Selling In The Pavilion - Variety Trains From A Private Collection.

CATALOG (Double Column).

Selling In The Blue Room - The Duane Cowan Airplane Kit & Engine Collection. This collection was amassed over a 50-year period. It includes more than 300 engines & more than 200 kits. There are about 1,000 Props & approximately 1 dozen boxes of balsa wood.

Some notes from the consignor:

The engine collection is diverse, including engines from the early 1960s, both radio control & control line. Some can be used for both. Each engine has been carefully inspected and lubed with air tool oil. Some ball bearing engines were test run and may have residual castor oil in the bearings, which can be rinsed out.

Some points of interest:

• All Super Tigre engines were manufactured in Italy, not China
• Collection includes new & older engines; most excellent condition, a few in good to very good condition
• Some of the engines are rare or difficult to find

Many of the kits have not been available for 30 to 40 years. The variety of kits is too extensive to list, but the oldest kit is Eureka, manufactured in Japan during the 40s or 50s. The kit boxes are in good condition, some like new in original wrappings. A few, because of age, show some shelf wear.

Some of the balsa wood is from earlier years, when the quality of balsa wood was much better.

The propellers are new and from TopFlite, RevUp and other makers. The TopFlite props are the older, wide-blade props. There are some Bob Robert’s props for the Drone Diesel from the 1950s.
