Aurora Boeing B-47 Stratojet, 1/180, 493-49

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$155   

From 1956. Very rare first issue with 'Famous Fighters' square 'Northern Lights' logo. Classic Jo Kotula artwork. This issue only lasted one year, as in 1957 the new oval logo box was used. The box is in excellent condition with all solid corners, no fading or stains, no price tags or marks . Somehow, this box escaped the factory thin tape, as there are not even any marks for that. Inside, the model is as new down to the original packing tissue. The parts are high gloss silver. The instructions are dated 1956 and correctly show the old style logo and square clear stand. The decals and stand are correct for this issue also. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts, decals, instructions and correct square clear 2-piece stand.

O-Lin Republic Seabee Amphibian - (Lindberg), 1/48, 503

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$119   

Very rare kit. The Seabee was produced as a high performance sport amphibian. This is a very hard-to-fine original O-line kit in the small box and advertisement for O-line cement on the top. Produced in 1949 or just before. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. O-Lin (Olin) was founded by Paul Lindberg and a Mr. Olsen - hence the company name. Although a producer of flying models in the 1930s, O-line produced some of the earliest American injection molded kits in the late 1940s. In 1950 the partnership may have ended, because all branding was changed to Lindberg and Paul Lindberg.

Hasegawa Grumman S2F-1 (S-2A) Tracker Hi-Vis Paint Scheme, 1/72, 1102

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$48   

1970s Hi-Vis issue. Nicely detailed for that time and never started. Inventoried 100% complete including all parts, decals and instructions. Over 1000 Trackers were completed for the Navy as carrier-based submarine hunters. Grumman was awarded the contract in 1950, and in 1952 the first XS2F-1 flew. The large belly radome contained the PAS-38 search radar and the AWQ-10 MAD detector was in the tail. ALD-3 ECM performed DF (direction finding) duties, and the 70 million candle power spotlight lit up targets at night.

Trackers saw service in several other Navies including Canada.

Hasegawa-Frog Lockheed P-38 J or L Lightning - USAF (3 Aircraft) or ROC Republic Of China Taiwan, 1/72, JS-029-250

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+

$42   

Rare Japan Hasegawa/Frog early issue. As you know, AMT marketed Frog in the USA as AMT-Frog. Frog also marketed Hasegawa kits in the UK, but with no Hasegawa identification. What is even less known is that Hasegawa marketed Frog kits in Japan under the Hasegawa/Frog label. The parts appear to be molded in England while the decals, box and instructions were all made in Japan. This P-38 is one of those kits. This is a very early example with the early rectangle logo; the Frog logo is immediately to the right. Most Japan issue kits had special features and this one is no exception. It includes a special round-based clear two-piece globe stand, a unopened tube of Hasegawa cement and additional decals - no fewer than four different Lightnings are represented with paint guides. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the box displays better than the 'fair+' grade but is noted as such because the right short side is badly water damaged. There is no water damage to the parts, decals or instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$145   

Very, very rare and an excellent investment. Shizukyo started in the 1960s but was out of business before the end of the decade.

Aurora Boeing 727 TWA Jetliner - (727-100), 1/96, 354-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$95   

Rare 2nd issue dated 1963 but with the '249' kit number extension. If you look closely, this is the same artwork as the United 727 from 1962, but the Aurora artist carefully painted out the United markings, added the TWA Starstream markings and removed the UNITED neon sign from the background. Large, near 1/100 scale kit includes full landing gear, clear cockpit windows, full color decals and display stand. This model remains popular with 1/100 airliner modelers because it is the only 'short' body (-100) near this scale. Molded in white and clear with the big, clear 'world' triangle display stand. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
