Rare first issue from the early 1950s with the 'Famous Fighters of All Nations' box . Aurora's first logo is on the side with the West Hempstead address and also please note the 79 cent price extension on the part number. Inside it is 100% correct with first logo instructions, early Tatem decals and the parts molded in gloss silver & green-tinted clear. Never started and inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. The decals are in remarkable 'excellent+ condition and the instructions are 'excellent++.' Even the original factory packing tissue is present. The canopy is 100% intact with no cracks but NOTE: it has a haze to it. I used some Novus plastic polish and it did go away (became clear) but there was significant effort involved.

Aurora Boeing F4B-4 - (F4B4), 1/48, 122-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$59   

1958 first issue with fantastic Jo Kotula boxart. This is the Parents' Magazine issue with the seal located in the lower right and the '69' price circle at the upper left. This was considered a fine model in the day and rated highly in magazine reviews. These classic 1930s Navy Biplane Fighters are still famous for their colorful paint jobs at that that time. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Cowl, tail and trim color would vary with the group's Aircraft Carrier (Ranger, Lexington or Saratoga and the aircraft's position in the flight formation.

Revell German Heavy Cruiser Blucher - (Hipper Class), 1/720, 5049

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$32   

1985 Revell of Germany reissue from the original 1974 USA molds. Can be built waterline or full hull with complete propeller and rudder detail. Features detailed deck and superstructure, rotating main 8" turrets, six dual AA gun mounts, three rangefinders, cranes, gun directors, searchlights, AR-196 floatplane and more. The Blucher had the dubious distinction of being the only capital ship sunk in WWII by coastal torpedo batteries. She was also the only German capital ship to be sunk during the Norway invasion of April 1940, repeating the history of the previous Armored Cruiser Blucher which was the only capital ship lost at the Battle of Dogger Bank in WWI. The WWII Blucher was surprised by Norwegian coastal torpedo batteries and guns from the fortress of Oscarsborg while sailing up the fjord towards Oslo.

Very rare first issue. Of Aurora's 'Original Brooklyn 8,' this is usually considered the hardest one to find. Inside, the kit is 100% correct with no/minimal rivet detail, no bombs and no landing gear. The color is the unique first run non-metallic 'medium red' with clear canopy and stand. The stand is the correct square one marked 'Brooklyn.' The instructions are correct Brooklyn also, and the decals are the proper early 'Tatem Company' issue with the swastika. It even includes the original factory packing tissue. This kit has never been started. It has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts in perfect condition, amazing 'excellent but rolled' decals and 'excellent++' instructions with a tiny pinhole as the only real flaw. The box is the low end of the 'good' range as shown. There is a litho tear from the factory tape on the upper long side and it measures 1/5" long by 1/2" wide (average). This kit must be shipped double boxed and insured.

LF Models Kellet XR-3 Autogiro - Testbed For XR-8, 1/72, 7245

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$46   

This limited edition model features main parts beautifully molded in high definition resin, very fine recessed panel lines, very good cockpit, printed instruments and more. Never started.

LF Models Hawker Tornado - RAF Alternate Fighter, 1/72, 7213

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$48   

This limited edition model features main parts beautifully molded in high definition resin, very fine recessed panel lines, very good cockpit, printed instruments and more. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: the instructions show a fret of brass PE parts; however, all of the larger parts on the fret have been replaced with resin parts. So I believe that the fret and it's smaller details were eliminated by the manufacturer. You can always use a Typhoon for any other details as the only primary difference is the fuselage.

Nichimo Maya Heavy Cruiser Motorized, 1/500

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$119   

Very Rare. Nichimo was founded in 1951 and was a very famous Japanese kit manufacturer both at home and around the world. This model dates from the late 1950s or very early 1960s and is part of an extensive and sought-after 1/500 scale IJN Warship Series with expensive glossy box art from the 'Golden Age' of Japanese model kit illustrations. The model can built for motorized operation in water or static with waterline or full hull display. Well detailed and molded for that time, it features all hardware for motorizing, a steel and brass gear box for dual-propeller drive, switch, wire, universal joints, brass batter contacts, metal shafts, an original Mabuchi FA13 still in the original colorful box, one piece lower hull (molded in a realistic IJN 'Hull Red'), one piece upper hull (molded in gray), detailed deck and superstructure, rotating main turrets and separately molded secondary battery and AA guns, catapults, floatplanes and more. Never started. The plastic parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags; the hardware bag is open and inventoried complete. Includes instructions, silver and gold foil-covered cardboard name plate and internal packing display 'band.' Please note that Nichimo did not supply decals with this issue. Please note that the box would display slightly better than the 'good+' rating, but is graded as such because there is a closed tear at the center of the right short side. It has been very neatly and correct repaired from the inside with light weight cardstock and book binding glue.
