Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$95   

Sale Pending
Email for availability.

Rare, first issue artwork from about 1955-56. This was a fine effort by Aurora for that time and an impressive model when assembled. Features retracting pontoons and rotating props. Includes correct early logo instructions which show the clear 'Triangle World' stand. This correct stand is included. This must be one of the first instances of the 'Triangle' stand being used as it is normally associated with oval 'Famous Fighter' logo kits. Molded in gloss silver and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: one small "US NAVY" decal is cut out and missing. The rest of the decals are intact and in 'very good+' condition. The box displays better than the 'good' rating but is graded as such because of there is general wear as shown, fading on the right short side panel and some creasing on the lower long side panel. It is interesting to note that the early Aurora PBY issue has at least three small variations to the box top. The very first issue says '1/4 SCALE MODEL' at the top right. Clearly, this kit is not 1/48 scale and someone at Aurora corrected it. Following that, there are two known corrections: early and late. On the early version, the '1/4' was blotted out with a dark blue oval or circle and '5/32' was added after the word 'SCALE.' It was now correct, but the appearance was not completely professional. This box is the later version - on the next box order, they kept the '1/4' blotted out but added a proper looking '5/32' in front of the blot.

Lindberg Douglas A4D-1 Skyhawk - (A-4), 1/48, 529-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$54   

From the mid 1950s. Early issue small narrow box with classic Ray Gaedeck Box Art. For some reason, this model is rarer than the other Lindberg kits of that time. This model represents the very early (probably prototype) Skyhawk, which is no surprise; Lindberg, like Aurora, often tried to be 'first to market' and did not hesitate to use prototypes for kits. Features detailed jet engine, opening inspection panel, pilot and ejection seat, opening canopy, full landing gear, centerline drop tank, wing rockets and display stand. Never started and inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The box displays slightly better than the 'good-' rating but is graded as such because there is clear tape on the four sides where the box was taped shut more than once.

Lindberg Douglas F4D-1 Skyray Cellovision Issue - (F4D1), 1/48, 562-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good+

$54   

Still factory sealed and the Cellovision window on the back is 100% intact. Rare 'green' box art issue from the late 1950s. Fantastic artwork is by Ray Gaedke, who painted both of the Skyray issues for Lindberg. Kit features fine raised details, moving rudder and wing control surfaces, complete jet engine and opening inspection cover, pilot, two drop tanks, underwing rockets and more. Lindberg is a company with a fascinating history The original 'Lindberg Line' stretches back to the 1930s when Paul Lindberg drew plans for famous modeling magazines and marketed his balsa wood 'stick and tissue' by urging dealers to carry the '...Complete Lindberg Line'. After the war, Lindberg and Olsen had a strong hand in early United States injection molded kit development. Please see the article located on this website about early USA plastic kit manufacturers.

Lindberg A-4 Skyhawk Navy Light Attack Bomber and Tractor - Cellovision Issue, 1/48, 555-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good

$69   

Still factory sealed. Rare late 1950s issue with Ray Gaedke artwork. The clear Cellovision window and trading card on the back are both 100% intact and very good. The kit was well detailed for that time and includes rockets and drop tanks, detailed engine, opening engine access panel, opening canopy, pilot figure, moving ailerons and rudder and more. The scale tractor is molded in yellow and features a detailed engine and suspension, removable engine access panels and a driver figure. The box has a crunch at the lower left, edge wear and a creased lower long side panel.

Lindberg F7U-1 Cutlass - (F7U1), 1/48, 510-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$75   

Sale Pending
Email for availability.

1956 or '57 Gaedke artwork with three aircraft and the carrier. Molded in medium blue and clear and includes decals for the box art aircraft including red and white checkerboards for the rudders. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. Please note that the box displays better than the 'good+' rating but is graded as such because there is clear tape on the long sides and also tape pull damage to one side as well as general wear. Dating Lindberg kits is problematic to a near complete lack of release information; early catalogs normally do not have dates, and there are no dates on early boxes or instructions & decals. However, by records kept when the kits were purchased new, we know this kit was issued either in 1956 or 1957.

