Huma Model Messerschmitt Me-309 V1/V2/V3 - Bagged, 1/72

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$28   

When the Me-209 was dismissed as the 109s successor, design work began on the 309. It was intended to be a high speed, long range heavy attack fighter with an ejection seat and pressurized cockpit.

Heller Boeing 707 - Air France ' Chateau de Versailles', 1/125, 700

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$125   

Very rare, from the early 1960s One of two box versions of this kit. Early Heller issue with fantastic artwork. Early Heller kits had some wonderful engineering (such as in the Etendard IV and DC-8) and this model is no exception. The model was designed to minimize painting and is molded in white, gray, clear and includes black rubber tires. The fuselage lower section is molded in gray along with the wings and engines, and the upper fuselage is in white. There is a sheet of colorful Air France decals in very good condition. The landing gear and gear doors can be positioned up or down. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. Even includes original glue capsule and instructions for the glue.

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$135   

Rare, first issue artwork from about 1955-56. 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 and the correct stand is 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 and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please note the 'good' grade due to small white paint spots at the right and a slight crunch at the upper right corner. 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 early, uncorrected version.
