This list is subject to change on availability. All proceeds benefit the Aviation Museum of Kentucky. All kits are "as is". MMCL is not responsible for contents or conditions of any kits listed here. Please address all inquiries to Dennis Sparks.

From time to time, MMCL partners with the Aviation Museum of Kentucky to host events and share opportunities to get museum pieces being sold to support the AMK. Recently one of our club member, Dennis Sparks, visited the museum and came across a large donation of built models and rare kits. If you would like to support the Museum and get a hold of some of these finds, please contact Dennis directly at dennis.sparks@uky.edu

In Dennis' own words:


It’s not uncommon for the aviation museum to be given a collection of built models and/or unbuilt kits.  The most typical scenario is that the modeler has died and his descendants have donated them rather than simply tossing them.  As you might imagine, storage space is a problem at the museum, and it’s fairly rare for any of the donated finished models to be both well-made and also fill a niche that might warrant them going on display in the museum. If you’ll recall, I helped the museum sell some of these unwanted kits and models at our last contest.

I visited the museum yesterday and was told that they had recently accepted another small batch.  I was asked to evaluate them and since I had my camera with me, I made a few quick photos of some of the more vintage ones.  At a guess, I’d say that the modeler was building kits from the mid-1950s until about 1980.  Only a few of them were reasonably well done, but certainly the bulk of the finished models were intact and so could be rebuilt by anyone who was sufficiently interested in them.  There’s a lot more built models that, while they could be restored probably aren’t worth the effort.

Models_01 includes three 1/200th scale DC-9s, and odd box-scale Tupolev and what I believe to be the relatively rare Hawk Convair 240.
Models_02 is a collection of ancient Aurora 1/48th scale aircraft, including possibly the worst rendition ever made of a FW 190 and the not-too-bad Curtiss Helldiver.
Models_03 shows mostly Pegaso 1/48th aircraft, including two Navions, an Ercoupe and what I think is a really rare Stinson, plus a Monogram 1/40th Tripacer.
Models_04 has the old Hawk XF-92, the Hawk Banshee, a reasonable 1/48th scale Grumman Tracker and a fairly nice Temco Pinto.
Models_05 includes what I believe to be the Aurora Cessna 310, the Hawk Winnie Mae, an AMT Lockheed Vega and a nicely done Convair Tradewind.

There were a lot more, but these are the ones that I thought were the more unusual.

Kits_01 is a shot of some the unbuilt kits that were acquired at the same time.  The stack includes four 1/200 Matchbox Boeing 737s, four Lb(?) B-727s, several bagged 1/144th B-727s (probably Airfix), and most interestingly, an Airfix Fairey Rotodyne.  
 
Rather than sending the photos to the entire club roster, I thought that maybe one of the club’s web gurus could post the photos and verbiage somewhere so that club members who were interested could take a look.  I’m sure the museum would be happy to sell off any or all of these cheaply. If anyone bites, they could contact me with an offer and I’ll bring them to the next club meeting. 

Someone really should take the Aurora Focke Wulf and clean it up, as it’s god-awful!
