Delta S-55 X Savoia Marchetti (S.55), 1/72

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

This is the issue with color box art and booklet. Rare early Italian issue with the excellent 34 page heavily illustrated reference book including color profiles and cutaway views. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The first aircraft to fly across the Atlantic in formation. The S-55 was a unique aircraft with the passenger compartments in the floats and the cockpit in the wing; the two engines are mounted in tandem push/pull above the cockpit. The S-55 proved to be very reliable and airworthy, setting 14 world records for speed, altitude and distance with a payload. Three months before Lindbergh's solo Atlantic flight, and S-55 flew with stops from Italy to Rio and NY City. In 1933 Marshal Balbo led 25 S-55s to Chicago in about 48 hours. He then flew back without incident.

Guillows Hawker Typhoon M.E. - 18 inch Wingspan Rubber Powered Flying Model, 906-130

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

Roughly 1980s scale stick and tissue rubber powered flying model. Includes die cut balsa parts, vacuform nose/spinner, wheels, plastic propeller, hardware, vacuform canopy, colored tissue, insignia and full size plans with detailed building instructions. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Guillow's founder, Paul K. Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.

Hand-Made U-Control (Control Line) Aircraft - Never Flown

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

This dated from the early to mid 1960s and was in a collection of incredibly well build stick & tissue and solid models. This is not store bought but is a home-made flying model. It has a 24 inch wingspan and is 18 inches long. The model is very, very durable. I do not know what it is made of, but it's so tough that you can't poke a hole in it with your finger. It is not plastic - I tend to think it has a balsa fuselage and balsa or sheeted wings. The wing and stabilizer have a beautiful airfoil, and the fuselage is perfectly symmetrical. The gas tank is built into the fuselage and has brass fill and vent tubes. The engine mount is carved out of solid wood and even includes three of four mounting screws and washers. The elevator controls are metal and work perfectly. The landing gear is strong spring steel and the wheels spin freely. They are held in place on the front and back by soldered brass washers. The paint job was done by hand and is fantastic. If you install and engine, she is ready to fly or display.

Cleveland Mile Fliers The Flying Dutchman Amphibian - Skystick Style Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, C-5

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Early World War II kit. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or 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 operating single-owner 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.
