Kyosho Convair B-36 Peacemaker Bomber - 9.3 Foot Wingspan 6 Engine Flying Model Airplane, 1/18

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

Listed as "S&E" but there is no doubt that this is Kyosho's famous flagship kit from the 1960s. NOTE: builder kit only, please read very carefully as it is missing some parts. Very Rare and Very Large model from the late 1950s or early 1960s. Approximately 1/18 scale flying model aircraft kit with a 112.5 inch (9.375 foot) Wingspan and a overall length of 78 inches (6.5 foot). Designed for powered flight on 6 gasoline engines and control line. It was once popular to convert this kit to RC but great skill is required. Highly prefabricated kit of precut hardwood, precut plywood, precut and pre-shaped balsa, vacuform plastic canopies and blisters, completely prefabricated sprung main landing gear with metal hubs and rubber tires. Includes metal hardware also. There are two very large sheets of full size plans in 'very good++' condition. There is no assembly. NOTE: someone built the easy part of the fuselage (the perfectly round section), installed the nose strut and never touched the rest of the kit. The portion they built is gone. So the kit ONLY INCLUDES the wing parts, nacelles, main landing gear struts and wheels, clear canopy and other clear parts as required, horizontal and vertical stabilizer, rudder and elevator parts, aft fuselage parts and of course the two large plans sheets. I have inventoried those to the best of my ability -not an easy task with this kit - and everything major is there. It may be missing a small balsa block or two or some basic hardware, but everything important is there. Sold as-is.

Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.

ITC Stinson Model T Tri-Motor - Eastern Air Service, 1/61, 3722

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Rare. This famous early 1930s transport was the primary competition of the Ford Tri-Motor and saw widespread use. It was the idea of E.L. Cord, the money behind the aircraft and the owner of the Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg automobile company. Cord also owned Lycoming, the engines that ended up on the final product. Another of Cord's companies was Century Airlines, which naturally used the aircraft. Century later became part of American Airlines. The Model T was used by many other airlines including Eastern, Delta, Braniff, TWA, United and American when they rolled up Century. The Tri-Motor carried 10 passengers, baggage and of course the mail, which was critical to early airline revenue. The aircraft proved successful and economical to operate. Includes clear windows, interior with passengers and pilots, Eastern Air Service decals and clear blue-tinted display stand. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The clear parts and decals are still in the factory sealed bag.

Academy 1804 Trevithick The World's First Steam Locomotive, 1/38, 1525

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

From ex-Entex molds and well detailed. The world's first locomotive was the 1804 Trevithick. On February 13 of that year, Richard Trevithick's high pressure steam locomotive pulled five wagons carrying 10 tons of iron and 70 men on the Penydaren Tramroad from Methyr to Abercynon, Wales. The nine miles was covered in four hours and five minutes but much time was lost cutting down several trees and removing some large rocks. At times they reached the unheard of speed of five miles per hour! The performance won a 500 Pound wager for the train's owner, Mr. Samuel Homfrey and proved for once and for all that smooth steel wheels could obtain traction on a smooth iron rail. Until this day, conventional wisdom insisted that only geared wheels running on geared track would be able to pull any load up the slightest grade. The model is from the 1986 but the molds pre-date that. Older but very nice kit that is well detailed and molded. Includes display stand. The kit has never been started. The plastic parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags; the metal parts are also factory sealed. Includes instructions.
