Comet Phantom Fury - 32 Inch Wingspan Endurance Competition Flying Airplane, 3207-98

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

Sold   

1970s reissue of one of the more famous free-flight models of the 1930s. These aircraft were common in the 1930s when the sport of free-flight model airplanes reached it's zenith. It was not uncommon for these models to fly for 45 minutes or more on rubber power alone - many flew out of site, and it became common practice to write your name, address and phone number on the covering tissue. Kit features traditional wood/tissue construction, detailed full size plans, building instructions, hardware, wheels, tissue and propeller. 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.

Aurora Boeing F4B-4 - (F4B4), 1/48, 122-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

SALE!! Jo Kotula boxart is dated 1958 but judging from the 79 cent price extension, this kit is from the middle 1960s. In the day this was considered a fine kit and rated highly in reviews. The F4B-4 was a classic 1930s Navy Biplane Fighter that is still famous for their colorful paint jobs at that that time. Cowl, tail and trim color would vary with the group's Aircraft Carrier (Ranger, Lexington or Saratoga and the aircraft's position in the flight formation. The kit has never been started. NOTE: Missing two small wing bombs. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts present and decals and instructions.
