Aurora Fokker DR-1 Triplane - Newsprint Issue, 1/48, 105-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$67   

Still factory sealed. This kit is in amazing investment-grade 'Mint' condition and the seal is completely intact. The DR-1 'Newspaper' issue is a a reissue of the classic 1956 kit. James Cox, who did much of the early artwork for Aurora, created a timeless classic for the original issue and this artwork was used well into the 1960s and possibly up till the final 'White Box' release before Aurora's demise. Mr. Cox also did unique artwork for the early Aurora Catalogs as well.

Pyro Natchez Mississippi River Packet, 1/160, B238-800

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair++

$159   

Rare hardbox issue from the mid 1960s. Very large and highly detailed model measures over 21 inches long when assembled. The Natchez was the famous rival of the Robert E Lee. The race between the two is considered a classic tale of The River. Although the Lee won, the circumstances were suspect and many people still considered the Natchez the fastest paddle-wheel packet ever. (For example, the Lee carried no payload and the Natchez was carrying passengers and a normal payload.) Molded in high-gloss tan, burgundy, green and gray plastic. All details of the real ship, including the wooden railings and carvings are duplicated. Includes full rigging instructions and thread. Never started. All the parts that were originally factory sealed are still in the factory sealed bags; the few parts that Pyro did not seal (paddles, hull and large deck parts) have been inventoried complete. With instructions, decals and flag sheet. Please note that while the box has heavy moisture/water damage, the decals, flag sheet and instructions (as well as all plastic parts) escaped damage and are 'excellent.'

Lindberg Douglas A4D-1 Skyhawk - (A-4), 1/48, 529-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$54   

Rare early issue of the Prototype Skyhawk from the mid 1950s. This is the smallest box that anyone has dared place a 1/48 scale A-4 in and the classic box art is by Ray Gaedeck Box. For some reason, this issue is rarer than the other Lindberg kits of that time. This model represents the very early Skyhawk, which is no surprise; Lindberg, like Aurora, often tried to be 'first to market' and did not hesitate to use prototypes for kits. Features detailed jet engine, opening inspection panel, pilot and ejection seat, opening canopy, full landing gear, centerline drop tank, wing rockets and display stand. Never started and inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The box is graded 'good+' because you can just see a very light stain on and below the drop tank.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

$95   

Still factory sealed. Rare late 1950 motorized hardbox issue with dramatic Ray Gaedke artwork. This model includes an electric motor to drive the propeller. Lindberg is a company with a fascinating history The original 'Lindberg Line' stretches back to the 1930s when Paul Lindberg drew plans for famous modeling magazines and marketed his balsa wood 'stick and tissue' by urging dealers to carry the '...Complete Lindberg Line'. After the war, Lindberg and Olsen had a strong hand in early United States injection molded kit development. Please see the article located on this website about early USA plastic kit manufacturers.

Monogram Curtiss P-36A Hawk (Model 75) - White Box Issue, 1/72, 6790-0080

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$22   

1979 issue and a very finely molded and detailed kit in the traditional Monogram style. There is no assembly but NOTE: the interior parts and seat are painted olive drab green. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. NOTE: while all parts numbers are present, the pitot tube, antenna and machine guns are broken off the wings and fuselage half. The antenna and pitot are present but the machine guns are gone. The Hawk P-36A has the dubious distinction of fighting on both sides and for more countries than any other plane in history during the opening years of WWII. This Hawk, one in a long progression of famous fighter aircraft, was the winner of a 1935 competition. The USAA Corps received the first aircraft in April of 1938 and the French ordered 100 aircraft in May of the same year. French Hawks shot down just over 30 German planes during the battle for France. The Germans captured the aircraft and sold them to Finland. Others were captured when the Germans overran Norway. In all over 800 Hawks were produced and served in China, Netherlands East Indies, Portugal, Great Britain, Thailand, Argentina and Peru. Although an excellent fighter in 1935, the Hawk was outclassed by the time the war started but when flown properly still gave a good account of itself.
