Pavesi Fiat G-91, 1/72

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$44   

Very rare. Pavesi was an Italian confectionery company that in the 1960s managed a series of motorway service stations. They still exist today and are famous for the "Pavesini" Biscuits. In the 1960s Pavesi had an awards program. You could accumulate points for buying certain products, then choose a prize. There were various gadgets, micro-ship models and eventually one series of four scale models. The firm of Plurex, located in Cornaredo (near Milan) was sub-contracted to make these. Plurex was an injection molder but had no experience in plastic modeling. The four Plurex aircraft were based on Airfix models but with certain changes, possibly to avoid copyright issues. They were supposed to be 1/72 scale, but different collectors have reported them as being significantly different, such as 1/82. However, it turns out that they really are 1/72 (see the notes at the end of this description). This exact issue was made as an advertisement and promotion for the Pavesi Service Stations, but there was a run of all four aircraft marketed in a transparent plastic bag with a header, exactly like the bagged Revell Air Cadet series and similar to the early Airfix kits. These issues only had the name of the subjects and not the service station and were marketed in various service stations in the Lombardy Region. Thank you to Italian model collector and historian Giampiero Grammatico for the information above! Here are the details of the actual kit pictured. The Italian text on the short box sides says (in English): "The sale of this item is strictly prohibited as part of the special offer. Complete the series of planes a unique offer for 4 perfect scale models." The other three models are A-4D Skyhawk, Mirage IIIC and Mig-21. Features very fine raised panel lines, recessed control surface lines, complete landing gear, two wing drop tanks, a clear canopy and complete decals for the box art aircraft. The model has never been started and is 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions (on the back of the box). There is a small piece of paper inside that is in Italian which translates to: "Dear friend, for you an exceptional Pavensi offer; a beautiful Fiat Jet to assemble. Nothing should be missing ... but if you do not find a few pieces in the bag, write to this address: Ditta Plurex Via Monsignore Moneta N. 23, 20010 Cornaradeo". Today (19-7-21) I received an update from collector and historian Giampiero Grammatico - "I compared the Fiat G.91 Pavesi with the Airfix and with the 1/72 scale drawings by Richard Caruana published on the Fiat G.91R, PAN, Y monograph published in 1991. it seems clear to me that the Pavesi model turns out to be absolutely in 1/72 scale. I also compared the other three subjects with the Airfix equivalents without opening the envelopes and the results, albeit with slight differences, are dimensionally identical. At this point I would say there is no longer any doubt that the scale used by Pavesi is 1/72." Again, many thanks to Mr. Giampiero for all his help on this manufacturer.

Precise Douglas Bendix Royal Canadian Air Force Sparrow II Missile For The CF-105 Arrow

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$550   

Very rare and historical piece from the CF-105 program weapons subcontractor, Douglas-Bendix. The Sparrow II was to be the weapons system for the supersonic CF-105 Arrow interceptor; please note the "R.C.A.F." on the body and Roundel on the fin. However, major problems prevented the Sparrow II from ever seeing operational service and played a small roll in the demise of the Arrow. Other systems were more expensive or less effective. The AWG-9 was offered, but was too costly. The Falcon was offered (and originally planned), but was not adequate. Thus this beautiful and capable aircraft was without a weapons system, which contributed to the ultimate cancellation. This very rare display model was made by Precise as a promotional item for Douglas and Bendix (the two main contractors). The missile is 6.5 inches long as is the clear base. It comes in the original shipping box with a two-sided information card on the missile. Condition is near mint - it has only been taken out of the box twice. Base upright reads 'Douglas Bendix Sparrow II'. No touch ups/repairs or cracks. Insurance required on shipping.

Mach 2 Leduc 022, 1/72, GP003

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$48   

Nicely molded for Mach 2 and features fine recessed panel lines, little to no flash and clear injection molded canopy. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. Please note that this kit did not come with any decals since the prototype usually had no markings. The final development of Rene Leduc's 1950s experiments with RamJet Power. The first experimental were the un-powered 010; these were the first aircraft to fly on ramjet power alone. Several accidents later, the program still showed promise so larger aircraft were built: the 021 and 022. The 021s completed their tests, and the unique 022 then flew 141 times. It has a centrally mounted turbo jet so it could take off on it's own power; 021 and 010 were carried aloft by a mother ship (Se-161). The turbojet in the 022 would accelerate it to ramjet operation speed. Fuel was stored in the round fuselage, but the ramjet consumed fuel so quickly that you had 10 minutes at the most at full power. The program was canceled in 1958 and Rene Leduc did not build further aircraft.
