Cleveland Ben Howards Mr. Mulligan Racing Aircraft, 1/16, SF-52

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Dated 1947. This is a Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. This is the earlier simple cardboard box with the silver printing. 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. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. NOTE: there is light bug damage to the paperwork. 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 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.

AMT 1964 Ford Thunderbird 2 Door Hardtop Promo With Original Box, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Very rare promotional in superb condition and includes the original box. The box is stamped "T-BIRD - HT RANGOON RED" on the bottom. The model was obtained on March 1, 1965 by a discriminating adult collector in Lexington KY. The promo has never even been displayed - it has been in the box wrapped with factory tissue since it left the factory. The color and gloss are factory new, but there are some box scuffs on the roof. The chrome is 'near mint.' There is no body warp and the clear is in 'excellent++' condition. I would grade this one 9 out of 10 with 10 flawless. The deduction is for the roof scuffs. The original box is complete and 'good+' with general age spotting.

NOTE: as with many of these kits, the short nose probe is broken off the fuselage and missing. It is very easily made from pulled sprue. Also, the box displays much better than the 'good' grade but is ranked as such because there is a litho tape pull on the lower long side and a small price tag pull on the right short side.
