Maircraft Douglas DC-3 United Airlines' Mainliner 180 - Scale Solid Model Kit, 1/48, X-2

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$3500   

One of the rarest and most valuable aircraft models in US history, and certainly the finest solid model ever produced. The add from Model Airplane News in 1947 states 'MUCH MORE THAN A MODEL - IT'S A MINIATURE AIRPLANE!' - and it's true. Maircraft was originally founded in the early or mid 1930s by Gordon Christoph and went by the name Aircraft Model Company. The company produced a typical line of solid 'profile cut' kits that required the usual high talent levels for carving and finishing. A former Comet Model Airplane & Supply Co. salesman, Jack Mair, bought the company in the early 1940s and renamed it Maircraft. The company continued to produce the usual solid models, but plastics were coming into play and plastic was not considered a 'strategic war material'. Maircraft decided to produce a deluxe kit with more injection molded details and soon the excellent P-61 Black Widow kit was born. The kit came out in 1945 and was priced very high for the time. The P-61 must have sold, as the next project was determined to be the DC-3. Development of this great kit must have taken 1/2 a year or more although the exact time frame is unknown. Maircraft started to run adds in late 1946 modeling magazines with a 'price to be announced' statement; the January Model Airplane News add showed the whopping price of $9.95 - almost unheard of during that time. Maircraft's timing for such a wonderful model was unfortunate - almost all model manufactures predicted a huge boom in sales once the war ended and the opposite occurred, causing poor sales and high inventory levels. Maircraft went out of business shortly after introduction of the DC-3. I purchased this model from the original owner who purchased it new in 1947. This kit has never been started and is complete. The box is complete, has great colors, no tears, solid original corners and some litho bubbling. There is no fading, stains, writing or tears in the cardboard or the litho. The box is slightly crunched as it appears that someone place a heavier box on it at one point, but it's not serious. The kit is 100% complete and has never been touched. All internal display packing cardboard is intact. All injection molded details are still factory-affixed to the red display - landing gear and braces, two exhaust stacks, main wheels, rear baggage door and door frame, two air scoops, two cowls, two props, two P&W engines, forward cargo door and door frame, tail wheel, VHF Range and Glide Path antenna, loop antenna, two clear landing lights, main entrance door and door frame, tail wheel well and strut, two oil coolers and two clear landing lights. For the wooden parts, high quality balsa is used. Wings and stabilizers are cut to profile, except the center wing section was finished to an airfoil by the factory. Engine nacelles and fuselage sections are pre-cut and about 70% to shape. Many other stock wooden parts are factory pre-carved parts are present as well. The elaborate 'Douglas DC-3 Complete Template Sheet' is intact. Clear window material for cabin windows is included and the bag of hardware is still factory sealed. Paperwork is complete and excellent as well - the 'missing parts' sheet, 'Note from the Engineering Staff' brochure and 'Douglas DC-3 Illustrated Instruction Brochure' book are all in excellent condition with light foxing as the only flaw. The plans - the crowning glory of the model - are perhaps the most accurate ever produced outside of Douglas Aircraft Company. They are in excellent condition and have probably been opened two or three times judging from the lack of wear. The large decal sheet is near mint and even lacks the traditional yellowing or curling. Please note that the fuselage is hollow when built and full details are provided for cockpit and cabin detail and notes on lighting the model. A true investment-quality piece of modeling history for the advanced collector or museum. For the protection of the buyer this model will only be shipped via Express Mail Insured.

Testors SR-71A or SR-71B or CIA A-12/M-12, 1/48, 984

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$119   

Large kit measures over 26 inches long when assembled. Has markings and optional parts for "A" or "B" variants. Includes markings for one "B" (956) and two different "A" - 974 is a standard SR-71A and 972 is a 'Low Observable" scheme. Decals are included for the CIA A-12 / M-12, but Testors never did furnish the parts. The instructions provide drawings for making the proper modifications. Never started. All parts are still in factory sealed bags with decals and instructions. DOES NOT include paint and accessories (as shown on the box top) as the post office will not allow me to ship paint or glue.

Strombecker Convair XF2Y (Yf2Y-1) Sea Dart - Supersonic Float Plane - NO Rivet Detail, 1/60, D25-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$155   

From the 1950s. Rare first issue with no rivet detail on the plastic parts. Later issues all had this detail added. Box has great color. Nicely done kit for the time. Molded in dark blue plastic. Has very colorful decals in like-new contiion for this unusual and beautiful aircraft. Never started. Inventoried with all parts, decals, Strombecker club application and instructions present. Strombecker was very well known for producing the finest pre-carved hardwood aircraft and missile kits, but they had a very short journey into the plastic model field. After making the Sea Dart kit in 1956, they added four more for a total of 5 injection molded aircraft kits. All were discontinued in the mid 1960s. The Sea Dart was a supersonic design that could take off and land from water using retractable hydro-skis. Five prototypes were built and over 300 test flights made. The advent of the super carrier spelled the end of the Sea Dart, although 4 still exist on display today.

Aurora Curtiss Warhawk P-40 Flying Tiger 'Train' Artwork, 1/48, 44-59

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$150   

Very rare. Jim Cox did a few different box art versions of the P-40 for Aurora, and this one is by far the rarest. The box is 100% complete but has serious damage to the top in the form of litho and cardboard tears; for this reason I have grade the box 'fair.' The box topsides and bottom tray are 'very good' to 'excellent.' Inside, the kit is 100% correct. The model has the early one-piece wings, landing gear and bombs for this issue. The clear stand has the rectangle base, and the decals are by Tatem and have no stand decal (that would come later with the new Triangle stand). The instructions have the early WH logo. Decals and instructions are excellent. Molded in gloss olive drab and clear. Never started and complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Aurora Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, 1/156, 491-70

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

$145   

Dated 1961. This issue has the oval 'sunburst' logo and a 70 cent price extension, so the actual issue date is probably the mid 1960s. The hardbox has excellent color and gloss, four solid corners and very light wear as shown. The kit is molded in olive drab and clear and contains the correct Aurora 'world' triangle stand. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. I would have graded this box 'near mint' but it has 3 digits written on the left side of the box.
