Flyline Models The Classic 1929 Monocoupe - 22 5/16 Inch Wingspan For Rubber Free Flight or R/C And Electric Conversion, 1/16, 101

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Sold   

Still factory sealed. From the mid 1970s. Made for .010 gas power, CO2 or rubber free flight. Easily converted to electric free flight or even R/C 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 usually contains full size detailed plans, separate, detailed instructions, engine cylinder material, high quality printed balsa sheets, strip and spar stock, decals, finished wheels, rubber motor, hardware and more. 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.

HMV SMS Baden 1916 with Two PE Detail Sets - German WWI Battleship - Cardstock, 1/250

Features 7 sheets of richly illustrated building instructions. Never started; nothing has been cut out and all the sheets are in excellent condition. 100% complete. From Wikipedia: SMS Baden was a Bayern-class dreadnought battleship of the German Imperial Navy built during World War I. Launched in October 1915 and completed in March 1917, she was the last battleship completed for use in the war; two of her sisters- Sachsen and Wurttemberg- were incomplete when the war ended. The ship mounted eight 38-centimeter (15 in) guns in four twin turrets, displaced 32,200 metric tons (31,700 long tons; 35,500 short tons) at full combat load, and had a top speed of 21 knots (39 km/h; 24 mph). Along with her sister Bayern, Baden was the largest and most powerfully armed battleship built by the Imperial Navy. She was scuttled a Scapa Flow. However, she was the last ship to begin scuttling, and the British were alerted. As a result, she was the only capital ship not successfully sunk in the scuttling. The ship was refloated in July after which she was towed to the British naval base at Invergordon. The British, painfully aware of the shortcoming of some of their designs, examined Baden patiently and completely. In the end, naval historian Arthur Marder wrote in 1969 that it was his "considered opinion- which I know coincided with that of others engaged on the same job- that, considered as a fighting machine, anyhow on balance the Baden was markedly in advance of any comparable ship of the Royal Navy". The ship was expended in weapons tests, where it proved to be as tough at the other legendary German WWI designs.

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.
