Cleveland Grumman TBF-1 Avenger Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-93

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.

Bandai Star Trek Sovereign-Class Starship USS Enterprise NCC-1701-E, 1/1700, 0116424-7500

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

Sold   

This is an amazing kit, please read carefully. All parts are precision and professionally painted. All hull shading, markings and details are perfectly duplicated. All markings (example: NCC-1701E) are all painted also. The paint job is flawless and stunning. Below is a detailed photo of just one of the dozens of factory painted parts . The hull windows, bridge, deflector and warp engines are lit internally with the included lighting kit. The amazing part is that the model is not just a light up but was actually designed from the ground up to be lit, so it has the following features: parts are molded in black plastic or have the inside surfaces painted so there is no light bleed through - there are numerous clear plastic light diffusers so the lighting is distributed evenly for a perfect effect. Where special effects are needed with lighting, such as the warp engines or navigational deflector, the pattern is molded into the clear piece and if needed, the clear is tinted blue, etc for the proper effect. The base holds the batteries. All parts are very carefully factory sealed so there are no scratches. The assembled model is 16 inches long. Never started. All items in original factory sealed. Complete.
