Topping Grumman F9F-8 Cougar - Factory Desktop Model In The Original Topping Box

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$325   

Incredibly rare, 1950s NOS Topping F9F-8 model untouched in the original factory box. Inside, all of the factory cardboard and tissue are still intact. The stand and aircraft were never displayed or used. The gloss and shine on both are fantastic. There are no cracks, no breaks and no repairs. Decals and factory paint are 'excellent++' to 'near mint.' While never used, please note that these models never left the factory in 'flawless' condition. There were always minor paint flaws and minor molding flaws as they were mass-produced. Furthermore, the canopies and decals inevitably have some yellowing, although this example is minimal. Because the original Topping box adds significantly to the value, it will be carefully packed into another box for shipping. Shipping insurance is required.

Monogram Phantom Mustang F-51D - See-Thru Working Model - (P-51), 1/32, PA67-700

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$275   

Rare first issue of this all-time classic and in good condition outside and dead mint condition inside. Hardbox is dated 1961. Although not perfect, this box is in well above-average 'good++' condition with great color and gloss, four solid corners, no stains, zero fading and no stains. There is no tape other than the factory sealing tape. The original price tag is still on the right short side panel. Flaws include edge and corner wear and scrapes at the upper right as shown. If you know these kits, you know they are usually in much worse condition. This model is still widely considered to be the best visible airplane action kits ever made. Features a full cut away model with interior detail. Buttons on the base activate two motors that make the prop spin, and the main gear and tail wheel retract and extend; two other levers on the base drop the wing bombs. Molded in the correct first edition shades of clear, red, black, silver and zinc chromate green. Inside, this kit is as it left the factory. All of the special presentation cardboard is in 'mint' condition and the two motors are still sealed. The parts were still wrapped in the original factory tissue and never even viewed until I did the inventory; I have carefully returned everything to the exact same position as it came int. It has never been started and is inventoried complete with all parts present. Instructions and decals are correct for the first issue and feature the 'Horse' stand decal. The decals are in amazing 'near mint' condition with only the smallest amount of yellowing as the only flaw. The instructions are in 'near mint++' condition, again with very slight yellowing as the only flaw.

Aurora Grumman S2F Hunter Killer Tracker, 1/54, 145-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

$89   

1963 issue in investment-grade 'Near Mint+' condition. The box has only the lightest wear. This kit is from the larger of the two ex-Comet S2F molds and features retractable sonar dome and MAD boom, rotating propellers, clear search light and wing tip lights, underwing rocket load out and more. Molded in dark blue and clear. This kit has never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instruction sheet present.

Aurora North American F-100 Super Sabre, 1/103, 490-70

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$48   

Dated 1961 with the great Jim Cox artwork that makes early Aurora kits so collectible. This issue has a slightly larger box than earlier ones. It is a nicely done kit for that time, molded in silver and clear with full landing gear and clear 'Triangle World Map' stand. Never started. Inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. Please note, this is not a reissue of the Comet model. Aurora cut these molds years before acquiring Comet's F-100. Since this kit does not have 'Famous Fighters' in the oval logo border and has a 70 cent price extension, it is most likely from the late 1960s and not the artwork copyright date of 1961.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$48

Aurora Lockheed F-104 Starfighter - (ex Comet), 1/110, 291-60

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$79   

Very rare 1964 Aurora of Canada hardbox issue of the ex-Comet kit. Several small-scale Comet molds (including the F-104, B-47 and B-52) were never reissued for the USA market and for decades I have wondered what happened to them. Aurora had no need for them, as they had already cut their own (superior) small-scale molds for those subjects. Well, the ex-Comet molds went to Aurora of Canada! The slightly less detailed Comet kits were issued there using the same box art as their slightly more detailed Aurora USA counterparts. Simply looking at the box top, you could not tell the difference. However, the contents and instructions gives the secret away. Molded in silver and clear and still retains the original Comet 'teardrop' shaped two-piece stand. Naturally the instructions are completely unique since this is a completely different kit from the Aurora USA Starfighter. This model is 100% correct and has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora Boeing B-52 Stratofortress - (ex Comet), 1/317, 2494-60

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$129   

Very rare issue dated 1964. This is the seldom seen Aurora reissue of the Comet kit for the Canadian market only. Several small-scale Comet molds were never reissued for the USA market and for decades I have wondered what happened to them. Aurora had no need for them, as they had already cut their own (superior) small-scale molds for most of those subjects, including the B-52 and B-47. Well, the ex-Comet molds went to Aurora Canada! The small, less detailed Comet kits were issued there using the same box art as their slightly larger and more detailed Aurora counterparts in the USA. Simply looking at the box top, you could not tell the difference. However, the four digit part number gives it away as do the contents. Molded in silver and clear and still retains the original Comet 'teardrop' shaped two-piece stand. Naturally the instructions are completely unique since this is a different kit from the Aurora USA B-52. This kit is 100% correct and has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Veeday Yakovlev Yak-15 - Sample Release, 1/72, 002

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$22   

Rare injection molded, limited run model. Veeday was a British company that produced some of the earliest 'short run' injection molded kits. Production lasted from 1978 to 1982. In all, 16 kits were issued if you count the Cierva C30 RAF and the C30 civil issue as two kits. Less than 1000 of each kit was produced and all kits were boxed. Two bagged kits (Pfalz D.XII and Spitfire 24) were issued after Veeday ceased production by someone who purchased the left-over stock. This kit has never been started - all parts and decals are present. However, NOTE: the instructions are missing. That is probably why it is labeled a "Sample Only."
