Academy Boeing B-52H Stratofortress with GMA-87A Skybolt / AGM-69 SRAM / AGM-28 Hound Dog / ADM-20 Quail Missiles - BAGGED - (ex Crown), 1/144, 4432

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box

Sold   

NOTE: bagged kit. There is no box. The box is shown for reference only. Very popular kit from ex-Crown molds. From 1993. Excellent model with a huge array of extras. Has all recessed panel line detail. Features all the missiles listed and 5 extra clear display stands for each. Has decals for camo aircraft shown on the box artwork. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The Skybolt was a plan to deliver an ALBM (Air Launched Ballistic Missile) from a B-52 to greatly enhance it's survivability. Skybolt failed 5 of 6 initial tests, but finally was successful. However, the program was canceled due to the availability of the Polaris SLBM. Plans to equip the RAF Vulcan with Skybolt fell through and left with British with no modern nuclear force, causing them to adapt the Polaris SLBM and passing strategic nuclear capability from the RAF to the RN. AGM-28 Hound Dog was a sleek design to help B-52 penetrate thick SAM defenses. Hound Dog could use it's engines to help the B-52 during take off and then could be refueled from the B-52's tanks. This was an important point as the B-52 carried 2 of these missiles at 5 tons each. Hound Dog had a range of 200 to 500 miles (depending on launch height) at Mach 2.0 and an accuracy of one mile at those ranges. The warhead was 4 megatons. SRAM was a nuclear-armed short range missile carried in quantity of 20. SRAM was designed to blast holes in defenses in front of the B-52 and for the final target. Quail was a decoy that would mimic the B-52 with radar reflectors, infrared, radar repeaters and chaff decoys. Quail did reach operational status and operated on some Hound Dog-equipped B-52s.

Revell SMS Emden and SMS Dresden - WWI Light Cruiser / Commerce Raider, 1/350, 05500

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Includes both superb ship models from modern 2006 Revell of Germany molds. Both are full hull models with excellent detail. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The story of Emden's Indian Ocean raiding career in WWI is legendary. The story of Dresden's short career in WWI also interesting. She was serving with the German East Asiatic Squadron; near the start of hostilities they made a voyage across the Pacific Ocean hoping to go around South America and return to Germany via the Atlantic. The squadron came across Sir Christopher Cradock's British Squadron in the South Pacific at Coronel. There the Germans won a great victory over Cradock; the problem was that now the Germans were sited and their intentions known. The British positioned battlecruisers at the Falkland islands in anticipation; they did not have long to wait. When the Germans were sighted, the British casually got ready then sailed, knowing their superior speed and gun range could make short work of the biggest ships the Germans had. The British were correct; the Germans were soundly defeated off the Falklands. However, the Dresden was the only German ship to survive. She went back around Cape Horn in the Pacific and successfully hid for several months, only to be eventually found near Mas a Tierra (Chile) by Glasgow and Kent. Knowing that escape was impossible, the Dresden was scuttled by her crew. The wreck still lies in the harbor today.

Aurora P-51 Mustang with Horse Artwork, 1/48, 118-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

Rare and classic kit with the famous 'Bucking Airborne Horse.' The box is in 'Excellent++' condition. It has factory-new color and gloss, no tape or tape marks (not even factory sealing tape!), no price tags or marks, no fading, stains, tears or missing litho. All four corners are solid and original. There is general light wear as the only flaw. The artwork is dated 1956, but this kit is likely about 1957 - note the 'Famous Fighters' in the logo border and the lack of a Parents' Magazine Seal. The artwork is the original issue P-51 with a slight downward angle and the horse added. This model has many working features, which was unusual for aurora. Includes detailed engine with removable cowling, full cockpit and retractable landing gear. Molded in gloss olive drab and clear. This kit has never been started.

Aurora British SE-5 Scout - With Parents' Magazine Seal, 1/48, 103-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

Sold   

Still factory sealed and in amazing investment-grade 'Mint' condition. The seal is 100% intact. Rare box art version with perfect color and gloss. Hardbox is dated 1960 and it appears that this design was only issued for a 1 or 2 years at the very most. This short-lived box art exists in two variations: one with the Parents' Magazine Seal and one with out. The one with the seal is the rarer of the two.

