Airmodel Mig-21 E-8A Prototype - Bagged, 1/72, AM-099

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

The Mig-21F was a successful warplane, but it suffered from short range, weak armament and electronics and poor dogfight maneuverability. Mikoyan OKB attempted to improve the F with two prototypes - the E-8A and E-7. The E-7 was similar to the existing Mig-21, but the E-8A was radically different and was intended to solve all the shortcomings of the existing "F" variant. The result was a beautiful aircraft. The central air intake freed up the nose for electronics, while the lower fuselage allowed more internal fuel storage. Forward canards were to add to the dog fighting maneuverability. Why the E-8 did not work or was not built is not known. Very nicely done multimedia kit. The model contains resin parts and basic vac airframe parts. The vac parts are excellent and are better than many injection molded kits. Resin parts include struts, wheels, nose gear and wheel, seat, cockpit, gear doors, canards and many other misc parts. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

Berkeley is a very famous manufacturer of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.

Cleveland DeHavilland Comet Racer Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/24, D-51

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

Sold   

This is a Cleveland 'D' or dwarf kit. The term 'Dwarf' is deceptive here. Most Cleveland kits were designated 'SF' or Scale Flying - 1/16 scale. The Dwarf kits were needed to fill a market demand for smaller flying models - especially of the larger aircraft. The 'D' kits, like this Comet, are 1/24. 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 operating single-owner 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.
