Sign up for the Hotlist.

Very rare 2nd 'Crown' issue. This issue is dated 1956, but is from 1957 judging from the new 'Famous Fighters' oval logo and the fact that 'CROWN' is moved up to the top, just below 'Aurora.' Inside, the kit is also correct for the second issue. The instructions still say 'Copyright 1956 Crow Plastics, Inc Princeton, New Jersey' and the oval 'Famous Fighters' logo from the box top is on the instructions as well. Molded in a beautiful gloss silver and with a feather plume. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. In the mid 1950s, Crown Plastics advertised the release of a series of Knight models - some of the very first figure kits. However, before Crown entered production, Aurora marketed the line for Crown in 1956- the first issue of this kit (this is the second issue). The first issue had a copyright on the instructions as 'Crown Plastics, Inc Princeton, New Jersey'. These were the first Aurora Knights ever issued and Aurora gave them the kit numbers K1-98, K2-98 and K3-98. These were the very first Aurora figure kits. The knights sold well, and Aurora bought the three 'Knight' molds from Crown Plastics within the year. The first issue had the early Aurora 'Northern Lights' rectangular logo has the correct 'Crown Line' logo inside it.

Revell Type XXI U2540 U-boat, 1/144, 05004

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$38   

From all new molds and dated 2006. Large kit that is finely detailed and molded with all recessed panel lines. NOTE: this kit has very minor and 'professional' quality assembly to two pieces; inner conning tower panel glued to one conning tower half. There is no other assembly. Inventoried 1005 complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The Type XXI U-Boats were the world's first true submarines; they could travel at high speeds for great distances underwater and attack without visual contact with the targets. The 'snort' allowed them to recharge the batteries and renew the air, eliminating the last needs for surfacing. A development of the Walther Peroxide Boats, the XXIs were seen as a faster way to put a more advanced submarine into service.

Revell SMS Seeadler - German WWI Commerce Raider - (Sea Eagle), 1/232, H331-300

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$185   

Very rare 1966 hardbox issue and ever rarer in this condition. The instructions include a history of the Seeadler, a map of the journey with locations & names of all the ships sunk by the raider and a message from the Captain of the Seeadler. This is a kit of a fantastic subject, the famous WWI sailing commerce raider of Count Felix Von Luckner. It is a very well detailed model for that time and has a full hull, display stand, detailed deck houses and deck fittings, davits and ship's boats, guns, fife rails, realistic deadeye assemblies, separately molded yards, tops and crosstrees, preformed rat lines, standing and running rigging material, rigging instructions, sails in amazing 'near mint' condition and much more. Molded in light gray, brown & black plastic. Never started. It has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts and includes the flag sheet and instructions. Although all parts are present, please NOTE that the propeller has one blade broken off and that blade is not present. The part number tags make the perfect start for a new blade since they are the right color, correct thickness and even have the right camber. The SMS Seeadler was a unique WWI raider in that it was not designed to elude the British blockade and break out to sea...it was designed to pass right through the blockade within full view of the British before attacking allied shipping around the world. No detail was overlooked in the Seeadler's preparation, right down to a Norwegian-speaking crew. The plan went perfectly - and the Seeadler passed inspection at the British Blockade. Her non-threatening appearance helped her in an active and colorful raiding career that nearly went around the world. I highly recommend reading any of several books that you can find about this ship. Von Luckner himself became quite a celebrity for his exciting exploits.

Revell Stag Hound Clipper - The Largest Merchant Ship of Her Day, 1/216, H345-300

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$85   

From 1966 and very well detailed like all early Revell sailing ships. This full-hull model features complete deck fittings & deck housings, deadeyes, fife rails, ships boats, five piece masts with separately molded platforms and cross trees, separately mold yards that can be positioned at any angle, display stand & name plate, premolded ratlines, optional sails, standing and running rigging material and full rigging instructions. Molded in three colors; black, white and wood tan. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts and includes color flag sheet, decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the original owner painted out the Revell logo at the top right; that is the only reason that the box is graded only 'good-.' The Stag Hound was designed by the famous Donald McKay and was launched on December 7, 1850. She is famous for her great speed and turned a nice profit for her owners. The most notable event was when the Stag Hound was asked to take a copy of President Lincoln's inaugural address to London. During this run, she raced the steamer 'America' and won easily. Shortly after this she was lost off Brazil to a spontaneous combustion of her coal cargo. The crew successfully abandoned ship. The captain was the last to leave. He lowered the American Flag, wrapped it around himself and jumped overboard.
