Plastic Model Kit
Very rare item for the advanced collector. This item was from the estate of Dave Cockrum, the world-famous Aurora box artist, sculpture and kit designer. However, he is even more famous for his long history with DC and Marvel Comics. When working at Aurora, Dave had access to 'The Room'. In it were test shots from almost every Aurora kit ever made; employees were welcome to come in and take a kit when they pleased. This Flying Sub came from that room. It is a rare test shot molded in the usual test shot color - white- and includes the clear parts. Although the kit is complete, it does not have a box or instructions like most all test shots.

Includes instructions. Ford created the Lincoln Futura as a concept car to promote Lincoln. The designers were Ford lead stylists John Jajjar and Bill Schmidt. Unlike many concept cars, this one was fully operational. The basis of the chassis was the Continental Mark II and she was powered by a 368 cubic inch Lincoln engine and powertrain. The car was hand built by Ghia iin Italy and originally cost $250,000, or about $2.3 million in modern USD. The car was a big success for Ford and brought significant recognition in toys, movies and the show circuit. It was first displayed in 1955. When Ford was done, they sold the car to George Barris for $1. Because it was never titled and could not insured, Barris parked it behind the shop. However, in 1966 Barris was asked to make a car for the Batman TV series. Dean Jefferies was originally contracted with, but he could not make the car in time. Barris thought the Futura would make a fine basis for the Batmobile, and so it did. Barris always retained ownership of the car, leasing it to the studio for filming. In 2013 he sold the car to a collector for 4.62 Million US Dollars.

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.

This is one of Renewal's famous Aeroskin kits in a rare 1/48 release that features markings for the aircraft of the famous Lanoe Hawker and very realistic artwork of the last moments of Lanoe's final battle with the Red Baron. The model has an injection molded inner structure of ribs and stringers like a real aircraft, then the modeler covers it with provided authentic pre-colored Aeroskin fabric. There is no painting needed as elaborate finishes are printed directly on the Aeroskin covering. This results a very realistic and colorful model. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes Aeroskin and instructions. Aeroskin is in superb 'near mint' condition. There is no glue included, but any brush-one liquid cement (like Tamiya) will work for attaching the Aeroskin to the plastic parts.

Very rare promotional model of the 'Safeguard' ABM Missile Spartan. The Sprint and Spartan pair made up the missiles of this Anti-Ballistic Missile system with Spartan handling the longer ranges. The system was made operational on October 1 1975 and Congress voted to shut it down less than 24 hours later on October 2 1975. Condition is exceptional. Missile is NM with a tiny chip out of one fin and very slight wear. The base is NM also. Missile measures 17 inches long. There are no touch ups/repair and no cracks. Decal is near mint also on base. Base says 'Spartan - McDonnell Douglas - McDonnell Douglas Astronautics Company'. Insurance required on shipping. NOTE: This model was issued with two bases. One had two pins to hold the missile. The other is the cradle pictured. This missile has the two pin holes - so it was either left over stock and put on the new base or found it's way to the newer base over the years.
