The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Berkeley is a very famous manufacturer of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.

ESCI TWO British 25 Pdr Mk. I Biship Tanks / TWO Churchill Mk.IV AMRCR / THREE Quad Gun Tractors / THREE Fiat-Ansaldo M13-40 Tanks, 1/72, 8042

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

SALE!! Includes all 10 kits in the boxes shown with decals and instructions. NOTE: Sold AS-IS and not inventoried. This collector was very meticulous and of his kits that I did inventory, 95% are complete. But he cut the sprue (trees) with the part numbers still attached to each number, so the parts are loose. Because of that, I have not inventoried these kits. NOTE: he very neatly built minor to major sub assemblies to "excellent++ to professional" quality. Most are minor, but occasionally there is major assembly. Again, these kits are sold not inventoried and AS IS hence the very low price.
