Hasegawa Lockheed T-33A Shooting Star - JSDF, 1/72, JS038-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$22   

Rare first logo issue. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Airmodel Grumman AF-2W or AF-2S Guardian - Bagged, 1/72, 165

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$18   

Well molded basic vac kit with all recessed panel lines, clear canopy and instructions. Never started and complete. A certain degree of modeling skill is required to build vacuform kits. They are not recommended for beginners.

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$35   

Vac kit molded large (1/32) P-39 with recessed detail.

Aurora P-40 Warhawk Flying Tiger - Famous Fighters of All Nations, 1/48, 44A-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+++

$250   

Most likely the third issue. From the mid-1950s. Box is in investment grade condition. This is the short-lived issue with the small square 'Aurora Line' logo, unique (to this issue) artwork and 'Famous Fighters of All Nations' logo. Glue for plastic kits was not available in stores early on, so Aurora often included a small but colorful tube of Aurora Cement with the kits. This kit still has that sealed tube in mint condition. Molded in gloss olive drab and clear with one piece wings. Has original rectangular clear stand. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Aurora Messerschmitt Me-109 (Bf-109) - Blue Short Box Ends- Famous Fighters of All Nations, 1/48, 55A-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM-

$325   

I believe this is the 4th edition of this kit, and the first issue with this Jim Cox boxart. Dates from mid 1955 with small 'Aurora Line' rectangular logo and 'Famous Fighters of All Nations'. It is interesting that this issue did not carry the standard Aurora 'Northern Lights' logo for 1956 - perhaps it was designed at the end of 1955 and simply left that way. Correctly molded in metallic burgundy and clear with the correct rectangular clear stand. For this issue the factory changed the swastikas on the tail to iron crosses and decals as well. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora Lightning P-38 - Famous Fighters of All Nations, 1/48, 99-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$125   

Rare. Third issue with rectangular 'Aurora Line' logo and Famous Fighters of All Nations. Molded in correct gloss medium blue plastic and clear with rectangular clear stand. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. NOTE: decal were previously stuck to the instructions in several small areas. The damage is to the backing paper - the actual transfers are 'excellent.'

Palmer Naval 24 Pounder Cannon Brass Plated, 1/24, 27-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$45   

Large scale kit. Has brass plated barrel and fittings and metal chain. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Palmer made a range of five field gun kits which included the Gatling Gun, Civil War Field Piece, Revolutionary War Cannon, Naval Cannon and 75mm World War I Artillery Piece. The original issues contained brass plated parts and chain or rope as necessary. The economy line was issued without brass plating or chain. Finally, there was a deluxe series that included extra parts such as limbers, carriers and caisson. Life-Like eventually purchased the molds and reissued the line in the mid to late 1970s, and Encore reissued some of them in 1993.

Aurora Boeing B-29 Superfortress, 1/76, 372-259

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$225   

Rare 1956 issue with the square 'Northern Lights' logo and arguably the most dramatic and fanciful B-29 artwork from the "Golden Era" of modeling. This is the second issue of this kit. The box is in exceptional condition with brilliant colors and gloss. There are no split corner and no repairs. Light edge wear as the only flaw. Responding to market sources that boys wanted larger kits, Aurora introduced the B-26 followed by the B-29 and B-25, all of which sold well for many years. Never started and inventoried 100% complete with very high gloss silver parts, correct large 'Globe' two piece clear stand and correct decal sheet, mint condition instructions and even the original packing tissue paper.

Heller Pamir, 1/150, 80804

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+++

$225   

Still sealed. Very large and highly detailed kit with 738 parts. Measures 75cm (~30 inches) in length and 40cm (~16 inches) high when assembled. Full hull kit includes display stand, fantastic deck and fittings detail, railings, detailed masts with separate yards, billowing vac sails, full rigging supplies, numerous rigging diagrams and pin diagrams and full building instructions. The Pamir was bulit in 1905 at Blohm & Voss shipyards to become the 51st ship in the fleet of R.F. Laeisz of Hamberg ("The Flying P Line" was a reference to the starting letter of most of the ships names and the numerous records that they held). She was a four masted barque of 4425 tons with a crew of 33. She saw extensive trade service between the wars and served in both World Wars. After WWI she was given away as compensation; however her original owner bought her back in the 1920s. Before WWI she was sold to a Finnish cereal shipping fleet. Her beauty saved her from torpedoes from a Japanese Submarine - the Commander simply could not sink so wonderful a ship. In her 40th year of existence, the Pamir was bought with the Passat by a Dutch demolition crew. Yet at the last moment the West German merchant marine bought both ships to train cadets in the 1950s. The Pamir was lost in an Atlantic storm in 1957.

Heller La Reale De France - 17th Century Warship, 1/75, 6541

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$145   

Originally constructed to protect the southern coast of France, this galley-type warship is one of the most colorful ever built. The Reale de France was the flagship of the 17th Century French Navy and carried the commander's flag and the flag of King Louis XIV. Large and very highly detailed. Contains banners and flags as shown on the cover. Never started. All parts that came in factory sealed bags are still sealed - those parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete. With flags, rigging material and instructions.

Revell BB-38 USS Pennsylvania, 1/426, H422-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$155   

1961 Sea Power hardbox release. Rare kit of the Arizona's sister ship. The Pennsylvania was in dry-dock during the December 7th Pearl Harbor attack and survived with minimal damage. She was rebuilt and saw significant action in the Pacific in WWII, steaming over 150,000 miles from 1941 to 1945. It is thought that she may have fired more ammunition than any ship in history. She never once reported 'Not Ready' for any operation or need. After being used as a nuclear test ship at Bikini, she was towed to Kwajalein and sunk. Never started. Inventoried complete with all parts, decals, flag sheet and instructions.

Airfix Hawker Siddeley Buccaneer S.2B - RAF 208 Sq Lossiemouth 1988 or 12th Sq Lossiemouth 1985, 1/72, 03055

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$22   

From 1992 and has 78 parts. Features very fine raised panel lines, 'good' cockpit detail, optional drop tanks, Radar Martel, T.V. Martel and Sea Eagle missiles, two piece canopy and extensive paint guide and excellent decals for the two aircraft listed. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. 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.

Glencoe FROG 3 Missile and Carrier (Ex-ITC), 1/32, 07401

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$42   

Still factory sealed. From former ITC molds. Excellent builder kit.

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.

One of the most known names in early HO model railroading was Varney. This kit is from the unusual 1950s Varney streamlined passenger car line. The main car bodies are metal with lithographed color sides. The paint is in excellent condition and still has great gloss. The kit also includes ends, floor, bolsters, handrails, couplers and trucks. Never started and complete with instructions and all parts, most still sealed in small envelopes. These make great stand alone kit or as functional cars for your HO railway.
