Monogram Phantom Huey UH-1B Chopper Motorized with Sound Factory Sealed, 1/24, PA226

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$850   

VERY rare in this condition - still factory sealed. Like the first issue B-52, Monogram sealed the Phantom Huey in a unique way. There was never an external seal around the box top. The potential customer could lift off the box top, and the lower tray was completely sealed in clear cellophane so the parts and layout could be observed. This was a great way to make a potential customer into a paying one. The cello seal is still 100% intact with no cuts or splits. This is the first issue of this model, dated 1969. Large and completely transparent with a 20 inch long fuselage and nearly 2 foot rotor diameter. Well detailed with 184 parts and structural members and full internal detail. Features complete cockpit, pilot and co-pilot figures, full cabin, opening cabin door, inner fuselage framing, detailed engine and more. In the display base with the batteries is an electric motor which turns the main and tail rotors while the sound unit makes "chop-chop" sound that varies correctly with main rotor speed. To minimize painting, the kit is molded in clear, zinc chromate green, black, chrome plate, gray, olive drab and flexible black/gray ammo belts. The clear fuselage halves have no breaks or cracks, they are mint. The Phantom Huey box top was notoriously thin and damaged easily. This one has the typical wear but amazingly has four solid original corners, no holes and is 100% intact. Other than the wear and moving sticker, the other flaws are on the box sides, thankfully. There were two closed tears on the side panels which I have repaired correctly from the inside with book binding glue. A long time ago there was tape on the very bottom of both long sides; it is gone, but you can see the brown residue from it for about 7" x 1" on the lowest edge. NOTE: this kit must be shipped fully insured.

Aurora Fokker E111 Eindekker - (E-111), 1/48, 134-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$42   

Dated 1963. Nicely molded kit that was popular for decades. Feature great Jo Kotula box art, pilot and cockpit, detailed engine, ground crew member and ground display base with wheel chocks. Molded in tan and black plastic. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. This is part of the famous Aurora WWI series of 1/48 scale aircraft. The series began in 1956 and Aurora added new kits into the early 1960s. The line proved incredibly popular, so these kits were included in the 'mold upgrade' in the 1970s before Aurora went out of business.

Aurora Nieuport 11, 1/48, 101-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$59   

Rare third issue in investment-grade 'Near Mint' condition. Although copyright dated 1956 on the side and sporting the original Jim Cox artwork, this kit is from the early/mid 1960s due to the blue boarder logo. Molded in the correct gloss olive drab and black plastic. Never started. 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.

Aurora DeHavilland DH-4 - (DH4), 1/48, 112-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$49   

First issue dated 1957 with classic Jo Kotula artwork. Part of the famous WWI 1/48 scale series of aircraft that Aurora issued starting in 1956. Molded in the correct gloss olive drab and black plastic, including figures and the ground base with chocks. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Besides it's distinguished career in WWI, the DH-4 saw extensive post war service in numerable ways. One of the most interesting was as a United States Post Office air mail service aircraft. The aircraft's likeness even graced an airmail stamp of the time. In about 1925, the Post Office decided to upgrade. The prototype was the Douglas M-1 and an improved version, the M-2, became the next mail carrier. The M-2 is also an Aurora kit in the same scale.

Aurora Curtiss JN-4 Jenny, 1/48, 114-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$49   

First issue dated 1957 with Jo Kotula art and the 'new' (that year) Famous Fighters oval logo with the sunburst inside. Molded in a wonderful gloss yellow, black and clear. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Please note that the box displays much better than the 'good-' rating but is graded as such because there is a 1.5" x .5" sticker on the right short side (partially torn) and clear tape on both long sides at the bottom.

Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.

Very rare. Large 1/28 scale motorized kit with many working features. A factory-assembled metal gear box with nylon gears is driven by a common FA-130 motor. The gearbox spins the prop and drives the tail wheel, moving the aircraft across any smooth surface while the red and green wing navigation light blink on and off. Factory glue is included as well as all running hardware and lights. Please note that KSN did not furnish the motor with the kit. Features hidden battery compartment (where the real engine would be) and it has moving rudder, elevator, ailerons and wing flaps. The kit has never been started and is complete. Inside it is just as it left the factory. The small parts, gearbox, lights and glue are still factory sealed. The plastic parts that were factory sealed are still sealed in the original clear bags; the few large parts that were never sealed are inventoried compete. The checkerboard cardboard presentation material and large full-color card showing aircraft and famous pilots is in very good condition . Includes instructions and decals in 'very good+' condition. The box is 100% complete with four solid corners and no repairs or tape. But it does have significant general wear as shown and discoloration, hence the 'good-' grade.

Very rare, one-and-only issue from 1958. When the "Missile Boom" in model kits started, Revell lead the pack with a huge line. To make them more interesting, they included any extras they could think of such as launchers, trucks, trailers, cranes, gantry, ground crew, etc. The Jupiter features many interesting accessories and action features as well. The loading crane elevates and swivels 360 degrees and can be fully rigged with blocks and tackle, and the entire load-to-launching process can be duplicated with the trailer, truck, crane and launch pad. Includes a crew of 4, textured concrete base and missile launch pad. Molded in correct white and olive drab. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The decals are remarkable 'excellent++' condition with light age yellowing as the only flaw. The instructions are in 'near mint+' condition and are free of yellowing. The box has very good color and gloss, four solid corners, no repairs and no fading or stains; however, it only grades 'good' due to significant moderate wear as shown.

Features swing wings, correct retractable landing gear, good cockpit detail, pilot and radar navigator and Air Force markings. Includes the famous clear triangle-based Aurora 'Globe' stand.

The Harriett Lane was built in 1858 and named for President Buchanan's niece. The cutter was 180 feet long with a 30 foot beam and displacement was 670 tons. Armament consisted of 3-9 inch Dahlgrens and 1-30 lb Parrot Rifle. She was built at a time when steam was not fool-proof, so she is rigged for full sails. Harriett Lane served as the Presidential Yacht, the fired the first shot of the Civil War. She chased down blockade runners until January 1, 1863 when she was attacked by five Confederate Gun Boats and boarded. She was captured and renamed the Lavinia and was used as a blockade runner. Near the end of the war she caught fire at sea, and put into Havana Harbor. Federal forces took her again and rebuilt her in 1869 as the bark 'Elliot Ritchie.' She was abandoned at sea in 1884.
