Marx The Clipper Ship Swordfish - 'Marx Museum Quality Models', 1/96

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+++

Sold   

Rare and beautiful kit in the first issue, ornate box and no billowing sails. Imagine you are back in the mid 1950s. The only large sailing ship models available are made from wood and can take years to complete. It is still 6-7 years before Revell's 3 foot Cutty Sark is released. Louis Marx, the huge toy manufacture, saw that with the new injection molding processes that he could produce a masterpiece model of a large clipper ship that anyone could build. Marx spared no expense in their entry into the growing field of plastic models - this kit measures 33 inches long when assembled and has over 500 parts. The model claims to the first time that anyone could build a museum-quality large ship at home, and the claim is correct since this easily predates all larger plastic sailing ship kits by many years. Prior to this model, only wooden kits were available of this subject, which required a great deal of skill and craftsmanship. A great deal of thought went into the design of this large and complicated kit to make it easier to construct. Many colors of plastic are used (black, dark brown, tan and white) to minimize painting, while the deck was dealt with in an exceptional fashion - lithograph printed metal! The three main decks were tin lithographed, which means the decks are completely finished with all the detail of wood; boards are of different shades and divided by perfect, thin black lines. These decks are in excellent condition with only very light wear. This is the second or third issue of this kit, which contains the more realistic weathered teak color lithographed deck. The kit has never been started. All parts (except the factory assembled hull and billowing sails) are still in factory sealed bags. Also includes rigging materials, decals, flags and more. The instructions are a work of art themselves. They are a very large and well-produced affair with numerous photos of the assembled kit, enlarged drawings, detailing tips and rigging instructions. A beautiful kit! Another of Marx's rare ground-breaking kits is the large Chris Craft Constellation. It also has fantastic detail but suffered from a high price as did the Sea Witch. Due to pricing, sales were poor and the kits quickly faded as Marx dropped the plastic kit line completely.

Cleveland Supermarine S.6B (S-6B) Racer Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-19

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.

Strombecker Temco TT-1 Navy Primary Trainer, 1/48, D36-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

Rare kit in fantastic condition. The notoriously thin Strombecker box is in near mint condition. This model was unique in that a customer could lift the color 'Pin-Up' artwork to view the kit inside. The kit was still sealed with a clear cellophane glued to the inside of the box lid. Not only is the cellophane intact, but the pin up artwork has never been lifted. Color and gloss is like new. Strombecker was most famous for making the finest in wooden kits. During the short time that they made wooden kits, they released many interesting subjects that are desirable today. Nicely molded kit with recessed panel lines. Features crew, ejection seats, instrument side and main panel detail, opening canopy and optional position landing gear. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
