Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$145   

1957 original 'S' issue with the fantastic box art that has made these kits so famous and collectible. The hardbox is in near mint condition and has remarkable as-new gloss and color.

Nicely molded kit features optional position cargo door, refueling boom, optional position landing gear and a moving rudder. Molded in the correct gloss silver and with the clear Revell 'Globe' Swivel Display Stand. Never started. 100% inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions present.

Hawk Grumman F7F -2N Tigercat, 1/48, 101

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$49   

From 1945. Rare kit for the advanced collector. This issue is in a very 'fancy' box for solid model kits from this time. It is a hardbox with a litho 'slick' showing a nice illustration of the aircraft. The model contains a 3D carved and tapered wooden main fuselage, two fully finished hardwood engine nacelles, two 3D carved and tapered rear nacelles/wheel housings, nicely 2D cut wings, rudder and elevator, two metal seats for the interior, wood stock, clear vacuform canopy in excellent condition, two plastic propellers, pre-carved wheels, color decals, large and complete cardboard template set and full-size, well-detailed plans with full instructions. Even includes sandpaper and a special metal display stand. The model has not been started and is 100% complete. Hawk was one of the few manufacturers making wooden kits to a constant scale of 1/48 in the 1930s. Hawk kits were very complete and included metal details and superb quality drawings for the true scale enthusiast.

ITC Dornier Do-X Flying Boat - (DoX), 1/156, 3721

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$65   

Famous German Flying Boat of the 1930s. Dornier dreamed that this huge aircraft would become a trans-oceanic airliner. Passenger traveled in ocean-liner like luxury. A tour of South and North American was conducted, but orders never materialized due to excessive fuel consumption and a lack of power. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes 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.

Lindberg Cadet - Rubber Powered Plastic Flying Airplane Model, 925-100

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$125   

Very rare. Fantastic artwork by Ray Gaedke. The box is in exceptional near mint condition. In the late 1950s/early 1960s, Lindberg came out with a complete line of vacuformed rubber powered flying models. The kits were all prepainted, had large wingspans and were quite attractive for flying models. They also included the rubber band, spring wire landing gear and injection molded wheels, propeller and bushing. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including instructions, which are on the back along with an adjustment guide for flying.

Roundhouse-Model Die Casting 21' Hopper Mine Ore Car Great Northern - Metal HO Craftsman Kit with Sprung Metal Trucks, 1/87, H100

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$32   

Includes working sprung metal trucks. Roundhouse (by Model Die Casting) was a famous manufacture of HO Craftsman kits in the 1940s/1950s. This is one of their all- metal car kits. Very well detailed and crisply cast with little or no flash. Molded in details are superb. Features all metal one piece floor, car ends, one piece hopper, factory painted and lettered sides for GN, brake set, couplers, pocket doors, bushings, screws as needed, full instructions with drawings and more. The prepainted sides are as new and were only removed to take this photograph. The car ends, hopper and floor are very straight for easy assembly. They are not warped, as is common with some all metal kits. The kit has never been started. Many parts are still factory sealed - those that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including instructions.

Guillows Piper Super Cub 95 - 24 inch Wingspan for Free Flight or R/C Conversion, 303

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$22   

Dated 1961, but likely mid 1960s due to the zip code on the box. Large-scale, well detailed kit that can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using modern servos and receivers. Features quality balsa die-cut parts and strip wood, die-cut plywood firewall, scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform cowl, excellent full color decals, colored tissue and excellent full size plans. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Guillow's founder, Paul K. Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.

Aircraft Douglas SBD Dauntless, 1/48, H-8

Never started and complete, even include factory packing tissue paper. This model is rare in that it is from Gordon Christoph's Aircraft Model Company. This company was founded in the early 1930s. Jack Mair, a former Comet Model Airplane & Supply Co. salesman bought the company in the early 1940s and renamed it Maircraft. Mair continued with the same logo and 1/48 scale and went on to make one of the rarest and valuable 1/48 scale wooden kits ever - the Maircraft DC-3. The company went out of business just as production began on the DC-3, which was in 1947.
