Aurora Bell AH-1G Huey Cobra - Assault Helicopter, 1/72, 501-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$135   

Still factory sealed and in investment-grade condition. First issue hardbox dated 1967. In the late 1960s Aurora realized that the older molds were out of date and modelers were demanding more realism. They made a new set of molds for ships, airplanes and helicopters. These were significant improvements as the new molds were on par with current offerings. This Cobra kit is one of the improved new mold kits.

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.

Precise Sparrow II Missile (CF-105 Arrow) Douglas Bendix

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$750   

This was the intended weapons system for the Canadian Arrow Interceptor program. Major problems prevented the Sparrow II from operational service and played a small roll in the demise of the Arrow. Other systems were more expensive or less effective. The AWG-9 was offered, but was too costly. The Falcon was offered, but was not adequate. Thus the beautiful aircraft without a weapon came to be canceled. This very rare display model was made by Precise as a promotional item for Douglas and Bendix (the two main contractors). The missile is 6.5 inches long as is the clear base. It comes in it's original shipping box with a two-sided information card on the missile. Condition is mint - it has only been taken out of the box twice. Base upright reads 'Douglas Bendix Sparrow II'. No touch ups/repairs or cracks. Insurance required on shipping.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$250   

Very rare Revell Japan Takara large 1/32 scale 'George'. It is rumored that these molds were lost when the freighter carrying them sank in the Sea of Japan. Other molds lost on that ship were the 1/32 Oscar, Tony and Raiden (Jack). The parts are molded in the correct medium gray and clear for this issue. The kit features very fine panel lines, highly detailed cockpit and engine, removable cowling and optional position canopy, working flaps and drop tank/bomb load.

Inside the model has never been started. All the parts are still in the factory sealed bags. Instructions and decals are as new. Shipping insurance is required for this model. Please note that the box would grade much higher, but there is clear tape on the lower end of all four box top sides.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

$120   

First issue 1955 'S' issue. It is easy to see how this era of Revell box artwork is considered the peak of box art.

Box has like-new color and gloss, four solid corners, no tape or tag marks (not even factory tape).
