Berkeley North American AJ-1 Savage Navy Bomber - Twin Gas Engines Plus Jetex Engine 27 Inch Wingspan Flying Aircraft, 1/32

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Very rare, and even more so in this condition. Large, true scale model with no deviations from the original prototype and designed for operation with three engines- two gas and one Jetex. For .045 to .099 gas engines for control line or can be converted to electric power. Highly prefabricated and features carved and hollowed fuselage and nacelles, five metal-hub rubber wheels, full decals, metal engine cowls, clear canopy, shaped leading and trailing edges, all die-cut parts, full size plans and more. The model has not been started. The hardware is still in the factory sealed paper bag, and the parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions. 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.

Aurora The Hartford - Admiral Farragut's Flagship at Mobile Bay, 1/115, 441-600

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

1966 issue. The Hartford was the flagship of Rear Admiral David Farragut. In the Hartford he lead the Union Fleet to capture the Confederate forts guarding Mobile Bay, the only part of the Gulf Coast still in Confederate hands. In this long battle Farragut scored one of the key naval victories of the war. Very large and well detailed kit. Measures over 2 feet long and features metal anchor chain, running and standing rigging and molded ratlines and sails. The kit has never been started. All gray and black parts are still in the factory sealed bags. The white parts were never factory sealed but have been inventoried complete. The brown parts bag had a split so I opened it and did an inventory and NOTE: missing (1) part, the martingale ('spike' down from the bowsprit). I have included a properly tapered yard of good size from a built Hartford so you can reproduce this part and build the model. Includes instructions, rigging materials and flag sheet.

Sold

The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The box top has amazing color and gloss but is graded 'excellent' because there is a ding on the right short side. The box tray is intact but has clear tape on part of it.

Aurora Convair 880 SuperJet TWA, 1/103, 384-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Dated 1961 and the first issue. Note the 'Hobby Kits' slogan in the border of the Aurora logo and the Parents' Magazine Seal at the lower left. Rare near 1/100 scale kit molded in white and clear with recessed control surface and door lines. Features clear cockpit windshield, full landing gear and a large clear 'Triangle World' stand. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The Convair 880 and its near sister 990 were very high performance airliners. Unfortunately they did not find favor with commercial operators. Only 65 880s were produced from 1959 to 1962. The aircraft was designed to be smaller and faster than the DC-8 and 707 - this market did not develop, however, and if it did it could have been served with less expensive designs. The 990 was a larger and faster (mach .91) airliner, but it failed to meet it's range criteria for east to west crossings of the USA. As a result, only 37 were made. Interestingly enough, several 990s continued to be operated by private owners and NASA operated two 990s for decades after the last 990 was phased out of commercial service.

Never started and complete.