Aurora Fokker D-7 - (D-VII), 1/48, 106-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

Sold   

Still factory sealed an in investment-grade 'Mint' condition. This is the third issue and it is much rarer than the first. Please note that it retains the original 1956 box art, but the square Aurora 'Northern Lights' logo is gone, replace by the to-be classic sunburst 'Famous Fighters' oval. The price extension is 79 cents. There is a Parents' Magazine logo at the right, making this kit about 1958/59. The second issue is identical except for a 69 cent extension.

Aurora Boeing F4B-4 - (F4B4), 1/48, 122-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM+

Sold   

Still factory sealed. Dated 1958 and has fantastic Jo Kotula boxart. This is the Parents' Magazine issue with the seal located in the lower right. At the time this was considered a fine kit and highly rated in reviews. The F4B-4 was a classic 1930s Navy Biplane Fighter that is still famous for their colorful paint jobs at that that time. Cowl, tail and trim color would vary with the group's Aircraft Carrier (Ranger, Lexington or Saratoga) and the aircraft's position in the flight formation.

Aurora French Nieuport 11, 1/48, 101-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

Very rare 2nd issue that turns up less than the first (1956) release. For a long time I did not know this issue even existed. Please note the '69' cent price extension, sunburst oval logo with 'Famous Fighters' in the border, the Parents' Magazine seal and even the 69 cent price circle at the upper right. Normally this issue is only seen with a 79 cent price extension. This would be the late 1957/early '58 issue. This kit is one of a very successful line of 1/48 WWI aircraft that Aurora launched in 1956. The line sold so well that new kits were added into the 1960s. Molded in the correct gloss olive drab green and black. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Even includes the original factory tissue packing paper. Thanks to Eugene DuBey, we know some history on the aircraft that Aurora modeled. The tail # on the kit rudder is 1354, the number of a Nie 16 that served with CAM de Dunquerke / St Pol sur Mer", 1916-17.

Aurora Albatross D-3 - (Albatros D-III), 1/48, 104-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

Sold   

Rare kit in amazing, investment-grade 'Near Mint+' condition inside and out. Most likely the third issue of this kit and much harder to find than the first issue. Box is dated 1956 but this is from 1958 due to the sunburst oval 'Famous Fighters' logo, the silver factory-stamped out '69' price replaced with 79 and the Parents' Magazine seal at the lower left. Molded in gloss green and black. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Even includes the original factory packing tissue.

Protar Renault Turbo RE23, 1/12, 170-P

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

Sold   

Large-scale kit that is very highly detailed and builds up like the actual car. The engine alone is a masterpiece and a kit in itself. Also includes brake lines, cables, cockpit instrument wiring, ignition wiring, completely detailed chassis, working suspension, full interior and much more. Molded in bright yellow, white, black, silver, clear, chrome plate, a very large number of flexible lines, rubber tires and metal parts (such as suspension springs). The kit has not been started. All bags but one are still factory sealed. One bag was split, so I inventoried it and it is 100% complete. With decals and full, illustrated instructions. NOTE: the decals are 98% intact but have moisture damage. Because of that, they have the typical cracking. You can buy them online from a man in Belgium does make a brand-new set of decals for this model. But you can make your own if you wish; please refer to the two articles (located on this website) which explain how you can repair and duplicate these.

Aurora Spad XIII, 1/48, 107-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

First issue hardbox dated 1957 with great Jo Kotula artwork. Please note the 69 cent price extension and oval 'Famous Fighters' sunburst logo. This is part of a popular and very successful series of 1/48 scale WWI aircraft that Aurora started in 1956 and added to well into the 1960s. Many of the line were in production right up until the demise of Aurora in the mid 1970s Molded in correct high-gloss olive drab and black plastic. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Even includes the factory tissue packing paper. Please NOTE: this kit displays slightly better than the 'Very Good' rating but is graded as such because there is a 1/2" x 1/4" tape tear on the lower long side.

Aurora Fokker DR-1 Triplane, 1/48, 105-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

Sold   

Dated 1956 with Jim Cox box art. This model is in investment-grade 'Near Mint+' condition inside and out. Most likely the third issue and much rarer than the other releases. Note the 69 cent price extension, oval sunburst 'Famous Fighters' logo and the Parents' Magazine Seal; most likely dating this kit from 1958. Molded in a fantastic gloss metallic burgundy and black plastic. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
