Airfix IL-2M3 Stormovik - T3 Logo Issue, 1/72, 293

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$24   

The legendary Stormovik gave the Germans nothing but trouble on the Eastern Front. Designed as a heavily armed single seat or dual seat attack aircraft, the Stormovik was very difficult to shoot down; even then if the pilot could crash land it, he had an excellent chance of walking away and flying again the next day. Il-2M3s endlessly attacked German forward and rear positions effectively and in large numbers till the end of the war. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Revell Stag Hound Clipper Ship, 1/216, H361

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$49   

Very nicely detailed like all early Revell sailing ships. Full hull kit with premolded ratlines, optional sails and extensive rigging instructions. The kit has never been started. The parts are all still in the internal factory sealed bag. Includes instructions and vacuform sails in 'excellent' condition. The Stag Hound was designed by the famous Donald McKay and was launched on December 7, 1850. She is famous for her great speed and turned a nice profit for her owners. The most notable event was when the Stag Hound was asked to take a copy of President Lincoln's inaugural address to London. During this run, she raced the steamer 'America' and won easily. Shortly after this she was lost off Brazil to a spontaneous combustion of her coal cargo. The crew successfully abandoned ship. The captain was the last to leave. He lowered the American Flag, wrapped it around himself and jumped overboard.

Aurora P-40 Warhawk Flying Tiger - Famous Fighters of All Nations, 1/48, 44A-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+++

$250   

Most likely the third issue. From the mid-1950s. Box is in investment grade condition. This is the short-lived issue with the small square 'Aurora Line' logo, unique (to this issue) artwork and 'Famous Fighters of All Nations' logo. Glue for plastic kits was not available in stores early on, so Aurora often included a small but colorful tube of Aurora Cement with the kits. This kit still has that sealed tube in mint condition. Molded in gloss olive drab and clear with one piece wings. Has original rectangular clear stand. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Aurora Sopwith Camel, 1/48, 102-79

There is no Parents' Magazine Seal and no '69' price circle on this issue. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

O-Lin Ryan Navion / North American Aviation NA-143, 1/48, 507

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

$165   

Very rare kit for the advanced collector. This is a very hard to fine original O-lin kit in the small box and advertisement for O-line cement on the top. Production first began in 1949 or just before. O-Lin (Olin) was founded by Paul Lindberg and a Mr. Olsen - hence the company name. Although a producer of flying models in the 1930s, O-lin produced some of the earliest American injection molded kits in the late 1940s. In 1950 the partnership may have ended, because all branding was changed to Lindberg and Paul Lindberg. Inside, the kit is as new. It is molded in high gloss ivory. I have seen many cases where Paul Lindberg used up the old O-Lin stock, combining different sets of instructions and decals resulting in odd combinations. While I admire his efficiency, it makes does make collecting these unique. This model has the O-Lin box, O-Lin instructions, O-Lin parts and the earliest 'Lindberg Products' decals dated 11/1952 on the back. The kit has never been started and is inventoried complete with all parts, instructions and decals. The Navion was originally produced by North American Aviation as a high performance sport plane, but they sold them to the US Air Force as well. North American sold the rights to Ryan, who continued to successfully produce the aircraft.

Aurora Convair F-102 Dart - (YF-102 Delta Dagger), 1/121, 290-29

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$45   

Hardbox issue dated 1957 but probably from the early 1960s since the oval Aurora logo does not have 'Famous Fighters' in the outline. The box is in excellent condition. Small scale kit with dramatic Jo Kotula box artwork. Nicely molded kit with clear canopy, full landing gear and display stand. This is a model of the very early YF-102 prototype with the straight (non-area rule) fuselage. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Around this time, Aurora issued a series of inexpensive (usually 29 cent) small scale kits that were designed to sell at almost any type of retail location. The line was successful and further expanded - when Aurora purchased the Comet molds, they fit in nicely with this established line.
