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.

Carl Goldberg Models Gentle Lady - 2-Meter R/C Sailplane, SP-1

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

This 78 and 1/4 inch wingspan glider is legendary for it's performance and still flown today. This model came from the estate of a very active and particular early aircraft kit collector. It is like factory-new inside and has not been started. Complete with all parts, plans and decals (if originally included). NOTE: this kit was factory packed in a rugged and sturdy box. The model will be shipped with this box only (no external box) unless you request otherwise. Carl Goldberg was a gifted designer of model aircraft, and his career spanned the evolution of flying models. His designs and number of titles won in competition at the Nationals is legendary. His first competition was the 1928 Nationals, where he received honorable mention. By 1934 he won the indoor Nats and in 1935 he opened a Hobby Shop, among the first in the nation (the first one was probably opened by Cleveland Models Ed Packard). Awards came quickly. He wrote articles for Model Airplane News, and was Comet's top designer from 1939 till 1945. After Comet, he worked with Mike Schlesinger and Sid Axelrod on what eventually became Top-Flite Models. In 1955 he founded Carl Goldberg Models and released a still-popular line of scale, rubber, gas, glider and RC models. Needless to say, Goldberg's models are of the highest quality.

Aurora Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina, 1/74, 374-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Rare, first issue artwork from about 1955-56. This was a fine effort by Aurora for that time and an impressive model when assembled. Features retracting pontoons and rotating props. Includes correct early logo instructions which show the clear 'Triangle World' stand. This correct stand is included. This must be one of the first instances of the 'Triangle' stand being used as it is normally associated with oval 'Famous Fighter' logo kits. Molded in gloss silver and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: one small "US NAVY" decal is cut out and missing. The rest of the decals are intact and in 'very good+' condition. The box displays better than the 'good' rating but is graded as such because of there is general wear as shown, fading on the right short side panel and some creasing on the lower long side panel. It is interesting to note that the early Aurora PBY issue has at least three small variations to the box top. The very first issue says '1/4 SCALE MODEL' at the top right. Clearly, this kit is not 1/48 scale and someone at Aurora corrected it. Following that, there are two known corrections: early and late. On the early version, the '1/4' was blotted out with a dark blue oval or circle and '5/32' was added after the word 'SCALE.' It was now correct, but the appearance was not completely professional. This box is the later version - on the next box order, they kept the '1/4' blotted out but added a proper looking '5/32' in front of the blot.

Monogram Racing Duesenberg Slot Car With Tiger X-200 Motor - Race As Stock Or Classic, 1/24, SR2406-698

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Very rare model for the advanced Monogram collector or slot car enthusiast. Dated 1964. When the slot car craze took hold, Monogram boldly introduced nine very well engineered 1/24 and 1/32 kits. The models were so well done and expensive that they did not sell well; $7 was a small fortune back when most models were between 29 and 98 cents. The Monogram Mercedes claims to be the "Most Complete Detailed Racing Model - Ready to Assemble and Go!" and it was no idle boast. Features light-weight brass chassis that is strong and rigid, precision steel threaded-end axles, bronze bearings, steel drawn crown gear, nylon pickup, braided pickup brushes, brass screws, nut and other hardware, precision lightweight aluminum machined wheels with threaded hubs, powerful new tiger X-200 12V motor, Tiger Traction rubber racing tires with complete Goodyear details and more. The car parts are molded in blue, black, white, chrome plate and clear plastic. Inside, the interior display cardboard and plastic is in 'very good++' condition. All of the parts that were originally factory sealed are still factory sealed except the motor. The motor is NOS (New Old Stock) and has never been run. The parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried 100% complete and includes 'near mint+' condition decals. Includes amazing 'mint' condition instructions and the " Tuning Tips / Alignment / International Racing Colors" booklet. Please NOTE that the box has correct and neat repairs to three closed split corners. They were repaired from the inside with light cardstock and book binding cement. The entire line of Monogram Slot Cars consisted of a 1/32 MGA Sports Car, 1/32 Deuce Roadster and the following 1/24 scale vehicles: '55 Chevy Hardtop, '40 Ford Pickup, Duesenberg, '34 Ford Coupe, '36 Ford Coupe, '58 T-Bird and Mercedes 540K. If you know your Monogram cars, you can see that Monogram wisely utilized the molds of pre-existing Four Star kits to make these motorized versions from.

Lindberg F7U-1 Cutlass - (F7U1), 1/48, 510-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

1956 or '57 Gaedke artwork with three aircraft and the carrier. Molded in medium blue and clear and includes decals for the box art aircraft including red and white checkerboards for the rudders. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. Please note that the box displays better than the 'good+' rating but is graded as such because there is clear tape on the long sides and also tape pull damage to one side as well as general wear. Dating Lindberg kits is problematic to a near complete lack of release information; early catalogs normally do not have dates, and there are no dates on early boxes or instructions & decals. However, by records kept when the kits were purchased new, we know this kit was issued either in 1956 or 1957.
