Aurora Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina - Scale Error Version, 1/74, 374-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$135   

Rare, first issue artwork from about 1955-56. This was a fine effort by Aurora for that time and an impressive model when assembled. Features retracting pontoons and rotating props. Includes correct early logo instructions which show the clear 'Triangle World' stand and the correct stand is included. This must be one of the first instances of the 'Triangle' stand being used as it is normally associated with oval 'Famous Fighter' logo kits. Molded in gloss silver and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please note the 'good' grade due to small white paint spots at the right and a slight crunch at the upper right corner. It is interesting to note that the early Aurora PBY issue has at least three small variations to the box top. The very first issue says '1/4 SCALE MODEL' at the top right. Clearly, this kit is not 1/48 scale and someone at Aurora corrected it. Following that, there are two known corrections: early and late. On the early version, the '1/4' was blotted out with a dark blue oval or circle and '5/32' was added after the word 'SCALE.' It was now correct, but the appearance was not completely professional. This box is the early, uncorrected version.

Unicraft G-38 Light Cruiser, 1/72

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$58   

Still factory tape sealed. Very rare model of this advanced Soviet design. Nicely detailed, limited-run resin kit. This aircraft history is from the website Hanger 47.com - The G-38 Light Cruiser was an experimental fighter designed and built by the P.I. Grokhovsky Design Bureau from 1934-1936. Conceived as a two-seat fighter-bomber, and powered by a pair of 900 hp Gnome-Rhone radial engines, it was to be armed with two ShVAK 20mm cannon and four ShKAS 7.62 mm machine guns, all installed at the wing roots or in the small fuselage pod that was faired into the leading edge of the wing. At least some of these forward firing weapons were employed in the narrow gap between the two propeller arcs, and did not have to be burdened with synchronization gear. On the three-seat version there were reportedly an additional two SHKAS guns firing to the rear and controlled by an aft gunner.In the mid-1930s, the concept of the “fighter-destroyer” was very popular in design and planning circles. The Grokhovsky G-38 was one of many examples of this class of fighter that were designed but never flown. It was a twin-boom, multi-seat heavy fighter comparable in concept to the Dutch Fokker G.1 or the Lockheed P-58 ‘Chain Lightning’ — although the American aircraft it is most often compared to is Lockheed’s P-38 Lightning of WWII. The G-38, however, was remarkable in a number of respects, most significant of which was the execution of the twin-boom concept. The Fokker and the Lockheed designs were large, bulky aircraft, as was the original take on the G-38. When Grokhovsky hired the young Pavel Ivensen to work on the project, however, the aircraft was transformed into something rather exciting. Ivensen completely redesigned the aircraft and what emerged, was a relatively small plane, with a wingspan of 13.4 meters (compared with 16 meters for the P-38 and 17 meters for the Fokker G.1) in a compact, aerodynamic twin-boom airframe.It was constructed almost entirely of wood, with metal parts restricted to the cockpit, engines, weapons and landing gear. The crew (reported alternately as either two or three men) were contained in a tapered teardrop-shaped pod faired into the broad wing center section, and the two Gnome-Rhone radial engines tapered to extremely slender booms. The G-38 had an incredibly low frontal area for an aircraft of its class, and a high wing loading for the time. Its maximum speed was estimated at 340 mph, quite fast for its time (1936). Most remarkable of all was the fact that the preliminary designs were approved in 1934, making the highly modern looking G-38 a contemporary of the Hawker Hurricane and Curtiss P-36. After two years’ work, it was canceled in 1936 on the eve of completion of the prototype. Josef Stalin had an abiding distrust in virtually everyone, and the leading lights among his aircraft designers were anything but exempt; in 1937, Grokhovsky was swept up in the purge which decimated the Soviet armed forces that year, and arrested on false charges. He would ultimately die in prison in 1946. Had it not been canceled in the months prior to the 1937 Purge, Grokhosky’s cutting edge G-38 might have equipped the Soviet Air Force with a revolutionary fighter on the eve of World War II.
