Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$175   

Big 1/12 scale model with a 29 inch wingspan. Originally designed as a gas powered model for free flight or control line, or can be converted to electric power and modern RC (radio control) gear. Features covering material, full size plans, formed wire parts, full color fuel proof decals, die cut balsa and plywood parts and more. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Berkeley is a very famous manufacture of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.

Tamiya HMS Prince of Wales Battleship, 1/700, 77522

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$22   

1/700 scale waterline kit. Very finely molded and detailed. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions.

It was in this battle that both ships were sunk by Japanese airborne torpedo attack.

Aurora Martin B-26D Marauder - 'Aurora Line' Logo Famous Fighters of All Nations Issue, 1/46, 371-259

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$155   

Mid-1950s issue of the popular kit. Please note that this kit has the 1955 Aurora Line rectangular color logo on the box and on the instructions. Molded in silver and clear. With Aurora's practice of not wasting boxes, instructions, decals or even older parts, this kit contains the newer large clear 'triangle' stand and Tatem Company decals with a triangle logo for the stand. The kit has not been started. Inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions. When Aurora moved to the West Hempstead plant, they planned a series of very large bombers. All kits released up to this time had been fairly small. Aurora's instincts were correct, and the B-26, B-25 and B-29 were a big sales success. The first issue box art was done by Jim Cox and was only used for about one year. This is the second issue box art and the more famous of the two. The issue after this one retained the same box artwork but had the 'Famous Fighters' in the oval Sunburst logo.

Aurora 1920 Monroe Special Indianapolis 500 Winner - Kit and Built-Up, 1/30, 521-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$135   

Very rare. Includes a boxed kit and a partial built up. The kit is from ex-Best molds. Aurora purchased the Best molds for the Indianapolis 500 Winners and made one issue in 1958. Kit is molded in gloss blue with real rubber tires, spoke wheels and includes a crew of two and some interior detail. NOTE: the kit has been started. Someone assembled the sub-frames to the body and the steering wheel to the dash. However, they used Elmer's white glue, so the parts simply fell off. The remaining glue easily popped off the parts, leaving them with only slight to no wear. NOTE: includes all car parts and instructions but the top section of the brake handle and the decals are both missing. The front axle is missing one short end (that the wheel slides over), which can be replaced with a stock cylindrical part. The partial built up model is missing one rear brake drum and the steering wheel - other than that, it looks to be complete. Quality of assembly and paint is very good, and it is painted the correct green color with a red nose.

Duro-Matic Invader Aluminum Control Line Gas Airplane

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box

$195   

I have tentatively listed this as a Duro-Matic Invader, but I am not certain. It is of the same design, but that is all I know. It is very clean and may have never been flown. I say that because there is no fuel, grease, damage or obvious marks that it would have happened when it was landed. It is possible that it was flown, neatly grass-landed and carefully cleaned, however. The control line wires move the elevator but they are very sticky. There is no engine. It comes with the spinner, but I question if the spinner is original to the aircraft. I am not certain of the class; the wingspan is 13 inches tip to tip, the fuselage is 1 and 1/8 long (without the spinner) and it is 3 1/4 inches high at the engine cowl.

Comet Phantom Fury - 32 Inch Wingspan Flying Airplane - Plans by Robert Reder co-founder of Monogram, E24

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$32   

Stick-and-tissue kit from the 1930s. When Bob Reder was young, he was hooked on flying models. Upon graduation in 1935, he went to work for Comet.

This is a very nice kit for that time, featuring a large balsa printwood sheet, a pre-carved prop that only needs finish sanding, nose block, factory cut strip wood in all required sizes, other balsa stock as required for gear struts, etc., fully carved wooden wheels, red and orange covering tissue, clear window material, metal prop shaft and full size plans. The kit has never been started and is 100% complete. NOTE: The box looks great but is graded 'fair' because it is missing all of the end flaps.
