Cleveland Playboy Junior Gas Powered Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, GP-5006

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

54 inch wingspan gasoline powered free-flight competition model. Cleveland entered the 1930s gas model market with the famous Playboy series. The design is so solid and popular that it is still a favorite at meets today (Like SAM - Society of Antique Modelers) where free-flight competition exist. Cleveland was late to introduce these kits (1939), but they wanted to ensure that the quality and performance was there. It appears that there were three aircraft in the Playboy line - the Baby, Junior and Senior. The model has not been started and is in exceptional condition. It comes from a long-time flying aircraft collection. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. The Cleveland Model and Supply Company played a pivotal role in the development of true scale models. In 1909 Bleriot’s English Channel flight caused a surge in aviation and model aircraft around the globe. Several companies were ideally positioned to take advantage of the aviation craze. In the USA, Wading River Manufacturing Co. (1909), White Aeroplane (1911), Ideal Model Aeroplane (1911), Broadfield Model Aeroplanes (1919) were among these pioneers, offering everything from plans and parts to complete kits and ARF models. Lindbergh’s 1927 crossing of the Atlantic Ocean caused an even bigger world-wide phenomenon called “The Aviation Craze” that extended up to the start of World War II. Many companies such as Megow, Guillow's and others started right around the time of Lindbergh’s flight. Some of these models flew and flew well, but they all had one thing in common - were generally not accurate scale representations. In 1929, a youngster named Ed Packard had a very advanced dream – to produce incredibly accurate, true scale models that flew perfectly. This radical idea established the world’s longest operating single-owner model airplane supply business – Cleveland Model and Supply Company. To this day, Cleveland models are treasured as the most accurate flying scale models produced. The fact that Mr. Packard started and successfully grew this business during The Great Depression is a testament to his ideals and business skill. I highly suggest the excellent book called ‘Aviation’s great Recruiter – Cleveland’s Ed Packard’ by H.L. (Herm) Schreiner. It is an excellent history of the man, his company and the times of the Golden Age of Model Aviation.

Revell Tally-Ho Coach - Miniature Masterpieces, 1/48, H513-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Rare 1955 kit. This kit features some of my favorite box artwork by Scott Eidson. Very highly detailed model includes coach, horses and figures as shown on the box art.The kit is as new inside - it has never been started and is inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and like-new building instructions. Although it is damaged, the original 'krinkle' bag is included also. 'Miniature Masterpieces' was formed through an alliance of Lou Glasser (Revell) and Steve Adams (Adams Action Models) in 1953. Although the molds were made at Adams and it had the appearance of an independent company, the firm was run by Revell down to the prototypes being made at the Revell plant. Originally there was no evidence of the parent company on the surface. The State Coach of England was the first kit, issued in 1953. More kits of excellent quality followed. Revell completely took over the line in 1954 and in that year and the next, kits were labeled 'Revell' with a 'Miniature Masterpiece' label on the box top also.

Lindberg Q-Ship - (Decoy Ship / Sea Raider / USS Atik / SS-Carolyn) - Motorized, 1/390, 780M-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM-

Sold   

Very rare. From the late 1950s. Fantastic condition kit with Ray Gaedke artwork. The box is near mint and has a very light wear and a light crease as the only flaws. This is the Motorized version of the Lindberg Q Ship, which has an unknown prototype but is suppose to be a WWI style Q-Ship submarine trap. The ship appears to be a WWI British Q Ship by the title, yet looks a little modern and has US numbers of 171 (which apparently mean nothing). This model was also issued as the 'Decoy Ship' and 'Sea Raider'. The Lindberg model actually has the layout of the AK-101 USS ATIK, which was formerly the SS-CAROLYN, built in 1912. The CAROLYN was recommissioned as the USS ATIK and at the start of WWI which was a real US Q-ship. This kit has never been started. It is either still in the internally sealed factory bag or has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Comet Boeing B-29 Superfortress 25.5 inch Wing Span Solid Model, 1/64, M3

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

1944 issue. When aircraft modeling became popular in the 1930s, most builders made flying models. However, there were a measurable percentage of hobbyist who insisted on making static (called 'solid' models) scale models with the maximum amount of detail in the best tradition of ship modelers. The kits they used to practice their art were basic. Many times the kit consisted of blocks of wood and plans - the famous (or infamous) "Make Wood Look Like Airplane" kits from the 1930 and 1940s. This did not stop them from producing magnificent works of art, many of which are in museums around the world. The more deluxe kits, such as this Comet example, features precarved wood, cut to a profile shape in all three dimensions. This kit also contains other deluxe touches such as wheels, clear plastic blisters and other details, full color decals and even a full tube of cement. Inside, this kit has never been started and is 100% complete with all wooden parts, clear plastic blisters, black plastic wheels, decals (like new), sandpaper, full plans and glue. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
