Aurora Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina, 1/74, 374-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Rare, first issue artwork from about 1955-56. This was a fine effort by Aurora for that time and an impressive model when assembled. Features retracting pontoons and rotating props. Includes correct early logo instructions which show the clear 'Triangle World' stand. This correct stand is included. This must be one of the first instances of the 'Triangle' stand being used as it is normally associated with oval 'Famous Fighter' logo kits. Molded in gloss silver and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: one small "US NAVY" decal is cut out and missing. The rest of the decals are intact and in 'very good+' condition. The box displays better than the 'good' rating but is graded as such because of there is general wear as shown, fading on the right short side panel and some creasing on the lower long side panel. It is interesting to note that the early Aurora PBY issue has at least three small variations to the box top. The very first issue says '1/4 SCALE MODEL' at the top right. Clearly, this kit is not 1/48 scale and someone at Aurora corrected it. Following that, there are two known corrections: early and late. On the early version, the '1/4' was blotted out with a dark blue oval or circle and '5/32' was added after the word 'SCALE.' It was now correct, but the appearance was not completely professional. This box is the later version - on the next box order, they kept the '1/4' blotted out but added a proper looking '5/32' in front of the blot.

Monogram Racing Duesenberg Slot Car With Tiger X-200 Motor - Race As Stock Or Classic, 1/24, SR2406-698

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Very rare model for the advanced Monogram collector or slot car enthusiast. Dated 1964. When the slot car craze took hold, Monogram boldly introduced nine very well engineered 1/24 and 1/32 kits. The models were so well done and expensive that they did not sell well; $7 was a small fortune back when most models were between 29 and 98 cents. The Monogram Mercedes claims to be the "Most Complete Detailed Racing Model - Ready to Assemble and Go!" and it was no idle boast. Features light-weight brass chassis that is strong and rigid, precision steel threaded-end axles, bronze bearings, steel drawn crown gear, nylon pickup, braided pickup brushes, brass screws, nut and other hardware, precision lightweight aluminum machined wheels with threaded hubs, powerful new tiger X-200 12V motor, Tiger Traction rubber racing tires with complete Goodyear details and more. The car parts are molded in blue, black, white, chrome plate and clear plastic. Inside, the interior display cardboard and plastic is in 'very good++' condition. All of the parts that were originally factory sealed are still factory sealed except the motor. The motor is NOS (New Old Stock) and has never been run. The parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried 100% complete and includes 'near mint+' condition decals. Includes amazing 'mint' condition instructions and the " Tuning Tips / Alignment / International Racing Colors" booklet. Please NOTE that the box has correct and neat repairs to three closed split corners. They were repaired from the inside with light cardstock and book binding cement. The entire line of Monogram Slot Cars consisted of a 1/32 MGA Sports Car, 1/32 Deuce Roadster and the following 1/24 scale vehicles: '55 Chevy Hardtop, '40 Ford Pickup, Duesenberg, '34 Ford Coupe, '36 Ford Coupe, '58 T-Bird and Mercedes 540K. If you know your Monogram cars, you can see that Monogram wisely utilized the molds of pre-existing Four Star kits to make these motorized versions from.

Lindberg F7U-1 Cutlass - (F7U1), 1/48, 510-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

1956 or '57 Gaedke artwork with three aircraft and the carrier. Molded in medium blue and clear and includes decals for the box art aircraft including red and white checkerboards for the rudders. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. Please note that the box displays better than the 'good+' rating but is graded as such because there is clear tape on the long sides and also tape pull damage to one side as well as general wear. Dating Lindberg kits is problematic to a near complete lack of release information; early catalogs normally do not have dates, and there are no dates on early boxes or instructions & decals. However, by records kept when the kits were purchased new, we know this kit was issued either in 1956 or 1957.

Lindberg F-86D Sabre Jet Fighter - with First Logo, 1/48, 522-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Very rare first Lindberg issue with the 'script' logo and 'narrow' box. From the mid 1950s with dramatic Ray Gaedke artwork. Molded in high gloss silver and clear. Includes script logo decals and box logo instructions which was not unusual. The box was originally numbered 522-79 and has been over-stamped with a factory '98' for the price. Lindberg always used up any old stock and never seemed to waste any boxes, parts, decals or instructions. Paul Lindberg's consistent year-to-year bottom line profits are testimony to this. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. Lindberg is a company with a fascinating history The original 'Lindberg Line' stretches back to the 1930s when Paul Lindberg drew plans for famous modeling magazines and marketed his balsa wood 'stick and tissue' by urging dealers to carry the '...Complete Lindberg Line'. After the war, Lindberg and Olsen had a strong hand in early United States injection molded kit development. Please see the article located on this website about early USA plastic kit manufacturers.

Pyro 1936 Duesenberg SSJ LaGrande-Bodied Roadster, 1/32, C412-125

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

Sold   

Still factory sealed. 1966 Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of it's kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to, in this case Gary Cooper and Clark Gable's automobiles. This was the Duesenberg Company's last great automobile before going out of business in 1937. The Model J was a superb automobile and the fastest and finest car of it's day. Never to be outdone, the two brothers made two supercharged 'Super-Duesenbergs' were constructed from J models and are referred to as SSJs. The out put was a whopping 400 bhp. (The term SSJ was never used by the factory) The model includes rubber tires, chrome plated parts, colored injection molded parts and clear parts. Features detailed chassis, complete motor and interior and a removable hood.
