Revell Sears Buggy Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H45-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$44   

1953 early issue molded in green plastic. This is from the issues produced by Gowland & Gowland as it carrier their 'balloon' logo on the side. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Before the 1950s 'model building' never made the top 10 list of boy's activities. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream. Shortly after the turn of the century, many dedicated modelers built flying or static airplanes, ship, train, automotive or other subjects. Basic kits existed, but the majority of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s. The phenomenon of the Revell/Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' car kits was a significant force in proving that model building as a hobby could have mass appeal, provided that the kits were easy enough to build and finish. These 1/32 scale vehicles could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real car. The Highway Pioneers series lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys.

KVZ Junkers G-23 / G-24 - Swiss or Swedish Airlines (G23/G24), 1/72, 15600

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

There is a large decal sheet with Swedish or Swiss Airliner markings. The model has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The G24 was created due to the success of the F13 and the greatly increasing passenger traffic in Europe and overseas. It was clear to Junkers that a larger and more efficient aircraft was needed. Junkers filed his design application with the International Commission for Air Navigation and it was approved on February 8, 1925. However, the prototype was started in 1923 and by the summer of 1924 the first G23 was built. The three engine configuration carried two pilots and nine passengers comfortably and had baggage and mail storage aft and also a lavatory/toilet. Flight testing took place in autumn of 1924 near Nurnberg; however, it was decided to carry out the remainder of the testing in Dubendorf in Switzerland. As a result, the Swiss airline "Ad Astra Aero" immediately placed orders for the aircraft and in 1925 four machines were delivered. All aircraft of the first line (wk # 831 to 851) were designated G23. To get around the Treaty of Versailles, many individual components were shipped to Sweden were they were assembled by Aktie Bolaget Flyindustrie at Limhamn. These were fitted with more powerful engines also. This was very successful, so many Junkers-completed G23s were flown to Switzerland upon completion for the newer, more powerful engines. These Swedish build and also the modified aircraft were called G24s. To avoid treaty limitations, most were first registered with foreign airlines before being registered in Germany. When the restrictions were listed, the aircraft were quickly painted in German colors. This was a very successful design for that time and 70 G24s were built and pressed into a number of different services. During it's lifetime, a variety of engines were installed, often with the wing engines of a different type than the nose engine. Sometimes the wingspan was changed due to these installations. In 1928, the first line ships were revamped into single-engine cargo aircraft called F24s with a single BMW engine.

BMJR Models Miss America 1/2 - 48 Inch Wingspan, B-326

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG

$76   

Still factory sealed and retails new for $104. An excellent kit featuring traditional stick-and-tissue construction, laser cut wood parts, hardware, full size plans and instructions. The Miss America was originally designed by Fran Zaic in 1935 as a gas powered Free Flight model with an 84" wing span and later became a kit released by Scientific. In 1959 Joe Wagner and John Pond were discussing a new event for SAM competition: scaled down versions of 'Antique' gas models of the 1930's, to be powered with Cox .020 engines. From this, the 020 Replica event was spawned. For this event Joe designed the 1/2 size Miss America. The BMJR Miss America 1/2 has a wing loading of just over 8oz per ft. making it legal for SAM Texaco. The Miss America 1/2 may be powered with Texaco .049 or electric. With a 42 inch wingspan, she is perfect for the Texaco Speed 400 event. This design was later published in the 1961 Model Airplane News with electric power and R/C in an article by Bill Winter. The BMJR kit was developed from an original hand drawn plan from 1959 provide by Joe with permission to develop this kit. This model is true to the original with some subtle changes to the rudder, elevator, and structure for RC control and a simplified landing gear mounting. Flying weight of this model is 13.5 oz. with a 238 sq. inch wing area.
