Aurora Douglas M-2 Mailplane - Western Air Express CAM Route, 1/48, 111-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

First issue dated 1957 with classic Jo Kotula artwork. Molded in deep gloss burgundy and black plastic. Never started and inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. This aircraft has a fascinating history. From the internet: The United States Post Office had been running the air mail service since 1918 mainly using variants of the de Havilland DH.4 biplane. In 1925, it decided to modernize and placed an order with Douglas for a replacement aircraft based on the Douglas O-2 observation biplane. The company modified an O-2 by covering over the forward cockpit to make a mail compartment and moving the pilot into what had been the observer's cockpit. The aircraft was designated the DAM-1 (Douglas Air-Mail-One) but this was soon shortened to M-1. The M-1 used the same Liberty engine as the DH.4, which was available in large numbers. Small modifications were made to the exhaust system to keep fumes away from the pilot and the design was considered a success, but was not ordered into production. When the Contract Air Mail (CAM) routes were introduced, the newly formed Western Air Express Company (later Western Airlines) ordered six mailplanes with the designation M-2. The main change from the M-1 was that the tunnel radiator was replaced with a frontal type. It also had the provision to carry a passenger instead of mail in the front cockpit. Just before Western Air Express introduced the aircraft into service (in April 1926 from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City), the Post Office ordered 50 aircraft designated M-3 for its major route network. The M-3 had only detailed differences from the M-2.

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

First issue from 1956 with square Northern Lights logo. This logo was only used for that year and was quickly replaced in 1957 with the well-known 'sunburst' oval with 'Famous Fighters' written in the border. The box has as excellent color and gloss. Molded in the correct metallic deep burgundy and black. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Please NOTE: the box displays 'excellent' or better, but it is graded 'very good+' because there is impact damage on the left short side. James Cox, who did much of the early artwork for Aurora, created a timeless classic for this issue - this artwork was used well into the 1960s and possibly up till the final 'Big A' logo boxes before Aurora's demise. Mr. Cox also did unique artwork for the early Aurora Catalogs as well. Please see the article about Mr. Cox located on this website.

Originally there was no evidence of the parent company on the surface. The State Coach of England was the first kit, issued in 1953. More kits of excellent quality followed. Revell completely took over the line in 1954 and in that year and the next, kits were labeled 'Revell' with a 'Miniature Masterpiece' label on the box top also.

MPM Fairey Battle Tmk.I Trainer - RCAF Royal Canadian Air Force Kingston Ontario / Polish Flying Service Training School Hucknall 1941, 1/72, 72096

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

A very nice kit of a rare subject. The Fairey Battle may have been state-of-the-art in 1936, but by the onset of WWII it was badly outclassed in every way. Losses were so high that by mid/late 1940 they were all but completely withdrawn from front-line service. However, there was a need for training and 100 Battles were built as dual-control trainers with separate cockpits. Another 266 target towing variants were also supplied. This is a very nice kit will all fine recessed panel lines, superb resin cockpits, detailed gear wells and more. Includes paint guide and decals for both aircraft listed. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.
