Dyna-Model Grumman F8F Bearcat Wood and Metal Model Airplane, 1/48

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

In the 1930s and 1940s, most modelers built the flying stick and tissue type kits with rubber, co2 or gas power. But there were a small but measurable percent that built solid aircraft display models of great detail. This required great skill worthy of the shipbuilders of old, especially considering the limited offerings. Many manufacturers issued blocks of wood and a plan - the famous (or infamous) 'Make Wood Look Like Plane' kits. A few manufacturers, like Dyna-Model Products Company, attempted to provide true-scale static models with a high level of detail. Today Dyna-Models are legendary and sought after collectibles. When you first open the kit, you see a black and white cardboard display with all the needed jigs and templates for assembly. Underneath, the fuselage is rough carved (not just profile cut) and all other parts are rough cut or die cut. Includes color decals, full size and well-detailed plans and the crowning jewel, a box of finished metal castings for super detailing your aircraft. The model has not been started. NOTE: missing canopy and one missile; I have included the Hawk plastic 1/48 (same scale) two piece canopy and one missile. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts, decals and instructions present. One template was very neatly cut out but I taped it (from the back) into the proper location on the sheet.

Heller Fi-156 / MS-500 Storch / TWO Matchbox Bf-109E / TWO Matchbox Me-410 / TWO Matchbox Mosquito NF30 / Mk.IX / THREE Italaerei Henschel HS-126, 1/72

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+ to Exc

Sold   

SALE!! Includes all 10 kits in the boxes shown. NOTE: Sold AS-IS and not inventoried. This collector was very meticulous and of his kits that I did inventory, 95% are complete. But on these kits he cut the sprue (trees) with the part numbers still attached to each number, so the parts are loose. Because of that, I have not inventoried these kits. NOTE: he built minor sub assemblies (cockpit tubs, wing halves, etc) to "professional" quality. He also almost always removed the displays stands (if provided). Again, these kits are sold not inventoried and AS IS hence the very low price.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good to Exc

Sold   

SALE!! Includes all 9 kits in the boxes shown. NOTE: Sold AS-IS and not inventoried. This collector was very meticulous and of his kits that I did inventory, 95% are complete. But on these kits he cut the sprue (trees) with the part numbers still attached to each number, so the parts are loose. Because of that, I have not inventoried these kits. NOTE: he built minor sub assemblies (cockpit tubs, wing halves, etc) to "professional" quality. (One Bu-133 is in fact about 80% pro-built to 'professional' quality and ready for paint and small parts). He also almost always removed the displays stands (if provided). Again, these kits are sold not inventoried and AS IS hence the very low price.

Comet Cloud Buster - 21 inch Wingspan Flying Balsa Airplane Model, 4401-98

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

This is a 1970s kit. I can remember that when properly assembled, it flew very well - flights of a minute or more were common, and if you caught a thermal, you never saw your Cloud Buster again! Kit features traditional wood & tissue construction, detailed full size plans, building instructions, hardware, wheels and canopy material (if required), tissue, rubber and propeller. The model has not been started. Inventoried complete with all parts and instructions. 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 its 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.
