P-51 Mustang - Mark's Models Kit

Vintage Model Kit Archive

For the benefit of all the aeromodeling community, I have been collecting images of vintage airplane, helicopter, and boat kits which have appeared on eBay and WorthPoint. Over time, it has been a very good source of photos of it boxes and labels, plans, and all the included kit components - balsa, plywood, hardwood, music wire, canopies, and hardware. Hyperlinks to external websites is kept to a minimum because pages disappear frequently. Copyrights, if any, are hereby acknowledged.

Marks Model P-51 Mustang Kit (Dynaflite label) - Airplanes and RocketsThis particular kit is of the Mark's model P-51 Mustang. You can see the Marks Models label was pasted over a Dynaflite box. An Internet search shows at least two varieties of box label, depending on the era. Mark Smith, of Windfree and Windward R/C glider fame, founded the company. According to the Dynaflite website in 1999, "Marks Models became Dynaflite many years ago." The date seems to be around 1995, when Hobbico bought Marks Models, and then turned it into Dynaflite. Construction was of balsa and plywood, vacuum-formed plastic components, and a sheeted foam wing.

Carpe Diem! (Seize the Day!)

Even during the busiest times of my
life I have endeavored to maintain
some form of model building activity.
