Aurora Convair VR XFY-1 Pogo, 1/48, 60

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$155   

1955 hardbox design. Please note the early Aurora rectangular logo, which was used from about 1953 to 1955. However, the factory has blacked out all the price extensions, so this one may be from around 1957/58. Rare, large scale model features working counter-rotating props and is molded in gloss silver and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Funaro & Camerlengo D&RGW Short Wood Caboose With Decal and Trucks - Resin HO Craftsman Kit, 1/87, 1001

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$24   

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 D&RGW. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes two sheets of decals and instructions.

Timberline Newpaper Office - HO Scale Craftsman kit, 1/87, 118

Revell Douglas AD-6 Skyraider (AH-1) Navy Attack Aircraft - 'S' Issue, 1/40, H269-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$195   

Very rare original issue from 1959. The box states "So Realistic It Does Everything But Fly!" and it holds to that promise! The model is packed with action features; wings fold, dive brakes operate, arresting hook moves, canopy slides to show full cockpit, landing gear retracts and cowling comes off to show fully detailed engine. The most interesting item is the landing gear retract and extension mechanism. It works through a very complicated gear system that is operated from a central point. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. NOTE: two very fine push rods are neatly broken from the engine front, which is common. They are both included so you can repair them. The box displays better than "Excellent" but is graded as such as there is moderate shelf/storage wear on one long side and average wear on the the other three sides.

Revell Bell UH-1 Huey Attack Helicopter, 1/32, H259

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG++

$110   

Still factory sealed but the seal has split on the top and the shrinking seal has drawn the box concave as shown. 1970 release. Large well detailed kit featuring 18 inch rotor span, detailed Lycoming T53 Jet Engine with removable cowling, highly detailed interior and cockpit with opening cabin doors, moving rotors and weapons system with SS-11 Missiles, M-6 Machine Guns, 7.62 MM Machine Guns and M-6 Guns with Rocket Pods. Includes pilot and gunner figure and US Army First Air Cavalry markings.

Aurora Albatross D-3 - (Albatros DIII), 1/48, 104-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$59   

Rare. Please note, this is a 'Famous Fighters' logo, first box art issue kit WITHOUT the Parents' Magazine Logo and a 69 cent price extension. This is the first time I have seen a FF original art version with no PM logo with a 69 cent price extension. Just when you think you have Aurora figured out, another variation comes along! That would make this the true third issue of this kit - only three issues have the 69 cent extension and are from 1956 and 1957. This kit has not been factory overstamped to 79 and still shows 69 on both sides The kit is molded in gloss dark green and black. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The decals are 'excellent' and the instructions are near mint. Please NOTE that the box only grades 'good.' The box has good color, is very solid (including all four corners) and has no fading but there is the obvious short litho tear under the logo on the box top. Additionally, there is general wear as shown and a short piece of masking tape on each of the two long sides.

Aurora The Barnstormers Customizing Kit DH-4 and JN-4 Jenny, 1/48, 200-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$169   

Rare one-and-only 1960 issue that contains both the DH-4 and Curtis JN-4 Jenny. Aurora really went out of the way to make this a special kit; however, it did not sell well and was retired after one year. Features completely new box artwork, a DH-4 molded in gloss dark green and black, the JN-4 molded in gloss bright yellow and black, great custom decal sheets for both aircraft and special 'Barnstormer' instructions for each aircraft. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts present and includes decals and instructions. Instructions are both in 'excellent+' condition and the decal sheets are both completely flat (no rolling) with typical age yellowing as the only flaw.

Aurora British SE-5 Scout, 1/48, 103-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$79   

Rare box art version and in very nice condition with good color, four solid corners, no fading, tears, tags, tape or marks from either. Light, general even wear is the only flaw. Hardbox is dated 1960 and it appears that this design was only issued for a few years at the most. There are two variations of this rare box - one with the Parents' Magazine mark and one without. The one without shows up the least, and that is this example. Molded in gloss olive drab and black. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Aurora Sopwith Triplane Black Maria, 1/48, 100-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$59   

True first issue dated 1963 and with a 79 cent price extension to the kit number. Jo Kotula did the amazing artwork. This early issue has 'Famous Fighters' in the four logos on the box sides. Nicely done kit for that time with fair cockpit and engine detail, ground base, pilot figure and mechanic. Molded in gloss black. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please note, the box has wear as shown and is graded only 'good.'

