Hawk Mig-15, 1/48, 707

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

$125   

Very rare early injection molded kit. This kit is from 1952, so it was made at the same time that the Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' were released. Hawk was a producer of wooden kits ( with metal or plastic details) before and after WWII, and was one of the handful of manufacturers to produce such kits (known as 'solids') in a consistent 1/48 scale. Hawk made aircraft, ship and train models in this fashion. The very first injection molded aircraft kits in the United States may have been made by Varney in 1946, but Hawk was always an innovative and quality-driven company, and they took a gamble on injection molded kit well before they were popular. As early as 1946 they may have issued the 1/48 Curtiss R3C-1 with wheels and in 1948 the 'Evolution of the Jet' gift set. In 1949, they issued several kits - the Supermarine S6B, Gee-Bee, Howard Ike, F-84G and the Constellation. In 1952, the Mig-15 was released in 1/48. As with the previous kits, this is in the Hawk two-tone one-piece flip box. This model is molded in the correct glossy silver with a unique early stand. Molded in gloss silver and green-tinted clear. The box is in exceptional condition. The kit has never been started. The contents have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Comet Boeing 707 Stratotanker (367-80 - Dash 80), 1/125, PL800-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$110   

Comet originally began model production in 1929 with a line of balsa flying models. In the mid-1950s Comet made a beautiful line of small and medium scale aircraft and missile models with colorful boxes. The early issues were in one-piece 'flip-top' boxes, and the later issues and releases were in standard two-piece 'hardboxes' with a lithograph slick glued to the top box. In 1963 Comet sold the plastic kit molds to Aurora, who reissued some but not all of the kits. There were two Boeing 707 models made. This is the two-piece box larger scale (1/125) 'Stratotanker' - not really a tanker model at all, but a nice kit of the famous Dash-80 Prototype Tanker/707, which lead to the world's first commercially-successful airliner. Well molded with fine recessed panel lines, landing gear and prototype decals. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions in 'as new' condition.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$59   

Kit includes both models. Very nicely detailed. The Antoinette was the first plane in the world to attain an altitude of 500 feet, and the Voisin made the first city-to-city powered flight. These are unique and accurate kits. The original internal frame structure and details of the aircraft is built from injection molded plastic. When complete, it is covered with a very strong fabric which is included. The result is a very realistic aircraft. The kits have never been started. The Antoinette has been inventoried 100% complete and the Farman is missing #13 (lower pilot's tub) and is otherwise complete. Includes covering material, Testors covering glue (which is evaporated) and instructions.

Aurora SE-5 Scout, 1/48, 103-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$36   

First issue from 1956 with Northern Lights logo. This logo only appeared for one year. In 1957 it was replaced with the famous oval 'Famous Fighters' Sunburst logo. The artwork is by Jim Cox. This kit was one of a very famous line of 1/48 scale WWI aircraft kits introduced by Aurora at this time. Due to the popularity, subjects were still being released into the 1960s.

Aurora Boeing F4B-4 - (F4B4), 1/48, 122-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$45   

1958 first issue with fantastic Jo Kotula boxart. This is the Parents' Magazine issue with the seal located in the lower right. In the day this was considered a fine kit and rated highly in reviews. Classic 1930s Navy Biplane Fighter that is still famous for their colorful paint jobs at that that time. Cowl, tail and trim color would vary with the group's Aircraft Carrier (Ranger, Lexington or Saratoga and the aircraft's position in the flight formation. NOTE: has minor assembly. The seat and floor have been neatly glued to the cockpit. Quality of assembly is professional. There is no other assembly and zero painting. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Aurora Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina, 1/74, 374-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$135   

First issue artwork from the early 1950s. Rare. Kit features retracting pontoons and rotating props. Includes correct early logo instructions which show the clear 'Triangle World' stand. That stand is correctly included. This must be one of the first instances of the 'Triangle' stand being used as it is normally associated with oval 'Famous Fighter' logo kits. Molded in gloss silver/gray and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: the back half of the pitot tube has broken off and is missing. Only the front part is present. It is interesting to note that the early Aurora PBY issue has at least three small variations to the box top. The very first issue says '1/4 SCALE MODEL' at the top right. Clearly, this kit is not 1/48 scale and someone corrected Aurora. Then the '1/4' was blotted out with a dark blue oval or cicle and '5/32' was added after the word 'SCALE.' it was now correct, but the appearance was not completely professional. On the next box order, they kept the '1/4' blotted out but added a proper looking 5/31" in front of the blot. That is this issue.

Aurora De Havilland Tiger Moth, 1/48, 110-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG

$75   

Still factory sealed but the seal has split on the bottom and left, and the box has damage as shown on the left. First issue dated 1958 with brilliant Jo Kotula box artwork. This was a very nice kit for that time.

Aurora Curtiss Warhawk P-40 Flying Tiger 'Train' Artwork, 1/48, 44-59

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$150   

Very rare. Jim Cox did a few different box art versions of the P-40 for Aurora, and this one is by far the rarest. The box is 100% complete but has serious damage to the top in the form of litho and cardboard tears; for this reason I have grade the box 'fair.' The box topsides and bottom tray are 'very good' to 'excellent.' Inside, the kit is 100% correct. The model has the early one-piece wings, landing gear and bombs for this issue. The clear stand has the rectangle base, and the decals are by Tatem and have no stand decal (that would come later with the new Triangle stand). The instructions have the early WH logo. Decals and instructions are excellent. Molded in gloss olive drab and clear. Never started and complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Aurora Grumman F4F Wildcat, 1/65, 497-70

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$45   

Second issue - Sunburst oval logo does not have Famous Fighters' in the border. Dated 1962 but is from the mid 1960s. Molded in dark blue and clear. Never started. Inventoried with all parts, decals and instructions present.

Aurora North American F-107 Fighter Bomber, 1/114, 295-29

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

$80   

Dated 1958 with Jo Kotula box art; this issue is likely from the early to mid 1960s as there is no 'Famous Fighters' in the logo boarder. The box is in fantastic condition with like-new color and gloss, four solid corners, no fading or price tags and the only tape marks are from the factory sealing tape. Molded in silver and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora Russian Mig-19, 1/48, 66-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$179   

Dated 1958 with fantastic Jo Kotula artwork; but the lack of 'Famous Fighters' in the oval boarder logo means that it is closer to the early 1960s. The box is in amazing 'near mint' investment-grade condition with factory-new color and gloss, four solid corners, no creases, price tags or fading and no tape or even tape marks. Molded in a wonderful gloss dark green and clear. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Instructions and decals are 'excellent' and even the original factory tissue packing paper is present.
