Topping Grumman F9F-8 Cougar - Factory Desktop Model In The Original Topping Box

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


Incredibly rare, 1950s NOS Topping F9F-8 model untouched in the original factory box. Inside, all of the factory cardboard and tissue are still intact. The stand and aircraft were never displayed or used. The gloss and shine on both are fantastic. There are no cracks, no breaks and no repairs. Decals and factory paint are 'excellent++' to 'near mint.' While never used, please note that these models never left the factory in 'flawless' condition. There were always minor paint flaws and minor molding flaws as they were mass-produced. Furthermore, the canopies and decals inevitably have some yellowing, although this example is minimal. Because the original Topping box adds significantly to the value, it will be carefully packed into another box for shipping. Shipping insurance is required.

BMJR Models Miss America 1/2 - 48 Inch Wingspan, B-326

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG


Still factory sealed and retails new for $104. An excellent kit featuring traditional stick-and-tissue construction, laser cut wood parts, hardware, full size plans and instructions. The Miss America was originally designed by Fran Zaic in 1935 as a gas powered Free Flight model with an 84" wing span and later became a kit released by Scientific. In 1959 Joe Wagner and John Pond were discussing a new event for SAM competition: scaled down versions of 'Antique' gas models of the 1930's, to be powered with Cox .020 engines. From this, the 020 Replica event was spawned. For this event Joe designed the 1/2 size Miss America. The BMJR Miss America 1/2 has a wing loading of just over 8oz per ft. making it legal for SAM Texaco. The Miss America 1/2 may be powered with Texaco .049 or electric. With a 42 inch wingspan, she is perfect for the Texaco Speed 400 event. This design was later published in the 1961 Model Airplane News with electric power and R/C in an article by Bill Winter. The BMJR kit was developed from an original hand drawn plan from 1959 provide by Joe with permission to develop this kit. This model is true to the original with some subtle changes to the rudder, elevator, and structure for RC control and a simplified landing gear mounting. Flying weight of this model is 13.5 oz. with a 238 sq. inch wing area.

Aurora Boeing B-29 Superfortress, 1/76, 372-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++


Rare 1960s issue retaining the same artwork as the 1956 issue. This is likely the 4th issue. I believe the 3rd issue is almost identical but has "Famous Fighters" in the oval logo. That would date this kit as 1963 and up till the 'Big A' box issue. Note the square 'Northern Lights' logo has been replaced with the Aurora sunburst oval logo. This kit has arguably the most dramatic and fanciful B-29 artwork from the 'Golden Era' of modeling. The box is in excellent condition. There are no split corner and no repairs. Responding to market information that boys wanted larger kits, Aurora introduced the B-26 followed by the B-29 and B-25, all of which sold well for many years. Missing stand. Never started. Otherwise complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Aurora Albatross CIII (Albatros C-III), 1/48, 142-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint


Still factory sealed and in amazing investment-grade 'Mint' condition. The seal is intact. Second issue dated 1963 that does not have 'Famous Fighters' on the four box side logos. The first issue did have FF in the box side logo borders.

Aurora-KB Fokker E-V (D-VIII) - Polish Air Force, 1/48, 1135-170

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


1972 issue with revised molds and better quality. Includes pilot, ground crewman and battle terrain base. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. The aircraft represented in this kit fought with the Polish Air Force against the Ukranian forces in 1919 but by that point it was a D-VIII. The Fokker E.V was a fantastic performer and the result of a longtime Fokker development, the cantilever wing. In addition to greatly reducing drag, a properly built cantilever wing is very light and strong. This wing was first used on prototype V17 and then on V28 which took part in the Second Fight Competition (July 6-14 1918) where the most experienced German front line pilots chose new fighters for late war service. V28 was chosen for it's excellent flying properties and 200 of the production aircraft, known as the Fokker E.V, were ordered. Over 289 aircraft were delivery. The E.V began front line service on August 5, 1918; Lt. Emil Rolff of Jasta 6 reported an aerial victory on August 17. However, the day before, an E.V suffered catastrophic wing failure. Two days later, the same failure cost Lt. Rolff his life. All E.Vs were immediately grounded. A detailed investigation showed that there were fatal defects in the wing assembly caused by slack manufacturing processes. Although it was not his fault, Fokker took this opportunity to re-design and strengthen the wing. Existing E.V aircraft received new wings and newly built aircraft were designated D.VIII. Modified aircraft made it back to the front in November, too late for service. However, the aircraft saw active service after that war with the Freikorps air units, the Polish Air Force against Russia, the Dutch Air Force and an unspecified number went to France and the USA.

Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Marion Sprague Three Masted Schooner 1899 - 29 Inches Long, 601

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


Very rare, large-scale deluxe edition from the late 1940s/very early 1950s. This version is hardly ever seen. Measures 29 inches long and 16 inches high when built. Features a 90%+ cut factory wooden hull, four factory sealed bags of metal fittings (over 100 fittings total), a large sheet of beautiful sail cloth, numerous hardwood dowels and pre-cut square wood of many sizes, metal stock, two types of rigging thread, colorful flag sheet and fantastic full size plans that have detailed assembly instructions and rigging diagrams. Inside, the kit is exactly as it left the factory. The fittings are all in clear bags stapled to the original Ideal 'blue' backing cardstock. Sail cloth, printwood and wood stock are all held together with the original factory rubber bands. Even the original factory packing tissue is present. The box is complete and very nice, but the corners are repaired from the inside correctly as they had split. The plans have never been unfolded but have some damage to one side from the way they were packed by Ideal. They are still completely usable. The three-masted Marion Sprague schooner was built in 1899. Being far more economical to operate than the large, two-masted schooner, they soon monopolized all coastal trade up and down the US seaboard after the civil war. Ideal was a famous producer of early model kits. In 1911 they released their first aircraft kit, which put them among the first USA model companies. Ideal was unique also in that they released large civil ships and ocean liners.

Pit Road Mikasa Japanese Battleship, 1/700, HM-10

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+


Superbly cast resin waterline model. Castings are superior in detail to injection molded parts. Features resin hull and larger parts, numerous precision cast metal details, metal rod stock and extensive PE parts including railings. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions. Mikasa was the only ship of her class and took part in the Russo-Japanese war. In the late 1890s the Japanese shipyards were not quite yet ready for such a project, so the Navy contracted with Vickers in Great Britain to build this ship, which is actually a highly modified Formidable class. Mikasa saw a great amount of action at Port Arthur and the Battle of the Yellow Sea. She was preserved as a museum ship in 1923. Mikasa suffered from neglect during and after WWII, but was restored to her former glory in the 1950s after a campaign led by the Japan Times and Admiral Chester Nimitz. The Mikasa is the only surviving pre-dreadnought in the world.
