Vintage RC Planes at The Best Things


RC Model Plane Kits & Motors

Our vintage tool expert, Lee Richmond, is also an avid RC modeler, and has been for many years. Lee has been flying model planes ever since he can remember, and has been collecting RC kits ever since he could afford them. Now there is no room left and it is time to start selling some of that collection. What better place to list these RC kits and motors than right here on The Best Things website. A model plane kit is more than just a box of wood, it is box full of hope and dreams. Sweet Dreams!

A note from Lee: In the time that I have been involved with RC, there have been some huge changes. Some of them for the better, others, I am not so sure. There are two technological advances that I embrace wholeheartedly, the use of spread spectrum modulation technology, and the use of brushless electric motors with Lipo batteries. In this same time, I have seen a move away from craftsmanship and building, to buying ready made kits. Along with this, there has been a shift in the production of RC products from the US and Europe to low production cost Asian countries. Both of these changes break my heart. I thought that the RC hobby was about more than just flying, it was a whole package deal, that involved creating an airplane that you were proud of, and then flying it. Of course many of us still do that, but many others have missed out on this experience. On the bright side, laser technology and CAD software has opened the door for small companies, often a single person, to bring model airplane kits to market. In the old days, when kits were usually die cut, the tooling costs were typically prohibitive for small companies, and even for large companies, production runs had to be large to make the investment worthwhile. If you want spend quality time with a child, and at the same time teach them some skills that will help to prepare them for the high tech work world that awaits them, I can't think of a better thing to do than to build and fly a model plane with them.

Alfa Wildcat Canopy/Hatch

WP191034 Alfa Wildcat Canopy/Hatch This is the hatch from my Alfa Wildcat, which I destroyed. The hatch is in good usable condition. I hate to see it wasted, so it is free to anyone who needs it and is a nice person. You only need to pay the shipping, which our website will quote as $5.99 for US mail. G++ $0




Airtronics

WP2004128 Airtronics A six channel 72 Mhz AM receiver, channel 50. This is a wideband reciever from about 1985. I bought it new and used it for a few years. It hasn't been used since 1987, but it was working fine then. Free to the first person who spends $100 on this page and orders it. G++ $0





AAmco X-Ray AAmco X-Ray AAmco X-Ray

WP191045 AAmco X-Ray Another great Lou Andrews design, the X-Ray also uses box-lock construction like the famous H-Ray, but it is a larger, higher performance 4 channel model with a 56" wingspan and intended for .35 - .45 motors. The kit is undisturbed. The box has some old tape residue and some paint splatter on it so I rated it G++ $129



Andrews Models:  Trixter Andrews Models:  Trixter

WP180425 Andrews Models: Trixter I am guessing that this kit is 1940s or early 50s. The picture on the box shows an ignition motor. The box is also marked with an ink stamp, "Class-A, Baby, Class-B, Junior, Price: $3.75." The box has normall browning from age and the lid has a few creases, but really it is quite OK. The contents look complete, but not perfect. I see a chap out of one side piece and one sheet of die cut ribs is broken in half. No parts are broken on the sheet, it broke along a cut line. In short, this is not a pristine example but it is a nice example of a very hard to find kit. G++ $99


Bridi Warlord 25 Bridi Warlord 25

WP191043 Bridi Warlord 25 An original Bridi kit, not one of the later ones. The plan are a bit yellowed but the wood looks great and it should build well. I would call it undistrubed but the plans have been unfolded and rolled up instead. Fine $95




Bridi Aircraft Designs Inc:  Bre-Zee Bridi Aircraft Designs Inc:  Bre-Zee Bridi Aircraft Designs Inc:  Bre-Zee

WP18114 Bridi Aircraft Designs Inc: Bre-Zee An apparently untouched kit in a clean box. One of the corner tabs of the box has torn off and is in the box. The contents look untouched. This is a biplane with a 51 1/2" wingspan and calling for a .50 - .60 2 cycle glow motor. The wings bolt on. The instruction sheet has the Bridi name pasted over the Kraft name. These kits were originally marketed by Kraft. Fine $169



deBolt Model Eng. Co. DMECO All American Senior deBolt Model Eng. Co. DMECO All American Senior deBolt Model Eng. Co. DMECO All American Senior

WP180751 deBolt Model Eng. Co. DMECO All American Senior A 51 inch wingspan control line model designed for .29 - .49 motors. This was of course a famous plane of the 1950s. The contents look intact and are in nice condition.. There is one simple die cut peice that is missing from its sheet. The box has torn corners and staining on the top. The careboard isn't in bad condition and the box could be conserved for a collector or you could just build it. G+ $129


