Scale Flight Spartan Executive (Fighter) - 20 inch Wingspan Dime Scale Flying Airplane, Dime

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$18   

Scale Flight Model Company in Bloomington, Indiana, USA was dedicated to releasing authentic reproductions of the finest "Dime Scale" flying model (stick and tissue) kits from the 1930s/40s. Dime Scale models used to sell for a dime in the 1930's, hence the name. They are actually box scale, but as a general guideline, they usually had a wingspan of 16 inches and have simple and light construction. "Dime Scale" models are now a class flown in some competitions. Kit consists of contest grade printwood, contest quality strip wood, machine cut balsa propeller, the best Japanese tissue, wooden wheels, competition bushed nose plug, brass thrust washers, prop shaft, prop freewheeler, FAI rubber strip motor and a copy of a genuine dime scale plan that was used in the 1930s-1940s. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

Top Flite DC-3 Gold Edition - 82.5 Inch Wingspan RC Aircraft - Eastern or C-47 Markings, 1/14, TOPA0500

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$179   

Very large RC 1/14 Sport Scale Airplane. The Golden Era of Aviation Eastern Air Lines replica is IMAA Legal with a fully-sheeted fuselage and wingspan of 82.5". The original airplane was designed for commercial passenger travel, and some still fly today. This is a great introduction into building and flying a scale twin-engined kit. Features excellent flying characteristics; because of the engine angle and modified aerodynamics, this kit flies extremely well, even on one engine. (Most models of the DC-3 will go inverted and crash.) The kit is primarily wood and precision-formed ABS (tail cone, engine nacelles, wing fairings, and cockpit top). An interlocking fuselage frame builds flat on the plans and the large round fuselage requires very little carving or shaping. Can be built with split-flaps and the scale aerodynamic "Balance Tab" rudder which uses the air deflection to help turn the plane. Includes Eastern Air Lines and Optional Military C-47 decals. The kit has never been started and is factory new inside. All small parts are still factory sealed. All other parts are still in the factory rubber band bundles and have been inventoried complete including decals, great instructions and plans. NOTE: unless you specify otherwise, the kit will be shipped in the box shown. There will be an additional charge to pack and ship it in another box.

Pyro Portuguese Man-O-War Santa Catarina do Monte Sinai - Flagship of Vasco de Gama, 1/200, C209-300

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$95   

Very rare Larger-scale hardbox issue from 1966. There are only two 15th century war carrack ships that have made into plastic models - this one and the Henri Grace a Dieu, also by Pyro. Pyro had a tendency to produce historically significant models regardless of the popularity. I am thankful today that Pyro made these kits, but in the long run this practice did not help them. Pyro eventually sold the plastic kit business to Life-Like. The Portuguese carrack Santa Catarina do Monte Sinai was launched in 1520. She had the typical higher-castled construction and carried 140 cannons. In 1523 she was the flagship of the famous Vasco da Gama. The kit is well detailed and molded for that time and includes pre-formed ratlines, rigging line and billowing sails. The model measures about 14-15 inches long when assembled. The instructions include completed model photographs that are intended to be used as for rigging diagrams. Never started. The brown parts are all still in the factory sealed bag. The white parts were not sealed and have been inventoried complete with all parts, thread and instructions.

Precise Martin Marietta Sprint ABM

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

$1100   

Very rare promotional model of the 'Safeguard' ABM Missile Sprint. The Sprint and Spartan pair made up the missiles of this Anti-Ballistic Missile system with Sprint designed for short range interceptions. The system was made operational on October 1 1975 and Congress voted to shut it down less than 24 hours later on October 2 1975. Condition is excellent. Missile measures 14.75 inches high and is made of plastic. The missile body is mint with no broken parts - no scratches - no wear. The decals are 'very good.' There is some black missing on the roll pattern at the top (see photo) and the same amount missing on the back base roll pattern. The red 'US ARMY' is mint on the back but part of the 'R' is missing on the front as shown. The base is 'excellent' and has a metal plate that reads 'US Army Sprint Antimissile Missile - Martin Marietta.' There are no touch ups or repairs and no cracks.
