The original four-place 1953 demonstrator Taylorcraft 15A, N6653N, first went to a flight school in Texas where it was used for rides. Then it went to Alaska where in the 1950s and 1960s a church flew supplies to remote settlements until a shortage of parts led to dereliction. The aircraft sat in the weeds at Fairbanks International Airport in the 1970s until it left Alaska on a truck with the promise of restoration in Florida.
The restoration never happened, but two pilots in Alliance stepped in, restored it, then sold it in 1992 for $24,000. By 2010 it was owned by Robert Peterson of Mahaffey, Pennsylvania. It features a Lear Omnimatic navigation radio developed by Bill Lear, father of the Learjet.

The Classic Marvel Figurine Collection is a magazine series published by Eaglemoss Publications from 2005 to 2012, through which consumers can collect hand-painted lead figurines of the Marvel Comics characters. The figurines are produced at a 1:21 scale, so that regular figurines have a height around 9 cm (3.5 in). Bigger figurines are also produced: bulky characters like the Hulk are considered as Specials while giant characters like Galactus are called Mega Specials. Double Packs consisting of two figurines of related characters have also been released.

The Classic Marvel Figurine Collection was a magazine collection by Eaglemoss Publications, and Marvel Comics, launched in 2005 in the United Kingdom. The series was so successful it inspired the release of The DC Super Hero Figurine Collection which started 3 years later. The two "competing" comic universe figures would run simultaneously for a number of years. Each informational magazine featured a single Marvel super hero's history - and was accompanied by a hand painted, roughly 3 1/2" tall, lead figure of said character. "Special" editions would be created to accommodate the "larger" Marvel characters. The collection consisted of two regular issues a month, with a special issue released every two months, to accommodate the larger characters in the Marvel Universe. The same format and figures were released in other English speaking countries - as well as some Spanish speaking ones (the accompanying magazine was translated into Spanish).  The magazine series officially ended in 2012, with 200 issues in the main series, twenty specials, seven mega-specials and four two-figure packs.

Note: the comics and figures were sent via standard snail mail - while the figures were generally well protected in cardboard boxes with clear acetate "formed" bubbles/covers - the magazines were merely placed into plastic bags - with most (all?) suffering typical mail transportation and aging wear. Note while our figures and magazines will ship with their original boxes (unless otherwise described in the listing), the original outer plastic "baggie" will not be included. Example of one of the boxed figures follows below:
