Aurora German Sea Raider Atlantis 'The Rattlesnake of the Ocean', 1/456, 710-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$765   

First issue. The hardbox is dated 1959 and has 'Famous Fighters' in the oval border of the logo, with 'Aurora' over the 'Northern Lights.' Dramatic Jo Kotula artwork. This is the only model ever made of the famous (or infamous) German WWII converted merchant raider which was the subject of several books and a major movie called 'Under Ten Flags'. The long WWII voyage was legendary, and the ship is well represented in this full hull model. Covers can be removed to reveal hidden guns, torpedo tubes and the Ar-196 float plane. The box has four solid corners, no repairs and 'very good' gloss and color - there is wear as shown, especially at the corners. The model has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Shipping insurance is required. From modeler Stephen Payne: Recommend that the builder or collector of this kit add the following books to their collection-The German Raider Atlantis by Captain Bernhard Rogge & Wolfgang Frank & Sea Raider Atlantis, Story of a German Surface Raider by Ulrich Mohr & A.V. Sellwood. The first book is by the ATLANTIS commander, Kapitan zur See Bernhard Rogge. He oversaw the transformation and outfitting in Bremen and captained the ship during her 602 day operational voyager which sank or captured 22 ships totaling 144,384 t (142,104 long tons). Rogge also was one of the few German officers of flag rank who was not arrested by the Allies after the war due to the way he had exercised his command of Atlantis. Captain J. Armstrong White, captain of the British CITY OF BAGHDAD, which Atlantis sank in July 1941, stated, "His treatment of prisoners left respect, instead of hatred."The second book is by the ATLANTIS First Officer, Ulrich Moher. Both books read much the same as the events related are the same, but it is interesting to see these events from the two perspectives. Captain White (see above) wrote the foreword to Atlantis, the Story of a German Surface Raider, written by U. Mohr & A. V. Sellwood.The German auxiliary cruiser Atlantis (HSK 2), known to the Kriegsmarine as Schiff 16 (SHIP 16) and to the Royal Navy as Raider-C, was a converted merchant vessel to German Hilfskreuzer (auxiliary cruiser) used for commerce raiding. Commerce raiders did not seek to engage warships, but rather attack enemy merchant shipping; the measures of success are tonnage destroyed (or captured) and time spent "at large" holding up enemy resources. Atlantis had the longest raiding career of any German commerce raider in either world war.

Pyro Chevrolet 1952 Fas-back (Fastback) Two Door Sedan, 1/32, C293-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$36   

Late 1960s Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of the kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. This model is nicely detailed and the box states that it can be converted to a 'road racing' or slot car. Features detailed molded chassis and separate front and rear suspension parts, full interior and molded in a beautiful gloss red and clear plastic. This kit has no assembly but NOTE: it has very neat and minor painting. The interior carpet is painted black (to 'professional' quality), the stainless trim on the body top and inner door panels is painted silver (to 'professional' quality) and painting began (but was not finished) on the tires and whitewalls to 'excellent' quality. There is no other painting and zero assembly. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

MPC 1970 Dodge Challenger Sub Lime Promo With Original Box and Decals, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$450   

Very, very rare promotional model, especially in this condition and with the original box and decals. The box is stamped "CHARGER SUB LIME." This model was obtained in 1972 in Lexington KY by a very discriminating adult collector. The model is in amazing condition. The paint has like-new color and gloss, the chrome is in factory-new condition and the model has never even been displayed outside the box. There is zero body warp and the clear is in 'near mint' condition. I would grade this one 9.5 out of 10 with 10 flawless. The deduction is for light box scratches on the roof. The decals are also very nice, with very light wear and a small amount of foxing being the only flaws. Even includes the original factory packing paper. The box is complete with all flaps and solid but has wear as shown and age foxing.

The exterior box is near mint with like new color and gloss and light wear as the only flaw. The back side is a large framable portrait of Douglas C-133. The kits have never been started.

Aurora Black Knight of Nurnberg 1580 - Crown Issue, 1/8, K3-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$175   

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 box side rectangular 'Northern Lights' Aurora logo has the 'Crown' logo incorporated into it, as does the logo on the instructions. The 'Crowns' were the first Aurora Knights ever issued, Aurora's very first figures kits, and Aurora gave them the kit numbers K1-98, K2-98 and K3-98. The knights sold well, and Aurora bought the three 'Knight' molds from Crown Plastics within the year. The kit is 100% correct down to the red and white plumes. Inside, the plastic parts are mint. The kit has never been started. The gloss black plastic parts are still sealed in the factory bag. The instructions are correct with the Crown logo in the Aurora logo. The two plumes are in very good condition, which is rare.
