StromBecker Consolidated Model 28 Trans-Atlantic Flying Boat - Civil PBY, C8

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor+


Very rare and most likely from the late 1930s. StromBecker was famous for their line of precarved hardwood kits and they are considered the finest ever made. The carving is done to the final shape which makes them remarkably pre-fabricated. This model features a completely carved to shape fuselage, wings and horizontal & vertical stabilizers & more, hardwood wing strut material, an envelope of powdered CASCO wood glue, sanding stick and two grits of sandpaper. When built it makes an impressive desk top display. NOTE: Builder kit only, please read carefully for the condition. NOTE: this kit has minor and 'excellent' quality sub-assembly as follows: rudder to fuselage; pylon to wing bottom. There is no other assembly. Inventoried and NOTE: missing one engine nacelle (the other is present and an ideal pattern since they are identical). Missing (1) of (2) float blocks, both propellers and two brads (very small nails). Otherwise includes all other parts and detailed instructions. The main center of the box in intact but heavily worn; the two large end flaps are 70% present but all four small side box flaps are missing. There is tape, etc on the box, hence the 'poor+' rating.

Sterling British SE-5 Scout - With Profile Book And Williams Bros Wheels And Machine Gun - 40 Inch Wingspan Scale RC Airplane, FS-22

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


Includes the following aftermarket parts: Williams Brothers #131 3 3/4 Inch Wheel Set (hollow rubber tires and plastic solid wheels), Williams Brothers #161 2" Scale (1/6 scale) Lewis Machine Gun .30 Cal plastic kit (still factory sealed) and Profile Publications Number 1 The SE5A in very good condition. The actual kit is a very large full-scale model- even the rib spacing in the wings and tail is correct to the original, as is the stringer spacing of the fuselage. The only exception to scale is the modern airfoil cross section. Designed for R/C or control line with a .19 to .29 gas engine and measures 30.5 inches long with a 40 3/8 inch wingspan. Highly detailed. Features all die-cut sheet wood parts of very high quality balsa, numerous plastic details and metal radiator parts, wood and metal stock as needed, dowels, blocks and cut to shape wood, a great deal of hardware, three huge full color decal sheets and superb full size plans with instructions on them. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I personally considered Sterlings to be 'deluxe' kits.
