Alliance Focke-Achgelis FA-269, 1/72, 72021

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM


Rare and still factory sealed. Beautifully cast in high-definition resin. Conceived as a single-seat VTOL point-defense fighter, the Fa 269 project resulted from a design study order issued by the Reich Air Ministry to Focke-Achgelis in 1941. The order called for a local defense fighter which would combine the VTOL capabilities of a helicopter with the speed and economy of a conventional fixed-wing aircraft. A large amount of wind tunnel testing was undertaken, along with work on gearboxes, drives and power-pivoting mechanisms, and a full-scale mock-up of the aircraft was built to demonstrate the VTOL concept, but much of this was destroyed by Allied bombing raids and all work was shelved in 1944 when Focke-Achgelis estimated that there was little likelihood of a practical prototype being available before 1947. Design: A mid-wing monoplane, the Fa 269 was to have been powered by a single BMW 801 air-cooled radial engine buried in the fuselage behind the cockpit, which was to have driven transverse drive shafts in the leading edges of the fixed wing, the shafts turning three-bladed rotors via synchronised gearboxes. The plane of rotation of the rotors would have been capable of being swivelled through 80° using angled extension shafts. It was proposed that the Fa 269 would adopt a high angle of attack when at rest using extremely long undercarriage units. For vertical take-off, the rotors would be lowered till their plane of rotation was parallel with the ground. For translation to conventional flight following take-off, the extension shafts were to pivot to the rear, the rotors then behaving as pusher propellers.

Unicraft Martin-Baker Tankbuster, 1/72

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM


Still factory tape sealed. Rare. Nicely detailed, limited-run resin kit. the following history is from www.plane-encyclopedia.com: In early 1942, the Royal Air Force began seeking a new ground-attack aircraft that would replace the 40mm-armed Hawker Hurricane Mk.IID. An order was officially placed on March 7th for a specialized ground attacker that would be used against a multitude of targets including ground units, enemy aircraft, transports/shipping, and a main focus on destroying tanks. To accomplish the destruction of the aforementioned targets, the aircraft was meant to use more heavier guns than the Hurricane Mk.IID. Alternative weapon arrangements included: three 40mm Vickers S cannons, four 20mm Hispano Mk.V cannons, a combination of two 20mm with two 40mm cannons, six unguided rocket (RP) racks with two 20mm cannons or one 47mm Vickers gun with two 20mm cannons. Two 500Ibs bombs could also be added. The expected speed for the design had to reach at least 280mph (450 km/h) at 3,000ft (900 m). Visibility was also a necessity and forward view had to be unobstructed and clear. Full production was to be expected by 1944. The programs would be overseen by the Air Staff. Over 10 different designs by several aircraft companies were subsequently created for this program. A majority of them were of unorthodox design. Armstrong-Whitworth (AW.49) and Boulton-Paul (P.99) both created twin boom designs. Boulton-Paul also submitted a canard design labelled P.100 and a biplane design labelled P.101, the latter being seen as a safe alternative to the radical canard and twin boom designs prevalent through the program. Perhaps the most interesting of the designs was the submission by Martin-Baker. At the time of its submission, Martin Baker had been working steadily on their MB.5 project, which would eventually become one of the best performing piston aircraft built by Britain, but this wouldn’t be completed until 1944. Their design for the ground attacker was submitted several months after the order was given by the Air Staff and was only named the “Tankbuster”. Martin Baker’s concept was for a twin boom design that deviated extensively from the given requirements. The aircraft was armed with a single 6-pounder (57mm) cannon, and the aircraft would be completely encased in 1/2-inch armor. The armor itself weighed 4,900Ibs (2,200kg).The project wasn’t very impressive nor reasonable in the eyes of the Air Staff, especially compared to the other designs in the program. Its single large-caliber gun extremely limited its target range and it would only have been able to attack one of six predicted target types the program requested. The aircraft lacked any other offensive or defensive armament and would rely on its armor alone to protect itself, a gambit that other designs in the program resolved by following the armaments listed by the Air Staff. Attempts to add more ordnance such as additional guns, rockets or bombs to the wings would have added too much stress on the airframe. The main feature of the aircraft was the root of its problems, its gun. The gun itself couldn’t be removed from the airframe and an aircraft going into battle with a single weapon would be inefficient for resources. The Tankbuster didn’t meet the armament expectations and fell under the expected speed by 10mph (16 km a h). On April 15th, 1943, Air Marshall F J Linnell (who was a good friend of James Martin, a founder of the company) advised Martin-Baker to drop development of the Tankbuster in favor of continuing work on the more successful MB.5 project going on at the same time. Near the later days of April 1943, the Air Staff brought the program the Tankbuster was designed for to an end. They concluded that, at the time, developing and producing an entirely new ground attack aircraft would impede the current war programs and that the submissions were too specialized in design compared to modifying aircraft already being produced for ground attack duties.

