Comet Boeing 707 Jetliner 367-80 Dash 80, 1/300, PL16-29

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$55   

Very rare. Civil version of the 707 prototype. In the 1950s Comet made a beautiful line of small scale aircraft and missile models with colorful boxes. When Comet went out of business, these molds saw action for years with Aurora. This is the one-piece flip up box of the '707 - Dash 80.' And it is a nice kit of the famous prototype, the world's first commercially-successful airliner. Well molded with fine recessed panel lines in 'In-Flight' configuration with stand and prototype decals. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Aurora Boeing B-52 Stratofortress, 1/270, 494-49

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$145   

Very rare and even rarer in this condition. First issue and with the one-year only rectangular logo. Dramatic Jo Kotula box art with 1956 date. The box is the finest I have seen. It has like-new color and gloss, four solid corners, no repairs, no tape or tape marks, no tags or tag marks, no fading, and no tear or missing litho. The only flaws are the light edge and corner wear shown at the bottom right and other (even lighter) shelf wear that probably not even visible in the photo. Molded in correct silver and clear with correct rectangular clear stand. A nice kit for that time, it features full centerline landing gear and outrigger struts and gear doors as well as clear cockpit canopy, outboard slipper fuel tanks, display stand and decals. It has the correct early rectangle-base clear Aurora stand, which is also shown on the instructions. Molded in the correct gloss silver and clear. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Instructions are mint and the decals are 'near mint.' It is interesting to note that this is not a reissue of the Comet molds - the two models are not even close to the same size or scale. This kit is original to Aurora, was made before Aurora acquired the Comet molds and also varies in a great many details. It appears that Aurora never even re-issued the Comet B-52, probably because they had a superior model already in the same low price range.

Revell 1903 Model A Ford Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H36

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Mint

$36   

1952 first issue with the box in investment-grade condition - but the kit is NOT perfect inside due to plastic warping. This is old hobby shop stock that has never been offered for retail sale until now. First issue. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and instructions present but NOTE: the krinkle bag disintegrated. NOTE: the parts are heavily warped, which can happen with this early type of plastic. One wheels has welded to the instructions. The instructions are graded 'fair.' Before the 1950s 'model building' never made the top 10 list of boy's activities. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream. Shortly after the turn of the century, many dedicated modelers built flying or static airplanes, ship, train, automotive or other subjects. Basic kits existed, but the majority of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s. The phenomenon of the Revell/Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' car kits was a significant force in proving that model building as a hobby could have mass appeal, provided that the kits were easy enough to build and finish. These 1/32 scale vehicles could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real car. The Highway Pioneers series lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys.

Heller Corsair 16th and 17th Century Fisherman - Trader / Warship during the Mediterranean 'Race War', 1/150, 80616

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$32   

Large scale high quality kit of a unique subject. Very well detailed and molded full hull kit. Features detailed deck and fittings, cannons, vac sails, full rigging instructions, rigging material and display stand. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. The Corsair originated in the Mediterranean during the 16th Century. Originally designed for trade and fishing, it proved to have such high speed and adaptability that is was used as a warship. Usual war load was four deck cannons and between four and six blunderbusses. It appeared from time to time in many navies into the 17th century, particularly during the Revolution and the 'Empire' days. The Corsair was typical of the trade war ships that roamed the Mediterranean from Morocco, Spain, Italy or France.

MPM Kawanishi N1K1 'Shinden' George, 1/72, 72123

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$16   

Kit features fine, all recessed panel line detail, many photoetched parts and decals for four aircraft. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. During construction of the NiK1 Kyofu (Strong Wind) float plane, the design team at Kawanishi did a study of converting that aircraft to a land-based fighter. The design seemed very promising, but the Japanese Navy rejected it. Kawanishi decided to privately fund the building of prototypes regardless. The aircraft flew and flew well, but the navy was unimpressed as they ordered the J2M Raiden into production. Kawanishi, undaunted, built four additional prototypes. The IJN was finally won over, and funds were released to produce the fighter. Production problems were solved in time for the Shiden (Violet Lightning) to see action before the end of the war, but not in significant numbers to change the tide. The Shiden was an excellent aircraft, but a modified version, NiK2-J may have been the finest Japanese Naval fighters of the war.
