Aurora P-51 Mustang Screwdriver Issue, 1/27, 377-350

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$210   

1969 hardbox issue. This kit was designed as a gas powered flying model. However, Aurora discontinued the gas powered line very shortly after introduction due to returns and liability issues. Since the mold investment was already made, Aurora marketed these kits as large scale static models. For example, the 1/32 scale B-25 was issued in Gas U-Control and then static - but the P-51 may have only been issued in static. Never started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed clear bag. The other parts have been inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.

AMT 1959 Ford Thunderbird Convertible Friction Drive Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$42   

Original dealer promotional model in nice condition. It is 100% complete and has the original metal black-painted chassis with a working friction motor. This is a one-owner model that has always been adult owned. The tires are factory new - it has never been played with and never exposed to smoke. The body is excellent and is almost warp-free; the warping is mild at the rocker panels (they are still flexible and push in easily). The paint is in nice condition (with light foxing) as is the chrome. Clear is very nice. Some of the fine trim (door handles etc) has been painted to 'professional' quality; it is good enough to pass for factory paint.

Jo-Han 1960 Plymouth Station Wagon Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$49   

Rare friction-drive promotional model. This is an one-adult owned model and has never been played with. It has been stored in a box and never seen light or smoke- the plastic is glossy and clean as new. The body is amazing condition for this type of plastic. The factory silver paint on the top and the green interior paint is mint with zero wear. The body has very little warping. Oddly, it is the interior which is warped but that is the easiest part to fix. The clear has the typical aging; however, I have a new Jo-Han 1960 Plymouth windshield that I am including with this promo - it is a straight-forward replacement. The whitewalls are exceptional, and there is no wear at all on the tires. Strangely, there is a zone of copper spraypaint on the center of the underside. That is the only unusual thing. She is certainly not perfect, with the new windshield installed she will be about as nice as you can get for an all-original, rare promo.

Guillows Curtiss P-40 Warhawk - 16 inch Wingspan Rubber Powered Balsa Wood Kit, 501

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$22   

From the 1960s. One of a very popular 16.5 inch wingspan series of World War 2 stick and tissue flying kits. Includes die cut balsa parts, vacuform nose, wheels, plastic propeller, hardware, vacuform canopy, colored tissue, insignia and full size plans with detailed building instructions. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Guillow's founder, Paul K. Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.
