Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Features 19 inch fuselage length, 21.25 rotor diameter, quality balsa printwood, strip stock, formed wheels, covering material and full plans. The kit has never been started and is complete. The entire Comet 1950s "N" line included the following (gaps mean there is no kit, at least at that time): N1 Tiger Shark P-40, N2 F-86D Sabre Jet, N4 Globe Swift, N6 Taylorcraft, N8 F-51 Mustang, N9 Helicopter, N11 Ryan Navion, N12 Firefly, N15 Piper Cub, N16 Fokker DVII, N17 Spad, N24 Phantom Fury, N25 Aeronca K (floats) and N26 Stinson SR-7. Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft).

Joe Ott North American Mustang P-51B - Ott-O-Former - 40 Inch Wingspan, 4001

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

From the mid-1940s and very rare, especially in this condition.. The Joe Ott designed 'Ott-O-Former' series was the height of the classic stick and tissue flying model kits not just in box art but in contents. The large wingpspan kits were the top of the Joe Ott line and had a price tag to match, which makes them harder to find today, since fewer were produced. In a time when most kits came only with white tissue, printed wood and plans, the Bilt-A-Set line box came chock full of parts and features like beautifully printed Ott-O-Formers to speed up fuselage construction, Ott-O-Fromer assembly jigs and other parts as well, high-quality full length spars and strip wood, light-weight hardwood wing ribs, plywood propeller, fully carved and finished main and tail wheels, metal propeller/rubber shaft, propeller bearings, clear windscreen material, two colors of covering tissue, color printed national markings, pilot bust and squadron insignia, fully illustrated instructions and more. There is even a tube of very colorful Jo Ott Model Airplane Cement included (never opened, but dried up). This kit has never been started and is like it left the factory. The spars and stringers are still held together with the factory adhesive paper. All small parts are still in the factory small paper bag. The parts are still all in the sheets; none have been punched out. 100% complete with all parts and the plans in 'very good++' condition. The box top had several split corners and short tears and I have repaired them all correctly from the inside with cardstock and book binding glue.

Monogram Phantom Huey UH-1B Chopper Motorized with Sound, 1/24, PA226

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

SALE!! Rare. First issue dated 1969. Large and completely transparent with a 20 inch long fuselage and nearly 2 foot rotor diameter. Well detailed with 184 parts and structural members and full internal detail. Features complete cockpit, pilot and co-pilot figures, full cabin, opening cabin door, inner fuselage framing, detailed engine and more. In the display base with the batteries is an electric motor which turns the main and tail rotors while the sound unit makes "chop-chop" sound that varies correctly with main rotor speed. To minimize painting, the kit is molded in clear, zinc chromate green, black, chrome plate, gray, olive drab and flexible black/gray ammo belts. The clear fuselage halves have no breaks or cracks, they are mint. The kit has never been started. Inside, the original red cardboard presentation material is complete and in 'excellent+' condition. All parts have been inventoried 100% complete including motor, hardware, wire, decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the decals have bug damage to the backing paper and some transfers have damage also; I have included two sets of excellent reproduction decals with complete instructions: one on clear decal paper and the other on white decal paper. The Phantom Huey box tops are thin, fragile and easily damaged. This one is no exception- it is 99+% complete, but I have correctly repaired two split corners and two closed tears (on the short sides) from the inside, using cardstock and book binding glue. The box bottom has three closed split corners. NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured.

Miniature Masterpieces Wells Fargo Stage Coach - with Driver / Messenger and Four Horses, 1/48, K501-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Rare early 1950s original issue that is molded in dark wood brown. Like all Miniature Masterpieces kits, this one is very finely engraved and molded with excellent detail. The model includes detailed instructions (rare for the early 1950s) and a wonderful history of this Stage Coach. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. 'Miniature Masterpieces' was formed through an alliance of Lew Glasser (Revell) and Steve Adams (Adams Action Models) in 1953. Although having the appearance of an independent company, the firm was run by Revell down to the prototypes being made at the Revell plant. However, there was no evidence of the parent company on the surface. The State Coach of England was the first kit, issued in 1953. More kits of excellent quality followed. Revell completely took over the line in 1954, making the one-year original issues very rare.

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Dated 1962 and the first issue of this classic 'Action Model' with great detail and mold quality. Features opening canopy to show the highly detailed cockpit, tiny levers under the wings drop 2 bombs, a small knob on the bottom rotates and extends and retracts the main gear and tail wheel; all gear doors including tail wheel open and close automatically with the gear. Not only do these features sound great, but they work. My built kit is over 50 years old and functions like new! Molded in silver, black and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The decals and instructions are both in 'excellent++' condition. Please NOTE that the box is only graded 'good'; it has wear as shown and bug damage mainly on the corners and edges. 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.

1985 issue as a tie-in with the famous movie. Very large 1/24 scale kit is over 19 inches long when built.

The results is a wonderfully detailed kit with full interior, two pilots, full instrument panel and radios, detailed engine and transmission, opening cabin doors, and rotating main and tail rotors. Includes XM-16 armament subsystem with quad 7.62 mm machine guns with ammunition belts and two LAU 32A/A (Aero 60) rocket pods. Molded in olive drab, silver, flexible black and clear. Never started.
