Life-Like Roman Chariot - (ex- Miniature Masterpiece / Revell / Adams), 1/48, 09673

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$40   

Still factory sealed and from the original 1950s high-quality molds. This kit has an interesting history. 'Miniature Masterpieces' was formed through an alliance of Lew Glaser (Revell) and Steve Adams (Adams Action Models) in 1953. Although the molds were made at Adams and it had the appearance of an independent company, the firm was run by Revell down to the prototypes being made at the Revell plant. Originally there was no evidence of the parent company on the surface. The State Coach of England was the first kit, issued in 1953. More kits of excellent quality followed. Revell completely took over the line in 1954 and in that year and the next, kits were labeled 'Revell' with a 'Miniature Masterpiece' label on the box top also. However, Adams broke the relationship with Revell in the later 1950s and began making kits under the Adams name in 1958 with the original molds. When Adams decided to leave the plastic business, they sold the molds to the famous HO Craftsman Train manufacturer Athearn, who released the armor under the name 'SNAP.' UPC then reissued the Miniature Masterpiece kits, probably with an agreement with Athearn (because Athearn never reissued them). However, Life-Like acquired the ex-Adams molds from Athearn in the early to mid 1970s and did reissue most if not all of this line. This issue is from about 1976 and lists the former 'MM' kits Chuck Wagon, Western Figures, Wells Fargo Stage coach as well as numerous Pyro and Palmer kits as being currently available.

Pavla Arado Ar-231 V1 U-Boat Float Plane, 1/72, 72014

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$27   

Limited production kit. Contains photoetched details. The small Ar-231 was designed as a scout/recon aircraft to be carried on U-Boats in a water-tight hangar. Six prototypes were built and extensively tested. The aircraft proved to be a handful even in calm weather, and design restrictions made the Ar-231 small and underpowered. . Would look great with a modified Revell 1/72 U-Boat kit. Never started and the parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

It has been inventoried with all car parts 100% complete and photocopied instructions. NOTE: missing decals and the original instructions.

Aurora P-38 Lightning Brooklyn - Famous Fighters of All Nations, 1/48, 99-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$200   

Very rare first issue Brooklyn kit from the early 1950. Molded in the correct light blue with little surface detail and no mass balances, pitot tube or landing gear struts, wheels and doors. Includes the correct rectangular clear stand for this issue. Decals and instructions are in excellent condition. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The Aurora issues of the 1/48 scale P-38 are interesting to say the least. The first issue is the Brooklyn kit with the P-38/B-24 box artwork. Inside, the plastic is light blue with minimal surface detail and a clear canopy and rectangular stand that says 'Aurora Plastic Corp. Brooklyn, 4, N.Y.'. There are no landing gear, gear doors or mass balances. The second issue has identical box art, plastic color, decals and rectangular stand, but the box and instructions says 'West Hempstead' instead of Brooklyn. The clear stand mold has had 'Brooklyn' milled out, and there is no location on the stand. The third issue has the same artwork, but the full color 'Aurora Line' logo is used - but the big changes were on the inside. Aurora modified the molds, adding a pitot tube, elevator mass balances and landing gear struts, wheels and doors. The decals and stand remain the same, but the new instructions reflect the changes to the molds. This time the kit is molded in an attractive metallic blue. The fourth issue dropped the Jim Cox artwork in favor of a new P-38 flying from right to left across a threatening sky. The plastic still metallic light blue and the decals and stand remain unchanged. The new details were retained. The fifth issue was 1959. The oval 'Famous Fighters' logo was used with Jo Kotula artwork of two P-38s. The detail level of the kit remained the same, but it was molded in olive drab and clear. The newer 'Triangle' base was added at this time. Further issues kept this box artwork, but the oval logo changed as well as the price extensions.

Aurora Russian Nuclear Powered Bomber - (M-50/M-52 Bounder), 1/182, 128-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$179   

1959 one-and-only release with colorful Jo Kotula artwork. This kit bears much resemblance to the 'Bounder' bomber. In the late 1950s, a drawing of the Bounder appeared in a popular aviation magazine; it is widely assumed that Aurora made the kit from that drawing. Aurora's push to always be first with new subject matter resulted in some errors in judgment which resulted in some incredibly rare kits like this one. Molded in the correct gloss light gray & clear. Never started. Inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. The decals intact, fairly flat (with one corner starting to curl) and the normal yellowing. The instructions are in 'excellent++ condition with light yellowing as the only flaw. The box top is solid with great color and gloss, no repairs, no price tags or tape (or marks from either), no rips, tears or fading but it has edge wear and general wear as shown.
