Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

AMT 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Two Door Hardtop 3in 1, 1/25, T157-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG++

$110   

Still factory tape sealed. Very rare in this condition. This is a one owner kit purchased new on 9/6/65 at Mr. Wiggs in Lexington, KY. One piece of factory tape is intact, the other one fell off while going through the kits. As you know, it is impossible to open this box (because of the height and width) without breaking both pieces of tape. Early issue from the late 1950s or early 1960s. Excellent kit with detailed engine and compartment, opening hood, full interior, opening doors, optional supercharged engine version, detailed suspension and a very large number of custom parts.

Aurora Hiller Hornet Ram-Jet Helicopter, 1/48, 501-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$650   

Very rare. Although dated 1956, this is the artwork copyright date only. This issue sports the oval logo with the sunburst but no "Famous Fighters" so this hardbox probably dates roughly 1960 and the last issue for this model. This is from the old Helicopters for Industry molds that Aurora acquired in the mid 1950s. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

First release 1953 hardbox pre 'S' kit. This is the first ship that Revell cut the molds for. Earlier Revell ship releases were Ex-Gowland and Gowland molds for the small scale sailing ship series. Although the box is graded VG (very good), it has excellent color and little wear. Inside the kit is 100% correct. The plastic is the high gloss medium gray. All small parts are still sealed in the factory cello bag and the original flag sheet is included. The instructions are the correct 'large' release for the first issue. Never started. 100% inventoried complete with all parts and instructions present.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$22   

Some molds have a colorful history; this one is no exception. At one point, Monogram leased or sold a set of Corsair molds (from the original 4 Star action kit) to Idea in Korea.

This kit even includes dark navy blue and black parts just like the original Monogram Four Star release. 'Working Action Model' with many features; wings fold, landing gear and tail wheel retract and all gear doors close, working arresting gear and rotating wheels and prop. Under-wing stores feature missiles, bombs and drop tanks. Includes decals for Marine version. The kit has never been started.

AMT 1967 Pontiac GTO 2 Door Hardtop Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$215   

Very rare and in amazing condition. All original, one owner promo obtained new in 1967 by a discriminating collector. Features brilliant deep red color and red-line tires. Color and gloss are like new, as is the chrome, clear and tires. Complete with all parts. Although I can't imagine how it could be better, I'll grade it 9.8 out of 10 as I hesitate to call anything perfect. The box is old and of the original style but it is not stamped on the end like the factory did; for that reason I presume it is not original to the model.

Cleanly molded and very highly detailed kit.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$16   

1970s large one-piece box issue. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Lindberg is a company with a fascinating history The original 'Lindberg Line' stretches back to the 1930s when Paul Lindberg drew plans for famous modeling magazines and marketed his balsa wood 'stick and tissue' by urging dealers to carry the '...Complete Lindberg Line'. After the war, Lindberg and Olsen had a strong hand in early United States injection molded kit development. Please see the article located on this website about early USA plastic kit manufacturers.

Aurora Lockheed F-90 Brooklyn - Famous Fighters Of All Nations, 1/48, 33-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$275   

Very rare and correct Brooklyn hardbox issue. This is the second issue of this kit - the first was in a rather plain flip-top box. The box is very good with typical wear as shown and all four corners are solid. Inside, the kit is 100% correct for this issue. It is molded in gray and does not have landing gear or missiles. Decals and instructions are correct as well as the early clear rectangular stand. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. When Aurora issued it's first two plastic kits, they were copies of the Hawk Model Company's F9F and F-90 fighters. Reportedly, Hawk was not happy about this and there were some words exchanged at some hobby trade shows. Hawk attempted to hide it's name - one example was using rivets to spell H-A-W-K in morse code to prevent further use of it's designs. Fortunately, the incident was not repeated.

Comet F-51 Mustang Struct-O-Speed Prefabricated Flying Aircraft - (P-51), 2304-100

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$22   

Purchased new on January 14, 1972. Comet would advertise that the Struct-O-Speed series 'Puts Itself Together...That Quick!' on the box top, and it was not a completely idle boast. These kits were very highly prefabricated for their time, and in comparison to the regular stick and tissue models, the claim is not unfounded. Kit features die cut and factory painted balsa wood parts, clear vacuform canopy, formed and finished wheels, plastic prop & thrust button, rubber motor, color insignia and detailed instructions with flying tips. Never started and inventoried complete. Has a 13" wingspan when assembled. Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.
