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.

Revell 1913 Mercedes Highway Pioneers - Series 4, 1/32, H54-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


1954 original issue of the famous Highway Pioneers 'Foreign Car' series. These issues feature the same 5 car artwork on every box; the only way to identify the contents was an ink-stamped name on the box ends. Molded in gloss dark green plastic. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions present. These kits have a fascinating history. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream and never made the top 10 list of boys activities. Spurred on by the nation-wide aviation craze in the 1920s, many became modelers and built flying or static wooden models of airplanes, ships, trains, automotive and other subjects. Basic kits existed, but many of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s when the Gowland & Gowland/Revell Highway Pioneers became the sales sensation of the year. Demand was so great that the factories could not keep up and almost overnight 'model building' was mainstream. The phenomenon of the 'Highway Pioneers' kits was a significant force in proving that model building as a hobby could have mass appeal, provided that the kits were easy enough to build and finish. These 1/32 scale vehicles fit the bill: they could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real cars. The success of the Highway Pioneers lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the late 1950s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys...and many adult males too!

Universal Thunderbolt P-47, 1/43, A3

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+


Very rare model from about about 1942/3. It is a completely pre-fabricated multi-media kit; No painting is required and all parts are formed to final shape. It features fully carved and painted hardwood fuselage, carved and painted main gear wheels and struts, heavy, die-cut red and black cardstock wings, tail feathers, gear doors and other details, and cylindrical hardwood dowels for machine guns and gear door actuators. The cardstock wings have top and bottom halves and when placed over the main spar they are 3D with an airfoil. Never started. The kit has been inventoried and NOTE: missing one piece of die-cut cardstock, the main wing spare. Easily made since there is a perfect pattern: the sheet is present where it was neatly die-cut from. Otherwise includes all other parts and instructions. NOTE: the instructions have bug damage, but not enough to interfere with assembly. Also note: while a historical bit of modeling, this is not a scale model. It is in the middle-ground between being a toy and a model. Universal Toy and Novelty Company was located at 1225 South Wabash Avenue in Chicago Illinois. Although they were around for decades and had extensive production, little is known about the company. When model kits became popular in the 1920s during the early aviation craze, they were quick to jump on the bandwagon. In the 1920s they are also know for a fine series of baseball cards. Other model kits were of ships, tanks, etc. and some had incredibly colorful box designs like the Cruiser Chicago and some landing craft.
