Life-Like Joseph Conrad Cadet School Ship - (ex-Pyro), 1/88, 09215

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

From original Pyro molds. The Joseph Conrad was built in 1882 in Denmark as the Georg Stage. Alan Villiers bought the ship in 1934 and saved it from the breakers. He renamed it Joseph Conrad for the famous maritime author. The ship made a famous round-the-world voyage from which Villiers wrote three books about the travels. The ship is now a museum ship at Mystic Seaport in Connecticut and is still used for static sailing ship training. The kit was originally made in the early 1960s and is nicely done for that time. Measures about 16 inches long when built. Includes detailed hull and deck, billowing sails, rigging material and rigging guide photos. Molded in black and white/ivory. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Monogram Boeing 737 United Airlines (T-43A) - (Ex-Aurora) (Modified Molds), 1/72, 5415

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Still the only 1/72 injection molded 737 and a big improvement from the Aurora kit. 1978 issue after Monogram bought Aurora's molds. Monogram only reissued the best and most commercially viable models. The 737 fell into that category but only after Monogram carefully modified the molds for accuracy. The result is an excellent early 737-100. First, Monogram filled in the side windows. Then they added very fine and accurate full panel lines to the entire model even down to the nacelles. and Much-needed flap hinge covers (fairings) were added to the lower wings. Contains greatly improved, full, excellent United Airlines markings and window decals. Could be converted to Military Transport T-43A, but you must furnish your own decals. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: decals were adult-cut in half so the 1st owner could store them in a zip lock bag. The result is that they are in amazing 'near mint' condition but they are cut in half.

California Model Co SPAD XIII - 18.75 Inch Wingspan Balsa Flying Aircraft, 1/16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

Probably from the late 1940s or early 1950s. Stick and tissue flying model kit to a constant 1/16 scale with very nice quality. Kit can use rubber, CO2 or small gas motors for power. Features covering material, quality balsa printwood and strip wood, blocks as needed and beautifully drawn full size plans. The model has not been started. Inventoried complete with all parts and plans. Made by California Model Company out of Long Beach, CA USA. If you have more information on this manufacture, please email me. How far back they go is unknown; they claim to have the 'Know How of 30 Years Experience' on the box side, but that could be interpreted many ways. From the box there was at least a Spad, SE-5, Fokker DVII, Niuport and a Sopwith Camel for rubber power as well as the 'Spacer A-B' & 'Spacer 1/2A' and the indoor Featherette. We know they also issued some ex-Suydam railroad kits as well.