Unicraft Cheranovsky BICh-17, 1/72

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM


Still factory tape sealed. Rare. Nicely detailed, limited-run resin kit. Boris I. Cheranovsky was an outstanding Soviet aircraft designer whose highly unconventional airplanes and gliders were always very advanced and often came ahead of time. Most of his designs utilized the parabolic wing and the tailless layout. The BICh-17 fighter design was started in 1935 and was to utilize the unique Kurchevsky APK recoilless cannon. Conceived as an all-wooden airplane it was to be powered with the M-22 (480hp) engine and use the well proven and previously designed parabolic wing. Two APK cannon were installed within the wing. Main landing gear was to be retractable towards the fuselage. The prototype was 60% ready when all programs were canceled in 1936 due to yet another of Stalin's "purges".

Unicraft Arado Ar.TEW.16/42-23, 1/72

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM


Still factory tape sealed. Rare. Nicely detailed, limited-run resin kit. The Ar.TEW.16/43-23 is unique to me because it looks like it is composed of common parts of many other more common aircraft; however, that is not true and it was an all new design. This fighter dates from 1943, and was to be of an all-metal construction. It featured swept-back wings, and two He S 011 turbojets were mounted beneath the wings. The fuselage contained three fuel tanks which were located behind the cockpit. The main landing gear rotated 90 degrees before being retracted forwards into the wing. As per the Ar TEW 16/43-13, a spherical tire was chosen for the front landing gear. The armament consisted of a single MG 151/15 15mm machine gun and two MG 213/20 20mm cannon, all located in the nose beneath the cockpit. This aircraft did not get out of the preliminary design phase; instead, design and production was concentrated on the Ar 234.

Legato Caproni AP-1 - Italian light Bomber, 1/72, LK055

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM


Still factory sealed and a very rare model. This is a high quality resin model and the only kit ever made of this aircraft. This history is from military-history.fandom.com: Developed from the Ca.301, a single-seat fighter version of a similar design that was not put into production, the AP.1 was a two-seater version, fitted with a more powerful Alfa Romeo radial. Designed to serve both as a fighter and an attack aircraft, it was a low-wing monoplane with a fixed, trousered (spats are when the wheels are covered, trousers cover the landing gear legs) undercarriage, of mixed construction. Although it was a monoplane at a time when many of the air forces of the world were flying biplanes, the Caproni was still an anachronism with fixed landing gear (at that time, most planes also had fixed landing gear). The AP.1 prototype first flew on 27 April 1934. An initial series of 12 aircraft was delivered within 1936. In the same year, the Regia Aeronautica ordered a second series with improvements including a more powerful Alfa Romeo engine and more aerodynamic landing gear. In service, the large landing gear spats were often removed for ease of maintenance. The Caproni AP.1 equipped a total of eight squadriglie (Italian air unit equivalent to half an RAF squadron) of the assault wings of the Regia Aeronautica. It took part in the Spanish Civil War, but its unsatisfactory performance led to its quick replacement with the also disappointing Breda Ba.64, Ba.65 and Ba.88 types. Four examples were acquired by El Salvador for use in the Escuadrilla de Caza (a fifth aircraft was shipped to replace an aircraft which crashed during a ferrying flight), and another seven were sold to Paraguay and used in the Chaco Postwar period (1939-1945). Another 10 aircraft ordered by Paraguay were diverted to the Regia Aeronautica.

