Strombecker Convair Manned Lunar Reconnaissance Vehicle - by Krafft Ehricke, 1/91, D37-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$215   

Very rare 1950s kit. Strombecker issued a series of exotic space craft from Convair designer Krafft Ehricke and the Disney 'Man in Space' series between 1954 and 1956. This is the one that has not been reissued, making it hard to find. Large and interesting model makes an idea display alone or with the other spacecraft in this series. The spaceship has never been started but NOTE: the two stand arm halves are assembled. There is no other assembly. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Decals are in 'very good' condition and the instructions are in amazing 'near mint' condition. Please note that the box displays much better than the 'very good+' grade but is rated as such because there is clear tape on the four sides where someone 'resealed' it in the past. This kit must be shipped insured.

Second issue dated 1959 with fantastic Jo Kotula artwork and Famous Fighters Sunburst logo. This model of the dreaded 'Flying Razor' of WWI is molded in a beautiful metallic high-gloss green and black plastics. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. The Fokker D-VIII was a great performer but it came too late to change the tide of the air war. It started life as the Fokker E.V, one of the first warplanes to have the cantilever wing. This advancement was the result of a long-term Fokker project to perfect this technology. In addition to greatly reducing drag, a properly built cantilever wing is very light and strong. This wing was first used on prototype V17 and then on V28 which took part in the Second Fight Competition (July 6-14 1918) where the most experienced German front line pilots chose new fighters for late war service. V28 was chosen for it's excellent flying properties and 200 of the production aircraft, known as the Fokker E.V, were ordered. Over 289 aircraft were delivery. The E.V began front line service on August 5, 1918; Lt. Emil Rolff of Jasta 6 reported an aerial victory on August 17. However, the day before, an E.V suffered catastrophic wing failure. Two days later, the same failure cost Lt. Rolff his life. All E.Vs were immediately grounded. A detailed investigation showed that there were fatal defects in the wing assembly caused by slack manufacturing processes. Although it was not his fault, Fokker took this opportunity to re-design and strengthen the wing. Existing E.V aircraft received new wings and newly built aircraft were designated D.VIII. Modified aircraft made it back to the front in November, too late for service. However, the aircraft saw active service after that war with the Freikorps air units, the Polish Air Force against Russia, the Dutch Air Force and an unspecified number went to France and the USA.

Aurora Fokker E-111 Eindekker, 1/48, 134-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$46   

1963 hardbox with Jo Kotula artwork. First issue; please note the front has the blue oval logo and the side panel logos do have 'Famous Fighters' in the border. Molded in the correct gloss tan and black plastic. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. 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 Nieuport 28, 1/48, 108-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$45   

Dated 1957, but this is likely the 1958-1959 issue due to the 79 cent price extension on the part number. This classic Kotula artwork is one of my personal favorites for Jo's Aurora WWI series. Molded in gloss light gray and black. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.

Aurora Spad XIII, 1/48, 107-69

This is part of a popular and very successful series of 1/48 scale WWI aircraft that Aurora started in 1956 and added to well into the 1960s. Many of the line were in production right up until the demise of Aurora in the mid 1970s Molded in correct high-gloss olive drab and black plastic. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Aurora Bell AH-1G Huey Cobra - Assault Helicopter - Rectangle Box Issue, 1/48, 501

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$39   

Big 'A' logo issue is dated 1972 and this is likely the fourth issue of this kit. In the late 1960s Aurora realized that the older molds were out of date and modelers were demanding more realism. They made a new set of molds for ships, airplanes and helicopters. These were significant improvements as the new molds were on par with current offerings. This Cobra kit is one of the improved models. Features full cockpit, pilot and copilot figures, rotating main and rear rotors and optional weapons load of miniguns or rocket pods. Never started. Inventoried and NOTE: missing one part, a horizontal stabilizer. The other one is present to use as a pattern. Otherwise includes all other parts, decals and instructions.

1956 first and only issue in remarkable condition inside and out - the finest I have ever seen. The box top is in 'Excellent+++' condition. It has factory-new color and gloss, no fading, stains, holes or tears. There are no price tags, no tag marks and no tape or tape marks (other than the factory sealing tape of course). Amazingly, there are no marks from the decorative ribbon Revell shipped them with, which is very rare. Flaws include: the creases shown at the lower left and upper right corners, light and isolated edge and corner wear (mainly at the upper right top edge). Inside, all of the correct factory divider trays are present. Nothing has been started. Three of the aircraft are still in the original factory sealed bags. The F-89 and F-102 are not sealed but have been inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. All kit include the correct clear 'Revelving' Globe-based stand. Even includes the colorful, factory-sealed tube of Revell S Cement. The tray (lower box) is in 'excellent++' condition. It would be difficult to find a better example of this kit, especially since there is no ribbon stain on the box top.
