Lindberg Chesapeake Bay Skipjack Oyster Boat - (ex Pyro 'Carrie Price'), 1/60, 70850

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

From 1989. Beautiful sloop model from ex-Pyro molds which were originally cut in the early 1960s. Measures 12 inches long when assembled and an excellent kit for that time. Features full hull, optional position keel, optional position cabin and deck hatch if you wish to super-detail the insides, full deck fittings, two detailed small boats, railings and life rings, furled sails (as shown on box art)and rigging material with a rigging diagram. Never started. Factory sealed parts bag with instructions. The Skipjack 'Carrie Price' is an exact replica of a typical small sailing vessel used along the Chesapeake Bay area to dredge for oysters. The center keel stabilizer could be pulled up for working in very shallow water. Until 1942 sail was the only power permitted for oyster dredging; after 1942 the state passed a law allowing power boats to be used. This lead to many skipjacks being converted to power and having the main mast cut down. Although its days are past, many yachtsmen restore and sail this beautiful small craft today.

Airfix Avro Lancaster B.III Dam Buster, 1/72, 08004

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

Special 'Dam Buster' version. 1993 issue features 108 pieces and all the proper mods for the Dam Buster raid. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. This modified No. 617 Squadron aircraft includes the Wallis 'Bouncing Bomb' or mine for attacking German dams in WWII. The bomb was spun to 500 rpm, and the attack had to take place at exactly 220 mph at 60 feet above the water. The bomb would be released and would skip over the water to the dam wall, where it would roll down roughly 30 feet underwater. At this point, it would detonate. Given that water is incompressible, the blast could only go one place - through the incredibly thick concrete dam wall. As you can imagine, the raid was dangerous and 32 crew were decorated after the May 1943 mission.

Cleveland Beechcraft Bonanza - Balsa Flying Aircraft, 1/16, SF-108

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Rare. 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.

Western Allied Products San Francisco Cable Car, 1/32

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Very rare and dated 1946. This is a large, scale model of an early Cable Car and measures 11 inches long when assembled. Features fully factory cut hard-wood parts, beautiful routed passenger benches, perfectly die-cut cardstock clerestory roof pieces, wood stock as required, printed clear sheet for grates and decorative corner moldings, full decals and a superb sheet of full size plans that includes detailed text instructions. Although the kit comes with trucks that you assemble, it mentions that you can purchase some O Scale trucks to use on the model. That would work if you choose them carefully; however, the kit is 1/32 scale overall. Never started. Inventoried and NOTE: missing one round wooden wheel; the other 7 are present. Very easily made from flat round stock or cut from a sheet. Otherwise includes all other parts, decals, printed clear plastic and plans in 'excellent' condition. Western Allied Products Co. was located at 605 Old County Road, San Carlos California. It seems that they were probably making other items and decided to get into the model kit business, possibly because of the popularity of the Hudson Miniatures 1/16 scale kits. From the text on the instructions, it appears that this Cable Car is their first kit. It mentions that they were in the process of developing other kits and wanted to hear from modelers. However, no other Western Allied kits have been spotted to date.
