Williams Brothers Northrop Gamma Texaco 'Sky Chief' or 'Polar Star', 1/72, 72-214

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$28   

The Gamma was designed by John Northrop and was considered very advanced in 1933. The airplane was an instant success. Texaco took delivery of the first one and set numerous cross-country speed records, in addition to being a crowd favorite at air shows. Dr. Lincoln Ellsworth used a Gamma in 1935 for a successful Trans-Antarctic Flight in the 'Polar Star'. This aircraft now rests in the Smithsonian. Gammas were also flown by Howard Hughes and Jacqueline Cochran. The model is very nicely molded and detailed and can build one of two versions of the Sky Chief (Phase I or III) or one of two versions of the Polar Star (Phase I or II)and includes all optional parts required to do so including two different engines, cowlings, nose sections, two and three blade propellers, canopies, one and two seat cockpits and tail wheels as required. Includes an extensive Micro-Scale color decal sheet for two versions each of the Polar Star and Sky Chief. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Airfix Henschel Hs-123A-1 Dive Bomber - Bagged, 1/72, 136

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$24   

Still factory sealed with a near mint condition header. Airfix type three logo from the 1960s. Nice kit that is well molded for that time. The Hs-123 was the Luftwaffe's first in-service dive bomber and was built by the famous locomotive maker Henschel. The '123 had been replaced by the start of WWII by the Stuka, but demand continued for the aircraft and they were of great use in Belgium and France. During the terrible weather of the Russian campaign, the HS-123 once again found itself in demand. When conditions were so bad that other aircraft could not fly, the Hs-123 would often be in the air. The sturdy construction and good flying characteristics made it a favorite among pilots.
