Monogram Boeing B-29 Superfortress with Diorama Sheet, 1/48, 5700

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$145   

First issue from 1977 which contains the desirable color Diorama Sheet depicting the Enola Gay's preflight before the Hiroshima strike. The box is in 'excellent' condition, which is rare. Highly detailed model features markings for Bockscar, Enola Gay and Thumper, excellent cockpit, extensive interior, detailed bomb bay, optional position bomb bay doors, rotating turrets and elevating guns, crew members, optional optional parts for the proper turrets for Thumper or the special turret delete for the atomic bombers and two nuclear bombs, 'Little Boy' and 'Fat Man'. These are not included in some later issues. Never started. Inventoried with all parts, decals and instructions present. Decals and instructions are both in 'excellent+' condition. Please NOTE that the box displays much better than the 'good+' ranking; it is graded like this because there is a strip of masking tape along the bottom of all four side panels and the box tray.

Airmodel C-124 Globemaster, 1/72, 211

Special skills and scratch building experience are required. If you are curious, I highly recommend that you read the article 'How To Build Vacuform Model Kits' which is located on this website. The photo is not a photo of the built kit, but a stock photo of the C-124.

Hobby-Time Bell XV-3 US Army Convertiplane, 1/43, 901-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$89   

SALE!! From the 1950s. One and only issue in investment grade 'Near Mint: condition. I personally removed these kits from the original Hobby-Time shipping box - it is the first time they have seen light since the factory. There is very, very little wear - only as much you would expect from the original packing and boxing operations. This is a very nice kit for that time with fine raised panel lines, interior detail and molded in gloss silver and clear. The kit has never been started. The original 'krinkle' bag is present but brittle and cracked. I inventoried the parts and they are 100% present. The decals and instructions are in 'mint' condition.

Aurora French Nieuport 11, 1/48, 101-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$64   

Very rare 2nd issue that turns up less than the first (1956) release. For a long time I did not know this issue even existed. Please note the '69' cent price extension, sunburst oval logo with 'Famous Fighters' in the border, the Parents' Magazine seal and even the 69 cent price circle at the upper right. Normally this issue is only seen with a 79 cent price extension. This would be the late 1957/early '58 issue. This kit is one of a very successful line of 1/48 WWI aircraft that Aurora launched in 1956. The line sold so well that new kits were added into the 1960s. Molded in the correct gloss olive drab green and black. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Even includes the original factory tissue packing paper. Thanks to Eugene DuBey, we know some history on the aircraft that Aurora modeled. The tail # on the kit rudder is 1354, the number of a Nie 16 that served with CAM de Dunquerke / St Pol sur Mer", 1916-17.

Aurora Albatross D-3 - (Albatros D-III), 1/48, 104-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

$65   

Rare kit in amazing, investment-grade 'Near Mint+' condition inside and out. Most likely the third issue of this kit and much harder to find than the first issue. Box is dated 1956 but this is from 1958 due to the sunburst oval 'Famous Fighters' logo, the silver factory-stamped out '69' price replaced with 79 and the Parents' Magazine seal at the lower left. Molded in gloss green and black. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Even includes the original factory packing tissue.

Monogram AH-1G Huey Cobra Team - Blue Box Issue, 1/72, PA191-150

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$59   

Dated 1968. Includes two nicely molded Cobra kits and a special in-flight display stand for them. There is no assembly and no painting but NOTE: one part (interior bulkhead) has some glue on the back, but it was never assembled. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: there are complete decals for both helicopters but they are on three partial sheets. When you combine the three sheets there are complete decals for both helicopters.

The Ship Model Shop USS Arleigh Burke DDG51 Guided Missile Destroyer - 22 Inches Long, 1/250

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$275   

Very rare, highly detailed and prefabricated model from Allen Baker's legendary Ship Model Shop. This was the last kit he issued, and there are two personally signed letters from Mr. Baker included with the kit. Very high quality kit features 90% factory finished hardwood hull, perfectly cut and crisp wood superstructure parts, a vast number of cast metal fittings, a large sheet of photoetched brass details, wood, plastic and metal stock as required, a beautiful set dry transfers designed by Mr. Baker and custom made by Chartpak. Paperwork includes instructions, plans, sales material, color photos and various photocopies of plans. Carefully inventoried against the included parts list and NOTE: missing (2) of (16) small bitts and the (4) flat Aegis Antenna Enclosures; very easily made by cutting them from sheet styrene. All original paperwork is included but please NOTE: Mr. Baker had difficulty in releasing this final kit. So the instructions are generic (from the FFG7 kits) and a set of assembled plans. He apologizes in the letter for the standard of documentation. I only recommend this model if you are comfortable building a ship from plans.
