Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$45   

Rare 'green' box art issue from the late 1950s. Fantastic artwork is by Ray Gaedke, who painted both of the Skyray issues for Lindberg. Kit features fine raised details, moving rudder and wing control surfaces, complete jet engine and opening inspection cover, pilot, two drop tanks, underwing rockets and a clear display stand.

Lindberg is a company with a fascinating history The original 'Lindberg Line' stretches back to the 1930s when Paul Lindberg drew plans for famous modeling magazines and marketed his balsa wood 'stick and tissue' by urging dealers to carry the '...Complete Lindberg Line'. After the war, Lindberg and Olsen had a strong hand in early United States injection molded kit development. Please see the article located on this website about early USA plastic kit manufactures.

Revell F-89D Scorpion 'S' Issue, 1/80, H221-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$95   

1955 'S' first issue with the fantastic box art that has made these kits so popular today. Very well molded for that time in silver and clear plastic.

Revell DC-7 Flagship American Airlines One-Piece Stand Arm Pre -S Issue, 1/122, H219-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

$210   

Rare 1954/55 Pre-S true issue with the fantastic artwork of a DC-7 at the moment just before touchdown. Please note, this is the correct first release with the one-piece plastic stand arm and instructions that illustrate this. Also, the main gear axles are separate parts on this issue. On the second issues the gear struts were modified and the axles were moved to the wheels, and the stand arm was changed to two plastic parts because the one-piece stand arm was fragile and in use it broke easily. Very few were made as Revell quickly corrected this weakness. Correctly molded in gloss silver and clear and a large, colorful decal sheet. Inside, the kit has never been started. I has been inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Instructions are 'near mint' with the detailed American Airlines route map on the back. Decals are 'excellent' and flat with no curl and light yellowing.

Revell F9F-8 Cougar Pre 'S' Kit - (F9F8), 1/52, H212-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$95   

1954 Pre-S issue of this kit. This is the second issue in a two-piece hardbox. The first issue was in the simple one-piece box and Revell quickly learned converted to this two-piece box as it was much more durable and a full-color lithographed 'slick' could be used. For this issue Revell added rivet and very fine raised panel line detail as well as landing gear and the famous clear Revell 'Globe' stand. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the box displays very nice, but it is only graded 'very good++' because there is a tape tear from the factory sealing tape on the lower long side. The rectangular tear measures .75 x .85 inches.

Aurora Boeing KC-135 Jet Stratotanker, 1/125, 143-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$59   

Dated 1963 and from ex-Comet molds. This is the largest of the two Comet molds and has cockpit and cabin clear windows and full landing gear. Molded in gloss gray and clear. This model was given a clear Aurora two piece 'triangle world' stand, unlike many of the other Comet kits which only had a modified version of their original stands included. Of course this is not the production KC-135 but a model of the Boeing prototype with USAF decals. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the cockpit windshield is broken neatly on the center frame line. The break is perfectly clean and an easy fix since it is in the frame section and not across a windshield panel.

Aurora Piper Aztec C, 1/72, 282-70

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$149   

1968 issue and still the only injection molded Aztec kit. After Aurora purchased the Comet molds, they reissued the Comet civil light aircraft line. It appears that Aurora may have been inspired by the Comet kits or sales of the reissues, and they produced several more new molds to add to the line. This Aztec is one of those kits. Since the kit was designed new, it has significantly more detail than the older Comet kits. Features all recessed panel lines, full interior with a sofa, four seats and instrument panel, optional position landing gear and rotating propellers. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.

Aurora North American B-70 Valkyrie Bomber (XB-70A), 1/105, 370-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$145

Email for availability.

First issue hardbox from 1962. This box has, in my opinion, some of the best Jack Leynnwood box art. Jack primarily did Revell artwork, but since he was freelance, he did others as well. At this point, the XB-70 was planned for production, so the kit is called the B-70 and the artwork shows a winter night-time quick turn around of a SAC B-70 while another Valkyrie roars overhead after takeoff. The box is in excellent condition with very little wear, four solid corners, no repairs, stains,price tag or tape/tape marks. Very large kit with 6 detailed General Electric J93-3 engines, landing gear and clear canopy. Molded in ivory white and clear plastic. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the box displays better than the 'good-' grade. It is graded as such as there is heavy wear on the right short side panel and the right side of the bottom long side panel.

Aurora Sopwith Camel, 1/48, 102-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$49   

Still factory sealed. This is the 4th known issue of this classic kit, and the second one to share the 102-100 kit number. The blue oval logo dates from the early 1960s. This is only the second box artwork used for this kit, and John Steel replaced Cox for the 'new look' from Aurora. 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.
