Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

1970s issue. Kit features traditional stick and tissue construction, quality printwood, detailed full size plans/building instructions, hardware, wheels, tissue, rubber and propeller. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. 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.

Revell Boeing SST Supersonic 2 Kits (2707), 1/200, H262-300

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

Sold   

Still factory sealed. Rare and even more so in this condition. First issue from 1967 with Boeing prototype markings. The kit contains two large 18 inch long SSTs, one in landing and one in cruise configuration. The Boeing SST modeled here is the second (2707-200) variant which still had the swing-wing design which proved impractical in this aircraft. The damaging effects of sonic booms over population centers ultimately contributed to the cancellation of the project.

Revell Sir Freddie Laker's DC-10 Skytrain, 1/144, H271

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

1979 issue . Nicely done 1/144 scale kit of the famous (or infamous) three-holer in the historic Laker colors. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Decals are in amazing 'near mint++' condition. In 1971, air lines were highly regulated on both sides of the Atlantic. Freddie Laker thought he could fly passengers across the 'Pond' at a fraction of the current ticket prices. Using his successful experience from operating one of the most profitable UK charter airlines, Laker battled for years for permission to run his service at 1/3 of what the existing carriers charged. After 6 years, he finally won. On September 26, 1977, the Laker DC-10s began the first daily discount cross Atlantic flights from London to New York. Although Skytrain service has been long discontinued, Laker helped created the regulatory and business model for modern discount airlines, such as Southwest)
