Frog Douglas DC-7C BOAC - Lines Brothers New Zealand Issue, 1/96, F351

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Very rare. 1950s one piece issue from New Zealand. On the side panel of the box it says 'Frog - Made in New Zealand - A Product of Lines Bros (N.Z.) Ltd.' Very close to 1/100 scale and still the largest injection molded DC-7 kit. Nicely molded with very fine raised panel line detail and recessed control surfaces and doors. The box has very good color. Inside, the kit has never been assembled. The very long decal sheet is intact and excellent. The decals have not rolled and have little of the typical yellowing. The decals are labeled 'Quality Transfer Co. (N.Z.) Ltd Wellington - Auckland - Christchurch'. The instructions are excellent with light yellowing and have no tears or writing - they are also labeled 'Made in N.Z'. The kit is molded in the correct gloss silver and clear plastic with a large dark blue stand. The kit has never been started. The DC-7 has been inventoried complete with all parts. The propellers are on the original cardboard holder and the blades are not broken. NOTE: the stand base and two stand arms halves are present, but the small top swivel part is missing. This can be taken from any Frog kit with the large stand as it is not unique to this kit. Shipping insurance is required on this model.

Hudson Miniatures 1909 Ford Model T Touring Car, 1/16

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Early multi-media kit of wood, metal and plastic dated 1949 on the box. Large 1/16 scale kit measures 8 inches long when built. Very nicely detailed with all the complicated parts cast in yellow, light tan or ivory injection molded plastic. Includes full size plans and instructions. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Hudson Miniatures created a very successful and popular line of automobile kits in a constant 1/16 scale shortly after WWII. The kits sold very well until the appearance of the much smaller and less scale Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' in 1951. When the all-injection molded Gowland kits proved that they were not a passing fad, Hudson quickly planned and released his own small scale competition for them called 'Lil' Old Timers Quickie Kits'. The kits were of excellent quality, but it was too little too late. Sales of wooden kits faltered in the next few years with the introduction of all-plastic injection molded cars in the mid 1950s. This forced Hudson to discontinue both lines. Today, these excellent kits are often the only large-scale models available of these early automobiles.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+++

Rare gift set from 1955. Revell gift sets were only issued around the holidays, and for very few years. This one has a very good hardbox with some wear as shown and four solid corners. The box includes all three pistols in actual size and includes three wall display brackets as well. The kit has not been started. Inside, it is in fantastic condition. The blue cardboard display is intact and near mint. The tube of 'S' cement and both paints are intact and have never been opened. The Derringer and Colt are still in the factory sealed krinkle bags. The Pepperbox was still sealed but the 'krinkle' bag had a split. So I inventoried the kit, and it is complete. I have included the original split krinkle bag.

Cleveland Travel-Air Mystery Ship Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-2

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

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 decals (if issued with the kit). The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or 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 running single-owner (77 years) 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.
