Air Lines Miles Master Trainer, 1/72, 4904

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

Very finely molded in silver. Features separately molded ailerons, elevators and rudder. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes 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.

Irwin Sikorsky Helicopter With Gyro Friction Motor, 692

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

From 1953. The Irwin Company ("One Of The World's Largest Toy Manufacturers") decided to sell one of their toys as an unassembled kit in 1953. They may have been prompted by the success of the Gowland & Gowland Highway Pioneers, or perhaps they were simply had forward-looking leadership. This large scale model is made from color and factory painted plastic and can be assembled with regular wheels for a more 'scale' appearance or with the factory-built 'gyro friction motor' which turns the main rotor while taxing the helicopter along the ground. Features large fuselage that is 15" and molded in dark navy blue with factory painted silver sections, painted pilot figure, clear nose bubble, 17" rotor blade, (1) yello stretcher, 'scale' rubber wheels with metal axle, gyro-friction motor unit with all linkage and rubber wheels, yellow boarding ladder, the small plastic and metal hardware parts in the original box and decals. The text and illustrated instructions are present. Never started. Inventoried and NOTE: missing (1) of (2) stretchers and the tail rotor. Otherwise includes all other parts and paperwork.

Bergs Bergs Humming Bird Helicopter - Flyes / Glides / Circles

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Rare flying toy, most likely from the late 1940s or the the early 1950s. The original price was $3.00, which made it very expensive for that time. Berg's Humming Bird was made in "Allied Western Germany" and distributed by Josef Seidel of 878 Broadway, NY 3, NY. This is a flying helicopter that is completely prefabricated and consists of a very lightweight metle body with rubber wheels, a large completely-assembled rotor assembly with metal rotor head and frames with the blades covered in silver doped tissue, a heavy launching rod with a metal threaded rod and coupler and wooden handle painted red. The Instructions are present and it is a simple matter of placing the rotor assembly into the body, then putting the launching device underneath where it engages the rotor head. Then a quick pull on the upper handle sets the rotors spinning and up she goes! The model is 100% complete with all parts and illustrated instructions. Judging from the condition, it has never been flown.

Minicraft RMS Titanic Ocean Liner - Upgraded 'Musuem Quality' Issue with Corrections and Photoetched Parts - With ScaleDecks Real Wooden Deck, 1/350, 11315

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Includes the beautiful Scaledecks Laser Cut Real Wooden Deck Kit designed for this model. Retail cost is $99 new. Never used and still in mint condition; with instructions. The actual kit is large and highly detailed. After the Titanic was found, many modelers and historians corrected numerous details of this famous ship. Mincraft followed by modifying the molds of the classic 1/350 kit to include many of these corrections. Photoetched railings and rat lines were added also. The model is over 30 inches long when assembled. Just about every aftermarket photo-etched accessory you can imagine is available for this kit (I recommend the ones from Tom's Modelworks and Perry's Gold Medal Models), so you can create a museum masterpiece if you wish.
