Sterling Curtiss P-6E Hawk - 16 inch Wingspan Flying Model Aircraft that Drops Bombs in Flight, A10

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$75   

16 inch wingspan kit for free flight or control line. Includes innovative system for automatically dropping bombs in flight. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they featured color decals, high-grade die cut balsa, vacuform plastic detail parts, plastic wheels (if required), finished wire landing gear, rubber motor and plastic prop, full size plans with instruction details and instructions for conversion to control line. The kit has never been started. Inventoried complete including decals and instructions.

Never started and inventoried complete with all parts.

Airfix Blackburn NA-39 Buccaneer - Craftmaster Issue, 1/72, 4-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$24   

One of the more dramatic Craftmaster boxes. A British carrier launches heavily battle-damaged Buccaneers with enemy ships within visual range. Other Buccaneers are taking heavy and accurate fire from the enemy, while one ship is engulfed in flames. Propeller driven aircraft fall burning from the sky. Kit features opening unique rotating bomb bay, folding wings and working arresting hook. The kit has never been assembled but has minor painting. NOTE: the inside walls of the cockpit have been painted. Paint quality is good. It could be painted over or stripped in DOT3 brake fluid or other safe stripper. There is no other painting. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The Buccaneer was the world's first purpose designed low level 'below the radar' bomber. Low level strike aircraft have a shorter airframe life limit due to the stresses of low level flying, so the Buccaneer was designed to be very strong and even had many sub-assemblies milled from solid metal.

Comet Phantom Fury - 32 Inch Wingspan Flying Airplane - Plans by Robert Reder co-founder of Monogram, E24

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

Stick-and-tissue kit from the 1930s. When Bob Reder was young, he was hooked on flying models. Upon graduation in 1935, he went to work for Comet. He drew this version of the Phantom Fury plans and put his name at the bottom. This is a very nice kit for that time, featuring a large balsa printwood sheet, a pre-carved prop that only needs finish sanding, nose block, factory cut strip wood in all required sizes, other balsa stock as required for gear struts, etc., fully carved wooden wheels, red and orange covering tissue, clear window material, metal prop shaft and full size plans. The kit has never been started and is 100% complete. NOTE: The box looks great but is graded 'fair' because it is missing all of the end flaps.

Designed to be very easy to construct and fly. Features tissue-covered high-lift wing and tail surfaces, stick fuselage, fully formed wheels, prop, rubber motor and detailed plans. 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.
