Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$159   

Large, high quality kit in the agreed museum scale of 1/16. Rugged design is almost completely wood covered - there is little to no tissue used. Originally designed as a .09 to .19 gas powered model for control line, or can be converted to electric power. Features full metal cowl, plastic dummy engine, shock mounted landing gear, full size plans, die cut balsa and plywood parts, shaped leading and trailing edges, metal hardware, formed wire landing gear, wheels and much more. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. Berkeley is a very famous manufacturer of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Most all Berkeley kits contain a high degree of prefabrication to speed up assembly. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.

Aurora Messerschmitt Me-109 - Brooklyn Issue Bf-109 - Famous Fighters of All Nations, 1/48, 55-59

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$429   

Very rare first issue. Of Aurora's 'Original Brooklyn 8,' this is usually considered the hardest one to find. Inside, the kit is 100% correct with no rivet detail, no bombs and no landing gear. The color is the unique first run non-metallic medium red with clear canopy and stand. The stand is the correct square one marked 'Brooklyn.' The instructions are correct Brooklyn also, and the decals are the proper early 'Tatem Company' issue with the swastika. The box has very good color and gloss, no fading, no tears, no price tags or tag damage, no tape (except for the factory sealing tape, of course) and is 100% intact with no split corners or repairs but only grades 'good' due to the scuffing on the left top side as shown, the litho chips (to the left of 'scale', below 'model' and on the far right lower corner as shown) and some small similar chips on the sides. This kit has never been started. It has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts in perfect condition, amazing 'near mint' decals (best I have ever seen on a Brooklyn issue and 'very good++' instructions with yellowing as the main flaw. This kit must be shipped double boxed and insured.

Bluejacket Smuggler 1877 Gloucester Schooner - 33 Inch Long Wooden Ship Model - O Scale, 1/48, 1012

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$295   

A superb model that sells new for $340. Of all aspects of New England fishing in the late 19th century, none was more distinctive than the mackerel purse-seine fishery with it's specialized gear, exacting techniques and fast, handsome schoolers built specifically for this seasonal work. Smuggler, with her extreme clipper hull, was one of the most beautiful of them all. This is a wood and metal model of the highest quality. When assembled, it measures 33 inches long and 25.5 inches high. Features a pre-carved basswood hull, laser cut hardwood parts, finely cast Britannia pewter fittings, all materials needed for deckhouses, spars and rigging material as well as three sheets of superb full-size plans. The kit has never been started. All parts are still in the factory sealed internal bags and includes plans (in mint condition) and the large instruction book (which is slightly used, it looks to have been studied). NOTE: unless you specify otherwise, this kit will ship in the original (very sturdy) model box wrapped in brown paper. If you specify, I will be glad to pack it inside a box but extra shipping will apply.
