MPC Junkers Ju-87B Stuka Profile Series - 2/Trop. 4/St.G2 'Immelmann' Libya 1941 - Gruppe Stuka Geschwader Z 'Immelmann' Eastern Front - 2/Trop. 1/St G1 Libya 1941, 1/72, 2-1107-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$28   

1970s issue of the popular 'Profile Series.' Very cleanly molded kit with decals for all three aircraft listed. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag including decals and instructions. The decals are 'excellent' which is rare. Airfix molded these kits in England, sealed them in bags and shipped them to MPC. MPC added the decals, instructions and box and marketed them through numerous outlets in the USA including hobby shops, grocery stores, dime stores and department stores. This arrangement with Airfix was older than the Profile Series, dating back to when the very colorful Airfix 'Craftmaster' kits were marketed in the USA.

Cleveland Boeing P-12E - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-8

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$155   

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.

Strombecker Beechcraft Bonanza V35 - Solid Wood Model Aircraft Kit, C-41

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG-

$155   

Rare. Classic early 1950s kit. Made of solid Western Pine - not balsa. Builds up to an impressive display model. Kit includes fuselage, wings, elevators, rudder all cut to shape, sandpaper and a small parts bag with propeller, wheels, etc. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Decals and instructions are excellent. Before plastic kits were introduced, Strombecker was famous as the premier hardwood preshaped model manufacture. In the 1940s and 1950s, Strombecker kits were flawlessly engineered but not inexpensive. All wooden parts are hardwood and are precarved to shape - usually only a quick sanding would finish them.
