Aircraft Models Company of America Fokker Universal Scale Replica Model Kit - Flying Wooden Model From 1933 - 24 Inch Wingspan
Aircraft Models Company of America Fokker Universal Scale Replica Model Kit - Flying Wooden Model From 1933 - 24 Inch Wingspan
Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++,   old
$175

Very rare kit from 1933. Although well known, balsa wood did not come into widespread commercial modeling use until the 1930s. Before then, aircraft kits were composed of hardwoods, bamboo, metal fittings and silk, fabric or tissue covering. This interesting kit bridges the gap between 'old' and 'new' (at the time) wooden kits. The parts are balsa, bamboo, metal and celluloid. The manufacture was Aircraft Models Company of America, 29 Bartholomew Avenue, Hartford Connecticut. They made solid and flying models and the original price of this model was $1.50 - rather expensive at the time. The high price was justified by the unusual complete nature of the kit. The prop blank is machined (not finished) carved, all ribs are completely cut out and notched, the nose block is machine carved, the wheels completely formed celluloid and balsa, the stripwood is cut to the proper width and height, there is clear celluloid for the windows, complete full size blue-print plans, metal bushings and washers, sandpaper, beautiful red tissue, a glass bottle of "Tissue Cement - Aircraft Models Company of American", a bottle of "Tissue Dope" (also labeled), a cork-sealed vial of red paint, and general assembly instructions. The kit has never been started. NOTE: it is missing 2 of 6 small brass eyelets (bushings) and 3 of 6 very small washers. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts, plans, instructions and supplies.

Pocher made the finest automobile models ever created. The detail and working parts on these long out-of-production, big 1/8 scale kits is amazing.

Working features include operating steering, working suspension, lights that operate from the dashboard, doors that open and close with operating door latches and handles, starting handle that operates the crankshaft, connecting rods, pistons, V-belts, Fan, dynamo, etc in the engine. The convertible top operates - and much, much, more more. Recommended for experienced models only. This is the desirable early version with the most realistic wheel construction. Each wheel is built just like a real spoke wheel with individual spokes and well over 100 parts. The kit has never been started. The box has been opened, but inside the kit is factory new. All parts that were factory bagged are still in the internal factory sealed bags. The few parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions.

Aurora Convair 880 SuperJet TWA, 1/103, 384-250
Aurora Convair 880 SuperJet TWA, 1/103, 384-250
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint,   old
$225

Still factory sealed. Dated 1961. The Convair 880 and it's near sister 990 were very high performance airliners. Unfortunately they did not find favor with commercial operators. Only 65 880s were produced from 1959 to 1962. The aircraft was designed to be smaller and faster than the DC-8 and 707 - this market did not develop, however, and if it did it could have been served with less expensive designs. The 990 was a larger and faster (mach .91) airliner, but it failed to meet it's range criteria for east to west crossings of the USA. As a result, only 37 were made. Interestingly enough, several 990s continued to be operated by private owners and NASA operated two 990s for decades after the last 990 was phased out of commercial service.

Precise Sparrow II Missile (CF-105 Arrow) Douglas Bendix
Precise Sparrow II Missile (CF-105 Arrow) Douglas Bendix
Other Materials,   old
$750

This was the intended weapons system for the Canadian Arrow Interceptor program. Major problems prevented the Sparrow II from operational service and played a small roll in the demise of the Arrow. Other systems were more expensive or less effective. The AWG-9 was offered, but was too costly. The Falcon was offered, but was not adequate. Thus the beautiful aircraft without a weapon came to be canceled. This very rare display model was made by Precise as a promotional item for Douglas and Bendix (the two main contractors). The missile is 6.5 inches long as is the clear base. It comes in it's original shipping box with a two-sided information card on the missile. Condition is mint - it has only been taken out of the box twice. Base upright reads 'Douglas Bendix Sparrow II'. No touch ups/repairs or cracks. Insurance required on shipping.

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+,   old

For the advanced Hawk collector. Hawk was one of the few manufactures 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 very late 1930s or early 1940s and contains a very nice three-dimension profile cut wooden fuselage (most manufactures only cut them in two dimensions if at all), two dimension profile cut wings, rudder and elevator, three completely finished wood 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 one glass tube of factory paint with the original cork stopper. 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.
