KVZ Mil Mi-10K Aeroflot, 1/100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$36   

Still factory sealed. Early issue in the shorter and narrow box. Large Soviet helicopter with a unique gondola below the cockpit for the crane operator. It is very nice for a KVZ kit with 'good' detail. Molded in white, silver, clear and black. Includes full color large decal sheet with Aeroflot markings. KVZ was the logo used by this East German kit manufacturer from 1969 to 1973. During this time, some fantastic Cold War kits were produced of Russian Aeroflot Airliners and Military Helicopters and Aircraft.

Aurora British SE-5 Scout, 1/48, 103-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$55   

Very rare version. Of all the Aurora SE-5, this one and the 'white' version turns up the least. The hardbox is dated 1956 but shows the original Jim Cox box art with the 1957 oval 'Famous Fighters' logo. The original rectangle 'Northern Lights' logo has been neatly blotted out with a yellow rectangle of the same size. The fact that the price is still 69 cents (as the original issue) means this issue is very early 1957 and predated the 'yellow' box art issue. Molded in gloss olive green and black. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Funaro & Camerlengo 40' 8 Hatch Hinged Door Reefer - NSC Ends (Refrigerator Car) Resin HO Craftsman Kit, 1/87, 5133

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$42   

Very highly detailed modern craftsman kit. The main parts are cast from high definition resin, which is superior in detail to injection moldings. Smaller details are resin, plastic and metal as required. Includes detailed instructions and plans as well as decals for Canadian National. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bags and the parts that were not bagged have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions.

Roseplane Nieuport 27 C.1 - French and RFC WWI Fighter, 1/72

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$24   

Very high quality cast resin kit. Includes all necessary parts and instructions. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions. The Nieuport 27 C.1 served in limited numbers with the French Air Force. 71 French-built machines with Lewis machine guns were sold to the Royal Flying Corps in the summer of 1917. The RFC version is the one modeled. Includes painting color information. Please note that some small parts were not included by Roseplane; you will need to supply these from your spares box. For example, I see all major airframe parts included but do not see any cockpit or prop.

Air Lines Douglas A-20 Attack Bomber - (ex-Frog), 1/72, 9803

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$26   

Still factory sealed. From quality Frog molds. Box art is by the famous Jo Kotula who did 1930s covers for the magazine 'Model Airplane News' and later the Aurora box art of the late 1950s. Air Lines kits are all Frog molds that the Lines Brothers imported to the USA between 1964-1966. The kits, decals and instructions were made in England, then imported to the USA where Testors created the boxes with the colorful trading cards on the back. There are one or two trading cards on each box which show the boxart but not the advertising/logo. Some kits contain a Testors color painting guide also, but it is not specific to any model.

StromBecker North American F-86 Sabre Jet - Flip Top Box Issue, C44-69

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$79   

1950s one-piece 'flip top' box issue. Before plastic kits were introduced, Strombecker was famous as the premier hardwood, preshaped model manufacturer. In the 1940s and 1950s, Strombecker kits were flawlessly engineered but not inexpensive. All wooden parts are quality hardwood (not balsa) and are smooth precarved to final shape - usually only a quick sanding would finish them. When complete it makes an impressive desk top display. Features original glue and sandpaper, clear plastic canopy, special Strombecker 'teardrop' display stand and extensive full color decals. Never started. 100% complete with all parts, decals and detailed plans, instructions. Please NOTE that the box displays better than the 'good-' grade; it is graded as such due to closed corner tears and a 1.5 x 1 missing litho section on the box back.

Comet Fokker D-VII - 16 inch Wingspan - Coke Bottle Issue, N16-29

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$36   

1950s/early 1960s stick-and-tissue flying model. Features quality balsa printwood, strip stock, formed wheels, covering material and full plans. The kit has never been started and is complete. The entire Comet 1950s "N" line included the following (gaps mean there is no kit, at least at that time): N1 Tiger Shark P-40, N2 F-86D Sabre Jet, N4 Globe Swift, N6 Taylorcraft, N8 F-51 Mustang, N9 Helicopter, N11 Ryan Navion, N12 Firefly, N15 Piper Cub, N16 Fokker DVII, N17 Spad, N24 Phantom Fury, N25 Aeronca K (floats) and N26 Stinson SR-7. 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.

Scott Eidson, the famous artist best known for his artwork with Revell, also did UPC box art in the 1960s. All UPC production ended in the 1970s.

Airfix DH Comet 4B BEA, 1/144, SK500

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

$72   

Still factory sealed. 1960s 'Third Logo' issue in excellent condition. Nice 1/144 scale kit of the world's first jet airliner. Includes clear windows, full landing gear, display stand, passenger boarding stairs and BEA decals. The initial Comet Is were in operation long before the 707, which gave the British an incredible post-war lead in the expanding civil aviation market. Just as the Comet was flying high and orders were pouring in from around the world, Comets began to mysteriously fall out of the sky. Everything from lighting to terrorist bombs were blamed. For months the root cause went undiscovered. Then, in a landmark investigation that is considered the first modern post-crash autopsy, it was discovered that the stresses around a small ADF window on the top of the fuselage were causing metal fatigue failure when the fuselage was pressurized. To confirm this, a Comet I was placed in a water tank and subjected to pressurization stresses. After some time, a dramatic failure occurred. Then parts of a crashed Comet were pulled from underwater proving once and for all that this was the root cause.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$79

Kit features cockpit and cabin clear windows and full landing gear and a 'tanker' rear end and flying boom (although the box art does not show it). Molded in gloss gray and clear.
