ESCI F-104 Red Baron - N104RB Greenamyer(CF-104), 1/72, 9037

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$20   

From 1983. NOTE: builder only, please read carefully. Hard to find version of the famous record holding civil aircraft. Formerly a Canadian Starfighter, Darryl Greenamyer bought the aircraft and tried for the new low altitude closed circuit speed record. His first attempt was successful but not 'legal' - the ground monitoring equipment had failed. The second run was successful also, but the aircraft was destroyed. NOTE: this kit has minor and 'professional' quality sub assembly - the two exhaust parts are assembled and the intake fences are glued to the cockpit halves. There is no other assembly and zero painting. Inventoried and NOTE: missing cockpit tub and control stick. Otherwise includes all other parts, large and 'near mint' condition decals and instructions.

Aurora-KB Fokker E-V (D-VIII) - Polish Air Force, 1/48, 1135-170

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$48   

1972 issue with revised molds and better quality. Includes pilot, ground crewman and battle terrain base. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. The aircraft represented in this kit fought with the Polish Air Force against the Ukranian forces in 1919 but by that point it was a D-VIII. The Fokker E.V was a fantastic performer and the result of a longtime Fokker development, the cantilever wing. In addition to greatly reducing drag, a properly built cantilever wing is very light and strong. This wing was first used on prototype V17 and then on V28 which took part in the Second Fight Competition (July 6-14 1918) where the most experienced German front line pilots chose new fighters for late war service. V28 was chosen for it's excellent flying properties and 200 of the production aircraft, known as the Fokker E.V, were ordered. Over 289 aircraft were delivery. The E.V began front line service on August 5, 1918; Lt. Emil Rolff of Jasta 6 reported an aerial victory on August 17. However, the day before, an E.V suffered catastrophic wing failure. Two days later, the same failure cost Lt. Rolff his life. All E.Vs were immediately grounded. A detailed investigation showed that there were fatal defects in the wing assembly caused by slack manufacturing processes. Although it was not his fault, Fokker took this opportunity to re-design and strengthen the wing. Existing E.V aircraft received new wings and newly built aircraft were designated D.VIII. Modified aircraft made it back to the front in November, too late for service. However, the aircraft saw active service after that war with the Freikorps air units, the Polish Air Force against Russia, the Dutch Air Force and an unspecified number went to France and the USA.

Very rare "Northern Lights' logo first issue from 1956. Even rarer in amazing, investment-grade 'Near Mint+' condition.

There are one or two trading cards on each box which show the boxart but not the advertising/logo. Some kits contain a Testors color painting guide also, but it is not specific to any model.
