Monogram Grumman Gulfhawk (F3F) Gulf Oil - White Box Issue, 1/32, 6850

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$29   

NOTE: builder kit only, please read very carefully. Dated 1973 and likely the fourth or fifth issue. This kit has small Mattel logos on the long sides only. This airplane is a civil F3F that was flown for Gulf Oil by the famous stunt pilot Al Williams. The kit has several action features: When you pull the prop outward and rotate it CCW, the landing gear retracts. Pull it outward and rotate it CW, and the gear extends. Push the prop in, and it freewheels as normal. Kit features a movable control surfaces, highly detailed cockpit, full decals including striping, sliding canopy, very colorful decals including wing stripes and instructions for rigging. NOTE: this kit has very neatly built assemblies and minor painting. The following has been done to the designated quality: one prop balancer is glued on, the 'N' struts and center struts are glued to the assembled top wing with perfect alignment (professional). The instrument panel and rudder pedals are glued to the cowl (excellent++), the gear has been glued to the main drive shaft for the landing gear and prop (pro), the landing gear are assembled and work perfectly (excellent++ to professional), the engine has been glued to the firewall (pro), the two small side instrument panels are glued inside the cockpit (excellent++) and the struts and wheels have been painted (excellent+).

Saunders Swadar 1914 Mercedes Race Car - Classics of Road and Track, 1/16, 1914-K

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$95   

Very rare and from the early/mid 1950s. Although simple by modern standards, this model was a big increase in quality from the toy-like Highway Pioneers...not to mention the big 1/16 scale (HP were 1/32). Features an engine, removable hood, rolling chassis and interior, but all with a low part count. Very nicely molded in gloss white and black. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes 'excellent' instructions and even the remains of the factory 'krinkle' bag that the parts were formerly sealed in. Sanders Swadar was a toy company out of Aurora, Illinois and a division of Saunders Tool & Die Company in the same town. Saunders decided to go into the plastic model business some time in the early 1950s, no doubt inspired by the Highway Pioneers and the rush to market that followed that. Other 'construction kit' listed on the instructions at the time of this release are Bell Helicopter with Pontoons, Bell Helicopter with Landing Skids, USN Tandem Rotor Helicopter, USN Aircraft Carrier with Catapult and Planes (CV38), Fairchild Pack Plane with Tank and Jeep and 1/16 1912 Mercer Race Car. Please note that other than the Mercer, the other models have a toy-like quality to them...so this is a very early release as the other true-scale Swadar models had yet to be released. Actually, very few kits appeared with the full 'Saunders Swader' name - most simply said 'Swadar.' In total there was a small but significant line of aircraft and a few large (1/16) scale car kits as well as a famous tractor model. Most or all of these kits were available until the mid 1950s, when Swadar discontinued production. At some point Lindberg acquired these molds although it does not appear to have been in the 1950s or even the 1960s. The earliest Lindberg releases appear to be 1977 - so until older issues show up, we can speculate on where the molds were until then and how Lindberg obtained them!

Wright-Dayton Co Wright Aerial Torpedo Flying Balsawood Glider

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$42   

Rare. Exact date is unknown, but is from the late 1930s or early 1940s. Wright-Dayton was located at Front & Second Strs, Dayton Ohio. The instructions state that this flying glider was 'designed by the chief engineer of the Wright-Dayton Company, who helped built and fly the original Wright Airplane." No small claim and not an idle one! Upon further investigation, the un-named chief engineer is James M.H. Jacobs. He filed the patent for this glider in 1937; he is also named in patents with Wilber Wright. Sure enough, he was an engineer who certainly worked closely with the Wright Brothers. This is a rubber-band launched folding wing type model - when it slowed down near peak altitude, the wings would deploy and results in a long glide. It comes with a balsa body, factory attached red, white and blue tail feathers, metal nose weight (preinstalled) that has a launch hook, two balsa wings with excellent red printed design that says 'Wright Aerial Torpedo', factory applied tin folding tabs on the inboard wings, a rubber band/launch hardwood stick, full instructions and even the rubber bad (no good, but present, stuck to instructions). Complete and never used.

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$75   

Very rare. From the very early 1940s. Wright-Dayton was located at Front & Second Strs, Dayton Ohio. The instructions state that this flying glider was 'designed by the chief engineer of the Wright-Dayton Company, who helped built and fly the original Wright Airplane."

He filed the patent for this glider in 1937; he is also named in patents with Wilber Wright. Sure enough, he was an engineer who certainly worked closely with the Wright Brothers. This is a very nice, true-scale, deluxe (for the time) solid wood model of bread-and butter construction. Features 9 excellent, factory cut hardwood profiles for the bread-and-butter fuselage with dowel pin alignment, templates (on the instructions) for final sanding, very nice profile cut hardwood wings, horizontal and vertical stabilizers, die cut hardwood display stand, a factory sealed envelope of small parts, an excellent color insignia sheets with starts, wing walks, retracted wheels and gear doors, oil coolers, canopy with frames, tail wheel, side windows and stand name plate and excellent full size instructions with detail assembly drawings and excellent step-by-step instructions.
