Aurora Lockheed F-90 1st Brooklyn Issue, 1/48, 33

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

Sold   

In the early 1950s Aurora was making children's toys. Since they were always looking for new avenues of business, the three founders were interested in the new fad of 'plastic models'. They were shown the Hawk F-90 and F9F kits in 1/48, and the rest is history. Aurora copied the F9F and F-90 to issue their very first plastic kits. The boxes were two color one-piece flip top boxes of very thin cardboard; the damaged so easily that the kits were immediately reissued in the more familiar 'hardbox' of a litho slick glued to heavy cardboard. This kit is a 100% original issue. The model is molded in the correct high-gloss medium grey with a clear square "Brooklyn" stand, stand arm and canopy. The model does not rivet detail, nor was it molded with landing gear or missiles. The entire kit is 15 parts including the stand and stand arm. The instructions are the correct early small Brooklyn version with some minor bug damage on the right edge. Decals are correctly marked "The Tatem Company" and are in excellent condition with only a minor curl and very little yellow. The box is intact but has certainly seen better days. As is typical with this issue, there are tears, creases and edge wear as shown. The box has been internally reinforced to prevent further decay, but it still must be handled with care. In summary, a 100% correct, never started and complete kit for the advanced collector of Aurora or military aircraft models.

ITC Halibut SSGN 587 Electric Powered Diving Motorized Submarine (Regulus Sub), 1/175, 3660-998

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

Sold   

This model is the zenith of the ITC Design and Engineering Team, and maybe of all operational plastic model kits. This kit is not only rare but is considered the most complicated operating model ever produced. The large 24.75 inch long model sails from the power of a large electric motor driving twin geared propellers. It changes direction, dives, surfaces, and a Regulus II missile comes out of the hanger and launches...all automatically. The engineering on this kit is fantastic and was a major break-through in it's day (about 1960). The high price and difficulties that youngsters had with assembly/operation made for a short production run. The model worked, and did work well, but was certainly not a toy for inexperienced model builders. This kit is unusual in that it did not have the common 'Seen on TV Maverick' sticker on the box top. Inside, the kit is in mint condition. All plastic parts except the main hull 1/2s are still sealed in the factory bags (the hull halves were never sealed). The blue display cardboard is all complete and in excellent condition. The plastic parts bags are still factory stapled to the Instructions and stickers are near mint and still white. NOTE: The box is only fair. The very top of the box displays VG++, but one side corner is missing a 2 inch section; another side corner is missing a 4 inch section.
