Microscale YF-102 (Prototype F-102 Delta Dagger) - BAGGED - (ex Allyn), 1/60, MS4-4

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box

$49   

NOTE: bagged kit. There is no box; the box is shown for reference only. This model is from ex-Allyn Factory Desktop model molds, which were usually factory assembled and painted then given to test pilots, contractors and Navy decision makers. Rare kit showing the original subsonic configuration of the prototype F-102 before the Area Rule 'Coke Bottle' fuselage. With two decal sheets and stand. Aircraft includes clear canopy, decals, in-flight configuration and includes display stand that can display your model in almost any flight attitude desired. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried and NOTE: missing the two wing boundary layer fences. Very easily made as they are flat, narrow parts; I have included plenty of the correct thickness of sheet plastic so you can made them. Otherwise complete with all other parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora Boeing B-52 Stratofortress - (ex Comet), 1/317, 2494-60

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$129   

Very rare issue dated 1964. This is the seldom seen Aurora reissue of the Comet kit for the Canadian market only. Several small-scale Comet molds were never reissued for the USA market and for decades I have wondered what happened to them. Aurora had no need for them, as they had already cut their own (superior) small-scale molds for most of those subjects, including the B-52 and B-47. Well, the ex-Comet molds went to Aurora Canada! The small, less detailed Comet kits were issued there using the same box art as their slightly larger and more detailed Aurora counterparts in the USA. Simply looking at the box top, you could not tell the difference. However, the four digit part number gives it away as do the contents. Molded in silver and clear and still retains the original Comet 'teardrop' shaped two-piece stand. Naturally the instructions are completely unique since this is a different kit from the Aurora USA B-52. This kit is 100% correct and has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Veeday Yakovlev Yak-15 - Sample Release, 1/72, 002

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$22   

Rare injection molded, limited run model. Veeday was a British company that produced some of the earliest 'short run' injection molded kits. Production lasted from 1978 to 1982. In all, 16 kits were issued if you count the Cierva C30 RAF and the C30 civil issue as two kits. Less than 1000 of each kit was produced and all kits were boxed. Two bagged kits (Pfalz D.XII and Spitfire 24) were issued after Veeday ceased production by someone who purchased the left-over stock. This kit has never been started - all parts and decals are present. However, NOTE: the instructions are missing. That is probably why it is labeled a "Sample Only."

ODK Nakajima J1N1 Gekko Irving, 1/55, 100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$34   

ODK was the logo used by Odaka Sangyo. Odaka began plastic model kit production in early 1960, but all production stopped by 1965. The Irving was their first kit; however, this issue is likely the final issue given the more realistic box art. Molded in silver, black and clear plastic. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The box says this is one of "Odaka's Double Engine Aircraft Series" and ODK says the scale is 1/55. The long top box end shows four other kits with the artwork - all for the final release of each. They include Ki-45 Nick, XP-50, P-38 and Me-110.

Aurora Gotha Bomber G-V, 1/48, 126-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$95   

The box has factory-new color and gloss but flaws include a crease at the upper left and light wear as shown, especially near the 198 price circle. Dated 1958 with 'Famous Fighters in the sunburst logo and the 1.98 price circle at the upper right. Jo Kotula composed the stunning composition for Aurora; by this point, his commercial art in aviation was in high demand. This big and impressive model is molded in a stunning gloss deep burgundy and black. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. This model is part of a very successful 1/48 scale WWI series that Aurora started in 1956. They sold so well that they introduced new kits almost annually well into the 1960s. Some sold well right up until the end of Aurora in the mid 1970s.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$56

Aurora retained the colorful Jim Cox box art from the original 1956 issue. (Mr. Cox was Aurora's first box artist; please read his biograpny on this website) This model is part of a very successful WWI aircraft line in 1/48 scale that Aurora introduced in '56. The line sold so well that kits were added to it into the 1960s. Molded in the glossy olive drab green and black. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Master Modell Antonov AN-14 Bienchen Clod - Aeroflot / Soviet Air Force / East German Air Force DDR, 1/72, 1026

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$26   

Older but nicely molded kit of this very useful and long-lived aircraft. Features very good cockpit, full cabin with floor, seats and bulkheads (with a clear window in the cockpit bulkhead), separately molded control surface hinges, rotating wheels and propellers, optional opened or closed rear loading doors with staircase, and a paint guide & very large and extensive decals sheet for the three versions listed. The Antonov AN-14 'Little Bee' was developed to fulfill an Aeroflot need for a small, twin engined, short-ranged aircraft holding 5 to 6 passenger or 500 kg of freight for an airport to city shuttle service. The aircraft was also designed to be suitable for hire, agriculture, medical service and pilot training. Design emphasis was placed on low-maintenance, STOL performance and rough field take offs and landings. The prototype was completed in spring of 1958 and flight testing started on March 15 of the same year. After solving some typical problem, the aircraft entered series production and was very successful, fulfilling many more duties than it was ever designed for. The AN-14 was eventually phased out but replaced by the An-14M with PTL engines. At present, it's successor model, the AN-28 went into production in Poland. In 1993, PZL-Mielec developed its own improved variant, the PZL M28 Skytruck.

Revell Republic F-84F Thunderstreak Whip-Fly, 1/54, H152-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$69   

1960 issue of the rare 'Whip Fly' series. Hardbox artwork for this series was 'action' photos by Tom Kelly. Whip-Fly kits contain the aircraft model with nose ballast, a metal control ring, 12 feet of control line and a control handle so that you could spin the aircraft around in circles. This kit has never been started. It is either still in the internally sealed factory bag or has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The long side of the box shows the complete Whip-Fly series with the action box art. Included are H151 F9F-8 Cougar, H152 F-84F, H153 F-89D Scorpion, H154 F8U-1 Crusader, H155 F-39 Airacobra and H156 F-101A Voodoo. Although not listed yet, there was also a Whip-Fly Canberra, F-106 and Yak-25 Flashlight. The Whip-Fly series seemed like a good idea...at first. Revell quickly realized that spinning heavily-ballasted, sharp objects at dizzying speeds in or outside the home near groups of children was not the best idea. The series was quickly discontinued.

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$39   

1972 issue with revised molds; a much better kit that previous issues. Includes pilot, ground crewman and battle terrain base. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. The aircraft represented 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.
