Cleveland Kling's 1937 Fokerts Racer - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-71

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


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. 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.

Aircraft Models Company of America Fokker Universal Scale Replica Model Kit - Flying Wooden Model From 1933 - 24 Inch Wingspan

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++


Very rare kit from 1933. Although well known, balsa wood did not come into widespread commercial modeling use until the 1930s. Before then, aircraft kits were composed of hardwoods, bamboo, metal fittings and silk, fabric or tissue covering. This interesting kit bridges the gap between 'old' and 'new' (at the time) wooden kits. The parts are balsa, bamboo, metal and celluloid. The manufacture was Aircraft Models Company of America, 29 Bartholomew Avenue, Hartford Connecticut. They made solid and flying models and the original price of this model was $1.50 - rather expensive at the time. The high price was justified by the unusual complete nature of the kit. The prop blank is machined (not finished) carved, all ribs are completely cut out and notched, the nose block is machine carved, the wheels completely formed celluloid and balsa, the stripwood is cut to the proper width and height, there is clear celluloid for the windows, complete full size blue-print plans, metal bushings and washers, sandpaper, beautiful red tissue, a glass bottle of "Tissue Cement - Aircraft Models Company of American", a bottle of "Tissue Dope" (also labeled), a cork-sealed vial of red paint, and general assembly instructions. The kit has never been started. NOTE: it is missing 2 of 6 small brass eyelets (bushings) and 3 of 6 very small washers. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts, plans, instructions and supplies.
