Comet Grumman Hellcat F6F Solid Wood Model Airplane, 1/64, H1

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

In the 1930s and 1940s, most modelers built the flying stick and tissue type models with rubber, co2 or gas power. But there were a small but measurable percent that built solid aircraft display models of great detail. This required great skill worthy of the shipbuilders of old, especially considering the limited offerings. Many manufacturers issued blocks of wood and a plan - the famous (or infamous) 'Make Wood Look Like Plane' kits. A few manufacturers made expensive super detailed kits with metal accessories (like Dyna-Products). Comet came in the middle and struck a nice balance of detail and cost. The F6F features profile cut parts, color decals, finished wheels, printwood, templates, wood stock and a very large and detailed sheet of drawings including detailed construction steps. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Revell Aerial Ladder American Firefighters, 1/48, F205-169

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Very Rare. From 1954. Box artwork by M Jovine is also dated 1954. Large kit in 1/48 scale. Molded in the correct white, red and gold. Includes three highly detailed horses, hitch, carriage with frame detail, rope and metal chain, along with four firefighters and a Dalmatian dog. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. NOTE: although all parts are present, there are four breaks in the very fine railing. Three of the small broken parts are present; a short one is missing. These are easily made from pulled sprue or cylindrical stock. Marlin first cut the molds in 1952 and issued the six original American Firefighters (Chemical and Ladder, Steamer, Hook and Ladder, Water Tower, Aerial Ladder and Hose Reel) in 1952. Revell signed a marketing agreement with Marlin in 1953. Five of the kit were released with the Revell name and marketing name 'Collectors Kits, Closter N.J.' Revell added the horse parts as they were not originally part of the Marlin issues. The kits made excellent display pieces, but they never caught the imagination of young men like jet aircraft did. The five molds were shipped to Brazil. After run for Kikoler (Revell Brazil's Distributor), they were shipped back to the USA but the molds were lost at sea. This issue is from when Revell still had the marketing agreement, as it says 'Trade Mark Copyright 1954 Marlin Toy Co. Inc' on the box top and 'Collector's Kits, Inc, Closter, N.J.' on the side.
