Berkeley Culver V - For R/C or Free Flight, 1/12

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.

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.

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.
