Pyro 1930 Ford Model A Woody Wagon, 1/32, C306-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Sold   

Still factory sealed but the seal has split. 1960s Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of it's kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. In some cases, the specific car and owner is on the box. The model includes colored injection molded parts, clear parts, detailed chassis and complete interior. Ideal for slot car conversion.

Guillows Guillows Air-Pro Folding Wing Glider Store Display and Balsa Wood Flying Gliders

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

Very rare complete dealer display and 5 unopened gliders. The Air-Pro was a late 1950s/early 1960s balsa and plastic glider that has folding wings. When launched with the equipped plastic/rubber band launcher, the wings fold and the Air-Pro zooms to about 50 feet high. At that point, the wings fold out for 'glides of hundreds of feet'. The box is in very good condition and has some internal repairs to stabilize it. These repairs are not visible with the gliders inside. The display Air-Pro is complete and in excellent condition - the empty packet for it remain in the box. In the box are 5 mint condition and sealed gliders. A fantastic piece for the advanced wooden flying model collector.

Monogram Speedee-Bilt Spad Pursuit Flying Scale Model Airplane, G8-100

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

Sold   

This kit models Capt. Rickenbacker's 94th Squadron aircraft. Before there were plastic models, there were wooden aircraft kits. These usually came in two types - solid and stick and tissue. The solid models were static and usually contained a few blocks of balsa and sometimes a detail part or two. These "Make Wood Look Like Plane" models required a very high level of skill in carving and finishing. The stick and tissue variety were slightly easier to build and provided the ultimate thrill - they could fly when complete with rubber power (and later with free-flight gas and eventually RC). They still required a great deal of skill, so manufacturers sought ways to make model building more accessible to everyone. One idea was pre-carving and/or prefabrication. This raised prices, naturally. Many manufacturers launched lines of 'easy' to build flying models but only Monogram succeeded in making an entire line at an affordable price that would actual fly. The original "Speedee-Bilt" kits were in one-piece two-color boxes. In the early 1950s, shortly before plastic kits were available, Monogram changed to the 'hardbox' with a lithographic slick glued to the top as this kit. Speedee-Bilt kits contained die cut and pre painted wooden parts, completely formed airfoil wings, carved wheels and numerous plastic details like cowlings, pilot, missiles, prop and more. Assembly was by detailed full size plans. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Lindberg P.T. Boat (PT Boat) by Paul Lindberg, 1/60, 701-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

Early hardbox issue from the 1950s. Fantastic Ray Gaedke artwork. Very large and nicely detailed kit with 122 parts. This early issue still features metal stanchions and metal hand rails. This kit has never been started. It is either still in the internally sealed factory bag or has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. This kit has a fascinating history. It was originally produced by Varney in 1944 as a multi-media model. It was novel at the time as it had a wooden hull and cardstock deck but all injection molded tenite deck parts and details. That made it one of the first US ship kits to have extensive injection molded parts. But the world was not ready for this type of kit and dealers were hesitant to carry it - which resulted in low sales. Gorden Varney sold the molds for the kit to O-lin (Olsen and Lindberg). O-Lin reworked the kit using a vacuform hull, cardstock and tenite parts. When Lindberg took full control of O-lin, he went to an injection molded hull, colorful cardstock 'wood' deck and all polystyrene parts for the first issue. The second issue was all plastic with the metal stanchions and hand rails - and that is this kit.

Berkeley is a very famous manufacturer of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.
