Airfix Bristol Superfreighter Silver City Decals and Flyer - Type 2 Issue, 1/72

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

Rare second logo issue. This issue also contains an original fold-out flyer from Silver City Airways LTD. The flyer shows gives a minute by minute breakdown of how simple and fast the Silver City Air Ferry is to use. There is a route map and 14 photos on the flyer also. Large and nicely done kit. Features movable control surfaces, opening cargo loading doors, loading ramps and crew as well as Silver Cities decals. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The Superfreighter was an improved version of the Bristol Freighter. It was designed in 1952 and entered service in 1953 with Silver City Airways. Superfreighter's ease of maintenance, rugged design and ability to carry large loads made it immediately successful with the RAF and eight other air forces around the worlds, as well as with several airlines. Channel Air Bridge even operated a car ferry service across the channel.

Monogram B-24 Liberator Speedee-Bilt, 1/60, H4-495

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

Dated 1954. This is the finest H4 Liberator that I have seen. The box has like-new color and gloss, four solid corners and only light general wear. The inside is like new also. Classic early multi-media kit with a fantastic internal box presentation. Before injection molded plastic kits were common, Monogram issued the famous 'Speede-Bilt' and 'Super Kits' which featured injection molded details and precarved wooden parts. Of these, the Speede-Bilt B-24 and B-17 were the finest. These kits are rare today due to their relatively high price of $4.95. This example is inventoried 100% complete with all parts, glue, dope, decals, sand paper, plans and instruction book. The kit has never been started. Still has all internal packing as shown. Amazingly, the celluloid plastic parts range from no warping to very slight warping. This is very rare, as that type of plastic was unstable and warp easily over time. Instructions, decals and plans are 'near mint' also, as are the parts sheet. No parts have been punched out. This kit must be shipped insured.

Best 1935 Gilmore Special Indianapolis 500 Winner, 1/30, 535-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

Very rare kit for the advanced collector. In the early 1950s Best Hobby Kits (Best Plastic Corporation of Brooklyn, NY) entered the infant USA plastic model kit market with a series of Indianapolis 500 winners. Six kits were issued - the 1920 Monroe Special, 1922 Murphy Special, 1931 Miller Special, 1935 Gilmore Special, 1940 Maserati Racer and 1953 Fuel Injection Special. The kits were priced correctly and featured 'Super Detailed' parts (for the time). It is unknown why the line failed to sell - it may have been distribution. Best was certainly not a large player in the business. The kit features real rubber Firestone racing tires, decals and some interior detail. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
