Description* :
This auction is for a vintage control line flying model airplane. Thanks to information provided by a fellow bayer i now know that the plane is a berkeley model plane known as the "key". It was designed by keith storey and was a kit model used for team racing. Mr. Storey was inducted into the model aviation hall of fame in 1998. If i had to guess at a scale i would say that it is probably about 1:12 scale. I found a photo of an original kit box on the internet and have posted it here. The plane is in the style of a classic racing airplane and has a wing span of approximately 29 inches and is about 24 inches long. The wings and fuselage are made of wood and not doped tissue. It has a finished interior complete with seat, gauges, and control stick.The engine feels like it has good compression when the prop is rotated by hand. I have not tried to start it though. I can't read the engine brand. It has a top-flite 11-6 wooden prop. It is in good condition with only a few signs of wear. It will be shipped completely assembled as shown. This is a very impressive model, so don't miss out. I am open to reasonable offers. Ask any questions before bidding. Shipping: the winning bidder will pay $ 34.99 for shipping to the lower 48 continental u.S. States in addition to the winning bid (alaska and hawaii extra). I sometimes use clean recycled boxes and packing material (including plastic shopping bags, which i have found to be excellent for packaging) in order to reduce the load on planet earth. Payment: please don't bid if you don't plan to pay. Payment must be received within two days from close of auction. Foreign sales: no international shipping.
