1963 first issue of this well detailed, large 1/16 scale kit. Molded in black, chrome, red and with real rubber tires. Never started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the factory sealed bag; the parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete. With instructions. Please note that the box may look better than the 'good' grade but it has a light stain on the right side of the box top and side. Aurora was renowned for turning a profit and for keeping expenses down. In researching new kit subjects, they came upon a forgotten jewel - the Hudson Miniatures line of 1/16 scale wooden kits. Hudson had discontinued this line due to lack of sales of wooden kits. But the Hudson models were second to none in quality, research and documentation. Aurora was quick to realize this and used the research and layout from these kits to create the subjects for this 'Old Timers' series. It is fortunate for us that they did, because in most cases this is the only injection molded kit of these rare and classic early automobiles.

Aurora Spad XIII, 1/48, 107-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$48   

Second issue hardbox is dated 1957 with great Jo Kotula artwork. Although dated '57, it is from about 1963 due to the lack of 'Famous Fighters' in the border of the oval logo. This is part of a popular and very successful series of 1/48 scale WWI aircraft that Aurora started in 1956 and added to well into the 1960s. Many of the line were in production right up until the demise of Aurora in the mid 1970s. Molded in correct olive drab and black plastic. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Please note that the box is only 'good' with scuffs as show, especially across the top.

Inside, the kit is the large 1/28 'S' issue with detailed rotary engine the moves with the prop, authentic fine fabric texture finish over ribs, complete cockpit with movable control stick and rudder bar, removable cowling, pilot and crew figures, rigging instructions, correct Waldo Pepper decals (with USA 'N' registration numbers) and instructions.

Second issue from 1960 which retained the magnificent 'S' boxart. Large scale model with excellent detail typical of all older Revell sailing ship kits.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$39   

1990 Lindberg issue from the original, quality 1960s Pyro molds. Full hull kit with very good molded detail, vacuform billowing sails, rigging material, rigging diagram and display stand. Measures about 8.5 inches long when assembled. Molded in tan with white vacuform sails. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions.

Rare early issue from Pyro, likely from the very late 1950s. The excellent box painting was by Howard E. Arnold. This is a very good model of the famous fishing schooner that was built by Louis G. Thebaud and christened by his wife Gertrude. After being initially defeated by the Bluenose, the Thebaud won the Sir Thomas Lipton Trophy in 1930 in a hard-fought contest with her rival. The contest is still disputed to this day. Nicely detailed for that time and measures 20 inches long when built. Features 125 parts, full hull with display stand, deck fittings, rigging material and full rigging instructions. Molded in black and dark wood swirl plastics. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: this is a tiny short shot on the port side of the forwards bow. It is easily repairable and measures about 1/8 x 1/16 inches.

Morgan, HMS Bounty, HMS Ark Royal, USS Constellation, British Bomb Ketch, Chinese War Junk, Elsie - Gloucester Fisherman, Henri Grace A'Dieu, Dutch Staten Jacht, Gotta Le Jon and others. 50 Cent/75 Cent kits in 1967 included the Mayflower, Barbary Pirate, USS Constitution, Santa Maria, Golden Hind, Half Moon, Bon Homme Richard, Brig of War, HMS Victory, Flying Cloud, Nina, Pinta, Santa Maria, La Reale French Galley, Venetian Carrack, Roman Merchant, Spanish Galleon and others.

Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Sloop-Of-War Ferret 1812 - With Prefabricated Rat Lines, 2502-89

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$79   

Very rare. This early plastic model kit is dated 1955. It also may be the first all-plastic ship kit ever issued by Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Company, which was simply known as 'Ideal' at this time. Under both names Ideal was famous for their extensive line of military and civil ships made with wood and metal. Although the exact story of how this kit came to will probably never be known, we can take an accurate guess. Since ideal was a manufacturer of model kits, they certainly noticed the Gowland & Gowland Highway Pioneers and how they had launched a new sector of the Hobby Industry. After seeing Varney, early Revel or Gowland & Gowland's small ship models (likely the latter), Ideal decided to make plastic kit of their own. A subject was chosen - most likely based on their successful wood and metal kit of the Sloop-of-War Ferret, which was a 23.5 inch long model. Scaling this down, Ideal designed and had molds cut to what was a high standard for that time. The model measures 8.5" long when assembled. Credit also goes to Ideal's market research who realized this model had a different audience than all their other kits; instead of the boring two or one color boxes, this one features full color illustration and even the instructions are a work of sketch art with pirates assembling the ship and much more. This is far superior to the Pyro kits of this size which were produced in the later 1950s. The Ideal Ferret features over 40 pieces (many of them quite small), a realistically mold and scale one-piece full hull, almost all deck fittings separately molded, a display stand, completely factory made fabric rat lines (a real plus and nicely done) as well as vividly illustrated instructions and an excellent painting guide. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions in 'excellent' condition.
