Master Modelcraft Supply Co Douglas A-20A Boston / Havoc, 1/48

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$34   

From about 1943 - certainly a wartime issue from the 'We are in a fight to WIN!' drawing on the instructions and an urging to buy war bonds. This is a deluxe solid wood model in big quarter scale. Features beautiful completely finished hardwood fuselage, two cut-to-shape balsa wings with rough airfoils already formed, profile cut balsa nacelles and tail feathers, two cast metal three-blade propellers, fully formed wheels, wood stock as necessary, tinted celluloid for canopies (not printed), sand paper, full color insignia, factory glass bottles of glue and dope and very large full-size plans that include stabilizer and wing dihedral gauges, cross sections, aircraft description and spec and even text instructions. Never started and complete. Box top is complete but has closed edge splits. Master Modelcraft Supply Company made wooden model aircraft and ships and listed their address as N.Y. 66, New York during the early 1950s.

Aurora The Moon Bus from 2001 A Space Odyssey, 1/55, 829-250

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$115   

Original 1969 kit from the famous movie. Not the common reproduction. Well detailed kit features full interior with cockpit and removable top. Molded in the correct gray, light green and clear. The kit has never been started. The parts that were in factory sealed bags (light green) are still factory sealed. The gray and clear parts were never factory sealed and have been inventoried complete. With decals and 'excellent' instructions. The box displays better than the 'good-' grade but is graded as such because there is a 4 inch closed split at top right and a crease as shown. All corners are solid and it has very nice color and gloss, but there is general wear.

Cleveland Grumman F6F-3 Hellcat - (F6F3) Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-97

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$155   

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 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.

The six versions are Stock (Four Barrel Carburetor, Chevrolet stock intake manifold, valve covers, exhaust manifold and distributor, Street (with Edelbrock Intake, Hedman Exhaust Headers, three Stromberg 97 Carburetors and three chrome air cleaners), Road and Track (Weiand Intake Manifold, six Stromberg 97 Carburetors, Scintilla Vertex Magneto and hetman headers), Dragstrip (Cragar Intake Manifold, GMC 4-71 Supercharger, Cragar Carburetor Adapter Plate, four barrel carburetors, Cragar Supercharger Drive Unit, Tuned Exhaust, Scintilla Magneto, finned chromed rocker covers, Cragar drive pulley and belt), Racing (Hilborn Fuel injection manifold, Intake Stacks, Scintilla Magneto, finned rocker covers and tuned exhaust), All-Out Competition (Potvin Intake Manifold, Potvin Intake Pipes, GMC 4-71 Supercharger, Potvin Pipe Adapter, Scintilla Magneto and tuned exhausts). The kit has many working features - A crank at the back of the transmission turns the crankshaft and moves the two pistons and connecting rods up and down within clear piston sleeves. The pistons are visible through a clear engine block section. Crank pulley also turns the fly wheel, pressure plate and the front drive belt, which moves the water pump and the generator. The belt also turns the GMC 4-71 Supercharger, which has moving internal vanes visible through a clear plastic cover. The transmission shifter can be moved through the 'H' pattern. The model is molded in multiple colors so that painting is not required - molded in Chevrolet Orange (red), black, silver, chrome and clear. The kit has never been started. NOTE: missing two simple parts, #33 shaft (simple cylindrical shaft with a notched key at the end) and #87 (one of two; other present. It is the magneto base which is a simple circle on a shaft, easily made.) Otherwise inventoried with all other parts present. NOTE: the instructions are present and usable; I inventoried the kit with them. But they are very badly bug eaten and only good for assembly. The booklet 'Customizing The Chevrolet V-8 Automobile Engine' is missing. NOTE the box looks better than it is. There is a hole, a big 4 inch closed tear, a closed tear along much of the lower long side panel, all four corners are clear taped - I give the box top a 'fair-.' The bottom box (tray) is all present but is 'poor' with numerous closed tears and tape - very, very tattered.

Revell Lockheed F-94C Starfire Interceptor - With One Piece Stand Arm - Pre 'S' Kit, 1/56, H210-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$175   

1954 Pre-S issue. This is the rare second issue. The first issue was in the simple one-piece box and Revell quickly converted to this two-piece box as it was much more durable and a full-color lithographed 'slick' could be used. For the second issue, Revell added rivet and raised panel line detail as well as landing gear, a two piece box and H210-79 kit number. The famous 'Globe' clear stand was added, but this kit has the rare one piece stand arm and the instructions reflecting that. Revell quickly realized that the one-piece arm was not strong enough, and quickly modified it to the familiar three piece arm for the 3rd issue. The box is in very good++ condition with four solid corners, nice color and gloss and minimal wear with minor insect damage on the corners of one short side. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Decals and instructions are in near mint condition. The original small parts 'krinkle' bag is present as well.
