Eagle P-51H Mustang - 29.5 Inch Wingspan Gas Control Line Aircraft, 1/16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$59   

NOTE: builder only- not collectible. Please read carefully. Very rare kit from the 1940s. This is a very sturdy control line model that features sheeted/planked fuselage and wing and solid tail feathers - no tissue covering is used. Includes on these items: beautifully drawn plans, quality balsa printwood, many balsa parts factory cut to shape, sheet wood, planking and spars, cloth hinge material, printed plywood and all required balsa blocks.

The Eagle Model Aircraft Company of Brooklyn, NY was one of over 2000 manufacturers during the 'Golden Age' of flying models in the 1930s/1940s. Eagle kits were fairly deluxe compared to their contemporaries. There was an extensive line of kits in all sizes.

Lindberg Nautilus Atomic Submarine, 1/300, 70884

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$18   

Still factory sealed. Crafthouse reissue, from original molds. The model is an interesting work of fact and fiction - it includes a deck gun and what looks like a Regulus II missile for the deck! The scale is about 1/300 and it measures about 12 inches long when assembled. This kit has a fascinating history. In the 1930s, Paul Lindberg was designing, building and flying stick and tissue aircraft like so many other men and boys of the time. His plans appear in Popular Aviation magazine and he made a good name for himself. When injection molding showed the way to increased kits sales in the late 1940s/early 1950s, he quickly teamed up with Mr. Olsen to create 'O-lin' models. Ray Gaedke was one the early artists for O-lin. In the early 1950s Paul Lindberg had control and had his name as the logo. The first logo is the one on this kit - 'Lindberg' in script with 'Products' arched across the top and 'Incorporated' arched across the bottom to create a broken circle around the script. Ray Gaedke continued his bold and colorful artwork for Lindbergs first Nautilus issue. The Nautilus appears to be the first sea vessel that Lindberg cut their own molds for - the Chris Craft Express Cruiser, PT Boat, LST and Fleet Submarine (Ex-Varney) were done by O-lin.

William H Low Co 1900s American La France Combination Hose Wagon - Wilo Line Fire Trucks, 1/24, CH110

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$85   

Very rare. Likely from the 1940s. William H Low Co., of Braintree Mass., issued the 'Wilo Line' which included a superb series of antique commercial firefighting equipment. The scale is given as 1/2" and the finished wagon is approximately 7.5 inches long (and over 14 inches long with the front hitch bar). The kits were very advanced for the time and shared many of the pre-fabrication methods of Hudson Miniatures. Wilo Line kits features "all parts in this kit cut to size and shape." Includes beautiful plastic injection molded spoke wheels, precut and machined large and small wooden parts, finished tanks, hose material, metal stock, a sealed bag of smaller parts including a great many more fully carved wood parts, brass chain, metal parts and full size plans with numerous drawings and detailed text instructions. There is even a painting guide. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed small-parts bags with the non-sealed parts inventoried complete including instructions/plans. The kits in this line include Amoskeag Steamer, Hose Reel, Hose Wagon, Chemical Engine and many others. In most cases they are the only kits in existence of these historic vehicles. Bill Low did design at least one 'non-fire truck' kit in his Will-O-Line - a Conestoga Wagon, advertised as being 1/24 scale, kit #B14 for $2.85 listed as "This is another Museum Piece by Bill Low." After seeing these fire truck kits, I do not doubt that.

How far back they go is unknown; they claim to have the 'Know How of 30 Years Experience' on the box side, but that could be interpreted many ways. From the box there was at least a Spad, SE-5, Fokker DVII, Niuport and a Sopwith Camel for rubber power as well as the 'Spacer A-B' & 'Spacer 1/2A' and the indoor Featherette. We know they also issued some ex-Suydam railroad kits as well.
