Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

Rare kit from the 1940s or very late 1930s. Every rarer in this condition - with a complete box and all contents never disturbed other than when I did the inventory.

Carl Goldberg was a gifted designer of model aircraft, and his career spanned the evolution of flying models. His designs and number of titles won in competition at the Nationals is legendary. His first competition was the 1928 Nationals, where he received honorable mention. By 1934 he won the indoor Nats and in 1935 he opened a Hobby Shop, among the first in the nation (the first one was probably opened by Cleveland Models Ed Packard). Awards came quickly. He wrote articles for Model Airplane News, and was Comet's top designer from 1939 till 1945. After Comet, he worked with Mike Schlesinger and Sid Axelrod on what eventually became Top-Flite Models. In 1955 he founded Carl Goldberg Models and released a still-popular line of scale, rubber, gas, glider and RC models. Needless to say, Goldberg's models are of the highest quality.

The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. Thanks to Dusty Rhodes for pointing out this excellent MARAD internet write up of this famous ship: SS President Wilson was a U.S. flag passenger ship (design type P2-SE2-R3), constructed by the Bethlehem Steel Company in Alameda, California and completed on April 27, 1948. Originally intended to serve in the U.S. Navy during World War II as the Admiral F.B. Upham, the U.S. Maritime Commission canceled its order for the vessel as the war was ending. In 1948, the ship was bareboat chartered to American President Line (APL) and renamed SS President Wilson. The shipping line bought the vessel outright on August 27, 1954.During its service with APL, President Wilson operated on a Pacific Ocean route, traveling from San Francisco to Los Angeles, Hawaii, the Philippines, China, and Japan before returning on the reverse itinerary. By the late 1950s, passenger liners were being eclipsed by jet airplanes as the preferred mode of trans-oceanic travel, but APL redirected its marketing efforts to pleasure travelers and continued its liner service well past the retirement of many of President Wilson's contemporaries.On February 1, 1964, while underway about 600 miles southeast of Tokyo, Greek cargo ship Agia Erini L. (formerly the liberty ship Richard J. Hopkins) transmitted a general message notifying all ships in the vicinity that there were cracks in the ship's hull and requested that all ships indicate their positions. The following day, the ship's crew sent another message stating that its condition was critical and requested that President Wilson, the closest vessel, come to its aid. The captain of President Wilson, J. D. Cox, immediately altered course and steamed toward the ship. Four other vessels in the area also changed course to assist the stricken ship.When President Wilson arrived, the crew found that Agia Erini L.'s condition had deteriorated and feared that the crew would soon have to abandon ship; in the early morning hours of February 3 the crew of the Green ship began to abandon their vessel. Earlier, two ships, SS Stolt Victor and SS Rolv-Jarl, had arrived on scene and Captain Cox directed the ships' crews to position their vessels downwind of Agia Erini L. in the case escaping crew members were swept away.Several crew members were able to escape the sinking ship via motor life boat, but the remaining began to jump over the side and into the sea. In response, President Wilson launched its #3 motor boat with a 13-man crew with Chief Officer Carl Larkin in command. Later, Larkin explained that his greatest concern was to avoid hitting any of the men with the boat's propeller. Just 45 minutes after Larkin and crew set out, they returned to President Wilson with 18 survivors. The master of Rolv-Jarl also joined the rescue effort and maneuvered his ship close to the lifeboat to create a wind-break. Rolv-Jarl also rescued the final eight Agia Erini L. survivors from the water.According to Captain Cox "the success of the operation rested entirely on Chief Officer Larkin and his crew." He also stated the operation was the most dangerous operation he had witnessed in more than 40 years at sea.President Wilson continued to serve as a passenger vessel for American President Line until it was sold to Oceanic Cruise Development, Inc. in April of 1973 and renamed Oriental Empress. In 1976, Oriental Empress was laid up in Hong Kong. In 1984 the ship was sold in Taiwan for scrap.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Excellent full hull model that is very well detailed. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The Mauretania and her sister Lusitania were considered the finest and most beautiful ships of the day, both inside and out. Launched in 1907, she quickly won the Blue Riband from the 'Kaiser Wilhelm II' for the fastest Atlantic crossing. For more than 22 years she was the Queen of the Atlantic liners. She saw extensive service in WWI as an armed cruiser, transport and hospital ship. In 1922 she was converted from coal to oil and set another record in 1931 when she crossed the Atlantic 4 times in one month. Sadly, she was scrapped in 1935 as the Queen Mary neared completion.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

1966 hardbox issue. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of their kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity.

In this case, they used the car at the Montagu Motor Museum in Brockenhurst, Hant, England. Features detailed chassis, complete motor and interior, spoked wheels and a removable hood or 'bonnet'.

Today this aircraft is very valuable and sought after by collectors and restorers.
