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

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$89   

Rare kit from 1957. This is a highly prefabricated, rubber-powered, wooden scale flying model kit. It features beautiful, completely finished Monofoil upper and lower wings, die-cut fuselage sides and formers that are factory painted yellow, precarved wooden parts, fully finished wheels, die-cut clear windscreens, prop and pilot bust, fully formed wire landing gear, rubber motor, sandpaper, tissue, decals and excellent instructions. The kit has never been started. The small parts are still factory sealed in the wax bag. The parts that ever never sealed have all been inventoried complete. Includes decals and instructions. 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 engine cowl, pilot, missiles, prop and more. Assembly was by detailed full size plans.

Assembly was by detailed, illustrated plans. The F6F features die-cut blue painted balsa parts, a perfect Monofoil wing, carved fuselage block, stringers and dowels as required, completely finished wheels and metal hardware, plastic cowling/engine face, plastic propeller and pilot bust, clear vacuform canopy (still in mint condition, clear and not yellowed), rubber motor, sandpaper, full color decals, covering material and full instructions.

UPC Covered Wagon - With Driver / Two Oxen / Horse And Rider - (ex Adams / Revell / Miniature Masterpieces /Life-Like), 1/48, 4010-100

Vaccuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$59   

A rare model that is very finely engraved and well detailed. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions. UPC stood for Universal Powermaster Corporation which was based out of New York City, NY. UPC did not cut their own molds, but either leased molds or bought kits already molded from other manufacturers and re-boxed them in the USA. Scott Eidson, the famous artist best known for his artwork with Revell, also did UPC box art in the 1960s including this model. All UPC production ended in the 1970s. This kit has a fascinating history. It started life as one of the 'Miniature Masterpieces,' which was the brainchild of an alliance between Lou Glasser (Revell) and Steve Adams (Adams Action Models) in 1953. Although having the appearance of an independent company, the firm was run by Revell right down to the prototypes being made at the Revell plant. However, there was no evidence of the parent company on the surface. The State Coach of England was the first kit, issued in 1953. More kits of excellent quality followed. Revell completely took over the line in 1954, making the one-year original issues very rare. However, while Revell was now issuing them under their name, Adams was also issuing the line in 1958. Production was discontinued by both companies in the early 1960s; the molds then ended up with UPC. By the early 1970s, Life-Like ended up with many of the Adams molds and wound up owning the complete, original 'Miniature Masterpieces' line. Life-Like reissued them several times in that decade but the current whereabout of the molds are not known.
