Hobby Craft Avro CF-105 Arrow, 1/48, HC1651

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor

$149   

Very rare, large-scale Arrow with recessed panel lines, good cockpit, crew of two, detailed landing gear, external missile load, centerline tank and decals for all five aircraft. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the box looks much better than the 'poor' rating. It is graded as such because serious damage on 3 side panels, including a missing section 4" x 3" in size. Also, the tray (lower box) is seriously damaged and missing one large and several smaller sections. I have repaired the box so it is sound enough to be shipped safely.

Aurora McDonnell F-4H Phantom, 1/48, 394-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$69   

Early release hardbox dated 1961. Please note this kit is from the middle 1960s as it has the oval sunburst logo with no 'Famous Fighters' border. Large 1/48 scale early Phantom has great Jo Kotula box artwork and is a nicely detailed kit for that time featuring dual cockpits, full landing gear, four AIM-7 Sparrow missiles, a tiny additional F-4H scale model (measuring only 1.5 inches long) and a large, clear 'Triangle World' display stand. Never started. It has been inventoried and NOTE: missing one piece: pilot's control stick. Otherwise includes all other parts, decals and instructions. In the photo the box displays better than the 'good' rating but note that it has a long crease and edge dings along the bottom, clear tape on the center of both long sides and a closed litho tear on the lower long side as well as general wear.

Aurora Sikorsky HH-3E Jolly Green Giant, 1/72, 505

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$24   

'Big A' logo issue dated 1972. In the late 1960s/early 1970s, Aurora realized that it needed to produce new and better kits if they were to stay competitive. As a result, several helicopters, aircraft and ships were released with markedly improved mold quality and detail. The HH-3 is one of those kits. The result is a very nice scale model that features full cockpit, pilot and co-pilot figures, stub wing fuel tanks, detailed rescue winch, in-flight refueling probe, retractable landing gear, rotating main and tail rotors and more. The kit has never been started. Inventoried and NOTE: Missing two parts: pilot's arm and front left clear windshield. Otherwise complete will all other parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora Bell AH-1G Huey Cobra - Assault Helicopter - Rectangle Box Issue, 1/48, 501

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$59   

Big 'A' logo issue is dated 1972 and this is likely the fourth issue of this kit. In the late 1960s Aurora realized that the older molds were out of date and modelers were demanding more realism. They made a new set of molds for ships, airplanes and helicopters. These were significant improvements as the new molds were on par with current offerings. This Cobra kit is one of the improved models. Features full cockpit, pilot and copilot figures, rotating main and rear rotors and optional weapons load of miniguns or rocket pods. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora 1904 Curved Dash Olds Oldsmobile - Old Timers - Famous Cars of All Times Issue, 1/16, 576-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$149   

1963 first issue of this well detailed, large 1/16 scale kit. Molded in black, chrome, red and with real rubber tires. Never started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the factory sealed bag; the parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete. With instructions. Please note that the box may look better than the 'good' grade but it has a light stain on the right side of the box top and side. Aurora was renowned for turning a profit and for keeping expenses down. In researching new kit subjects, they came upon a forgotten jewel - the Hudson Miniatures line of 1/16 scale wooden kits. Hudson had discontinued this line due to lack of sales of wooden kits. But the Hudson models were second to none in quality, research and documentation. Aurora was quick to realize this and used the research and layout from these kits to create the subjects for this 'Old Timers' series. It is fortunate for us that they did, because in most cases this is the only injection molded kit of these rare and classic early automobiles.

Aurora Spad XIII, 1/48, 107-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$48   

Second issue hardbox is dated 1957 with great Jo Kotula artwork. Although dated '57, it is from about 1963 due to the lack of 'Famous Fighters' in the border of the oval logo. This is part of a popular and very successful series of 1/48 scale WWI aircraft that Aurora started in 1956 and added to well into the 1960s. Many of the line were in production right up until the demise of Aurora in the mid 1970s. Molded in correct olive drab and black plastic. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Please note that the box is only 'good' with scuffs as show, especially across the top.

Molded in correct gloss silver and clear plastic. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Revell SMS Seeadler - Sea Eagle - German WWI Commerce Raider, 1/232, 5473

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+

$169   

1991 reissue from the rare 1960 molds. This ship is a fascinating subject -the famous WWI sailing commerce raider of Count Felix Von Luckner. Well detailed for that time. Full hull model is molded in white and includes standing and running rigging thread & full rigging instructions. It has never been started. Inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The SMS Seeadler was a unique WWI raider in that it was not designed to elude the British blockade and break out to sea...it was designed to pass right through the blockade within full view of the British before attacking allied shipping around the world. No detail was overlooked in the Seeadler's preparation, right down to a Norwegian-speaking crew. The plan went perfectly - and the Seeadler passed inspection at the British Blockade. Her non-threatening appearance helped her in an active and colorful raiding career that nearly went around the world. I highly recommend reading any of several books that you can find about this ship. Von Luckner himself became quite a celebrity for his exciting exploits.

$39   

Kikoler Brazil issue, probably from the 1960s. From the same molds as the excellent and well detailed 1950s 'S' kit.

Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present.

Lindberg Lumber Schooner Forester, 852-60

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$38   

As the West Coast lumber trade became big business in late 1800s, the industry needed a way to move vast amounts of timber. The answer was lumber schooners, built of the same Douglas fir as the planks they carried. These ships had shallow drafts for crossing coastal bars, uncluttered deck arrangements for ease of loading and were especially handy for maneuvering into the tiny, Northern California ports. The C.A. Thayer was one such schooner, built in 1895 and preserved today as a museum ship in San Francisco. This is the 1969 issue hardbox issue of this small but nicely detailed ship. It measures about 8 inches long when assembled and includes vacuformed sails. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. The actual lumber schooner Forester was 217 feet long, 680 ton, 32 feet wide, drew 13.6 feet of water with a displacement of 1,812.5 tons. She cost $60,000 to build and netted between $12,000 and $19,000 per trip for her investors during the heyday of the trade. As of 2006 you could see see her wreckage along the Martinez shoreline.
