Cleveland P-61 Black Widow Industrial Training - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, T-155

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$185   

3 foot wingspan model from 1943. The 'Industrial Training' models were Cleveland's response to a wartime need for simplified models that did not sacrifice realism. All of the Industrial Training models had a constant 3 foot wingspan and were essential simplified SF kits. The line was a big sales success during the war and was expanded from the original 6 kits to 11 total. 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.

KVZ Tupolev Tu-134 Interflug Crusty, 1/100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair-

$79   

Rare kit of this Soviet Transport nicknamed 'Crusty' by NATO. The Tu-134 is a design similar to the DC-9 and has seen widespread and successful service. It is perhaps most famous (or infamous) for the death of Mozambican president in 1986. The Tu-134 was a gift from the Soviets. When returning from the meeting, the aircraft crashed into mountains inside South Africa. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. KVZ was a Eastern German manufacturer of kits during the Cold War. They made a fascinating range of civil and military subjects. If it were not for their efforts, there would be many 'Iron Curtain' subjects (especially civil) that we would never have injection molded kits of.

Monogram Midget Racer - The First Monogram Plastic Kit, 1/24, P1

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$155   

Although this is the first Monogram plastic kit, it is the second issue of this kit from later in 1954 (read below). In the late 1940s/early 1950s, Monogram began to use injection molded details in the famous Speedee-Bilt and SuperKit aircraft models. The parts chosen for injection molding were generally difficult to carve from wood. From this experience, Monogram was ready to embark on all-plastic models. The first effort was kit number P-1 (for plastic kit #1) in 1954, the 1/24 scale Midget Racer. The box is the correct hardbox dated 1954. The advertising on the outside is unique and is used to promote this new type of model and the ease of assembly. The kit and sub-assemblies are pictured and named on the sides. This box has excellent color and gloss, solid side corners, no price tags or tape but suffers average general wear including creases, heavy corner wear at the left and right top, and general soiling as shown. The box bottom is intact with four solid original corners, but one long seam has split. Inside, the kit is molded in the correct red plastic. The parts are still slightly flexible and have much less than the typical warping - so this was an unusually stable batch of acetate that was correctly molded. The instructions are correctly labeled P-1 and are near mint. As mentioned before, this is a second issue because the kit has decals and the modified instructions showing the decals. (The first issue has no decals and the instructions do not show them. Kit P-2 is the same way). The decals are also labeled P-1 and are in 'excellent' condition with the usual yellowing and a slight curve. The correct die-cut windshield is included as well as a Monogram mini-catalog correctly showing the only 8 all-plastic kits available at that date, all all with 'P' kit numbers (no 'PC' or 'PA'). The kit has never been started and is inventoried 100% complete. A great piece for the advanced collector.
