The 1891 Panhard was among the very first modern cars and with it's groundbreaking innovations was certainly the grandfather of the present day automobile. This is a rare kit of this historic automobile from when France clearly lead the automotive world in technology and quality. This happened largely because the French people, government and authorities embraced the horseless carriage; this was the opposite of what happened in most countries, especially Great Britain where they regulated it almost completely out of existence. The actual model is nicely molded and features about 75 pieces, detailed suspension and drive line, large assembly guide with numbered parts layout, text & fully illustrated step-by-step instructions and automobile history (in French). There is no assembly but NOTE: the spokes of two wheels have been very neatly painted red. There is no other painting. Inventoried complete with all parts and instructions present.

Very rare and exceptional first issue from the early 1950s and one of the famous 'Brooklyn 8' which were Aurora's first aircraft kits.

The instructions are 'excellent' with age yellowing on one panel as the only notable flaw. The box is 'Excellent+++' with amazing color and gloss, no fading, no tear, no missing litho, no tape (other than the thin factory sealing tape, of course), no stains or repairs and the very neatly applied original price tag on the right short side from "Neisner's 5 Cent to $1.00 Store." Box flaws include light scuffing and the slightest hint of a .25 inch crease at the upper right as the only flaws. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present.

Sterling Piper Cub Super Cruiser PA-12 - 35.5 Inch Wingspan Flying Model For Rubber / Gas / Free Flight / Control Line / R/C / Non-Flying Super Detail Scale, 1/12, E6

$110

Includes Sterling's superb full-size plans and instructions. Never started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed 'Sterling' clear bag. The parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete and includes all paperwork. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they featured color decals, high-grade die cut balsa, vacuform plastic detail parts, plastic wheels (if required), finished wire landing gear, rubber motor and plastic prop, full size plans with instruction details and full instructions for conversion to RC or control line and more.

Cleveland Stinson Reliant - 82.5 inch Wingspan R/C Model Airplane, GP-66B

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Very rare and one of the 'Holy Grails' of early R/C aircraft. This is a huge model in 1/6 scale. Unlike most flying airplane models, this kit is an exact duplicate of the real airplane - right down to the wing rib spacing, the rib structure, stringer spacing and much more. Beautifully done as only Cleveland could do and can be flown with class A / B / C motors. Includes full size plans and numerous prefabricated parts. It has never been started and has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts and paperwork present. 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.

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Revell SMS Seeadler With 'S' Glue - German WWI Commerce Raider - (Sea Eagle), 1/232, H382-298

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$220   

Rare 1960 hardbox first issue and ever rarer in this condition. The 'Excellent++' condition box features great framable John Steel artwork. Inside, it even contains a factory-wrapped very colorful metal tube of 'S' glue as well as a history of the Seeadler, a message from Count Luckner, a map of the journey and locations & names of all the ships sunk by the raider. This is a kit of a fantastic subject, the famous WWI sailing commerce raider of Count Felix Von Luckner. It is a very well detailed model for that time and has a full hull, display stand, detailed deck houses and deck fittings, davits and ship's boats, guns, fife rails, preformed rat lines, rigging material, rigging instructions and much more. Molded in gray, brown & black plastic. Never started. It has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts and includes the flag sheet and instructions. The SMS Seeadler was a unique WWI raider in that it was not designed to elude the British blockade and break out to sea...it was designed to pass right through the blockade within full view of the British before attacking allied shipping around the world. No detail was overlooked in the Seeadler's preparation, right down to a Norwegian-speaking crew. The plan went perfectly - and the Seeadler passed inspection at the British Blockade. Her non-threatening appearance helped her in an active and colorful raiding career that nearly went around the world. I highly recommend reading any of several books that you can find about this ship. Von Luckner himself became quite a celebrity for his exciting exploits.
