UPC North American F-86D Sabre Dog - Error Box Issue (ex-Marusan), 1/50, 5051-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$66   

This is likely the first issue of this UPC kit as it has a rather graphic error - it pictures F-86 Sabrejets on the box - NOT the F-86D 'Dog version. The enclosed kit is the "D" variant from Marusan molds. The Marusan F-86D model is known for it's action features and accessories, and the UPC reissue includes them all. Kit has removable radome to display the radar, opening canopy, removable tail section with dolly and detailed jet engine with engine stand, operating leading edge slats, operating wing flaps, moving control surfaces, retracting landing gear, retracting/extending missile tray, boarding ladder, and extra missiles with missile cart. Never started. One bag is still factory sealed; the other was torn so I inventoried the parts in it and they are complete. With decals and instructions.

Joe Ott North American Mustang P-51B - Ott-O-Former - 40 Inch Wingspan, 4001

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$225   

From the mid-1940s and very rare, especially in this condition.. The Joe Ott designed 'Ott-O-Former' series was the height of the classic stick and tissue flying model kits not just in box art but in contents. The large wingpspan kits were the top of the Joe Ott line and had a price tag to match, which makes them harder to find today, since fewer were produced. In a time when most kits came only with white tissue, printed wood and plans, the Bilt-A-Set line box came chock full of parts and features like beautifully printed Ott-O-Formers to speed up fuselage construction, Ott-O-Fromer assembly jigs and other parts as well, high-quality full length spars and strip wood, light-weight hardwood wing ribs, plywood propeller, fully carved and finished main and tail wheels, metal propeller/rubber shaft, propeller bearings, clear windscreen material, two colors of covering tissue, color printed national markings, pilot bust and squadron insignia, fully illustrated instructions and more. There is even a tube of very colorful Jo Ott Model Airplane Cement included (never opened, but dried up). This kit has never been started and is like it left the factory. The spars and stringers are still held together with the factory adhesive paper. All small parts are still in the factory small paper bag. The parts are still all in the sheets; none have been punched out. 100% complete with all parts and the plans in 'very good++' condition. The box top had several split corners and short tears and I have repaired them all correctly from the inside with cardstock and book binding glue.

Larger scale Pyro kit. Full hull model measures about 7 inches long when assembled. Nicely molded with billowing sails and display stand. This is one of the 'intermediate' line of Pyro ship kits, which were first called '$1.00 Models' and in 1967 were renamed '$1.25 Models.' All were roughly the same size and were a significant increase in detail from the '50 Cent Models.' (later called 74 cent models).

Morgan, HMS Bounty, HMS Ark Royal, USS Constellation, British Bomb Ketch, Chinese War Junk, Elsie - Gloucester Fisherman, Henri Grace A'Dieu, Dutch Staten Jacht, Gotta Le Jon and others. 50 Cent/75 Cent kits in 1967 included the Mayflower, Barbary Pirate, USS Constitution, Santa Maria, Golden Hind, Half Moon, Bon Homme Richard, Brig of War, HMS Victory, Flying Cloud, Nina, Pinta, Santa Maria, La Reale French Galley, Venetian Carrack, Roman Merchant, Spanish Galeon and others.

Molded in dark wood and off-white. A photo of the built kit on the instructions serves as a standing rigging diagram. Never started.

This is one of the 'intermediate' line of Pyro ship kits, which in 1967 Pyro called '$1.25 Models.' All were roughly the same size and were a significant increase in detail from the '75 Cent Models'.

Aurora German Gotha G-V Bomber - Abare Box / 1970s Kit With 1958 Ground And Mechanics Included, 1/48, 126-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

$69   

Ideal 'Classic Builder.' NOTE: this is a 1970s revised molds Aurora Gotha with 1958 ground base and ground crew in a Ross Abare 1970s issue box. The kit is the improved version which is a superior kit to the original release. So you can built it like the original issue, I have included an original ground base and ground crew (because the 1970s issue did not contain those). Never started and inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Aurora Curtiss Hawk P-6E, 1/43, 116-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$32   

The kit is dated 1958, but this is obviously a later issue from about 1963 as the Aurora logo does not say 'Famous Fighters' in the border and has no sunburst. The two side logos, however, do say 'Famous Fighters.' Kit features movable rudder, elevators and wing ailerons, cockpit with pilot, seat, instrument panel, gun sight and feet stirrups, auxiliary gas tank and rotating prop and wheels. Molded in gloss dark green and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried and includes all parts and instructions. NOTE: Missing decals.

Aurora Boeing KC-135 Jet Stratotanker, 1/125, 143-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$74   

Dated 1963 and from ex-Comet molds. This is the largest of the two Comet molds and has cockpit and cabin clear windows and full landing gear. Molded in gloss gray and clear. This model was given a clear Aurora two piece 'triangle world' stand, unlike many of the other Comet kits which only had a modified version of their original stands included. Of course this is not the production KC-135 but a model of the Boeing prototype with USAF decals. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora Rockwell 1121 Jet Commander, 1/72, 85-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$119   

Sale Pending
Email for availability.

1968 issue hardbox issue and a nice kit for that time. Features recessed panel lines, full interior with rear bulkhead, couch, chairs and console, cockpit with chairs, instrument panel, control yokes, forward bulkhead and clear windows. Includes optional position landing gear and colorful decals. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried and includes all parts, decals and instructions. The Jet Commander was the jet-powered follow-on to the famous Aero Commander twin private aircraft. But shortly after 1121 delivery began in 1965, Rockwell bought Aero Commander. The 1121 was competition for the Rockwell Sabreliner business jet in the same class, so Rockwell sold the Jet Commander to IAI. Famous nicknames assigned to the early 1121s included the familiar 'ground pounder', 'lead sled' and more unique 'Jet Commode'. Initial releases under IAI were called the 1123. Improvements to the 1123 design lead to the IAI 1124 Westwind powered by Garrett 731 fan engines. I won't recount here all of the nicknames for the IAI Jet Commanders...but the most printable include "Bagel Bomber" and "Yom Kippur Clipper." Legend has it that these molds were lost and/or destroyed in a train wreck. Monogram bought Aurora's molds and was transporting them to the Monogram factory when the accident happened.

Testors Waco CG-4A Assault Glider or British Hadrian - USAAF Normandie Invasion 1944 / USAAF Sicilia 1943 / RAF, 1/72, 863

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

$44   

Still factory sealed. Well detailed and finely molded featuring complete cockpit and full interior including troop benches. The Waco CG-4 was designed and initially built by Waco Aircraft Company of Troy, OH. It first saw action in Sicily and the operation was termed a disaster. This likely had more to do with planning than the actual glider. Missions in Europe, including D-Day, went much better. The glider was even deployed to Burma. It could carry up to 13 troops, or a jeep and four men, or a 75mm Field Gun.
