ITC Sky Ranger B-29 Super Fortress - Motorized with Self-Starting Cam-A-Matic Action, 1/64, 36467-998

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


Very rare. 1961 first and only issue shortly before ITC discontinued all model kit production. This kit, the Thor Missile Base and the Halibut Submarine are the 'Holy Grail' of 1960s working model kits and are either famous or infamous depending on your point of view. In the hands of a skilled model builder, these kits worked and worked well - but in lesser hands, they suffered from reliability issues. The B-29 is considered the rarest of all motorized aircraft kits. When this large 1/64 scale kit is turned on, the first (right outboard) engine starts. Once the first engine has started, the second (left outboard) engine starts, then the third (right inboard) and fourth (left inboard) in the same fashion. When all four engines have started, the aircraft taxies down the runway. This is done through an electric motor, gear box and linkage drive system that works off of batteries internal to the B-29. The kit has never been started. Inside, all the original cardboard presentation material is present. Three of the four factory bags are still factory sealed. The only one that was opened (the one with large parts) have been inventoried 100% complete. Kit includes instructions and decals in excellent as-new condition. NOTE: shipping insurance is required for this kit.

Pegasus Pfalz D-XII, 1/72, 1023

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Comet Cessna C-37 Airmaster - 20 inch Wingspan Balsawood Flying Model Airplane, 5302-98

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or 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.

Aurora Cessna 310, 1/62, 283-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc-


1963 issue from ex-Comet molds. Neatly molded with all recessed panel lines, clear side and front windows, tip tanks, rotating propellers, display stand and full pinstripe decals. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Aurora had started a line of inexpensive 29 cent kits in about 1957. The line was a success, and it was expanded. The line grew again when Aurora purchased the Comet molds, as most of Comet's line was very small scale kits, many of them civil aircraft like this one. It appears that Aurora was encouraged by the sale of the ex-Comet civil aircraft, as it expanded the line with it's own molds in the early 1960s.
