not inventoried. This collector was very meticulous and of his kits that I did inventory, 95% are complete. But on these kits 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 built sub assemblies to 'professional' quality. Some assembly is minor but some is major. He also almost always removed the display stands (if provided). Again, these kits are sold not inventoried and AS IS hence the very low price.

Revell Bomarc IM-99 Missile with Launcher - History Makers Issue, 1/47, 8602

$95   

1982 issue. From the molds for the rare 'S' kit from the late 1950s. Features fully operational launcher. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Midwest Fortastrop - 36 inch Wingspan Free Flight Airplane for Sport or Competition, FG-6

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$125   

From the 1940s. Flying model aircraft predated powered flight; however, balsa wood and printwood were not introduced until the early 1930s and the hobby took off, as well as the hunt for thermals. Gas flight began in the early 1930s, and gas powered models, all powered by Brown engines, took home so many awards that they were forever separated from rubber powered models. Design of gas models was tricky since RC could not yet be applied to the mass market; so a gas model had to not only fly and climb under power, but then glide sufficiently - all without any operator inputs once the airplane took off. Getting the wing up out of the propeller airflow was a huge improvement, and this type of design proliferated. This is one example of a parasol style 1940s free-flight competition aircraft designed by FS Garcher. Quality kit includes printwood, strip wood, wheels, tissue and beautiful full size plans. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

$90   

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. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora Spad XIII, 1/48, 107-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

$75

This is part of a popular and very successful series of 1/48 scale WWI aircraft that Aurora started in 1956 and added to well into the 1960s. Many of the line were in production right up until the demise of Aurora in the mid 1970s Molded in correct high-gloss olive drab and black plastic. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Heller Potez 63-II - (63II / 6311), 1/72

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$12   

Early to mid 1960s issue with high-gloss, wrap around box art and before Heller kits carried kit numbers. The 63.II was a further development of the successful Potez 631 and was used in the scouting and observation role. Four squadrons were equipped with this type. They saw heavy action and 63.11 losses were the greatest of all Armee de l'Air combat aircraft during the Invasion of France. NOTE: this kit has minor, 'professional' quality subassembly as follows: elevator and wing halves; gear doors to lower wing; clear side windows; nacelles and engine fronts; cockpit tub. There is also minor interior-only paint. The aircraft has been inventoried with all parts present and includes decals and instructions, however NOTE: the display stand is missing.

Aurora Lockheed F-104 Starfighter - (ex Comet), 1/110, 291-60

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$79   

Very rare 1964 Aurora of Canada hardbox issue of the ex-Comet kit. Several small-scale Comet molds (including the F-104, B-47 and B-52) were never reissued for the USA market and for decades I have wondered what happened to them. Aurora had no need for them, as they had already cut their own (superior) small-scale molds for those subjects. Well, the ex-Comet molds went to Aurora of Canada! The slightly less detailed Comet kits were issued there using the same box art as their slightly more detailed Aurora USA counterparts. Simply looking at the box top, you could not tell the difference. However, the contents and instructions gives the secret away. Molded in silver and clear and still retains the original Comet 'teardrop' shaped two-piece stand. Naturally the instructions are completely unique since this is a completely different kit from the Aurora USA Starfighter. This model is 100% correct and has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
