Marx Chris Craft Constellation With Power Kit - 30 Inches Long, 1/20, 5707

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$329   

One of the finest motor yacht kits ever made. From the late 1950s. Features very good detail and 225 parts. Measures approximately 30" long, 10" high and 8 inches wide when assembled. Can be made for radio control or as a highly detailed static model. Molded with cast metal accessories, metal and brass hardware and classic 1950s turquoise, brown, white, clear and peach colored and chrome plated plastic. Includes the captain, deck chairs and the two 'Bathing Beauties'. Even rarer than the kit itself is the included 'Marx Chris Craft Twin Electric Motor Power Kit' which is mint in the box. Inside it has two 'Mighty Monty' electric motors, battery holder, motor holders, wiring, switches, full instruction sheet and more. Both the Power Kit and the model have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts. NOTE: the boat has very minor assembly: #1 small retainers, rudder post and prop shaft post have been installed to 'excellent' quality. There is no other assembly. One bathing beauty has her bathing suit painted red. There is no other painting. NOTE: The flat hull glass windows have glue marks and smears; I have included them but also included plenty of thick plastic clear stock. You can easily duplicate these windows as they are simply flat clear parts. Just cut then bigger than the hull window openings and glue to the inside. Shipping insurance is required for this kit.

WK Models Heinkel He-170A Radial Engine, 1/72, 7202

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$24   

Unusual radial engine variant. The He-170 was built in 1937 as an export version of the He-70F for long-range reconnaissance. It had a license-built Gnome-Rhone 14K Mistral Major engine in a traditional NACA cowling which gave it a very different appearance from the He-70. The prototype He 170 made its maiden flight in 1937. It was followed by eighteen production aircraft, which were delivered to Hungary in 1937-38, and entered service with I Independent Long-Range Reconnaissance Group in Carpatho-Ruthenia in March 1939. In the summer of 1941 Hungary agreed to assist Germany in the invasion of the USSR. The He170 was blooded at this point but various vulnerabilities caused it to be quickly withdrawn from service. The kit has markings for D-OHEW. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. NOTE: the instructions are from the "F" version but the tree of conversion parts is separate and simply use those instead of the other parts as well as cutting the nose off and using the supplied NACA cowling.

O-Lin Republic Seabee Amphibian - (Lindberg), 1/48, 503

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$119   

Very rare kit. The Seabee was produced as a high performance sport amphibian. This is a very hard-to-fine original O-lin kit in the small box and advertisement for O-lin cement on the top. Produced in 1949 or just before. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. O-Lin (Olin) was founded by Paul Lindberg and a Mr. Olsen - hence the company name. Although a producer of flying models in the 1930s, O-line produced some of the earliest American injection molded kits in the late 1940s. In 1950 the partnership may have ended, because all branding was changed to Lindberg and Paul Lindberg.

Aircraft Models Company of America Fokker Universal Scale Replica Model Kit - Flying Wooden Model From 1933 - 24 Inch Wingspan

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$175   

Very rare kit from 1933. Although well known, balsa wood did not come into widespread commercial modeling use until the 1930s. Before then, aircraft kits were composed of hardwoods, bamboo, metal fittings and silk, fabric or tissue covering. This interesting kit bridges the gap between 'old' and 'new' (at the time) wooden kits. The parts are balsa, bamboo, metal and celluloid. The manufacture was Aircraft Models Company of America, 29 Bartholomew Avenue, Hartford Connecticut. They made solid and flying models and the original price of this model was $1.50 - rather expensive at the time. The high price was justified by the unusual complete nature of the kit. The prop blank is machined (not finished) carved, all ribs are completely cut out and notched, the nose block is machine carved, the wheels completely formed celluloid and balsa, the stripwood is cut to the proper width and height, there is clear celluloid for the windows, complete full size blue-print plans, metal bushings and washers, sandpaper, beautiful red tissue, a glass bottle of "Tissue Cement - Aircraft Models Company of American", a bottle of "Tissue Dope" (also labeled), a cork-sealed vial of red paint, and general assembly instructions. The kit has never been started. NOTE: it is missing 2 of 6 small brass eyelets (bushings) and 3 of 6 very small washers. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts, plans, instructions and supplies.

Midwest T-Bird (Tbird) - 39 inch Wingspan Aircraft for Sport or Competition Free Flight, FG-7

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$79   

Built for 'Sniffing Thermals', the honored pastime of a generation of flying model enthusiasts. Flying model aircraft predated powered flight; however, balsa wood and printwood were not introduced until the early 1930s and the hobby took off, as well as the hunt for thermals. Gas flight began in the early 1930s, and early gas powered models, all powered by Brown engines, took home so many awards that they were forever separated in competition from rubber powered models. Design of gas models was tricky since RC (radio control) model could not yet be applied to the mass market; so a gas model had to not only fly and climb under power, but then glide sufficiently - all without any operator inputs once the airplane took off. Getting the wing up out of the propeller airflow was a huge improvement, and this type of design proliferated. This is one example of a parasol style 1940s free-flight competition aircraft designed by Russ Hansen. Quality kit includes printwood, strip wood, wheels, tissue and beautiful full size plans. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.
