Berkeley Buccaneer 'B' Special - For R/C or Free Flight

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$190   

Early free flight gas model design. Wingspan measures 56 inches. Early gas flight was a true art form - the demands on the aircraft design were unique. First, the aircraft had to take off under power, climb rapidly and stay in the contest area. Secondly, when the motor shut down, the model had to glide like a glider and hopefully still stay in the contest area. These contradictions in aircraft performance lead to some amazing designs. One persistent issue was spins - this Buccaneer 'B' Special features slotted leading edges to prevent 'whip stalls', which was a very common problem at the time. It also has a tail design that "...arrests spins". Model features ready made landing gear, complete full size plans, plywood firewall, semi-finished wood blocks, rubber wheels, plastic windshield, silkspan covering and printed wooden parts. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Makes and idea conversion to electric and RC - these are light aircraft, so you simply climb to altitude, shut down the motor and glide. Berkeley is a very famous manufacturer of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.

Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Boeing Fighter (F4B-4) - Midget Craft 6 inch wingspan Solid Balsa Airplane Model - (F4B4)

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$38   

Very old 1932 issue from Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Company. Ideal was one of the first US model airplane producers, starting their business in 1911. During the early years of the Great Depression, Ideal switched to balsa wood and soon released a line of 'Six Inch Wingspread' solid scale models in a line called 'Ideal Midget-Craft'. Adds for this line can be seen in Model Airplane News and other major popular aircraft publications of the 1930s. The models included plans and the required wood and usually retailed for about 10 cents. This aircraft has been started, which in this case is good news. The fuselage from Ideal was simply wooden stock. The original builder has carved the fuselage very accurately and correctly to about 90% finished. No other work has been done and no other parts have been cut out of the printwood. The model is complete and would be easy to finish.
