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.

Guillows Messerschmitt Messerschmitt Bf-109 - 24 inch Wingspan for Free Flight or R/C, 1/16, 401

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$34   

SALE!! Still factory sealed and in investment-grade condition. From the 1970s. Large scale, well detailed model that can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight or converted to electric RC using modern small and light equipment. Well detailed with scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform engine cowl and spinner, full color decals, colored tissue, die cut balsa parts, rubber motor, plywood firewall and excellent full size plans. Guillow's founder, Paul K. Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.

AMT Triceratops Dinosaur, 8737

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$22   

Still factory sealed. From 1993. The scale and size are not given, but the box is 10 x 8.5 x 3 inches. In regards to the scale, Dusty Rhodes emailed me this- 'I understand from several sources the length of an adult Triceratops is supposed to be about thirty feet or so. So I'm thinking, if the box is anything like (most) AMT kits, the kit body length might be around 8 inches orsomething, which would put the kit possibly around 1/48. Now that's significant...Because it opens up all kinds of diorama possibilities with the Aurora armor series, in celebration of those 60's era comic books depictingSgt. Rock or somebody and his U.S. Army squad fighting dinosaurs. ' Fantastic!! Has this type of diorama been done yet?
