Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

Rare kit from the early 1950s. This kit is in rear 'excellent++' condition. The box and contents are bright and have excellent color.

The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Comet originally began model production in 1929 with a line of balsa flying models. In the mid-1950s Comet made a beautiful line of small and medium scale aircraft and missile models with colorful boxes. The early issues were in one-piece 'flip-top' boxes, and the later issues and releases were in standard two-piece 'hardboxes' with a lithograph slick glued to the top box. In 1963 Comet sold the plastic kit molds to Aurora, who reissued some but not all of the kits.

Micro Models The 1938 Twin Cyclone - 35 inch Wingspan Free Flight Gas Airplane, 3/5, F103

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

From the 1970s. This is a quality reproduction of this classic flyer and is 3/5 the size of the original. Features full size plans, pre-cut parts and is authentically scaled from the original design. This model came from the estate of a very active and particular early aircraft kit collector. It is like factory-new inside and has not been started and is complete. Designed for 'Sniffing Thermals', the honored pastime of a generation of 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 powered models (most all driven 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) models 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 in a stable fashion and without any operator inputs once the airplane took off.

Cleveland Grumman Gulfhawk F3F - 20 Inch Wingspan Flying Model, 1/16, R-70

Please note that this series of "R" kits shared a common box; the only way you could tell what was inside was to read the stamped part number and name on the end flap.
