AMCO Baku Geki Ki-99 - Japanese Navy Dive Bomber - Official Identification Model Kit Build For Victory - Solid Wood Model From WWII - Comet - (Type 99 Val), 1/72, IA-17

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+


1940s WWII wooden kit from AMCO, which was a division of Comet. Features all hardwood parts including blocks & wood stock, sandpaper, CASCO glue, a full size cardstock template and patter sheet and highly illustrated double-sided assembly instructions. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts and paperwork present. This is an official identification model. The US Armed Forces found themselves in a World War with almost no ID models. Someone decided that it would be perfect to let the air-minded modeling youth build them for the military, and thus the "Identification Model" was born. However, the idea did not last as the quality ranged from excellent to horrible, with the majority on the later side. A much better substitute was found by casting one-piece models out of a hard rubber plastic. Little did anyone know that this was a foretaste of the doom of the solid wood scale model, which was replaced by plastic in the early 1950s.

Maircraft Bellanca Cruisair - Solid Wood Model Airplane, 1/48, S-5

Vaccuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


Maircraft was originally founded in the early or mid 1930s by Gordon Christoph and went by the name Aircraft Model Company. The company produced a typical line of solid 'profile cut' kits that required the usual high talent levels for carving and finishing. A former Comet Model Airplane & Supply Co. salesman, Jack Mair, bought the company in the early 1940s and renamed it Maircraft. This company was one of the handful of solid kit producers who issued models in a consistent 1/48 scale during the 1930s and 1940s (others included Hawk and Dyna-Model). This lead to one of the most desirable and rare model kits ever produced in the USA - the wood/plastic 1/48 United DC-3 model issued immediately after World War 2. Other than the P-61 and a few other Maircraft offerings, most were simple kits that sold for the low price of about 35 cents and gave the owners many hours of pleasurable work. This kit features a full size plan with instructions steps, fuselage that is about 80% 3D cut, profile cut wings and tails, wood stock as required and a small factory sealed paper envelope of details. Never started. The small parts are still sealed; the larger parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete and includes excellent step-by-step text and illustrated building instructions and full-size three-view plans with fuselage and wing templates.