Hawk Vickers Viscount Jet-Prop Capital Airlines With Capital Viscount Flyer - Picture Gallery Issue, 1/96, 503

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$85   

Rare model of the first commercial turboprop airliner, and it includes the rare Capital Airlines one page "The Jet Prop Viscount' advertising sheet. The box displays beautifully and is in 'Excellent' condition with as new color and gloss, four solid corners, no tape and no price tags, no fading and no litho tears. Light general wear and a very light stain on the lower part of one long side are the only flaws. Includes passenger boarding ramp and Capital airlines decals in 'excellent+' condition with light age yellowing as the only flaw. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The box top would grade even higher than 'excellent++' but is graded as such because there is a very light stain on the top long side.

Lindberg F7U-1 Cutlass - (F7U1), 1/48, 510-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$89   

1956 or '57 Gaedke artwork with three aircraft and the carrier. The box top has like new color and gloss, four solid corners, no repairs, no price tags, no fading and no litho tears. General and even light wear are the only flaws. The model is molded in a stunning, high-gloss dark blue and clear plastic and includes decals for the box art aircraft including red and white checkerboards for the rudders. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. Dating early Lindberg kits is problematic to a near complete lack of release information; early catalogs normally do not have dates, and there are no dates on early boxes or instructions & decals. However, by records kept when the kits were purchased new, we know this kit was issued either in 1956 or 1957. The early part number of '10' after the 5 would support such an early date, as Lindberg initially used sequential numbers. Please note that the instructions for this kit contain multiple factory mistakes! The pilot sits on a seat, not the 'board' shown in the instructions. The pitot tube is not even shown on the assembly page, but is present with the kit.

Athearn Rock Island F-7A and F-7B Freight Locomotives Genesis DCC Quick Plug Equipped - HO Scale, 1/87, G22084

Metal and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$145   

Superbly detailed Genesis issue powered A and B locomotives in excellent condition. Judging from the very slight wheel wear, these were run perhaps once or twice. There are no broken parts and each engine is 100% complete. I hesitate to call anything mint, so I will grade them both as 'near mint' condition. Not perfect, but close. Includes all three factory boxes (a box for each locomotive and the external sleeve for both those boxes), all the original factory plastic and dark gray foam packing and the following paperwork: (2) "FlyWheel Drive F-Unit" exploded diagrams and parts sheet and (2) "Athearn News" sign up sheets. I have no way to test these locomotives so they are sold as-is.

Athearn Rock Island Passenger F-7A and F-7B Locomotives Genesis - HO Scale, 1/87, G1507

Metal and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$125   

Superbly detailed Genesis issue powered A and B locomotives. Judging from the very slight wheel wear, these were run perhaps three or four times BUT they were stored for a time 'on the track' or on a shelf (not in the factory boxes). As a result, the undersides are like new but the tops are dusty. They are 100% complete but both horns are broken off the "A" unit. The horns are present so you can repair them. Includes all three factory boxes (a box for each locomotive and the external sleeve for both those boxes), all the original factory dark gray foam packing material as well as (2) "F Series Diesel Locomotive Owners Guide" with an exploded diagrams on the back. I have no way to test these locomotives so they are sold as-is.

Aurora Sopwith Triplane Black Maria, 1/48, 100-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$54   

Dated 1963 but it more likely from 1965/66 due to the 100 price extension and lack of 'Famous Fighters' in the box side logos. Jo Kotula did the stunning box artwork. Nicely done kit for that time with fair cockpit and engine detail, ground base, pilot figure and mechanic. Molded in black. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please note, the box has wear as shown and is graded only 'good-.'
