Air Lines DH-88 Comet Racer - (ex Frog), 1/72, 4901

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$29   

From about 1965 and finely molded for that time in silver and clear plastic. Features separately molded ailerons, elevators and rudder, two pilots and two standing figures. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, 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 one or 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.

Sankyo Sankyo SR Single Servo 'Carry' / OS Minitron Escapement / Receiver / Perfect Gas Tank / Kato Model Aircraft 110 CC Clunk Tank (TWO) and Kato 240 CC Clunk Tank Antique R/C Parts - All NOS

Other Materials,   Box Condition: VG+

$65   

Most likely from the late 1950s or very early 1960s. Includes all seven item in mint, NOS condition. Never used. The SR 'Singl Servo Carry' is still in the original factory clear bag and packing material. The OS Escapement is still in the factory clear bag and packing material. The other escapement box appears to contain an NOS receiver - that is my guess since it has a significant antenna. The Perfect gas tank is the #23 Long Senior Wedgetank with a 2 oz capacity; this is a soldered metal tank. The three 'Clunk Tanks' are all new in the box. I believe they are fuel bottles.

Comet Boeing B-47 Stratojet, 1/205, PL-22

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$89   

Rare kit from the 1950s. One-piece flip top box with early 39 cent price extension. Nicely molded in glossy silver and clear plastic with all recessed panel lines. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. It even includes the famous Comet catalog mail order envelope. 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.

Aurora Sopwith Camel, 1/48, 102-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$39   

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.

Premiere BAe Hawk T.Mk 1A Red Arrows, 1/48, P3102

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Aurora Convair F-102 Dart - (YF-102 Delta Dagger), 1/121, 290-39

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$52   

Hardbox issue dated 1957, but from the mid 1960s due to the oval logo with the blue outline. Small scale kit with dramatic Jo Kotula box artwork is nicely molded with clear canopy, full landing gear and display stand. This is a model of the very early YF-102 prototype with the straight (non-area rule) fuselage. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Around this time, Aurora issued a series of inexpensive (usually 29 cent) small scale kits that were designed to sell at almost any type of retail location. The line was successful and further expanded - when Aurora purchased the Comet molds, they fit in nicely with this established line.

Airfix The Great Western Ocean Liner Bagged - Type One Logo, 1397

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG+

$79   

Still factory sealed. This is the very rare 1950s first issue with the original Airfix logo. The factory header is in 'very good' condition and is still factory stapled shut to the original plastic parts bag. Like most small scale Airfix ships, this one is very nicely molded and features a full hull, display stand, ratlines and more. Measures just over 6 inches in length when built. The Great Western was the first ship specifically built for the Atlantic Ferry Service and was designed by I.K. Brunel (who designed the Great Eastern). When launched in 1837, she carried 120 first class, 20 second class, and beds could be set up for an additional 100 if needed. The crew was 60 men. The first crossing of the Atlantic Ocean was in April of 1838 and took just over 15 days. After crossing the Atlantic 64 times, she ran for 10 years between Southampton and the West Indies before being broken up in 1857.

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

I have built these models and they look identical to the real prototypes. The kit has not been started and is complete with all parts, sealed smaller details and plans + instructions. Please read the article on this website about older HO train kits and the modeling revolution they caused in the late 1930s/1940s.

The scale is not listed, but the built model is about 12 inches long. NOTE: the main turrets have been snapped (not glued) in to the deck. There is no other assembly. NOTE: missing display stand.

Marusan Nautilus SSN571 Nuclear Submarine Commemorative Issue - (ex-Revell), 1/305

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$69   

Very rare. This is a special issue by Marusan commemorating their very first kit - the Revell Nautilus. The contents are worthy of some detail. First, there is a 'Commemorative Booklet' which tells a fairly long story across many pages (in Japanese). The final page shows illustrations of the first Marusan print advertisements to promote the Nautilus, as well as a Marusan catalog page and a Revell/Marusan catalog page. The actual kit contains a copy of the original instruction sheet with "Marusan Plastic Model Kit" inside the Revell logo design, the older "SAN" logo and the special stand. The model parts are beautifully presented against white cardboard and factory sealed in clear bags. The special stand is included as well as the gold and black stand sticker. Complete and never started, with all paperwork and parts bags in mint condition.
