In early 1946, USAAF issued requirement for a new attack bomber to succeed the Douglas A-26 Invader. The Martin Company entered the competition and won; the aircraft was given the designation XA-45. Soon later USAAF revised its requirement for better close-support bombing. Martin accepted the new requirement and received a contract for two prototypes; the project was redesignated XB-51. The first XB-51 made its 1st flight on Oct 1949 and became the fastest ground support bomber at that time. In 1950, with the outbreak of the Korean War, the USAF called for a new night intruder bomber. The XB-51 and English Electric Canberra entered in competition. The XB-51 was faster but the Canberra had much better endurance. After a fly-off in 1951, the Canberra was chosen as the winner. In 1952 the XB-51 project was canceled. Although Martin lost the XB-51 order, they received a license to produce the Canberra under designation B-57.

Monogram Speedee-Bilt Long Midget - ex Midget Mustang - Flying Scale Model, G6-100

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+


Formerly released as the Midget Mustang. Scale flying rubber powered wooden model. 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. In the early 1950s, shortly before plastic kits were available, Monogram changed to the 'hardbox' with a lithographic slick glued to the top as this kit. Speedee-Bilt kits contained die cut and pre painted wooden parts, completely formed airfoil wings, carved wheels and numerous plastic details like cowlings, pilot, missiles, prop and more. Assembly was by detailed full size plans. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present

Novo De Havilland Comet 4 - Jet Airliner - BOAC - (ex Frog), 1/96, F356

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


Rare kit in large scale of the world's first jet airliner. The initial Comet Is were in operation long before the 707, which gave the British an incredible post-war lead in the expanding civil aviation market. Just as the Comet was flying high and orders were pouring in from around the world, Comets began to mysteriously fall out of the sky. Everything from lighting to terrorist bombs were blamed. For months the root cause went undiscovered. Then, in a landmark investigation that is considered the first modern post-crash autopsy, it was discovered that the stresses around a small ADF window on the top of the fuselage were causing metal fatigue failure when the fuselage was pressurized. To confirm this, a Comet I was placed in a water tank and subjected to pressurization stresses. After some time, a dramatic failure occured. Then parts of a crashed Comet were pulled from underwater proving once and for all that this was the root cause. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
