The basic design was first tested in the MXY6 motor glider with a 22 hp engine in 1943. The tests were considered a success, and design of the J7W1 begane in June of 1944. Various configurations were tried, and the prototype modeled here has the rear mounted 2000 hp engine, 6 blade prop, 20 degree sweep back to the wing, two vertical stabilizers and four nose mounted 30mm cannon. It flew two weeks before the end of WWII but never saw combat.

Sterling USCG Eagle - 11.25 inch long Solid Wood Ship with Cloth Sails and Metal Fittings, G9

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Sold   

Still factory sealed. In the late 1970s/early 1980s Sterling issued these simplified wood kits for beginners. They included a completely carved hull with very little sanding needed to complete. Also included are full size plans, printwood, fully shaped wooden parts, cast metal fittings, pre-cut blocks, hardwood dowels, instructions, standing and running rigging line, rigging diagrams and printed cloth sails. I remember building some of these - it was an ideal project for someone who had never built a solid wooden kit but wanted the experience. Sterling had quite a line at this point - the box side mentions almost 150 different kits to choose from! From this series the following are listed: G1 Spanish Galleon, G2 Frigate Constitution, G3 Schooner Bluenose, G4 HMS Bounty, G5 Golden Hind, G6 Pirate Brig, G7 Emma C Berry and G8 Charles W. Morgan.

Comet Piper Cub Struct-O-Speed - Coke Bottle Issue, K2-50

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Dated 1951. This is a semi-scale, highly prefabricated rubber powered free-flight balsa kit with a wingspan of 13.25 inches. This is a 3D kit (not a profile model) of all die-cut balsa and a beautiful fully finished one-piece wood wing with airfoil. Includes clear and template for windshield, a factory sealed envelope of small parts and illustrated and text instructions, flying tips and more. Complete and never started. 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.

Sterling Great Lakes Trainer - 36 inch Wingspan Flying Model, C13

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Superb kit from the 1960s or early 70s. Designed for control line flight with .19 to .35 engines. Features die-cut and inter-notched balsa and plywood parts, shaped and notched leading and trailing edges, hardwood motor mounts, formed wire landing gear, molded plastic cowling, hardware pack, silk-span covering, authentic decals, extensive full size plans and more. The kit has never been started. The smaller parts are still in factory sealed bags; the parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete and includes decals and instructions. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I personally considered Sterlings to be 'deluxe' kits.

Matchbox Dornier Do-18 Civil or Military G-1/V-2 - Luftwaffe Calais-based 3/KuFlGr 406 (1940) or 2/KuyFlGr 506 Kiel 1938 or Civil D-AANE 'Zyklon' Lufthansa South Atlantic Mail Service (1938), 1/72, PK-409

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Nicely detailed older kit with markings for the three aircraft listed above. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Lufthansa was a pioneer in trans-oceanic mail services and the Do-15 and Do-18 grew to fit this need. Given the German interests in South America, it was no surprise that they established one of the first airmail services between Europe and that continent. This kit will build one of those aircraft, the Lufthansa South Atlantic Mail Aircraft (1938) D-AANE 'Zyklon' or the military version. The Do-18 was an improved D0-15 'Wal' and set several records during it's long useful life.

Maircraft Taylorcraft - Solid Wood Model Airplane, 1/48, S-17

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

Sold   

Maircraft was originally founded in the early or mid 1930s by Gordon Christoph and went by the name Aircraft Model Company. The company produced a typical line of solid 'profile cut' kits that required the usual high talent levels for carving and finishing. A former Comet Model Airplane & Supply Co. salesman, Jack Mair, bought the company in the early 1940s and renamed it Maircraft. This company was one of the handful of solid kit producers who issued models in a consistent 1/48 scale during the 1930s and 1940s (others included Hawk and Dyna-Model). This lead to one of the most desirable and rare model kits ever produced in the USA - the wood/plastic 1/48 United DC-3 model issued immediately after World War 2. Other than the P-61 and a few other Maircraft offerings, most were simple kits that sold for the low price of about 35 cents and gave the owners many hours of pleasurable work. This kit features a full size plan with instructions steps, fuselage that is about 80% cut, profile cut parts, printwood and a small bag of details. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.
