Planes have some tape on the back holding the overhead fuselage view in; it is done so well you can't tell unless you turn the plans over. Bill Wonacott drew the excellent plans. Little is known about Falcon Model Airplane Company. But thanks to Dusty Rhodes, we know that they were around as early as 1932 and actively advertising in Popular Aviation with a good sized add. Headquartered at 9610 Division Street, Portland, Oregon, they had a line of flying model kits and eventually solids. The bigger ships in the flying line appear to be quite deluxe, featuring dummy engines, aluminum spun cowlings and for power "The Prime Mover," a new gearless rubber power system that claims to double the flight endurance. Models in 1932 included the Monocoupe 10, Lockheed Orion (both $2.25) and a smaller line of 9" wingspan kits at 50 cents each, featuring the P-6E Hawk, Akron Fighter (Sparrowhawk), A-8 Attack, Gee Bee Racer, Lockheed Vega, Spad, SE-5, Hawker Fury, Curtiss Helldiver, Boeing P-12C, Ben Howard Racer, Lockheed Sirius, Fokker D-VII and Albatross D-III. Falcon eventually moved to Long Beach, CA.

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.

Berkeley is a very famous manufacturer of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.

Airfix IL-2M3 Stormovik / TWO Blenheim Mk.IV / TWO Hurricane IV RP / Fairey Firefly, 1/72, 293

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good to VG

Sold   

SALE!! Includes all 6 kits in the boxes shown. NOTE: Sold AS-IS and not inventoried. This collector was very meticulous and of his kits that I did inventory, 95% are complete. But on these kits he cut the sprue (trees) with the part numbers still attached to each number, so the parts are loose. Because of that, I have not inventoried these kits. NOTE: he built minor sub assemblies (cockpit tubs, wing halves, etc) to 'professional' quality. He also almost always removed the displays stands (if provided). Again, these kits are sold not inventoried and AS IS hence the very low price.

Lindberg's "Viet Nam Action Kit" sticker was not well thought out; did Luftwaffe F-86s take part in that conflict? Lindberg is a company with a fascinating history The original 'Lindberg Line' stretches back to the 1930s when Paul Lindberg drew plans for famous modeling magazines and marketed his balsa wood 'stick and tissue' by urging dealers to carry the '...Complete Lindberg Line'. After the war, Lindberg and Olsen had a strong hand in early United States injection molded kit development. Please see the article located on this website about early USA plastic kit manufacturers.
