Micro Models The 1941 Request (Reproduction) - 30 inch Wingspan For R/C or Free Flight, 2/3, F102

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$49   

This is a reproduction of a classic design and is 2/3 the size of the original. It includes full size plans, pre-cut parts and is authentically scaled from the original design. 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.

Pyro IJN Musashi Battleship - Table Top Navy, 1/1200, C392-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$28   

Small scale ship kit from the Table Top Navy series. Very nicely done kits for their time. Can be built full hull or waterline. Features propeller and shaft detail, separately molded turrets, stacks, many superstructure parts and more. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and instructions. Many of the Pyro kits came from Eagle (then Eaglewall) molds in England. Eaglewall went out of business around 1962 and Pyro acquired at least some of the molds. Pyro reissued some of these kits in the mid 1960s with AJ Rudisill artwork. Evidently the line was successful, as Pyro then cut some of their own molds and expanded the series significantly. The earlier issues have the full color artwork and a three digit part number. Later issues have a 'B' or 'C' in front of the three digit kit number; some have simplified box art that is a modification of the original Rudisill paintings by painting out most of the background. Pyro issued these kits into the late 1960 when Life-Like took over the molds. Some were reissued by Life-Like.

Airfix NA-39 Blackburn Buccaneer - Craftmaster Issue, 1/72, 4-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+++

$38   

Still factory sealed. One of the more dramatic Craftmaster boxes. A British carrier launches heavily battle-damaged Buccaneers with enemy ships within visual range. Other Buccaneers are taking heavy and accurate fire from the enemy, while one ship is engulfed in flames. Propeller driven aircraft fall burning from the sky. The Buccaneer was the world's first purpose designed low level 'below the radar' bomber. Low level strike aircraft have a shorter airframe life limit due to the stresses of low level flying, so the Buccaneer was designed to be very strong and even had many sub-assemblies milled from solid metal. Kit features opening unique rotating bomb bay, folding wings and working arresting hook.

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Prototype number three flew after the German occupation in June of 1939. The design was successful and was reconstructed into the B-135 prototype and patterned for series production. Twelve machines were built for Bulgaria and were delivered in 1943. They did see action and one shot down a B-24 on March 30, 1944. The aircraft ended their careers as trainers after World War II. The kit features very high quality main vacuform airframe parts with fine recessed panel lines and all injection molded details. Vacuform part detail is better than many injection molded kits.
