Sterling L-19 Bird Dog - 17 inch Wingspan CL/Rubber Powered Kit that Drops Leaflets in Flight, A12-98

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

Sold   

Still factory sealed. From the mid 1960s. 17 inch wingspan kit for rubber free flight or control line. Features an innovative system for dropping leaflets in flight. Includes quality die-cut balsa sheet parts, strip wood and spars, light plastic full engine cowl and other parts, die-cut clear windscreen, fully formed wire landing gear struts, finished main and tail wheels, rubber motor and plastic prop, covering tissue, a big sheet of full color decal and full size plans with excellent instructions. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits compared to other manufacturers.

Cleveland Globe Swift - 30 Inch Wingspan Balsa Flying Aircraft, IT-96

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

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, cut nose block, finished thrust button, main & tail wheels, carved prop blank, clear for windshield and more. The model has not been started. 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, 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.

ESCI TWO Hanomag Sk.Kfz. 251/1 / Pz.Kpfw.II Ausf F / TWO WESPE 105mm Self Propelled Howitzer, 1/72, 8002

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

SALE!! Includes all 5 kits in the three boxes shown with decals and instructions. NOTE: Sold AS-IS and not inventoried. This collector was very meticulous and of his kits that I did inventory, 95% are complete. But he cut the sprue (trees) with the part numbers still attached to each number, so the parts are loose. Because of that, I have not inventoried these kits. NOTE: he very neatly built minor to major sub assemblies to "excellent++ to professional" quality. Most are minor, but occasionally there is major assembly. Again, these kits are sold not inventoried and AS IS hence the very low price.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Rare 1955 issue in the 'Picture Gallery' series. The dramatic scene shows Javelins intercepting IL-38 Bison bombers. Some Sparrow-like missiles are clearly missing (ground clutter perhaps?) while another blows the wings forward on the uppermost Bison. This series was done before Bill Campbell started doing the artwork for Hawk. The current artist fell ill and Bill took over - hence the limited PG issues. Very nicely molded kit for the day with decals for WT946. Features full landing gear and 6 air to air missiles. The parts are the correct light silver plastic with the interesting transparent light green stand, stand arm and canopy. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.
