This kit features traditional wood/tissue construction with quality, die-cut balsa sheet parts, stripwood, fully formed wheels, spars and wood stock as required, plastic prop, covering tissue and detailed, full-size plans and building instructions. (Please note, the kit is factory sealed so the exact contents are not know for sure; Comet was renown for slightly varying the content of stick-and-tissue kits across the years.) 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.

SNAP USMC Winnie the Whale LVT A4 - With 75mm Cannon (Ex Adams), 1/40, 157-149

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$129   

Quality model from the original Adams Action Model molds. Features working bogies, flexible tracks, crew of two and four soldiers and more. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. These molds must have had a very interesting history. The molds were cut in 1955 or 1956, either at Adams or by one of Revell's contractors. It appeared to be part of the Adams/Revell 1/40 line but Adams never issued the kit. UPC (Universal Power Master) had use of these molds in the 1960s are perhaps the early 1970s; however, the molds were probably in Japan as most if not all the UPC production occurred there. Around this point, SNAP plastics of Hillside, New Jersey acquired this kit along with many of the other ex-Adams military molds. While the UPC issues say 'Made in Japan' the SNAP issues say nothing of the origin of the manufacture; so perhaps they were made in New Jersey. Things get even more interesting with the Life-Like issue. How Life-Like came across the molds is unfortunately unknown but it may have been in a bulk-purchase of molds from SNAP since there were in the same general part of the country. This is simply conjecture, however.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$59   

SALE!! Ross Abare issue Gotha in superb 'Excellent' box condition. Mr. Abare, a rare kits dealer in the earliest days (mid 1970s) of kit collecting, contracted with Aurora to produce an exact copy of the original 1958 kit, which was bringing a premium at the time. However, Aurora had the printers use the mid 1960s oval logo without the 'Famous Fighters' in the border- thus forever separating the Abare issue from the original issue. Mr. Abare was reportedly quite upset, as he wanted exact copies. The model is molded in deep burgundy and black plastic just like the 1958 issue. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

FE Resin Mitsubishi Kawasaki A8V1 Type S Dick - Seversky 2PA-B3, 1/72, 72001

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$65   

Rare. Nicely detailed, limited-run, high-definition resin kit with a good cockpit and full decals. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions. This aircraft was exported to Japan by Seversky as the 2PA-B3 and accepted for operational service by the Imperial Japanese Navy as the A8V1 Type S Two Seat Fighter. The history of this type in Japanese service is obscure and not covered in any detail in the main English-language references for Japanese aircraft. The aircraft were supposedly imported as a result of Japanese anxiety over escalating losses for their unescorted strategic bombing raids with Type 96 G3M bombers deep into China from bases in Formosa (Taiwan) which had begun in 1937. The purchase contract for 20 Seversky 2PA-B3, c/n 122-141 had been negotiated secretly but was to cause controversy in the USA and subsequent difficulties in Serversky's relationship with the US government and military. Sources differ on exactly when the aircraft were delivered, but it must have been at least prior to October 1938. The Japanese were not happy with the performance but these did see action and were relegated to a reconnaissance role over central China with the 12th Kokutai, operating from bases around Nanking. It was not in service long and three were withdrawn and sold for civil use. Two ended up with Asahi Newspaper company and a third to Tokyo Nichinichi Newspaper company.
