Monogram F-51D (P-51D) Mustang with Retracing Gear and Dropping Bombs - Blue Box Issue, 1/32, PA77-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+++

Still factory sealed. Classic large-scale 'Action Model' in it's 1966 issue in the famous 'Blue Box'. Most likely the second issue of this kit. Very well molded kit with excellent detail and numerous action features. Canopy opens and closes to show highly detailed cockpit. Tiny levers under the wings drop two bombs. Knob on the bottom rotates and extends/retracts main gear and tail wheel; all gear doors including tail wheel open and close automatically with the gear. Not only do these features sound great, but they work. My built kit was made in 1979 and functions like new!

Monogram British SE-5A - (Ex-Aurora) - Young Model Builders Issue - Bagged, 1/48, 6950

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$24   

Still in the factory sealed bag and includes the color print. This is the YMB Club issue of the Monogram 1979 reissue from Aurora molds. When Monogram bought the Aurora molds in the mid 1970s, they reissued the kits that were the most accurate. Since Aurora had reworked the molds on the SE5 and greatly improved the kit, it was one that was chosen. Builds a very nice model.

Monogram Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet - Pan Am Airlines (ex-Aurora Modified Molds), 1/156, 5412

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$49   

1978 issue after Monogram bought Aurora's molds. Monogram only reissued the best and most commercially viable models. The Jumbo fell into that category but only after Monogram highly modified it for accuracy. The result is one of the better early 747-100 kits kit in (very near) 1/144 scale. First, Monogram did a massive fix on the fuselage where the wing mates to it. This may have resulted in a completely new mold for the fuselage! They made the fuselage smooth - no windows. Next were added very, very fine raised panel lines to all surfaces, some recessed panel lines (like leading edge slats) and also added flap hinge covers (fairings) to the lower wings. Contains greatly improved, full, excellent Pan Am and window decals. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Monogram Phantom Mustang F-51D (P-51) See-Thru Working Model, 1/32, PA67-498

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$225   

First issue of this all-time classic. Hardbox is dated 1961 and in unusually good condition with no split corners, very good color and gloss, no tape or price tags, no marks from tape or tags and no litho tears. Flaws include general wear and creases as shown as well as sun fading to the end panels and slight bit at the lower left top. Widely considered to be one of the best visible airplane action kits ever made. Features a full cut away model with interior detail. Buttons on the base activate two motors that make the prop spin, and the main gear and tail wheel retract and extend. Two other levers on the base drop the wing bombs. Inside, this kit is as it left the factory. All of the special presentation cardboard is as new and the two motors are still sealed. Molded in the correct first edition shades of clear, red, black, silver and zinc chromate green. It has never been started and is inventoried complete with all parts present. Instructions and decals are correct for the first issue and feature the 'Horse' stand decal. NOTE: decals are intact but have visible age cracking. Please read the two articles (on this website) about saving and restoring old decals. Insurance is required with this kit.
