Revell Boeing 707 Astrojet - American Airlines Jet Horizons Series, 1/140, H243

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Aurora Convair 880 SuperJet TWA, 1/103, 384-250

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

Sold   

SALE!! Dated 1961 and has the second issue logo, so this kit is likely from the mid 1960s. Rare near 1/100 scale kit molded in white and clear with recessed control surface and door lines. Features clear cockpit windshield, full landing gear and a large clear 'Triangle World' stand. The Convair 880 and its near-sister 990 were very high performance airliners. Unfortunately they did not find favor with commercial operators. Only 65 880s were produced from 1959 to 1962. The aircraft was designed to be smaller and faster than the DC-8 and 707 - this market did not develop, however, and if it did it could have been served with less expensive designs. The 990 was a larger and faster (mach .91) airliner, but it failed to meet it's range criteria for east to west crossings of the USA. As a result, only 37 were made. Interestingly enough, several 990s continued to be operated by private owners and NASA operated two 990s for decades after the last 990 was phased out of commercial service.

Comet Aero Commander 680, 1/81, PL-14-29

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Very rare. 1950s issue of the only injection-molded kit of the subject. Molded in white and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The Aero Commander was a state-of-the-art twin engine light transport in the early 1960s. It was built by Aero Design and Engineering Co. of Bethany, Oklahoma. It was the first twin engine aircraft to be used the President of the United States and was in Presidential service in the early 1960s. This high performance 5 to 7 place was popular with business travelers and had a range of 1,050 miles and a ceiling of 22,000 feet. The Aero Commander led to the Jet Commander, which became the IAI 1121 through 1124 Westwind Business Jet. Aero Commanders can still be seen at some airports in excellent condition, but many are neglected as newer aircraft are in favor.

Aurora Cessna 310, 1/62, 283-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

1963 issue from ex-Comet molds. True first Aurora issue with the 29 cent price extension. Neatly molded with all recessed panel lines, clear side and front windows, tip tanks, rotating propellers, display stand and full pinstripe decals. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Aurora had started a line of inexpensive 29 cent kits in about 1957. The line was a success, and it was expanded. The line grew again when Aurora purchased the Comet molds, as most of Comet's line was very small scale kits, many of them civil aircraft like this one. It appears that Aurora was encouraged by the sale of the ex-Comet civil aircraft, as it expanded the line with it's own molds in the early 1960s.

Aurora 1913 Mercer Raceabout - 'Old Timers' Issue, 1/16, 572-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

1961 first issue hardbox. Done in a big 1/16 scale, this kit and the other 'Old Timers' in the series represented a significant leap forward in quality for Aurora. The kit features full suspension, transaxle and driveline detail. It builds up a rolling chassis like the real car, and includes full exhaust and a detailed interior. Molded in gloss ivory, gloss black and with brass plated parts and real rubber tires. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts including instructions. Aurora was renowned for turning a profit and for keeping expenses down. In researching new kit subjects, they came upon a forgotten jewel - the Hudson Miniatures line of 1/16 scale wooden kits. Hudson had discontinued this line due to lack of wooden kit sales. But the Hudson models were second to none in quality, research and documentation. Aurora was quick to realize this and used the research and layout from these kits to create the subjects for this 'Old Timers' series. It is fortunate for us that they did, because in most cases this is the only injection molded kit of these rare and classic early automobiles.

Aurora Boeing P-26A Peashooter, 1/43, 115-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Unusual 'Big Box' issue. Please note that this box is significantly larger in length and width than the more common small box issue. other than size, the only difference is the small box has the Aurora logo on the box ends with a yellow background; on this box there is no yellow background. This issue may have come first, but that is only a guess. Regardless, it is from the early 1950s with old 'Aurora Line' rectangular logo. This kit was issued shortly after moving to the West Hempstead facility on Long Island. The side logos are the old Brooklyn style but with the new address in the lower bar. Molded in the correct glossy medium blue and clear with the early style rectangular stand, correct Tatem Company decals and the correct instructions. NOTE: the kit has minor assembly; the floor has been neatly glued to the seat support. Quality of construction is professional. There is no other assembly. NOTE: the interior cockpit pieces, engine and inside of the wheels pants have been neatly painted flat black. Quality of paint is 'excellent.' Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
