Cleveland Great Lakes Trainer Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, M-1

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

This is a Cleveland Scale Flying model in the standard 1/16 museum scale. 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, two colors of covering material, highest quality plans and all parts required for assembly. 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.

Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998. When sales sagged, Comet's response was the easier to build Struct-O-Speed series with a significant amount of prefabrication that dramatically reduced assembly time. Light and well designed, these kits flew well. Kit features balsa sheet construction, detailed full size plans, building instructions, hardware, wheels and canopy material (if required), tissue and propeller. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.
