Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Very rare model from F&B Model Aircraft. In about 1953, F&B decided to branch out and produced at least three car kits - this '53 Imperial, a Jaguar XK120 and a Nash Rambler Convertible. The Imperial model measured out fairly close to 1/25 or 1/24 scale and features die cut balsa wood, pre-cut balsa blocks, wood stock as required, stamped aluminum bumpers, grill, bumper guards, emblems, tail lights, head lights, hubcaps and door handles, plastic steering wheel, completely finished rubber wheels, die-cut clear windows and light lenses and a large fold-out, highly illustrated step-by-step instruction sheet. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes all paperwork. This kit is for modelers experienced in building all-wood kits from the 1940s and 1950s. It is not for beginners and scratch building skills are a must. F&B was located in Denver, Colorado.

Hudson Miniatures 1906 Columbia Electric Old Timers, 1/16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Dated 1949 and very well detailed for that time. Big scale kit features numerous die-cut and machined-to-shape wooden parts, beautiful plastic wheels, leaf spring assemblies and lanterns and a number of metal parts, accessories and die-cut cardstock. The kit has never been started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed bag and all other parts have been inventoried present. Includes large, excellent, detailed plans with instructions. The Columbia Electric was manufactured by the Electric Vehicle Co. of Hartford, Conn. It had a 1.5 HP motor with chain drive and three speeds. It cost $1350 in 1906 and tipped the scales at 1660 pounds. We think of electric cars as 'new' today but they are anything but. There were many advantages (and manufacturers) of these cars. There were no fuel lines and radiators to freeze in the winter and no overheating in the summer. They used no smelly gasoline and produced no odor when operated. The complete lack of noise made them popular with the ladies and the range was between 40 and 50 miles on a charge - not bad at all considering you could not very far anyway (on regular business or errands) in 1906. Hudson Miniatures created a very popular line of automobile kits in a constant 1/16 scale shortly after WWII. The kits sold very well...so well that you could argue that Gowland & Gowland borrowed Hudson's subject matter for their ground-breaking 'Highway Pioneers.' The Hudson Miniatures 'Old Timers' even spawned a line of imitators, with Fador's 'Smallster' being one of the better in quality. Sales did drop on the appearance and popularity of the much smaller (and less accurate) Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' in 1951. When the all-injection molded Gowland kits proved not to be a passing fad, Hudson quickly planned and released his own all-plastic, small-scale competition called 'Lil' Old Timers Quickie Kits.' The kits were of excellent quality, but it was too little too late. Additionally, sales of the excellent wooden kits faltered further in the next few years with the introduction of accurate, 1/24 and 1/32 all-plastic cars in the mid 1950s. This forced Hudson to discontinue the wood kits and the plastic line was sold to Revell and subsequently re-released. Today, these excellent, big 1/16 kits are often the only model available of these early automobiles. In the mid 1960s Aurora thought so highly of Hudson Miniatures that they purchased the wood kit assets and released a very small number of these in all-plastic models.

They had full instrumentation, power operated flaps and brakes, a powered device for jettisoning the landing gear upon touchdown. The Horsa MkI carrier troops while the MkII carried vehicles which loaded through the swing nose and unloaded from an explosively-released rear fuselage after landing. Gliders carried in 20% of the reinforcements and supplies for D-Day, and most were Horsas. They also saw action against the German Heavy Water (Atomic Bomb) plants in Norway and targets in Sicily, Arnhem and the Rhine.

Lindberg PHOTO ONLY - SOLD, 1/64, 525-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair-

Sold   

Classic kit from the late 1950s with dramatic box art by Ray Gaedke. This was the first big-scale, high quality kit ever made of the B-17 and Lindberg could hardly keep the hobby shop shelves stocked. If you have built this model, you know that it is well molded, fits together easily and has excellent detail for that time. It features movable rudder, elevators & ailerons, rotating and elevating gun turrets, retractable main landing gear and tail gear, crew members, 'good' cockpit detail, rotating propellers & wheels and a large, clear adjustable display stand. Inside, the kit has never been started and is inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the box is only in 'fair-' condition and not collectible. It is very beat up and worn and just a notch above being 'Poor' condition.

Monogram Boeing 727 TWA - (ex Aurora), 1/96, 5414

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

Sold   

1978 issue after Monogram bought and modified the Aurora molds. Monogram only reissued the best and most commercially viable models. In this case, they saw the molds could be improved and did so. The result is a much better and accurate kit, the best 'short' body 727 available in near 1/100 scale. Monogram added a network of very fine raised panel lines to the fuselage (the original had no panel lines), filled the deep e-doors over the wings and made them fine raised also, added wing fences and fine raised panel lines to the wings, added flap hinges to the wing undersides and added fine raised panel lines to the horizontal stabilizers. Monogram was evidently proud of the improvement, and even shows them on the assembly drawings. With full landing gear. Includes TWA full stripes and window decals. This kit has not been started. Inventoried and NOTE: missing clear cockpit windows. Otherwise complete with all other parts. Includes decals and instructions. NOTE: decals are damaged. There is enough left that you could restore them using the procedure outlined in the two articles on this website about how to save old decals. If not, you will need to provide your own decals.

Comet Boeing 707 Stratotanker (367-80 - Dash 80) - BAGGED, 1/125, PL800-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box

Sold   

NOTE: Bagged kit - there is no box. The box is shown for reference only. Comet originally began model production in 1929 with a line of balsa flying models. In the mid-1950s Comet made a beautiful line of small and medium scale aircraft and missile models with colorful boxes. The early issues were in one-piece 'flip-top' boxes, and the later issues and releases were in standard two-piece 'hardboxes' with a lithograph slick glued to the top box. In 1963 Comet sold the plastic kit molds to Aurora, who reissued some but not all of the kits. There were two Boeing 707 models made. This is the two-piece box larger scale (1/125) 'Stratotanker' - not really a tanker model at all, but a nice kit of the famous Dash-80 Prototype Air Force Tanker/707, which lead to the world's first commercially-successful airliner and the legendary KC-135 air-to-air refueler. Well molded with fine recessed panel lines, full landing gear and prototype decals. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. NOTE: one lower wing is a gray color instead of silver. It is from another issue of this same kit.

Aurora Nieuport II, 1/48, 101-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Sold   

Factory sealed and in investment-grade 'Near Mint' condition. 1960s issue with fantastic John Steel artwork. This is part of the famous Aurora WWI series of 1/48 scale aircraft. The series began in 1956 and Aurora added new kits into the early 1960s. The line proved incredibly popular, so these kits were included in the 'mold upgrade' in the 1970s before Aurora went out of business.
