Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Aurora Lockheed P-38 Lightning, 1/48, 99-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++


The Jo Kotula box artwork is dated 1959, but the kit is slightly later (early 1960s) due to the '130' price extension and the lack of 'Famous Fighters' in the ovals. The box is 'excellent++' with like new color and gloss and four solid corners. Molded in silver and clear the the 'triangle' clear stand and stand arm. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. The Aurora issues of the 1/48 scale P-38 are interesting to say the least. The first issue is the Brooklyn kit with the P-38/B-24 box artwork. Inside, the plastic is light blue with minimal surface detail and a clear canopy and rectangular stand that says 'Aurora Plastic Corp. Brooklyn, 4, N.Y.'. There are no landing gear, gear doors or mass balances. The second issue has identical box art, plastic color, decals and rectangular stand, but the box and instructions says 'West Hempstead' instead of Brooklyn. The clear stand mold has had 'Brooklyn' milled out, and there is no location on the stand. The third issue has the same artwork, but the full color 'Aurora Line' logo is used - but the big changes were on the inside. Aurora modified the molds, adding a pitot tube, elevator mass balances and landing gear struts, wheels and doors. The decals and stand remain the same, but the new instructions reflect the changes to the molds. This time the kit is molded in an attractive metallic blue. The fourth issue dropped the Jim Cox artwork in favor of a new P-38 flying from right to left across a threatening sky. The plastic still metallic light blue and the decals and stand remain unchanged. The new details were retained. The fifth issue was 1959. The oval 'Famous Fighters' logo was used with Jo Kotula artwork of two P-38s. The detail level of the kit remained the same, but it was molded in olive drab and clear. The newer 'Triangle' base was added at this time. Further issues kept this box artwork, but the oval logo changed as well as the price extensions. This is a 6th issue due to the lack of 'Famous Fighters' in the oval, and the 99-130 price.

Hawk Nieuport 17 - Flip-Top Box Issue, 1/48, 706

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+


First issue from the early 1950s in the one-piece box. Molded in high gloss yellow and black. The model has not been started. Complete with instructions and all parts. This kit is from early in this first issue, and the first kits were not issued with decals. In the 1920s through the 1940s Hawk made constant scale 1/48 aircraft kits from wood. In 1946 they added plastic injection molded kits to the line and were possibly the first injection molded kit manufacturer in the USA. When Hawk made an early jump to all-plastic kits they kept the 1/48 scale and created these new one-piece boxes with two color artwork.

La Belle D&RG Double Deck Stock Car HOn3 Narrow Gauge - Craftsman Model, 1/87, HOn3-35

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+


Please read the article on this website about older HO train kits and the modeling revolution they caused in the late 1930s/1940s. During the golden era of realistic train models, La Belle Woodworking Company created perhaps the very finest scale kits of early American equipment. The kit features die cut hardwood parts (no balsa) such as pre-cut and scribed sides all cut to the correct size, car ends done in the same fashion, excellent underside and cast metal details, building instructions and plans and decals/transfers. I have seen these models built and they look identical to the real prototypes. The kit has not been started and is complete with two packets of small parts still factory sealed, and all other parts inventoried complete with transfers and instructions.

Top Flite Douglas D-558-2 Skyrocket SUPERFORM - Flying Balsa Aircraft For Jetex or Catapult- (D5582), C2-100

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Very rare, 1950s model kit that is very highly prefabricated. The SUPERFORM kits were a few steps above the Jigtime models and priced so also. As a result, few sold and Top Flite discontinued the line after only a few years. Features completely formed wood fuselage shells, factory-painted wood parts, fully formed one-piece (each) wings, fully formed tail feathers, numerous detailed plastic parts including exhaust rockets, intakes, nose, pilot and all gear struts, fully formed wheels, hardware, rubber bands, two sheets of colorful decals, excellent illustrated building and flying instructions and more. There are full instructions for Jetex installation or using a rubber band launcher. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The only other advertised SUPERFORM kit listed is the F-86D Sabre Jet with a 13" wingspan.

Life-Like 1934 Ford Three Window Coupe - (ex-Pyro), 1/32, C308-70

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++


1970s early Life-Like issue from 1960s Pyro molds - note it still has the Pyro kit number. Features well detailed underside chassis with separately molded front axle and suspension, full interior, wire wheels and more. Molded in deep blue and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. In some cases, the specific car and owner is on the box. Pyro advertised these as ideal for slot car conversion.
