Comet Phantom Fury - 32 Inch Wingspan Endurance Competition Flying Airplane, 3207-100

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

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, quality printwood, stripwood and spars, fully formed wheels and thrust button, nose block, covering tissue, rubber motor, propeller and detailed full size plans with building instructions. Never started and inventoried complete. 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.

Comet Boeing 707 Stratotanker (367-80 - Dash 80), 1/125, PL800-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Comet originally began model production in 1929 with a line of balsa flying models. In the mid-1950s Comet made a beautiful line of small and medium scale aircraft and missile models with colorful boxes. The early issues were in one-piece 'flip-top' boxes, and the later issues and releases were in standard two-piece 'hardboxes' with a lithograph slick glued to the top box. In 1963 Comet sold the plastic kit molds to Aurora, who reissued some but not all of the kits. There were two Boeing 707 models made. This is the two-piece box larger scale (1/125) 'Stratotanker' - not really a tanker model at all, but a nice kit of the famous Dash-80 Prototype Tanker/707, which lead to the world's first commercially-successful airliner. Well molded with fine recessed panel lines, landing gear and prototype decals. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions in 'excellent++' condition.

Aurora Lockheed F-90 - West Hempstead Issue, 1/48, 33-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

Very, very early West Hempstead F-90 molded in Brooklyn gray. When Aurora issued it's first two plastic kits, they were copies of the Hawk Model Company's F9F and F-90 fighters. The first Aurora issue was in the rather plain and very rare flip-top one-piece box with the kit molded in gray with no landing gear and missiles from the Brooklyn factory. The second issue was also from Brooklyn and molded in gray with no landing gear or missiles but was in the new two-piece hardbox. The third official issue is the West Hempstead issue and is molded in silver with landing gear and missiles. But this is where it gets interesting. Aurora ran a tight ship and was famous for letting nothing go to waste. If there were extra boxes laying around after the new issue came out, there were used. The same went for old stands, old decals and even old injection molded kits. This gives the collector some very interesting scenarios. This kit is one of those. This is a Brooklyn 'Famous Fighters' box for the F-90. However, under the original tissue paper is a GRAY molded West Hempstead issue with landing gear and missiles- a case of using up the old plastic after doing a mold change. Plastic was delivered by rail car and stored in silos - a silo could last a long time and feed several mold machines. The decals are old Brooklyn with the correct large TATEM COMPANY script on the back. The stand is the large, clear rectangular Booklyn two-piece version, but during the mold modifications, Aurora machined the 'Brooklyn' markings from the mold and of course the stand. The instructions are the modified Brooklyn- they show the landing gear and missiles but with 'West Hempstead' under the old logo. An interesting piece for the advanced collector. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
