Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Large profile-scale flying model designed to fly a full stunt pattern on 65 miles per hour with a .09 engine. This is a highly prefabricated kit designed for strong, easy construction. Features pre-shaped hollow balsa wings with airfoil, die cut balsa and plywood, all necessary metal hardware, fully finished wheels, full size plans with complete building instructions and full color decals. The kit has never been started. The small parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed (larger wood parts and sheets of wood) have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions. Please note that the decals have bug damage to the backing paper but the actual transfers are undamaged. The plans have light, even bug damage as well which will not affect building the kit. 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.

Everything inside is still in factory-mint condition.

Halligan Aircraft Co The Halligan Plane Autographed by The Halligan Brothers, H-VR-100

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

Very rare and even more so in this condition and signed by the designers - Russell H Halligan and Francis Halligan signed the plans on 8-21-1976. I can only find reference to one of these kits changing hands since 1998. This is an operating model of the Halligan's unique aircraft. Features a 40 foot wingspan, over 79 parts all preformed and ready to assemble including die-cut wood parts, aluminum gears, aluminum shafts (drilled and threaded), aluminum bearings and stabilization bar, metal hardware where required, pre-shaped blades and hubs, fully formed wire landing gear, fully formed wheels, covering tissue, detailed plans, full text instructions and much more. The kit has never been started and is complete with all parts and paperwork. The model includes a news paper article (The Milwaukee Journal, Nov 17, 1979) about the brothers and the aircraft. The Halligan Plane was designed to take off and land without a runway, travel as fast or faster than convention aircraft and to be as easy to operate as the family car. The "Halligan Vertical Rising, Hovering and Self-Stabilizing" rotary wing airplane can do all those things and more say Russel and Francis Halligan. Neither has ever flown in a regular airplane, but the two brothers have spent most of their lives developing the unusual craft, which has flown only a few yards and has not left the ground since about 1930. It makes a great story and the owner of this kit can read all about it in the newspaper article.

William H Low Co 1800s Amoskeag Steamer (Steam Pumper) - Wilo Line Fire Truck, 1/24, FP7

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Very rare. Very highly prefabricated and detailed. Likely from the 1940s. William H Low Co., of Braintree Mass., issued the 'Wilo Line' which included a superb series of antique commercial firefighting equipment. The scale is given as 1/2" and the finished steamer is 8 inches long. The kits were very advanced for the time and shared many of the pre-fabrication methods of Hudson Miniatures. Features plastic injection molded spoke wheels, completely precarved boiler, a vast number of other completely carved and cut large and small wooden parts, numerous completely carved smaller wooden parts, numerous cast metal fittings, working metal bell, hoses, metal stock as needed, sandpaper, complete instructions, a parts layout, photos of the actual steamer and the model under assembly and complete, full size plans. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including instructions/plans. The kits in this line include Amoskeag Steamer, Hose Reel, Hose Wagon, Chemical Engine and many others. In most cases they are the only kits in existence of these historic vehicles. Bill Low did design at least one 'non-fire truck' kit in his Will-O-Line - a Conestoga Wagon, advertised as being 1/24 scale, kit #B14 for $2.85 listed as "This is another Museum Piece by Bill Low." After seeing these fire truck kits, I do not doubt that.
