Aurora Northorp N-156 Freedom Fighter - (F-5), 1/48, 140-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$125   

Still factory sealed and in investment-grade 'near mint' condition. The only flaw is a split seal on the right short side. 1962 issue with fantastic Jo Kotula box artwork. This kit is a very good representation of the rare 'Freedom Fighter' prototype N-156. It developed into the F-5, which was widely exported and saw service in over 30 countries. Only three of the N-156 prototypes were built. The design centered around two GE J85 turbojets which originally powered the ADM-20 Quail decoy carried by the B-52 fleet. Initially there seemed to be little demand until President Kennedy's Military Assistance Program required a low-cost fighter that could be provided to US Allies. The N-156 was easily the top choice. It was renamed the F-5 and the rest is history - it became one of the most widely used fighter/bombers in post-WWII history and is still in service in some air forces. Kit includes pilot, cockpit and instrument panel and three drop tanks and early AIM-9 Sidewinder Air-to-Air Missiles.

Lincoln Bristol Sycamore Helicopter, 1/64, 110

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good++

$52   

Still factory sealed but the seal has shrunk and exposed the box ends. Nicely molded, larger scale model from the late 1950s or early 1960s. Lincoln was based in Hong Kong. Plastic kits were not the primary business, but they established quite a line of them before discontinuing production in the late 1960s/early 1970s. Many molds moved to Kader, also in Hong Kong, who reissued the line. Many molds eventually found their way to the USA either through ATP (who purchased the excess kit stock when Kader sold out) or IM.

Rare, highly prefabricated model from 1955 and even rarer in never started & complete condition. Enterprise pulled out all the stops on this design to make it easy to build and to give a realistic appearance - so good that you can make a static model from it to be proud of.

The kit is almost completely sheeted - there are only two very short section of tissue paper needed.

Aurora Curtiss Hawk P-6E - Factory 'Thin Tape' Sealed, 1/43, 116-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$115   

Amazingly rare factory sealed first issue from the early 1950s. This is the first time I have seen this kit factory sealed. Box color and gloss are as new and the box grades a very strong 'Excellent+' overall. It displays as "Near Mint++" but I have graded it lower because there is a small (1/2" x 1/8") litho pull on the lower long side and some very light wear. The kit features movable ailerons, elevators and rudder, 'good' cockpit for that time, pilot figure and rotating wheels and propeller.

Maircraft Curtiss P-40 - Solid Wood Model Airplane, 1/48, S13

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$25   

Maircraft was originally founded in the early or mid 1930s by Gordon Christoph and went by the name Aircraft Model Company. The company produced a typical line of solid 'profile cut' kits that required the usual high talent levels for carving and finishing. A former Comet Model Airplane & Supply Co. salesman, Jack Mair, bought the company in the early 1940s and renamed it Maircraft. This company was one of the handful of solid kit producers who issued models in a consistent 1/48 scale during the 1930s and 1940s (others included Hawk and Dyna-Model). This lead to one of the most desirable and rare model kits ever produced in the USA - the wood/plastic 1/48 United DC-3 model issued immediately after World War 2. Other than the P-61 and a few other Maircraft offerings, most were simple kits that sold for the low price of about 35 cents and gave the owners many hours of pleasurable work. This kit features a full size plan with instructions steps, fuselage that is about 80% cut in the x,y and z axis, profile cut parts, printwood and a small bag of details. The model has not been started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed bag and the larger parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete with all paperwork. Please note, the insignia for this kit is Chinese markings only.
