Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor

Sold   

Rare 1960 issue of this original 'S' action kit. This edition is the US Naval Aviator Issue and has the slightly textured box with the framable John Steel box artwork. Features a host of operating features- wings fold, dive brakes operate, canopy slides to show detailed cockpit, landing gear retracts and cowling comes off to show fully detailed engine. Molded in the correct dark gloss blue and clear. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The decals are 'excellent+' condition, perfectly flat with some typical yellowing a the only flaw. Instructions are 'excellent++' condition. NOTE: the box is missing both short side panels, hence the 'poor' grade.

Sterling Ansaldo S.V.A. 5 - Drops Leaflets in Flight - 19 Inch Wingspan R/C / Freeflight / Control Line Flying Aircraft - (SVA-5), A18

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

19 inch wingspan kit for RC, free flight or control line. Includes innovative system for automatically dropping 'propaganda leaflets' in flight. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions. 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.

Comet Taylorcraft - 54 inch Wingspan Flying Model for RC, 3505-298

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

1960s very large-scale model with 54 inch wingspan. For rubber, gas free flight or RC (radio control). This is a reissue of a much older Comet kit. Features traditional wood/tissue construction with high-quality balsa pre-cut stringers and spars, balsa printwood, detailed full size plans, building instructions, wheels, rubber, tissue, prop shaft and wooden thrust bearing and a big balsa pre-carved (but not fully finished) propeller. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. Please note that the box is complete but is age discolored, has closed splits on the corners and some clear tape. 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.

Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Keystone Commuter - Midget Craft 6 inch wingspan Solid Balsa Airplane Model

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-they 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. He has done the same quality of work to the upper wings and has carefully cut out the other parts. The model is complete and would be easy to finish.