Decals

WP200259 Decals This is a cigar box full of old decals accumlated from a lifetime of model building. Not mine, but somebody who gave it to me. It is free to the first person who orders it and spends at least $100 on this page. G+ $0




Direct Connection Tsunami Direct Connection Tsunami Direct Connection Tsunami

WP191029 Direct Connection Tsunami A 58 1/2" wingspan RC model intended for .40 - .46 2 strokes, although clearly a good choice for electric. The contents are clean and undisturbed. The box shows light wear, but this is one to build not collect so who cares about the box anyway. Fine- $175




Flight Line Products:  Super Joy Stick Flight Line Products:  Super Joy Stick Flight Line Products:  Super Joy Stick

WP190149 Flight Line Products: Super Joy Stick A less common 61" wingspan sport/pattern plane in the style of kits from the 1970s, although a bit of newspaper that was used at the factory to stuff the box is dated 1984.. Undisturbed condition. Intended to be easy to build with a constant chord wing. Intended for .45 - .60 2 cycles or .60 - .90 4 strokes. The box shows minor shelf wear and a few bits of tape, one of which is on the label. Fine- $145




Gee Bee Products:  Tiger Moth Gee Bee Products:  Tiger Moth Gee Bee Products:  Tiger Moth

WP200230 Gee Bee Products: Tiger Moth A 45" wingspan kit that calls for a 25 - 35 motor. As scale models go, this is not a highly detailed kit, making it relatively light for its wing area, and a perfect choice for electricification. This one is in a clean box with clean contents. Fine $129




Home and Hobby Solutions:  Primus (Taurus) Home and Hobby Solutions:  Primus (Taurus) Home and Hobby Solutions:  Primus (Taurus)

WP18113 Home and Hobby Solutions: Primus (Taurus) This is a modern reproduction of the legendary Top Flite Taurus that was kitted by Jeff Petrowski. Jeff did simplify the original kit a bit, but the plane is dimensionally identical to the original Taurus. I bought this kit new from Jeff and I have never touched it. I still fly the Taurus that my father built when I was in the crib, so I am realizing that buying this was really overkill. It might as well go to somebody who is ready to build it. I did build the Quick Fli 3 that was also kitted by Jeff and I can vouch for the quality of the kit being superb. Fine $249


Micro Models:  The "1938" Mercury 1/2 Scale Micro Models:  The "1938" Mercury 1/2 Scale Micro Models:  The "1938" Mercury 1/2 Scale

WP181237 Micro Models: The "1938" Mercury 1/2 Scale This is a 1970s half scale kit of a famous design from 1938. This kit has a 36" wingspan. It is a free flight model for .020 - .049 motors, but clearly could be built today as an RC kit with an electric motor. The plans are missing. It is probably complete otherwise, but it HAS NO PLANS. The box is browning from age but has no marks on damage. G++ $38



Midwest Flea Fli +10 Midwest Flea Fli +10 Midwest Flea Fli +10

WP180214 Midwest Flea Fli +10 This plane was designed by Phil Kraft as a scaled down version of his legendary Kwik Fli 3. The original Flea Fli was half size, so the +10 refers to this one being 10% larger than the half size model. It has a 42" wingspan, making it an ideal small field pattern ship for vintage pattern flying or fun. I find it to be one of the most attractive models ever. This kit is undisturbed inside. The box is browning with age and has a band of tape residue through the label. There is alos some paint spattering on the box. The canopy is yellowed. Every one of them that I have see has been yellowed. Also, Midwest shipped them with a canopy that was being used on another model and doen't really match the photo. All of them as this way. This one is good enough to collect but the box is not so pristine that you wouldn't want to build it. G++ $129


SIG Kit SIGRC65  Four-Star 120 SIG Kit SIGRC65  Four-Star 120

WP191028 SIG Kit: SIGRC65 Four-Star 120 A new the box kit, still in the cellophane wrapping. This is an 81" wingspan kit that calls for a .90 - 1.20 two cyle or a 1.20 to 1.60 four cycle. Mint $185





Sterling Kit C-10:  Nieuport 28 Sterling Kit C-10:  Nieuport 28

WP200233 Sterling Kit C-10: Nieuport 28 A 33"wingspan kit that was originally designed as a CL model but I found reference to somebody having built one as RC and was flying it at the NEAT fair. The box for this kit is coming apart at the corners. If you want it as a collector's piece, you will need to rebuild the corners. The box is otherwise in decent condition. There is some very minor insect damage to the plans. The box if full of stuff and looks complete. It has a spun aluminum cowling. G++ $79


