Airfix Short Sunderland III Flying Boat, 1/72, 06001-1

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$36   

Kit features beaching gear, rotating turrets with elevating guns, movable control surfaces, external bomb load and rotating props. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Please NOTE that one prop blade is neatly broken at the hub. The blade is present. The Sunderland's 21-year record with the RAF has made it a legend. Derived from the Empire Class Flying Boat Airliners, Sunderland IIIs had a top speed of 210 mph and an endurance of 12 hours. These qualities made the Sunderland a superb platform for North Sea and North Atlantic patrols, ASW and SAR. Crews usually loved the airplane; its large size afforded many airborne comforts that bomber or fighter crews could only dream of, such as bunk, a head and an area for food preparation.

Micro-Trains Colorado & Southern Flat Car HNo3 1930s - Metal HO Train, HO

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$15   

Amazingly detailed factory built, painted and lettered kit that is mainly metal (and heavy). The car is in 'near mint' condition; the only flaws are light dust and one of two assembled footsteps have fallen off (they used the wrong glue). All the other small parts have yet to be assembled. It appears to have been run once judging from the wheel wear.

Cleveland Hawker Hurricane Mk.IIc - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, SF-78

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$155   

This is a Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. The kit came from a long time collector of 1930s and 1940s models and is in exceptional condition. All Cleveland kits were exceptionally complete and this one is no exception. Features very high quality balsa printwood and strip wood, covering material, highest quality plans, all parts required for assembly and decals (if issued with the kit). NOTE: two wing ribs have been cut from a sheet. There is no other cutting and no assembly. The model has not been started. 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, called 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 'Aviations 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.
