Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG-

I have seen this model built and it is a beautiful large-scale representation of the ship. The kit has never been started.

Aurora Lockheed F-90 - West Hempstead Issue, 1/48, 33-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$255   

Very, very early West Hempstead F-90 molded in Brooklyn gray. When Aurora issued it's first two plastic kits, they were copies of the Hawk Model Company's F9F and F-90 fighters. The first Aurora issue was in the rather plain and very rare flip-top one-piece box with the kit molded in gray with no landing gear and missiles from the Brooklyn factory. The second issue was also from Brooklyn and molded in gray with no landing gear or missiles but was in the new two-piece hardbox. The third official issue is the West Hempstead issue and is molded in silver with landing gear and missiles. But this is where it gets interesting. Aurora ran a tight ship and was famous for letting nothing go to waste. If there were extra boxes laying around after the new issue came out, there were used. The same went for old stands, old decals and even old injection molded kits. This gives the collector some very interesting scenarios. This kit is one of those. This is a Brooklyn 'Famous Fighters' box for the F-90. However, under the original tissue paper is a GRAY molded West Hempstead issue with landing gear and missiles- a case of using up the old plastic after doing a mold change. Plastic was delivered by rail car and stored in silos - a silo could last a long time and feed several mold machines. The decals are old Brooklyn with the correct large TATEM COMPANY script on the back. The stand is the large, clear rectangular Booklyn two-piece version, but during the mold modifications, Aurora machined the 'Brooklyn' markings from the mold and of course the stand. The instructions are the modified Brooklyn- they show the landing gear and missiles but with 'West Hempstead' under the old logo. An interesting piece for the advanced collector. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Revell Northrop F-89D Scorpion - 'S' Issue with Early One-Piece Stand Arm, 1/80, H221-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++++

$155   

1955 first issue in the 'S' hardbox. Fantastic early artwork in exceptional condition. Color and gloss are like new and all four corners are solid with no repairs. This kit contains the true first issue one piece stand arm to the Revelving base. In practice, this arm was too brittle and weak and broke very easily. Revell was quick to replace it it and change the instructions accordingly. The new arm has two parts and continued in production until about 1960. This kit also has the correct 1st issue instructions showing the one piece arm. Molded in the correct high gloss silver and clear. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions, which are also as new.

Cleveland Grumman F6F-3 Hellcat - (F6F3) Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-97

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.

Revell USS Enterprise CV6 Aircraft Carrier, 1/490, 2556

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG-

$155   

1979 Revell Advent issue. Kit is over 20 inches long and includes a one piece hull, SBD scout-bombers, moving cranes, detailed island structure and a partial hanger decks where you can display aircraft. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including decals, flag sheet and instructions. If you are curious, this kit is actually different from the Revell 1/490 CV-5 Yorktown and Hornet kits of the same era. The Yorktown differences include the bridge catwalk, island searchlight platforms, number of search lights, small boat configuration and radar. CV-6 has a combat record unequaled in history of the US Navy and is considered the most Successful Warship in History. Her totals were as follows: 20 Battle Stars, 911 Aircraft Destroyed and 71 Ships Sunk. She took part in almost every major action of the Pacific war from 1941 to 1945. The fascinating history of this ship is told by Commander Edward P. Stafford, USN, in his legendary book 'The Big E - The Story of the USS Enterprise.'
