Aurora Lockheed F-90 West Hempstead, 1/48, 33a-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

Fourth issue of the famous 1/48 F-90 Long Range Fighter. With the early and colorful 'Aurora Line' rectangular logo. Although not dated, the logo tells us this kit is from 1954/1955. Molded in gloss silver and clear, with landing gear and missiles and the modified rectangular 'Brooklyn' style two-piece stand. With the correct Tatem decals and instructions which are both in exceptional near mint condition. Even the original tissue paper is present. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. When Aurora issued it's first two plastic kits, they were copies of the Hawk Model Company's F9F and F-90 fighters. The first Aurora issue was in the rather plain and very rare flip-top one-piece box with the kit molded in gray with no landing gear and missiles from the Brooklyn factory. The second issue was also from Brooklyn and molded in gray with no landing gear or missiles but was in the new two-piece hardbox. The third official issue is the West Hempstead issue and is molded in silver with landing gear and missiles ('Brooklyn Gray' issues of this kit are confirmed to exist). This kit is the fourth issue.

Guano Aeroplane Ikarus IK-2, 1/72

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good

Sold   

Rare. The IK-2 is the father of the fantastic IK-3. Both are of Yugoslav design and manufacture. IK2 and 3 saw service in WWII; IK-2s attacked German columns and IK-3s defended Beograd from the air. IK-2 was a superior design in that day. In mock dogfights in 1936, it out performed the Hawker Fury in a respects. The aircraft was all metal and heavily armed with two 20 mm cannon and two 7.92 mm machine guns. The kit features main airframe parts cast in high-definition resin with very fine panel detail, resin horizontal stabilizers and radiator, injection molded wheels pants, wheel hubs, tires and prop, resin pilot bust, clear vac windshield and many pages of instructions and drawings.

From what I can tell, most if not all were marketed directly through him. This kit was sent directly from his home in a eraser box to the customer.
