Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Liner SS America / Troop Ship USS West Point / S.S. Australis - Wooden Ship Kit, 1/330, 605

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$750   

Very rare. This is the finest example that I have ever seen of this rare kit. Large wooden and metal kit builds to just over 26 inches long. This model is of the SS America Ocean Liner, which was designed by the famous naval architect William Francis Gibbs. She was laid down in 1938 and entered service on August 22 1940 as the flagship of the United States Lines. World War II interrupted her passenger service. The ship was active through the war. She narrowly escaped being sunk off Singapore during the Japanese invasion. After the war she resumed her North Atlantic route. The liner was the pride of the US Merchant fleet before the USS United States was commissioned. When the 'Big U' entered service, the two liners were stable mates and often appeared in the same travel agency posters and prints. By 1964 aircraft had taken a large section of the ocean liner travelers away, and the America was sold to Chandris Group and was renamed the Australis. She sailed for 14 years in a very successful career and was the last liner to sail from Southampton to Australia/New Zealand. She was laid up on 1977. She changed owners several times, but was never again successful. While being towed to Thailand, the lines broke and she ran aground in the Canary Island, where the wreak broke up after time - but not before the locals rescued many items from the ship. The model box is excellent and the kit inside is in as-new condition. Kit features pre-carved hull, metal fittings, very large full size plans, print wood and heavy cardstock, clear material for windows, color flag sheet, building instructions with perspective views and rigging material and diagrams. Never started. I believe that I was the first one to remove the parts from the box when I performed the inventory. All of the fittings are still in factory sealed bags and the tissue packing material from the factory is still present. The kit is complete with all parts and plans. You can convert it to the USS West Point if you have photos of the ship (which are on the internet) - the main difference is the addition of lifeboats and different paint. Photos of the S.S. Australis will provide the needed data to convert her to that ship, but this conversion will require more work than the West Point.

Cleveland Fokker DR-1 Triplane - 18 Inch Wingspan Wooden Flying Model, 1/16, M-14

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$145   

This is a Cleveland 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. It was issued in 1932. 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, completely precarved nose cowl and wheels, covering material, metal stock, highest quality plans, all parts required for assembly and correct insignia. 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.

Aurora Convair 880 SuperJet TWA, 1/103, 384-250

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+++

$89   

Dated 1961. Rare larger-scale Aurora kit molded in white and clear with recessed control surface and door lines. Features clear cockpit windshield, full landing gear and a large clear 'Triangle World' stand. The kit has not been started. NOTE: missing nose gear door. This part is easily made from plastic stock, or is not needed if the kit if built in the 'gear up' configuration. Inventoried with all other parts and excellent decals and instructions. The Convair 880 and it's near sister 990 were very high performance airliners. Unfortunately they did not find favor with commercial operators. Only 65 880s were produced from 1959 to 1962. The aircraft was designed to be smaller and faster than the DC-8 and 707 - this market did not develop, however, and if it did it could have been served with less expensive designs. The 990 was a larger and faster (mach .91) airliner, but it failed to meet it's range criteria for east to west crossings of the USA. As a result, only 37 were made. Interestingly enough, several 990s continued to be operated by private owners and NASA operated two 990s for decades after the last 990 was phased out of commercial service.

Revell A3J (A-5A) Vigilante 'S' Issue, 1/83, H196-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$125   

This was the last "S" kit issued by Revell. Dated 1959. Kit features opening tandem canopies, moving control surfaces, detailed, removable jet engines and two pilots. As the last "S" kit, it incorporates a critical improvement for the time - recessed panel lines. The entire kit has recessed panel lines and rivet detail-no raised marks. It has an attention to detail that is lacking in many older Pre-S and S kits. Molded in the correct gloss light gray and clear with the "Globe" clear stand. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. NOTE: the box displays better than the 'Good' grade but it has a 1.25 by 1 inch section of missing litho on one short side.

Yunyj Tyechinik Mikoyan Gurevich Mig-21F - Bagged, 1/50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$24   

Unusual near-1/48 scale Soviet model. This release is from 'Yunyj Tyechinik', which succeeded MZMPI (which was the first kit manufacture in the USSR) and continued till a new name was introduced in the mid 1970s. Features fine raised panel lines, pilot and full landing gear. Molded in gray, white and black. Never started. The aircraft has been inventoried complete but NOTE: missing the display stand. Includes instructions and from what I can tell, it did not come with decals.

Sterling British SE-5 Scout - 32 inch Wingspan Flying Model, C6

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$119   

Superb kit from the 1960s and 'the winner of many national and international contests' and one of the 'few able to execute the stunt pattern. Designed for control line flight with .19 to .35 engines. Features detailed metal radiator, cleanly die-cut balsa and plywood parts that are inter-notched for fast and easy assembly, shaped and notched leading and trailing edges, rock maple hardwood motor mounts, material for machine guns, gas model silkspan, formed wire landing gear, hardware pack, authentic decals, extensive full size plans and more. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Sterling was a famous manufacture dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I personally considered Sterlings to be 'deluxe' kits.
