Aurora 12 O'Clock High P-51 Mustang, 1/48, 345-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

$150   

Rare limited issue. Hardbox is dated 1965. Issued as a promotion with the famous TV show "12 O'Clock High," which centered on the exploits of USAAF B-17s flying over Hitler's Germany. The box is exceptional with great color and gloss, four solid corners, no repairs, no price tags or tape (or marks from either). Flaws include very light edge and general wear and a very slight 'crunch' and a light crease that did not show up in the photo. Has many working features: detailed engine with removable cowling, full cockpit and retractable landing gear. Molded in gloss olive drab and clear. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. Other kits in this rare series include the B-17 Bomber Formation (3 kits with a special stand and battle-damaged decals), P-38 Lighting, ME-109 (Bf-109), P-47, B-25, B-26 and Fw-190.

Monogram Speedee-Bilt F-86 Sabre Jet Flying Scale Model for Jetex, G13-100

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$145   

Scale flying model for use with the JETEX jet-power pack. Excellent pre-fabricated wood and plastic kit featuring beautiful, fully finished Monofoil solid balsa wings, factory painted die-cut balsa parts, plastic intake, exhaust, pilot and missiles, other balsa parts factory cut to shape, fully finished wheels and wire landing gear, a clear vacuform canopy (still mint and not yellowed, template sheet, full color decals and extensive instructions with numerous illustrations and full size plans. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Before there were plastic models, there were wooden aircraft kits. These usually came in two types - solid and stick and tissue. The solid models were static and usually contained a few blocks of balsa and sometimes a detail part or two. These "Make Wood Look Like Plane" models required a very high level of skill in carving and finishing. The stick and tissue variety were slightly easier to build and provided the ultimate thrill - they could fly when complete with rubber power (and later with free-flight gas and eventually RC). They still required a great deal of skill, so manufacturers sought ways to make model building more accessible to everyone. One idea was pre-carving and/or prefabrication. This raised prices, naturally. Many manufacturers launched lines of 'easy' to build flying models but only Monogram succeeded in making an entire line at an affordable price that would actual fly. The original "Speedee-Bilt" kits were in one-piece two-color boxes. In the early 1950s, shortly before plastic kits were available, Monogram changed to the 'hardbox' with a lithographic slick glued to the top as this kit. Speedee-Bilt kits contained die cut and pre painted wooden parts, completely formed airfoil wings, carved wheels and numerous plastic details like cowlings, pilot, missiles, prop and more. Assembly was by detailed full size plans.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$45   

SALE!! First issue from 1956 with the one-year only Northern Lights logo. Art is by Jim Cox. A very nice model for that time that includes a pilot, ground display with chocks and a ground crew member as well. Molded in the correct gloss olive drab and black plastic. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. Please note that the box displays 'near mint' or better but is graded 'excellent' because there is a 1 inch tape tear (from the factory tape) on the top long side. This kit is one of a very successful line of 1/48 WWI aircraft that Aurora launched in 1956. The line sold so well that new kits were added into the 1960s. Molded in the correct gloss olive drab green and black. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Thanks to Eugene DuBey, we know some history on the aircraft that Aurora modeled. The tail # on the kit rudder is 1354, the number of a Nie 16 that served with "CAM de Dunquerke / St Pol sur Mer", 1916-17.
