Still factory sealed. 1979 issue "White Box" issue that is a high quality kit featuring full cockpit, wheel well detail, optional position canopy and a large load of external stores with drop tanks, AIM-9 Sidewinders and iron bombs. Decals for VA-72 USS John F Kennedy. This kit has a very interesting history. Aurora originally cut the molds just a few years before they shut down. The A-7 was an excellent kit for that time as Aurora did everything they could to make it so. It features all recessed panel lines, realistic retractable landing gear with opening and closing doors, rotating wheels, good cockpit and a huge loadout of iron bombs, Sidewinder missiles and drop tanks. The molds were sold in 1977 to Monogram, and the A-7 molds survived the train accident on the way to Chicago. Monogram only reissued the finest Aurora kits; however, to meet Monogram standards, they often received significant upgrades, like the 737, DC-10 and 747 did. However, the A-7 upgrade was so extensive that it is a challenge to tell if it came from Aurora or not. For years I read that it did, but the differences are so significant that I wanted to compare them side-by-side. I finally got that chance. My conclusion is that this certainly is the old Aurora kit, but it has been modified so extensively that it may be the largest, most comprehensive mold rework ever done in the history of plastic modeling. First, it is from the Aurora molds because of the identical parts tree layout for the trees and parts that Monogram did keep - down to the millimeter, right down to the part number tabs. Also, the dimensions of the wings, horizontal stabs and most other major parts are identical along with many other smaller clues. But the amazing things are the changes. This is not a complete list, but Monogram did the following- on the fuselage halves they made the nose slightly longer (2MM) and wider; added the cockpit cowl, moved the front landing gear bay forward by 5mm, added the main wheel bays to the fuselage parts and removed all surface detail, replacing it with fine raised details. Antennas and lights were modified or added, as well as refueling probe storage. The wings were lengthened by 2mm each; while the recessed lower control surface lines were replace, the rest of the surface detail was redone complete. The horizontal stabilizers were reworked for surface detail and in doing so, they removed the reinforcement plates at the hinges; you can still see the tooling marks from this removal. The retractable landing gear was eliminated. The main gear struts were simply given strut detail, while the nose strut is almost completely new. The landing gear doors were almost left intact, but the tabs (for retraction) were removed and interior detail was added. The cockpit is completely new. The bomb loadout and ejector racks are almost the same, but the racks received new surface detail. The AIM-9s are almost completely Aurora - all Monogram did was remove the mounting tab. You can still see the original ejector pin marks, tree layout and even the same part number tab. There are many more changes, but this gives you a good idea of the trouble that Monogram went to in making accurate models.

Monogram Boeing 727 TWA - (ex Aurora), 1/96, 5414

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$28   

1978 issue after Monogram bought and modified the Aurora molds. Monogram only reissued the best and most commercially viable models. In this case, they saw the molds could be improved and did so. The result is a much better and accurate kit, the best 'short' body 727 available in near 1/100 scale. Monogram added a network of very fine raised panel lines to the fuselage (the original had no panel lines), filled the deep e-doors over the wings and made them fine raised also, added wing fences and fine raised panel lines to the wings, added flap hinges to the wing undersides and added fine raised panel lines to the horizontal stabilizers. Monogram was evidently proud of the improvement, and even shows them on the assembly drawings. With full landing gear. Includes TWA full stripes and window decals. This kit has not been started. Inventoried and NOTE: missing clear cockpit windows. Otherwise complete with all other parts. Includes decals and instructions. NOTE: decals are damaged. There is enough left that you could restore them using the procedure outlined in the two articles on this website about how to save old decals. If not, you will need to provide your own decals.

Monogram AC-47 Puff The Magic Dragon with Factory Camouflage Paint - Blue Box Issue, 1/90, PA148-150

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$34   

1966 issue with rare factory airbrushed camouflage paint and Tom Morgan boxart. Camouflage paint is in excellent condition. This kit has no assembly but NOTE: The lower intakes (on the bottom wing) are neatly painted black and the underside of the aft-most section of the rear fuselage is neatly airbrushed light gray. This is some overspray on the rudder, which can be removed with plastic polish (I recommend Novus brand, available on-line). There is no other painting. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
