Aurora German Sea Raider Atlantis 'The Rattlesnake of the Ocean', 1/456, 710-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$765   

First issue. The hardbox is dated 1959 and has 'Famous Fighters' in the oval border of the logo, with 'Aurora' over the 'Northern Lights.' Dramatic Jo Kotula artwork. This is the only model ever made of the famous (or infamous) German WWII converted merchant raider which was the subject of several books and a major movie called 'Under Ten Flags'. The long WWII voyage was legendary, and the ship is well represented in this full hull model. Covers can be removed to reveal hidden guns, torpedo tubes and the Ar-196 float plane. The box has four solid corners, no repairs and 'very good' gloss and color - there is wear as shown, especially at the corners. The model has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Shipping insurance is required. From modeler Stephen Payne: Recommend that the builder or collector of this kit add the following books to their collection-The German Raider Atlantis by Captain Bernhard Rogge & Wolfgang Frank & Sea Raider Atlantis, Story of a German Surface Raider by Ulrich Mohr & A.V. Sellwood. The first book is by the ATLANTIS commander, Kapitan zur See Bernhard Rogge. He oversaw the transformation and outfitting in Bremen and captained the ship during her 602 day operational voyager which sank or captured 22 ships totaling 144,384 t (142,104 long tons). Rogge also was one of the few German officers of flag rank who was not arrested by the Allies after the war due to the way he had exercised his command of Atlantis. Captain J. Armstrong White, captain of the British CITY OF BAGHDAD, which Atlantis sank in July 1941, stated, "His treatment of prisoners left respect, instead of hatred."The second book is by the ATLANTIS First Officer, Ulrich Moher. Both books read much the same as the events related are the same, but it is interesting to see these events from the two perspectives. Captain White (see above) wrote the foreword to Atlantis, the Story of a German Surface Raider, written by U. Mohr & A. V. Sellwood.The German auxiliary cruiser Atlantis (HSK 2), known to the Kriegsmarine as Schiff 16 (SHIP 16) and to the Royal Navy as Raider-C, was a converted merchant vessel to German Hilfskreuzer (auxiliary cruiser) used for commerce raiding. Commerce raiders did not seek to engage warships, but rather attack enemy merchant shipping; the measures of success are tonnage destroyed (or captured) and time spent "at large" holding up enemy resources. Atlantis had the longest raiding career of any German commerce raider in either world war.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$225   

Fourth issue of the famous 1/48 F-90 Long Range Fighter. With the early and colorful 'Aurora Line' rectangular logo. Although not dated, the logo tells us this kit is from 1954/1955. Molded in gloss silver and clear, with landing gear and missiles and the modified rectangular 'Brooklyn' style two-piece stand. With the correct Tatem decals and instructions which are both in exceptional near mint condition. Even the original tissue paper is present. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. When Aurora issued it's first two plastic kits, they were copies of the Hawk Model Company's F9F and F-90 fighters. The first Aurora issue was in the rather plain and very rare flip-top one-piece box with the kit molded in gray with no landing gear and missiles from the Brooklyn factory. The second issue was also from Brooklyn and molded in gray with no landing gear or missiles but was in the new two-piece hardbox. The third official issue is the West Hempstead issue and is molded in silver with landing gear and missiles ('Brooklyn Gray' issues of this kit are confirmed to exist). This kit is the fourth issue.

Aurora Lockheed P-38 Lightning, 1/48, 99-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$125   

1959 issue with 'Famous Fighters' in the sunburst oval and dramatic Jo Kotula artwork. The box is in investment-grade 'near mint' condition with factory-fresh color and gloss, four solid corners, no tape, tape marks, price tags or tag marks, no fading and no litho loss. The only flaw is very light corner wear at the lower left. Molded in dark olive drab and clear with the famous Aurora 'Triangle Globe' clear base. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions and even the original tissue paper. The truly remarkable thing is that the decals are flat and in mint condition with absolutely no yellowing. The instructions are almost mint and have only the slightest yellowing - they are by far the 'whitest' copy I have ever seen.
