Micro Models The 1937 Super Buccaneer - 36 inch Wingspan Flying Aircraft, 2/5, F108

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

This is a reproduction of a classic design and is just under half the size of the original. It includes full size plans, pre-cut parts and is authentically scaled from the original design. There is no assembly and the model is complete. A great gas model designed to climb fast and high then 'Sniff for Thermals', the honored pastime of a generation of model enthusiasts. Flying model aircraft predated powered flight; however, balsa wood and printwood were not introduced until the early 1930s and the hobby took off, as well as the hunt for thermals. Gas flight began in the early 1930s, and powered models (most all driven by Brown engines) took home so many awards that they were forever separated in competition from rubber powered models. Design of gas models was tricky since RC (radio control) models could not yet be applied to the mass market; so a gas model had to not only fly and climb under power, but then glide sufficiently - all in a stable fashion and without any operator inputs once the airplane took off.

AMT 1955 Ford Fairlane Victoria 2 Door HT Friction Drive Promo And 1950 Ford Four Door Sedan Key Wind Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM++

Sold   

Includes both promos. The 60 Special still includes the friction drive; the Golden Hawk's drive has been removed. Original dealer models are in 'very good' condition. The body of the '55 is above average but it does have some warping, the most obvious being the 'kick-up' at the front of the front fenders; the 1950 is much better than average has only a small amount, mainly slight 'dishing' of the hood as shown. Factory plastic color and body paint are original, glossy and display very nice but both have general wear as shown. The clear on the Victoria is intact but has some of the typical buckling. The mirrored clear on the 1950 is in amazing 'excellent++' condition but it could use some cleaning. Both of these were always adult collector owned, so the tires are like new with no wear. No parts are missing and they are original except that some of the fine trim (door handles, trim, etc) has been correctly and very neatly adult painted. The quality is good enough to pass for factory paint.
