Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Monogram US Air Force Refueling Group B-47 And KC-135, 1/240, P409-49

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Very rare. When Monogram invested in the tooling for the 18 aircraft "Air Power" kit, the sales did not meet expectations. In order to increase revenue from the molds, Monogram issued the "Refueling Group," "Bomber Group" and "Fighter Group" in the "Forty Niner" series with the Tu-16 Badger, F-101 and P-40. These kits used airplanes from the set with new blue-molded special stands and unique decal and instructions sets. All aircraft are well molded with recessed panel line detail. Decals and instructions are both in 'excellent++' condition although the box has wear as shown. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present.

Revell Aero Spacelines 201 Super Guppy - Airbus Industries, 1/144, 4743

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

Sold   

Still factory sealed. 1985 issue. Possibly from Otaki molds. Very nice quality kit with all recessed panel lines. Includes colorful Airbus lettering and full color stripes as shown on the box photo. The Guppy is basically a powered aluminum balloon. It has tremendous capacity and loads through the swing-away nose. The first Guppy was built to haul Saturn V parts from California to Florida in order to avoid shipping delays via ships going through the Panama Canal. All Guppy aircraft are built from retired Boeing Stratocruisers. The pistons were replaced with more powerful turbo-props, and the Super Guppy is only 52 mph slower than the Stratocruiser.

Original issue hardbox kit from 1966. Classic box art shows the ship anchored off Tahiti. One of Lindberg's finest mold cuts for a sailing ship.

Features separately molded cannon, full deck fittings, separately molded masts and yards, excellent pre-formed rat lines from flexible plastic, vacuformed sails, standing and running rigging guides, flag sheet and display stand. Molded in dark wood brown, light wood brown and black. The kit has never been started. NOTE: missing small lifeboat. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts including flags and instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

Dated 1991 and from the original 1960s molds. Nicely detailed for that time with 102 pieces. Features moving rudder, elevator and ailerons, cockpit detail and torpedo loadout. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: although all parts are present, one machine gun has a barrel broke off. Easily replaced with stock plastic or pulled sprue. The SM-79 was considered an excellent aircraft and one of the best land based torpedo bombers of the war. Designed and serving as an airliner from 1934 onward, 100 were supplied to the Nationalist Air Force for the Spanish Civil War where they served as day and night bombers. The aircraft performed well in the Med and against Malta, sinking many allied ships.

Aurora CVN-65 USS Enterprise Attack Carrier For Motorizing, 1/400, 720-995

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

First issue dated 1961 with John Steel box artwork. Aurora pulled out all the stops on this very large kit with a very large tooling cost to match. The result is a nicely detailed model that is well-designed for actual operation in water. As a bonus, the first issue only had the flight deck pre-painted with black background and white lines (as per the box art) and is in very good shape. The kit is over 33 inches long when assembled and is intended to be motorized. Very easy conversion to R/C (remote control). Aurora sold a separate motorizing kit that contained the electric motors and other needed parts. This kit features four (5 bladed) props, stuffing boxes, dual operational rudders, a very large sheet color decals for the ship and airwing, waterline striping tape, moving elevators, twin Sea Sparrow launchers, plated display stand, detailed island structure with clear windows, large airwing with 40 aircraft including F-4 Phantom, F-8 Crusader, A-4 Skyhawk and two Hup Helicopters and more. The kit has never been started. Many parts are still in the factory sealed internal bags. The ones that were no longer sealed have been inventoried and the actual ship is complete but NOTE: the display stand is missing one small round ball (an end cap on a rod) and the instructions look like photocopies; however, Aurora also issued them exactly like this when they ran out of originals (I have seen it often). Otherwise complete with all other parts. Aurora sold the motorizing parts separately and they are not included. In case you are curious, the 'sold separately' parts are two steel ballast weights, four brass battery clips and 4 battery contacts, wire, two electric motors and small nuts and bolts. All other hardware, gear boxes, motor mounts, worm gears, stuffing boxes, metal shafts and tubes, battery box etc are included with the standard kit.

Aurora Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina, 1/74, 374-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

Rare, first issue artwork from about 1956-57. This was a fine effort by Aurora for that time and an impressive model when assembled. Features retracting pontoons and rotating props. Includes correct early logo instructions which show the clear 'Triangle World' stand. That stand is correctly included. This must be one of the first instances of the 'Triangle' stand being used as it is normally associated with oval 'Famous Fighter' logo kits. Molded in gloss silver/gray and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: the back half of the pitot tube is broken off and is missing. Only the front part is present. It is interesting to note that the early Aurora PBY issue has at least three small variations to the box top. The very first issue says '1/4 SCALE MODEL' at the top right. Clearly, this kit is not 1/48 scale and someone at Aurora corrected it. Following that, there are two known corrections: early and late. On the early version, the '1/4' was blotted out with a dark blue oval or circle and '5/32' was added after the word 'SCALE.' It was now correct, but the appearance was not completely professional. This box is the later version - on the next box order, they kept the '1/4' blotted out but added a proper looking '5/32' in front of the blot.

Lindberg Grumman F6F-5 Hellcat - (F6F5) 'Large Box' Variant, 1/72, 593

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

1970s large one-piece box issue. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Lindberg is a company with a fascinating history The original 'Lindberg Line' stretches back to the 1930s when Paul Lindberg drew plans for famous modeling magazines and marketed his balsa wood 'stick and tissue' by urging dealers to carry the '...Complete Lindberg Line'. After the war, Lindberg and Olsen had a strong hand in early United States injection molded kit development. Please see the article located on this website about early USA plastic kit manufacturers.

Sterling Stearman PT-17 Kaydet Dusts Crops in Flight - 22 Inch Wingspan for R/C / Control Line / Free Flight, A2

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Very nicely produced stick-and-tissue model that actually releases 'crop dust' in flight. Can be flown with rubber, electric or gas control line or converted to RC with modern lightweight systems. Features high quality die-cut balsa sheet parts, stripwood and spars, fully formed wire landing gear struts, finished wheels, other wood and metal stock as required, light plastic engine, exhaust and pilot bust, clear dual die-cut windscreens, rubber motor, plastic prop, a big set of decals, covering tissue and excellent full size plans with detailed instructions. Never started. The kit has been inventoried complete with all parts, decals and plans. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they had the action features and included everything needed to complete the model.
