Cleveland Ryan FR-1 Fireball - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-92

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$95   

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. 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 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 'Aviation's 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.

Bergs Bergs Humming Bird Helicopter - Flyes / Glides / Circles

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$59   

Rare flying toy, most likely from the late 1940s or the the early 1950s. The original price was $3.00, which made it very expensive for that time. Berg's Humming Bird was made in "Allied Western Germany" and distributed by Josef Seidel of 878 Broadway, NY 3, NY. This is a flying helicopter that is completely prefabricated and consists of a very lightweight metle body with rubber wheels, a large completely-assembled rotor assembly with metal rotor head and frames with the blades covered in silver doped tissue, a heavy launching rod with a metal threaded rod and coupler and wooden handle painted red. The Instructions are present and it is a simple matter of placing the rotor assembly into the body, then putting the launching device underneath where it engages the rotor head. Then a quick pull on the upper handle sets the rotors spinning and up she goes! The model is 100% complete with all parts and illustrated instructions. Judging from the condition, it has never been flown.

Irwin Sikorsky Helicopter With Gyro Friction Motor, 692

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$35   

From 1953. The Irwin Company ("One Of The World's Largest Toy Manufacturers") decided to sell one of their toys as an unassembled kit in 1953. They may have been prompted by the success of the Gowland & Gowland Highway Pioneers, or perhaps they were simply had forward-looking leadership. This large scale model is made from color and factory painted plastic and can be assembled with regular wheels for a more 'scale' appearance or with the factory-built 'gyro friction motor' which turns the main rotor while taxing the helicopter along the ground. Features large fuselage that is 15" and molded in dark navy blue with factory painted silver sections, painted pilot figure, clear nose bubble, 17" rotor blade, (1) yello stretcher, 'scale' rubber wheels with metal axle, gyro-friction motor unit with all linkage and rubber wheels, yellow boarding ladder, the small plastic and metal hardware parts in the original box and decals.

Very rare and the larges, most detailed kit ever made of this stunning ship. Museum quality craftsman model in large scale. Features hardwood, kiln-dried, factory-carved hull, hardwood factory-carved superstructure, extensive high quality cast Britannia fittings and other hardwood and metal parts as required. Includes very detailed full size plans and text instruction booklet. The kit has never been started. The fittings are all still in the factory sealed bags. The parts that were never factory sealed (hull, wood and metal stock) have been inventoried complete. Includes all paperwork. NS Savannah was the first nuclear-powered merchant ship. She launched on July 21, 1959. The total cost was $46.9 million which including a $28.3 million nuclear fuel reactor. Funding was from United States government agencies. Savannah was a demonstration project for the potential use of peaceful nuclear energy. The ship was named after the first steamship to cross the Atlantic ocean, the SS Savannah. She was in service between 1962 and 1972 as one of only four nuclear-powered cargo ships ever built. Savannah was deactivated in 1971 and after several moves has been moored at Pier 13 of the Canton Marine Terminal in Baltimore, Maryland, since 2008. Fortunately, she is being restored as a museum ship and some tours are available with special arrangements. I was fortunate enough to tour the ship when she was docked at Patriots Point, South Carolina back in the early 1990s. Much of the interior was in such poor condition that the museum had locked or disabled all doors leading into the ship so that visitors were restricted to the outside only. Leaving portholes open to staterooms and general lack of funds to keep the ship lead to the neglect.

The Wickes-class destroyers were a successful class of 111 destroyers built between 1917�19. Along with the 6 preceding Caldwell class and 156 of the very similar Clemson class destroyers, they were commonly known as "flush-deck" or "four-stackers". Although built very quickly (some set a record, like the USS Ward), only a few were completed in time to serve in World War I, including USS Wickes, the lead ship of the class. These Four Stackers saw a great deal of service; the Ward fired the opening shots of WWII and the Ruben James was the first US ship sunk. After the transfer of many of these ships to the British (who were terribly short on destroyers), one of the Lend-Lease ships, USS Buchanan became the HMS Campbeltown which rammed and destroyed the French docks that were big enough to repair the Bismarck class battleships.
