Hasegawa Boeing B-47E Stratojet, 1/72, 1223

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$42   

Very nicely detailed with fine raised panel detail, cockpit, open/closed bomb bay doors with internal iron bomb load, tail 'stinger' and detailed landing gear with good wheel well detail. Never started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed bag; the larger parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete. Includes decals and instructions. NOTE: the decals have some age cracking on the upper right corner (there was moisture exposure at that spot). For new aftermarket decals, I recommend the excellent sheets From Warbird Decals and Caracal Models. The B-47 was a very advanced aircraft at the time. The XB-47 first flew in 1947. The big jet's speed was equal to or greater than all current fighter aircraft, so it received radar-controlled twin 20mm cannons in the tail as the only guns. Through the use of mid-air refueling, the B-47 gave SAC it's first all-jet force for nuclear or regular bomb delivery. Although it was tricky to fly, Stratojets flew into the mid 1960s. A program to strengthen the wings for low-level attack was responsible for prolonging the service life.

Comet Sento Ki-001 Japanese Navy Fighter Official Identification Kit, 1/72, IA-16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$54   

A very rare kit from about 1941/42. This model is 'Identical to the one used in the Model Building Program of the US Office of Education sponsored by the US Navy, Bureau of Aeronautics' which was a program launched in 1941. During WWII the higher speed of aircraft made the traditional WW1 'recognition cards' nearly useless and 3D models were needed. The US Armed Forces looked to the general population to produce recognition models. While not fully successful due to irregular quality and supply, it quickly paved the way for superior injection molded recognition models. This kit features wood blocks, sheets and stock, glue, sandpaper, an excellent, very thick paper template, outline & gauge sheet as well as fold-out full size plans with aircraft history and detailed carving and building instructions. Never started and complete. Although misidentified, the "Sento Ki-001" is a single-engine, low wing monoplane (that is not a Zero). The large right end flap on the box has fallen off and is inside the box. The left one, with the name of the kit, is present. The box is only 'good-'.

Comet Stinson - 6 Inch Wingspan Solid Wood Model Airplane, 1/68, S6

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$22   

Rare 1950 issue is very near to 1/72 scale. The model Features 2D factory cut fuselage & wing, a die-cut sheet of parts, fully finished wheels and excellent plans/instructions. NOTE: the fuselage has been slightly started. There is no other assembly. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts & plans present. In the 1930s and 1940s, most modelers built the flying stick and tissue type models with rubber, co2 or gas power. But there were a small but measurable percent that built solid aircraft display models of great detail. This required great skill worthy of the shipbuilders of old, especially considering the limited offerings. Many manufacturers, such as Comet issued blocks of wood and a plan - the famous (or infamous) 'Make Wood Look Like Plane' kits.

Comet Republic P-47D Thunderbolt - 24 Inch Wingspan Flying Aircraft, 3502-298

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$39   

1970s large-scale issue for rubber or gas free flight, or easily converted to RC using today's tiny and light servos and receivers. Kit features traditional wood/tissue construction, large insignia sheet, detailed full size plans that include text building instructions and additional construction drawings, fully formed & finished main and tail wheels & thrust button, hardware, tissue, clear canopy material and pattern, propeller, rubber motor and more. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. 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.

The box top is complete with all four sides and top but is tattered on and along the lower long side; there is also general wear and damage as shown. It does display better than the grade, but is rated as such due to the damage on the box sides The tray (bottom box) is 'very good-' with some wear to the edges.

Flaws are a 3" closed tear and the normal yellowing.
