Monogram Speedee-Bilt Boeing PT-13 Kaydet Trainer, G5-100

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$145   

Rare kit from 1957. The PT-17 was the first trainer standardized for the Air Force and Navy. This is a highly prefabricated, rubber-powered wooden scale flying model kit. It features beautiful, completely finished Monofoil upper and lower wings, die-cut fuselage sides and formers that are factory painted yellow, precarved wooden parts, fully finished wheels, die-cut clear windscreens, plastic engine, prop and pilot bust, fully formed wire landing gear, rubber motor, sandpaper, tissue, decals and excellent instructions. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please NOTE that a part of the decals is stuck to the Monogram catalog. Before there were plastic models, there were wooden aircraft kits. These usually came in two types - solid and stick and tissue. The solid models were static and usually contained a few blocks of balsa and sometimes a detail part or two. These "Make Wood Look Like Plane" models required a very high level of skill in carving and finishing. The stick and tissue variety were slightly easier to build and provided the ultimate thrill - they could fly when complete with rubber power (and later with free-flight gas and eventually RC). They still required a great deal of skill, so manufactures sought ways to make model building more accessible to everyone. One idea was pre-carving and/or prefabrication. This raised prices, naturally. Many manufactures launched lines of 'easy' to build flying models but only Monogram succeeded in making an entire line at an affordable price that would actual fly. The original "Speedee-Bilt" kits were in one-piece two-color boxes. In the early 1950s, shortly before plastic kits were available, Monogram changed to the 'hardbox' with a lithographic slick glued to the top as this kit. Speedee-Bilt kits contained die cut and pre painted wooden parts, completely formed airfoil wings, carved wheels and numerous plastic details like cowlings, pilot, missiles, prop and more. Assembly was by detailed full size plans.

Monogram Lockheed P-38L / P-38M / P-38J / F-5 Lightning - Four Star Issue, 1/48, PA97-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

$74   

Very rare. This kit is still factory sealed on the inside as a special display for experiment. On bigger kits (B-52, Phantom Huey and Mustang, etc), Monogram would seal the parts in clear with the lower box, then leave the box top unsealed so that potential buyers could see the kit 'insides' before purchasing. I did not know they did it with smaller kits and this is the first one I have seen. It is not a reseal as the cello is of the old heavy type and brittle. Please note the Uncle Bill's Hobby Shop (Cleveland, Ohio) price tag on the box top and the purchase date of 9-6-1966. First issue hardbox copyright dated 1964. Very highly detailed and well molded kit. Builds any of four versions including 2-Seat Night Fighter, day fighter, 'Droop Snoot' with bomber nose and F5 photo recon version.
