Comet Sparky - 32 Inch Wingspan Wakefield-Style Flying Aircraft, 3408-150

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair


Late 1960s reissue of the original 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. There is no assembly and all parts are uncut. Inventoried complete with all parts and plans present. Please NOTE the box is only fair and not collectible; ideal builder kit. 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.

Lindberg Concord Stagecoach (Wells Fargo Overland ) - with Figures and Horses, 1/16, 70351

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint


Still factory sealed. Out of production. Very large (1/16 scale)classic kit measures 2.5 feet long when assembled. Very highly detailed model can build to a wonderful mantle piece. Includes 0ver 250 parts - coach with full interior, full suspension, luggage rack, horses, harnesses, whip, metal chain, luggage trunks and 6 figures. The figures are beautifully molded and detailed. NOTE: Lindberg packed this in a huge box - much larger than needed, so shipping can be expensive depending on your location. If you want the parts removed from this box and repacked, it would cost much less to ship. For overseas orders this is absolutely necessary. For USA customers the same is true and also the USPS shipping calculator has proven to be unreliable with big box sizes (near balloon rate) so please ask and as always- we will be happy to double check.

Aurora Convair 880 SuperJet TWA, 1/103, 384-250

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint


Still factory sealed. Dated 1961. The Convair 880 and it's near sister 990 were very high performance airliners. Unfortunately they did not find favor with commercial operators. Only 65 880s were produced from 1959 to 1962. The aircraft was designed to be smaller and faster than the DC-8 and 707 - this market did not develop, however, and if it did it could have been served with less expensive designs. The 990 was a larger and faster (mach .91) airliner, but it failed to meet it's range criteria for east to west crossings of the USA. As a result, only 37 were made. Interestingly enough, several 990s continued to be operated by private owners and NASA operated two 990s for decades after the last 990 was phased out of commercial service.
