Cleveland 1930 Howard Pete Racer - Balsa Flying Aircraft, 1/16, SF18

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$125   

Dated 1933 on the plans. This model came from a long-time collector who purchased this model new in October of 1955 from Cleveland direct. It was even factory-packed with pages of the newspaper "Cleveland Plain Dealer" dated June 29, 1955. This is a '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, sheet wood, pre-drilled nose block, fully finished spinner, thrust button & wheels, metal stock, rigging material, completely formed prop blades, covering material, highest quality plans and more. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with everything present. 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 running single-owner (77 years) model airplane 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.

UPC Kawasaki Ki-61 Hien 'Tony' (ex-Fujimi), 1/70, 8016-49

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$16   

From older but quality Fujimi molds and with box art by Scott Eidson. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. UPC stood for Universal Powermaster Corporation which was based out of New York City, NY. UPC did not cut their own molds, but bought kits already molded from other manufacturers and re-boxed the kits in the USA. Scott Eidson, the famous artist best known for his artwork with Revell, also did UPC box art in the 1960s. All UPC production ended in the 1970s.

ITC SS France Ocean Liner - (Norway), 1/450, 3600-4-500

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$215   

Very rare. First and only issue from 1963; very shortly after this kit was issued, ITC discontinued all plastic kit production. Large 1/450 scale kit of one of the most beautiful ocean liners of all time. Features very good detail for the 1960s, full hull that is 24.75 inches long, 124 parts, 2 winged funnels, 3 anchors, 4 propellers, 2 launches, 20 lifeboats, 2 whaleboats, detailed mast, kingposts and superstructure. Inside, the model has never been started. The kit is molded in black (hull), red (funnels and fittings) and ivory (promenade and superstructure) to minimize painting (like in the ITC United States). Kit also includes a beautiful letter (with a color painting of the France on the letterhead) from Georges Croisile, the Commandant of the French Line, introducing the kit and welcoming you onboard the real France one day. The kit has never been started. The red parts are still sealed in the factory bags. The other parts had tears in the bags due to age, so I opened them and did an inventory - NOTE: missing one tiny part, a lifeboat davit. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts present. Decals, flag sheet and instructions are included.

Revell Lockheed ASW P-3A Orion, 1/115, H163-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$44   

Hardbox issue is copyright dated 1965. Purchased new on May 12, 1966 at S.S. Kresge Department Store in Cleveland, Ohio. The flaws in the Lockheed Electra airliner ensured that it had a short service life in commercial service. But the sound design was modified into one of the most successful and long-serving of all ASW aircraft - the Orion. Revell seized upon this opportunity to recoup some of the money sunk into the Electra molds. The molds were modified to make this kit, the 'A' version of the venerable patrol aircraft. Features optional position landing gear and loading door and movable wheels and props. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$80

The SR 'Singl Servo Carry' is still in the original factory clear bag and packing material. The OS Escapment is still in the factory clear bag and packing material. The other blue box is the original box and contains a Sankyo SR 2P large three wire servo - mint in the original clear plastic bag and factory packing material. The three 'Clunk Tanks' are all new in the box. I believe they are fuel bottles.

Other Materials,   Box Condition: VG+

$65   

Most likely from the late 1950s or very early 1960s. Includes all seven item in mint, NOS condition. Never used. The SR 'Singl Servo Carry' is still in the original factory clear bag and packing material. The OS Escapement is still in the factory clear bag and packing material. The other escapement box appears to contain an NOS receiver - that is my guess since it has a significant antenna. The Perfect gas tank is the #23 Long Senior Wedgetank with a 2 oz capacity; this is a soldered metal tank. The three 'Clunk Tanks' are all new in the box. I believe they are fuel bottles.

Air Lines Douglas A-20 Attack Bomber - (ex-Frog), 1/72, 9803

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$26   

From quality Frog molds. Box art is by the famous Jo Kotula who did 1930s covers for the magazine 'Model Airplane News' and later the Aurora box art of the late 1950s/early 1960s. Air Lines kits are all Frog molds that the Lines Brothers imported to the USA between 1964-1966. The kits, decals and instructions were made in England, then imported to the USA where Testors created the boxes with the colorful trading cards on the back. There are one or two 'box art' trading cards on each box. Molded in silver and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
