Airfix DH Comet 4B Dan-Air Skyking Series, 1/144, 03170-7

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$42   

Very nicely detailed and molded kit from the 1970s. Includes colorful Dan-Air London decals. Includes clear windows, full landing gear, display stand and passenger boarding stairs. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The initial Comet Is were in operation long before the 707, which gave the British an incredible post-war lead in the expanding civil aviation market. Just as the Comet was flying high and orders were pouring in from around the world, Comets began to mysteriously fall out of the sky. Everything from lighting to terrorist bombs were blamed. For months the root cause went undiscovered. Then, in a landmark investigation that is considered the first modern post-crash autopsy, it was discovered that the stresses around a small ADF window on the top of the fuselage were causing metal fatigue failure when the fuselage was pressurized. To confirm this, a Comet I was placed in a water tank and subjected to pressurization stresses. After some time, a dramatic failure occurred. Then parts of a crashed Comet were pulled from underwater proving once and for all that this was the root cause.

Airfix Short Sunderland III, 1/72, 06001

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

$29   

Still factory sealed but the seal has drawn the box top concave. Kit features beaching gear, rotating turrets with elevating guns, movable control surfaces, external bomb load and rotating props. The Sunderland's 21-year record with the RAF has made it a legend. Derived from the Empire Class Flying Boat Airliners, Sunderland IIIs had a top speed of 210 mph and an endurance of 12 hours. These qualities made the Sunderland a superb platform for North Sea and North Atlantic patrols, ASW and SAR. Crews usually loved the airplane; its large size afforded many airborne comforts that bomber or fighter crews could only dream of, such as bunk, a head and an area for food preparation.

Esoteric Navy Northrop BT-1, 1/72, NAF-16

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed

$44   

The BT-1 was the first Northrop aircraft for the US navy. John Northrop had just formed his aircraft company in 1929, and back then a government contract was the best way to stay in the business. The BT-1 was a scaled down Army A-17. 54 were produced, and the aircraft resulted in the creation of the famous SBD Dauntless dive bomber by Douglas when they acquired Northrop. Still factory sealed. Very high quality kit with metal parts and full decals. Esoteric kits were perhaps the finest vacuform kits made. The molding quality rivaled or surpassed most injection molded kits. Includes full interior detail. Complete and never started.

The aircraft was loved by aircrews and was responsible for training the nucleus of WWII US Naval Aviation. Esoteric was known for making perhaps the finest vacuform kits.
