Helicopters For Industry Piasecki HUP Retriever US Navy - (H-25 Mule), 1/48

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$225   

Very rare. Before Aurora had helicopter kits, there was the worlds' first 'copter kit line from 'Helicopters for Industry.' Dates from the early 1950s. The HFI molds for the HUP did quadruple duty, being box with Navy, Marines, Army and Air Force decals/colors. This one is the Navy version, which is molded in a beautiful gloss dark blue and clear. Features cockpit with instrument panel, control sticks and seats and spinning rotors and the unique clear HFI stand, which is still wrapped in the protective tissue paper. Aurora did not issue this kit with the stand. The kit has never been started. All the small parts are still sealed in the factory 'krinkle' bag, and the large parts that were never sealed have been inventoried 100% complete. The decals are 'excellent' and flat and the clear parts are 'excellent' as well. Instructions are 'excellent+' with the typical light yellowing. The box sides are in color and show the four other colors and decals for the HUP. This kit must be shipped insured.

Comet Boeing 707 Stratotanker (367-80 - Dash 80), 1/125, PL800-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$110   

Comet originally began model production in 1929 with a line of balsa flying models. In the mid-1950s Comet made a beautiful line of small and medium scale aircraft and missile models with colorful boxes. The early issues were in one-piece 'flip-top' boxes, and the later issues and releases were in standard two-piece 'hardboxes' with a lithograph slick glued to the top box. In 1963 Comet sold the plastic kit molds to Aurora, who reissued some but not all of the kits. There were two Boeing 707 models made. This is the two-piece box larger scale (1/125) 'Stratotanker' - not really a tanker model at all, but a nice kit of the famous Dash-80 Prototype Tanker/707, which lead to the world's first commercially-successful airliner. Well molded with fine recessed panel lines, landing gear and prototype decals. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions in 'as new' condition.

Guillows Messerschmitt Messerschmitt Bf-109 - 24 inch Wingspan for Free Flight or R/C, 1/16, 401

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

$38   

Still factory sealed. From the 1960s. Large scale well detailed kit. Can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using today's small and light servos and receivers. Well detailed with scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform engine cowl and spinner, 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 Turner's 1934 Wedell-Williams Racer - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-48

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$125   

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.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG+

$34   

Still factory sealed but the seal has split and drawn the box top slightly concave. Unusual Revell of Germany issue from 1988. The unique box art shows the Catalina that discovered the Bismarck, complete with the German Battlewagon below.

He was one of only 17 pilots loaned to the RAF to help them gain experience with the Catalina.

Hawk Laird Solution Racer - with Racing Pylon Stand, 1/48, 628-60

The Laird Solution won the first official Thompson Trophy Race in 1930 at the Curtiss-Wright Reynolds Airport in Chicago. The Laird was the only Biplane to win the Thompson and it beat all the military aircraft. Charles 'Speed' Holman was the pilot and was the first civilian to attain a speed over 200 mph in a closed course event nationally. E. M. Laird Airplane Company built the aircraft for BF Goodrich. Construction began only 3 weeks before the race. There was only one 10 minute trial flight before the aircraft won the race.

Pyro 1930 Bentley Le Mans Blower, 1/32, C304-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$26   

1960s Pyro issue from original molds. The model includes beautiful green injection molded parts including wire wheels (not solid wheels), clear parts, detailed chassis and complete interior. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. NOTE: this kit has minor, neat assembly. The body and wheel halves have been assembled; quality of assembly is 'professional.' There is some minor but very neat painting to smaller parts as well. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of it's kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. In some cases, the specific car and owner is on the box.
