Aurora German Sea Raider Atlantis, 1/456, 710-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc +++

$900   

First issue. The hardbox is dated 1959 and has the "Famous Fighters" in the oval 'Northern Lights' logo. This is the only kit made of the infamous German WWII converted merchant raider which was the subject of several books and a major movie called 'Under Ten Flags.' The long WWII voyage was legendary, and the ship is well represented in this full-hull model. Covers can be removed to reveal hidden guns, torpedo tubes and the Ar-196 floatplane. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. From modeler Stephen Payne: Recommend that the builder or collector of this kit add the following books to their collection-The German Raider Atlantis by Captain Bernhard Rogge & Wolfgang Frank & Sea Raider Atlantis, Story of a German Surface Raider by Ulrich Mohr & A.V. Sellwood. The first book is by the ATLANTIS commander, Kapitan zur See Bernhard Rogge. He oversaw the transformation and outfitting in Bremen and captained the ship during her 602 day operational voyager which sank or captured 22 ships totaling 144,384 t (142,104 long tons). Rogge also was one of the few German officers of flag rank who was not arrested by the Allies after the war due to the way he had exercised his command of Atlantis. Captain J. Armstrong White, captain of the British CITY OF BAGHDAD, which Atlantis sank in July 1941, stated, "His treatment of prisoners left respect, instead of hatred."The second book is by the ATLANTIS First Officer, Ulrich Moher. Both books read much the same as the events related are the same, but it is interesting to see these events from the two perspectives. Captain White (see above) wrote the foreword to Atlantis, the Story of a German Surface Raider, written by U. Mohr & A. V. Sellwood.The German auxiliary cruiser Atlantis (HSK 2), known to the Kriegsmarine as Schiff 16 (SHIP 16) and to the Royal Navy as Raider-C, was a converted merchant vessel to German Hilfskreuzer (auxiliary cruiser) used for commerce raiding. Commerce raiders did not seek to engage warships, but rather attack enemy merchant shipping; the measures of success are tonnage destroyed (or captured) and time spent "at large" holding up enemy resources. Atlantis had the longest raiding career of any German commerce raider in either world war.

First issue from 1961 with the sunburst oval logo and 'Famous Fighters' in the border. Large scale kit with fantastic Jo Kotula box artwork.

Aurora DC-8 Jet Mainliner United Air Lines, 1/103, 387-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$155   

First issue dated 1959 and with 'Hobby Kits' in the oval logo border. Still a favorite among builders because it is the only early DC-8 in 1/100 scale and fairly accurate. Features full landing gear, early style turbo-jet engines, clear cockpit windows and can be easily built 'gear up' if you wish. With the large, clear, triangle-based Aurora 'World' stand.

Aurora AT-6 Texan Trainer, 1/48, 70-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$58   

Factory sealed. Dated 1960 but is actually later than that because there is no 'Famous Fighters' in the border of the oval logo.

Aurora Convair 880 Delta, 1/103, 383-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$225   

Still mint in the factory seal. Rare 1960 Delta Airlines issue. The Convair 880 and it's near sister 990 were very high performance airliners. Unfortunately they did not find favor with commercial operators. Only 65 880s were produced from 1959 to 1962. The aircraft was designed to be smaller and faster than the DC-8 and 707 - this market did not develop, however, and if it did it could have been served with less expensive designs.
