Sterling Messerschmitt Bf-109G Drops Bomb In Flight - 17 inch Wingspan Free Flight / Control Line, A18-149

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

17 inch wingspan kit for rubber free flight or control line. Includes innovative system for dropping a bomb in flight. Stick and tissue model featuring quality die-cut balsa parts, stripwood and spars, other wood stock as required, clear vacuform canopy (still in mint condition and not even yellowed), vac plastic details including radiator intake, spinner, pilot bust, side air scoop, exhaust ports, bomb and more, finished wire landing gear struts, finished main and tail wheels, rubber motor, plastic prop, covering tissue and a full color decal sheet. Includes excellent full size plans with detailed instructions. Never started and inventoried complete. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling's offering to be 'deluxe' compared to other manufacturers.

Air Lines Martin Marauder II (B-26C) RAF - (Frog), 1/72, 12902

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Purchased new in 1965 in Cleveland, Ohio. Quality Frog kit - no rivets, just fine panel lines for a realistic model. Features separately molded rudder, elevator and ailerons, pilot and gunner figure and detailed engines with rotating propellers. Inventoried with all parts, decals and instructions. Please NOTE that one prop blade is broken at the hub base but is present. This box has some of my favorite Jo Kotula boxart. Kotula originally did 1930s covers for the magazine 'Model Airplane News' and later the Aurora box art of the late 1950s. Air Lines kits are all Frog molds that the Lines Brothers imported to the USA between 1964-1966. The kits, decals and instructions were made in England, then imported to the USA where Testors created the boxes with the colorful trading cards on the back. There are one or two trading cards on each box which show the boxart but not the advertising/logo. Some kits contain a Testors color painting guide also, but it is not specific to any model.
