Jasco Junior Phoenix - 36 inch Wingspan Class A Contest Flying Gas Model

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Jasco stood for Junior Aeronautical Supply Company and was based out of 203 East 15th Street, New York, NY. This model came from the estate of a very active and particular early aircraft kit collector. It is like factory-new inside and has not been started. Complete with all parts, plans and decals (if originally included). Early free-flight competition style kit, probably from the late 1940s or early 1950s. Designed for 'Sniffing Thermals', the honored pastime of a generation of model enthusiasts. Flying model aircraft predated powered flight; however, balsa wood and printwood were not introduced until the early 1930s and the hobby took off, as well as the hunt for thermals. Gas flight began in the early 1930s, and early gas powered models, all powered by Brown engines, took home so many awards that they were forever separated in competition from rubber powered models. Design of gas models was tricky since RC (radio control) models could not yet be applied to the mass market; so a gas model had to not only fly and climb under power, but then glide sufficiently - all without any operator inputs once the airplane took off. Getting the wing up out of the propeller airflow was a huge improvement, and this type of design proliferated.

Fox Sinbad 40 Towline Glider - Flying Balsa Wood Model Airplane with 40 Inch Wingspan (ex-Berkeley)

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

From the early 1960s. The Sinbad 40 was originally a Berkeley design and featured simple, strong balsa construction, integral ballast box, spiral control, Grade A Balsa, full size plans and more. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Duke Fox's company 'Fox' was already famous for it's line of reliable model airplane engines and expanded into a line of flying models as well.. Berkeley was a very famous manufacture of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. 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.
