Comet Brewster F2A-3 Buffalo Official Identification Kit - 'Build For Victory', 1/72, IA-1

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

A very rare kit and even more so in this condition. From about 1941/42. This model is 'Identical to the one used in the Model Building Program of the US Office of Education sponsored by the US Navy, Bureau of Aeronautics' which was a program launched in 1941. During WWII the higher speed of aircraft made the traditional WW1 'recognition cards' nearly useless and 3D models were needed. The US Armed Forces looked to the general population to produce recognition models. While not fully successful due to irregular quality and supply, it quickly paved the way for superior injection molded recognition models. This kit features wood blocks, sheets and stock, an envelope of CASCO glue, sandpaper, an excellent, very thick paper template, outline and gauge sheet as well as fold-out full size plans with aircraft history and detailed carving and building instructions. Never started and complete.

Airfix Short Sunderland - Craftmaster Issue, 1/72, 1-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair++

Sold   

Classic 1960s issue with great artwork. A merchant ship is sinking on the left and the crew is in lifeboats in the foreground on lower side panel. The Sunderland is preparing to rescue them, while the other Sunderland depth-charges the U-boat responsible for the sinking. Kit features beaching gear, rotating turrets with elevating guns, movable control surfaces, external bomb load and rotating props. Inventoried and NOTE: missing two small parts that do not show: (2) propeller retainers, which are easily made. Otherwise complete with all other parts, decals and instructions. The box displays better than the 'fair++' grade but is rated as such because crush damage on the upper left as well as a split corner. The Sunderland's 21-year record with the RAF has made it a legend. Derived from the Empire Class Flying Boat Airliners, Sunderland IIIs had a top speed of 210 mph and an endurance of 12 hours. These qualities made the Sunderland a superb platform for North Sea and North Atlantic patrols, ASW and SAR. Crews usually loved the airplane; its large size afforded many airborne comforts that bomber or fighter crews could only dream of, such as bunk, a head and an area for food preparation.
