Comet Douglas SBD-3 Dauntless - 20 inch Wingspan Flying Balsa Airplane Model, 3401

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

1970s reissue of the older kit. Kit features traditional wood/tissue construction, detailed full size plans, building instructions, hardware (if required), tissue and propeller. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. 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. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). 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.

Hasegawa Boeing B-47E Stratojet, 1/72, 1223

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Kit is very nicely detailed with fine panel detail, cockpit, open/closed bomb bay doors with internal iron bomb load, tail "stinger" and detailed landing gear with good well detail. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The B-47 was a very advanced aircraft at the time. The XB-47 first flew in 1947. The big jet's speed was equal to or greater than all current fighter aircraft, so it received radar-controlled twin 20mm cannons in the tail as the only guns. Through the use of mid-air refueling, the B-47 gave SAC it's first all-jet force for nuclear or regular bomb delivery. Although it was tricky to fly, Stratojets flew into the mid 1960s. A program to strengthen the wings for low-level attack was responsible for prolonging the service life.

Aurora 'Corsair' American Privateer With Sails, 1/128, 433-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

Dated 1963. Second issue with oval logo. Privateers were actually civilian ships manned by private citizens. The early US Government gave the ships 'letters of marque' and they were free to raid English shipping interests with the blessing of the US Government. Approximately 500 were in service until the practice was abolished. Although they were technically successful in raiding British shipping, the British soon blockaded the US ports and almost shut down the import/export trade. Well detailed kit of a very beautiful vessel. Full hull model includes detailed deck fittings, separately molded cannon, rigging instructions and diagrams, display stand, flag sheet, premolded rat lines and billowing vacuform sails. Molded in wood tan and black. Never started and complete with all parts, sails, flag sheet and instructions. Sails are 'excellent' but the instructions have some staining.

Revell Apollo Saturn V Moon Rocket - 46 inches tall, 1/96, H1843-1200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor

Sold   

Hard to find first issue from 1969. Mold quality is excellent as is typical with the first issue. (Molds become worn as reissued are made and detail becomes less crisp and flash appears.) This is the finest large scale injection molded kit of the legendary workhorse. Model actually comes apart and each sequence configuration of the Apollo Mission can be demonstrated with this model: Lift Off, 2nd stage, 3rd stage, separation, docking, lunar orbit, lunar module separation, lunar descent, lunar exploration, lunar lift-off, docking, starting for earth, separation, and reentry/recovery. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Cleveland Lockheed Hudson - 'Master Kit' For R/C or Free Flight, 1/16, SF-95

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

Over 49 inch wingspan. Ideal model for conversion to electric power and RC. This is the deluxe version including dope and paint in glass bottles. Very highly detailed and complete kit. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. The Cleveland Model and Supply Company played a pivotal role in the development of true scale models. In 1909 Bleriot’s English Channel flight caused a surge in aviation and model aircraft around the globe. Several companies were ideally positioned to take advantage of the aviation craze. In the USA, Wading River Manufacturing Co. (1909), White Aeroplane (1911), Ideal Model Aeroplane (1911), Broadfield Model Aeroplanes (1919) were among these pioneers, offering everything from plans and parts to complete kits and ARF models. Lindbergh’s 1927 crossing of the Atlantic Ocean caused an even bigger world-wide phenomenon called “The Aviation Craze” that extended up to the start of World War II. Many companies such as Megow, Guillow's and others started right around the time of Lindbergh’s flight. Some of these models flew and flew well, but they all had one thing in common - were generally not accurate scale representations. In 1929, a youngster named Ed Packard had a very advanced dream – to produce incredibly accurate, true scale models that flew perfectly. This radical idea established the world’s longest operating single-owner model airplane supply business – Cleveland Model and Supply Company. To this day, Cleveland models are treasured as the most accurate flying scale models produced. The fact that Mr. Packard started and successfully grew this business during The Great Depression is a testament to his ideals and business skill. I highly suggest the excellent book called ‘Aviation’s great Recruiter – Cleveland’s Ed Packard’ by H.L. (Herm) Schreiner. It is an excellent history of the man, his company and the times of the Golden Age of Model Aviation.

Berkeley Waco Cabin SRE Biplane - 35 Inch Wingspan For R/C or Free Flight, 4-13

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor

Sold   

Big 1/12 scale model with a 35 inch wingspan. Originally designed as a gas powered model for free flight or control line, or can be converted to electric power and modern RC (radio control) gear. Features metal cowl, decals, covering material, full size plans, formed wire parts, die cut balsa and plywood parts and more. The model has not been started. NOTE: missing wheels. Otherwise the kit is complete with all parts 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.

Comet Boeing B-29 Superfortress - 25.5 inch Wing Span Solid Model, 1/64, M3

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM++

Sold   

In the 1930s and 1940s, most modelers built the flying stick and tissue type models with rubber, co2 or gas power. But there were a small but measurable percent that built solid aircraft display models of great detail. This required great skill worth of the shipbuilders of old, especially considering the limited offerings. Many manufacturers issued blocks of wood and a plan - the famous (or infamous) 'Make Wood Look Like Plane' kits. A few manufacturers made expensive super detailed kits with metal accessories (like Dyna-Products). Comet came in the middle and struck a nice balance of detail and cost. 1944 issue in investment grade condition. The box is factory new. Inside, the kit has never been started and is 100% complete with all wooden parts, clear plastic blisters, black plastic wheels, decals (like new!), sandpaper, full plans, glue and a glass bottle of dope or sanding sealer. All original packing dividers and tissue is mint also.
