Maircraft Douglas SBD-3 Dauntless, 1/48, H-8

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$24   

From the 1940s. Features 3D cut fuselage, nicely 2D cut wings and tail feathers, stock wood, printwood, fully formed turned wheels and engine nacelle, full color decals (which are water stained) and excellent full-sized plans. Never started and complete. Maircraft was originally founded in the early or mid 1930s by Gordon Christoph and went by the name Aircraft Model Company. The company produced a typical line of solid 'profile cut' kits that required the usual high talent levels for carving and finishing. A former Comet Model Airplane & Supply Co. salesman, Jack Mair, bought the company in the early 1940s and renamed it Maircraft. This company was one of the handful of solid kit producers who issued models in a consistent 1/48 scale during the 1930s and 1940s (others included Hawk and Dyna-Model). This lead to one of the most desirable and rare model kits ever produced in the USA - the wood/plastic 1/48 United DC-3 model issued immediately after World War 2. Other than the P-61 and a few other Maircraft offerings, most were simple kits that sold for the low price of about 35 cents and gave the owners many hours of pleasurable work.

Marvel Ryan STM-2 - Combat Planes Of America Series - Solid Wood Aircraft, 1/32

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor

$34   

Rare, large 1/32 scale solid model from 1942. At that time, their were 'fliers' and 'solids.' 'Fliers' were notoriously off-scale and lacked detail so they would fly well. 'Solids' were true scale models that were solid wood and designed only to be scale miniatures (they did not fly). This kit has a very worn box but inside everything is in very good condition. Features a 12 inch wingspan, balsa blocks and wood stock, printwood, color insignia sheet and quality plans with construction notes, cross section templates as well as a painting guide. Never started and complete. Marvel Mfg. Company was located in Seaford, Long Island, New York and had an extensive line of solid aircraft, wooden ships, army tanks and more. Just as a small example, the following are advertised on the back of this larger-scale solid kit: Grumman JRF-2, Mariner PBM-1, Bell YFM-1, P-38, P-40, Baltimore, Ryan STM-2, Curtiss AT-9, Douglas A-20A, Republic Guardsman, Grumman Skyrocket and Douglas 8A-5.

Master Modelcraft Supply Co Fiat CR-40 - Actually A CR-42 DB or CR-30 or CR-32, 1/40, 12MM

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$29   

Likely from the 1940s. This is a solid wood model with an 8 inch wingspan. Features 2D cut fuselage block, quality printwood wings, die-cut horizontal and vertical stabilizer, printwood, die-cut propeller, fully formed wheels, wood stock, blue insignia sheet and very nice full size plans with templates, text instructions and even the color scheme. Complete and never started. NOTE: Master Modelcraft advertises this as a CR-40. Most reference material I have shows a CR40 with a radial engine, which this model clearly does not have. The in-line engine and the lines of the ship align much more with a CR-42DB, CR30 or CR32. I believe it is actually one of those two and they simply made an error in the name.
