Hasegawa TWO KITS Boeing B-47E Stratojets, 1/72, 1223

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

SALE!! Includes two kit. NOTE: please read carefully. Very nicely detailed with fine raised panel detail, cockpit, open/closed bomb bay doors with internal iron bomb load, tail "stinger" and detailed landing gear with good wheel well detail. The kits have never been started. One is inventoried 100% complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: the other kit is missing two small parts: rear machine guns and the face plate for them. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts present, along with decals and instructions. The B-47 was a very advanced aircraft at the time. The XB-47 first flew in 1947. The big jet's speed was equal to or greater than all current fighter aircraft, so it received radar-controlled twin 20mm cannons in the tail as the only guns. Through the use of mid-air refueling, the B-47 gave SAC it's first all-jet force for nuclear or regular bomb delivery. Although it was tricky to fly, Stratojets flew into the mid 1960s. A program to strengthen the wings for low-level attack was responsible for prolonging the service life.

Berkeley Sinbad 40 - 40 Inch Wingspan Towline Launched Glider

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Excellent kit dated 1946 on the plans and is from the older West Hempstead NY address. Part of the famous 'Sinbad' series tow-line gliders from Berkeley, this is most likely a mid 1950s issue. Includes the patented 'Spiral/Tow Control' rudder system. Big 40 inch wingspan - idea for RC. Features all die cut parts, full size plans and silk-span covering. The model has not been started. NOTE: all parts have been punched out neatly by an adult. A complete inventory was done and it is missing R2 and 1 tiny gusset - both are easily made and represented full size on the plans. Otherwise complete with all other parts, clear windshield material, balsa blocks, covering material and excellent plans/instructions. 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.

Aurora Cessna 310, 1/62, 283-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

1963 issue from ex-Comet molds. Neatly molded with all recessed panel lines, clear side and front windows, tip tanks, rotating propellers, display stand and full pinstripe decals. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. The box has damage/creases as shown, especially on the left top side. Aurora had started a line of inexpensive 29 cent kits in about 1957. The line was a success, and it was expanded. The line grew again when Aurora purchased the Comet molds, as most of Comet's line was very small scale kits, many of them civil aircraft like this one. It appears that Aurora was encouraged by the sale of the ex-Comet civil aircraft, as it expanded the line with it's own molds in the early 1960s.

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.
