Comet Aeronca K - 25 Inch Wingspan - Coke Bottle Issue, N25-29

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

1950s/early 1960s stick-and-tissue flying model. Features quality balsa printwood, strip stock, formed wheels, covering material and full plans. The kit has never been started and is complete. The entire Comet 1950s "N" line included the following (gaps mean there is no kit, at least at that time): N1 Tiger Shark P-40, N2 F-86D Sabre Jet, N4 Globe Swift, N6 Taylorcraft, N8 F-51 Mustang, N9 Helicopter, N11 Ryan Navion, N12 Firefly, N15 Piper Cub, N16 Fokker DVII, N17 Spad, N24 Phantom Fury, N25 Aeronca K (floats) and N26 Stinson SR-7. 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.

Western Allied Products San Francisco Cable Car, 1/32

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Very rare and dated 1946. This is a large, scale model of an early Cable Car and measures 11 inches long when assembled. Features fully factory cut hard-wood parts, beautiful routed passenger benches, perfectly die-cut cardstock clerestory roof pieces, wood stock as required, printed clear sheet for grates and decorative corner moldings, full decals and a superb sheet of full size plans that includes detailed text instructions. Although the kit comes with trucks that you assemble, it mentions that you can purchase some O Scale trucks to use on the model. That would work if you choose them carefully; however, the kit is 1/32 scale overall. Never started. Inventoried and NOTE: missing one round wooden wheel; the other 7 are present. Very easily made from flat round stock or cut from a sheet. Otherwise includes all other parts, decals, printed clear plastic and plans in 'excellent' condition. Western Allied Products Co. was located at 605 Old County Road, San Carlos California. It seems that they were probably making other items and decided to get into the model kit business, possibly because of the popularity of the Hudson Miniatures 1/16 scale kits. From the text on the instructions, it appears that this Cable Car is their first kit. It mentions that they were in the process of developing other kits and wanted to hear from modelers. However, no other Western Allied kits have been spotted to date.
