J Tarvin Blohm & Voss Ha-139 V3/U-1 'Nordmeer' or 'Nordwind' Four Engine Catapult Seaplane - Bagged, 1/72

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

Sold   

The kit builds the civil version of V1 (Nordmeer) or V2 (Nordwind). Basic vacuform kit. Not recommended for builders who are not experienced with vacuform kits and scratch building. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. In the 1930s Deutsche Lufthansa was operating a long distance airmail service. To expand this service, it was thought that if a ship could sail part way across the North and South Atlantic, it could catapult launch a long-range seaplane to carry the mail. This system would allow the mail to arrive days ahead of time. The result was the graceful Ha 139 V2 (D-AJEY) 'Nordwind' and Ha 139 V1 (D-AMIE) 'Nordmeer', which were finished late summer 1936. Using the Lufthansa catapult ship 'Friesenland' and 'Schwabenland', the Ha-139s proved to be exceptional aircraft and did very well on trans oceanic flights. Some 139s were launched from the ship near the Azores. This allowed the mail to arrive in New York only 16.5 hours later. Improvements were built into Ha 139 V3 (D-ASTA) 'Nordstern' and all three aircraft few the North Atlantic route. Eventually there were also used in service between Bathurst in Western Africa and Recife in Brazil. In June 1939 the 139s made their 100th crossing of the Atlantic Ocean. Now there were few obstacles for airline service to North and South America, but politics kept the Germans from landing in the USA. When WWII began, two aircraft were in service on the southern route and all three were impressed into Luftwaffe service. V1 and V2 became transports and took part in the Invasion of Norway. V3 was given defensive guns and minesweeping equipment and became U-1. The airborne endurance was 25 hours, which is quite remarkable. When the spare parts ran out, these graceful aircraft were scrapped.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Very hard to find first issue of this desirable kit. The box top says 'Fully Operating Model Does Everything But Fire' and it is true. The model consists of over 300 parts and has many action features typical of Renwal models. The wheels roll, tractors can be hooked to the cannon which can be stowed in the 'travel' position. The gun can move into the 'fire' position off the tractors and can be trained realistically. The box top has 'like-new' gloss with some general edge and corner wear. Colors are bright and clear. Inside, the kit is as new. All parts that came in factory sealed bags are still in factory sealed bags. Even the factory tags stating "Do not open until section xxx is completed" are intact. The few large parts that were never sealed have been inventoried and are 100% complete and bagged for protection. The barrel has the factory silver paint that is still in excellent condition. The decals show light yellowing only and are flat. The very large instruction sheet is like new.

Airfix DH Comet 4B BEA, 1/144, SK500

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

Sold   

Still factory sealed. 1960s 'Third Logo' issue in excellent condition. Nice 1/144 scale kit of the world's first jet airliner. Includes clear windows, full landing gear, display stand, passenger boarding stairs and BEA decals. The initial Comet Is were in operation long before the 707, which gave the British an incredible post-war lead in the expanding civil aviation market. Just as the Comet was flying high and orders were pouring in from around the world, Comets began to mysteriously fall out of the sky. Everything from lightning to terrorist bombs were blamed. For months the root cause went undiscovered. Then, in a landmark investigation that is considered the first modern post-crash autopsy, it was discovered that the stresses around a small ADF window on the top of the fuselage were causing metal fatigue failure when the fuselage was pressurized. To confirm this, a Comet I was placed in a water tank and subjected to pressurization stresses. After some time, a dramatic failure occurred. Then parts of a crashed Comet were pulled from underwater proving once and for all that this was the root cause.
