Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Liner SS America / Troop Ship USS West Point / S.S. Australis - Wooden Ship Kit, 1/330, 605
Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Liner SS America / Troop Ship USS West Point / S.S. Australis - Wooden Ship Kit, 1/330, 605
Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc,   old
$750

Very rare. This is the finest example that I have ever seen of this rare kit. Large wooden and metal kit builds to just over 26 inches long. This model is of the SS America Ocean Liner, which was designed by the famous naval architect William Francis Gibbs. She was laid down in 1938 and entered service on August 22 1940 as the flagship of the United States Lines. World War II interrupted her passenger service. The ship was active through the war. She narrowly escaped being sunk off Singapore during the Japanese invasion. After the war she resumed her North Atlantic route. The liner was the pride of the US Merchant fleet before the USS United States was commissioned. When the 'Big U' entered service, the two liners were stable mates and often appeared in the same travel agency posters and prints. By 1964 aircraft had taken a large section of the ocean liner travelers away, and the America was sold to Chandris Group and was renamed the Australis. She sailed for 14 years in a very successful career and was the last liner to sail from Southampton to Australia/New Zealand. She was laid up on 1977. She changed owners several times, but was never again successful. While being towed to Thailand, the lines broke and she ran aground in the Canary Island, where the wreak broke up after time - but not before the locals rescued many items from the ship. The model box is excellent and the kit inside is in as-new condition. Kit features pre-carved hull, metal fittings, very large full size plans, print wood and heavy cardstock, clear material for windows, color flag sheet, building instructions with perspective views and rigging material and diagrams. Never started. I believe that I was the first one to remove the parts from the box when I performed the inventory. All of the fittings are still in factory sealed bags and the tissue packing material from the factory is still present. The kit is complete with all parts and plans. You can convert it to the USS West Point if you have photos of the ship (which are on the internet) - the main difference is the addition of lifeboats and different paint. Photos of the S.S. Australis will provide the needed data to convert her to that ship, but this conversion will require more work than the West Point.

Still factory sealed. Early issue in a hardbox with great artwork. Kit is of the earliest ships built by Yankee craftsman during the Revolutionary War. The ships were speedy and handled so well that the British copied a captured brig. They were well suited to commerce raiding but were not of the size and strength needed to take on Royal Navy units. Nicely molded small scale ship model. Includes full hull, display stand and billowing sails.

Older issue in the cardboard box with 'Cleveland World Famous Models' printed in silver. From the late 1930s/1940s. 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 Bleriots 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. Lindberghs 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 Lindberghs 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 worlds longest running single-owner (77 years) model airplane supply business 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 Clevelands 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.

Aurora Martin B-26 Marauder, 1/46, 371-259
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG,   old
$375

Very rare first issue from the early 1950s. When Aurora moved to the West Hempstead plant, they planned a series of very large scale bombers. All kits released up to this time had been small. Aurora's instincts were correct, and the B-26, B-25 and B-29 were a big sales success. This box art was done by Jim Cox and was only used for about one year, making it very rare. The kit has never been started and is inventoried 100% complete with the original tissue paper, all parts, large clear stand, instructions and decals.

Very rare kit for the advanced collector. In the early 1950s Best Hobby Kits (Best Plastic Corporation of Brooklyn, NY) entered the infant USA plastic model kit market with a series of Indianapolis 500 winners. Six kits were issued - the 1920 Monroe Special, 1922 Murphy Special, 1931 Miller Special, 1935 Gilmore Special, 1940 Maserati Racer and 1953 Fuel Injection Special. The kits were priced correctly and featured 'Super Detailed' parts (for the time). It is unknown why the line failed to sell - it may have been distribution. Best was certainly not a large player in the business. The kit features real rubber Firestone racing tires, decals and some interior detail. The kit has not been started. All parts are still in the original 'krinkle' bag. Complete with decals and instructions. NOTE: instructions are photocopied.

This is a Cleveland 'Master 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, precarved nose, completely formed wheels and thrust bearing, ready to use prop blades, celluoid, covering material, highest quality plans, instructions for static, free-flight or pylon flight with rubber or CO2 power. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

Strombecker Boeing B-47 Strato-Jet (Stratojet) - 12.5 inch Wingspan Solid Wooden Aircraft Kit, C-45
Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++,   old
$110

Classic large 12.5 inch wingspan kit. Made of solid, completely precarved Western Pine - not balsa. Builds up to an impressive display model. Kit includes fuselage, wings, elevators, engine pylons and engine nacelles all cut to shape, wood filler, cement mix, sandpaper, hardwood stand and stand arm. Large and very well detailed USAF decal sheet is very good to excellent condition. The kit has never been started. NOTE: missing rudder, but contains a drawn template in actual size of the rudder. This is an easy part to make from flat wood. Inventoried with all other parts, decals and instructions. Instructions are 'excellent'; even the Strombecker's Model-Makers Club application is intact. Before plastic kits were introduced, Strombecker was famous as the premier hardwood preshaped model manufacture. In the 1940s and 1950s, Strombecker kits were flawlessly engineered but not inexpensive. All wooden parts are hardwood and are precarved to shape - usually only sanding would finish them.
Aurora Black Knight of Nurnberg 1580 - Crown Issue, 1/8, K3-98
Aurora Black Knight of Nurnberg 1580 - Crown Issue, 1/8, K3-98
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++,   old
$185

In the mid 1950s, Crown Plastics advertised the release of a series of Knight models - some of the very first figure kits. However, before Crown entered production, Aurora marketed the line for Crown in 1956. The box side rectangular 'Northern Lights' Aurora logo has the 'Crown' logo incorporated into it, as does the logo on the instructions. The 'Crowns' were the first Aurora Knights ever issued, Aurora's very first figures kits, and Aurora gave them the kit numbers K1-98, K2-98 and K3-98. The knights sold well, and Aurora bought the three 'Knight' molds from Crown Plastics within the year. The kit is 100% correct down to the red and white plums. Inside, the plastic parts are mint. The kit has never been started. The gloss black plastic parts are still sealed in the factory bag. The instructions are correct with the Crown logo in the Aurora logo. The two plumes are in very good condition, which is rare.
