Cleveland Model Airplane Course Kit II - 3 Powered Balsa Flying Model Kits, MACII

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

This is kit number two of the famous Model Airplane course. It contains three rubber powered stick models. These kits served to introduce the fun and art of real flying models to thousands of boys. 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 operating single-owner 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.

Comet New Interceptor Gas Model By Carl Goldberg - Free Flight Class 'A' or 'B'

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

Sold   

Rare kit from 1946. NOTE: this is a builder kit only, please read carefully. This is a (very young) Carl Goldberg design for Class 'A' or 'B' and is designed to climb very quickly then go into a long, flat glide for maximum duration and 'sniffing thermals.' Includes tissue paper, three pages of large plans with directions, Carl's very detailed 'How to Adjust and Fly the New Interceptor' booklet, decals, hardware, nose strut, nose wheel and more. NOTE: this kit has some assembly. It is very neatly done and is flat and straight. The basic fuselage, stabilizer and three inner wing panels have been built. The stabilizer is near mint and has been sanded and is almost ready to cover. The wing sections are well built but have damage that will have to be repaired. The fuselage is very solid and only the firewall support needs to be fixed. The other parts have been very neatly cut out. All other balsa parts are present except three small parts: missing {2} I2 and {1} R2; they are easily duplicated because they are on the plans full size. Part M8 replaces M7 in the instructions and is present. Will be shipped in a large box since the fuselage does not fit into the model box. Model box top does not have ends; I assume it did at one time. Model will be packed very carefully in a large box to avoid any further damage.
