Maircraft Taylorcraft - Solid Wood Model Airplane, 1/48, S-17

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

Sold   

Maircraft was originally founded in the early or mid 1930s by Gordon Christoph and went by the name Aircraft Model Company. The company produced a typical line of solid 'profile cut' kits that required the usual high talent levels for carving and finishing. A former Comet Model Airplane & Supply Co. salesman, Jack Mair, bought the company in the early 1940s and renamed it Maircraft. This company was one of the handful of solid kit producers who issued models in a consistent 1/48 scale during the 1930s and 1940s (others included Hawk and Dyna-Model). This lead to one of the most desirable and rare model kits ever produced in the USA - the wood/plastic 1/48 United DC-3 model issued immediately after World War 2. Other than the P-61 and a few other Maircraft offerings, most were simple kits that sold for the low price of about 35 cents and gave the owners many hours of pleasurable work. This kit features a full size plan with instructions steps, fuselage that is about 80% cut, profile cut parts, printwood and a small bag of details. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

Sealsmodel Hashidate and Itsukushima ( Matsushima Class oProtected Cruisers) - Two Ship Kits, 1/700, SMP003600

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

Includes both cruiser kits. Very highly detailed and finely molded waterline models. The kits have never been started. They have been inventoried complete with all parts and includes flags and instructions. The Matsushima class consisted of three ships - Matsushima, Hashidate and Itsukushima. These three ships were the primary Japanese Naval force during the First Sino-Japanese War. On the advice of the French military adviser Louis-mile Bertin, these ships were light, fast, thinly armored but had a huge main gun. The first of the class was built in France and delivered in 1891. While the basic design sounded good, it was not workable in service. The boilers also proved defective, with Itsukushima's failing during the delivery voyage. It was only after a prolonged stay in Ceylon and a visit by a French emergency team that she eventually made it to Japan. The Japanese wisely upgrade the boilers but the basic design could not be changed. But as the most modern ships in the fleet, they were destined for very active service. In the First Sino-Japanese War, they were certainly enough to overwhelm the inferior Chinese ships. Although badly outdated, the sisters were also very active in the Russo-Japanese War.

Airfix BOAC Comet 4 Craftmaster Issue, 1/144, 5-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

Very early 1960s issue in fantastic 'excellent++' condition. Nice 1/144 scale kit of the world's first jet airliner. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including 'near mint' condition 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.
