Lindberg PHOTO ONLY - SOLD, 1/64, 525-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair-

Sold   

Classic kit from the late 1950s with dramatic box art by Ray Gaedke. This was the first big-scale, high quality kit ever made of the B-17 and Lindberg could hardly keep the hobby shop shelves stocked. If you have built this model, you know that it is well molded, fits together easily and has excellent detail for that time. It features movable rudder, elevators & ailerons, rotating and elevating gun turrets, retractable main landing gear and tail gear, crew members, 'good' cockpit detail, rotating propellers & wheels and a large, clear adjustable display stand. Inside, the kit has never been started and is inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the box is only in 'fair-' condition and not collectible. It is very beat up and worn and just a notch above being 'Poor' condition.

Monogram Boeing 727 TWA - (ex Aurora), 1/96, 5414

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

Sold   

1978 issue after Monogram bought and modified the Aurora molds. Monogram only reissued the best and most commercially viable models. In this case, they saw the molds could be improved and did so. The result is a much better and accurate kit, the best 'short' body 727 available in near 1/100 scale. Monogram added a network of very fine raised panel lines to the fuselage (the original had no panel lines), filled the deep e-doors over the wings and made them fine raised also, added wing fences and fine raised panel lines to the wings, added flap hinges to the wing undersides and added fine raised panel lines to the horizontal stabilizers. Monogram was evidently proud of the improvement, and even shows them on the assembly drawings. With full landing gear. Includes TWA full stripes and window decals. This kit has not been started. Inventoried and NOTE: missing clear cockpit windows. Otherwise complete with all other parts. Includes decals and instructions. NOTE: decals are damaged. There is enough left that you could restore them using the procedure outlined in the two articles on this website about how to save old decals. If not, you will need to provide your own decals.

Comet Boeing 707 Stratotanker (367-80 - Dash 80) - BAGGED, 1/125, PL800-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box

Sold   

NOTE: Bagged kit - there is no box. The box is shown for reference only. Comet originally began model production in 1929 with a line of balsa flying models. In the mid-1950s Comet made a beautiful line of small and medium scale aircraft and missile models with colorful boxes. The early issues were in one-piece 'flip-top' boxes, and the later issues and releases were in standard two-piece 'hardboxes' with a lithograph slick glued to the top box. In 1963 Comet sold the plastic kit molds to Aurora, who reissued some but not all of the kits. There were two Boeing 707 models made. This is the two-piece box larger scale (1/125) 'Stratotanker' - not really a tanker model at all, but a nice kit of the famous Dash-80 Prototype Air Force Tanker/707, which lead to the world's first commercially-successful airliner and the legendary KC-135 air-to-air refueler. Well molded with fine recessed panel lines, full landing gear and prototype decals. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. NOTE: one lower wing is a gray color instead of silver. It is from another issue of this same kit.

Aurora Nieuport II, 1/48, 101-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Sold   

Factory sealed and in investment-grade 'Near Mint' condition. 1960s issue with fantastic John Steel artwork. 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.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Have you ever wanted to build the world's first injection molded plastic kits? Well, now you can and for an affordable price. As you know, Frog in England produced the world's first plastic model kits starting back in 1938. Merlin Models receive permission for this very limited edition, exact replica of this historic Frog Penguin kit. Nicely molded. Also includes photocopies of the original Penguin instructions. The kit has never been started and is complete with all parts and paperwork. In the late 1930s, before WWII, Frog created the world's first line of injection molded plastic model kits. Since Frog stood for 'Flies Right Off the Ground' and Frog had a famous line of flying models, the world's first all injection molded kits were called Frog Penguin for the bird that does not fly. The Penguin Hart was among the early pre-war releases by Frog.

MPM Mitsubishi A7M2 Reppu Sam, 1/72, 72118

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Designed as a replacement for the A6M Reisen, the first A7M1 was completed in 1944. The fighter was well armed and had self sealing tank, hydraulically folding wings and a bullet proof windshield. The Navy, however, did not use the recommended engine, so the aircraft was under powered. The revised version with the MK9A was a complete success, but earthquakes, bombing raids and a prototype crash delayed the project till the end of the war. With many brass photoetched details. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Maircraft Brewster SB2A-1 Buccaneer - Solid Wood Aircraft Model - (SB2A1), 1/48, H-2

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

From the 1940s. Features 3D cut fuselage, 2D cut wings and tail feathers, wood stock and fully formed wheels. With excellent, full-sized plans. Never started and complete. Maircraft was originally founded in the early or mid 1930s by Gordon Christoph and went by the name Aircraft Model Company. The company produced a typical line of solid 'profile cut' kits that required the usual high talent levels for carving and finishing. A former Comet Model Airplane & Supply Co. salesman, Jack Mair, bought the company in the early 1940s and renamed it Maircraft. This company was one of the handful of solid kit producers who issued models in a consistent 1/48 scale during the 1930s and 1940s (others included Hawk and Dyna-Model). This lead to one of the most desirable and rare model kits ever produced in the USA - the wood/plastic 1/48 United DC-3 model issued immediately after World War 2. Other than the P-61 and a few other Maircraft offerings, most were simple kits that sold for the low price of about 35 cents and gave the owners many hours of pleasurable work.
