Aurora The Blue Knight of Milan, 1/8, 472

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$45   

1960s Aurora of Great Britain issue with great box art. This model contains a large 1/8 scale knight, base, both red and white plumes (like the box art) and instructions. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the box had a closed tear across the bottom, about 1" up from the lowest point. This has been neatly repaired from the inside but that is why the box only grades 'good-.' In the mid 1950s, Aurora bought three 'Knight' molds from Crown Plastics and issued them as K1, K2 and K3. These were the very first Aurora figure kits and they sported the 1956-only rectangular 'Northern Lights' logo with the correct 'Crown Line' logo inside it. The sales success of the Knight prompted Aurora to launch an entire line of figure kits. The knights themselves stayed in production long after many other figures were discontinued.

Pyro 1936 Duesenberg SSJ Roadster - Body By LaGrande, 1/32, C412-125

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$42   

1966 Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of it's kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to, in this case Gary Cooper and Clark Gable's automobiles. This was the Duesenberg Company's last great automobile before going out of business in 1937. The Model J was a superb automobile and the fastest and finest car of it's day. Never to be outdone, the two brothers made two supercharged 'Super-Duesenbergs' from J models and are referred to by the public as SSJs. (The term SSJ was never used by the factory) The output was a whopping 400 bhp. The model includes rubber tires, chrome plated parts, colored injection molded parts and clear parts. Features detailed chassis with suspension, complete motor, removable hood, spoked wheels and a full interior. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions present.

Sterling Stinson SR-8 Reliant Gullwing - 31 Inch Wingspan for R/C, 1/16, E8

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$95   

Big scale kit with a 31 3/8 inch wingspan. Designed for RC, CO2, free flight, control line or detailed scale display. Features die cut quality balsa sheet parts and factory cut stringers and spars, die-cut plywood parts, fully formed wire landing gear struts, completely finished main and tail wheels & thrust button, hardware, control line parts, vacuform cowl/engine front, wheel pants and more, plastic prop, rubber motor, clear window material, covering tissue, large color decal sheet, superb plans and more. Never started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed 'Sterling' clear bag. The parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete and includes all paperwork. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they featured color decals, high-grade die cut balsa, vacuform plastic detail parts, plastic wheels (if required), finished wire landing gear, rubber motor and plastic prop, full size plans with instruction details and full instructions for conversion to RC or control line and more.
