Silver Streak 40' Wood Sheathed Refrigerator Car - Swift Refrigerator Line - HO Craftsman Kit With Sprung Metal Trucks, 1/87, S412-295

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$48   

Classic kit from the Craftsman Era of HO kits. Very detailed and well made kit. Silver Streak was one of a number of manufacturers that created very realistic wood and metal kits during the 1940s and 1950s. This is, in my opinion, an exceptional kit. Includes pre-scribed and cut and factory painted and lettered hardwood sides decorated with Swift in red and white, and all other required markings, fully milled and cut hardwood roof and floor, fully cut and prescribed bristol board car ends , metal door hardware and cast brake parts including levers, cast coupler pockets, underside girders, bolsters, ice hatches, brake wheel, metal ladders, grab irons, roof ribs and brake linkage, scale chain and more. This kit has complete underside detail and instructions to help with this tricky but rewarding task. Includes full size plans and instructions. The kit has never been started. All parts are still internal factory sealed bags.

$59   

1950s issue of one of the more famous free-flight models of the 1930s. 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. Kit features traditional wood/tissue construction, detailed full size plans/building instructions, formed wooden wheels & thrust button, tissue and propeller. Never started and complete with all parts and 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.
