Contrail A.V. Roe Manchester, 1/72

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++


The Manchester was an RAF bomber which entered service in November of 1940 with 207th Squadron. The design was sound but the Vulture engines were troublesome. Engine failures, fires and unserviceability made it unpopular with crews. AV Roe was quick to solve this problem and wasted no time in replacing the Vulture with the Merlin - creating the Manchester Mk III - the prototype Lancaster. Main vac airframe parts with clear parts and injection molded details. Comes with full decals. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Experience with vacuform kits is highly recommended.

Please read carefully - this is builder kit and is not complete. Large true scale model of wood and metal. Features a beautifully pre-carved hardwood hull and two large sheets of plans - one for standing and running rigging and one for assembly including detail drawing, parts identification and hull profiles. The kit has never been started. NOTE: the kit is missing parts. Here is what is present - the precarved hull, masts and spars and much if not all of the wood material required, both plans sheets, all standing and running rigging material, all required gun ports (10), tiny nails, bitts (fore brace, topsail sheet, riding, after gallows and fore gallows) and metal wire. That is what is present. It is difficult to determine what is missing, but it is primarily if not exclusively more metal fittings. I do not see the capstan, deck vents, cannon or anything beyond what is detailed above. Luckily, these are standard fittings and can be purchased on-line from any number of ship fittings suppliers.

Cleveland Supermarine Spitfire Mk.II Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-73

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


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 Bleriots 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. Lindberghs 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 Lindberghs 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 worlds 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 Aviations great Recruiter Clevelands 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.
