Bilway Corporation Soaring Sam - 53 inch Wingspan Free Glider, 7770

Other Materials,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Bilway Corporation of New York, New York created the famous 'Soaring Sam' in the 1972. It was an excellent flier and it proved to be very popular. Made entirely of injection molded hard foam, Soaring Sam is very light and has a glide ratio of 48 to 1. The wings and tail are designed to snap free upon any rough impact. Molded with a white fuselage and orange wings and stabilizer. Includes full instructions on flying and trimming. Never assembled or flow - in mint condition inside the box. Ironically, Soaring Sam could now be easily converted to RC with today's feather-weight receivers, batteries and servos.

Revell Covered Wagon - (ex- Miniature Masterpiece), 1/48, K213-88

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

Rare 1958 issue. Very highly detailed model includes wagon, accessories, base, two Longhorn Oxen, horse, rider and two figures. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including instructions. This kit has an interesting history. 'Miniature Masterpieces' was formed through an alliance of Lou Glasser (Revell) and Steve Adams (Adams Action Models) in 1953. Although the molds were made at Adams and it had the appearance of an independent company, the firm was run by Revell down to the prototypes being made at the Revell plant. Originally there was no evidence of the parent company on the surface. The State Coach of England was the first kit, issued in 1953. More kits of excellent quality followed. Revell completely took over the line in 1954 and in that year and the next, kits were labeled 'Revell' with a 'Miniature Masterpiece' label on the box top also. However, Adams broke the relationship with Revell in the later 1950s and began making kits under the Adams name with the original molds.

Sterling P-51D Mustang - 24 inch Wingspan for RC - Drops Twin Bombs in Flight, A13-398

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

24 inch wingspan kit for RC, free flight or control line. Includes innovative system for automatically dropping twin wing mounted bombs in flight. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occured in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they featured color decals, high-grade die cut balsa, vacuform plastic detail parts, plastic wheels (if required), finished wire landing gear, rubber motor and plastic prop, full size plans with instruction details and full instructions for conversion to RC or control line. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
