Ideal Aeroplane & Supply RMS Queen Mary Ocean Liner- 32 Inch Long Wood and Metal Model, 1/380, 603

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

Ideal was a famous producer of early model kits. In 1911 they released their first aircraft kit, which put them among the first USA model companies. Ideal was unique also in that they released large ocean liners, giving us the only big scale SS Normandie, SS America, Rex and RMS Queen Mary models ever made. This model is from 1938. The Queen Mary measures almost 32 inches long when assembled. It has a pre-carved solid wood hull, numerous cast metal fittings such as lifeboats, davits, stairs, winches, etc, assorted wooden stock, many printwood sheets and printed cardstock. The plans are full size and very good. The assembly procedure is detailed in writing and with the drawings. Sectional profiles are included as well as detail views. The kit has not been started. All small parts are still sealed in the factory bags and all other parts and plans have been inventoried complete.

Sterling Aeronca C-3 - 36 inch Wingspan for Free Flight or R/C, A25

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG-

Sold   

36 inch wingspan kit for free flight, radio control conversion (RC) or control line. Features die cut balsa parts, die-cut plywood parts, vacuform engine, cowling and other detail parts, completely formed scale wheels, metal and nylon hardware for the gas powered version, pre-formed metal gear struts, rubber, tissue, prop, full size plans, other wood stock as needed and a very large color decal sheet. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling models to be deluxe kits as they were very complete.
