Megow The Cadet 51.5 Inch Wingspan Early Gas Free Flight Aircraft, E-17

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$425   

Very, very rare. From the early 1930s. Notice that the motor is referred to simply as 5/8" bored engine. There is no record of a public sale of this kit since the mid 1990s and no public photo of one until now. It is safe to say that only a handful are left. Fred Megow once stated that they lost money on the big gas models (like this Cadet) and sold very few; they were done for status only. The box top and tray are in exceptional condition given the age of the model. The box top and litho are both 100% intact, although the corners are taped due to splits and the litho has stains as shown. The tray is better with no splits. This is an incredible kit for that time with a high degree of prefabrication- "Can Be Built In A Few Evenings!" at the box says and it is true. Features ready-carved, completed hollow wing leading edges from a single block of balsa, conical monocoque fuselage, universally acceptable motor mounting, special wing mounting that protects the model (the wing will fly off loose undamaged in case of a collision), realistic cabin, high aspect ratio, solid, factory cut tail, high quality printwood, spars, stripwood and sheet wood, balsa blocks as required, metal stock, finished rubber tires with wooden hubs, the original paper envelope including all hardware, embossed and outlined aluminum sheet including lower, top and nose cowls, beautiful fuselage-length 'CADET' insignia in black and silver, covering material, huge, detailed plans and even a four page, illustrated brochure by Maxwell B. Bassett (Pioneer Gas Model Builder and Designer) called 'Flying Gasoline Powered Models.' Even the original cardboard dividers and inserts are present. There is no assembly but NOTE: 20 wing ribs are cut out to 'professional' quality. All other parts are uncut. Carefully inventoried and NOTE: missing the prop blank and fluids. The factory rubber bands disintegrated. Otherwise includes all other items, insignia and paperwork.

Pocher Fiat 130 HP Grand Prix de France 1907, 1/8, K70

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$565   

Pocher made the finest automobile models ever created. The detail and working parts on these long out-of-production, big 1/8 scale kits is amazing. Recommended for experienced modelers only. This kit is a perfect reproduction of the original car that won 1st place at the 1907 Grand Prix de France with an average of 113.612 KPH with Felice Nazzaro as the pilot. The prototype of this car was used with the original drawings to create this model. It has 823 parts of plastic, brass, steel, leather, iron, rubber, copper, aluminum and other materials. Features include super detailed engine, opening hood, complete interior, all pilot controls, operating steering, working suspension, operating steel drive chains and more. The kit has never been started. Almost all the parts are still in the factory sealed bags; but several bags had torn open due to age. So I inventoried those bags and they are complete. I taped them shut for safe transport or put the parts in a new ziplock. Includes complete instructions and decals. Shipping insurance (and Express Mail for international customers) is required.

Nicely detailed and well molded featuring complete 327 CID Fuel Injection engine and detailed engine compartment, opening hood, exhaust, suspension and chassis detail, steerable front wheels, complete interior, headlights that open and close and more. Molded in beautiful bright gloss red, black, clear and chrome and with real rubber tires. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. The kit has had the following very neat sub-assemblies built. The quality of the build and paint is in parenthesis with the build quality first. The format is (build quality/paint quality): Engine built and put into frame (professional/near mint), battery and overflow tank (pro/near mint), air intake assembly and radiator assembly (pro/near mint), some front suspension parts and steering box (pro/near mint), master cylinder built and painted but not installed (near mint/excellent+). There is no other assembly. There is other painting as described: minor interior trim (pro to 'very good'- which is only because it needs a second coat. There is just one thin coat), WSWiper blades (pro), front and rear windshield reveal molding and vent window frames, all on the body (pro to excellent++), black weatherstrip around those (excellent to only 'good'). I did not see any other paint but there could be other minor parts painted.
