KMK AP-35 Mabuchi Geared Motor and Battery Case for Free-Flight TK-1 or other Airplanes, AP-35

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

It is said that the Mattel Superstar (late 1971) was the first mass produced electric powered, free-flight, rechargeable airplane. This geared electric drive certainly predates the Superstar but does not use rechargeable batteries. The intended aircraft - TK-1 - is pictured on the cover and described in great detail (including all dimensions) on the instructions. This power unit has a clever method of controlling how long the motor stays on - similar to the Ideal wooden flying kits 'gear extension' method of the 30's and 40s. It contains fuse material that is lit when the aircraft is launched. The fuse burns and releases a rubber band that disconnects the battery power. I assume this kit is from the 1960s but it is not dated. High quality and made from very light-weight plastic and metal. The power unit and battery box are mint and never used; the hardware is still sealed in the factory clear bag. Fuse material is also included and mint, and there are two sheets of instructions - Japanese and English. The Japanese set has extensive drawings and information the aircraft. Box has some wear as shown and missing one of the side inner flaps, but the contents are mint.

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

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

Sold   

Late 1960s reissue of the original 1950s release.

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.

The actual transfers are free of damage. The box is only 'fair' and not collectible; the kit inside is fine and an ideal builder. 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 had the action features and included everything needed to complete the model.

Life-Like Civil War Blockade Runner (Cutter 'Lavinia') - (Ex-Pyro), 1/124, 09362

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good+

Sold   

Still factory sealed. Very early Life-Like issue after Pyro sold out all plastic model molds and remaining stock. Actually, this is a Pyro box with 'Life-Like' stickers neatly placed over the Pyro logo and part number on the top and all four sides. After the initial issue, Pyro re-marketed the Harriett Lane as the "Lavinia," which was what the Confederates renamed her when she was captured and made her a blockage runner. Very nicely molded full hull kit. Usually molded in white, black, light wood tan and green (hull) (cannot confirm, it is sealed). Includes full rigging diagrams. The Harriett Lane was built in 1858 and named for President Buchanan's niece. The cutter was 180 feet long with a 30 foot beam and displacement was 670 tons. Armament consisted of 3-9 inch Dahlgrens and 1-30 lb Parrot Rifle. She was built at a time when steam was not fool-proof, so she is rigged for full sails. Harriett Lane served as the Presidential Yacht, the fired the first shot of the Civil War. She chased down blockade runners until January 1, 1863 when she was attacked by five Confederate Gun Boats and boarded. She was captured and renamed the Lavinia and was used as a blockade runner. Near the end of the war she caught fire at sea, and put into Havana Harbor. Federal forces took her again and rebuilt her in 1869 as the bark 'Elliot Ritchie'. She was abandoned at sea in 1884.
