  Plastic Model Kits

Aurora Sopwith Camel, 1/48, 102-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$46   

Still factory sealed. This is the 4th known issue of this classic kit, and the second one to share the 102-100 kit number. The blue oval logo dates from the early 1960s. This is only the second box artwork used for this kit, and John Steel replaced Cox for the 'new look' from Aurora. 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.

Aurora Spad XIII, 1/48, 107-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

$95   

Still factory sealed and the seal is intact. Hardbox is dated 1957 and has dramatic Jo Kotula artwork and the oval 'Famous Fighters' logo with the sunburst. This is the second issue as it has the 79 cent price extension on the part number.

Aurora Albatross D-3 - (Albatros DIII), 1/48, 104-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$59   

Rare. Please note, this is a 'Famous Fighters' logo, first box art issue kit WITHOUT the Parents' Magazine Logo and a 69 cent price extension. This is the first time I have seen a FF original art version with no PM logo with a 69 cent price extension. Just when you think you have Aurora figured out, another variation comes along! That would make this the true third issue of this kit - only three issues have the 69 cent extension and are from 1956 and 1957. This kit has not been factory overstamped to 79 and still shows 69 on both sides The kit is molded in gloss dark green and black. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The decals are 'excellent' and the instructions are near mint. Please NOTE that the box only grades 'good.' The box has good color, is very solid (including all four corners) and has no fading but there is the obvious short litho tear under the logo on the box top. Additionally, there is general wear as shown and a short piece of masking tape on each of the two long sides.

Aurora SE-5 Scout - World War I British Fighter, 1/48, 103-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$65   

First issue from 1956 with Northern Lights logo. This logo only appeared for one year. In 1957 it was replaced with the famous oval 'Famous Fighters' Sunburst logo. The artwork is by Jim Cox. This kit was one of a very famous line of 1/48 scale WWI aircraft kits introduced by Aurora at this time. Due to the popularity, subjects were still being released into the 1960s. Molded in glossy olive green and black. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Aurora Sopwith Triplane Black Maria, 1/48, 100-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$59   

True first issue dated 1963 and with a 79 cent price extension to the kit number. Jo Kotula did the amazing artwork. This early issue has 'Famous Fighters' in the four logos on the box sides. Nicely done kit for that time with fair cockpit and engine detail, ground base, pilot figure and mechanic. Molded in gloss black. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please note, the box has wear as shown and is graded only 'good.'

Air Lines Airspeed Oxford Trainer - (ex-Frog), 1/72, 7906

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$28   

Well molded kit features separate ailerons, rudder and elevators. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Box art is by the famous Jo Kotula who did 1930s covers for the magazine 'Model Airplane News' and later the Aurora box art of the late 1950s. Air Lines kits are all Frog molds that the Lines Brothers imported to the USA between 1964-1966. The kits, decals and instructions were made in England, then imported to the USA where Testors created the boxes with the colorful trading cards on the back. There are two trading cards on each box which show the boxart but not the advertising/logo. Some kits contain a Testors color painting guide also, but it is not specific to any model.

Hawk Curtiss Racer R3C-1 - One Piece Box Issue 1949 - (R3C1), 1/48, 600

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$125   

For the advanced collector. This is a model kit with a fascinating history as it may be among the very first injection molded kits produced in the United States (please see the article about early USA kit production on this website). The Hawk model company was the most innovative in America and had been making constant 1/48 scale models in wood and metal since the late 1920s. During the re-run of the World's Fair in 1933, Hawk may have made the world's first injection molded airplanes models - but they were not kits. The models were completely finished and were on display for the princely sum of $25 each. The Mates brothers, who founded and ran Hawk, were quick to incorporate this new technology by adding injection molded details to the wooden kits in the late 1930s. During the war, Hawk put it's injection molding knowledge to work making ID models for the US Armed Forces. Originally there was a nation-wide program to have children and adults make these from wood, but consistency was an issue - injection molded solved this problem. Immediately after WWII in 1946, Hawk made the Curtiss Racer model injection molded in black tenite. The box was a simple one-color affair. This kit, like Varney's PT-17, met a very cool reception at hobby shops. Hawk quickly changed the box to two colors, added box artwork and molded the kit in bright yellow acetate. That was the second issue, still from 1946. By 1948/49 Hawk was using injection molded styrene plastic and still molding it in high-gloss yellow - that is this kit, the third issue. Other than the material, there are subtle changes to the box. It is still one piece but much larger, has much simpler (and larger) text on the end flaps and the box top says "All Plastic Airplane Assembly Kit" (instead of "...Construction Kit"). The box is in remarkable 'excellent++' condition with great colors, no creases, rips or tears, no splits and all 6 flaps present and 100% attached. The box has not been crushed or flattened, which is unusual as it was not very strong. Inside, the kit has never been started and has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. The instructions are in excellent condition. Please note that Hawk did not issue decals with this issue of this kit.

Aurora AT-6 Texan, 1/48, 70-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$69   

Still in the factory seal. Dated 1960 but the kit is later (mid 1960s) due to the '100' price extension and oval sunburst logo with no 'Famous Fighters' in the border. Please note the 100 price extension on the part number - this is a factory-applied round '100' sticker over the old printed price extension.

Like most Frog kits, this model has very fine panel lines only, which builds up to a realistic model.

Please NOTE also that the box displays much better than the 'very good' grade but it is rated as such because there is a closed split seam 2" long on the lower right.