Old Decals

WP200411 Old Decals This is box for a Veco Commanche with some old decals in it. Must interesting to my mind are three Ringmaster Jr. decals. One of them is perfect, one has some paper stuck on it but is also probably perfect, and one his rolled up. There is also a nice Cris Craft decal. The box is free with any purchase from this page. G+ $0



Veco - Henry Engineering Company:  The Comanche Veco - Henry Engineering Company:  The Comanche

WP180748 Veco - Henry Engineering Company: The Comanche A 36" free flight kit from the 1950s and designed for .035 to .074 motors. Some of the ribs are removed from one of the sheets, but it looks to be an intact kit. The box is browned from age and has scattered stains on the lid. This isn't a common kit so I cut it some slack. G+ $59




Veco - Henry Engineering Company:  The Sioux Veco - Henry Engineering Company:  The Sioux

WP180749 Veco - Henry Engineering Company: The Sioux An apparently undisturbed in the box 36" free flight kit from the 1950s. The box is lightly browned from age and has some scattered staining. Rates a strong G+ $79

Aristo Craft (Pilot):  Robin Aristo Craft (Pilot):  Robin Aristo Craft (Pilot):  Robin

WP200232 Aristo Craft (Pilot): Robin This is a Pilot kit from the 1960s, or early 1970s, that was imported by Aristo Craft. The plane was designed by Y. Murata. The plans are marked Pilot, and the parts bundles are all labeled Pilot. Aristo Craft was the original importer for Pilot before they began to import directly. The plane is a 57 1/2" wingspan model that calls for a 50 - 60 and looks reminiscent of an Astro Hog. The quality of this kit is superb, as you would expect with any Pilot kit. I have never seen a high-end Japanese kit that wasn't great, and this one is no exception. The contents look undisturbed, including some very high quality hardware. A real gem for the collector. Fine $279


C.A.P. Kit 4 Republic P-47 Thunderbolt C.A.P. Kit 4 Republic P-47 Thunderbolt

WP180195 C.A.P. Kit 4 Republic P-47 Thunderbolt A 61" wingspan model originally intended for .61 - 80 2 cycle motors. C.A.P., or Complete A Pack, was a Scottish kit maker that began in the 1960s, with a rather novel concept of selling planes and wood packs to complete the kit. I don't think that this concept last long and they went to selling cut kits rather than just packs of wood. This is a nicely cut kit with a well made fiberglass cowl. It was my intention when I bought this kit to build it but it seems so rare that I hesitate to do so. It looks like it will make a marvelous model. Also in the box is a piece of cut aluminum from Top Flite for trimming the canopy. It certainly looks complete with two big plan sheets. This is an old school kit with lots of parts and shaping of balsa. I love it! G++ $199


Graupner Kit Nr. 4217:  HS 91 Clou Graupner Kit Nr. 4217:  HS 91 Clou Graupner Kit Nr. 4217:  HS 91 Clou

WP200231 Graupner Kit Nr. 4217: HS 91 Clou This is a less common Graupner sailplane kit from the late 1960s and early 1970s. It has a most interesting feature, that it comes with two sets of wings. The long set, for thermalling, is 2450mm (96.5"), and the short set for acrobatics is 1890mm (74.5"). The wings plug in with hollow tubes in the wings. I would modifiy these to use carbon fiber in place of steel rods and copper tubing. The box shows its age but the contents look good. Some of the hardware pack may be missing, as there was loose hardware in the box when I got it, and put what I could find in a bag. I would buy it with the understanding that some hardware is missing, which for a collector might be an issue, but as a builder I am assuming that you would want to use new hardware anyway. The kit is adaptable for a motor up front. A glow motor is shown but with the removable canopy, it would be trivial to make this one electric with a folding prop. Somebody has written the wingspans on the side of the box with a marker, and he got the conversion wrong for the longer wing. G++ $399


Graupner Meister Control Line handle

WP200488 Graupner Meister Control Line handle A 1950s CL handle that is as found and has clearly been used by cared for. It includes a roll of wire and the original instruction sheet. G+ $45





