Cragstan Wooden Motorized Electric Boat Model - From 1950s Japan, 1331

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++


Hand-painted operating 9.5 inch long ready-to-run wooden boat with metal fittings in the original box. This boat is in near-mint condition and appears to have never been run or played with. The only flaw is some minor missing paint at the front and back bottom of the hull. The box is rare and is complete and grades 'very good++'. The original tissue packing paper is included. The boat is all hardwood with a natural stained finish deck, white upper hull and red below the waterline and with a yellow deck house with a red roof. There is a life ring as well as metal hand rails, horn vents and front light (non-operating). The capstan is the on/off switch. Inside the boat is in mint, factory condition. I believe that batteries have never been installed. The large motor, wiring, universal joint, battery holders and contacts and prop shaft all appear as new. Underneath there is an all metal prop and adjustable rudder, again in new condition.

Ranco Models Kellett YG-1B (XR-2) Autogyro, 1/42

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+++


Large (17 inch LOA) model of this 1930s craft. The ship had no ailerons, rudder or elevator. Directional control was through a pivoting rotor head. Rotor blades folded for storage. The KD-1 made the worlds first autogyro roof-top landing in May of 1935 at the US Post Office in Philadelphia. The plans say this is the XR-2 and YG-1B. The plans certainly look like the YG-1B Army Craft; the YG-1B was modified with a constant speed rotor and became the YG-1C; it was then redesignated XR-2. This craft is also known as a KD-1; the model will built any of the three. Never started. Complete with all parts, plans and unused tube of glue.

1978 issue. Well made 1/144 kit of the famous (or infamous) three-holer. NOTE: this kit has been started. The clear side window strips have been glued into the fuselage.

Before using any older kits decals please read the two articles on this website about saving old decals. In 1971, air lines were highly regulated on both sides of the Atlantic. Freddie Laker thought he could fly passengers across the 'Pond' at a fraction of the current ticket prices. Using his successful experience from operating one of the most profitable UK charter airlines, Laker battled for years for permission to run his service at 1/3 of what the existing carriers charged. After 6 years, he finally won. On September 26, 1977, the Laker DC-10s began the first daily discount cross Atlantic flights from London to New York. Although Skytrain service has been long discontinued, Laker helped created the regulatory and business model for modern discount airlines, such as Southwest)
