Aurora-KB Fokker E-V (D-VIII) - Polish Air Force, 1/48, 1135-170

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$48   

1972 issue with revised molds and better quality. Includes pilot, ground crewman and battle terrain base. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. The aircraft represented in this kit fought with the Polish Air Force against the Ukranian forces in 1919 but by that point it was a D-VIII. The Fokker E.V was a fantastic performer and the result of a longtime Fokker development, the cantilever wing. In addition to greatly reducing drag, a properly built cantilever wing is very light and strong. This wing was first used on prototype V17 and then on V28 which took part in the Second Fight Competition (July 6-14 1918) where the most experienced German front line pilots chose new fighters for late war service. V28 was chosen for it's excellent flying properties and 200 of the production aircraft, known as the Fokker E.V, were ordered. Over 289 aircraft were delivery. The E.V began front line service on August 5, 1918; Lt. Emil Rolff of Jasta 6 reported an aerial victory on August 17. However, the day before, an E.V suffered catastrophic wing failure. Two days later, the same failure cost Lt. Rolff his life. All E.Vs were immediately grounded. A detailed investigation showed that there were fatal defects in the wing assembly caused by slack manufacturing processes. Although it was not his fault, Fokker took this opportunity to re-design and strengthen the wing. Existing E.V aircraft received new wings and newly built aircraft were designated D.VIII. Modified aircraft made it back to the front in November, too late for service. However, the aircraft saw active service after that war with the Freikorps air units, the Polish Air Force against Russia, the Dutch Air Force and an unspecified number went to France and the USA.

O-Lin Republic Seabee Amphibian - (Lindberg), 1/48, 503

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$119   

Very rare kit. The Seabee was produced as a high performance sport amphibian. This is a very hard-to-fine original O-lin kit in the small box and advertisement for O-lin cement on the top. Produced in 1949 or just before. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. O-Lin (correctly spelled with a hyphen) was founded by Paul Lindberg and a Mr. Olsen - hence the company name. Although a producer of flying models in the 1930s, O-lin produced some of the earliest American injection molded kits in the late 1940s. In 1950 the partnership may have ended, because all branding was changed to Lindberg and Paul Lindberg. I have not seen a catalog of O-lin, but from some instructions we know that the kit line sometime during the late 1940s was #100 C&NW Pioneer Locomotive and Tender, #500 F-80C Shooting Star, #501 Piper Cub Special, #502 Stinson, #503 Republic Seabee, #504 Beechcraft Bonanza, #505 F-86 Sabre Jet Fighter, #506 Ercoupe Club-Air and #507 Ryan Navion. More kits were issued as the 1940s came to a close and O-Lin ended all production. At some time in 1950 all kits were branded Lindberg only. It is common to see the earliest Lindberg kits with un-marked O-Lin instructions and "O-Lin Products Chicago 25, Ill." on the bottom of the teardrop stand. Paul Lindberg was careful to use up all the old materials on hand at O-lin.