Graupner:  Cirrus Graupner:  Cirrus Graupner:  Cirrus

WP181266 Graupner: Cirrus This is one of the most famous sailplane kits of the 1970s, and the plane that I learned to fly on. My father built one in 1971 and taught me to fly standing in front of him and sharing the transmitter. This kit looks to be undisturbed in the box. This plane has a 3 meter wingspan! It can thermal when other planes are grounded. The ABS fuselage still has most of the original tissue paper around it. Some of the hardware is loose in the box and I suspect that a hardware bag has ruptured. The bags are more like cellophane and they do crack. It is missing the assembly manuals, however, I photographed all of the photos from the assembly manual of the other Cirrus kit that I had before I shipped it, and I will include a CD with those photos. Everything else seems to be there including the instrument panel, and the decals. The catalog, which Graupner always included, is dated 1970/71. The box is quite clean, with no tape marks and only light shelf wear. The canopy is a bit distorted but the way that it is glued to a framework it should be fine, especially if you warm it up a bit with a hair dryer. I also have the optional motor pylon kit. I will sell this to the person who buys this kit for an additional $100. I do not wish to sell it separately as long as I still have this kit. Fine- $1695


Graupner Nr. 107            Pylon Engine Mount for the Amigo Graupner Nr. 107            Pylon Engine Mount for the Amigo

WP180759 Graupner Nr. 107 Pylon Engine Mount for the Amigo This is a power pod for the original Graupner Amigo. Inside there is a Graupner catalog that is for 1962. The catalog is in beautiful condition. The box is relatively cleaned but it was crushed and some of the corners are blown out. There isn't much to the kit, but I think that one piece is missing, the firewall. According to the instructions, the firewall was made from beech wood. It isn't in the box and must have fallen out. It looks like the rest of it is there. G+ $69


OK Model Co. Pilot Kit No. 304 Crown 300 OK Model Co. Pilot Kit No. 304 Crown 300 OK Model Co. Pilot Kit No. 304 Crown 300

WP191044 OK Model Co. Pilot Kit No. 304 Crown 300 This is an early Pilot kit of a plane that was imported by Nelson Model Products but the intruction booklet is still in Japanese. It is very similar to a scalled down Taurus, except for the top of the fuselage. It could easily be build to look just like a Taurus. The wingspan is 1420mm (57 inches). The kit is very clean sith a crisp box and with all of the parts still bundled in the way that the Japanese do their kits. This kit is of superb quality, at least as good as a Top Flite kit of the period. This is the only example of this rare kit that I have seen. Fine $295


Performance Kits Sun Bird Performance Kits Sun Bird Performance Kits Sun Bird

WP130668 Performance Kits Sun Bird I have never seen another example of this kit. My father received it as a gift in 1979 when he was in the hospital. I don't think that it was new then. It builds a 51" stunt biplane. The kit is a classic old school British kit in the tradition of Veron. The labels are some kind of plastic material that has wrinkled. The box has one tear in the side that runs half way up the side. The contents are wonderful and include more accessories than most kits, including a fuel tank, fabric covering, and big rubber wheels that are still like new. The plans have been opened and put back, but the kit has never been removed from the box. I think that this is a real gem. G+ $595


WP20075 RCM&E Magazine: Complete Year 1992 This is a compete run of 12 magazines of one of the great RC publications of all time, RCM&E, which went bust not that long ago. The cover price in 1992 was 1.60 Pounds Sterling. Any issue that came with full size plans still has them. Fine $29

WP20076 WP19042 RCM&E Magazine: Complete Year 1998 This is a compete run of 13 (There was a bonus issue this year) magazines of one of the great RC publications of all time, RCM&E, which went bust not that long ago. The cover price in 1998 was 2.40 Pounds Sterling. Any issue that came with full size plans still has them. Fine $29




WP20073 RCM&E Magazine: Complete Year 2004 This is a compete run of 12 magazines of one of the great RC publications of all time, RCM&E, which went bust not that long ago. The cover price in 2004 was 3.10 Pounds Sterling. Any issue that came with full size plans still has them. Fine $29

Every issue has a complete set of full sized plans in the center, and the plans have never been taken out of any of these. The cover price in 2009 was $9.95. So, I am selling them for 75% off of the cover price! Fine $29



Royal Products

WP200243 Royal Products A new in the unopened package Royal cockpit interior for the Junior size Zero. Fine $39






Veron:  TIger Moth Veron:  TIger Moth Veron:  TIger Moth

WP181079 Veron: Tiger Moth A very clean and undisturbed kit of the Veron Tiger Moth. This is a later kit when Solarbo owned Veron. I am not sure when that transition took place. The plane has a 50" wingspan and is designed for .20 - 40 motors, although I would build it with a modest electric motor to maintain a classic scale feel. A .40 power motor would be ridiculous in this plane. The box has minor tape stains on each side, and an auction lot was written on one side. Fine $199


