Master Modell Antonov AN-14 Bienchen Clod - Aeroflot / Soviet Air Force / East German Air Force DDR, 1/72, 1026

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$26   

Older but nicely molded kit of this very useful and long-lived aircraft. Features very good cockpit, full cabin with floor, seats and bulkheads (with a clear window in the cockpit bulkhead), separately molded control surface hinges, rotating wheels and propellers, optional opened or closed rear loading doors with staircase, and a paint guide & very large and extensive decals sheet for the three versions listed. The Antonov AN-14 'Little Bee' was developed to fulfill an Aeroflot need for a small, twin engined, short-ranged aircraft holding 5 to 6 passenger or 500 kg of freight for an airport to city shuttle service. The aircraft was also designed to be suitable for hire, agriculture, medical service and pilot training. Design emphasis was placed on low-maintenance, STOL performance and rough field take offs and landings. The prototype was completed in spring of 1958 and flight testing started on March 15 of the same year. After solving some typical problem, the aircraft entered series production and was very successful, fulfilling many more duties than it was ever designed for. The AN-14 was eventually phased out but replaced by the An-14M with PTL engines. At present, it's successor model, the AN-28 went into production in Poland. In 1993, PZL-Mielec developed its own improved variant, the PZL M28 Skytruck.

Comet US Army Observation Y10-43 - 22 Inch Wingspan Flying Aircraft - (Y10 43)

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$62   

Very rare kit from 1934. Stick and tissue kit almost never turn up from this early. This is a very nice model with excellent and highly detailed plans showing numerous drawings, parts layout and full-size templates, numerous detailing tips and excellent text instructions. They even have an actual photo of the fuselage being built. In addition there is a full size sheet of separate text instructions. The parts feature four sheets of printwood, strip wood in different sizes, original two colors of tissue paper, very large, colorful and comprehensive insignia sheet, fully carved wood prop, fully carved spinner and wheels, two sheets of sandpaper, a paper envelope of metal detail parts, clear canopy material with the window frames printed on, metal stock, quality strip balsa and balsa blocks and rigging cord. NOTE: the following fuselage bulkheads have been cut out and are missing but are full-size on the plans: #1, #2, #3 and #4. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts and plans present. Three other parts are neatly cut out and present. No other parts are cut. The box top is complete with all four sides and top but is tattered on and along the lower long side; there is also general wear and damage as shown. It does display better than the grade, but is rated as such due to the damage on the box sides The tray (bottom box) is 'very good-' with some wear to the edges. Inside, the superb plans are 'very good++.' They were never 'pinned down' for assembly, have no writing on them and the folds are solid (not fragile.) Flaws are a 3" closed tear and the normal yellowing.

Revell Republic F-84F Thunderstreak Whip-Fly, 1/54, H152-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$69   

1960 issue of the rare 'Whip Fly' series. Hardbox artwork for this series was 'action' photos by Tom Kelly. Whip-Fly kits contain the aircraft model with nose ballast, a metal control ring, 12 feet of control line and a control handle so that you could spin the aircraft around in circles. This kit has never been started. It is either still in the internally sealed factory bag or has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The long side of the box shows the complete Whip-Fly series with the action box art. Included are H151 F9F-8 Cougar, H152 F-84F, H153 F-89D Scorpion, H154 F8U-1 Crusader, H155 F-39 Airacobra and H156 F-101A Voodoo. Although not listed yet, there was also a Whip-Fly Canberra, F-106 and Yak-25 Flashlight. The Whip-Fly series seemed like a good idea...at first. Revell quickly realized that spinning heavily-ballasted, sharp objects at dizzying speeds in or outside the home near groups of children was not the best idea. The series was quickly discontinued.

This is a Kyosho kit made and packed in Japan in the 1960s but marketed by Kayeff Inc in California. I estimate the wingspan to be about 36 inches.

This kit has not been started. The parts are complete, with the factory sealed ones still bag sealed and many parts still wrapped with the factory Kyosho tape. NOTE: I have lost the plans to this kit. You will need to find a set of Kyosho plans to build this model.

Revell 1907 Renault Limousine Highway Pioneers - Series Four, 1/32, H53-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$36   

1953 early issue molded in salmon plastic. This is from the issues produced with Gowland & Gowland as it carrier their 'balloon' logo on the side. The model has not been started. The parts are still sealed in the original 'krinkle' bag and the kit is complete with instructions. Before the 1950s 'model building' never made the top 10 list of boy's activities. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream. Shortly after the turn of the century, many dedicated modelers built flying or static airplanes, ship, train, automotive or other subjects. Basic kits existed, but the majority of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s. The phenomenon of the Revell/Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' car 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 could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real car. The Highway Pioneers series lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys.
