The Fa 223 can claim to be the world's first successful operating production helicopter (along with the FL-283). Professor Focke's 1937 helicopter was very successful; his follow on was the Fa 223. The type was accepted into production after extensive testing and deliveries were to made in 1944.

Fred Pastorius Three Lockheed 1049 Super G Constellation Promotional Air Line Model - One TWA and two Pan Am Clipper 'Los Angeles' - Bagged, 1/490

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box

Sold   

From the 1950s. Back when air travel was still an event, gift shops would sell small airplane models and major and minor airlines would give out small models to customers as promotional items. These three Super G Constellations are very finely molded with all recessed details. They are each 2.75 inches long. Two were originally Pan Am and have the clipper name 'Los Angeles' on the left wing. Both of the Pan Am models are excellent - they have never been broken, repaired or painted. The other is TWA and it has been broken and repaired on the elevator and twice on the wing. All parts are present, however. I used to think these were made by Hawk, but Dan Dill reports that they were made during the 50s and maybe the early 60s by TWA Captain Fred Pastorius in Oceanside, CA. Fred was an artist and produced several different models in this scale, mostly for TWA but a few other airlines and models also. Dan writes- 'Fred made these in his garage and they were sold at airport gift shops. There was no packaging as I recall; they were just sold loose in a small cardboard box of maybe twenty or so at a time. My father was a friend of Fred's and would fly with him once in awhile and always bring a few of them home for my brothers and me. I still have about twenty of them. Fred made model 749, 1049 and 1649 constellations and Martin 404s. He also made a TWA Boeing 707-131 with a plastic stand. It came wrapped in cellophane. His models were mostly TWA but I have learned he did make some others special order with other airline names etched on the wing. Fred also made gold plated models inside clear plastic bubbles with names etched on the clear plastic for gifts. My father had one made for my grandfather, which I still have.' Thank you Dan!!

Cleveland Boeing P-26A Peashooter Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-60

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.
