ITC Curtiss Condor Eastern Air Service or Antarctic Expedition II, 1/84, 3724-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

ITC was the model manufacturing arm of the giant Ideal Toy Company. Ideal only made plastic models for a very short time in the late 1950s and early 1960s before all production was discontinued. Luckily, they made some great subjects. This Condor is molded in the correct bright orange with blue-tinted clear windows and base. Includes decals for both variants. Never started.

Micro Models The 1937 Super Buccaneer - 36 inch Wingspan Flying Aircraft, 2/5, F108

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$55   

This is a reproduction of a classic design and is just under half the size of the original. It includes full size plans, pre-cut parts and is authentically scaled from the original design. There is no assembly and the model is complete. A great gas model designed to climb fast and high then 'Sniff for Thermals', the honored pastime of a generation of model enthusiasts. Flying model aircraft predated powered flight; however, balsa wood and printwood were not introduced until the early 1930s and the hobby took off, as well as the hunt for thermals. Gas flight began in the early 1930s, and powered models (most all driven by Brown engines) took home so many awards that they were forever separated in competition from rubber powered models. Design of gas models was tricky since RC (radio control) models could not yet be applied to the mass market; so a gas model had to not only fly and climb under power, but then glide sufficiently - all in a stable fashion and without any operator inputs once the airplane took off.

KVZ Ilyushin Il-62 Aeroflot, 1/100, 15000

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$75   

Very hard to find kit with fantastic Cold War Box art. KVZ was the logo used by this East German kit manufacturer from 1969 to 1973. During this time, some unique Cold War kits were produced of Russian Airliners and Military Helicopters and Aircraft. NOTE: The box art is Interflug, but the kit decals are for Aeroflot. This was common. Large and colorful decal sheet is in like-new condition. Never started. Inventoried and NOTE: missing one tiny 'bumper' wheel on the underside of the fuselage. Easily replaced or made. Otherwise includes all other parts, decals and instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Rare 1/48 large scale version of the incorrect Stealth Fighter.

Sterling Albatros DII-A (D-II) - 27 3/4 Inch Wingspan Flying RC Model, E9

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$69   

27.75 inch wingspan kit for RC, CO2, free flight, control line or non-flying detailed scale kit. This kit has minor, neat assembly. The spinner, wheel halves and machine gun halves have been cut out, and one wheel and one machine gun halves assembled to professional quality. There is no other assembly. Inventoried complete with all parts, plans and decals present. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they featured color decals, high-grade die cut balsa, vacuform plastic detail parts, plastic wheels (if required), finished wire landing gear, rubber motor and plastic prop, full size plans with instruction details and full instructions for conversion to RC or control line.

Inventoried complete and includes full plans and instructions.

Golden Age Reproductions Bell P-39D Airacobra or XFL-1 Airabonita - 24 inch Wingspan Balsa Flying Airplane

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$39

Ace Whitman USS Seadragon SS194 Submarine (Sargo Class) - Balsa Ship Model Kit, 1/169, 2994

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$79   

Rare, large scale 22 inch long hollow display model likely from the 1940s. It builds up with hull bulkheads and stringers and is intended to be tissue or silk covered, although it would be much wiser to either cover it with thin balsa or plank it like a plank-on-frame ship model. The photos (on the back of the box and on the plans) of the built model are impressive and realistic; no doubt, you can make an incredible, almost one-of-kind kit from it. However, there is a great deal of scratch building expected, which is typical of kits from that time. It is certainly not recommended for beginners. The builder should be highly experienced with stick and tissue methods and scratchbuilding fittings and more.

Flyline Models 1929 Velie Monocoupe - 22 inch Wingspan RC/Free Flight or Rubber Model, 1/16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$39   

This kit was sold new in 1974 and purchased direct from Flyline; there are even a few letters with advertisement flyers enclosed for other Flyline kits. Made for rubber free flight, but easily converted to co2 power or electric RC with today's light and tiny servos & receivers. Flyline Models was a manufacturer out of Fairfax, Virginia USA. The models are known for their high quality. The kit contains full size detailed plans, separate, detailed instructions, engine cylinder materials, high quality printed balsa sheets, strip and spar stock, decals, finished wheels, rubber motor, hardware and more. There has been no assembly but NOTE: some ribs and bulkheads have been neatly cut out to 'professional' quality. The small parts are still in the factory sealed bag. The other parts have been inventoried complete with all paperwork. Flyline Models operated from a mailing address of 10643 Ashby Place, Fairfax Virginia and had a very high quality, extensive line of beautiful stick and tissue models for R/C and free flight - many of them true scale. I believe it was operated by Herb Clukey. If you have more information, please let me know so I can update this.
