Comet Junkers Ju-87 D-7 Stuka Super Stars Series - 31 inch Wingspan R/C Flying Aircraft, 1/16, 3650

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG

Sold   

Still factory sealed but the seal has split as shown. Rare. From the early to mid 1970s. Big 1/16 scale model is designed for R/C operation, gas .020 or .049 control line/free flight and rubber powered- or even as a detailed static display model. Box art is by Locher, who did a great deal of the Monogram box artwork also. This is a very nice and well detailed model for that time featuring 'Tube-O-Matic' fuselage construction, 'Rugged Super X Simplified Non-Warping Wing' light-weight plastic nose cowl, spinner, wheel pants, bomb, radiators (under wing and chin), machine gun and more, beautiful clear vacuformed 'greenhouse' canopy (in great condition, not yellowed), completely formed metal gear struts, finished wheels and nose button, plywood firewall, all die-cut balsawood, factory-cut stripwood and leading & trailing wing edges, covering tissue, very colorful and comprehensive insignia sheet, detailed full size plans with building instructions and more. 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.

Hobby M24 Chaffy Light Scouting Tank Motorized With 5 Actions, 1/31, Z51-350

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

Very, very rare. As a matter of fact, John Burns never listed this manufacturer, and according to Worthpoint one has never appeared on Ebay or any on-line auction or sale. Clearly of Japanese original and possibly the second issue but the mold origins are unknown. The box says 1/35, but the instructions (correct and also marked "Hobby") say 1/31. This is a scale model, and has the typical detail of Japanese tank kits of the early/mid 1960s. It is very unique in that one motor performs five actions - it can go straight, turn right then back to the left after a short run, go in circles (I think), do a U Turn and the turret rotates right and left. This is done through a fascinating and complicated gear, cams and lever system. There are no less than 11 gears with many other pieces of metal hardware. The TKK Mabuchi 25 motor is included and in a 'very good' condition early TKK box. The motor is still wrapped in the printed plastic bag and the accessories are present. Inside, the kit is just like it left the factory. All the parts except the upper and lower hull and treads are still in factory sealed bags. The decals look 'excellent' and the instructions are 'near mint.' Amazingly, the treads are completely intact and fully flexible! 'Hobby' issued other tanks as well - the side of the box shows a Soviet tank labeled "III", a JGSDF Type 61 tank and a M41. No others are listed. Please email me if you have more information on this manufacturer. NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured.

Sold   

Nice quality kit from original Casadio molds. Features separately molded main and secondary battery turrets, catapults and aircraft, two helicopters, life boats and full-hull length camo decals.

There is no other assembly and zero painting. Inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions. MPC did a very nice job marketing these kits - the box sides contain interesting ship history, and the instructions include specifications and a large, fold-out illustrated engagement map with battle details.

Guillows Arrow - 28 inch Wingspan - Rubber or Gas Powered Freeflight Aircraft, 702

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Early issue hardbox from 1967. Quality stick-and-tissue model designed for long distance/high endurance rubber-powered or .020 Pee-Wee gas powered flights. Features quality die-cut balsa parts, stripwood and spars, light plastic vacuform spinner, exhaust & pilot bust, plastic prop and thrust button, contest rubber, fully formed wheels, balancing clay, metal gear struts and prop shaft, clear windshield material, decals, two colors of covering tissue, full size plans, detailed instructions on flying and more. The model has not been started and inventoried 100% complete. Guillow's founder, Paul K. Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.

Original issue hardbox from 1962. NOTE: complete and never started but missing instructions and decals. Even includes AMT body putty and sandpaper as well as the World's Fair 'Cat' flyer. At the time of shipping, only 4 parts are off the trees. This is a one-owner kit purchased new by a discriminating collector - he opened the boxes only to remove the instructions and decals for 'safe keeping' - and now they are gone. Very well detailed kit with numerous extras. Features full interior, realistic upholstery material, a huge variety of customizing parts, detailed trailer, operating floor jack, fire extinguisher, gas cans and a Chrysler display racing engine with 6 variations. I can only find one tire burn, and I believe it is on a custom part.
