eBay: rare 72nd kits like PB4Y-2, Airfix Canberra BI.6, Mono Blue Angels, etc

FA: RARE Airfix 72nd CanberraB (I). 6. - Int'l OK The molds were permanently altered by Airfix to make later versions, and so this kit will NEVER be reissued!! This example has a
surprisingly nice sharp decal sheet, with no yellowing. The kit has better-than-average detail for an Airfix kit.

FA: RARE Matchbox 72nd PB4Y-2 Privateer - Int'l OK This is the ONLY injection-molded kit of the single-tail Privateer, and the kit has been long out of production. The decals are in wonderful shape, with no yellowing at all (and it is NOT stuck to the wax paper like on so many other Matchbox kits!). Markings are included for US Navy, French 1958 Algiers, and RCAF 1948 RY3 Liberator versions. The box is in fair shape only minor bowing and wear on the edges, and it has two tape marks on the front.

FA: RARE Monogram Blue Angels F11F-1 - Int'l OK This is a very rare kit of a formation of four US Navy Blue Angel F11F-1 Tigers, suspended on a clear plastic stand. Amazingly, these tiny jets (about 1/100th scale) actually have fine recessed panel lines must be one of the first Monogram kits to have them! The box is in good shape with one very minor tear, slight bowing, and it was taped on the bottom. The decals are old and yellowed, with some mildewing. But if you intend to build this, I expect that they would be usable (ask me for tips on salvaging old decals). <p> To view this auction (ending Sunday), cut and paste this into your browser: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item162307630&ssPageName ME:B:LC:US:1
<b><center> FA: RARE Monogram Blue Box Curtis F11C-2 Goshawk - Int'l OK </b></center> <hr> This is a MINT 72nd kit in the old Blue Box Monogram Curtis F11C-2 Goshawk. It's a wonderfully detailed little gem the engine detail in particular is amazing. These kits up very quickly and easily, and despite their age hold up quite well on your shelf next to new-tool Eduard and Roden kits. <p> To view this auction (ending Sunday), cut and paste this into your browser: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item162303821&ssPageName ME:B:LC:US:1
FA: OLD Airfix Hunter 72nd F.6 SEALED - Int'l OK The molds were permanently altered by Airfix to make the F.9, and so this kit will NEVER be reissued!! This old boxing is still sealed.

FA: OLD Renwal 72nd Fokker D.VII & Bristol F.2B - Int'l OK These are two very hard-to-find classic kits of the WWI fighters. Molding on both is very crisp with no flash at all. All the parts are there, including instructions and decals (which do not appear to be yellowed, despite the age of the kit). The D.VII also includes a clear plastic stand. Both boxes are in good shape - only flaw is that the tops were taped to the bottoms, so the leftover tape is still there.

FA: OOP Airfix 72nd Hannover CL 111a - Int'l OK This is an OOP mint kit of a very hard-to-find WWI biplane scout bomber. It's the one with the unusual biplane tail, designed to increase the rear gunner's field of fire. The kit and decals are in mint condition, and the parts are well-detailed with no flash.

FA: HTF Amodel 72nd Kamov Ka-52 Attack Helicopter - Int'l OK This is the 72nd scale Amodel kit of the KA-52. The twin-rotor all-weather combat Ka-52 "Alligator" helicopter is a twin-seat derivative of the attack Ka-50. Do a google search for pix - it's a really cool looking craft! The kit is newly tooled and limited-run, which means plenty of parts clean up is needed. But what you do have is a ton of detail and nice recessed panel lines. Kit is complete with instructions and decals.

FA: OLD Airfix 72nd Dornier 217 E.2 nice box art - Int'l OK This Series 3 kit comes with the classic Airfix box art, which is in very good shape no tears or crushing, just tape marks on the bottom. The kit is complete and includes a plastic stand - a rarity these days. The decals have yellowed due to age. <p> To view this auction (ending Sunday), cut and paste this into your browser: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item162296999&ssPageName ME:B:LC:US:1

I'm curious - your message puzzles me. Do you mean the decal sheet was made by Palitoy? DO you mean Palitoy also released this mold under their label? Are you saying that Palitoy has the original molds of the B (I). 6., unaltered, in their possesion?
Yours,
Tom

To the first two questions: yes. No to the third.
Airfix were owned by Palitoy at the time the tools were mangled. Why they thought it was a good idea is anyones guess.
So technically both are correct.
