Monogram Speedee-Bilt Long Midget - (Or Midget Mustang) Flying Scale Model, G6-100
Monogram Speedee-Bilt Long Midget - (Or Midget Mustang) Flying Scale Model, G6-100
Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++,   old
$155

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. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Duro-Matic Invader Class B Control Line Metal Racing Aircraft
Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++,   old
$495

Very rare, especially when found in new in the box. From the late 1940s or early 1950s. The box in in 'very good++' condition. General wear is the only flaw. The display box folds very nicely so you can show it either way. It has never been flown. It is designed for a McCoy 29 size engine (not included). NOTE: this kit has very minor assembly. Final fitting and trimming was done to the wooden center spar and the bell crank was fit to the spar. Quality of work is 'excellent' and the spar fits perfectly now. There has been no other assembly. The model has been inventoried with all airplane parts present, the Duro-Matic booklet 'Speed Tips", large fold-out plans/instructions and additional fuel tank instructions. NOTE: missing decal. This kit must be shipped insured.

Heller De Grasse C610 Cruiser, 1/400, 81039
Heller De Grasse C610 Cruiser, 1/400, 81039
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++,   old
$38

Finely molded and detailed like most Heller ship kits. Full hull kits includes full prop and rudder detail, guns that elevate and turrets that rotate, very well detailed bridge and deck fittings, scouting helicopter, railings, full decals and display stand. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The De Grasse has a very long history. She was started in 1938 and all work was suspended during WWII. She was launched on September 11, 1946. Plans were changed to convert her into an anti-aircraft cruiser and the ship entered service on September 3, 1956. In 1965/66 the De Grasse was rebuilt as a command ship for the Nuclear Test Centers in the Pacific. The model appears to be of this final configuration in my judgment - the instructions do not say.
