Revell Douglas DC-7 Pan Am Airport Scene - 'S' Kit with Boarding Ramp / Stanchions / Gasoline Truck & Trailer / Tractor with 3 Baggage Carts / Aircraft Tractor and 7 Figures, 1/122, H257

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$2000   

Very rare. The Pan Am Airport Scene was commissioned by Pan Am in the late 1950s and only sold through the airline, not through Revell distributors. This has made the kit one of the rarest Revell kits in existence. It is widely considered an 'S' kit since it was made at that time and features that style of artwork, but the box does not have the yellow 'S' anywhere on it. It contains all the parts and markings listed in the title and makes an incredible airport diorama. The box has excellent color and gloss with no tears or stains. Three corners are solid - the other has been repaired very neatly with clear tape. There is general wear but no other damage. Inside, the parts are as new. All pieces are in the correct gloss silver and the Revell 'Swivel Base Display Stand' is molded in clear. The airport accessories are still sealed in the original factory bag, including the metal axles. The unique decal sheet for this special issue is intact and never cut. It contains Pan Am DC-7 decals and markings for the ground equipment. The decals are flat but have some yellowing. On the back they have the correct Revell markings and kit number to be original for this model. The instructions were missing from this kit, so I used large format paper to make a quality photocopy of an original set of instructions. This copy is the same size as the actual instructions, quite large. It is not many small sheets put together. In all, an excellent investment piece that has never been started and is bag sealed and inventoried complete. Please note that Revell did NOT issue this kit with paper 'carpet' like the United Airlines Flight 707 Airport Scene. The 'carpet' has been intentionally de-listed from the area of the box that describes the contents and has been removed from the instructions as well. Although this kit does not have an 'S' on it, I have included it as an 'S' kit since it is from that time frame and shares the common box art theme.

H&F Model Airplane Co The Bee - 48 inch Wingspan Free Flight or R/C

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$89   

H&F was out of Brooklyn, NY in the 1930/40s. Rare 1930s free flight model for B Class Competition. Since this model is super-stable, it would make an ideal conversion to RC. This model came from the estate of a very active and particular early aircraft kit collector. It is like factory-new inside and has not been started - it even includes 1930s style low profile wheels/tires. Complete with all parts, plans and decals (if originally included). Designed for 'Sniffing Thermals', the honored pastime of a generation of model enthusiasts. Flying model aircraft predated powered flight; however, balsa wood and printwood were not introduced until the early 1930s and the hobby took off, as well as the hunt for thermals. Gas flight began in the early 1930s, and early gas powered models, all powered by Brown engines, took home so many awards that they were forever separated in competition from rubber powered models. Design of gas models was tricky since RC (radio control) models could not yet be applied to the mass market; so a gas model had to not only fly and climb under power, but then glide sufficiently - all without any operator inputs once the airplane took off.

Cal Aero-Model Brooklyn Dodger (Reproduction) - 32 1/4 inch Wingspan For R/C or Free Flight

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$49   

Smaller scale repro kit of the famous Sal Taibli's Brooklyn Dodger competition free-flight aircraft, originally issued by H&F with a 56 inch wingspan. For .020 power free flight or RC. This model came from the estate of a very active and particular early aircraft kit collector. It is like factory-new inside and has not been started. Complete with all parts, plans and decals (if originally included). Designed for 'Sniffing Thermals', the honored pastime of a generation of model enthusiasts. Flying model aircraft predated powered flight; however, balsa wood and printwood were not introduced until the early 1930s and the hobby took off, as well as the hunt for thermals. Gas flight began in the early 1930s, and powered models (most all driven by Brown engines) took home so many awards that they were forever separated in competition from rubber powered models. Design of gas models was tricky since RC (radio control) models could not yet be applied to the mass market; so a gas model had to not only fly and climb under power, but then glide sufficiently - all in a stable fashion and without any operator inputs once the airplane took off.
