Miniature Masterpieces Covered Wagon - with Two Longhorn Oxen / Horse and Pioneer Family, 1/48, K505-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$85   

Rare 1954 original issue. Box color and gloss are as new with four solid corners and no price tags. Flaws include very light edge and corner wear, light scuffing and a tiny tape pull (1/4 by 1/4 inch) on one long side from the factory tape. Molded in dark wood brown. Like all Miniature Masterpieces kits, this one is very finely engraved and molded with excellent detail. The model includes detailed instructions, a rarity in the early 1950s. The kit has never been started. Inside it is like new with all parts still sealed in the factory 'krinkle' bag. 'Miniature Masterpieces' was formed through an alliance of Lou Glasser (Revell) and Steve Adams (Adams Action Models) in 1953. Although having the appearance of an independent company, the firm was run by Revell down to the prototypes being made at the Revell plant. However, there was no evidence of the parent company on the surface. The State Coach of England was the first kit, issued in 1953. More kits of excellent quality followed. Revell completely took over the line in 1954, making the one-year original issues very rare.

Comet Sparky - 32 Inch Wingspan Wakefield-Style Flying Aircraft, 3408-149

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

$64   

Still factory sealed. From the 1960s/early 1970s. Rare large flying model. It is a reissue of the 1950s release. Features high quality print and strip balsa wood, a beautiful, large carved balsa prop that needs final sanding to shape, fully formed wheels, thrust button, metal and wood stock as required, tissue, and excellent full size plans with instructions. 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. Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. 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). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.
