Maircraft Luscombe Silvaire - 'Little Gems' Series Scale Solid Wooden Aircraft Kit, 1/72, G-6

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

Sold   

These kits are good candidates for the first line of 1/72 model aircraft produced in the USA. Although not as old as the Frog injection molded 1/72 scale kits, these solid wood and metal models were made in the late 1930s or 1940s to 1/6 inch scale - which is commonly known today as exactly 1/72 scale. Maircraft announced kits G-1 through G-6 with 'more to come', but it is likely that no others were produced as Maircraft was out of business by 1948. The highpoint of the Little Gems series was the plans and instructions. Wonderfully illustrated and written, they show step by step how to carve and contour the model and how to finish it. Includes excellent three view full size drawings and templates. The kit consists of balsa wood with printed outlines for all parts and a metal parts sheet with wheels and propeller. This kit has never been started and is complete with all parts and plans/instructions. Maircraft was originally founded in the early or mid 1930s by Gordon Christoph and went by the name Aircraft Model Company. The company produced a typical line of solid 'profile cut' kits that required the usual high talent levels for carving and finishing. A former Comet Model Airplane & Supply Co. salesman, Jack Mair, bought the company in the early 1940s and renamed it Maircraft. This company was one of the handful of solid kit producers who issued models in a consistent 1/48 scale during the 1930s and 1940s (others included Hawk and Dyna-Model), and eventually even made these 1/72 scale series 'Little Gems'.

Dragon Saunders Roe SR A/1 Jet Flying Boat, 1/72

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed

Sold   

SR A/1 was a prototype high-performance jet seaplane fighter for the RAF. The famous flying boat maker, Saunders Roe, saw that with the new jet engine they could overcome the drag penalties of floats - hence a fighter with a flying boat hull. The first flight was 1947 and the aircraft had a maximum speed of 512 MPH with a range of 1200 miles - very good performance for the day. But the success of the aircraft carrier had sealed the fate of the A/1 and the project was limited to three prototypes. Still factory sealed.
