Cleveland Messerschmitt Me-109 (Bf-109) Master Kit With Joe Ott Idento-Plane Sheets - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-74

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor+

$69   

This is a Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. All Cleveland kits were exceptionally complete and this one is no exception. Features very high quality balsa printwood and strip wood, precarved wheels, thrust button and rubber motor retainer, factory-drilled nose block, covering material, highest quality plans and insignia. The model has not been started. The parts have been inventoried 100% complete with instructions. NOTE: the plans are fully usable but have bug damage. The insignia and covering tissue have bug damage also. The wood is undamaged. This is wartime issue so there are no paints and no glue included. The box is intact but has so much clear tape on it and other damage that it is graded 'poor+.' Also includes several used/partial and one unused sheet of Joe Ott WWII profile Idento-Planes. 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.

Monogram Artorama The Zebras African Animal Group, CR101

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$100   

This kit was found in the stock room of a long-closed hobby shop and is in factory-new condition. From the original Monogram "Four Star" line. Hardbox is dated 1961. Very large and rare injection molded craft kit. Contains 9.75 inch by 7.75 inch frame - colorful pre-painted 3D Display - frame trim - injection molded Zebras and foliage - paint, two paint brushes and instructions with a small Artorama catalog. Scale unknown. The complete series consisted of three kits - the Lions, Giraffes and the Zebras. The kits are superbly done, but it is likely that the high cost ($2.98 in 1961) kept them from achieving high sales. Never started. 100% inventoried complete with all parts, paint, brushes and instructions present. This peaceful family scene is clearly on a good day, as Discoverwildlife.com reports: "Zebras have very different temperaments to horses. They're far more aggressive and a lot more dangerous. Zebras have been known to kick each other to death."
