Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

Rare flying rubber-powered model from the early 1950s. This kit is fresh from old store stock that was carefully stored; as a result, it is in exceptional, almost never touched condition. The boxes are as they left the factory with new colors and no only slight wear as shown. Inside, this is a 8.25" wingspan flying wooden model aircraft that is prefabricated along the lines of the Comet Struct-O-Speed. Features all die-cut parts, one-piece balsa wings & tail feathers, fuselage bulkheads & sides, top and bottom in balsa, balsa prop, rubber motor, cut-out covering templates on the plans, cut-out insignia and illustrated instructions. Since this model is all balsa, there is no tissue. Never started. The inside is exactly as it left the factory It is 100% complete. Little is known about Airlane Model Company, but they attracted some of the top model aircraft talent in the country. They were located at 318 W. 29th Street, Chicago, IL. Many Airlane plans were drawn by Bill Gough, who is a well known Model Aviation Hall of Fame Inductee. He was involved from 1925 onwards. He designed kits for Comet from 1935 to 1938, and after the war developed plastic kits for Monogram and Lindberg. He wrote early articles on model aviation for Sunday newspapers; at one point, he was in 17 national papers. His designs often appeared numerous magazines, especially in "Model Aviation" where he was known for brilliant, innovative and beautiful models that flew well. Bill was a competitive flier for more than 50 years. Starting in 1932 as a Junior Birdman, he competed for years in Chicago area contests. Later, he took parts in the AMA Nats and continued right up until 1984. His list of competition wins is too long to list here. As for Airlane, they had a series of wooden boat kits ("W" line), a series of wagon (old west style) models, sold glue with their name on it (in 5 and 10 cent sizes) as well as six aircraft lines- "X" solid scale (non-flying) models, "T" with <10" wingspans, "B" line with large 24 inch wingspans, "R" (larger wingspan, 50 cents) and "Q" (smaller, 25 cents and "D" line with large wingspans for gas engines .074 to .099,) flying kits. The R line included R1 through R12, Q was Q1 through Q15, "D" was D1 and D2, the T line was T1 through T6, B was B1-B3, the ships were W-1 through W-3 and there was even a line of solid scale models that were X-1 through X-6.

Ulrich Kenworth Semi Truck And Fruehauf Trailer Illinois California Express - HO Metal Kit, 1/87, 1V1

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Please read the article on this website about older HO train kits and the modeling revolution they caused in the late 1930s/1940s. During this time, Ulrich created fine cast metal models. When you build them, they look just like the prototypes since they are made of the same materials. The trailer is factory painted and lettered for "Illinois California Express."

Hasegawa Boeing B-47E Stratojet SAC, 1/72, K7

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

Kit is very nicely detailed with fine panel detail, cockpit, open/closed bomb bay doors with internal iron bomb load, tail "stinger" and detailed landing gear with good well detail. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The B-47 was a very advanced aircraft at the time. The XB-47 first flew in 1947. The big jet's speed was equal to or greater than all current fighter aircraft, so it received radar-controlled twin 20mm cannons in the tail as the only guns. Through the use of mid-air refueling, the B-47 gave SAC it's first all-jet force for nuclear or regular bomb delivery. Although it was tricky to fly, Stratojets flew into the mid 1960s. A program to strengthen the wings for low-level attack was responsible for prolonging the service life.
