Maircraft TWO Fokker D-VII And Fokker D-VIII And Sopwith Camel - Solid Wood Model Airplanes, 1/48, S20

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair to Good

$34   

SALE!! Includes all four WWI solid wood 1/48 scale aircraft models. None of the kits have ever been started. There are two Fokker DVII kits in the one box. One is factory new; the other is just the fuselage, wings, tails and propeller. The Camel and DVIII are complete and never started. 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). This lead to one of the most desirable and rare model kits ever produced in the USA - the wood/plastic 1/48 United DC-3 model issued immediately after World War 2. Other than the P-61 and a few other Maircraft offerings, most were simple kits that sold for the low price of about 35 cents and gave the owners many hours of pleasurable work.

Rare 1930s model of this early US Navy Blimp. The ZMC-2 (Zeppelin Metal Clad 200,000 cubic foot capacity was the only successfully operated metal-skinned airship ever built. She was built at Naval Air Station Grosse Ile by The Aircraft Development Corporation of Detroit. ZMC-2 was operated from 1929 to 1941 by the U.S. Navy at Lakehurst, New Jersey base. She was scrapped in 1941. During her service ZMC-2 completed 752 flights for 2265 hours of flight time. This model was made by C&S Model Company, Trenton, New Jersey. They had quite a line of airships as I have seen their adds in very old Model Airplane News magazines.

All smaller parts are still wrapped in the factory tissue paper. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and paperwork included.

This kit is advertised on the short side panel as being 12 inches long; however, it measures 10 inches long on the plans.
