Aurora-Heller Bucker Bu-133 Jungmeister - Swiss Civil or Luftwaffe Trainer, 1/72, 6612

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Unusual Aurora-Heller kit. One of Aurora's last efforts was to market quality Heller kits with the 'Aurora-Heller' name. It was a good fit because Heller made quality kits but did not have the extreme marketing reach that Aurora had in North America. The kits could obviously be produced without a significant capital expense for Aurora since Heller had already cut the molds. Heller molded the kits in France, shipped them to the USA, and Aurora added instructions and a box. Although this was a good idea, Aurora's problems went much deeper and it certainly was not enough to save the company. This kit has not been started. Very nicely detailed with rigging instructions and decals for either aircraft. The parts are still in the factory sealed bag with decals and instructions.

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.

Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.

Competition Models Inc Sal Taibi's Starduster - Gas Powered Free Flight Model

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

Large wingspan kit for .02 to .074 engines. This is one of the famous Sal Taibi's National award winning designs. Sal was one of the early 'Kings of Gas Free flight' and a very gifted designer. The model is from the 1950s. This model came from the estate of a very active and particular early aircraft kit collector. It is like factory-new inside and has not been started. Complete with all parts, plans and decals (if originally included). Designed for 'Sniffing Thermals', the honored pastime of a generation of model enthusiasts. Flying model aircraft predated powered flight; however, balsa wood and printwood were not introduced until the early 1930s and the hobby took off, as well as the hunt for thermals. Gas flight began in the early 1930s, and powered models (most all driven by Brown engines) took home so many awards that they were forever separated in competition from rubber powered models. Design of gas models was tricky since RC (radio control) models could not yet be applied to the mass market; so a gas model had to not only fly and climb under power, but then glide sufficiently - all in a stable fashion and without any operator inputs once the airplane took off.
