Strombecker Douglas DC-3 Flagship - American Airlines, C-35

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$129   

Before plastic kits were introduced, Strombecker was famous as the premier manufacturer of very highly prefabricated hardwood models. From the 1930s to the 1950s Strombecker kits were flawlessly engineered but not inexpensive. All wooden parts are quality hardwood (not balsa) and are precarved to final shape; usually a quick sanding would finish them. When complete it makes an impressive desk top display with a 10.5 inch wingspan. This example even includes the original glue, wood filler and sandpaper. Never started. Inventoried complete with all parts, decals and detailed plans, instructions. Decals are in amazing "Near Mint" condition.

Nice small scale model from Japanese molds of unknown origin. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

UPC did not cut their own molds, but bought kits already molded from other manufacturers and re-boxed the kits in the USA.

Aurora Lockheed P-38 Lightning, 1/48, 99-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$115   

This model is in amazing, investment-grade 'Near Mint' condition. The box has brand-new color and gloss and the only flaws are very light wear, mainly on the lower edges of the long box sides. Aurora did a major face-lift on the P-38 in 1959 with fantastic and new Jo Kotula box artwork. Although dated 1959, this kit is from the mid 1960s due to the '130' price extension and the lack of 'Famous Fighters' in the oval logo. Molded in olive drab and clear has the 'triangle-base' clear stand and stand arm. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.

Monogram Speedee-Bilt Grumman F9F Panther Jet - Flying Scale Model For Jetex Engine, G-16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$159   

Rare model from the early 1950s. Not only is this a first issue but it is in a most unusual two piece box; the outer box is a heavy cardboard sleeve which is decorated on all four sides; the inner 'tray' has advertising on both short ends and also on the small upper end flaps where it says "Now...Enjoy Many Pleasant Moments While You Assemble This MONOGRAM MODEL". This is a scale flying wooden rubber powered model for gliding or JETEX power. Before there were plastic models, there were wooden aircraft kits. These usually came in two types - solid and stick and tissue. The solid models were static and usually contained a few blocks of balsa and sometimes a detail part or two. These "Make Wood Look Like Plane" models required a very high level of skill in carving and finishing. The stick and tissue variety were slightly easier to build and provided the ultimate thrill - they could fly when complete with rubber power (and later with free-flight gas and eventually RC). They still required a great deal of skill, so manufacturers sought ways to make model building more accessible to everyone. One idea was pre-carving and/or prefabrication. This raised prices, naturally. Many manufacturers launched lines of 'easy' to build flying models but only Monogram succeeded in making an entire line at an affordable price that would actual fly. The original "Speedee-Bilt" kits were in one-piece two-color boxes or the two piece 'sleeve' box like this kit. (In the mid 1950s, shortly before plastic kits were available, Monogram changed to the 'hardbox' with a lithographic slick glued to the top). Speedee-Bilt kits contained die cut, factory painted wooden parts, completely formed airfoil wings (the famous and beautiful 'Monofoil'), carved wheels and numerous plastic details like the cowling, pilot, missiles, prop and more, depending on the kit. Assembly was by detailed, illustrated plans. The Panther Jet features die-cut dark Navy Blue painted balsa parts, a perfect Monofoil wing, completely carved fuselage blocks, stringers, completely finished wheels, numerous plastic detail parts such as nose, intakes, gear struts, exhaust section, pilot bust and wing-mounted rockets, clear vacuform canopy (still in mint condition, clear and not yellowed), sandpaper, full color decals, Navy Blue covering material and full instructions. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and paperwork present. The decals and instructions are both in 'excellent+' condition. My father has a fine memory and story regarding this model. During the Michigan winter months, he would naturally build models. However, they could not be flown outside so he would fly them in the basement on a tether line hooked to a full gallon paint can. This was even done with gas powered control line aircraft, using a hair pin to keep the elevator fixed in the right position! After finishing the very beautiful Speedee-Bilt F9F, he decided to install the recommended Jetex motor and do some tether flying. The Jetex started flawlessly and propelled the very light weight model to very high speeds. However, the heat of the motor casing soon caught the back on fire. It was a fascinating spectacle to watch the Panther jet circling wildly while trailing a foot or more of flame from the aft section. Finally the flames reached something important, and the craft split in two which quickly ended one of the most memorable and entertaining of all basement winter flights.

Amodel Yermolayev Er-2ON - Er-2 ON Soviet Long Range Transport, 1/72, 72110

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$52   

Rare. The Er-2ON was derived from the Er-2 Long Distance Bomber which was designed by V.G. Ermolayev and first built in Aviation Plant #18 in Voronezh in 1940. Several dozen Er-2s were built before the start of WWII. In 1944 Aviation Plant #39 in Irkutsk mass produced a new version of this aircraft with diesel engines. Pilots like this aircraft for the stability, robust construction and comfortable cockpit. Irkutsk produced 391 of the Er-2 variants between 1944 and 1946. At the end of 1944 the design bureau of P.O. Sukhoy made four aircraft with a comfortable passenger cabin for government officials, and these were called Er-2 ON, which is this model kit. The model features fine recessed surface detail, good cockpit, correct passenger window configuration and more. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora Halberstadt CLII Test Shot - (CL-II / CL.II), 1/48, 136-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$149   

Very rare. Factory Test shots were done in colorless plastic to confirm that new molds were ready for production. They seldom left the factory; most were destroyed but some leaked out, usually through employees. This model came from a long time collector and archiver/historian who sold it in the late 1990s; I obtained it from him. The first issue box, dated 1959 with 98 cent price extension has 'Famous Fighters' around the early oval sunburst logo, Parents' Magazine seal and Jo Kotula boxart. Since two different molds were used for the Aurora WWI kits, the main aircraft parts are in clear plastic and the black parts are made from black plastic. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
