Renwal SSB(N)-608 Ethan Allen Polaris Launching Nuclear Submarine, 1/200, 652

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Fantastic Cold-War artwork on this early issue. From the early 1960s judging from the newer Renwal logo at the upper left. The Ethan Allen was the lead submarine of her class. These replacements for the George Washington class had 16 tubes as before, but could carry the Polaris A-1, A-2 and A-3. Classic large (24" long) SSBN kit actual fires a spring-loaded Polaris Missiles from the hull launch tube. Highly detailed and well molded for that time. Starboard hull halve hinges down to reveal full interior detail for each compartment. There is no assembly but NOTE: one bulkhead and the bunk sheets on one part have minor painting. There is no other painting. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the box displays better in the photo than the 'Good+' grade; I have graded it such because there are fine scratches in the box top litho on and ahead of the sail.

Comet Stinson 150 Voyager Struct-O-Speed - 12 inch Wingspan Flying Airplane, 2204-50

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

Purchased new in 1972 from National Hobby in Ohio. Comet would advertise that the Struct-O-Speed series 'Puts Itself Together...That Quick!' on the box top, and it was not a completely idle boast. These kits were very highly prefabricated for their time, and in comparison to the regular stick and tissue models, the claim is not unfounded. Kit features die cut wood that is factory painted, formed and finished wheels, plastic prop, rubber motor and detailed instructions with flying tips. Complete and never started. 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.
