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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$115   

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 with the United markings carefully painted out, the TWA Starstream markings added and the UNITED neon sign removed 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.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$125   

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.

Monogram Boeing 737 United Airlines (T-43A) - (Ex-Aurora) (Modified Molds), 1/72, 5415

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$155   

Still the only 1/72 injection molded 737 and a big improvement from the Aurora kit. 1978 issue after Monogram bought Aurora's molds. Monogram only reissued the best and most commercially viable models. The 737 fell into that category but only after Monogram carefully modified the molds for accuracy. The result is an excellent early 737-100. First, Monogram filled in the side windows. Then they added very fine and accurate full panel lines to the entire model even down to the nacelles. and Much-needed flap hinge covers (fairings) were added to the lower wings. Contains greatly improved, full, excellent United Airlines markings and window decals. Could be converted to Military Transport T-43A, but you must furnish your own decals. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: decals were adult-cut in half so the 1st owner could store them in a zip lock bag. The result is that they are in amazing 'near mint' condition but they are cut in half.
