UPC Fairey Barracuda - (ex Frog), 1/72, 5086-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$19   

From quality ex-Frog molds. Nicely molded with fine panel line detail and no rivets. Features separately molded ailerons, elevators, rudder, crew of two and torpedo loadout. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. UPC stood for Universal Powermaster Corporation which was based out of New York City, NY. UPC did not cut their own molds, but bought kits already molded from other manufacturers and re-boxed the kits in the USA. Scott Eidson, the famous artist best known for his artwork with Revell, also did UPC box art in the 1960s. All UPC production ended in the 1970s.

Aurora Sopwith Camel, 1/48, 102-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$69   

Just when I think all the issues have surfaced for an Aurora kit, another one shows up! This is a 120-69 (same number as the first issue) 'Famous Fighters' oval logo with the '69' price circle and the Parents' Magazine seal. That makes this the second issue - it would have been put out in early 1957, with the very first re-imaging to the new logo. It also shows that the Parents' seal was used as early as 1957 on some kits. The box artist on this issue is Jim Cox, the first model box artist for Aurora. (Please read the article about Mr. Cox on this website) This kit is part of a very successful WWI aircraft line in 1/48 scale that Aurora introduced in '56. The line sold so well that kits were added to it into the 1960s. Molded in the glossy olive drab green and black. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

La Belle D&RG Alamosa Business Car HOn3 Narrow Gauge - Craftsman Model, 1/87, HOn3-24

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$36   

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 passenger equipment. The kit features die cut hardwood parts (no balsa) such as pre-cut and scribed sides with all windows factory cut, car ends done in the same fashion, carved clerestory roof, tinted clear clerestory window material, working end diaphragms, excellent underside and cast metal details, building instructions and plans. I have seen these models built and they look identical to the real prototypes. The kit has not been started and is complete with all small parts still factory sealed, the larger ones inventoried complete with instructions.

Frog HS Buccaneer S.Mk 2A / S.Mk 50 - RAF or South African Airforce, 1/72, F238

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$34   

Still factory sealed. Has decals for both Air Forces, No.12 Sq RAF Honington, 1970 and No. 24 Sq SAAF Waterkfloof, 1970. Typical high quality Frog kit with no rivets and fine panel lines for a realistic model. Features steering nose strut, four anti-ship missiles on wing pylons and optional position landing gear. The Buccaneer was the world's first purpose designed low level 'below the radar' bomber. Low level strike aircraft have a shorter airframe life limit due to the stresses of low level flying, so the Buccaneer was designed to be very strong and even had many sub-assemblies milled from solid metal. Kit features opening unique rotating bomb bay, folding wings and working arresting hook.
