Yeoman-A A Hales Ltd Yeoman Clipper - 22 inch Wingspan Glider

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$69   

This model can be hand, catapult or towline launched. Yeoman kits were produced by A.A. Hales, Ltd of Potters Bar, Middlesex, Great Britain. Yeoman made prefabricated flying aircraft and stick and tissue gliders or rubber powered aircraft; there are other products that I am likely not aware of. This kit comes with all quality balsa die cut parts, shaped wing panels, shaped and slotted leading and trailing edge wing spars, plywood parts, finished tailplane and fin, full size plan, and detailed step by step instructions. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. 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.

Still factory sealed. The ideal scale accessory for the 'Wagons' series from Craft Master. It features two same-scale Ox that are beautifully carved from Ponderosa Pine, yoke, wire and illustrated instructions. Each ox measures 4.5 inches long and 3.1 inches high when assembled. This excellent series contained several other kits, all done to the same (unlisted) scale - Covered Wagon, Log Wagon, Jerky Wagon, Mule Team, Horse Team, Ox Team, Jail Wagon, Yellowstone Wagon, Buckboard Wagon, Sheepherders Wagon, Ore Wagon, Conestoga Wagon, Milk Wagon, Chuck Wagon, Delivery Wagon, Dray Wagon, Stage Coach and Water Wagon.

Aurora Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina - Scale Error Version, 1/74, 374-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$135   

Rare, first issue artwork from about 1955-56. This was a fine effort by Aurora for that time and an impressive model when assembled. Features retracting pontoons and rotating props. Includes correct early logo instructions which show the clear 'Triangle World' stand and the correct stand is included. This must be one of the first instances of the 'Triangle' stand being used as it is normally associated with oval 'Famous Fighter' logo kits. Molded in gloss silver and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please note the 'good' grade due to small white paint spots at the right and a slight crunch at the upper right corner. It is interesting to note that the early Aurora PBY issue has at least three small variations to the box top. The very first issue says '1/4 SCALE MODEL' at the top right. Clearly, this kit is not 1/48 scale and someone at Aurora corrected it. Following that, there are two known corrections: early and late. On the early version, the '1/4' was blotted out with a dark blue oval or circle and '5/32' was added after the word 'SCALE.' It was now correct, but the appearance was not completely professional. This box is the early, uncorrected version.

Ray Hawker Typhoon, 1/43

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$26   

Rare kit, probably from the late 1940s but the actual date is not known. Large scale model that is solid wood. Features 'Ray-Ring' fuselage, a novel and useful feature to make fuselage finishing easier. Instead of using template to shape the fuselage, the templates have already been used and at those locations the fuselage is already carved to final shape! You simply carve in between the pre-carved section until they match - a very nice idea. Also includes factory cut wings, fully finished wheels, clear vacuform canopy (known as the 'Ray-Closure') in excellent condition and not yellowed, very high quality printwood, full color insignia, very nice full size plans including building instructions. The kit has never been started and is complete. Ray Aircraft Products Co. was located in West Chester Pennsylvania. They mention this is the '5nd of the RAY SOLID MODELS'. The Hellcat was #2. Little else is known.
