Cleveland Fokker D-7 - 20.5 Inch Wingspan Balsa Scale Flying Aircraft (DVII), 1/16, M-15

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$80   

True-scale flying model from 1948 and one of the famous Cleveland kits in the agreed museum scale of 1/16. Features many sheets of high quality printwood, factory cut stringers and spars, partially carved nose block / radiator, other wood blocks as required, fully formed wheels, thrust button and propeller hub, metal and wood stock, complete insignia sheet and covering tissue. Includes the superb Cleveland plans & instructions. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts and paperwork. 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.

UPC M-40 155mm Self-Propelled Gun - (ex Adams), 1/40, 2151-250

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$55   

Universal Powermaster's 2nd reissue of the 1957 Adams 'Action Model' that is amazingly well detailed for that time. Features rotating, elevating and recoiling gun, working track and hatches, hinged platform that opens and closes, working extension ramp, crew and much more. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bag and includes decals and instructions. This kit has a fascinating history. After Adams became disillusioned with plastic model kit production (perhaps partially due to interaction with Revell's founder), they sold most if not all of the molds to Athearn, the famous craftsman HO train kit manufacturer. Athearn reissued many of the kits under the SNAP name. This name sometimes caused confusion. Many people thought they were snap-together kits; they couldn't have been more wrong. Athearn did a simple modification to each mold; where it would say ADAMS (usually on a part or area that did not show), they machined that away and put the SNAP logo. At some point Athearn stopped production and eventually sold the molds. However, during this time in the 1960s, UPC decided to reissue many of these kits. Evidently Athearn did the molding or a job shop did, while UPC produced their own boxes, instructions and decals. 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 (many in Japan) 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. However, the famous Roy Grinnell did the 2nd issue UPC artwork for the ex-Adams AA Gun, M-40 (this kit) and perhaps others. All UPC production ended in the 1970s. NOTE: instructions are SNAP instructions. I have seen this before and evidently UPC used up Athearn's stock of instructions in their kits. Given the cost of printing back then, this would have been a wise move.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$164   

Rare one-and-only 1960 issue that contains both the DH-4 and Curtis JN-4 Jenny.

Instructions are both in 'excellent+' condition and the decal sheets are both completely flat (no rolling) with typical age yellowing as the only flaw.

Lindberg Landing Ship Tank LST Motorized, 1/250, 725M-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$145   

Rare 1950s hardbox issue with dramatic Ray Gaedke artwork. This is a well detailed larger scale kit that features an electric motor and hardware for water operation, one-piece hull, detailed deck and superstructure & more. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The box has superb color and gloss. It would rate higher than 'excellent' but is rated as such because there is one closed split on one corner at the lower left. This model has a fascinating history. It was originally produced by Varney in 1944. It was novel at the time as it had a wooden hull, cardstock deck but the deck fittings, superstructure and other details were injection molded tenite. When the early Varney aircraft and ship kits did not sell well, Gorden Varney sold the molds for the kit to O-lin (Olsen and Lindberg). O-Lin reworked the kit using a vacuform hull, cardstock deck, metal railings and tenite parts. When Lindberg took full control of O-lin, he modified the molds for a third time so the kit has metal railings but all other parts are injection molded. In the fourth and final modification (this kit), all parts are injection molded plastic.

Cleveland 1934 Turners Wedell-Williams Racer - Free-Flight Rubber Powered Flying Aircraft, 1/24, D-48

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$75   

Very rare 1930s issue that is even rarer in amazing 'excellent' condition box and 'tissue sealed' inside. This is a Cleveland 'D' or dwarf kit. The term 'Dwarf' is just a bit deceptive, as it is Cleveland's designation for 1/24 scale. Most Cleveland kits were designated 'SF' or Scale Flying - 1/16 scale. The Dwarf kits were needed to fill a market demand for smaller flying models. All Cleveland kits were exceptionally complete and Dwarfs were no exception, containing very high quality balsa printwood, stringers & spars, fully formed wheels, covering tissue, a wood propeller that is about 90% carved and just needs final sanding, gray rigging thread (if required), metal and balsa stock as required and more. With Cleveland's famous high-quality plans. Amazingly, this kit is still 'factory tissue sealed' inside. When the Cleveland workers packed each kit, they wrapped them in tissue that effectively made a seal which has not been disturbed. Whoever buys it will be the first one to see the contents since it was packed in the factory over 90 years ago. 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.
