Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Varney was one of the most known names in early HO model railroading. Gordon Varney was visionary in early business years. When HO was just gaining in popularity in the late 1930s, Varney sold all of his successful 'O' gauge moldings and casting to concentrate exclusively on HO gauge. Judging from the style of kit, this one is from the 1950s. Features all metal main parts that are factory painted and lettered; metal and plastic details, metal truck set and more. The kit has not been started. Inventoried complete with all parts and instructions present. The car sides and end are in 'excellent+' condition. Never started.

Aurora USS Enterprise Nuclear Powered Attack Carrier CVN-65 - For Motorizing, 1/400, 720-995

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

A truly spectacular model for that time and ideal for R/C conversion. This is the 1961 early issue with John Steel box artwork. Aurora pulled out all the stops on this very large kit with incredibly high tooling costs to match. The result is an excellent model that is well-designed for actual operation in water. As a bonus, the first issue only had the flight deck pre-painted with black background and white lines (as per the box art) and the factory paint is in 'excellent+ condition. The kit is over 33 inches long when assembled and is intended to be motorized. This kit features four (5 bladed) propellers in a durable & flexible nylon type plastic, stuffing boxes with grease filling holes, metal gearbox and nylon-like gears, brass or bronze propeller shaft tubes, dual operational rudders, a very large sheet color decals for the ship and airwing, moving elevators, twin Sea Sparrow launchers, gold plated display stand, detailed island structure with clear windows and all sensors, a large airwing with 40 aircraft including F-4 Phantom, F-8 Crusader, A-4 Skyhawk and two Hup Helicopters and more. The kit has never been started. All of the small parts are still in the factory sealed internal bags. The stand, aircraft and hardware bags were torn, so I inventoried all those parts and they are complete. Includes all decals and instructions. Aurora sold the motorizing parts separately and they are not included. In case you are curious, the 'sold separately' parts are two steel ballast weights, four brass battery clips and 4 battery contacts, wire, two electric motors and small nuts and bolts. All other hardware, gear boxes, motor mounts, worm gears, stuffing boxes, metal shafts and tubes, battery box etc are included with this 'standard' kit.
