Lindberg Air Force Rescue Boat Motorized, 1/72, 706M-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$155   

Rare kit from the 1950s with classic Ray Gaedeke artwork. Motorized and designed for water operation; easily converted to R/C. this large-scale kit was very well detailed for that time, featuring clear hull and superstructure windows, all deck fittings down to ammo boxes and flag staffs, 6 piece 20mm anti-aircraft guns, full superstructure and bridge with horns, search lights, front and rear radar antennas and more, life boat, stretchers, opening rear rescue transom with boarding ladder, gun and bridge crew members, stanchions and railing rigging instructions, display stand and more. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including all parts, decals, flag sheet and instructions. Advertised by Lindberg as 1/72 but is actually closer to 1/88 scale. The Air Force Rescue Boats were the fastest among all Air Force craft. Built by Detroit Basin Inc, they were designed to reach a downed aircraft very quickly and rescue the crew in the least possible time. They were powered by three 1,500 horsepower Packard V-12 gasoline engines and fully crewed by 14 men and 2 officers. After reaching a downed aircraft, the pilots were brought aboard through a gate in the transom. In the event the flight crew was injured, the well in the stern leads directly into a sick bay with 12 litters. To ward off attackers, these vessels were equipped with two 20mm twin mount cannons and plenty of ammunition. They had radar and could operate in all weather conditions.

Air Lines Bristol Beaufort Mk.II / Mk.VIII Torpedo Bomber - (ex-Frog), 1/72, 7907

$18   

Sale Pending
Email for availability.

From about 1965. Features separately molded rudder, elevators and ailerons, rotating turret and crew. This kit has never been started. Complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Box art is by the famous Jo Kotula who did 1930s covers for the magazine 'Model Airplane News' and later the Aurora box art of the late 1950s. Air Lines kits are all Frog molds that the Lines Brothers imported to the USA between 1964-1966. The kits, decals and instructions were made in England, then imported to the USA where Testors created the boxes with the colorful trading cards on the back. There are two trading cards on each box which show the boxart but not the advertising/logo. Some kits contain a Testors color painting guide also, but it is not specific to any model.

Aurora Silver Knight of Augsburg 1560 Valiant Warriors - Crown Issue, 1/8, K1-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$165   

Very rare 2nd 'Crown' issue. This issue is dated 1956, but is from 1957 judging from the new 'Famous Fighters' oval logo and the fact that 'CROWN' is moved up to the top, just below Aurora. Inside, the kit is also correct for the second issue. The instructions still have the 1956 rectangular logo, but Aurora has removed copyright on them that said 'Crown Plastics, Inc Princeton, New Jersey'. Molded in a beautiful gloss silver and with a feather plume. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. In the mid 1950s, Crown Plastics advertised the release of a series of Knight models - some of the very first figure kits. However, before Crown entered production, Aurora marketed the line for Crown in 1956- the first issue of this kit (this is the second issue). The first issue had a copyright on the instructions as 'Crown Plastics, Inc Princeton, New Jersey'. These were the first Aurora Knights ever issued and Aurora gave them the kit numbers K1-98, K2-98 and K3-98. These were the very first Aurora figure kits. The knights sold well, and Aurora bought the three 'Knight' molds from Crown Plastics within the year. The first issue had the early Aurora 'Northern Lights' rectangular logo has the correct 'Crown Line' logo inside it.

ITC Mercer Raceabout Motorized Cam-a-Matic with Working Lights, 1/8, 36376-895

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair++

$185   

The largest injection molded kit ever made of this famous car. From the very early 1960s; features good detail for that time and operates realistically with Cam-a-Matic action. Car moves forward with real motor sound, then begins one of several pre-set steering patterns via one of four cams, stops at selected intervals, then flashes the headlights on then reverses at selected intervals! Measures about 17 inches long when built. Molded in red, black, clear and with plated plastic. The kit has never been started. The motor with metal parts and plated parts are still in their factory sealed bags, as are half of the red parts, the brass plated parts and the black wheels/tires. NOTE: one red parts bag is open; the kit appears (I say appears because one red bag is still sealed) to be missing the starting crank and short steering column sleeve; both are easily made. Also missing decals. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts and instructions present. The yellow interior display cardboard is present and in 'good' condition. The box top displays much better than the 'fair++' grade but is graded as such because one short side is torn but complete and taped from the inside. The lower box (tray) is complete but split on many corners and repaired with clear tape. There is a small, high quality repair to the underside of the chassis where there was a 1 inch closed split on a fender mount.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$26   

Still factory sealed. The Gamma was designed by John Northrop and was considered very advanced in 1933. The airplane was an instant success.

Dr. Lincoln Ellsworth used a Gamma in 1935 for a successful Trans-Antarctic Flight in the 'Polar Star'. This aircraft now rests in the Smithsonian. Gammas were also flown by Howard Hughes and Jacqueline Cochran. The model is very nicely molded and detailed and can build one of two versions of the Sky Chief (Phase I or III) or one of two versions of the Polar Star (Phase I or II)and includes all optional parts required to do so including two different engines, cowlings, nose sections, two and three blade propellers, canopies, one and two seat cockpits and tail wheels as required.
