Berkeley Super-Brigadier - For R/C and Payload Contest
Berkeley Super-Brigadier - For R/C and Payload Contest
Exc   Wood   old
$220

Very early radio control (RC) aircraft with a 59 inch wingspan. In the free-flight roll, it meets the old Pan-American Airways Pay-Load Contest requirements for class A and B. Please note the similarity in design to the early free-flight models - most early RC models had this appearance. This type of stability was required due to the difficult nature of RC control in the late 1930s. The kit features shaped and notched wing edges, die-cut plywood firewall, complete metal hardware, cut out windshield, full size plans, rubber wheels and covering material. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts 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.

Rare. From about 1953. Early Gowland-produced set with no part number. Gowland designed and molded these kits as well as providing the box artwork and instructions - Revell did the marketing. Inside, the kit is correct with all cardboard dividers, tires molded in black and the cars molded in red, black, dark blue, yellow and green, correct instructions and the small parts are in the factory wax paper bags. The models have never been started. All kits have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Before the 1950s 'model building' as a hobby did not even make the top 10 list of boy’s activities. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream. Shortly after the turn of the century, many dedicated modelers built flying or static airplanes, ship, train, automotive or other subjects. Basic kits existed, but the majority of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s. The phenomenon of the Revell/Gowland & Gowland ‘Highway Pioneers’ car kits was a significant mover in proving that model building as a hobby could have mass appeal, provided that the kits were easy enough to build and finish. They could be built in an hour after dinner and looked like the real car. The 'Highway Pioneers' series helped lead to the production of other subjects in plastic. The effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, 'model building' was the # 1 past time of American boys.

Final logo issue from the late 1970s just before Frog ceased production. Nicely molded kit contains parts and decals for both versions. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Frog is considered the father of injection molded model kits. The Lines Brothers opened Frog in 1932, capitalizing on the fever caused by Lindberg's solo transatlantic flight. Almost overnight the western populations became 'Air-Minded', and anything aviation was in high demand. Frog created a quality line of stick and tissue rubber powered aircraft and gliders as well as innovative ready-to-fly rubber powered aircraft that required no assembly. The box even contained a built-in rubber motor winder and fuselage holder. Model airplane flight competitions were popular in Great Britain, and one category was 'Rise Off the Ground', or ROG. By changing this to 'Flies Right Off the Ground', the FROG name was born. In 1936 Frog created a line of injection molded plastic models, the first such kit line in the world (Hawk sold a line of injection molded aircraft models in 1934 but they were factory assembled and painted). Named 'Penguin' after the bird that does not fly, the kits were innovative beyond the means of production. At a time when models were simply built by wingspan, the Penguin line was a constant 1/72 scale. Furthermore, a large 1/72 Short S.30 Empire class flying boat contained a full interior and lights! A line of accessories such as AA guns, tractors, hanger, ambulance, sound locator, searchlights and lighting kits were quickly added to the line. WWII caused a pause in production. After the war the box color changed from silver to green, and Penguin kits were also marketed in the USA. Production ended in 1950. Frog quickly expanded and released the Red, Blue, Orange, Black, Green, Gold Token, Spin and Comet series as well as Trail Blazers and several others. It is noteworthy that while most manufactures in the 1940s/50 were making toy-like models, Frog attempted to make very realistic models. For example, 'detailing' kits with excessively large rivets was once very popular. Frog ignored this trend and continued to mold aircraft with fine panel lines and no rivets. As a result, Frog kits can be built into very realistic replicas. Production ended in the late 1970s, but Frog molds are still in use around the world.

Type three logo issue. Zeros press in close to score hits on a formation of TBFs as Avenger gunners score back. This is unusual as this same artwork was used later on both Craftmaster TBF issues; usually the Craftmaster artwork did not borrow from the T3s and was original to that series. Well molded kit. Features elevating gun, rotating turret, three crew members, moving ailerons, all correct clear windows, optional position landing gear, underwing rockets and decals for both aircraft. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

From 1956. Very rare first issue with 'Famous Fighters' square 'Northern Lights' logo. Classic Jo Kotula artwork. This issue only lasted one year, as in 1957 the new oval logo box was used. The box is in excellent condition with all solid corners, no fading or stains, no price tags or marks . Somehow, this box escaped the factory thin tape, as there are not even any marks for that. Inside, the model is as new down to the original packing tissue. The parts are high gloss silver. The instructions are dated 1956 and correctly show the old style logo and square clear stand. The decals and stand are correct for this issue also. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts, decals, instructions and correct square clear 2-piece stand.

NOTE: this is a builder kit only. It has been neatly started and painted. Please read carefully. Nicely molded kit with 103 parts. NOTE: the only parts that are NOT painted are the fuselage halves. All other parts have been very neatly airbrushed, including a correct two-tone wing. All painting is excellent. NOTE: the wing, stabilizer, nacelles and wheel halves have been neatly assembled. The cockpit is built (and properly painted, and the instrument panel decal is applied). The scissors were glued to the struts before they were painted. The side windows are neatly installed in the fuselage and are masked off from the outside for painting. All work is very well done. NOTE: this kit has been convered. The fuselage plug between the 2nd and 3rd windows has been removed and the fuselage glued back correctly. Round windows were added just behind this, up high. All work done is excellent. I believe they were converting this to a DC-6A, but I cannot be sure. Inventoried with the instructions, all parts and decals for SAS or UTA. NOTE: includes antenna and underside pod from the Security Civile Heller DC-6 kit #80316.
