Designed for simplicity, reliability and economy, the Sedan did all three very well. Crusing speed was 130 mph at 1850 RPM with a top speed of 150 mph. She landed at 60 mph and weighed 2,280 lbs. Range with a pilot, 600 pounds of people or cargo was over 500 miles.

Aurora Cessna 310, 1/62, 283-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$175   

Rare issue dated 1963 and from ex-Comet molds. Neatly molded with all recessed panel lines, clear side and front windows, tip tanks, rotating propellers, display stand and full pinstripe decals. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Aurora had started a line of inexpensive 29 cent kits in about 1957. The line was a success, and it was expanded. The line grew again when Aurora purchased the Comet molds, as most of Comet's line was very small scale kits, many of them civil aircraft like this one. It appears that Aurora was encouraged by the sale of the ex-Comet civil aircraft, as it expanded the line with it's own molds in the early 1960s.

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$18   

NOTE: builder kits only, please read carefully. Includes the important parts from both kits. Probably from the 1940s. Includes full size plans/instructions and all required printwood. They have never been started but include no parts other than stripwood and plans. From Bill Baker Jr - "California Model Company originated in Long Beach, Calif in the late 1940's or early 1950's. My grandparents, William (Bill) Loyal Baker and his wife, Ruth (Tripp) Baker were the founders. The company started out as primarily balsa based model aircraft but later, in the late 50's or early 60's, branched into the model RR craft kits and Cub Scout craft kits. They even had a balsa speed boat kit powered by a model airplane gas engine adapted to fit. When they retired, around 1968 or 1969, they sold the business and the "shop" in North Long Beach they built to house their business. I have many fond memories as a young child "working" with them in the shop, assembling kits. I have a few unbuilt kits today!"

Aurora Northrop P-61 Black Widow, 1/48, 392-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$179   

Still in the factory seal and in 'Excellent+' condition. The only flaws are corner creases at the left side as shown. Hardbox issue is dated 1960 - however, this issue lacks the 'Famous Fighters' in the oval logo boarder and has a 198 price extension, so it likely from about 1963/64.

Aurora P-51 Mustang Screwdriver Issue, 1/27, 377-350

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM++

$245   

Original issue dated 1969 and in remarkable, investment-grade 'Near Mint++' condition. The box has only a tiny bit more wear than when it came off the assembly line. This kit was originally designed as a gas powered flying model. However, Aurora discontinued the gas powered line very shortly after introduction due to returns and liability issues. Since the mold investment was already made, Aurora marketed these kits as large scale static models and they became know as "Screwdriver Kits" to collectors. For example, the 1/32 scale B-25 was issued in Gas U-Control and then static - but the P-51 may have only been issued in static. Molded in dark blue, light blue and clear & with many metal parts. Never started. The metal parts are still factory sealed in the original 'krinkle' bag. All other parts have been inventoried 100% complete. Includes decals in amazing, perfect 'Mint' condition and instructions in 'excellent' condition with yellowing as the only significant flaw. Even includes the original factory screwdriver with the clear yellow handle.