Veron Concord Veron Concord Veron Concord

WP130666 Veron Concord This was one of the great designs of its time, and was demonstrated around the world in a world tour. It is of the period of the great Taurus, and has some resemblance to that great plane. My father bought this kit new in London in the early 1960s, and it still has the Pan Am luggage tag on the box from his bringing it back. As a child I love to look at it and dream of one day building it. Later, when I was old enough to build it, I couldn't bear the thought of doing so, its having remained untouched for so long. I still enjoy just gazing at the box. I know that I priced this one a bit high, but it has become a very scarce kit, and it is an imporant kit for a number reaons. And finally, I will hate to see it go! The plans are yellowed with age. The kit has never been removed from the box, and is complete down to the spinner, and original wheels, which suprisingly are still supple. I have over the years unfolded the plans and dreamed over them, but that is it. This is a magnificent old school kit, with lots of thick pieces of milled balsa, including the top of the fuselage and the wing leading edges. The box has some tape on it where it was taped to carry it back from London. One end of the box now has torn corners. The label is wonderful, priceless really. I hope that somebody who will love this kit as much as I have buys it. G++ $595


Veron Deltaceptor Veron Deltaceptor

WP150660 Veron Deltaceptor This must be one of the first ducted fan kits. It is a free flight delta wing ducted fan design. I can't imagine a less practical concept. Starting the motor must have required superpowers. I am tempted to copy this kit and build it as an electric RC plane. I think that it would be great for that. The contents of the kit are very clean, including the plans and an instructions sheet. It also has a Veron type B impellor in the box that may have been an optional accessory, I don' t know. The impellor includes an instruction sheet, in German. The decals are old and yellowed. The outside of the box shows normal wear, but then an idiot put tape accross the middle and then another idiot put tape over the damage. The clear tape should be easy to remove with a hair dryer but the damage below it will still be there. I don't see a date anywhere, but I am thinking late 1950s. I am sure that an expert out there can educate me. Fine $199


Yushu Model Airplane Silk

WP131269 Yushu Model Airplane Silk This is 6 sealed packages of silk. 4 are red and one is dark blue. They are all marked "Yushu Brand, Model Airplane Silk, an International Product, Made in Japan" The packages are sealed and I don' t know how much silk each contains. I think that these are from the early 1960s. New $100

ME200478 McCoy .098 A nice as found example. It needs cleaning and doesn't turn over, as to be expected. It hasn't been touched since at least 1966. The flexible extension of the needle valve is gone. Free to the first person who orders it and spends at least $200 on this page.

Super Tiger - .51 RC Super Tiger - .51 RC

ME130670 Super Tiger - .51 RC This is an early production Super Tigre .51 that was purchased in the early 1960s, and never used. I bought it along with an unbuilt Top-Flite Orion. It has the original price of 24.98 written on the box. It has "chromed" stamped on the box, and stamped into the side of the right motor mount. It has two rings on the piston and a most unusual carbuerator arrangement, whereby the RC linkage moves the exhaust port, which is linked to the throttle. The paperwork in the box indicats tthat this is one of the earliest of this type of motor. It included a letter from the importer, "World Engines", with a pre-zip code address, and two sets of instructions, one English, and one Italian. A close examination of this motor shows me that it has never been moutned. Also in the box is a prop wrench that I assume came with it and a small slp talking about installing the carbuerator. Fine $129

Torpedo Special  (probably a 30) Torpedo Special  (probably a 30)

ME130675 Torpedo Special (probably a 30) A beautifully cleaned motor that I acquired from the estate of the original owner, an avid kit & motor collector who started collecting in the 1930s. The piece that rotates to set the timing is clearly a purpose made replacement, but is only a place holder; it is not functional. The displacement is not marked on the motor but it looks to be a 30 size to me. I would rate it fine but for because fo the replaced piece I rated it G++ $145


Veco 29 Veco 29 Veco 29

ME180764 Veco 29 One of the all time classics, a Veco 29 stunt motor. This motor is as found and untouched since the 1960s. It is a bit dirty and gummed up, but should clean up nicely. The only problem that I see is that the flexible end of the needle valve is broken off and the end has been slotted to use a screwdriver. The serial number is B5376. If anyone knows that date that corresponds to, please let me know. This motor also has the original instruction sheet with it. Should clean to G++ $36


Webra 2.5 Diesel Motor Webra 2.5 Diesel Motor Webra 2.5 Diesel Motor Webra 2.5 Diesel Motor

ME200925 Webra 2.5 Diesel Motor I am not an expert on early Webra motors, but my understanding is that this motor is from the early 1950s and was only made for a short time with this mounting configuration. The serial number is 20448. It came from an estate of a hobbyist who died around 1970. It has been in his son's attic ever since. The T handle for adjusting the compression has been crudely soldered. This could easily be removed. The motor is absoutely untouched but should clean up beautifully. G++ $145