Airlane Hawker Tempest - 8.25 Inch Wingspan Pre-Fabricated Flying Aircraft, T-3

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$24   

Rare flying rubber-powered model from the early 1950s. This kit is fresh from old store stock that was carefully stored; as a result, it is in exceptional, almost never touched condition. The boxes are as they left the factory with new colors and no only slight wear as shown. Inside, this is a 8.25" wingspan flying wooden model aircraft that is prefabricated along the lines of the Comet Struct-O-Speed. Features all die-cut parts, one-piece balsa wings & tail feathers, fuselage bulkheads & sides, top and bottom in balsa, balsa prop, rubber motor, cut-out covering templates on the plans, cut-out insignia and illustrated instructions. Since this model is all balsa, there is no tissue. Never started. The inside is exactly as it left the factory It is 100% complete. Little is known about Airlane Model Company, but they attracted some of the top model aircraft talent in the country. They were located at 318 W. 29th Street, Chicago, IL. Many Airlane plans were drawn by Bill Gough, who is a well known Model Aviation Hall of Fame Inductee. He was involved from 1925 onwards. He designed kits for Comet from 1935 to 1938, and after the war developed plastic kits for Monogram and Lindberg. He wrote early articles on model aviation for Sunday newspapers; at one point, he was in 17 national papers. His designs often appeared numerous magazines, especially in "Model Aviation" where he was known for brilliant, innovative and beautiful models that flew well. Bill was a competitive flier for more than 50 years. Starting in 1932 as a Junior Birdman, he competed for years in Chicago area contests. Later, he took parts in the AMA Nats and continued right up until 1984. His list of competition wins is too long to list here. As for Airlane, they had a series of wooden boat kits ("W" line), a series of wagon (old west style) models, sold glue with their name on it (in 5 and 10 cent sizes) as well as six aircraft lines- "X" solid scale (non-flying) models, "T" with <10" wingspans, "B" line with large 24 inch wingspans, "R" (larger wingspan, 50 cents) and "Q" (smaller, 25 cents and "D" line with large wingspans for gas engines .074 to .099,) flying kits. The R line included R1 through R12, Q was Q1 through Q15, "D" was D1 and D2, the T line was T1 through T6, B was B1-B3, the ships were W-1 through W-3 and there was even a line of solid scale models that were X-1 through X-6.

Comet North American P-51B Mustang Speed Glider - 18 inch Wingspan Flying Model, G2

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$44   

From 1944. The 'Speed Glider' here was designed by the great Carl Goldberg. This type of model was tied to a string, which was in turn connected to a wooden stick 2 or 3 feet long. An accomplished pilot could whip the aircraft around, performing an excellent variety of stunts. As you can imagine, the kit has very sturdy construction to take these high speed maneuvers. It features two sheets of die cut, thin hardwood parts, hardwood and balsa stock, two sheets of full color covering material with complete aircraft color, windows and insignia (which completely eliminates painting) and detailed plans with balance and flight information. The fuselage is profile, while the wings and tail surfaces are built up the traditional stick and tissue way. Although in the end, there is no tissue but the superb full color decorated paper wraps that cover all the surfaces of the model. This kit has never been started. Inventoried complete with all parts, covering papers and plans. Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.

Rogers Motor Company LST Landing Ship Tank with LCVP, 1/256, 195

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$125   

Rare, highly pre-fabricated and superbly detailed kit from 1945. Very high quality wood and metal scale LST measuring 15 inches long when assembled. Features a completely pre-carved hardwood hull, wooden hardwood superstructure parts that are completely cut and shaped, preformed gun tubs, details such as anchors, guns, winches hatches, gun supports, vents, hatch covers, capstan, gun shield, propeller, bow door, life rafts, davits and LCVP (2 included) that are all made from metal, wood, heavy embossed bristol board and other materials as well. Includes full size plans with detailed parts list and instructions. The kit has never been started. All the small parts are still sealed in factory bags. All parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete including the plans. Rogers was an early producer of miniature gas engines for free-flight and early radio control model kits and often had large adds for these engines in hobby magazines. The full company name on the box is listed as 'Rogers Motor Company Detroit Michigan' and the 'Scale Model Division' is listed as Tawas City, Michigan. Right near the end of WWII, Rogers made a very short journey into kit manufacturing. As you would expect from an engine manufacture, the kits were all highly prefabricated, had excellent detail and were fairly complicated. Rogers produced at least four kits - the M4 Sherman Tank, 40MM AA Gun and Carriage (1/16 scale), Army Weasel and LST. These kits were likely produced in that order, with the LST being released around late 1945/early 1946. I have seen several of these kits built and they make excellent displays.
