Aurora Russian Mig-19, 1/48, 66-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Mint


Very rare model in incredible, investment-grade 'Mint' box condition. The original owner very carefully opened the model but left the shrink wrap protecting the box top and four sides. It is in remarkable condition; there is no more wear than it left the assembly line with. Dated 1958 with fantastic Jo Kotula artwork; however the lack of 'Famous Fighters' in the oval boarder logo means that it is closer to the early 1960s. The model inside is molded in a wonderful gloss dark green and clear. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Instructions and decals are 'near mint' with slight yellowing as the only significant flaw.

AV Models Tachikawa Ki-74 - Pat Or Patsy, 1/72, AV84

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc


Rare. Still factory sealed. Beautifully molded in high-definition resin. The Ki-74 was first conceived in 1939 as a long-range reconnaissance aircraft to operate from Manchurian bases. Its development was shelved when further research was needed to design its pressurized cabin. Late in 1941 the project was revived as a long-range high-altitude bomber-reconnaissance aircraft capable of bombing the United States mainland. The war ended before the aircraft could be deployed in sufficient numbers. When the Ki-74 designation was first identified in a captured Japanese document, it was thought to apply to a fighter type and was coded with the boy's name "Pat". Later, proper translation of captured documents finally confirmed that the Ki-74 was actually being developed as a bomber type, the codename was feminized to become "Patsy". The gender change of the name was an embarrassment to TAIC (the Allied group in charge of the aircraft codenames), and was one of the very few code name changes late in the war.
