Dumas Essex Class Aircraft Carrier 36 Inches Long, 1/290

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

Very, very rare kit from 1945. This is the only one I have ever seen or heard of. Dumas advertised this kit as 'A beautiful 36" model as accurate as possible under war conditions' and that was no idle boast. By all appearances it was the most detailed US aircraft carrier model ever made to that date. Features hollow construction, airwing, factory marked bulkhead balsa blocks, high quality balsa printwood, other wood as required, metal stock, rigging material, sandpaper, an unopened can of 'Delicate Gray' Gloss Enamel (with a 'Four Hour Drying Time") and a glass bottle of glue. Amazingly, the glue and paint area still both a liquid and not dried up. Comes with text instructions and plans. The two very large sheets of plans were drawn by Al Dumas Jr. They include full side and top elevation views, sectional views and a large number of detail drawings for AA guns, aircraft construction and much more. There is light bug damage to one side of one sheet but it is minor. The kit has not been started. The contents are mint - you will be the first to remove them from the box. They are still factory packed with factory packing paper. Dumas says inside this is an Essex-Class carrier, but due to wartime censorship and the initial secrecy surrounding the Essex class, the kit is not a perfect Essex. When more information became available after the war, this may have been why the model was discontinued so soon.

The entire Comet 1950s "N" line included the following (gaps mean there is no kit, at least at that time): N1 Tiger Shark P-40, N2 F-86D Sabre Jet, N4 Globe Swift, N6 Taylorcraft, N8 F-51 Mustang, N9 Helicopter, N11 Ryan Navion, N12 Firefly, N15 Piper Cub, N16 Fokker DVII, N17 Spad, N24 Phantom Fury, N25 Aeronca K (floats) and N26 Stinson SR-7. 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.

Jo-Han 1960 Desoto Adventurer Two Door Hardtop, 1/25, 2760-140

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Rare original issue. This is a one-owner kit purchased new in Lexington KY in the early 1960s. The model is very well molded and with excellent detail for that time. Model features full engine and detailed compartment, opening hood, full interior, spotlight, gearshift/turn signal/tach assembly, seat belts and side view mirrors. Molded in white/ivory, clear, red-tinted clear, chrome plate parts and rubber tires. Chrome and clear are in 'excellent' condition. Inside, the kit is like new. It has never been started and is inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. The long, low lines and graceful fins stretching from the "A" pillar to the taillights made for a beautiful Desoto. Sales in 1960 lagged, however. It was not that the car was bad - the cars were reliable and stunning performers. Desoto was more the victim of corporate political infighting than anything else. The 1960s were the last full line, with a brief introduction of two Desoto Automobiles in 1961. Since Desoto cars were still in demand, some dealerships even sued the Chrysler Corporation for discontinuing the line.
