Hawk Bell P-39 Airacobra - Solid Wood Model Airplane, 1/48, 72

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+

For the advanced Hawk collector. Hawk was one of the few manufactures making wooden kits to a constant scale of 1/48. However, the company was innovative as it quickly included injection molded accessories. This kit dates from the very late 1930s or early 1940s and contains a very nice three-dimension profile cut wooden fuselage (most manufactures only cut them in two dimensions if at all), two dimension profile cut wings, rudder and elevator, three completely finished wood wheels/tires, cast metal prop, sealed tube of glue, a cardstock pilot, backrest, throttle quadrant and instrument panel, full color insignia sheet, full size, well-detailed plans and one glass tube of factory paint with the original cork stopper. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The box sides show 'Railroad Models', 'Airplane Models' and 'Boat Models' as part of the Hawk line.

Cleveland Boeing P-26A Peashooter Flying Model, 1/16, SF-60

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$75   

This is a Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. 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 insignia. 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.

Orange Crush-Revell 1909 Stanley Steamer, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$69   

Very rare kit with a fascinating history. Around 1958/59, Orange Crush of Mexico offered a promotion. They offered free, colorful, plastic model cars if you collected correctly-marked Orange Crush bottle caps. The models are 1/32 scale Revell Highway Pioneer series - although there is no mention of Revell or Lodela anywhere on the box. Orange Crush had the boxes and even the instructions specially made for them with no mention of a manufacture. They were never given numbers. The boxes were very thin and fragile cardboard. This has contributed to wear and you must be very cautious with them. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bag and the instructions are sealed in the bag as well. You could redeem your caps two ways - at the Orange Crush truck and at a Modelandia Hobby House. The box sides show the 18 cars in the series. Orange Crush also released two full-color booklets and a complete paint set for the cars. A colorful cardboard box held 7 colors of paint in glass bottles, complete with 'Orange Crush' screw-on caps! The entire promotion was done in coordination with Modelandia Hobby House which had up to 19 stores. Modelandia's name appears on each of the boxes and the paint as well. Robina S.A. was the bottler or distributor of Orange Crush in Mexico at that time. The box side lists the other 18 kits with small color pictures of each and shows three sizes of OC - Family Size (Familiar), Grand (Grande) and Normal. You could also obtain models with Titan bottle caps. Titan was also bottled by Robina and came in large (Titan) and smaller (Titancito) sizes and apparently more than one flavor. We do not know how Orange Crush had access to the plastic kits or who sealed the internal bags with the Crush instructions inside them. We can assume that it may have been Lodela, since they would have had access to the Revell molds. It is not know for how long the promotion lasted, but Orange Crush was one of the most dominant soft drinks in Mexico at that time. Here is one clue: some boxes claim that Modelandia had 13 locations; other boxes, which obviously came later on, claim 19 locations. This may indicate that this promotion went on for a significant amount of time.

$69   

1973 issue of the classic 1959 'S' kit. Model has many action features: Wings fold, dive brakes operate, canopy slides to show full cockpit, landing gear retracts and cowling comes off to show fully detailed engine. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Since it's introduction in 1946, he venerable Skyraider has been produced in more versions and performed more duties than any other aircraft in US history. This version is the Rescue Support Aircraft that would fly support with the Jolly Green Helicopters to rescue downed pilots in Vietnam. The Skyraiders slower speed and ability to carry an unbelievable amount of firepower made it ideal for this roll.
