Esoteric Curtiss 'F' Boat, 1/72, NAF-14

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed

Sold   

The Curtiss F was the first successful production flying boat in history. The US Navy originally purchased five and numbered them C-1 through C-5, and later AB-1 through AB-5. C-1 was the first US aircraft to be catapult launched and AB-2 was the US Navy's first successful ship launched aircraft. The F was also the first Navy aircraft to be used in hostilities against another nation during the Mexican Expedition. Eventually around 144 were made for the US Navy and they served till the end of WWI in training squadrons. Esoteric was known for making perhaps the finest vacuform kits. The moldings are crisp and have fine recessed detail - better than many injection molded kits. Every part needed to complete the kit is included down to the interior. Includes metal parts - decals - shaped struts and full instructions. Never started and 100% complete.

Cleveland Baby Playboy Gas Model Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, GP-5008

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

33 inch wingspan for Class 'A' powered gasoline free-flight events. Cleveland entered the 1930s gas model market with the famous Playboy series. The design is so solid and popular that it is still a favorite at meets today (Like SAM - Society of Antique Modelers) where free-flight competition exist. Cleveland was late to introduce these kits (1939), but they wanted to ensure that the quality and performance was there. It appears that there were three aircraft in the Playboy line - the Baby, Junior and Senior. The model has not been started and is in exceptional condition. It comes from a long-time flying aircraft collection. 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.
