Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+


Still factory sealed. This kit is either from the original Monogram molds or is a direct part-for-part copy of Monogram's 1/48 kit. The side photos look like two of them were scanned directly from the Monogram 1970s White Box kit! well molded kit featuring cockpit detail, crew of two, two anti-tank cannon, 4-section windshield and decals for the tank-killing ace Major Ulrich Rudel, who destroyed over 500 tanks from his Stuka. In case you are interested, there is a great short history of the aircraft which reads exactly as follows: 'Among them G=Type, which was rebuilt with equippment of BK 37 machien gun For Obserber and two guns 37mm below two wings to attack tanks, played an active part mainly in Eastern front. The model, with its wing span of 15 m, body length 11.13 m, height 3.84 m, the highest speed 375 km/h, can be assembled keeping it's pilot cabin opened or closed.'

Frog Douglas DC-7C BOAC, 1/96, 351P

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM-


Very rare. 1950s two piece hardbox issue. Very close to 1/100 scale and still the largest injection molded DC-7 kit. Nicely molded with very fine raised panel line detail and recessed control surfaces and doors. The box has great color, four solid corners, no rips or tears and very minor wear only - it is the best that I have seen. Inside, the special cardboard side housing is still held in place with the original staples and contains an unopened green capsule of cement and a glass vial of white paint with the factory cork. The paint is still a liquid - it has not turned solid. The very long decal sheet is intact and near mint. The decals have not rolled and are in excellent condition - they have very, very little of the typical yellowing. The instructions are excellent with light yellowing and have no tears or writing. The kit is molded in the correct gloss silver and clear plastic with a large dark blue stand. The kit has never been started and has been inventoried complete with all parts, decals, instructions, glue and paint. The propellers are on the original cardboard holder and the blades are not broken. Shipping insurance is required on this model.

Cleveland Kling's Folkerts Speed King Racer - Balsa Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, 71

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Older issue in the cardboard box with 'Cleveland World Famous Models' printed in silver. From around 1937-1942. This is a Cleveland 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. This kit is specifically designed as a scale model with retractable landing gear. However, if you do wish to fly it, additional instructions are provided on the necessary modifications. 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). 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.

Orange Crush-Revell 1910 Studebaker Cupe Electro (Electric Coupe) - Bagged, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Bagged


Very rare kit with a fascinating history. Around 1958/59, Orange Crush of Mexico offered a promotion. They offered free, colorful, plastic model cars if you collected correctly-marked Orange Crush bottle caps. The models are 1/32 scale Revell Highway Pioneer series - although there is no mention of Revell or Lodela anywhere on the boxes. Orange Crush had the boxes and even the instructions specially made for them with no mention of a manufacture. They were never given numbers. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes the correct instructions. NOTE: two springs have clean breaks, but all parts are present and it is an easy repair. You could redeem your caps two ways - at the Orange Crush truck and at a Modelandia Hobby House. The box sides show the 18 cars in the series. Orange Crush also released two full-color booklets and a complete paint set for the cars. A colorful cardboard box held 7 colors of paint in glass bottles, complete with 'Orange Crush' screw-on caps! The entire promotion was done in coordination with Modelandia Hobby House which had up to 19 stores. Modelandia's name appears on each of the boxes and the paint as well. Robina S.A. was the bottler or distributor of Orange Crush in Mexico at that time. The box side lists the other 18 kits with small color pictures of each and shows three sizes of OC - Family Size (Familiar), Grand (Grande) and Normal. You could also obtain models with Titan bottle caps. Titan was also bottled by Robina and came in large (Titan) and smaller (Titancito) sizes and apparently more than one flavor. We do not know how Orange Crush had access to the plastic kits or who sealed the internal bags with the Crush instructions inside them. We can assume that it may have been Lodela, since they would have had access to the Revell molds. It is not know for how long the promotion lasted, but Orange Crush was one of the most dominant soft drinks in Mexico at that time. Here is one clue: some boxes claim that Modelandia had 13 locations; other boxes, which obviously came later on, claim 19 locations. This may indicate that this promotion went on for a significant amount of time.

Heller SNECMA Coléoptère - Two Piece Box Issue, 1/48

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc-


Very rare early Heller issue from the late 1950s. This is the two-piece high gloss box with very desirable artwork. Please note that on these early kits Heller did not assign kit numbers on the box. Very nicely molded kit in big 1/48 scale. This kit has never been started.

Shipping insurance is required. The Société National d'Etude et de Construction de Moteurs d'Aviation (SNECMA) Coléoptère was a French vertical take-off and landing design that was to make expensive (and vulnerable) airfields obsolete. A thrust ratio of greater than 1:1 was achieved, and tests began in 1956. The design did fly and stole the show at Le Bourget in June 1957. However, like the Lockheed Pogo, it proved to be dangerous and quite a handful to fly.
