Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Very finely molded in silver. Features separately molded ailerons, elevators and rudder. As with most Frog mold kits, this model builds up to an excellent replica of the real aircraft. 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. Box art is by the famous Jo Kotula who did 1930s covers for the magazine 'Model Airplane News' and later the Aurora box art of the late 1950s. Air Lines kits are all Frog molds that the Lines Brothers imported to the USA between 1964-1966. The kits, decals and instructions were made in England, then imported to the USA where Testors created the boxes with the colorful trading cards on the back. There are one or two trading cards on each box which show the boxart but not the advertising/logo. Some kits contain a Testors color painting guide also, but it is not specific to any model.

Scale Flight Comet's Mr. Mulligan - 16 inch Wingspan Dime Scale Flying Airplane, Dime

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

Scale Flight Model Company in Bloomington, Indiana, USA was dedicated to releasing authentic reproductions of the finest "Dime Scale" flying model (stick and tissue) kits from the 1930s/40s. Dime Scale models used to sell for a dime in the 1930's, hence the name. They are actually box scale, but as a general guideline, they usually had a wingspan of 16 inches and have simple and light construction. "Dime Scale" models are now a class flown in some competitions. Kit consists of contest grade printwood, contest quality strip wood, machine cut balsa propeller, the best Japanese tissue, wooden wheels, competition bushed nose plug, brass thrust washers, prop shaft, prop freewheeler, FAI rubber strip motor and a copy of a genuine dime scale plan that was used in the 1930s-1940s. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

Haji 1950s USAF Biplane - Tin Lithographed Friction Powered Toy with Rotating Propeller, 1/48

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

Sold   

Very clean and original all-metal tin litho toy from Haji in Tokyo, Japan. Also known as Mansei Toy Company, they went into business in 1951 to no doubt enter the booming post-war toy export market. Measures 8.25 inches long with a 11.25 inch wingspan; I have listed the scale as roughly 1/48 as it looks like a JN-4 Jenny in that scale. This piece is guaranteed to be old and not a reproduction. It came from the estate of a model collector who took exceptional care of his toys. There are no dings or dents - it appears to have never been played with. The paint is graded as 'excellent+++' but with cleaning it could be 'near mint'. Gloss and shine are as new. Identified as 'Haji Made in Japan' on the right fuselage just below the horizontal stabilizer. The motion is from a friction motor which also turns the propeller and makes a loud, satisfying noise.
