From Dusty Rhodes - The lively fuselage and nose art seen on the box art aircraft commemorates the historic rivalry between the Italian 12th Bomber Squadron (badge = three mice) and the 51st Fighter Squadron (badge = black cat). It particularly refers to a 1938 exercise in which the 51st's G-50s successfully intercepted a simulated attack by the 12th's SM-79s. Prior to the introduction of the G.50, the SM79s had easily outpaced the Cr-32s flown by the 'cats.

Hobby Bereznyak-Isayev BI-1 - Soviet Rocket Fighter - Bagged, 1/72

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$19   

Limited run Russian model injection molded in brown plastic and with an injection molded clear canopy. There is little flash and fine raised and recessed detail. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. Please note that the kit did not come with decals and the instructions are inside the header. 'BI' stood for Blizhnii Istrebitel, which was 'close-range fighter' in Russian. Obviously, it also stood for the last names of the designers. The program was the Soviet Union's effort to produce a low cost rocket interceptor. The airplane flew and flew well, but it was plagued by engine issues, corrosion from nitric acid, and eventually tail flutter at high speeds that caused the loss of the most experienced test pilot, Grigory Yakovlevich Bakhchivandzhi. The early development started in 1938, with the first flights in 1940. The aircraft underwent a series of engine improvements and was still testing through 1945. The aircraft never entered series production. Bi-1 through BI-9 were built.

Email for availability.

Late 1930s or early 1945 issue. Almost everyone has heard of the Comet flying aircraft kits that boys and men built from stick and tissue, but few know that Comet had a line of ships also. Very nicely done wooden kit that measures 12 inches long when assembled. The hull had been very neatly factory machine cut to the overhead (beam) dimensions only. Also includes two sheets of printwood, solid, long balsa blocks for the superstructure, mast and gun barrel material, rigging material, decals and full size plans. The plans are superior to most ship plans of the day with 3 hull sections, full size top and side drawings, illustrated instructions and a very large number of detail drawings. The decals are in amazing 'excellent++' condition and were not issued with the wartime kits. The large sheet includes the correctly-shaded hull numbers, hull portholes, superstructure square windows and even doors. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts.

Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes all paperwork. Little is know about "Minicrafters Of Baltimore." Beyond the home town, one could judge that they had quite the line of 1/48 scale models since this one was likely #4 from the part number 'M-4.'
