Heller Trident Research Aircraft, 1/50, L105

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+++

Sold   

1960s Heller gloss-finish 'Yellow' box issue of this 1950s high-speed jet engine and rocket propelled aircraft. The interesting dual propulsion system gave the Trident the world altitude records in 1958. This kit has never been started. It is still in the internally sealed factory bag with decals and instructions. NOTE: the instructions show a stand, but I have never seen the Heller Trident (or Buzco issue) with a stand and the kit is factory bagged sealed - so I do not think it came with one. Instructions have 1 inch of bug damage but the decals do not.

Berkeley is a very famous manufacturer of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Most all Berkeley kits contain a high degree of prefabrication to speed up assembly. 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.
