Aurora P-38 Lightning Brooklyn - Famous Fighters of All Nations, 1/48, 99-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++


First issue early 1950s from the Aurora Brooklyn factory. Molded with correct light gloss blue and clear plastic with correct Brooklyn stand, decals and instructions. Even has original packing tissue paper. Decals are in beautiful condition and are still flat. Box is excellent with light scuffing as the only flaws. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The Aurora issues of the 1/48 scale P-38 are interesting to say the least. The first issue is the Brooklyn kit with the P-38/B-24 box artwork. Inside, the plastic is light blue with minimal surface detail and a clear canopy and rectangular stand that says 'Aurora Plastic Corp. Brooklyn, 4, N.Y.'. There are no landing gear, gear doors or mass balances. The second issue has identical box art, plastic color, decals and rectangular stand, but the box and instructions says 'West Hempstead' instead of Brooklyn. The clear stand mold has had 'Brooklyn' milled out, and there is no location on the stand. The third issue has the same artwork, but the full color 'Aurora Line' logo is used - but the big changes were on the inside. Aurora modified the molds, adding a pitot tube, elevator mass balances and landing gear struts, wheels and doors. The decals and stand remain the same, but the new instructions reflect the changes to the molds. This time the kit is molded in an attractive metallic blue. The fourth issue dropped the Jim Cox artwork in favor of a new P-38 flying from right to left across a threatening sky. The plastic still metallic light blue and the decals and stand remain unchanged. The new details were retained. The fifth issue was 1959. The oval 'Famous Fighters' logo was used with Jo Kotula artwork of two P-38s. The detail level of the kit remained the same, but it was molded in olive drab and clear. The newer 'Triangle' base was added at this time. Further issues kept this box artwork, but the oval logo changed as well as the price extensions.

Michael Burnette Productions One Small Step - Apollo Astronaut, 1/5

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


So rare that I can only find reference to three of these ever changing hands. Few were made and they were $125 new. This large, original kit stands over 14 inches tall when assembled. The master was sculpted by Greg Polutanovich (the famous sculpture and Hollywood makeup artist) and produced by Michael Burnett of Hollywood special effects fame. Polutanovich based this model on actual NASA photographs. This is a professionally-made, high-definition resin statue of the Apollo Astronaut with with a moon base. It does require minor assembly and full painting. The smaller parts are still in the factory sealed bag. The larger parts have been inventoried complete. Includes instructions and color decals (for Astronaut Adlrin). Never started and inventoried complete. Michael Burnett Productions (MBP) was a special makeup effects company located in North Hollywood, California. From 1985 until 2004 MBP created Special Makeup Effects, costumes and props for the entertainment industry. Please note that this kit is solid resin and is very heavy, 11 pounds packed.

Revell Lockheed F-94 Starfire 1st Issue - Pre 'S' One Piece Box, 1/56, H201-59

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Very Rare. This is one of the first three aircraft models issued by Revell back in 1953. This kit is correct with no rivets and no landing gear as well as the unique stand that was only issued with these three kits (and their gift set). This box is in excellent condition, complete with all end flaps and has not been crushed - usually these thin one-piece boxes are in very bad condition. The box has never been repaired. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. Instructions are printed on the back of the box. It is very interesting to note that this kit is different from the 'Pre-S' issue in the following ways: no rivet detail, almost no panel lines, different part numbers, pilots are a part of the fuselage (busts only), one piece wings and absence of the pods at the half-wingspan line, no landing gear and no holes for such, very early 'Colortone' logo decals and a silver, two piece plastic stand of a unique design that was never used again.

Airedale Castings Japanese Type 2 Motor Launch Ka-mi, 1/35, 35024

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Very, very rare; only 50 were made and this is number 21. Very highly detailed model in high definition resin that includes full flotation gear. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions. The Special Type 2 Launch Ka-Mi (Toku-ni-shiki uchibitei kami) was the first amphibious tank of the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) in WWII. However, too few were produced too late for it to have an impact. The Ka-Mi was designed, initially, to assault islands. However, by the time it entered service, the Japanese forces were already on the defensive. They were used for infantry support, sometimes as moving pillboxes. Three formed the 1st Yokosuka Special Naval Landing Force based at Saipan, while two saw action in Leyte in 1944. They were affected to various naval garrison detachments in the Southern Pacific and East Indies. The USMC encountered the Ka-Mi when assaulting the Marianna and Marshall islands, at Guam, Aitape and Biak in New Guinea, and during the invasion of Leyte. Some sources claim that, off the coast of Leyte, USMC LVTs attacked and destroyed some Ka-Mis. Two survived to this day at the Kubinka Museum and on Palau island.
