Carl Goldberg Models Hi Thrust Viking - 48 Inch Wingspan .049-.051 Gas Free Flight Airplane, G10-550

$110

Features all die-cut balsa sheet wood and die-cut plywood parts, fully formed training edges, hardware, hinge material, covering tissue, decals and full plans/instructions. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and plans present. Carl Goldberg was a gifted designer of model aircraft, and his career spanned the evolution of flying models. His designs and number of titles won in competition at the Nationals is legendary. His first competition was the 1928 Nationals, where he received honorable mention. By 1934 he won the indoor Nats and in 1935 he opened a Hobby Shop, among the first in the nation (the first one was probably opened by Cleveland Models Ed Packard). Awards came quickly. He wrote articles for Model Airplane News, and was Comet's top designer from 1939 till 1945. After Comet, he worked with Mike Schlesinger and Sid Axelrod on what eventually became Top-Flite Models. In 1955 he founded Carl Goldberg Models and released a still-popular line of scale, rubber, gas, glider and RC models. Needless to say, Goldberg's models are of the highest quality.

Competition Models Inc Starduster 600 - 61 Inch Wingspan Gas Powered Free Flight Model

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$119   

This large model is 35.5" long and has a 71" wingspan. This is one of the famous Sal Taibi's National award winning designs for use with 'hot' engines .15 to .29 displaccement. Sal was one of the early 'Kings Of Gas Free Flight' and a very gifted designer. Feature high quality balsa and plywood parts, spar and strip wood, metal stock as required, aluminum motor mount, hardware and excellent full size plans. Never started and inside it is in factory-new condition. The small parts are still in the factory sealed clear bag; the other parts have been inventoried complete with the plans. NOTE: this kit was shipped in the very sturdy box shown. Unless you specify otherwise, we will send it wrapped in brown paper. If you wish to have it boxed, extra postage will apply. Designed for 'Sniffing Thermals,' the honored pastime of a generation of model enthusiasts. Flying model aircraft predated powered flight; however, balsa wood and printwood were not introduced until the early 1930s and the hobby took off, as well as the hunt for thermals. Gas flight began in the early 1930s, and powered models (most all driven by Brown engines) took home so many awards that they were forever separated in competition from rubber powered models. Design of gas models was tricky since RC (radio control) models could not yet be applied to the mass market; so a gas model had to not only fly and climb under power, but then glide sufficiently - all in a stable fashion and without any operator inputs once the airplane took off.

One of a very popular line of World War 1 flying aircraft stick and tissue kits with an 18 inch wingspan. This kit features scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, light vacuform nose cowl, die cut balsa parts, covering tissue, completely finished thrust button, metal propeller shaft/rubber hook, rubber motor and full decals. Includes full size, detailed plans. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. Guillow's founder, Paul K. Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.

Features very high quality balsa printwood, factory cut spars & strip wood, covering material, two huge sheets of very high quality plans in never-used condition, all required wood blocks, completely finished nacelles, finished main and nose wheels, propeller blades, all required metal stock, clear material for canopy and windshield, two sheets of color insignia and more. The model has not been started. 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, 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.

He thrilled many people around the glove in his little red and white Jungmeister. His showmanship was exciting to observe and John Marco saw him fly in 1964. Mr. Howard's exact Jungmesiter was manufactured in Germany in 1936 and brought over on the Hindenburg by the late Capt. Alex Papana, 'The Famed Romanian Acrobatic Pilot' who exhibited it in the 1936 National Air Races in Los Angles and several other events. Col. Mike Murphy, International Acrobatic Champion for several years, purchased the plane in 1940 and flew it in all major USA meets and competition until retiring. Beverly Howard purchased this plane from Col. Murphy in 1946 and has flow it in all major meets since that time including events in France and Germany in 1950. When this aircraft bio was written in the early 90s, the Smithsonian Air Museum planed on exhibiting this very historic aircraft when it was retired.
