Cleveland Messerschmitt Me-109 (Bf-109) Master Kit With Joe Ott Idento-Plane Sheets - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-74

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor+

$69   

This is a Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. All Cleveland kits were exceptionally complete and this one is no exception. Features very high quality balsa printwood and strip wood, precarved wheels, thrust button and rubber motor retainer, factory-drilled nose block, covering material, highest quality plans and insignia. The model has not been started. The parts have been inventoried 100% complete with instructions. NOTE: the plans are fully usable but have bug damage. The insignia and covering tissue have bug damage also. The wood is undamaged. This is wartime issue so there are no paints and no glue included. The box is intact but has so much clear tape on it and other damage that it is graded 'poor+.' Also includes several used/partial and one unused sheet of Joe Ott WWII profile Idento-Planes. 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.

Condor Messerschmitt Me-163A, 1/72, C72002

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed

$28   

This is the prototype of the Me-163B Komet. The Me-163A was derived from Dr. Lippisch DFS tail-less gliders. These were seen as ideal platforms for the new rocket engines being developed. Tail-less DFS designed continued to fly, but now with pusher propeller engines installed. All went well, so the DFS team was moved to Messerschmitt to build the 163A. After gliding test, powered test were held in which new airspeed records were set. Work quickly moved to the production Me-163B Komet. Still factory sealed.

Pyro IJN Musashi Battleship - Table Top Navy, 1/1200, C392-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$22   

Small scale ship kit from the Table Top Navy series. Very nicely done kits for their time. Can be built full hull or waterline. Features propeller and shaft detail, separately molded turrets, stacks, many superstructure parts and more. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and instructions. Many of the Pyro kits came from Eagle (then Eaglewall) molds in England. Eaglewall went out of business around 1962 and Pyro acquired at least some of the molds. Pyro reissued some of these kits in the mid 1960s with AJ Rudisill artwork. Evidently the line was successful, as Pyro then cut some of their own molds and expanded the series significantly. The earlier issues have the full color artwork and a three digit part number. Later issues have a 'B' or 'C' in front of the three digit kit number; some have simplified box art that is a modification of the original Rudisill paintings by painting out most of the background. Pyro issued these kits into the late 1960 when Life-Like took over the molds. Some were reissued by Life-Like.
