Midwest T-Bird (Tbird) - 39 inch Wingspan Aircraft for Sport or Competition Free Flight, FG-7

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$135   

Built for 'Sniffing Thermals', the honored pastime of a generation of model enthusiasts. Flying model aircraft predated powered flight; however, balsa wood and printwood were not introduced until the early 1930s and the hobby took off, as well as the hunt for thermals. Gas flight began in the early 1930s, and early gas powered models, all powered by Brown engines, took home so many awards that they were forever separated in competition from rubber powered models. Design of gas models was tricky since RC (radio control) modelscould not yet be applied to the mass market; so a gas model had to not only fly and climb under power, but then glide sufficiently - all without any operator inputs once the airplane took off. Getting the wing up out of the propeller airflow was a huge improvement, and this type of design proliferated. This is one example of a parasol style 1940s free-flight competition aircraft designed by Russ Hansen. Quality kit includes printwood, strip wood, wheels, tissue and beautiful full size plans. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

Joe Ott Grumman F6F Hellcat 'Bild-A-Set' - 38 Inch Wingspan Flying Model, 107

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$179   

Dated 1944. Large 36 inch wingspan issue. The Joe Ott designed 'Bilt-A-Set' series was the height of classic stick and tissue flying model kits- not just for the box art, but also for the contents. The large wingspan kits were the top of the Joe Ott line and had a price tag to match. They were out of reach of most children in the 1940s. Fewer were produced, which makes them harder to find today. In a time when most kits came only with white tissue, printed wood and plans, the Bilt-A-Set line box came chock full of parts and features like Assembly Line jigs for straight fuselage and nacelles, Speedlok Clamps, Die cut plywood or balsa parts sheet, die cut cardstock sheets, colored tissue, color printed national markings, clear window material, fully illustrated instructions and more. This kit has never been started. Parts are still as new, all in the sheets. 100% complete - all sheets, instructions and accessories present.

Revell Boeing B-52 Giant Stratofortress - Pre 'S' Kit 'Short' Box 1st Issue, 1/175, H207-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

$189   

First release dated 1954 in the low profile box (1" high vs. 1.5" high for later issues). Includes correct first issue globe stand with three parts instead of four. The instructions also show the three piece stand. The box has excellent color and gloss, four solid corners and no tape, tape marks, price tags or tag marks. Never started. All small parts are still factory bag sealed, and the kit is complete with all parts, decals and instructions. This is such an early issue that it has the earliest decal sheet which has an error. There is suppose to be a triangle on each side of the fuselage near the cockpit. The original sheet has just one of these - Revell had to issue a second decal sheet with the kit with another triangle on it. That extra decal sheet is present in this kit.
