Monogram Artorama The Zebras African Animal Group, CR101

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

This kit was found in the stock room of a long-closed hobby shop and is in factory-new condition. From the original Monogram "Four Star" line. Hardbox is dated 1961. Very large and rare injection molded craft kit. Contains 9.75 inch by 7.75 inch frame - colorful pre-painted 3D Display - frame trim - injection molded Zebras and foliage - paint, two paint brushes and instructions with a small Artorama catalog. Scale unknown. The complete series consisted of three kits - the Lions, Giraffes and the Zebras. The kits are superbly done, but it is likely that the high cost ($2.98 in 1961) kept them from achieving high sales. Never started. 100% inventoried complete with all parts, paint, brushes and instructions present. This peaceful family scene is clearly on a good day, as Discoverwildlife.com reports: "Zebras have very different temperaments to horses. They're far more aggressive and a lot more dangerous. Zebras have been known to kick each other to death."

Cleveland Ryan FR-1 Fireball With Liquids 30.75 Inch Wingspan Balsa Flying Aircraft, 1/16, SF-92

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Very rare, especially in untouched condition and with the fluids. This is the 1946 Deluxe 'large box' issue of this incredibly well detailed flying model and it even comes with the five glass bottles of Cleveland-labeled liquids - cement and colored dope behind the blue cut out display included by Cleveland just to 'show them off.' The four larger bottles are still factory sealed in the brown paper and tape! The one smaller bottle was never sealed. Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' models in museum scale of 1/16 were very complete and this one is no exception. The kit came from a long time collector of 1930s and 1940s models. Features very high quality balsa printwood and strip wood, fully formed thrust button, prop blades, main and nose wheels, balsa blocks and sheet wood, other wood stock, covering material, clear canopy material, highest quality plans and more. Never started and inside it is as it left the factory. No parts are cut out. I have inventoried the kit and it is complete with 'excellent' plans. 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.

Hasegawa Grumman S2F-1 Tracker - Hi-Vis Paint Scheme - (S-2A S2F1), 1/72, 1102

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

1970s issue and very well molded and detailed for that time. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Over 1000 Trackers were completed for the Navy as carrier-based submarine hunters. Grumman was awarded the contract in 1950, and in 1952 the first XS2F-1 flew. The large belly radome contained the PAS-38 search radar and the AWQ-10 MAD detector was in the tail. ALD-3 ECM performed DF (direction finding) duties, and the 70 million candle power spotlight lit up targets at night. Sonobuoys were held in both engine nacelles and offensive weapons included acoustic torpedoes, depth charges, rockets and conventional bombs. Trackers saw service in several other Navies including Canada.

Dated 1957 with classic Jo Kotula artwork. This is the first issue of this kit; note 69 cent price extension and 'Famous Fighters' in the sunburst logo. Never started.

The series began in 1956 and Aurora added new kits into the early 1960s. The line proved incredibly popular, so these kits were included in the 'mold upgrade' in the 1970s before Aurora went out of business.

In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg.

AMT 1952 Studebaker Commander Coupe Key-Wind Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

Original dealer promotional model. AMT went to a good deal of effort on this model. It features a all-metal chassis with a keywind motor, metal axles and gear, metal front bumper & metal rear bumper and clear in all 9 windows. Plastic color is a stunning midnight blue that still has excellent gloss. The body is very good and only has slight warping compared to most. Clear is very nice but can use cleaning. The tires are like new - if it was played with, it was not for long. No parts are missing and it is original except that some of the fine trim (door handles, etc) has been very neatly adult painted. The quality is good enough to pass for factory paint.