Rare and out of production. Still factory tape sealed. Nicely detailed, limited-run resin kit. Two German "Parazite fighter" projects are known: Me.P.1073B and BV.P.175. The information on the latter is limited only to the original drawing kindly provided by Mr. Gary Webster and the fact that this fighter was to be powered by a single JUMO-004 turbojet, armed with two cannon (probably 30mm Mk.108), and have a wing span of 6.2m.

Unicraft Messerschmitt Libelle, 1/72

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM


Rare and out of production. Still factory tape sealed. Nicely detailed, limited-run resin kit. From Luft46.com: This Miniaturjäger (Miniature Fighter) project carried the "powered egg" design to the extreme. The short, egg-shaped fuselage held the single He S 011 jet engine and exhausted beneath a long boom which held the V-tail. The Messerschmitt "Libelle" (Dragonfly) also utilized a retractable, tricycle undercarriage. Details of what armament to be fitted are unknown.

AV Models Messerschmitt Lippisch Me-334, 1/72, AV7206

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Very finely molded in high definition resin and includes cast metal details and photoetched brass parts. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. From wickiland.com: Alexander Lippisch was noted for designing tailless aircraft, with a certain amount of success. Along similar lines as the rocket-powered Me 163, Lippisch designed a tailless fighter to be powered by a Heinkel turbojet. The slow pace of development of reliable turbojets forced Lippisch to redesign the aircraft to be powered by a single Daimler-Benz DB 605 inverted V-12 piston engine, mounted in the nose and driving a pusher propeller at the rear of the fuselage pod, via an extension shaft. The mid-mounted wings would have been swept back 23.4 degrees, housing the skinny retractable main landing gear with elevons inboard and ailerons outboard on the trailing edge. Slots in the outboard leading edges would have improved slow speed performance and handling. The intended armament of two 13 mm MG 131 machine guns was to have been housed in the wing roots. Designated Me 334 by the Reichsluftfahrtministerium (RLM), development was abandoned by Lippisch with the advent of the Lippisch P.20.

Planet Models Bolchovitinov S-2 - Soviet Attack Bomber Prototype, 1/72, 126

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Hard-to-find limited edition model finely cast in high definition resin. Features all fine recessed surface detail, twin clear vacuform canopies (in mint, never-yellowed condition), 'very good' cockpit detail and more. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. From William Pearce at oldmachinepress.com: With the intention of creating a high speed light bomber, Viktor Bolkhovitinov designed what is commonly referred to as the Bolkhovitinov S or Sparka. During flight trials the Soviet Air Force (VVS) referred to the aircraft as S-2M-103, for skorostnoy (high speed) with two M-103 engines; however, a number of other designations have been applied over the years. The common “Sparka” designation means twin—because the aircraft had two engines mounted in tandem. Other designations are BBS-1 for blizhniy bombardirovshchik skorostnoy (short range bomber, high-speed), BB for blizhniy bombardovshchik (short range bomber), and LB-S for lyohkiy bombardirovshchik-sparka (light bomber-paired). The Sparka was a low-wing aircraft of all-aluminum construction with stressed skin. The aircraft had a twin fin tail to increase the rear gunner’s field of fire. The undercarriage was fully retractable; the main gear retracted toward the rear, and the wheels rotated 90 degrees to lie flat within the wings. The pilot and navigator/bombardier/gunner sat in tandem under a long canopy. Between the pilot and second crew member was a small bomb bay for 882 lb (400 kg) of bombs. A plexiglass section on the bottom of the aircraft just aft of the bomb bay provided the bombardier a view of the ground. The aircraft was 43 ft 4 in (13.2 m) long and had a relatively short wingspan of 37 ft 4 in (11.38 m). The Sparka weighed 12,460 lb (5,652 kg). Development on the Sparka was abandoned in mid-1941, partially a result of the German invasion. However, further studies were made on the feasibility of the tandem engine arrangement powering a fighter, but these studies did not lead to the production of any aircraft. In addition, the factory where the Sparka was built was needed to produce the Petlyakov Pe-2 attack bomber.
