Monogram United States Earth Satellites Vanguard and Jupiter C - With Launching Pad and Crew, 1/96, PD41-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Very rare. First and only issue from 1958 with box art by R. Price. Very nicely detailed and molded in silver, gray and white plastic. Features missiles, launching pad with railings, ladders and crew of four. Never started. Decals are in "excellent++" condition with a tiny bit of yellowing as the only flaw. Instructions are "excellent" with slight yellowing, mainly on the front page. Inventoried complete with all parts, Monogram Missile Models insert sheet and small Monogram catalog. Please note that the box is only rated 'good' because there is general wear, isolated sections of heavy edge wear on the left side as shown and the long box sides are bowed out slightly. Shipping insurance is required on this kit. It is interesting to speculate on how this kit became one of the rarest 1950s Monogram kits. Although Monogram and Revell found that missile kits sold very well initially, the interest fell off rapidly. Even the molds for such a simple kit would have cost $20,000 to $30,000 in 1958 US Dollars - so obviously the kit did not sell well or it would have been continued. The main reason is probably that this kit is a very late Monogram missile, and was issued when interest was already waning. Whereas other missile kits (Missile Arsenal) were reworked and re-released, the Earth Satellites never were and are seen much less often than the Rascal and Regulus II.

Cleveland Curtiss P-40 Warhawk - Industrial Training Aircraft Kit - 36 Inch Wingspan, T-77

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Rare first issue from 1942. Big scale model features high-quality, full size plans with instructions, several sheets of excellent printwood, stripwood and spars, balsa stock and blocks as required, hardwood cylindrical stock for main gear struts, fully formed wood main wheels & thrust button, two sheets of color insignia and covering material. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and paperwork present. 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.
