CMK Renard R-31, 1/72, 177

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed

Sold   

Designed by Alfred Renard, the R-31 was designed to replace the Belgian Air Force Breguet XIX. The aircraft was a success, as it was sturdy but had some poor flight characteristics due to the heavy Rolls Royce Kestrel powerplant. 34 total aircraft were ordered and the remainder flew 40 missions when the German invasion hit. The R-31 was the only Belgian design to see combat in WWII. Still sealed. Very high quality resin castings.

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed

Sold   

The N2T-1 was a Navy/Marines basic trainer in the 1930s and was the worlds first 'plastic airplane'. The Nuyon patent process utilized cross-grain spruce and birch veneers impregnated with pheno-formalydehyde and vacuum baked to create complete airframe components. This was the 'Aeromold' process. 262 were built. In the south, termites were a problem and acrobatics were prohibited due to possible structural weakness. Still sealed.

Contrail Fairy Gordon Mk.I or Mk.II, 1/72

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

The Gordon was a two-man general purpose RAF Day bomber. Developed from the Fairey III series, the Gordon used a more powerful Armstrong Siddeley Panther radial instead of the in-line Napier Lion. Deliveries started in 1931 and production ran through 1934. The design was considered successful and 160 were build. Another 30 Mk. IIIs were converted to Gordons. The Gordon saw extensive use at home and overseas. Two home squadrons took part in the Abyssianian crisis of 1935 and made the flight to the Middle East. Parts for both aircraft are included in the kit, as well as decals. Complete and never started. Includes airfoil shaped strut stock and metal details parts.

Contrail Saunders-Roe S.36 Lerwick, 1/72

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed

Sold   

The Lerwick was a all metal flying boat powered by two Hercules engines. Initial versions had twin stabilizers and rudders. Designed for long patrols, she was armed with three powered turrets and a variety of weapons. The Lerwick was found to be aerodynamically unstable, even with the addition of a single large vertical fin. Because of this, it was not used much and only 21 were built. The PBY was found to be a much easier platform to fly, and the last Lerwick patrol was in 1943. Contains vac main parts with injection molded and metal detail parts. Still sealed.

Contrail A.V. Roe Manchester, 1/72

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

The Manchester was an RAF bomber which entered service in November of 1940 with 207th Squadron. The design was sound but the Vulture engines were troublesome. Engine failures, fires and unserviceability made it unpopular with crews. AV Roe was quick to solve this problem and wasted no time in replacing the Vulture with the Merlin - creating the Manchester Mk III - the prototype Lancaster. Main vac airframe parts with clear parts and injection molded and metal details. Comes with full decals. Unstarted and complete.

Contrail Fairey Hendon, 1/72

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

The Hendon was a RAF night bomber created in response to 1927 Air Ministry specs to replace the Virginia. The Hendon was a large twin engine monoplane of metal construction with fabric covering, making it the first all metal structure monoplane in the RAF. Fairey was no stranger to this type of aircraft, having already made several large monoplanes for record attempts. But the monoplane design was just too new for the minds in the Air Ministry and they opted for twin engine Heyford biplanes instead. 14 Hendons were built for the 38 Squadron. Vac kit with metal detail parts and full decals/instructions. Complete and never started.

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Mint

Sold   

Bell's first and only tandem rotor design was the first ASW helicopter. The prototype flew in 1953 and it flew well. The Navy and British Fleet Air Arm ordered several craft. However, the first carrier trials showed the noise levels to be very high that limited sonar performance. Production was cut and the Navy went to the HSS-1. XHSL-1s performed minesweeping, training and other duties till retirement at the end of the 1960s. Very highly detailed resin kit. Still internally sealed. Complete with decals and instructions.
