Aurora Convair F-102 Dart - (YF-102 Delta Dagger), 1/121, 290-29

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$50   

1957 hardbox issue with the Parents' Magazine seal. Please note that this is an earlier issue with 'Famous Fighters' in the oval border of the Aurora logo and is has the '.29' cent price extension. This small scale kit has dramatic Jo Kotula box artwork and is nicely molded kit with clear canopy, full landing gear and display stand. This is a model of the very early YF-102 prototype with the straight (non-area rule) fuselage. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Around this time, Aurora issued a series of inexpensive (usually 29 cent) small scale kits that were designed to sell at almost any type of retail location. The line was successful and further expanded - when Aurora purchased the Comet molds, they fit in nicely with this established line.

Aurora Grumman S2F Hunter Killer, 1/54, 145-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$58   

1963 hardbox issue in 'excellent' condition. This big scale kit features fine recessed panel lines, clear cockpit windows and spotlight lens, retractable MAD boom and sonar dome, rotating propellers and under-wing rocket load-out. Molded in the correct dark Navy Blue and clear plastic. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. This is the larger of the two Comet molds for the S2F.

Aurora A-37 Strike Jet, 1/43, 147-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$40   

1968 hardbox issue. John Steel artwork was new that year and inside the kit features detailed cockpit, pilots, full landing gear and extensive under wing loadout. Never started. The weapons load is still in the factory sealed bag; all other parts were never factory sealed and are inventoried complete with decals and instructions. NOTE: one wing tip and one of the smaller main gear doors are a different color of plastic; they are from a later issue of the same kit.

Aurora MBT-70 Main Battle Tank - US or West German Markings, 1/48, 060

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$55   

Hard-to-find 1/48 scale armor kit in the block 'Aurora' log box from 1976. Features elevating gun, rotating turret, figures and operating treads and bogies. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora AT-6 Texan, 1/48, 70-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$44   

Hardbox release dated 1960. This is the harder-to-find issue because it has desirable 'Famous Fighters' in the logo border. The one without 'Famous Fighters' is much more common. This was a nice kit for the time featuring 'good' cockpit detail, pilot and student figures, rotating prop and USAF decals. Molded in silver and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please note that the box is only ranked 'good' because there is light brown age spotting on the box top; you can see it best against the yellow areas.

Aurora General Patton Tank - (M46), 1/48, 301-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$40   

This hard-to-find armor kit is dated 1963 and has John Steel hardbox artwork. Aurora made excellent armor kits for that time and this is no exception. In the early 1960s modeling reviewers declared them as the finest armor kits in any scale. Molded in gloss olive drab with flexible black treads. NOTE: this kit has been started and has 'professional' quality sub-assembly as noted here: partial scratch-built interior installed; turret halves built; side panels to lower hull. Lower turret plate trimmed to clear interior detail. There is no other assembly. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decal and instructions present.

Aurora Nieuport 11, 1/48, 101-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$42   

First issue from 1956 with the one-year-only 'Northern Lights' rectangular logo. The artwork is by Jim Cox. This is a very nice model for that time that includes a pilot, ground display with chocks and a ground crew member as well. Molded in the correct gloss olive drab and black plastic. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. 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. 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.

Pyro Natchez Mississippi River Packet, 1/160, B238-800

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair++

$145   

Rare hardbox issue from the mid 1960s. Very large and highly detailed model measures over 21 inches long when assembled. The Natchez was the famous rival of the Robert E Lee. The race between the two is considered a classic tale of The River. Although the Lee won, the circumstances were suspect and many people still considered the Natchez the fastest paddle-wheel packet ever. (For example, the Lee carried no payload and the Natchez was carrying passengers and a normal payload.) Molded in high-gloss tan, burgundy, green and gray plastic. All details of the real ship, including the wooden railings and carvings are duplicated. Includes full rigging instructions and thread. Never started. All the parts that were originally factory sealed are still in the factory sealed bags; the few parts that Pyro did not seal (paddles, hull and large deck parts) have been inventoried complete. With instructions, decals and flag sheet. Please note that while the box has heavy moisture/water damage, the decals, flag sheet and instructions (as well as all plastic parts) escaped damage and are 'excellent.'

Pyro Santa Maria Columbus' Flag Ship, C314-60

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$26   

Early hardbox issue with fantastic box artwork. Small scale ship kit about 5.5 inches long when assembled. Nicely molded. Includes full hull, molded wood plank and wood grain detail, many separately molded deck details including cannon, masts, billow sails and display stand. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions.

Pyro IJN Musashi Battleship - Table Top Navy, 1/1200, C392-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$20   

Small scale ship kit from the Table Top Navy series. Very nicely done kits for their time. Can be built full hull or waterline. Features propeller and shaft detail, separately molded turrets, stacks, many superstructure parts and more. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and instructions. Many of the Pyro kits came from Eagle (then Eaglewall) molds in England. Eaglewall went out of business around 1962 and Pyro acquired at least some of the molds. Pyro reissued some of these kits in the mid 1960s with AJ Rudisill artwork. Evidently the line was successful, as Pyro then cut some of their own molds and expanded the series significantly. The earlier issues have the full color artwork and a three digit part number. Later issues have a 'B' or 'C' in front of the three digit kit number; some have simplified box art that is a modification of the original Rudisill paintings by painting out most of the background. Pyro issued these kits into the late 1960 when Life-Like took over the molds. Some were reissued by Life-Like.
