Monogram Speedee-Bilt Spad Pursuit  - Flying Scale Model Airplane, G8
Monogram Speedee-Bilt Spad Pursuit - Flying Scale Model Airplane, G8
Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc,   old
$145

First issue from the late 1940s or early 50s. For the advanced Monogram collector. Early completely pre-fabricated multi-media kit featuring pre-colored and die cut balsa wood, precarved balsa, finished Monofoil wing, plastic detail parts (such as cowl and prop) and rubber motor. Designed for rubber free flight or Co2 engine power. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all wood and plastic parts, decals and instructions/plans. Before there were plastic models, there were wooden aircraft kits. These usually came in two types - solid and stick and tissue. The solid models were static and usually contained a few blocks of balsa and sometimes a detail part or two. These "Make Wood Look Like Plane" models required a very high level of skill in carving and finishing. The stick and tissue variety were slightly easier to build and provided the ultimate thrill - they could fly when complete with rubber power (and later with free-flight gas and eventually RC). They still required a great deal of skill, so manufactures sought ways to make model building more accessible to everyone. One idea was pre-carving and/or prefabrication. This raised prices, naturally. Many manufactures launched lines of 'easy' to build flying models but only Monogram succeeded in making an entire line at an affordable price that would actual fly. The original "Speedee-Bilt" kits were in one-piece two-color boxes. In the early 1950s, shortly before plastic kits were available, Monogram changed to the 'hardbox' with a lithographic slick glued to the top. Speedee-Bilt kits contained die cut and pre painted wooden parts, completely formed airfoil wings, carved wheels and numerous plastic details like cowling, pilot, missiles, prop and whatever was required. Assembly was by detailed full size plans and instructions. Monogram carried the Speedee-Bilt line for several years past it's prime and the advent of plastic kits, a testimony to the quality and popularity.
Heller Strasbourg Battlecruiser, 1/400, L1030
Heller Strasbourg Battlecruiser, 1/400, L1030
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint,   old
$285

Still factory sealed. Rare. The Dunkerque-class Battlecruisers were the French response to the German Graf Spee-class and the fast and well-armed Italian ships at the time. If the 1900 to 1930 span of French shipbuilding could be defined as lacking a clear vision or plan, the Strasbourg and her sister decisively ended that period. The products of superior design and engineering, the two sisters would re-define fast capital ships as would their near-sisters Battleships Richelieu and Jean Bart after them. But world events would conspire against these beautiful ships and there visibility in naval history. The Strasbourg was begun in 1934 at St. Nazire, launched in 1936 and put into service in 1939. She never navigated in peacetime. Displacement was 26,500 ton and top speed was 30 knots. Main armament was (8) 330mm guns and (16) 130 mm dual purpose. The main and secondary guns were mounted in the first quadruple turrets. Both main 330 mm turrets faced forward so that all main guns could fire when the enemy was sighted or in pursuit. Her superior speed would allow her to escape anything that she could not out-gun. Like most ships of the day she featured the 'All-Or-Nothing' armor design or 'armored box'. The compact design and placement of the main and secondary armament allowed unusually high armor protection for a battlecruiser. Serious consideration was also given to underwater protection, and the ships had a unique and effective (as events would prove) anti-mine/torpedo system with a novel water-exclusive material. At Mers-El-Kebir, her sistership Dunkerque was pinned at the pier. In an unlucky set of events, a ship moored next to her was sunk along with it's load of depth-charges. Later, a torpedo set off the huge explosive cargo. The damage to Dunkerque was immense. Other ships would have sunk, but she did not. Strasbourg was the only capital ship to get underway during the disaster at Mers-El-Kebir. Her superior speed allowed her to escape while two other French Battleships were sunk. She fled to Toulon, where she was eventually joined by the hastily repaired Dunkerque. However, when the Germans threatened to seize the ships, the entire fleet including the two sisters was scuttled in the harbor. The Italians raised the Strasbourg and stripped her of her guns; but she was bombed and sunk by Allied aircraft. In 1945 she was raised again, but salvage was beyond hope. In 1955 she was sold for scrap.

Aurora Curtiss Hawk P-6E, 1/43, 116-100
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint,   old
$110

Still factory sealed. The kit is dated 1958, but this is obviously a later issue as the Aurora logo does not say 'Famous Fighters' in the boarder and has no sunburst. Due to the 100 price extension, it is most likely from 1960 or '61.

Cleveland Ryan FR-1 Fireball - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-92
Cleveland Ryan FR-1 Fireball - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-92
Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc,   old
$175

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). The model has not been started. 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 Bleriots 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. Lindberghs 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 Lindberghs 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 worlds longest running single-owner (77 years) 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 Aviations great Recruiter Clevelands 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 1920 Monroe Special Indianapolis 500 Winner - Kit and Built-Up, 1/30, 521-79
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++,   old
$135

Very rare. Includes a boxed kit and a partial built up. The kit is from ex-Best molds. Aurora purchased the Best molds for the Indianapolis 500 Winners and made one issue in 1958. Kit is molded in gloss blue with real rubber tires, spoke wheels and includes a crew of two and some interior detail. NOTE: the kit has been started. Someone assembled the sub-frames to the body and the steering wheel to the dash. However, they used Elmer's white glue, so the parts simply fell off. The remaining glue easily popped off the parts, leaving them with only slight to no wear. NOTE: includes all car parts and instructions but the top section of the brake handle and the decals are both missing. The front axle is missing one short end (that the wheel slides over), which can be replaced with a stock cylindrical part. The partial built up model is missing one rear brake drum and the steering wheel - other than that, it looks to be complete. Quality of assembly and paint is very good, and it is painted the correct green color with a red nose.

$125

Rare. From about 1953. Early Gowland-produced set with no part number. Gowland designed and molded these kits as well as providing the box artwork and instructions - Revell did the marketing. Inside, the kit is correct with all cardboard dividers, tires molded in black and the cars molded in red, black, dark blue, yellow and green, correct instructions and the small parts are in the factory wax paper bags. The models have never been started. All kits have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Before the 1950s 'model building' as a hobby did not even make the top 10 list of boys activities. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream. Shortly after the turn of the century, many dedicated modelers built flying or static airplanes, ship, train, automotive or other subjects. Basic kits existed, but the majority of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s. The phenomenon of the Revell/Gowland & Gowland Highway Pioneers car kits was a significant mover in proving that model building as a hobby could have mass appeal, provided that the kits were easy enough to build and finish. They could be built in an hour after dinner and looked like the real car. The 'Highway Pioneers' series helped lead to the production of other subjects in plastic. The effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, 'model building' was the # 1 past time of American boys.

Still factory sealed. Kit is well molded and includes interior and engine detail. Optional position landing gear. The Staggerwing is still considered one of the finest civil aircraft designs to reach mass production. The brainchild of Walter Beech, the G17S had a top speed of over 200 mph and landed at 60 mph - all in 1932. It was faster than many fighter planes of the day.
