Lindberg Chesapeake Bay Skipjack Oyster Boat - (ex Pyro 'Carrie Price'), 1/60, 70850

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+


From 1989. Beautiful sloop model from ex-Pyro molds which were originally cut in the early 1960s. Measures 12 inches long when assembled and an excellent kit for that time.

Never started. Factory sealed parts bag with instructions. The Skipjack 'Carrie Price' is an exact replica of a typical small sailing vessel used along the Chesapeake Bay area to dredge for oysters. The center keel stabilizer could be pulled up for working in very shallow water. Until 1942 sail was the only power permitted for oyster dredging; after 1942 the state passed a law allowing power boats to be used. This lead to many skipjacks being converted to power and having the main mast cut down. Although its days are past, many yachtsmen restore and sail this beautiful small craft today.

The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. 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.

Berkeley is a very famous manufacturer of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.

Unicraft Moskalev Sigma, 1/72

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM


Rare and out of production. Still factory tape sealed. Nicely detailed, limited-run resin kit. A.S.Moskalev was an outstanding Soviet aircraft designer who created a lot of unconventional projects, many of which were built and successfully flew. The SAM-7 was an extraordinary tailless all-metal aircraft featuring the delta wing with two fins on its edges and a short fuselage with the separate pilot and gunner cockpits. The plane was powered with the M-34 engine (750 hp) cooled by the vaporing radiator in flight. The retractable conventional radiator housed behind the pilot's cockpit was used on low speeds and on take-off. The wooden propeller had four blades. Airplane's armament consisted of four 7.62mm ShKAS machine guns : two above the engine and two flexible - in the gunner's cockpit. The SAM-7 was built in 1934-1935 and was initially tested on the aircraft plant airfield. Despite good characteristics the whole program was canceled by the VVS in favor of the same delta wing tailless bomber K-12 which entered small series production on the same plant a year later.
