Aurora Douglas M2 Mailplane - (M-2), 1/48, 111-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$62   

First issue with classic Joe Kotula artwork dated 1957. The kit is a very good depiction of this rare mail plane and is molded in a beautiful burgundy, black and clear. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. This aircraft has a fascinating history. From the internet: The United States Post Office had been running the air mail service since 1918 mainly using variants of the de Havilland DH.4 biplane. In 1925, it decided to modernize and placed an order with Douglas for a replacement aircraft based on the Douglas O-2 observation biplane. The company modified an O-2 by covering over the forward cockpit to make a mail compartment and moving the pilot into what had been the observer's cockpit. The aircraft was designated the DAM-1 (Douglas Air-Mail-One) but this was soon shortened to M-1. The M-1 used the same Liberty engine as the DH.4, which was available in large numbers. Small modifications were made to the exhaust system to keep fumes away from the pilot and the design was considered a success, but was not ordered into production. When the Contract Air Mail (CAM) routes were introduced, the newly formed Western Air Express Company (later Western Airlines) ordered six mailplanes with the designation M-2. The main change from the M-1 was that the tunnel radiator was replaced with a frontal type. It also had the provision to carry a passenger instead of mail in the front cockpit. Just before Western Air Express introduced the aircraft into service (in April 1926 from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City), the Post Office ordered 50 aircraft designated M-3 for its major route network. The M-3 had only detailed differences from the M-2.

Aurora Boeing B-29 Superfortress, 1/76, 372-350

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

$150   

Still factory sealed. Rare and even rarer in this condition. Aurora of Canada issue is dated 1964 and this issue retaining the same artwork as the 1956 issue. This kit has arguably the most dramatic and fanciful B-29 composition from the 'Golden Era' of modeling. Note the square 'Northern Lights' logo has been replaced with the Aurora sunburst oval logo. There is no fading or stains, tape or price tags, but there is light crease along the upper left side. Responding to market information that boys wanted larger kits, Aurora introduced the B-26 followed by the B-29 and B-25, all of which sold well for many years- almost right up until the end.

Lindberg Russian Jet Fighter Mig-19 With Tow Tractor - Cellovision Issue, 1/48, 561-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG++

$94   

Very rare. This is a factory sealed 1950s Cellovision issue. The clear window on the back is intact and the trading card is in 'Near Mint+' condition. Amazingly, the box is in 'very good++' condition. These Cellovision boxes were very thin and prone to damage; this one lived a charmed life. This is a large scale (1/48) 'theoretical' Mig-19. It was removed from production well before it's time because it soon became obvious that this aircraft never existed in this configuration. However, Aurora made one almost just like it; so it is believed that they both used the same faulty magazine drawing as the basis for both models. Includes a very well detailed tow tractor with driver. The aircraft is molded in silver and the tractor in yellow.

Please note, the instructions have the circle logo and the rectangular logo, which was not uncommon for early Lindberg kits. This kit has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Paul Lindberg created plans for stick and tissue flying models that were published in popular modeling magazines in the 1930s. During this time, he marketed wooden flying kits, asking builders to request that your local dealer carry "The Lindberg Line" of models. When plastic kits first appeared, Paul Lindberg and a Mr. Olsen founded O-Lin models, purchased the unsuccessful Varney molds for the Fleet Sub, PT Boat, LST and PT-17. After mold modification, they entered production and quickly cut new molds such as the P-80, Seabee and more. The association with Mr. Olsen did not last long, and Paul Lindberg took over or bought out the molds, thus starting the famous plastic "Lindberg Line". The first box art was simply carry over from O-Lin. Early O-Lin artwork was simple and two -color. However, Ray Gaedke did some late O-Lin boxes such as the Corsair, which was also used by Lindberg. Gaedke artwork was colorful and bold, and Paul Lindberg wasted no time in having Gaedke make the new artwork for the Lindberg Line.

His plans appeared in Popular Aviation magazine and he soon made a name for himself. When injection molding showed the way to increased kit sales in the late 1940s/early 1950s, he quickly teamed up with Mr. Olsen to create 'O-lin' models. Ray Gaedke was one the the early artists for O-lin, and he help pioneer dramatic and colorful box artwork. In the early 1950s Paul Lindberg was running the company and had the logo changed to his name. The first logo was circular, with 'Lindberg' in middle and 'Products' 'Incorporated' arched across the top and bottom. The second logo is the 'Yellow Rectangle' that is on this kit. Ray Gadke continued his bold and colorful artwork for Lindberg and did this F-80C boxart as well.
