Airfix Henschel Hs-123 - Type 3 Logo - Bagged, 1/72, 136

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

$18   

Still factory sealed. 1960s bagged kit with header. The Hs-123 was the Luftwaffe's first in- service dive bomber and was built by the famous locomotive maker Henschel. The '123 had been replaced by the start of WWII by the Stuka, but demand continued for the aircraft and they were of great use in Belgium and France. During the terrible weather of the Russian campaign, the HS-123 once again found itself in demand. When conditions were so bad that other aircraft could not fly, the Hs-123 would often be in the air. The sturdy construction and good flying characteristics made it a favorite among pilots.

Rest Models Heinkel He-112 V6 Kanonenvogel Spanish Civil War Ground Attack Aircraft, 1/48, RM4809

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$199   

Very, very rare, superb model and the only kit of this subject in any scale. Features very highly detailed cockpit, excellent landing gear and detailed wells, separately molded ailerons, wing flaps and rudder, optional opened or closed cockpit hatch, painting guide and full Condor Legion markings. The kit consists of very finely cast parts in high definition resin with recessed panel lines, many PE parts and film instruments. The fuselage is cast in one part with the opening for the fuselage where the wing goes. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. He-112 Prototype V6 had a fascinating history during the Spanish Civil War. It was specially modified with a 20mm cannon firing through the screw axis. It was initially flown by 'private' Luftwaffe pilots and saw significant action. However, Wilhelm Balthasar destroyed an armored train with the V6 on March 16, 1937. The fact that made this amazing is the Balthasar was an observer in an He-45C. When he knew of the attack, he convinced the commander that he was an expert pilot and begged to take the V6 up to attack the train. On his way back he destroyed a tank and won an award for his efforts. He was later appointed commander of an experimental department consisting of three He-45C and the one He-112V6. The task of this unit was recon, artillery spotting and ground attack. During these flights the V6 destroyed more tanks and was very successful.

Cleveland Playboy Senior Class C Gas Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, GP-5017

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$225   

70 inch wingspan class 'C' gas free-flight model airplane. Cleveland entered the 1930s gas model market with the famous Playboy series. The design is so solid and popular that it is still a favorite at meets today (Like SAM - Society of Antique Modelers) where free-flight competitions are still held. Cleveland was late to introduce these kits (1939), but they wanted to ensure that the quality and performance was there. It appears that there were three aircraft in the Playboy line - the Baby, Junior and Senior. The model has not been started and is in exceptional condition. Whoever buys it will be the second owner; the first lives in town with me. The parts are inventoried 100% complete and includes covering tissue and 'excellent' never-used plans. Please NOTE: that there is some bug damage to the issue paper and very tiny bit to the edge of the plans. 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.
