Sterling Stearman PT-17 Kaydet - Control Line Wooden 32 Inch Wingspan Flying Model, C12

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$145   

Big 32.25 inch wingspan kit for control line or RC conversion - .19 to .35 size engines. Features all die-cut and inter-notched plywood and balsa parts, pre-shaped and notched leading and trailing edges, maple motor mounts, wire landing gear, hardware pack, covering material, decals and plans with instructions. Never started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed bag; the parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete an includes all paperwork. 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 always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they were very complete and well made.

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$82   

Rare, arge (17 inch LOA) model of this 1930s craft.

The plans certainly look like the YG-1B Army Craft; the YG-1B was modified with a constant speed rotor and became the YG-1C; it was then redesignated XR-2. This craft is also known as a KD-1; the model will built any of the three.

Maircraft TWO Fokker D-VII And Fokker D-VIII And Sopwith Camel - Solid Wood Model Airplanes, 1/48, S20

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair to Good

$34

One is factory new; the other is just the fuselage, wings, tails and propeller. The Camel and DVIII are complete and never started. 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.

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).

Marvel Republic Guardsman - Severskey 2PA / USAAF bAT-12 / Japan ASV-1 / Swedish B-6 - Combat Planes of America, 1/64

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$24   

Rare kit from 1942. This is a scale solid wood kit with an 11 inch wingspan. The scale is given on the plans as 5/16" = 1'. It features balsa wood blocks and sheet as required, very thick and heavy printed cardstock parts, color insignia and full size plans with templates & construction notes. This is a typical kit from this era that requires serious carving and shaping skills. Complete and never started. NOTE: the plans have some bug damage. The plans are still usable but the damage is significant. The Seversky 2PA is the two-seat version of the single seat P-35 model manufactured by the Seversky Company, which was later reformed under the name Republic Aviation. In 1935-39, Seversky sold 20 of the aircraft to Japan. The Japanese Navy designated as these as ASV-1 s. Later, Sweden ordered 52 which carried the designation B6.In June 1940, the United States government ordered an embargo on the sale of U.S. made aircraft to all foreign countries except Britain. Sweden had received two aircraft of their order, and the remaining 50 were sold to the United States Army Air Corps and designated the AT-12 Guardsman. It is unlikely that any AT-12 served as an advanced trainer, however, as most were allocated during World War 2 to USAAC base commanding officers as fast transport aircraft. Marvel was a popular manufacture with a large line of army vehicles, tanks of all nations, aircraft and more.
