Marvel Republic Guardsman - Severskey 2PA / USAAF bAT-12 / Japan ASV-1 / Swedish B-6 - Combat Planes of America, 1/64

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$24   

Rare kit from 1942. This is a scale solid wood kit with an 11 inch wingspan. The scale is given on the plans as 5/16" = 1'. It features balsa wood blocks and sheet as required, very thick and heavy printed cardstock parts, color insignia and full size plans with templates & construction notes. This is a typical kit from this era that requires serious carving and shaping skills. Complete and never started. NOTE: the plans have some bug damage. The plans are still usable but the damage is significant. The Seversky 2PA is the two-seat version of the single seat P-35 model manufactured by the Seversky Company, which was later reformed under the name Republic Aviation. In 1935-39, Seversky sold 20 of the aircraft to Japan. The Japanese Navy designated as these as ASV-1 s. Later, Sweden ordered 52 which carried the designation B6.In June 1940, the United States government ordered an embargo on the sale of U.S. made aircraft to all foreign countries except Britain. Sweden had received two aircraft of their order, and the remaining 50 were sold to the United States Army Air Corps and designated the AT-12 Guardsman. It is unlikely that any AT-12 served as an advanced trainer, however, as most were allocated during World War 2 to USAAC base commanding officers as fast transport aircraft. Marvel was a popular manufacture with a large line of army vehicles, tanks of all nations, aircraft and more.

Maircraft Boeing F4B-4 - Solid Wood Model Airplane - (F4B4), 1/48, S16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$24   

Maircraft was originally founded in the early or mid 1930s by Gordon Christoph and went by the name Aircraft Model Company. The company produced a typical line of solid 'profile cut' kits that required the usual high talent levels for carving and finishing. A former Comet Model Airplane & Supply Co. salesman, Jack Mair, bought the company in the early 1940s and renamed it Maircraft. This company was one of the handful of solid kit producers who issued models in a consistent 1/48 scale during the 1930s and 1940s (others included Hawk and Dyna-Model). This lead to one of the most desirable and rare model kits ever produced in the USA - the wood/plastic 1/48 United DC-3 model issued immediately after World War 2. Other than the P-61 and a few other Maircraft offerings, most were simple kits that sold for the low price of about 35 cents and gave the owners many hours of pleasurable work. This kit features a full size plan with instructions steps and templates, 2D cut fuselage and wings, other wooden parts, a factory-sealed small envelope of details and full color decals by Walthers! (Usually it was just a cut-out insignia sheet). The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including instructions.
