Pocher Ferrari Testarossa Spyder (Pocher), 1/8, 192

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$685   

This is the Pocher kit with the Testors/Pocher label. In 1986 Pininfarina created this very special Spider on the basis of the Ferrari Testarossa. By strengthening the chassis, cutting the roof and modifying the trunk the car was given a unique appearance of a very luxury Spider. Very few of this special Testarossa were made. Pocher chose to create this model for it's 25th Anniversary. Although Pocher is no longer in business, they are acknowledged as the finest car model makers ever. This kit features all metal body and body panels that are perfectly factory primed and pre-painted white like the box art. Every detail of the suspension, interior, engine and truck are recreated in this magnificent model. The kit is in 1/8 scale and measures 56 cm (over 22 inches long) when built. The steering works, the doors, hood and trunk open and close, headlights open and retract and much, much more. The body and all body panels are metal - the balance of the kit is metal and injection molded plastic and a number of other materials such as flexible wires for the ignition, clear parts, real rubber tires, etc. The kit has never been started and is complete. Inside, it is like new. The parts that were factory bag sealed are still sealed. The parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete. The painted parts are in perfect condition and well protected with all factory packaging. UNLESS you specify otherwise, this kit will be shipped in the original Testors heavy cardboard shipping box. If you wish to have it shipped inside another box, let me know and there will be additional cost for shipping.

Please read the article on this website about older HO train kits and the modeling revolution they caused in the late 1930s/1940s.

Aurora Boeing B-29 Superfortress, 1/76, 372-259

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$125   

Rare 1957-1962 issue retaining the same artwork as the 1956 issue. This kit has arguably the most dramatic and fanciful B-29 composition from the 'Golden Era' of modeling. Note the square 'Northern Lights' logo has been replaced with the 'Famous Fighters' Aurora sunburst oval logo and there is a '$2.59' price circle at the upper right. I believe the 3rd issue. The box is in 'very good' condition with nice color and gloss. There are no split corner and no repairs. It does have general even wear. Molded in gloss silver and clear, with a big clear 'triangle-based' Aurora stand. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes 'near mint' condition decals and instructions. Responding to market information that boys wanted larger kits, Aurora introduced the B-26 followed by the B-29 and B-25, all of which sold well for many years- almost right up until the end.
