Hawk Boeing P-26A Peashooter - Solid Wood Model Airplane, 1/48, 17

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$44   

For the advanced Hawk collector. Hawk was one of the few manufacturers making wooden kits to a constant scale of 1/48. However, the company was innovative as it quickly included injection molded accessories. This kit dates from the 1930s and contains a very nice three-dimension profile cut wooden fuselage (most manufacturers only cut them in two dimensions if at all), two dimension profile cut wings, wheel pants, rudder and elevator, completely finished wood cowl and wheels/tires, cast metal prop, sealed tube of glue, a cardstock pilot, backrest, throttle quadrant and instrument panel, full color insignia sheet, full size, well-detailed plans and two tubes of factory glass paint vials - one red and one blue. Each have the original cork stopper installed. The red one has spilled some paint on the inside of the box. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The box sides show 'Railroad Models', 'Airplane Models' and 'Boat Models' as part of the Hawk line, which probably places the date of this kit around the late 1930s.

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$55   

This is a Kyosho kit made and packed in Japan in the 1960s but marketed by Kayeff Inc in California. I estimate the wingspan to be about 36 inches. This is a beautiful classic kit with a high degree of prefabrication for it's day. The kit features completely precut ribs, wheel pants, firewall, elevator, rudder and many other balsa parts (thin and very thick), die-cut plywood fuselage bulkheads, formed wire main and nose landing gear, balloon tires, metal push rods (for control line linkage), a metal hardware pack that is still sealed, numerous other wood and metal parts as needed, window material, tissue covering and more. This kit has not been started. The parts are complete, with the factory sealed ones still bag sealed and many parts still wrapped with the factory Kyosho tape. NOTE: I have lost the plans to this kit. You will need to find a set of Kyosho plans to build this model.

Ace Model Shop MG TC Midget, 1/20, 8R

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$28   

Hard-to-find kit from 1951. The Ace Products Company was located at 60 N. San Gabriel Blvd, Pasadena 8, California and produced a line of automobiles and perhaps other subjects also. This kit consists of injection molded hard plastic black wheels and tires, clear injection molded headlights and holders, cast metal steering wheel, grill and MG decals and pre-cut and stock wooden parts. The majority of the parts, including the body, seats, fenders, etc are profile cut. Includes full size plans with assembly illustrations, detailed (for that time) written instructions and two photos of the completed model. NOTE: at one time the passenger 'box' was built. Due to the use of poor glue, it has fallen apart. The pieces are intact and can be easily assembled again. One piece broke and was neatly repaired. You can use it or replace it with wood (it is balsa) if you desire. There was no other assembly.

Monogram Speedee-Bilt Long Midget or Midget Mustang - Flying Scale Model, G6-100

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$125   

Formerly released as the Midget Mustang. Scale flying rubber powered wooden model. Before there were plastic models, there were wooden aircraft kits. These usually came in two types - solid and stick and tissue. The solid models were static and usually contained a few blocks of balsa and sometimes a detail part or two. These "Make Wood Look Like Plane" models required a very high level of skill in carving and finishing. The stick and tissue variety were slightly easier to build and provided the ultimate thrill - they could fly when complete with rubber power (and later with free-flight gas and eventually RC). They still required a great deal of skill, so manufactures sought ways to make model building more accessible to everyone. One idea was pre-carving and/or prefabrication. This raised prices, naturally. Many manufactures launched lines of 'easy' to build flying models but only Monogram succeeded in making an entire line at an affordable price that would actual fly. The original "Speedee-Bilt" kits were in one-piece two-color boxes. In the early 1950s, shortly before plastic kits were available, Monogram changed to the 'hardbox' with a lithographic slick glued to the top as this kit. Speedee-Bilt kits contained die cut and pre painted wooden parts, completely formed airfoil wings, carved wheels and numerous plastic details like cowlings, pilot, missiles, prop and more. Assembly was by detailed full size plans. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
