Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$48   

Dated 1963 and in 'excellent' condition inside and out.

Aurora North American F-100 Super Sabre, 1/103, 490-70

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$48   

Dated 1961 with the great Jim Cox artwork that makes early Aurora kits so collectible. This issue has a slightly larger box than earlier ones. It is a nicely done kit for that time, molded in silver and clear with full landing gear and clear 'Triangle World Map' stand. Never started. Inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. Please note, this is not a reissue of the Comet model. Aurora cut these molds years before acquiring Comet's F-100. Since this kit does not have 'Famous Fighters' in the oval logo border and has a 70 cent price extension, it is most likely from the late 1960s and not the artwork copyright date of 1961.

Master Modelcraft Supply Co Brig Washington - Commodore Famous Ship Line - 17 Inch Long And 12 Inch High Highly Prefabricated Wood And Plastic Ship, C-2

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$129   

Very, very rare model from 1954. Everyone knows of the Master Modelcraft aircraft kits. The ship kits are much rarer, and the Commodore Series was their 'flagship' of the modeling line. In an attempt to simply the difficult task of making wooden parts look like an intricate ship, they created perhaps the ultimate prefabricated classic ship models with completely finished wooden parts, metal fittings and numerous plastic parts. This model features a factory-finished wood hull, one sheet of die-cut printwood, and the rest of the parts are metal or plastic: there are 37 injection molded plastic parts from bulwarks to masts and yardarms and cast metal deck fittings as well. The model kit has never been started. The small metal and plastic parts (with the rigging thread) are still in a factory sealed clear bag. The other parts are still attached to the blue factory presentation cardboard or inventoried complete. With excellent instructions, large full size plan with two sides including many other drawings, rigging diagram, section view and step-by-step text instructions. Master Modelcraft Supply Company listed their address as N.Y. 66, New York during the early 1950s. The costly Commodore Series included C-1 Revenue Cutter, C-2 Brig Washington, C-3 Brig Boxer and C-4 Baltimote Clipper. Each was $2.95, a small fortune at that time for hobby kits. This contributed to their demise, low production numbers and rarity today. They also made a lesser line of ship kits that were prefabricated, but not to the level of the Commodore Series. They were all wood with metal fittings (part numbers B-1 through B-18). The Brig Washington was built in 1838 and was originally schooner rigged. In 1838 she was rerigged as a brig. During most her career she engaged in hydrographic work. Her 12 pound gun had a unique arrangement on a rotating turret-like platform amidships, enabling it to have a great field of fire. Upon the outbreak of the Civil War, the Washington was seized by the Confederacy and armed with one huge 42 pound carronade and impressed into the Confederate Navy. She was finally scuttled in 1862 near New Orleans to prevent capture by the Union Navy.

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$36   

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.
