Lindberg Ryan NYP - Spirit of St. Louis, 1/48, 520-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG-

Sold   

1957 issue with wonderful Ray Gaedke artwork showing Lindberg over Paris. Large 1/48 NYP kit that was nicely molded for that time. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Dating Lindberg kits is problematic to a near complete lack of release information; early catalogs normally do not have dates, and there are no dates on early boxes or instructions & decals. However, by records kept when the kits were purchased new, we know this kit was issued either in 1956 or more likely in 1957.

Monogram Speedee-Bilt Curtiss P-40F Warhawk Flying Scale Model Airplane, G15-100

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Second issue from 1957 in a two-piece hardbox. For the advanced Monogram collector. Completely pre-fabricated multi-media kit featuring pre-colored and die cut balsa wood, precarved balsa, finished Monofoil wing, plastic detail parts (such as cowl, three bladed prop and spinner, pilot bust, exhaust, wheels and more), clear vacuform canopy, sandpaper, tissue covering and rubber motor. Designed for rubber free flight or scale display. Never started and as new inside. Inventoried 100% complete with all wood and plastic parts, decals and instructions/plans. The small parts are still factory bag sealed. Before there were plastic models, there were wooden aircraft kits. These usually came in two types - solid and stick and tissue. The solid models were static and usually contained a few blocks of balsa and sometimes a detail part or two. These "Make Wood Look Like Plane" models required a very high level of skill in carving and finishing. The stick and tissue variety were slightly easier to build and provided the ultimate thrill - they could fly when complete with rubber power (and later with free-flight gas and eventually RC). They still required a great deal of skill, so manufacturers sought ways to make model building more accessible to everyone. One idea was pre-carving and/or prefabrication. This raised prices, naturally. Many manufacturers launched lines of 'easy' to build flying models but only Monogram succeeded in making an entire line at an affordable price that would actual fly. The original "Speedee-Bilt" kits were in one-piece two-color boxes. In the early 1950s, shortly before plastic kits were available, Monogram changed to the 'hardbox' with a lithographic slick glued to the top. Speedee-Bilt kits contained die cut and pre painted wooden parts, completely formed airfoil wings, carved wheels and numerous plastic details like cowling, pilot, missiles, prop and whatever was required. Assembly was by detailed full size plans and instructions. Monogram carried the Speedee-Bilt line for several years past it's prime and the advent of plastic kits, a testimony to the quality and popularity.
