StromBecker American Airlines Convair Flagship, C-38

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Near Mint

$149   

From the 1950s and with a 10 inch wingspan. This kit and box are in rare, investment-grade 'near mint' condition. Highly prefabricated kit made from solid western pine - not balsa wood. Makes a very impressive display model when built. Includes precut and shaped fuselage, wings, elevators, rudder and nacelles, a bag of detail parts including propellers, wheels, etc, wood filler and glue, sandpaper, detailed instructions and drawings with aircraft history and a large, colorful American Airlines decal sheet. Never started. 100% complete with all parts and plans. Before plastic kits were introduced, Strombecker was famous as the premier hardwood preshaped model manufacturer. In the 1940s and 1950s, Strombecker kits were flawlessly engineered but not inexpensive. All wooden parts are hardwood and are precarved to shape - usually only a quick sanding would finish them.

$125   

1954 issue. Molded in the correct gloss silver and clear, with the 'Revelving' Swivel Base. The kit has never been started and is inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. The small parts are still in the factory bag but it is opened. The decals and instructions are in 'excellent++' condition. The box has only very light wear as shown. This is the third release. The first issue was in the simple one-piece box and Revell quickly converted to this two-piece box as it was much more durable and a full-color lithographed 'slick' could be used. For the second issue, Revell added rivet and raised panel line detail as well as landing gear, and went to this box and H210-79 kit number. The famous 'Globe' clear stand was added, but the 2nd issue has the rare one piece stand arm and the instructions reflecting that. The 3rd issue (this kit) is identical to the 2nd issue except that the 'Globe' stand was changed to the sturdy 3 piece arm version.
