Hasegawa I-401 Motorized Wood and Metal Submarine, 1/160

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$950   

Sale Pending
Email for availability.

Very, very rare. Few know that the first Hasegawa kits were primarily wood and there was quite a line of them. It appears that all were motorized, from the heavy cruisers, 1/300 IJN Battleships to a 1/400 NS Savannah and even a giant Iowa class battlewagon. This is the only submarine - I401 of the famous I-400 class airplane carriers. This giant kit measures 30 inches (762mm) long when built and is designed for static display or operation in water. Features a completely factory carved hardwood hull with no sanding required, fully cut and finished ribbed hardwood decks, factory assembled forward deck, numerous other hardwood parts all cut to shape, some small rough cut wood parts, a tiny scale aircraft model for the deck (plastic, 7 parts with decals, still factory sealed in the small box), numerous brass and metal hand-soldered parts including railings with stanchions, island gun decks and much more, metal props and drive shafts w/hull ports, a stunning all metal gear box with brass gears that is still mint in the box, a TKK Mabuchi DC motor still in the old-style box with instruction sheet, triple battery holders, reproduced photo of the built kit (and she is beautiful!), very large instruction sheet with numerous drawings for all steps and operation/motorizing notes (all in 'very good++' condition) and full-size blue prints in 'excellent' condition. The kit has never been started: NOTE: If the ship had decals or not is unknown from the instructions; there are none present. Beyond that, the kit has been inventoried with all other parts and paperwork. Even the original Hasegawa paper headers for the bags are present, and even the cardboard they were originally stapled to are present - although the bags were open, which is why I did the inventory. I have returned the contents to as close to factory condition as I could. You will notice yellowed cellophane in the photo - this kit originally had cello factory sealed over the inner box at the factory, so that the prospective owner could remove the box top and view the (factory sealed) contents. NOTE: the upper and lower boxes were complete but in very bad (poor) condition. I spent 4 hours fixing them correctly from the inside. Please be aware that I have rated them 'fair' and complete, but there were completely flat and in 5 parts when I received them. There is a great deal of wear, as you can imagine. NOTE: A shaft came off one diving plane but was present - I cleaned the parts and soldered it back into position.

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Classic kit from the Craftsman Era of HO kits. Very detailed and well made kit.

Revell Avro Dam Buster Lancaster, 1/72, H202

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$42   

Revell of Germany issue with full English and German instruction sheets. This kit was sold new at the RAF Museum Hendon and still retains the price tag from there. With 'Secret Bomb.'. 1960s issue. Features specially modified Lancaster fuselage with Dam Buster bomb and release mechanism. Landing gear retracts, props and wheels turns and control surfaces move. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The Dam Busters squadron was famous for its daring raids on three German dams on May 16, 1943. Carrying the special Barns Wallis-designed bombs, the Lancasters flew very low over the water in the face of heavy flak to drop the rotating bombs perfectly. Many did not return. The bombs did perform as promised, first skipping over the water, hitting the dam, then rolling down 30 feet before exploding with tremendous force. In an airburst, these bombs would not have damaged the dams, but since water is incompressible, the dams were breached.

Guillows Supermarine Spitfire - 27 inch Wingspan Rubber / RC / CL Flying Model, 1/16, 403

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$55   

Still factory sealed and in investment-grade condition. Purchased new on May 23, 1967 in Northern Ohio. Large scale model that can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using modern small and light servos and receivers. Well detailed with scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform nose/cowl and engine, full color decals, colored tissue, die cut balsa parts, rubber motor, plywood firewall and excellent full size plans. Guillow's founder, Paul K. Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.

Cleveland 1936 Caudron Racer - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-63

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$175   

This is a Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. The kit came from a long time collector of 1930s and 1940s models and is in exceptional condition. All Cleveland kits were exceptionally complete and this one is no exception. Features very high quality balsa printwood and strip wood, covering material, highest quality plans, all parts required for assembly and decals (if issued with the kit). The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. The Cleveland Model and Supply Company played a pivotal role in the development of true scale models. In 1909 Bleriot's English Channel flight caused a surge in aviation and model aircraft around the globe. Several companies were ideally positioned to take advantage of the aviation craze. In the USA, Wading River Manufacturing Co. (1909), White Aeroplane (1911), Ideal Model Aeroplane (1911), Broadfield Model Aeroplanes (1919) were among these pioneers, offering everything from plans and parts to complete kits and ARF models. Lindbergh's 1927 crossing of the Atlantic Ocean caused an even bigger world-wide phenomenon called 'The Aviation Craze' that extended up to the start of World War II. Many companies such as Megow, Guillow's and others started right around the time of Lindbergh's flight. Some of these models flew and flew well, but they all had one thing in common - were generally not accurate scale representations. In 1929, a youngster named Ed Packard had a very advanced dream to produce incredibly accurate, true scale models that flew perfectly. This radical idea established the world's longest operating single-owner model airplane supply business, called Cleveland Model and Supply Company. To this day, Cleveland models are treasured as the most accurate flying scale models produced. The fact that Mr. Packard started and successfully grew this business during The Great Depression is a testament to his ideals and business skill. I highly suggest the excellent book called 'Aviations great Recruiter, Cleveland's Ed Packard' by H.L. (Herm) Schreiner. It is an excellent history of the man, his company and the times of the Golden Age of Model Aviation.
