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

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$795   

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 (also the F-84 and F-51). The outer box is intact with the original cello and is in Excellent condition with edge wear as the primary flaw. The four kits are in mint boxes and have never started. Each is 100% inventoried complete with all parts/decals and instructions present.

Hawk Weird-Ohs Daddy The Way Out Suburbanite, 532-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$18   

Original issue hardbox model. NOTE: builder only (not collectible), please read carefully. In 1962, Bill Campbell thought that kids may be tired of the same old modeling subjects, and he created the Weird-Ohs. Of course it was not that simple - it never is. Please read Bill's own account of the Weird-Ohs on this website. Regardless of the path, the Weird-Ohs became an overnight sensation that helped launch the 'monster' and the 'figure' phase of modeling. NOTE: this model has minor but neat assembly. The rear tires halves (4 parts total), body tub top and bottom (2 parts), body halves (2 parts), suitcase halves (2 parts) and arm halves (4 parts) have been built to 'near mint to professional' quality. The lower body part is painted red to 'very good+' quality. There is no other painting or assembly. Inventoried and missing one small part: (1) of (2) #21, a small flat fin (triangle). Easily made from flat plastic stock using the remaining part as a pattern. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts, decals and instructions present.

Hasegawa Fokker DR.1 (DR-1) Triplane Museum Model - 1/8 Scale, 1/8, ZX3-69800

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$1200   

Very rare and large 1/8 scale museum quality kit. The three 1/8 aircraft in this series are widely considered to be the finest model aircraft ever produced. This kit duplicates the classic DR-1 using many of the original material in a near perfect representation of the inner structure of the aircraft. There are 857 parts made from die-cut plywood, Japanese cypress, cast soft metal, brass, aluminum, rubber, injection molded plastic and many other materials. The wingspan is 838mm (33 inches) when assembled. The engineering of the kit is world-class right down to the assembly plans. This kit has never been started. Inside, all the special internal boxes and inserts are included and in mint condition. Additionally, the vast majority of the parts are still in the factory sealed bags. The parts that were not sealed have been inventoried 100% complete. Includes all paperwork - illustrated parts list, instructions and three sets of roll-out plans. NOTE: plan set 'B' is in fair condition. It is complete but has wrinkles and some closed tears. Plans 'A' and 'C' are professionally printed copies of original Hasegawa plans from my collection. Please note, this item must be shipped insured.

Aurora Boeing B-52 Stratofortress, 1/270, 494-49

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$145   

Very rare and even rarer in this condition. First issue and with the one-year only rectangular logo. Dramatic Jo Kotula box art with 1956 date. The box is the finest I have seen. It has like-new color and gloss, four solid corners, no repairs, no tape or tape marks, no tags or tag marks, no fading, and no tear or missing litho. The only flaws are the light edge and corner wear shown at the bottom right and other (even lighter) shelf wear that probably not even visible in the photo. Molded in correct silver and clear with correct rectangular clear stand. A nice kit for that time, it features full centerline landing gear and outrigger struts and gear doors as well as clear cockpit canopy, outboard slipper fuel tanks, display stand and decals. It has the correct early rectangle-base clear Aurora stand, which is also shown on the instructions. Molded in the correct gloss silver and clear. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Instructions are mint and the decals are 'near mint.' It is interesting to note that this is not a reissue of the Comet molds - the two models are not even close to the same size or scale. This kit is original to Aurora, was made before Aurora acquired the Comet molds and also varies in a great many details. It appears that Aurora never even re-issued the Comet B-52, probably because they had a superior model already in the same low price range.

Aurora Martin B-26 Marauder, 1/46, 371-259

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$245   

Very rare first issue from the early 1950s. When Aurora moved to the West Hempstead plant, they planned a series of very large scale bombers. All kits released up to this time had been small. Aurora's instincts were correct, and the B-26, B-25 and B-29 were a big sales success. This box art was done by Jim Cox and was only used for about one year, making it very rare. The kit has never been started and is inventoried 100% complete with the original tissue paper, all parts, large clear stand, instructions and decals.

Nichimo Nakajima B5N2 Kate - Motorized Radar Aircraft 931 Sq / Carrier Zuiho / Commander Fuchida's Aircraft IJN Zuikaku / IJN Shokaku, 1/48, S-4813

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$34   

Very nicely molded model with all very fine recessed panel lines. Features highly detailed interior, engine, crew, choice of four load-out options and decals for four aircraft and painting guide. Markings are included for Fuchida's Pearl Harbor aircraft from Zuikaku (bomb load), Shokaku (many smaller bombs), Zuiho (Torpedo load) or a radar equipped aircraft from the 931 Air Squadron. The kit is intended to be motorized with the Mabuchi Baby motor and has full instructions for such, but the motor itself was not furnished by Nichimo. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Airfix Fairey Swordfish II - Royal Navy, 1/72, 02005-1

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG

$18   

Still factory sealed. Type four logo issue, likely from the late 1970s or 1980s.

Aurora Boeing B-29 Superfortress, 1/76, 372-259

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$125   

Rare 1957-1962 issue retaining the same artwork as the 1956 issue. This kit has arguably the most dramatic and fanciful B-29 composition from the 'Golden Era' of modeling. Note the square 'Northern Lights' logo has been replaced with the 'Famous Fighters' Aurora sunburst oval logo and there is a '$2.59' price circle at the upper right. I believe the 3rd issue. The box is in 'very good' condition with nice color and gloss. There are no split corner and no repairs. It does have general even wear. Molded in gloss silver and clear, with a big clear 'triangle-based' Aurora stand. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes 'near mint' condition decals and instructions. 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- almost right up until the end.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$65   

Addar was created by ex-Aurora associates and production spanned 1972 to 1977.

The Dash 80 has the prototype marking decals. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
