Monogram Little Air Force Assortment Gift Set - Speedee-Bilt F-51 (P-51) / F6F and Superkit F-51 and F-84

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$950   

Very rare 1950s "pre-injection molded" gift set. Long before injection molded kit were made in the USA, Monogram produced perhaps the finest pre-fabricated wooden kits with plastic details. The Speedee-Bilt series were flying models with pre-painted and cut wooden parts with plastic props, cowls, pilots, etc. The Superkits were smaller static models with precarved wooden parts and many plastic details. The kits themselves are rare today, but the gift set is very rare. Monogram issued very few gift sets for injection kits, and even fewer in the early 1950s for the wooden kits. The gift set consists of a special 'Christmas' box with a tray and lift-off top with a cello window. This one contains 2 Superkits (F-84 Thunderjet and F-51 Mustang) and 2 Speedee-Bilts (the F6F Hellcat and F-51 Mustang). The outer box is near mint and in investment grade condition - which is amazing considering the age of the set. Even the original cut-out add for MonoDope and MonoGlue is present. The four kits are in mint boxes and have never started. Each is 100% inventoried complete with all parts/decals and instructions present.

Aurora Convair B-58 Hustler, 1/76, 375-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$145   

Rare box art dated 1964. This is the second release of the largest scale Hustler released by Aurora. The fantastic hardbox box artwork is not signed by the artist. This kit was issued with the Jo Kotula box art for several years, this artwork for a few short years, then the "Big A" artwork till Aurora went out of business in the 1970s. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The stand is the older clear 'triangle world' two-piece stand, which is correct for this kit but NOTE: someone put a B-25 decal on the stand base.

Delta Macchi MC 72 Stavebnice Racing Float Plane (MC-72) with Booklet, 1/72

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$29   

Color box art issue. Very rare kit of the famous 1930s air racer. This unique aircraft caused quite a stir with its counter-rotating props and twin engines mounted in-line. Contains the well-produced booklet on the MC-72 with many detailed photos. NOTE: this kit has "professional" quality (done as good as can be done for this kit) minor assembly as follows: float halves and radiators; also wing halves are assembled. There is no other assembly and zero painting. The airplane has been inventoried with all parts, decals and instructions present. NOTE: missing display stand.

Heller Pamir, 1/150, 80887

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$215   

Very large and highly detailed kit. Measures 75 cm in length and 40 cm high. 738 parts. Has billowing vac sails and full rigging supplies and instructions. Inside, the kit is exactly as it left the factory. Never started. The parts are still in the factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. Sails are in 'excellent+' condition. The Pamir was bulit in 1905 at Blohm & Voss shipyards to become the 51st ship in the fleet of R.F. Laeisz of Hamberg ("The Flying P Line" was a reference to the starting letter of most of the ships names and the numerous records that they held). She was a four masted barque of 4425 tons with a crew of 33. She saw extensive trade service between the wars and served in both World Wars. After WWI she was given away as compensation; however her original owner bought her back in the 1920s. Before WWI she was sold to a Finnish cereal shipping fleet. Her beauty saved her from torpedoes from a Japanese Submarine - the Commander simply could not sink so wonderful a ship. In her 40th year of existence, the Pamir was bought with the Passat by a Dutch demolition crew. Yet at the last moment the West German merchant marine bought both ships to train cadets in the 1950s. During one such training trip, the Pamir was lost under mysterious circumstances in an Atlantic storm in 1957.

Aurora Boeing B-29 Superfortress, 1/76, 372-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$175   

Rare 1960s issue retaining the same artwork as the 1956 issue. This is likely the 4th issue. I believe the 3rd issue is almost identical but has "Famous Fighters" in the oval logo. That would date this kit as 1963 and up till the 'Big A' box issue. Note the square 'Northern Lights' logo has been replaced with the Aurora sunburst oval logo. This kit has arguably the most dramatic and fanciful B-29 artwork from the 'Golden Era' of modeling. The box is in excellent condition. There are no split corner and no repairs. Responding to market information that boys wanted larger kits, Aurora introduced the B-26 followed by the B-29 and B-25, all of which sold well for many years. Missing stand. Never started. Otherwise complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Lindberg Nautilus Atomic Submarine, 704

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$145   

Rare first issue hardbox with script Lindberg logo. In the 1930s, Paul Lindberg was designing, building and flying stick and tissue aircraft like so many other men and boys of the time. His plans appear in Popular Aviation magazine and he made a good name for himself. When injection molding showed the way to increased kits sales in the late 1940s/early 1950s, he quickly teamed up with Mr. Olsen to create 'O-lin' models. Ray Gaedke was one the early artists for O-lin. In the early 1950s Paul Lindberg had control and had his name as the logo. The first logo is the one on this kit - 'Lindberg' in script with 'Products' arched across the top and 'Incorporated' arched across the bottom to create a broken circle around the script. Ray Gaedke continued his bold and colorful artwork for Lindberg, such as the box painting for the Nautilus here. The Nautilus appears to be the first sea vessel that Lindberg cut it's own molds for - the Chris Craft Express Cruiser, PT Boat, LST and Fleet Submarine (Ex-Varney) were done by O-lin. The model is an interesting work of fact and fiction - it includes a deck gun and what looks like a Regulus II missile for the deck! The scale is not known but it measures about 12 inches long when assembled. The model has never been started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
