Aurora US Army 8 Inch Howitzer Gun, 1/48, 307-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$64   

Second issue hardbox from 1963 of this rare kit with great John Steel artwork. This is a well detailed model for that time which features 96 pieces, moving wheels, breech, recoil mechanism, limber and gun trails. Molded in gloss olive drab green and with black rubber tires. NOTE: this kit has very minor and 'professional' quality subassembly to only two parts: the gun barrel halves. There is no other assembly and zero painting. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. The box displays higher than the 'very good++' rating but it graded as such because there is scuffing on the four sides; the sides only rate 'good+.'

Aurora Albatross D-3 Red Dot Issue - (Albatros D.III / DIII), 1/48, 104-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$48   

Rare very early issue from 1956 with Northern Lights logo and the 69 cent price circle on the right of the box top. What is most unusual is that the price is within a red-filled circle; this is the second instance of this that I have seen in more than 26 years. Just when you think you have Aurora's kit history figured out, they throw you another curve ball! Molded in the correct glossy dark green and black. Decals and instructions are correct for the first issue as well. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Even includes the original factory tissue packing material.

Aurora Boeing P-26A Peashooter, 1/43, 115-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$44   

Very rare 1957 issue with the original artwork and the then-new Sunburst Oval logo with 'Famous Fighters' in the border. This was a one-year only issue because in 1958 the new Jo Kotula artwork was introduced. The P-26A was originally issued shortly after Aurora moved to the West Hempstead facility on Long Island, NY. Molded in the correct glossy light blue and clear with the early style Aurora rectangular stand, correct Tatem Company decals and the correct instructions. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The box has wear as shown and is only 'good.' Aurora was the only early US model company known for consistently turning a profit. They never wasted anything and that included instructions, stands and decals. If any were left, they were used (in the new style box, like in this case) until they were used up.

Hawk Republic F-84F Thunderstreak, 1/72, 606-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$34   

Early 1960s release with classic box art by Bill Campbell. If you look closely, Bill painted one of Hawk's founders, Richard (Dick) Mates in the cockpit of the nearest fighter. This is a very nicely molded model with excellent fit and all recessed panel lines. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Thanks to Jean-Claude who told me that the boxart shows a standard F-84F but in reality the model inside is of prototype YF-96A, (aka YF-84F), s/n 49-2430. this aircraft was later modified to become the YRF-84F parasite fighter in combination with GRB-36F.It is on display at the USAF Museum, Wright Patterson AFB, Ohio.

Great Planes Accupoint Laser Incidence Meter - And Thrust Angle Gauge, GPMR4020

Metal and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

No a model kit but a very accurate wing angle of incidence gauge. Attaches to any airfoil from a helicopter blade to a giant scale model or 'Extra.' The laser is mounted in a dual ball bearing-supported yoke to eliminate binding. The laser pointer is easy to 'zero' with a simple thumbwheel that can be used on any flat surface or even on the model. The scale is easy to read from any angle and measures incidence down to 1/4 of 1 degree. Comes with a special attachment on the scale that allows for easy checking of the engine thrust angle. Never used and factory new inside. Complete with all parts and instructions.

Guillows Rumpler C5 - 24 inch Wingspan R/C / Gas Free Flight / Rubber Powered Flying Aeroplane - (CV), 206

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$79   

Large-scale, well detailed kit and one of the harder Guillow's kits to find. Can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using modern small, light servos and receivers. Well detailed with scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform nose/cowl and engine, full color decals, colored tissue, die cut balsa parts, rubber motor, plywood firewall & struts and excellent full size plans. 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.
