$155

Email for
availability.

Strombecker was very well known for producing the finest pre-carved hardwood aircraft and missile kits, but they had a very short journey into the plastic model field. They made a total of 5 molds for plastic injected aircraft kits, the 1956 Sea Dart being the first. All were discontinued in the mid 1960s. One kit is this excellent X-1B. It is the rarer of the two releases as it contains the pilots bust molded into the fuselage (the other one does not). Includes full instructions with three photos of the real aircraft, full color decals, Strombecker kit catalog and an application for the Strombecker Model-Makers Club. Kit features include landing gear, clear canopy and display stand. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The instructions and decals are in 'as new' condition.

Berkeley Bootstraps 1/2 A and Atwood 049 Engine PAA Load Model - Never Used

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$54   

This built up model was found in an avid builder's estate. The aircraft was completely built up and covered, and a new Atwood .049 engine installed (see close up photo of engine). Wingspan is about 38 inches. The model was never flown however. I have listed it as a PAA Load Aircraft (Pan Am Payload Competition Design) because the Bootstraps was approved for PAA Load Competition, it is very lightweight (6.8 oz with the motor!) and has old PAA markings on it. Although the aircraft has never been flown, it has light storage wear. The tissue is remarkably intact, with the only flaws being the two spots on the wings (see photograph). The Atwood 049 shown no signs whatsoever of being run and has excellent compression; however, I cannot guarantee that it will work. This would be an ideal model to either preserve or restore to electric R/C flight. The kit will be shipped with the wing and tail off. Because it is fragile, NOTE: shipping insurance is required.

Monogram Superkit Russian Mig-15 Jet Fighter, 1/60, T4

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$95   

Very rare plastic and precarved wood kit. Before there were injection molded plastic kits, model builders worked in wood or metal. Advanced companies, like Monogram, saw the advantage of plastic and began marketing kits with plastic details and fully-carved fuselage, wings, etc. This beautiful kit is one the highest quality composite static kits from the early to mid 1950s. Never started. Inside, the kit is as it left the factory with the small plastic parts still in the factory sealed 'crinkle' bag, unpunched factory painted balsa parts, finished balsa fuselage and wings, white acetate stand, clear windshield, sandpaper, instructions and decals. 100% complete.
