Wright-Dayton Co Grumman F4F -3 Wildcat Plywright Solid, 1/48, PW-1

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Very rare. From the very early 1940s. Wright-Dayton was located at Front & Second Strs, Dayton Ohio. The instructions state that this flying glider was 'designed by the chief engineer of the Wright-Dayton Company, who helped built and fly the original Wright Airplane." No small claim and not an idle one! Upon further investigation, the un-named chief engineer is James M.H. Jacobs. He filed the patent for this glider in 1937; he is also named in patents with Wilber Wright. Sure enough, he was an engineer who certainly worked closely with the Wright Brothers. This is a very nice, true-scale, deluxe (for the time) solid wood model of bread-and butter construction. Features 9 excellent, factory cut hardwood profiles for the bread-and-butter fuselage with dowel pin alignment, templates (on the instructions) for final sanding, very nice profile cut hardwood wings, horizontal and vertical stabilizers, die cut hardwood display stand, a factory sealed envelope of small parts, an excellent color insignia sheets with starts, wing walks, retracted wheels and gear doors, oil coolers, canopy with frames, tail wheel, side windows and stand name plate and excellent full size instructions with detail assembly drawings and excellent step-by-step instructions. Never started and complete with all parts and paperwork.

Wright-Dayton Co Wright Aerial Torpedo Flying Balsawood Glider

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Rare. Exact date is unknown, but is from the late 1930s or early 1940s. Wright-Dayton was located at Front & Second Strs, Dayton Ohio. The instructions state that this flying glider was 'designed by the chief engineer of the Wright-Dayton Company, who helped built and fly the original Wright Airplane." No small claim and not an idle one! Upon further investigation, the un-named chief engineer is James M.H. Jacobs. He filed the patent for this glider in 1937; he is also named in patents with Wilber Wright. Sure enough, he was an engineer who certainly worked closely with the Wright Brothers. This is a rubber-band launched folding wing type model - when it slowed down near peak altitude, the wings would deploy and results in a long glide. It comes with a balsa body, factory attached red, white and blue tail feathers, metal nose weight (preinstalled) that has a launch hook, two balsa wings with excellent red printed design that says 'Wright Aerial Torpedo', factory applied tin folding tabs on the inboard wings, a rubber band/launch hardwood stick, full instructions and even the rubber bad (no good, but present, stuck to instructions). Complete and never used.

Academy Boeing B-17D 'Swoose' Flying Fortress, 1/72, 1683

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Beautiful model of the early Fortress 'Swoose' that lead an exciting career as a transport aircraft after serving as a bomber in the South Pacific. After service against the Japanese early in the war, she found her way to Australia and served as a navigational leader for other formations. Then General Brett made her his personal transport. The aircraft survived the war, the only 'D' Fortress to do so and is being restored in Dayton OH by the Air Force Museum. When I saw her there many years ago, you could still clearly see the original 'Swoose' painting on the fuselage. Well molded with all fine recessed panel lines. Features excellent cockpit detail, optional position landing gear, rotating props and wheels and more. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Maintrack Supermarine 508 - Bagged, 1/72, PX-015

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed

Sold   

Kit is still factory sealed. Bag has a tear at right, but all small metal parts are in an internally sealed bag and all other parts are present. Very high quality vac kit. Features excellent moldings, full decals for both airplanes and many metal details. Kit is of Type 529 VX136 or VX133. Initially designed as an undercarriage-less aircraft for use from the 'flexible deck' aircraft carrier being though of at the time. Interest was quickly lost in the flexible deck and the Admiralty ask for real landing gear. This was easily incorporated into the design, and the 508 was born. The aircraft has folding wings, an offset nosewheel, two very early 'Avon' engines and a unique variable incidence tail. Performance was good, and the 3rd prototype was given swept wings...which gave birth to the Scimitar fighter.
