Comet Grumman F4F-4 Official Identification Kit - 'Build For Victory', 1/72, 1A-2

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

From about 1941/42 and rare in this condition. 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 injection molded recognition models. This kit features wood block and sheets, CASCO cement paper envelope, two sheets of 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.

Hobby Model Douglas SBD Dauntless, 1/72, T-32

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

Wartime solid wood display (non-flying) model from about 1943/1944. Features balsa fuselage block, printed balsa wood wing sheet, printed wood sheet for stabilizers, prop blades, tail wheel and gear doors, fully formed wooden wheels, sandpaper and excellent instructions featuring templates, multiple views and drawings, detailed carving instructions for the fuselage (a welcome addition!) and assembly instructions. The templates are also duplicated on the heavier cardboard box as they are more useful that way. Such quality plans and full carving instructions and such are rare with these kits, which makes this one above average. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Hobby Model was located in New York, NY and at least produced the "T" series of kits if not others. The "T" series was T-32 SBD Dauntless, T-33 Curtis P-40 Warhawk, T-34 Supermarine Mk IX Spitfire, T-35 F4U-3 Corsair, T-35 Grumman F6F Hellcat and T-37 P-51C Mustang.

StromBecker North American F-86 Sabre Jet, C44

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

Great kit from the 1950s. Before plastic kits were introduced, Strombecker was famous as the premier hardwood, preshaped model manufacture. In the 1940s and 1950s, Strombecker kits were flawlessly engineered but not inexpensive. All wooden parts are quality hardwood (not balsa) and are smooth precarved to final shape - usually only a quick sanding would finish them. When complete it makes an impressive desk top display. Features original glue and sandpaper, clear plastic canopy, special Strombecker 'teardrop' display stand and extensive full color decals. Never started. 100% complete with all parts, decals and detailed plans, instructions.

Revell Barnstormers! Bob Hoover's P-51D Mustang and Joe C. Hughes Super Stearman with Wing Walker and Diorama, 1/72, H666

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

1976 issue. This kit is important because Revell was thoughtful enough to alter the venerable PT-17 molds to make a real Super Stearman. Includes new cowling/engine, scoops as required and more. This may be the only issue of the Super Stearman in this scale. Revell issued three of these 'Airshow' style kits in this year H664, H665 and H666. Each contained two aircraft and a color diorama base, backdrop and special stand. If you have all three kits, the three bases fit together to make a large Air Show diorama with all six aircraft. The model has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Esoteric Douglas PD-1, 1/72, NAF-24

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Very rare high-quality kit. Esoteric vacs have better detailed moldings than many injection molded kits and this model is no exception. Features superior surface detail, good cockpit, beautifully cast metal details and full color decals. Never started. All parts still sealed in factory bags. Complete with instructions and decals. The US Navy used to offer designs of one firm to other manufacturers to build, the theory being that this helped the young aircraft industry. PD-1 was the name given to the 25 Douglas built airplanes based on the Curtiss PN-12 design. PN-12 was the logical progression of the PN-5, which was the increased wingspan version of the WWI F2A. Other companies that built the PN-12 with minor changes were Martin (PM-1, PM-2), Keystone (PK-1) and the Hall PH-1. All of these types served from the early 1930s until replaced by the more modern Consolidated P2Ys and ultimately the PBY.
