Choroszy Navy Type 13 Carrier Attack Aircraft 2MT4 Hyro, 1/72, C09

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$42   

This is a superb high-definition resin model that is highly detailed. Features an excellent cockpit and much more. Includes full decals and paint guide. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags. The Type 13 was completed in 1923 and entered aircraft carrier service a year later. Because of it's superior performance, it was also developed as the Army Type 87 light bomber and there were even civil transport variants. This model is of the twin-float version developed in 1925. It was evaluated by the Navy at Kasumigaura along side the Nakajima-Breuget 19A.2B and the Kawasaki-Dornier Do-N but none of the three were accepted for Navy use. However, a modified version eventually became the prototype for the Type 13-2 Carrier Attack Aircraft B1M2. The B1M3 was officially accepted into navy use and saw service as an all-around combat aircraft in the Sino-Japanese war. After a highly respectable service record, they were replaced in 1938.

Azur Farman SNCAC NC-223.4 - Jules Verne The First Bomber To Hit Berlin / Le Verrier / Camille Flammarion - (NC223 4), 1/32, AIR006

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$155   

Rare. Beautifully molded with all fine recessed surface detail, very good cockpit and crew station and more. Includes paint guide and decals for well-known aircraft. Le Verrier is in the colors of Air France from 1942, Camille Flammarion also from Air France 1942 and Jules Verne as converted into a bomber by French Naval Aviation for a night mission over Berlin June 6/7 1940. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. From website weasponsandwarfair.com: The 223.4s were stationed at the Lenvéoc-Poulmic airfield, which became their operational base during the German offensive starting on May 10, 1940. The first mission took place on the night of May 13-14, in which the “Jules Verne” bombed the railway junctions of Aachen and Maastricht. Other missions followed to bombard Middelburg and other cities. The idea of an attack over Berlin was a retaliation for operation “Paula”: A German bombing operation against military target aside and in Paris. But bombing Paris as the Germans was way easier than bombing Berlin as the French; German lines were now just a few tens of kilometers from the capital, and while German Bombers were able to benefit from fighter escort, the French bombers couldn’t. However, Corvette Captain Henri Laurent Daillière was not a man to cancel such an operation because of his fear. The Jules Verne took off in the afternoon of the 7th of June, in order to arrive over Berlin in the middle of the night. It carried not only eight 250kg bombs, but also eighty 10kg incendiary bombs, stored in the fuselage. Going all the way through the North Sea, Denmark, and the Baltic sea, and using the city of Stettin (nowadays Szczecin, Poland) to find its way and turn to the right direction, the Farman managed to reach Berlin. In order to not be detected, it performed a fake landing preparation for Tempelhof airfield, making the Germans believe it was one of their aircraft. Flying at just 350 Km/h and at an altitude of just 100 meters, the Jules Verne finally found its target; it did not perform a terror raid, but an attack against a valid target: The Siemens factory of Berlin’s suburbs. As the aircraft dropped its payload (a long process; the eighty incendiary bombs had to be hand-dropped by two men), German anti-air artillery started to open fire; but the Jules Verne, after dropping all of its bombs (and the shoe of the bombardier, Corneillet, perhaps as a last “**** you” to Hitler) managed to escape, and safely landed at Orly airfield, near Paris, without having suffered significant damages. It safely landed at Orly airfield, near Paris, on the 8th of June morning, after eleven hour and forty minutes of flight; French newspapers did all relate the events, which ended up being an important propaganda success in the dark hours of June 1940. This was the first bombing of Berlin during the Second World War, months before the British made their first attempts (which would end more tragically) Following this action, Daillière and his crew were condemned to Death by Nazi Germany, and treated as pirates; to this they responded, in the pure tradition of Surcouf or Duguay-Trouin, that they were in fact corsairs.

Unicraft Martin-Baker Tankbuster, 1/72

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$38   

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

$34   

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

$39   

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

$115   

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.
