Aurora Albatross CIII - (Albatros C.III / C-III), 1/48, 142-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM


Still factory sealed and in amazing investment-grade 'Near Mint' condition. Dated 1963 but is actually a mid 60s issue due to the lack of 'Famous Fighters' in the border of the box side logos. This is just one of the many incredibly successful 1/48 scale WWI aircraft kits from Aurora. A few years after settling into the new plant at West Hempstead, one of the the major projects was to launch this line in 1956. New subjects were added as late as the early 1960s. The line was so successful that many were selling right up until the end of Aurora in 1976.

Revell Sikorsky HH-3E Jolly Green Giant - Brazil Issue, 1/72, H144

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair-


1970s Kikoler Revell of Brazil issue features movable rotors, hinged cargo ramp, refueling probe and crew. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: the box looks slightly better than the 'fair minus' rating. However, it is rated that low because are multiple tears on the side panels and a 2x1 inch section of the upper long side panel is missing.

Marusan Aerial Missile Transporter - Marusan Issue - Cessna YH-41 With Hawk Missiles - (ex Adams), 1/40, 158-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


Very rare Marusan-SNAP issue that is most likely from the early 1960s. This was Cessna's only helicopter design and was once considered as a transport to quickly resupply remote Hawk SAM launchers. Very nicely detailed model features full cockpit and interior, pilot and co-pilot figures, opening cabin doors, missile loader figure and Hawk Missiles with cradles. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: left vertical fin is broken off of the left fuselage; it is present and fits back very neatly so it can be repaired. The rear rotor guard is broken in two but both halves are present and fit back together perfectly. This is the SNAP issue from the original Hawk molds. When Adams exited the model kit business, Athearn (of HO train fame) was actually the first to be interested in some of the molds. SNAP was the marketing arm of Athearn for these kits which also included Winnie the Whale and more.

Tamiya Kawanishi N1K2-J Shiden-Kai George Motorized, 1/50, 2

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+


Very early Tamiya model from 1963 with a high-gloss box top and very collectible artwork. This is a high quality kit for that time and features all very fine raised panel lines, working flaps, rudder and elevator and retractable landing gear. The kit is engineered to be motorized and includes all hardware to do so, but Tamiya did not include the motor with the model. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Orange Crush-Revell 1915 Ford Model T, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


Very rare kit with a fascinating history. Around 1958/59, Orange Crush of Mexico offered a promotion. They offered free, colorful, plastic model cars if you collected correctly-marked Orange Crush bottle caps. The models are 1/32 scale Revell Highway Pioneer series - although there is no mention of Revell or Lodela anywhere on the box. Orange Crush had the boxes and even the instructions specially made for them with no mention of a manufacturer. They were never given numbers. The boxes were very thin and fragile cardboard. This has contributed to wear and you must be very cautious with them. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bag and the instructions are sealed in the bag as well. You could redeem your caps two ways - at the Orange Crush truck and at a Modelandia Hobby House. The box sides show the 18 cars in the series. Orange Crush also released two full-color booklets and a complete paint set for the cars. A colorful cardboard box held 7 colors of paint in glass bottles, complete with 'Orange Crush' screw-on caps! The entire promotion was done in coordination with Modelandia Hobby House which had up to 19 stores. Modelandia's name appears on each of the boxes and the paint as well. Robina S.A. was the bottler or distributor of Orange Crush in Mexico at that time. The box side lists the other 18 kits with small color pictures of each and shows three sizes of OC - Family Size (Familiar), Grand (Grande) and Normal. You could also obtain models with Titan bottle caps. Titan was also bottled by Robina and came in large (Titan) and smaller (Titancito) sizes and apparently more than one flavor. We do not know how Orange Crush had access to the plastic kits or who sealed the internal bags with the Crush instructions inside them. We can assume that it may have been Lodela, since they would have had access to the Revell molds. It is not know for how long the promotion lasted, but Orange Crush was one of the most dominant soft drinks in Mexico at that time. Here is one clue: some boxes claim that Modelandia had 13 locations; other boxes, which obviously came later on, claim 19 locations. This may indicate that this promotion went on for a significant amount of time.

Paramount Boeing 727 -100 JAL 'Tone' Old Livery, 1/220, 6005-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Rare kit from Otaki molds. It represents an early 'short' 727 and features very fine raised detail, full landing gear, a display stand and stunning early JAL full color decals just like the box art aircraft. This was back when airlines would name aircraft, and this one is 'Tone,' which is a river in Japan. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. Paramount was based in Canada and sold kits from the mid 1960s to the early 1970s when they shut down. This exact kit lists Pawtucket, RI as the address with the contents made in Japan and the litho done in Canada. Most if not all of the kits were from older Otaki, Sanwa, Nichimo or Marusan molds although some remain unidentified.

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+


Rare model from the 1930s for the advanced collector. Note the low kit number (36) in this series. Hawk was one of the few manufacturers making wooden kits to a constant scale of 1/48.
