Cleveland Ryan Navion Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-107

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

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 insignia (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) and 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 this time. Some of these models flew and flew well, but they all had one thing in common - they 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-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.

Pyro Chevrolet 1932 Cabriolet, 1/32, C291-60

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Late 1960s Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of its kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. This model is very nicely molded with very good detail featuring full underside and chassis, spoked wheels and complete interior. Molded in gloss blue and clear. The box states that it can be converted to a 'road racing' or slot car. Never started. Inventoried complete with all parts and instructions.

The hand cranked gun stayed in production until 1911 and was first used during the US Civil War at the siege of Petersburg, Virginia.

Hillcrest 1910 Curtiss Pusher Model A, 1/48

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Old and rare kit from 1952. When most kits were wood, Hillcrest has to put 'Prefabricated Parts' on the cover to distinguish it from other models of the time. The kit has injection molded main parts in the frame of the actual aircraft. The small cello bag is still sealed and contains cast metal details such as the engine and tank, the clear molded wheel disks and a small envelope of plastic cement that you could mix to acetone. This was included because back then you simply could not by cement that would glue plastic models together. The instructions have a very nice three view drawing, parts diagram and written instructions. Never started. Factory sealed bag and inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. The Curtiss Pusher Model A was designed and flown by Glenn Curtiss. This aircraft made a record-breaking flight from Albany to New York, giving millions of New Yorkers their first look at a flying machine. Later, with a larger 100HP V-8 engine, it won the world speed record at the first French International Air Meet. Additionally, it was the first aircraft to land and take off of a carrier.
