Fador 1909 EMF Single Seater / EMF Touring / EMF Roadster - 3 in 1 - Builds Your Choice Of Three, 1/16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Rare kit from about 1949. Very unique in that it may well be the first use of the term '3 in 1' when referred to a model kit. Big scale model is highly detailed for that time and measures 8.75 inches long when assembled. Includes parts and instructions for building one of the three versions listed. Features a large number of die-cut, machined and saw-cut wooden parts and excellent plastic wheels, grill/radiator, steering wheel, headlights, lanterns and horn. Also includes metal parts, metal stock and die-cut cardstock. Includes plans with four elevation drawings, a great many detail drawings, templates and even the correct tufting pattern for the seats! Extensive text instructions are furnished also and there is even a detachable tonneau and detailed painting instructions. The kit has never been started. NOTE: Missing (1) very fine paper strip (easily made). Not missing another parts. The rear differential has been painted. There is no other painting or assembly. NOTE: plans and instructions are a 78% size photocopy of the original on many 8.5"x11" sheets of paper. The EMF 30 was produced by the EMF company which stood for Everett, Metzger and Flanders - the three owners. But in the early days it was jokingly referred to as 'The Every Morning Fix It" and "Every Mechanical Failure." Each car came complete with a catalog numbering every single part, which made replacements easily obtainable. The engine was four cylinders and turned out a very respectable 30 horsepower. It had a 106 inch wheelbase and held 15 gallons. All cars were painted EMF Red and were a sight to behold. The EMF 30 price with standard equipment was $1250 and included acetylene headlights, generator, side oil lamps, tail lamps, lamp brackets, tube horn, tire repair kit and magneto. Fador was another maker of big 1/16 classic cars and competed with the bigger Hudson Miniatures. Fador called the line 'Smallersters' and the design & parts breakdown of the kits are very similar. The full name was Fador Mfg. Company and the address was 501E. Clinton St., Elmira, NY. Hudson Miniatures, launched in 1948, apparently beat Fador to the market by at least a year or more. Hudson's national success probably lead Fador to choose the same subject (antique cars) and in the same scale, 1/16. Hudson snatched up the most obvious classic automobiles for kit subjects, forcing Fador to select very carefully. Fortunately, they chose well and they are still the only models ever made of these subjects. There is no record of Fador making any plastic kits; the introduction and overwhelming popularity of the Revell/Gowland Highway Pioneers and the models that quickly followed probably drove them out of the market. This was the fate of most wooden kit manufacturers who did not make the transition. In 1949 the Fador line consisted of a 1909 Hupmobile Roadster, 1904 Cadillac Runabout, 1905 REO 4 Passenger Runabout and one kit that was "3 In 1' - it made one of the following: 1909 EMF Single Rear Seater, 1909 EMF Touring or EMF Roadster. The Baker Electric kit was introduced in 1950 and possibly others as well.

Monogram F-51D Mustang Action Model (P-51) - Four Star Issue, 1/32, PA77-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

Sold   

Still factory sealed and in investment-grade condition. First issue of this classic large-scale 'Action Model.' Canopy opens and closes to show highly detailed cockpit. Tiny levers under the wings drop 2 bombs. Knob on the bottom rotates and extends/retracts main gear and tailwheel; all gear doors including tailwheel open and close automatically with the gear. Not only do these features sound great, but they work. My built kit is 30 years old and functions like new! Great detail. This kit has an interesting history. In 1961, Monogram introduced the 1/32 scale Phantom Mustang. This was a very ambitious project. The kit was transparent, highly detailed and included two electric motors. One motor raised and lowered the main gear and tail wheel while the other spun the prop. Two small levers on the base dropped bombs from the wings. It was molded in clear, silver, black, red and zinc chromate green. Although successful, the kit was expensive to produce and Monogram charged a hefty retail price of $4.98. As a way to create more revenue from the molds, Monogram cleverly created this kit - using some of the same molds as the Phantom Mustang. The silver parts tree was completely re-cut and does not match the Phantom version. The red stand, gears and motorizing features were simply left out and the model molded in solid colors. The gear retraction/extension features was retained, but not motorized. On the new silver parts tree they added a small knob (placed on the bottom of the wing) and the same for the bomb dropping mechanism. This lowered the price to $1.98 and this additional revenue hopefully helped pay down the original mold costs.

Guillows Curtiss P-40 Warhawk - 27 inch Wingspan Gas/RC/Rubber Powered Balsa Wood Kit, 1/16, 405-500

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

In rare investment-grade 'Near Mint' condition inside and out. Purchased new on May 23, 1967 in Northern Ohio. One of a very popular 1/16 scale series with a 27 and 7/8 inch wingspan. Stick-and-tissue flying model designed for gas power, radio control (RC) or rubber power. Features quality die cut balsa parts, stripwood and spars, excellent plastic nose, spinner, exhaust, radiator cowl, outer gear well parts and much more, beautiful clear vac canopy that is still like new, die-cut plywood parts for gas operation and U-Control, fully formed wheels and thrust button, rubber motor, plastic prop, metal prop shaft and hardware packet, U-Control line, metal stock, a very large decal sheet in 'new' condition, superb plans with instructions and covering tissue. The kit has not been started and is complete. Guillow's founder, Paul K. Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.
