Aurora Piasecki H-25A Army Mule - US Air Force / Army / Navy / Marines, 1/48, 502-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

$225   

Very rare "Northern Lights' logo first issue from 1956. Even rarer in amazing, investment-grade 'Near Mint+' condition. The box has factory-new gloss and color, four solid corners, no stains, creases, tears or fading. It has no price tags (or marks from any) and incredibly it even missed the factory tape machine - there is no tape and no marks or stains from tape. Very, very light wear is the only flaw. Earlier in the 1950s a company called 'Helicopters for Industry' created a line of large early kits. In 1956 Aurora bought the molds and quickly reissued these models with new box artwork. Features cockpit seats, control sticks and instrument panel, full landing gear and decals for all four versions listed. Molded in the correct high-gloss olive drab and clear plastic. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Revell Sikorsky S-55 - Pre 'S' Issue, 1/48, H214-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$145   

1955 Pre-S hardbox issue with the box in 'Excellent+' condition and artwork by Richard Kishady. Features detailed cockpit and two pilots, rotating main and tail rotors, detailed engine and optional position clam-shell nose doors. Includes the famous clear 'New Revelving Swivel Base." Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Decals, instructions, box and stand are all correct for this issue and the parts are 100% complete but NOTE: the olive drab plastic is not high gloss. That could mean that these parts were made near the end of this production run or are from the Great Britain issue. The instructions are intact but have a stain and are only 'good.' Decals are flat and excellent with only typical age yellowing as the only flaw

Strombecker Convair Manned Lunar Reconnaissance Vehicle - by Krafft Ehricke, 1/91, D37-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$215   

Very rare 1950s kit. Strombecker issued a series of exotic space craft from Convair designer Krafft Ehricke and the Disney 'Man in Space' series between 1954 and 1956. This is the one that has not been reissued, making it hard to find. Large and interesting model makes an idea display alone or with the other spacecraft in this series. The spaceship has never been started but NOTE: the two stand arm halves are assembled. There is no other assembly. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Decals are in 'very good' condition and the instructions are in amazing 'near mint' condition. Please note that the box displays much better than the 'very good+' grade but is rated as such because there is clear tape on the four sides where someone 'resealed' it in the past. This kit must be shipped insured.

Aurora Regulus II Guided Missile - With Mobile Launching Platform, 1/48, 378-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$285   

Rare and even rarer in this condition. This kit was factory sealed but the seal recently split across the back - so I opened it up to do a 100% inventory and slid the seal back on. Inside, the kit is exactly as it left the factory - never started, with the red parts still in a factory sealed clear bag and with all other parts inventoried 100% complete, including 'excellent+++' decals and instructions. 1958 release of this famous kit featuring classic Jo Kotula boxart. The large 1/48 scale missile comes with a fully operational scale launcher. Please note this is a true first issue because there is no Parents' Magazine' printed logo or the golden sticker. The model features a well detailed missile with lower booster and the mobile launcher with good suspension detail, valves boxes and covers, tow bar, servicing and access platforms with railings, elevating main pad and three figures. Molded in the correct deep gloss red, silver and dark blue plastic. Please note that this kit displays better than the 'excellent' box grade but is rated as such because long crease on part of the lower long box side. This kit must be shipped insured. The Aurora "Missile Line" is legendary. In the late 1950s, the first missile model kits sold briskly, so Aurora and Revell both planned extensive lines. However, the missile modeling craze disappeared as quickly as it started. Models that were in the works were canceled or completed if they were far enough along. Those that were completed were fine efforts but sold poorly and had very short lives, making them rare collector items today.
