Berkeley is a very famous manufacturer of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.

Greenbank Ryan M-1 Mailplane - (Hisso or J-4B) Colorado Airways or Pacific Air Transport - Bagged, 1/72, 31-195

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Fair++

Sold   

Still factory sealed but the paper header has damage as shown. The instructions are fine. Very rare kit. Has optional parts to build one of two versions, the Hisso or J-4b powered. Complete injection molded kit in two colors with rubber wheels, full decals for US Mail-Colorado Airways or Pacific Air Transport Air Mail, instructions and painting guide. The M-1 holds two very special places in American Aviation History. First, it is the first production monoplane and played a key roll in early airmail. In the 1920s, Government contracts for flying airmail on a $/mile basis was about the only thing keeping commercial aviation alive and growing. In 1926, the M-1 was the first aircraft to fly with PAT, Pacific Air Transport. PAT linked Seattle to LA with mail contracts. The other unique item is that this was the Ryan NYPs (Lindbergh's aircraft) father. When Lindy visited Ryan in 1927, he flew the M-1. He requested an airplane that was similar but larger - thus the NYP was born and aviation history was made.

Guillows Fokker D-VIII Flying Razor - 18 inch Wingspan Rubber Powered Aircraft, WW-9

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

From about 1964. One of a very popular line of World War 1 flying aircraft stick and tissue kits with 18 inch wingspans. Kit features scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, light vacuform nose cowl, die cut balsa parts, covering tissue, rubber motor and complete decals. Includes full-size, detailed plans. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Guillow's founder, Paul K. Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.

Aurora SE-5 British Scout Screwdriver Kit, 1/19, 399

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Rare. 1973 issue with colorful John Steel artwork. Very large 1/19 scale kit. Aurora originally designed these molds for gas-powered U-Control aircraft. Early market experience, however, showed Aurora that liability was higher with gas powered aircraft and customer returns were common. Aurora quickly discontinued gas production and came up with an idea to recoup the tooling costs - sell the kits as giant scale screw-together static model aircraft. Luckily the kits sold well for Aurora and modelers ended with some of the largest scale injection molded kits ever produced. Never started. Inside, the kit is exactly as it left the factory. The black parts, metal parts and screws are still in the factory sealed bags. The dark olive drab green parts were never sealed and have been inventoried complete with decals and instructions.
