Cleveland Travel-Air Mystery Ship - Flying Or Scale, 1/16, SF-2

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$75   

NOTE: perfect builder, please read carefully. This is a Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. Features very high quality balsa printwood and strip wood, covering material, highest quality plans, all parts required for assembly and insignia. NOTE: this model has minor assembly. The engine core (crankcase) parts have been cut out and assembled. Quality of assembly is 'very good+.' The cowl parts and a few other have been cut out but not assembled; quality of cutting is 'very good++.' There is no other work done. The kit has been inventoried complete with all parts, plans and insignia sheets. 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.

Heron IIs were also selected by the RAF for the Queens Flight, which is a statement to it's reliability and safety.

Lindberg F7U-1 Cutlass, 1/48, 510

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$75   

From 1954 or '55 and with Ray Gaedeke art. Rare first issue hardbox with script Lindberg logo on the box top and two long sides. Large-scale kit is molded in an incredible deep gloss blue and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. In the 1930s, Paul Lindberg was designing, building and flying stick and tissue aircraft like so many other men and boys of the time. His plans appear in Popular Aviation magazine and he made a good name for himself. When injection molding showed the way to increased kits sales in the late 1940s/early 1950s, he quickly teamed up with Mr. Olsen to create 'O-lin' models. Ray Gaedke was one the the early artists for O-lin. In the early 1950s Paul Lindberg had control and had his name as the logo. The first logo is the one on this kit - 'Lindberg' in script with 'Products' arched across the top and 'Incorporated' arched across the bottom to create a broken circle around the script. Ray Gadke continued his bold and colorful artwork for Lindberg and created many timeless classics. Although the early Lindberg kits were all ex-Olin, Lindberg continued the O-lin practice of placing large 1/48 scale kits in a very, very small box such as this kit.

Tamiya HMS Prince of Wales Battleship, 1/700, 122

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$20   

1/700 scale waterline kit. Very finely molded and detailed. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. There are no decals; sometimes these kits did not come with decals and I am not sure if this one did or not. The Prince of Wales saw very active service in WWII from fighting the Bismarck with HMS Hood to Far East service with the HMS Repulse off the Malay peninsula. It was in this battle that both ships were sunk by Japanese airborne torpedo attack.

Heller Char Somua S-35 Tank, 1/35, 81170

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$19   

It is a little known fact that French Tanks defeated German Panzers in the first tank-to-tank battles ever fought (WWI tanks never met in head-to-head combat). French Armor and Troops held the Germans in Belgium; unfortunately the main thrust was south, which was defended by the weakest troops and was undetected until it was too late. This is one of those tanks, the excellent French WWII Somua S35. Highly detailed older kit with 216 parts. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.
