Aurora Gotha Bomber G-V - Abare Issue - (GV), 1/48, 126-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+


Ross Abare issue Gotha in amazing investment-grade, 'Near Mint' condition. Mr. Abare, a rare kits dealer in the earliest days of the hobby, contracted with Aurora to produce a copy of the original 1958 kit. However, Aurora had the printers use the mid 1960s oval logo without the 'Famous Fighters' in the border- thus forever separating the Abare issue from the original issue. Mr. Abare was reportedly quite upset, as he wanted exact copies. Molded in deep burgundy and black plastic. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Revell F-84F Thunderstreak - Pre 'S' Issue, 1/54, H215-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+


Pre 'S' first issue dated 1955, which is considered the 'Golden Age' of box artwork. From this superb example it is easy to see why the 'S' and Pre-'S' kits are so collectible.

Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Maircraft Douglas SBD-3 Dauntless, 1/48, H-8

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair


From the 1940s. Features 3D cut fuselage, nicely 2D cut wings and tail feathers, stock wood, printwood, fully formed turned wheels and engine nacelle, full color decals (which are water stained) and excellent full-sized plans. Never started and complete. Maircraft was originally founded in the early or mid 1930s by Gordon Christoph and went by the name Aircraft Model Company. The company produced a typical line of solid 'profile cut' kits that required the usual high talent levels for carving and finishing. A former Comet Model Airplane & Supply Co. salesman, Jack Mair, bought the company in the early 1940s and renamed it Maircraft. This company was one of the handful of solid kit producers who issued models in a consistent 1/48 scale during the 1930s and 1940s (others included Hawk and Dyna-Model). This lead to one of the most desirable and rare model kits ever produced in the USA - the wood/plastic 1/48 United DC-3 model issued immediately after World War 2. Other than the P-61 and a few other Maircraft offerings, most were simple kits that sold for the low price of about 35 cents and gave the owners many hours of pleasurable work.

These molds have seen reissues by Otaki, Revell and Gunze.

Hillcrest US Army 1909 Wright Biplane - World's First Military Aircraft, 1/65

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Very rare. Hillcrest was one of the pioneers among American plastic model kit manufacturers. Two kits are known to exist - this one and the Curtiss Pusher. There may have been a Bleriot XI but this is unconfirmed. Model Plastic Products of Hollywood, California was the parent company and they first issued the two kits under that name in 1951. In 1952 the Hillcrest name was used. The kits were a radical departure from other kits of the day that required tedious building and finishing of wood parts. For this reason Hillcrest advertised "prefabricated" and "assembly time 3 to 6 hours" on the box least they be mistaken for traditional wooden kits. The kit has injection molded main parts for the internal framework of the actual aircraft. The small cello bag is still sealed and contains fine the details such as the engine, tank and more. The framework is to be covered in tissue which is supplied along with rigging material. The instructions have a very nice three view drawing, parts diagram and written instructions. Never started and complete. All of the special internal cardboard that holds the parts and sealed packed is intact and in very good condition. The outer box is complete and the top flap is nice as shown, but overall the box is only 'good' with some clear tape on torn corners and some general deforming of the box as shown. This aircraft, called a "Flyer" by the Wrights, was built for the US Army about five years after the first Kitty Hawk aircraft. The aircraft incorporated many improvements and was built of very high quality hickory, ash and spruce. Wings were two-spar construction with built-up ribs and wire trailing edges. The airfoil had a camber-cord ratio of 1 to 20 and both sides were covered by a rubberized fabric. This aircraft had the doubtful distinction of having the first fatal air crash. A propeller cracked and tore the rudder loose, killing Lt. Selfridge while seriously injuring Orville Wright.

Comet Convair B-58 Hustler, 1/96, PL-802-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+


Rare model from the late 1950s. This is the larger of the two Comet issues in the two piece hardbox. Very nicely molded and detailed for that time with all recessed panel lines, full landing gear, clear canopy, pilot figure, 'The Pod' and more. Includes a large Comet 'Teardrop' display stand. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including all pieces, decals and instructions.

Lincoln PBY-5A Catalina - Bagged, 1/110

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed


Very, very rare. Still factory staple sealed; this is a bagged kit with the factory paper header. Until now this kit was not known to exist; there is no mention of it in Burn's guide or anywhere on the internet. The model features recessed and raised surface detail, clear blisters, windows and cockpit window, retracting floats and more. There is a "Revell 'S' Style" base (but it's not the Revell base). What is more puzzling is that the artwork on the paper header is a copy of the Aurora first-issue PBY artwork. Please note that the header is damaged and missing some of the right hand section as shown.

Revell Convair F-106A Delta Dart Whip Fly with Whistle and Streamers, 1/67, H159-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++


Very rare 1961 issue in the Whip-Fly 'Master Modeler' series. Model even includes the F-106 trading stamp and Master Modeler application form. This issue is based on the 1950s F-106 "S" kit. The Delta Dart Whip Fly comes with USAF decals, flight ballast, handle, 12 feet of control line, control ring, colorful streamers for the jet engine and a underside pod which is a in-flight whistle! Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The short-lived Whip-Fly series seemed like a good idea...at first. It was quickly discontinued when Revell discovered that heavily weighted models with sharply pointed noses rotating in a 24 foot diameter circle at very high speeds might not be safe.

PMC 1956 Chevrolet Belair Station Wagon Promo And Bank, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Original dealer promotional model from 1956. The color is Adobe Beige / Sierra Gold. It is in unusually good condition and seems to have always been adult owned. There is only a slight bit of body warping which is very rare. There are no cracks, splits, repairs or any body damage. The tires show no tread wear so it has not been played with. The condition of the paint is 'excellent' as is the colored plastic; there is excellent gloss and color. The chrome is in amazing 'near mint' condition which is also rare. The green-tinted clear 'glass' is excellent all around. This promo is a bank; there is a metal bezel on the bottom that says "To Help You Save For a Rainy Day...Or Help You Buy Your New Chevrolet." There is a coin slot and a lock also, but there is no key. The box is not original.
