Sold   

Rare. From the early to mid 1970s. Big scale model is designed for R/C operation, gas .020 or .049 control line/free flight, rubber powered or even as a detailed static display model. Box art is by Locher, who did a great deal of the Monogram box artwork also. This is a very nice and well detailed model for that time featuring 'Tube-O-Matic' fuselage construction, 'Rugged Super X Simplified Non-Warping Wing' light-weight plastic spinner, lower fuselage, upper fuselage cowl, exhaust manifolds, wheels, main gear struts, radiator machine gun leading edges and mcuh more, beautiful clear vacuformed canopy (in great condition, not yellowed), completely formed metal gear struts, nose button, hardware, rubber motor, all die-cut balsa wood, factory-cut stripwood and leading & trailing wing edges, covering tissue, big 9" plastic flying prop, very colorful and comprehensive insignia sheet, detailed full size plans with building instructions and more. The model has not been started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed bag and the parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete with all parts. 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.

Sterling P-47 Thunderbolt With Operating Landing Gear In Flight - 20 Inch Wingspan For R/C / Control Line / Free Flight, A4

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Very nicely produced stick-and-tissue model that lowers the landing gear before the model lands. Can be flown with rubber, electric or gas control line or converted to RC with modern lightweight systems. Features high quality die-cut balsa sheet parts, stripwood and spars, fully formed wire landing gear struts, finished wheels, other wood and metal stock as required, light plastic full engine cowl, pilot bust and other details, beautiful clear vacuformed one-piece canopy (still mint not yellowed), rubber motor, plastic prop, a big set of full color decals, coving tissue and excellent full size plans with detailed instructions. Never started and complete with the small parts still sealed in the "Sterling" clear bag and all other parts inventoried present. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they had the action features and included everything needed to complete the model.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Mint

Sold   

1958 issue in rare, investment-grade 'Mint' condition. The original owner neatly cut the original seal along the bottom and kept it on the box top, thus preserving the factory fresh appearance. A nice kit for that time featuring cockpit with floors, seats, control sticks & instrument panels, clear windshields, rotating prop, pilot figure, clear triangle base display stand and RAF decals.

Balboa Rio Grande Southern (RGS) Galloping Goose Three Truck Freight Brass Locomotive HOn3 Narrow Gauge, 1/87

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Beautiful, like-new condition brass narrow gauge locomotive, hand-built in Japan by the renown Balboa Scale models. It is still wrapped in the original plastic and all three pieces of the factory foam are intact and in 'excellent+' condition. This model has always been carefully stored in the original box. There is the slightest bit of wheel wear at 14x magnification, so it appears it was test run at one point - probably at Balboa. I see no broken parts and no modifications; it looks factory-new. Also includes the correct fold-out blue Balboa instruction sheet and factory sealed Balboa/Champ decals for the RGS Galloping Goose. The box top and tray are complete but both have wear and stains, so they grade low. I have no narrow gauge track, so I am unable to test the locomotive, so it is sold "As Is."

Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Boeing Fighter (F4B-4) - Midget Craft 6 inch wingspan Solid Balsa Airplane Model - (F4B4)

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Very old 1932 issue from Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Company. Ideal was one of the first US model airplane producers, starting their business in 1911. During the early years of the Great Depression, Ideal switched to balsa wood and soon released a line of 'Six Inch Wingspread' solid scale models in a line called 'Ideal Midget-Craft'. Adds for this line can be seen in Model Airplane News and other major popular aircraft publications of the 1930s. The models included plans and the required wood and usually retailed for about 10 cents. This aircraft has been started, which in this case is good news. The fuselage from Ideal was simply wooden stock. The original builder has carved the fuselage very accurately and correctly to about 90% finished. No other work has been done and no other parts have been cut out of the printwood. The model is complete and would be easy to finish.
