Very rare. From the late 1950s or very early 1960s. Early Heller kits had some wonderful engineering (such as in the Etendard IV) and this model is no exception. You can built this model and will look like the airplane on the cover with no painting at all. The kit is molded in white, silver/gray, clear and includes black rubber tires. The fuselage lower section is molded in silver along with the wings and engines, and the upper fuselage is in white. There is one large sheet of very colorful TAI decals including complete side pinstripes and tail design in 'excellent' condition and still protected by the factory wax paper. The landing gear and gear doors also function on this model. It even includes a factory tube of glue in a yellow capsule. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Very rare, and even rarer with the important fittings kit. This was Robbe's flagship model and was around $800 with the optional ship's fittings kit which is included. This full-scale model is designed for radio control operation with two props and rudders and provides great maneuverability even in rough water. The beautiful and huge hull is one piece molded ABS plastic and all other parts are pre-fabricated (die-cut) of wood and plastic. Includes hull, mast, funnel and small parts, die-cut decks, superstructure and crane parts, die-cut main frames and deck beams, clear glazing, double rudder system, R/C fitting set with tillers and pushrods, 35mm diameter screws, rubber rubbing strip, rails, anchor winch parts, optional fittings set and more. This example is never touched. It has not been started and all the parts are still exactly as the factory shipped them. The ones that were sealed are still sealed and the few that were not have been inventoried complete. With all plans/instructions. Unless you specify otherwise, this kit will be shipped in the huge and sturdy original box with paper covering the identification label and photo. If you choose to have it boxed again, extra shipping will apply. Please note, this may not ship to other countries who have size limited on postage because the box is 52.3 x 18.2 x 14.2 inches. Must be shipped insured.

Very, very rare- contains traces of the element 'unobtainium.' There is no internet or known auction history of one of these kits changing hands. Purchased new by a US Navy officer in about 1961 in Tokyo, Japan. He equipped himself nicely for a future R/C hobby upon his return to the states, but never built this kit. Features a large (1160 mm) wingspan and is specifically designed for R/C flight on a .9 to 1.5 size gas engine. This was a deluxe and highly prefabricated kit for that time with very high quality wood parts, of which 90% or more are completely cut out with the part number stamped in ink on each one. Woods are hardwood, plywood and balsa. Many of the parts are still held together with the unique color-tinted clear tape from this era of Japanese modeling. Other cut and shaped parts are still sealed in a plastic bag with a 'Picnic' header. This kit has sheeted fuselage sides which are also completely cut out. There is a sealed bag of hardware, sealed balloon wheels, plenty of silkspan-style covering material, fully formed wire landing gear and of course a very large set of actual size plans that includes R/C equipment placement guides. The kit has never been started. Some parts are still in the factory sealed bags and others are still factory taped as they were at the factory. The loose parts have been inventoried all present. Includes plans.

Very rare. The Mister Darby is a scale replica of a 150' ocean-going tug built by Halter Marine for Jackson Marine. Her job was moving oil drilling rigs at sea. Long out of production, this huge and powerful legendary kit weighs in at about 60 pounds complete and can tow a small boat with two full grown men around a lake. Features a beautiful one-piece fiberglass hull, superstructure, deck and cabins of die-cut plywood, full fittings with dozens of metal castings and details, complete plans and instructions and more. Also includes the rare Dumas #2340 Mister Darby Running Hardware for Twin Motor Installation. It is still factory sealed and includes (2) SS drive shafts, (2) stuffing boxes, one left and one right hand bronze props, left and right hand bronze prop struts, mounting plate, (2) driving pinion assembly, (2) driven gear assembly, (2) brass drive dogs, (2) set collars and misc. fasteners. The actual kit has never been touched and is still in the original factory shipping box with all packing material. The large box of parts/plans (everything other than the hull) is still factory sealed. Please note, this kit comes in a huge box that is 50 x 15 x 14 inches so it will not ship to countries with size restrictions. I will ship the kit in the original factory shipping box unless you specify other wise (and then additional shipping charges will apply). Shipping insurance is required.

First issue dated 1961 with John Steel box artwork. Aurora pulled out all the stops on this very large kit with a very large tooling cost to match. The result is a nicely detailed model that is well-designed for actual operation in water. As a bonus, the first issue only had the flight deck pre-painted with black background and white lines (as per the box art) and is in very good shape. The kit is over 33 inches long when assembled and is intended to be motorized. Very easy conversion to R/C (remote control). Aurora sold a separate motorizing kit that contained the electric motors and other needed parts. This kit features four (5 bladed) props, stuffing boxes, dual operational rudders, a very large sheet color decals for the ship and airwing, waterline striping tape, moving elevators, twin Sea Sparrow launchers, plated display stand, detailed island structure with clear windows, large airwing with 40 aircraft including F-4 Phantom, F-8 Crusader, A-4 Skyhawk and two Hup Helicopters and more. The kit has never been started. Many parts are still in the factory sealed internal bags. The ones that were no longer sealed have been inventoried and the actual ship is complete but NOTE: the display stand is missing one small round ball (an end cap on a rod) and the instructions look like photocopies; however, Aurora also issued them exactly like this when they ran out of originals (I have seen it often). Otherwise complete with all other parts. Aurora sold the motorizing parts separately and they are not included. In case you are curious, the 'sold separately' parts are two steel ballast weights, four brass battery clips and 4 battery contacts, wire, two electric motors and small nuts and bolts. All other hardware, gear boxes, motor mounts, worm gears, stuffing boxes, metal shafts and tubes, battery box etc are included with the standard kit.

Very rare. Still factory sealed and in investment-grade 'near mint+' condition. Aurora Plastics of Canada, Ltd. issue from 1964. Nicely done, large, very near 1/100 scale kit with full landing gear detail. Molded in white and clear and with the classic large clear Aurora 'World Triangle' base. According to the box top, this kit comes with two sets of decals - a large sheet of classic TCA markings for CF-TJA 801 which includes all TCA and DC-8 logos, stripes, windows, registration and more. The other sheet very large and extensive Air Canada decal sheet featuring full white and red vertical stabilizer and rudder wraps, complete side striping and windows, cockpit windows (although the kit has clear cockpit windows), black glare panel, full side logos, doors and registration CF-TJA. Naturally I cannot confirm this as the kit is still factory sealed; that is simply what I see in opened issues I have had. Aurora Canada issued the DC-9, 747 and DC-8 with this colorful Air Canada paint scheme.
