Aurora Boeing B-47 Stratojet, 1/180, 493-49

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

$155   

From 1956. Very rare first issue with 'Famous Fighters' square 'Northern Lights' logo. Classic Jo Kotula artwork. This issue only lasted one year, as in 1957 the new oval logo box was used. The box is in excellent condition with all solid corners, no fading or stains, no price tags or marks . Somehow, this box escaped the factory thin tape, as there are not even any marks for that. Inside, the model is as new down to the original packing tissue. The parts are high gloss silver. The instructions are dated 1956 and correctly show the old style logo and square clear stand. The decals and stand are correct for this issue also. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts, decals, instructions and correct square clear 2-piece stand.

Cleveland P-61 Black Widow - For R/C or Free Flight, SF-155

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

$650   

Giant 1/16 scale kit. Ideal kit for electric power and conversion to RC. This model is in the original plain but sturdy cardboard box with 'Cleveland' stamped in ink on it and the name of the kit and kit #. 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). 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.
