Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Rare and easily the finest large scale Duesenberg model. This very large car was one of the first supercharged production automobiles and cost $17,000 in 1933.

The model features a highly detailed engine with spark plug wires and a removable hood, a rolling chassis build up just like the real car with includes full suspension, exhaust, drivetrain and gas tank details. The front wheels are steerable. Suspension components are cast metal and the exhaust headers are stainless steel. The top and trunk can be removed. Molded in black, white, clear and chrome with real rubber tires. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the factory sealed bags. The few parts that were not factory sealed (two body pieces and the hood) have been inventoried complete including instructions.

Molded in the correct gloss gray with flexible black tracks. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present.

Aurora M-46 General Patton Tank, 1/48, 301-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Second issue of this classic kit. Although dated 1956, this kit is from 1957 and carries the then-new oval sunburst with 'Famous Fighters' in the border. In keeping with a quick and inexpensive change over, the box utilizes the 1956 artwork, but yellows out the 'Northern Lights' rectangle and adds the new oval. Beautiful box with brilliant colors. The box would grade 'Near Mint', but is only graded 'Excellent' because there is a closed tear (no missing litho) on one the lower long side. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Revell V-2 With Trailer And Launcher - History Makers Issue, 1/69, 0560

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG

Sold   

Still factory sealed. 1994 re-release of the 1982 release- which itself is from the very popular 1960s original molds. Has many operational features including the V-2 missile with removable panel with full interior including fuel tanks, rocket engine and more, working launcher and transport trailer/erector and crew members. Please note that Revell lists this kit as 1/54 but I have noted it as 1/69 because the built missile measures 8" tall and the actual missile is 45.9 feet tall. That comes out to be 1/69.

Ardpol Curtiss B-2 Condor, 1/72, 72-046

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Rare, very highly detailed resin model from 2003 features numerous PE brass details, film instruments, very good cockpit and crew stations and more. Includes full decals & paint guide for multiple aircraft. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. From aviastar.org: In development at the same time as the Keystone XB-1, the Curtiss XB-2 was quite similar but proved to be the superior aircraft. Like the Keystone design, the XB-2 also mounted dual Lewis guns in turrets located in the rear of the engine nacelles.A crew of five was carried by this bomber with a performance rating that placed it far above any planes in its class. Testing of the XB-2 began in September, 1927, and though the qualities were superior to competing types, the higher cost of the B-2 resulted in a limited production order of only 12 planes in June, 1928. The first B-2 was delivered in May, 1929.In view of the excellent performance of the Condor, it is interesting to note the biplane tail assembly used. Production B-2's were the first aircraft of the type to incorporate tail wheels instead of the skid which assisted in braking, but was also responsible for structural failures.

Aurora Aero Commander1121 Jet Commander, 1/72, 85-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

1968 issue hardbox. The legend is true; these molds were lost and/or destroyed in a train wreck. Monogram bought Aurora's molds and was transporting them to the Monogram factory when the accident happened. This model features recessed panel lines, full interior with rear bulkhead, couch, chairs and console, cockpit with chairs, instrument panel, control yokes, forward bulkhead and clear windows. Includes optional position landing gear and colorful decals. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The Jet Commander was the jet-powered follow-on to the famous Aero Commander twin private aircraft. But shortly after 1121 delivery began in 1965, Rockwell bought Aero Commander. The 1121 was competition for the Rockwell Sabreliner business jet in the same class, so Rockwell sold the Jet Commander to IAI. Famous nicknames assigned to the early 1121s included the familiar 'ground pounder', 'lead sled' and more unique 'Jet Commode'. Initial releases under IAI were called the 1123. Improvements to the 1123 design lead to the IAI 1124 Westwind powered by Garrett 731 fan engines. I won't recount here all of the nicknames for the IAI Jet Commanders...but the most printable include "Bagel Bomber" and "Yom Kippur Clipper."

Carl Goldberg Models 1/2A Blazer 40 inch Wingspan - .049 Free Flight Model Airplane, G1

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Sold   

Still factory sealed and very rare in this condition. Large parasol free flight model designed for .049 power by one of the most famous pioneers and leaders in model aviation. Features all die cut balsa sheet wood and plywood parts, fully formed trailing edges, formed wire landing gear, finished wheel, hardware, covering tissue and excellent instructions and plans. Carl Goldberg was a gifted designer of model aircraft, and his career spanned the evolution of flying models. His designs and number of titles won in competition at the Nationals is legendary. His first competition was the 1928 Nationals, where he received honorable mention. By 1934 he won the indoor Nats and in 1935 he opened a Hobby Shop, among the first in the nation (the first one was probably opened by Cleveland Models Ed Packard). Awards came quickly. He wrote articles for Model Airplane News, and was Comet's top designer from 1939 till 1945. After Comet, he worked with Mike Schlesinger and Sid Axelrod on what eventually became Top-Flite Models. In 1955 he founded Carl Goldberg Models and released a still-popular line of scale, rubber, gas, glider and RC models.
