Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG to Exc

Sold   

Includes both die-cast, beautifully detailed factory-built, painted and decaled models. One is mint and never removed from the box.

Monogram Japanese Submarine I-19 with Glen Seaplane - (ex-Aurora), 1/275, 3103

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG+

Sold   

Still factory sealed. From original Aurora molds. The I-19 is famous for firing history's most successful torpedo spread off Guadalcanal. On September 14, 1942, the I-19 was patrolling of the Solomons when the crew made visual contact with the American forces. After working into position, she fired a 6 torpedo spread. Three hit and sank the US Carrier CV-7 WASP, and the remaining three exploded against the BB North Carolina and the destroyer O'Brien. The destroyer sank and the North Carolina had to be repaired at Pearl till November 16, 1942. The I-19's Glen seaplane also flew night reconnaissance on February 23, 1942 over Pearl Harbor for the planned second attack by Emily flying boats on that base. Large scale kit is almost 16 inches long when assembled. This is an excellent model for that time from Aurora's improved efforts of the late 1960s/early 1970s. Aurora knew that the older kits were outclassed and cut a new series of better molds including several ships, helos and subs. The result was higher mold quality and very good detail, such as this kit. Includes display stand, decals, periscope and cranes, Glen seaplane, conning tower and deck guns.

Monogram Wolfpack U-505 Type IX U-Boat - (ex-Aurora), 1/209, 3102

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

1979 issue from the original Aurora molds. When Monogram purchased Aurora, they reissued some of the Aurora kits - but only the ones that met or came close to meeting Monogram quality standards. Molded in medium gray plastic. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. This model is a copy of the captured U-505 that is displayed at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago.

Monogram Curtiss P-36A Hawk (Model 75) - White Box Issue, 1/72, 6790

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

Dated 1973. Well detailed and molded in silver and clear plastic. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: the decals are intact and complete but have age micro-cracking. Please see the article (on this website) on how to restore and use old decals. The Hawk P-36A has the dubious distinction of fighting on both sides and for more countries than any other plane in history during the opening years of WWII. This Hawk, one in a long progression of famous fighter aircraft, was the winner of a 1935 competition. The USAA Corps received the first aircraft in April of 1938 and the French ordered 100 aircraft in May of the same year. French Hawks shot down just over 30 German planes during the battle for France. The Germans captured the aircraft and sold them to Finland. Others were captured when the Germans overran Norway. In all over 800 Hawks were produced and served in China, Netherlands East Indies, Portugal, Great Britain, Thailand, Argentina and Peru. Although an excellent fighter in 1935, the Hawk was outclassed by the time the war started but when flown properly still gave a good account of itself.
