Monogram Speedee-Bilt Boeing PT-13 Kaydet Trainer, G5-100

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

Rare kit from 1957 in exceptional overall condition. This is a highly prefabricated, rubber-powered, wooden scale flying model kit. It features beautiful, completely finished Monofoil upper and lower wings, die-cut fuselage sides and formers that are factory painted yellow, precarved wooden parts, fully finished wheels, die-cut clear windscreens, prop and pilot bust, fully formed wire landing gear, rubber motor, sandpaper, tissue, decals and excellent instructions. The kit has never been started. Before there were plastic models, there were wooden aircraft kits. These usually came in two types - solid and stick and tissue. The solid models were static and usually contained a few blocks of balsa and sometimes a detail part or two. These "Make Wood Look Like Plane" models required a very high level of skill in carving and finishing. The stick and tissue variety were slightly easier to build and provided the ultimate thrill - they could fly when complete with rubber power (and later with free-flight gas and eventually RC). They still required a great deal of skill, so manufacturers sought ways to make model building more accessible to everyone. One idea was pre-carving and/or prefabrication. This raised prices, naturally. Many manufacturers launched lines of 'easy' to build flying models but only Monogram succeeded in making an entire line at an affordable price that would actual fly. The original "Speedee-Bilt" kits were in one-piece two-color boxes. In the early 1950s, shortly before plastic kits were available, Monogram changed to the 'hardbox' with a lithographic slick glued to the top as this kit. Speedee-Bilt kits contained die cut and pre painted wooden parts, completely formed airfoil wings, carved wheels and numerous plastic details like engine cowl, pilot, missiles, prop and more. Assembly was by detailed full size plans.

Revell Chris Craft Flying Bridge Cruiser - Pre 'S' Issue, 1/56, H302-98

Vaccuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

Rare first release from 1953 in a Pre-S box. The box is in investment-grade 'Near Mint' condition. This is quite possibly Revell's second ship model. It is very nicely detailed and molded in the beautiful and correct wood-grain swirl deep gloss brown plastic. Never started. The parts and all paperwork are still in the internal factory sealed bag; literally all the contents are factory sealed inside. The long-box USS Missouri was the first ship model that Revell cut their own molds for, and it was kit number H301-198. I believe this is their second native ship model since the number is H302. Predating both of these were some Revell marketed ships that were really Gowland and ex-Gowland molds from the small scale sailing ship series. Sometimes the earlier Gowland sailing kits had bottles included.

Never started. The parts and all of the paperwork are still in the internal factory sealed bag. Literally everything inside is still sealed. NOTE: the box is displays much better than the 'very good' grade, but it is rated as such due to a light stain and some damage on the lower long side and also a closed slit in the box tray (the bottom box).
