$75

Aurora P-38 Lightning, 1/48, 99-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$145   

Very rare. Of all the P-38 variants, this one seems to turn up the least. I even doubted the existence of it for a time. This would be the fourth issue and is most likely from 1957. It uses the same artwork as the 1955/56 Third issue, but Aurora dropped the rectangular 'Aurora Line' logo and Famous Fighters of All Nations logo. Molded in a very high gloss olive drab and clear, with the correct clear two-piece 'World' triangle based stand. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, exceptional condition decals and instructions. As with typical with Aurora, they used the 1956 instructions, replaced the old logo with the new, added the Parent's Magazine seal but left an illustration of the old stand (for which 1956 was the last year).

First and only issue from 1956 with the rectangular Northern Lights logo. The box is in investment-grade 'near mint' condition. Has many working features: detailed engine with removable cowlings, full cockpit and retractable landing gear. Molded in gloss olive green and clear. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions.

Aurora Lockheed F-104 Starfighter, 1/110, 291-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+++

$80   

Later issue with simplified logo; possibly mid 1960s. Condition of the box is almost as it left the factory, with beautiful gloss and color and four perfect corners. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Sterling Fairchild 24K with 'Auto-Magic' Pilot - 22 inch Wingspan Control Line or Free Flight, M-3

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$35   

Mid 1960s stick-and-tissue flying model with special 'Auto Magic Pilot' feature and 22 inch wingspan. Can be built for scale static display, rubber free-flight or gas powered control line or Auto Magic Pilot, where the aircraft flies by itself on a tether and maintains level flight. Features full size plans, many sheets of die-cut balsa wood parts, main spars, stringers, tissue, completely formed and painted wooden wheels, die-cut plywood parts, clear material for windows, vacuformed cowl and other parts, steel pre-shaped landing gear strut and full decals. Full size plans are included with highly detailed text instructions also. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts including decals and instructions. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they had the action features and were much nicer than most of other kits of this type.

Ideal Aeroplane & Supply SS America Ocean Liner / Troop Ship USS West Point / S.S. Australis - Wooden Ship Kit, 1/330, 605

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$575   

Very rare and an excellent example. Large wooden and metal kit builds to just over 26 inches long. This model is of the SS America Ocean Liner, which was designed by the famous naval architect William Francis Gibbs. She was laid down in 1938 and entered service on August 22 1940 as the flagship of the United States Lines. World War II interrupted her passenger service. The ship was active through the war. She narrowly escaped being sunk off Singapore during the Japanese invasion. After the war she resumed her North Atlantic route. The liner was the pride of the US Merchant fleet before the USS United States was commissioned. When the 'Big U' entered service, the two liners were stable mates and often appeared in the same travel agency posters and prints. By 1964 aircraft had taken a large section of the ocean liner travelers away, and the America was sold to Chandris Group and was renamed the Australis. She sailed for 14 years in a very successful career and was the last liner to sail from Southampton to Australia/New Zealand. She was laid up in 1977. She changed owners several times, but was never again successful. While being towed to Thailand, the lines broke and she ran aground in the Canary Islands, where the wreck broke up after time - but not before the locals rescued many items from the ship. The model box is very good and the kit inside is in as-new condition. Features pre-carved hull, metal fittings, very large full size plans, print wood and heavy cardstock, clear material for windows, color flag sheet, building instructions with perspective views and rigging material and diagrams. Never started. I believe that I was the first one to remove the parts from the box when I performed the inventory. All of the fittings are either still in factory sealed bags or inventoried complete. The parts that were never sealed are 100% complete including plans. You can convert it to the USS West Point if you have photos of the ship (which are on the internet) - the main difference is the addition of lifeboats and different paint. Photos of the S.S. Australis will provide the needed data to convert her to that ship, but this conversion will require more work than the West Point. Please NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured. The travel agency poster does NOT come with the kit and is used for illustrative purposes only.

Hubley 1930 Packard Model 740 Custom Roadster, 1/22, 860K-500

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$125   

From the 1970s. Very well detailed with 143 parts. Includes metal body, chassis, hood, engine and other detail parts with injection molded details, clear parts, and a large tree of chrome plated parts. Features a full rolling chassis just like the real car with excellent engine detail, removable hood, complete exhaust and suspension, working steering, flexible radiator hoses, rubber tires, chrome spoke wheels and working worm-gear steering. Has full interior detail with very clear thin windshields and special interior side panels. The kit has never been started. Most parts are still in the factory sealed bags; the plastic parts bag was torn, so I opened it and inventoried those parts; they are complete, along with the few other parts that were never factory sealed. With instructions and decals. In the 1930s Packard was the style leader in America and a beautiful, fast status symbol. Packards were not the most expensive, but were the most desired cars. The 1930s Packards are seen as the high point of the brand.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

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.
