Tuskuda Hobby The UFO from 'The Invaders' TV Series (ex-Aurora), 1/72, SOT-003-277

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

Tuskuda Hobby release. Actual release date is unknown, but this was clearly after Monogram's first reissue after they purchased the original Aurora molds in the mid/late 1970s. This kit does have the additional script from the first Monogram issue on the cover - it says 'From the TV Show The Invaders - A Quinn Martin Production'. Aurora had originally released this kit as a promotion with the 1966 TV series 'The Invaders'. The box is excellent condition. The alien craft features moving landing legs, removable top showing full interior and crew and clear landing lights. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including instructions. NOTE: four small pins are broken from the landing gear. Three are in the box and one is missing. This part is easily made from round stock or pulled sprue.

Sterling Curtiss P-6E Hawk - 16 inch Wingspan Flying Model Aircraft that Drops Bombs in Flight, A10

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

Sold   

Still factory sealed. 16 inch wingspan kit for free flight or control line. Includes innovative system for automatically dropping bombs in flight. 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 always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they featured color decals, high-grade die cut balsa, vacuform plastic detail parts, plastic wheels (if required), finished wire landing gear, rubber motor and plastic prop, full size plans with instruction details and instructions for conversion to control line.

Cal Aero-Model Playboy Senior (Reproduction) - 36 inch Wingspan Wooden Flying Aircraft

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

Smaller scale repro kit of the famous Cleveland Playboy Senior. For .020 power free flight or RC. This model came from the estate of a very active and particular early aircraft kit collector. It is like factory-new inside and has not been started. Complete with all parts, plans and decals (if originally included). Designed for 'Sniffing Thermals', the honored pastime of a generation of model enthusiasts. Flying model aircraft predated powered flight; however, balsa wood and printwood were not introduced until the early 1930s and the hobby took off, as well as the hunt for thermals. Gas flight began in the early 1930s, and powered models (most all driven by Brown engines) took home so many awards that they were forever separated in competition from rubber powered models. Design of gas models was tricky since RC (radio control) models could not yet be applied to the mass market; so a gas model had to not only fly and climb under power, but then glide sufficiently - all in a stable fashion and without any operator inputs once the airplane took off.
