Aurora Russian Mig-19, 1/48, 66-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc-

$175   

Still factory sealed but the seal has shrunk and drawn the box top slightly concave. Very rare and especially in sealed condition. The seal is completely intact with no splits. Jo Kotula painted this amazing box art for the 1958 issue. Although this box has a 1958 copyright date, this issue is actually later, from the mid 1960s. Judging from the '100' price extension, this is close to or the final issue of this kit by Aurora.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$169   

Sale Pending
Email for availability.

Still factory sealed. Rare and even rarer in this condition. Aurora USA issue retains the same artwork as the 1956 issue. From the logo style, this example dates from about 1965, although the copyright date for the artwork still says 1956. This kit has arguably the most dramatic and fanciful B-29 composition from the 'Golden Era' of modeling box art. Note the square 'Northern Lights' logo has been replaced with the Aurora sunburst oval logo. There are no seal splits, fading or stains, tape or price tags, but there is very light crease at top center. 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.

Monogram Phantom Huey UH-1B Chopper Motorized with Sound, 1/24, PA226

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$659   

SALE!! Rare. First issue dated 1969. Large and completely transparent with a 20 inch long fuselage and nearly 2 foot rotor diameter. Well detailed with 184 parts and structural members and full internal detail. Features complete cockpit, pilot and co-pilot figures, full cabin, opening cabin door, inner fuselage framing, detailed engine and more. In the display base with the batteries is an electric motor which turns the main and tail rotors while the sound unit makes "chop-chop" sound that varies correctly with main rotor speed. To minimize painting, the kit is molded in clear, zinc chromate green, black, chrome plate, gray, olive drab and flexible black/gray ammo belts. The clear fuselage halves have no breaks or cracks, they are mint. The kit has never been started. Inside, the original red cardboard presentation material is complete and in 'excellent+' condition. All parts have been inventoried 100% complete including motor, hardware, wire, decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the decals have bug damage to the backing paper and some transfers have damage also; I have included two sets of excellent reproduction decals with complete instructions: one on clear decal paper and the other on white decal paper. The Phantom Huey box tops are thin, fragile and easily damaged. This one is no exception- it is 99+% complete, but I have correctly repaired two split corners and two closed tears (on the short sides) from the inside, using cardstock and book binding glue. The box bottom has three closed split corners. NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured.
