Comet Sparky - 32 Inch Wingspan Wakefield-Style Balsa Flying Model Airplane, 3408-149

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Rare large flying model. 1970s reissue of the popular 1930s kit. These aircraft were common in the 1930s when the sport of free-flight model airplanes reached it's zenith. It was not uncommon for these models to fly for 45 minutes or more on rubber power alone - many flew out of sight, and it became common practice to write your name, address and phone number on the covering tissue. Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998. Kit features traditional wood/tissue construction, detailed full size plans, building instructions, hardware, wheels and canopy material (if required), tissue and propeller. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

Revell 1910 Hudson Highway Pioneers - US Antique Series, 1/32, H82-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+


1956/7 issue molded very nicely in a gloss white plastic. The kit has not been started. Inventoried complete with all parts. Includes instructions. Before the 1950s 'model building' never made the top 10 list of boy's activities. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream. Shortly after the turn of the century, many dedicated modelers built flying or static airplanes, ship, train, automotive or other subjects. Basic kits existed, but the majority of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s. The phenomenon of the Revell/Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' car kits was a significant force in proving that model building as a hobby could have mass appeal, provided that the kits were easy enough to build and finish. These 1/32 scale vehicles could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real car. The Highway Pioneers series lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys.

Life-Like 1908 Lanchester, C463

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++


Life-Like issue. From Pyro molds (see the end of this description for details). Nicely detailed kit for the time. Features detailed chassis and suspension with exhaust and steering linkage, full interior, complete motor, removable hood and parts molded in brown, clear, brass plate and with real rubber tires. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including instructions. On the side of the box it says 'Made Under License From Pyro Plastics Corp, Union, New Jersey', so clearly the molds came from Pyro. Part layout and design is identical to the other 'Brass Car' kit issues from Pyro. Also interesting is the Life-Like part number of C463. This number has no relation to any Life-Like part number, but is certainly a Pyro style part number code. In October of 1969 Pyro issued C462 (one number less), the 1906 Renault. It is possible that Pyro never issued the Lanchester under the Pyro name. But clearly, when Life-Like obtained manufacturing license in the early 1970s, the molds for this kit were owned by Pyro.

Includes numerous parts including davits, grated platforms, reel ends, capstan tops, railings, stairs with rails, anchors, chains and much, much more. The actual kit builds both ships.

Never started; nothing has been cut out and all the sheets are in excellent condition. 100% complete. The 'Wasp' class consisted of eleven armored gunboats of the Imperial German Navy . The boats were used for the defense of the German Wadden and estuaries in the German Bight. They were constructed from 1875 to 1881 at AG Weser in Bremen. From 1877 to 1900, the units were actively used; but as they aged, they were put into reserve service. Most were stricken as warship by 1911, but almost all found other uses- the Viper, for example, was a floating crane as late as the 1960s!

Pyro Merrimac Confederate Ram Ironclad, C259-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


Rare early issue of the Merrimac alone. Usually this kit is only seen in the release that contains it and the Monitor. Great hardbox artwork by AJ Rudisill from the late 50s or early 1960s. The Merrimac was one of two American Civil war ships that spelled the end of the wooden ship age. In March of 1862, the Merrimac put to sea to raise the Union Blockade off the James River. There she sank the Cumberland and Congress. The Monitor, the Union's only ironclad and the first turret ship, was rushed to the scene. The epic battle between the two iron-clad ships ended in a draw, with the Merrimac suffering a little more damage than the Monitor. The Merrimac was blown up to avoid capture; the Monitor sank in a gale in 1862. The Merrimac is 11 inches long when built, is a full hull model and includes a display stand. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. NOTE: instructions are photocopies of the original. Although dated, the Pyro Merrimac and Monitor kits are generally considered superior to the Lindberg models of the same ships.
