Aurora 155mm Long Tom Gun, 1/48, 308-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$55   

Very rare version. Of all the Aurora SE-5, this one turns up the least. The hardbox is dated 1956 but shows the original Jim Cox box art with the 1957 oval 'Famous Fighters' logo. The original rectangle 'Northern Lights' logo has been neatly blotted out with a yellow rectangle of the same size. The fact that the price is still 69 cents (as the original issue) means this issue is very early 1957 and predated the 'yellow' box art issue. Molded in gloss olive green and black. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Dated 1957 with classic Jo Kotula artwork. This is the first issue of this kit - please note 69 cent price extension and 'Famous Fighters' in the sunburst logo. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. This is part of the famous Aurora WWI series of 1/48 scale aircraft. The series began in 1956 and Aurora added new kits into the early 1960s. The line proved incredibly popular, so these kits were included in the 'mold upgrade' in the 1970s before Aurora went out of business.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$79   

First issue from 1959 with fantastic Jo Kotula artwork, FF logo and Parents' Magazine Seal on the lower right. Please note that this box exists in two versions; one with the PM seal at the extreme lower right and one with it an inch or so to the left. A nice kit of the dreaded 'Flying Razor' of WWI. The D-VIII had what it took to turn the tide in the air, but was introduced too late and in too few numbers to make a significant difference. Kit has never been started.
