Midwest Super Jabberwock - 33 Inch Wingspan Class C Cabin Competition for Free Flight or R/C Conversion, 401

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$65   

Purchased new on April 9, 1966 at Hobby House on 5240 Warrensville, Maple Heights, Cleveland, Ohio. Includes the original receipt! Cabin style 1949 record holding aircraft designed by Wally Simmers. These aircraft were common in the 1930s when the sport of free-flight model airplanes reached it's zenith. It was not uncommon for these models to fly for 45 minutes or more on rubber power alone - many flew out of site, and it became common practice to write your name, address and phone number on the covering tissue. Quality kit includes printwood, strip wood, precarved prop, covering tissue and beautiful full size plans. Never started and inventoried complete.

Revell Lockheed ASW P-3A Orion, 1/115, H163-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$44   

Hardbox issue is copyright dated 1965. Purchased new on May 12, 1966 at S.S. Kresge Department Store in Cleveland, Ohio. The flaws in the Lockheed Electra airliner ensured that it had a short service life in commercial service. But the sound design was modified into one of the most successful and long-serving of all ASW aircraft - the Orion. Revell seized upon this opportunity to recoup some of the money sunk into the Electra molds. The molds were modified to make this kit, the 'A' version of the venerable patrol aircraft. Features optional position landing gear and loading door and movable wheels and props. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

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.
