Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


'Master' issue in the agreed museum scale of 1/16. 33 3/4 inch wingspan. Idea for conversion to electric power and RC. Very highly detailed and complete kit for it's time. Features high quality printwood, stripwood, center drilled nacelle blocks, all other blocks as required, spars, clear window material, very large and highly detailed full size plans and more. Please note this is the wartime issue and does not have paint bottles. 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.

TMY WACO Biplane 29.5 Inch Gas Model Airplane

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


Very rare. This is an early Japanese export kit from TMY in Tokyo, probably dating right around 1960. It was clearly intended for control line operation. The kit has a very high degree of prefabrication for that time, featuring fully cut and ready to assemble plywood fuselage bulkheads, fully cut balsa wing rigs, cut out (but final sanding required) wheels pants, tail planes and all other wood parts, strip wood, formed wire main gear strut, balloon-type main wheels and solid tail wheel, an extensive (still sealed) hardware packet, wood for sheeting, silk covering material (still sealed) and full size plans.

Avalon Hill Tobruk Tank Battles in North Africa 1942 Strategy Board Game, 841

Other Materials,   Box Condition: Good


Classic armor strategy game in excellent condition. You could easily argue that the game was never played. The 3 boards are 'as-new' condition with no wear, the Roster Pad is intact, the German/British Hit Probability Charts and Casualty Table and look factory new. 95% of the pieces are were never punched; a small handful were punched and put back into the holders. Instructions are as new. The original Avalon Hill order form, mailing list and catalog card and even the 'Game/Parts Price List' are present and excellent. I do not see any dice; they may or may not have come with this game.

Lindberg F4U-5N Corsair, 1/48, 512

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM


Very rare kit from about 1954 or earlier. First Lindberg issue with no price suffix and borrowing the Ray Gaedke artwork that he did for the O-Lin issue.

The box has fantastic color and gloss, four solid corners, no price tags or tag marks and no tape other than the light marks from the factory tape. The only flaws are light general wear.

O-lin F4U-5N Corsair - (F4U5N), 1/46, 512

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++


Very rare kit for the advanced collector. This is a very hard to fine original O-lin kit in the very small box, early Ray Gaedke box art and advertisement for O-lin cement on the top. Produced in 1949 or just before. O-Lin (Olin) was founded by Paul Lindberg and a Mr. Olsen - hence the company name. Although a producer of flying models in the 1930s, O-lin produced some of the earliest American injection molded kits in the late 1940s. In 1950 the partnership may have ended, because all branding was changed to Lindberg and Paul Lindberg. Inside, the kit is as new. It is molded in a beautiful, glossy medium blue and has the correct decals and instructions. The decals and instructions have minor yellowing but are in excellent condition. The kit has never been started and is inventoried complete with all parts, instructions and decals.
