They also included the rubber band, spring wire landing gear and injection molded wheels, propeller and bushing. The kit has never been started.

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

$155   

1954 first issue pre-'S' hardbox in excellent condtion. Classic artwork by Richard Kishady. This kit is the true first issue which was released with the one-piece 'Revelving' stand arm.

Molded in correct high-gloss white plastic and clear plastic. Kit features optional position landing gear and cockpit hatch, boarding ladder and pilot in the boxart pose. Never started. Inside the kit is as new with all the small parts still sealed in the factory 'crinkle' bag. All other parts have been inventoried complete with decals and instructions in like-new condition.

Aurora Convair 990 Jet Mainliner United Air Lines, 1/107, 397-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$1299   

Very rare kit from 1962. First and only issue. This is the largest injection molded kit ever made of the very fast Convair 990 airliner. The box has as-new color and sheen with four solid corners and no repairs. There are no price tags, tape or price tag/tape marks. The only flaw is light edge wear. The model is molded in the correct white and clear plastic, with the large clear triangle display stand and full color United decals. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried 100% complete including all parts, decals and instructions. Decals and instructions are both flat with slight yellowing being the only flaw. NOTE: shipping insurance is required with this kit. The Convair 990 and its near sister 880 were very high performance airliners. Unfortunately they did not find favor with commercial operators. The commercial failure of the 990 caused Aurora to pull these molds from production shortly after the introduction of the kit. The 990 was a larger and faster (Mach .91) airliner than the 880, 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 for decades after the last one was phased out of commercial service. 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.

Airfix Vanguard Turbo-Prop Airliner Trans-Canada - Craftmaster Issue, 1/144, 4-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$125   

Rare 1960s issue with very colorful Trans-Canada decals. This was an excellent kit for the time with rotating wheels and props, clear windows for the cabin and cockpit, full landing gear, optional position cabin doors and two boarding stairs with railings. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The decals appear in outstanding 'near mint' condition. The British were very quick to design and build successful turbo (jet) prop airliners after the war. The turboprops had superior speed, range and fuel economy. The Vanguard was one of several excellent designs. She cruised at 425 MPH with a full passenger load and 7 to 8 tons of cargo below the cabin.

StromBecker American Airlines Convair Flagship - 10 Inch Wingspan Solid Wood Kit, C-38

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$125
