Sterling Boeing P-26A Peashooter - 28 inch Wingspan for RC, E10

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$125   

28 inch wingspan kit for RC, CO2, free flight, control line or non-flying detailed scale kit. 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 featured color decals, high-grade die cut balsa, vacuform plastic detail parts, plastic wheels (if required), finished wire landing gear, rubber motor and plastic prop, full size plans with instruction details and full instructions for conversion to RC or control line. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Early hardbox issue with classic Bill Campbell 'Carrier' artwork. This kit features raised and recessed panel lines and very good detail for that time. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present.

Strombecker Beechcraft Bonanza V35 - Solid Wood Model Aircraft Kit, C-41

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$125   

Rare, classic early 1950s model that is made of solid Western Pine - not balsa. Builds up to an impressive display model. Features factory carved fuselage & wings, cut-to-shape tail features, sandpaper and a small parts bag with propeller, wheels, etc. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Before plastic kits were introduced, Strombecker was famous as the premier hardwood preshaped model manufacturer. In the 1940s and 1950s, Strombecker kits were flawlessly engineered but not inexpensive. All wooden parts are hardwood and are precarved to shape - usually only a quick sanding would finish them.

Aurora Convair B-36 Giant Bomber - Peacemaker, 1/333, 492-70

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$89   

Hardbox with wonderful gloss and color is dated 1961; however, this issue is probably from about 1964/5 because of the 70 cent price extension. This is a very nice small-scale model for that time and features full landing gear, gear doors, clear cockpit and bombardier's canopies, rotating propellers, twin jet engine pods and the clear triangle-shaped Aurora 'World Map' display stand. Molded gloss sliver and clear plastic. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The box has like new color and gloss, four solid corners, no repairs, no stains, fading, torn or missing litho and no price tags. Flaws include very light general wear, clear tape on the short sides and a thin, vertical factory litho line down through the "3" in B36. If you look closely at the photo you can see it, although it is difficult to see.

Strombecker Bell X-1B Supersonic Rocket, 1/48, D30

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$155   

Strombecker was very well known for producing the finest pre-carved hardwood aircraft and missile kits, but they had a very short journey into the plastic model field. They made a total of 5 molds for plastic injected aircraft kits, the 1956 Sea Dart being the first. All were discontinued in the mid 1960s. One kit is this excellent X-1B. It is the rarer of the two releases as it contains the pilots bust molded into the fuselage (the other one does not). Includes full instructions with three photos of the real aircraft, full color decals, Strombecker kit catalog and an application for the Strombecker Model-Makers Club. Kit features full landing gear, clear canopy and display stand. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

$46

AMT Beechcraft G17S Staggerwing, 1/48, T638

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$38   

This well molded model from the 1970s includes interior detail, full engine, optional position landing gear and more. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please note that the box displays better than the 'good+' rating but is graded as such because there is a narrow 1.5 inch long tape pull on the other side on the far right. The Staggerwing is still considered one of the finest civil aircraft designs to reach mass production. The brainchild of Walter Beech, the G17S had a top speed of over 200 mph and landed at 60 mph - all in 1932. It was faster than many fighter planes of the day.

Monogram F-51D Mustang Action Model - White Box Issue - (P-51), 1/32, 6847

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$105   

1973 issue of this classic large-scale 'Action Model' from the original Four Star Monogram line. Features highly detailed cockpit, opening canopy, pilot figure, tiny levers under the wings that drop the 2 bombs while the small knob on the bottom of the wing retracts and extends the main and tail wheel struts, while all gear doors (even the tail wheel ones) open and close automatically in the correct sequence. Not only do these features sound great, but they work. My built kit is 30 years old and still functions like new. Molded in silver, black and clear. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present.
