Miniature Masterpieces Roman Racing Chariot, 1/48, K504-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

This kit was found in the stock room of a long-closed hobby shop and is in factory-new condition. Rare early 1950s original issue. Molded in white. Like all Miniature Masterpieces kits, this one is very finely engraved and molded with excellent detail. In addition to the chariot, it includes a driver, Gladiator, four horses, a display stand and decals. The model includes detailed instructions (rare for the early 1950s) and a wonderful (and long) history of this particular chariot. Never started. The parts are still factory sealed in the original 'krinkle' bag and includes decals and mint instructions. 'Miniature Masterpieces' was formed through an alliance of Lou Glasser (Revell) and Steve Adams (Adams Action Models) in 1953. Although having the appearance of an independent company, the firm was run by Revell down to the prototypes being made at the Revell plant. However, there was no evidence of the parent company on the surface. The State Coach of England was the first kit, issued in 1953. More kits of excellent quality followed. Revell completely took over the line in 1954, making the one-year original issues very rare.

Comet 1950s Balsa Wood Glider - 11.5 Inch Wingspan - Bagged

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed

Sold   

Still factory sealed. From the 1950s. This very attractive flying model has a fuselage and vertical stabilizer with blue designs and a wing and horizontal stab with red designs. It is from the famous Chicago based manufacture, Comet. Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying, gas, gliders 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 the 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.

North Pacific Sleek Streek Rubber Band Powered Flying Aircraft - Bagged, 250

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed

Sold   

Rare. Still factory sealed. The renown Sleek Streek was North Pacific's best rubber band balsa flyer, and arguably the best flyer of any of the readily available aircraft by Guillow's or other makes. The main reason was that Sleek Streak was not only well designed, but light. The Guillow's competition was simply too heavy, and the North Pacific Star Flyer (a bigger model) was a bit heavy also (for the power). The performance was so legendary for this category that Sleek Streeks were modified and regularly recorded flights of over one minute and much more. There is even a famous article about how to modify this aircraft for that performance! When I was growing up I didn't have the article (or even the skill if I did), so I would remove the landing gear and shave off a little here and there - even this provided flights that were memorable to this day.

Guillows SE-5 Scout - 18 inch Wingspan Rubber Powered Balsa Wood Kit, WW-5

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

From 1965. This is one of a very popular line of World War 1 flying aircraft "stick and tissue" kits with 18 inch wingspans. Features scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, light vacuform nose cowl, die cut balsa parts, covering tissue, rubber motor and full decals. Includes full size, detailed plans. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Guillow's founder, Paul K. Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.
