Aurora Grumman F9F Panther Jet, 1/49, 22-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Mint

$79   

Investment-grade condition box and kit. Dated 1960. This is actually a newer kit, likely from 1962-64 as it lacks the 'Famous Fighters' logo in the oval border. These molds are from one of Aurora's first two kits - the F9F and F-90. Aurora simply went out and purchased the early Hawk F9F and F-90 kits and copied them almost exactly. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Instructions and decals are in exceptional NM condition.

Revell A3J (A-5A) Vigilante Bomber - 'S' Issue, 1/83, H196-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$179   

This was the last "S" kit issued by Revell. Hardbox is dated 1959 and has fantastic gloss and color. All four corners are solid and original. There are no price tags and no tape beyond the short pieces of factory tape on the long sides which attached the box top and bottom together. The box would be mint but it has two creases from the right corners as shown. Kit features opening tandem canopies, moving control surfaces, detailed, removable jet engines and two pilots. As the last "S" kit, this kit also incorporated a critical improvement for the time that would become standard only recently: all recessed detail. The entire kit has recessed panel lines and rivet detail-no raised marks. It has an attention to detail that is lacking in many older Pre-S and S kits. Molded in the correct gloss light gray and clear with the "Globe" clear stand. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Decals and instructions are flat and 'excellent.'

Glencoe SS France (SS Norway) Ocean Liner - (ex-ITC / Ideal), 1/450, 09302

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$115   

This is the only large injection molded kit of this famous ship. Measures over 24 inches long when assembled. Older but very nice kit from ex-ITC molds. Features a one piece hull, detailed deck fittings, booms, cranes and superstructure, life boats, hull rudder, propeller and stabilizer detail, rigging instructions, flags and decals. Could be converted into the Norway if you wish, but you will have to do your own research for the changes and proper paint scheme. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Tamiya Bristol Beaufighter Mk.VI, 1/48, 61053-2800

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$34   

Very highly detailed. Features all fine recessed panel lines, detailed cockpit and crew station, two crew members, detailed engines, optional position canopy and more. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Monogram Air Force Patrol - B-66 Skywarrior (A-3A) / C-47 Skytrain / SA-16B Albatross Gift Set, MGP7-349

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM++

$850   

Very rare. Monogram did not issue many gift sets. To make matters more interesting, the ones they issued were very short lived. Many were simply sets of models in sleeves with no dedicated boxes. By 1960, the Monogram Gift sets were no more. This gift set, the Air Force patrol, is interesting because it's not just a sleeve; it has a dedicated box designed for this gift set. It is the one and only issue, dated 1957. The condition is investment grade; the box has no more wear than when it was removed from the shipping carton. The colors and gloss are as new with minor edge wear as the only flaw. Inside, the three kits are still individually factory sealed, including the tube of Monoglue. Also includes the original "Monogram Model Merry Christmas" box wrapper, also in fantastic condition - these seldom survived the opening of the kit. Overall, a hard-to-find kit in factory new condition.

Heller Etendard IV, 1/50, 302-250

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG-

$38   

USA Heller Buzco issue. Large scale, Etendard IV that was nicely molded for that time; probably originally from the very early 1960s. This model probably represents the prototype aircraft.

Includes drop tanks and underwing weapons as well. This is the second issue of the very rare 'operating kit' of the Etendard IV. All of these Buzco issues come with the 1st issue instructions showing even more operating features, but those parts and the pilot/helmet were never included. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
