Hawk Grumman F7F -2N Tigercat, 1/48, 101

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


From 1945. Rare kit for the advanced collector. This issue is in a very 'fancy' box for solid model kits from this time. It is a hardbox with a litho 'slick' showing a nice illustration of the aircraft. The model contains a 3D carved and tapered wooden main fuselage, two fully finished hardwood engine nacelles, two 3D carved and tapered rear nacelles/wheel housings, nicely 2D cut wings, rudder and elevator, two metal seats for the interior, wood stock, clear vacuform canopy in excellent condition, two plastic propellers, pre-carved wheels, color decals, large and complete cardboard template set and full-size, well-detailed plans with full instructions.

ITC Dornier Do-X Flying Boat - (DoX), 1/156, 3721

Famous German Flying Boat of the 1930s. Dornier dreamed that this huge aircraft would become a trans-oceanic airliner. Passenger traveled in ocean-liner like luxury.

Aurora Messerschmitt Me-109 (Bf-109) - Blue Short Box Ends- Famous Fighters of All Nations, 1/48, 55A-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM-


I believe this is the 4th edition of this kit, and the first issue with this Jim Cox boxart. Dates from mid 1955 with small 'Aurora Line' rectangular logo and 'Famous Fighters of All Nations'. It is interesting that this issue did not carry the standard Aurora 'Northern Lights' logo for 1956 - perhaps it was designed at the end of 1955 and simply left that way. Correctly molded in metallic burgundy and clear with the correct rectangular clear stand. For this issue the factory changed the swastikas on the tail to iron crosses and decals as well. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

In the late 1950s/early 1960s, Lindberg came out with a complete line of vacuformed rubber powered flying models. The kits were all prepainted, had large wingspans and were quite attractive for flying models. They also included the rubber band, spring wire landing gear and injection molded wheels, propeller and bushing. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including instructions, which are on the back along with an adjustment guide for flying.

"Dime Scale" models are now a class flown in some competitions. Kit consists of contest grade printwood, contest quality strip wood, machine cut balsa propeller, the best Japanese tissue, wooden wheels, competition bushed nose plug, brass thrust washers, prop shaft, prop freewheeler, FAI rubber strip motor and a copy of a genuine dime scale plan that was used in the 1930s-1940s.

Solid wooden model from the 1930s.

Jack Mair, a former Comet Model Airplane & Supply Co. salesman bought the company in the early 1940s and renamed it Maircraft. Mair continued with the same logo and 1/48 scale and went on to make one of the rarest and valuable 1/48 scale wooden kits ever - the Maircraft DC-3. The company went out of business just as production began on the DC-3, which was in 1947.

Comet Focke-Wulf FW-190 A - 'Super Stars' Series 21 inch Wingspan Flying Model, 1621-250

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Purchased new on April 22, 1972 at a local Kmart in Cleveland, OH. Large scale issue for rubber or gas free flight, or easily converted to RC using today's tiny and light servos and receivers. Box art is by Locher, who did a great deal of the Monogram box artwork also.

Never started and inventoried complete. Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.

Frog SE 210 Caravelle Air France, 1/96, F357

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Rare, big scale kit from the 1950s. The box is nice with four solid corners but has creasing and wear as shown. Inside, the kit is molded in the correct clear and silver with the correct big Frog base that was unique to these larger kits. Even the original glue capsule is included. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. As often happened, the decals were folded at the factory; that and age have caused some minor lifting on the decals.
