Aurora German Gotha G-V Bomber - Abare Issue - (GV), 1/48, 126-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

$90   

Ross Abare issue Gotha in amazing investment-grade, 'Near Mint' condition. Mr. Abare, a rare kits dealer in the earliest days of the hobby, contracted with Aurora to produce a copy of the original 1958 kit. However, Aurora has the printers use the mid 1960s oval logo without the 'Famous Fighters' in the border- thus forever separating the Abare issue from the original issue. Mr. Abare was reportedly quite upset, as he wanted exact copies. Molded in deep burgundy and black plastic. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

First issue dated 1958 with 'Famous Fighters in the sunburst logo, Parents Magazine seal and classic Jo Kotula artwork. Molded in a stunning gloss deep burgundy and black. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. This model is part of a very successful 1/48 scale WWI series that Aurora started in 1956. They sold so well that they introduced new kits almost annually well into the 1960s. Some sold well right up until the end of Aurora in the mid 1970s.

Aurora DH-10 Bomber, 1/48, 125-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc-

$79   

Dated 1957. This is the first issue of this large scale (1/48) kit and part of the famous Aurora WWI series of 1/48 scale aircraft. The series began in 1956 and Aurora added new kits into the early 1960s. The line proved incredibly popular that these kits were included in the 'mold upgrade' in the 1970s before Aurora went out of business. Includes three crew, ground base and two ground crew. Molded in the correct gloss dark olive, black and clear plastic. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$125   

Rare, still factory sealed kit dated 1959. The model is in amazing investment-grade "Mint" condition. The seal is intact. Although dated 1959, the lack of 'Famous Fighters' within the boarder of the sunburst logo dates this kit from the very early 1960s. The 'Famous Fighters' is in the border of the two logos on the two short sides.

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$48   

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. Molded in the correct metallic deep burgundy and black plastic. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. 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.

Guillows Curtiss P-40 Warhawk - 16 inch Wingspan Rubber Powered Balsa Wood Kit, 501

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$22   

From the 1960s. One of a very popular 16.5 inch wingspan series of World War 2 stick and tissue flying kits. Includes die cut balsa parts, vacuform nose, wheels, plastic propeller, hardware, vacuform canopy, colored tissue, insignia and full size plans with detailed building instructions. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Guillow's founder, Paul K. Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.
