Monogram Speedee-Bilt Boeing PT-13 Kaydet Trainer Flying Scale Airplane, G5-100

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++++


The first trainer standardized for the Air Force and Navy. Rubber-powered wooden scale flying model kit. 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.

Ken Friend 1/32 North American XP-82 (F-82) Twin Mustang, 1/32

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+++


Limited production 1/32 XP-82 kit designed and manufactured by Ken Friend. Ken had access to the actual XP prototype and factory manuals during the design of this kit. This model can be built in one of two ways. First, all parts are included to create a desk-top style 'in flight' factory display-style model. Second, you can create a highly detailed showpiece by adding landing gear, cockpit, and engine detail parts from the Dragon 1/32 P-51D, EP and F-6D variants or from aftermarket detail sets. The kit consists of resin parts (shown above), two clear vac canopies, full decals and a CD containing building instructions, a very large number of reference photographs and information from the original aircraft manuals. If you are building a fully detailed version with wheels down, cockpit detail etc, you will need 'donor' kits. This model was designed to use the Dragon 1/32 P-51 kits as they are reasonably priced and the parts used are accurate. You could use any aftermarket parts and cockpits that you wish - just keep in mind that it may cost more and require more fitting than the recommended Dragon donors. This kit has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and a CD with reference photos and instructions for 'Display Model' version and 'Full' version.
