Monogram Speedee-Bilt F-84 F-51 and Superkit F-51 (P-51) F-84 - Little Air Force Assortment Gift Set

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$795   

Very rare 1950s gift set. Long before injection molded kit were mass produced in the USA, Monogram created what are widely considered the finest pre-fabricated wooden kits with plastic details. The Speedee-Bilt series were flying models with pre-painted and cut wooden parts with plastic props, cowls, pilots, etc. The Superkits were smaller static models with precarved wooden parts and many plastic details. The kits themselves are rare today, but the gift set is very rare. Monogram issued very few gift sets for injection kits, and even fewer in the early 1950s for the wooden kits. The gift set consists of a special 'Christmas' box with a tray and lift-off top with a cello window. This one contains 2 Superkits (F-84 Thunderjet and F-51 Mustang) and 2 Speedee-Bilts (also the F-84 and F-51). The outer box is intact with the original cello and is in 'very good' displayable condition but is not perfect. It has edge wear, general wear, light staining (visible at the upper left) and two closed split corners. The four kits inside are in mint boxes and have never started. Each is 100% inventoried complete with all parts,decals and instructions present.

From Dusty Rhodes: The battleship Iowa was a significant improvement over the Indiana Class. With higher freeboard, Iowa was the first US battleship designed for high seas battles. Armament layout and other advances were significant also. Iowa played a central role in the Cuban Blockage and at the Battle of Santiago de Cuba in 1898. She was slightly damaged by 152mm fire from Spanish cruisers and one of those, Vizcaya, actually struck to Iowa after receiving punishing main battery fire. After the Spanish-American War, Iowa was upgraded and continued to see duty including that of guardship at Chesapeake Bay in WW I. As a radio-controlled target ship in 1923, she was noted for deftly out-maneuvering Army aircraft. Ultimately Iowa (now Coastal Battlship No. 4) was sunk during Fleet Problem I in February 1923 by 3 x 14" hits from Mississippi. In honor of the ship's role at Santiago, a 21-gun salute was rendered as the crews of Mississippi and other BBs present lined the rails.
