Berkeley Piper Cub J-3 Giant R/C Model, 1/6, 2-2
Exc++   Wood   old
$240

Very large 1/6 scale kit with a 71 inch wingspan. Designed for RC (radio control). Features shock mounted wing panels, optional elevator trim, molded plastic cowl, full size plans with RC details, full decals, hardware, tapered trailing edges, dowels and wire, hardwood, die-cut celluloid, die cut hardwood and balsa and more. 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. Berkeley is a very famous manufacture of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.

Exc+   Injection Molded   old
$16

Unusual Aurora-Heller kit. One of Aurora's last efforts was to market quality Heller kits with the "Aurora-Heller" name. It was a good fit - Heller made quality kits but did not have the extreme marketing reach that Aurora had in North America. The kits could obviously be produced without a significant capital expense for Aurora since Heller had already cut the molds. Heller molded the kits in France, shipped them to the USA, and Aurora added instructions and a box. Although this was a good idea, Aurora's problems went much deeper and it certainly was not enough to save the company. This kit has not been started. Very nicely detailed with rigging instructions and decals for either aircraft. The parts are either still in the factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Heller SNECMA Coléoptère - Two Piece Box Issue, 1/48
Exc-   Injection Molded   old
$600

Very rare early Heller issue from the late 1950s. This is the two-piece high gloss box with very desirable artwork. Please note that on these early kits Heller did not assign kit numbers on the box. Very nicely molded kit in big 1/48 scale. This kit has never been started. It is either still in the internally sealed factory bag or has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Please note that Heller did not issue decals with this early release. Shipping insurance is required. The Société National d'Etude et de Construction de Moteurs d'Aviation (SNECMA) Coléoptère was a French vertical take-off and landing design that was to make expensive (and vulnerable) airfields obsolete. A thrust ratio of greater than 1:1 was achieved, and tests began in 1956. The design did fly and stole the show at Le Bourget in June 1957. However, like the Lockheed Pogo, it proved to be dangerous and quite a handful to fly.

The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.
