Matchbox Beaufighter Mk-X - RAF Coastal Comman 254 Sq 1945 or 144 Sq 1945, 1/72, PK103

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG+

$26

Revell Avro Dam Buster Lancaster, 1/72, H202-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$38   

1963 hardbox issue with great artwork and 'Secret Bomb.' Features specially modified Lancaster fuselage with Dam Buster bomb and release mechanism. Landing gear retracts, props and wheels turns and all control surfaces move. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: the decals are all present but there is a 2cm x 2cm square cut out of one corner and there is very light overspray on the sheet. The Dam Busters squadron was famous for its daring raids on three German dams on May 16, 1943. Carrying the special Barns Wallis-designed bombs, the Lancasters flew very low over the water in the face of heavy flak to drop the rotating bombs perfectly. Many did not return. The bombs did perform as promised, first skipping over the water, hitting the dam, then rolling down 30 feet before exploding with tremendous force. In an airburst, these bombs would not have damaged the dams, but since water is incompressible, the dams were breached.

Revell F-106 A Delta Dart 'S' Issue, 1/67, H298-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$65   

NOTE: ideal builder kit, please read below. 1958 first issue with the famous box art that makes this kit so collectible. This was a fantastic kit for that time and features very realistic, all fine recessed panel lines and tiny rivets, working ailerons, opening canopy, pilot and ejection seat and gear well detail. Molded in gloss silver and clear and with the famous 'Swivel' clear globe stand. The kit has never been started. NOTE: the pilot figure is missing. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts present and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: instructions are photocopies of the original. The main box flaw is the stain on the front by the nose gear; all other parts are excellent, but I have graded it 'Good-.'

Revell Boeing IM-99 Bomarc With Launcher 'S' Kit, 1/47, H1806-149

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$95   

Original issue 'S' kit from 1957. Highly detailed. Features fully operational launcher and crew. Molded in black. NOTE: this kit has minor assembly. The tank halves (on the launcher) have been neatly assembled and painted. There is no other assembly and no other painting. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: The instructions are intact and completely usable, but have a closed tear in the center, a stain and have darkened. Some parts are gloss black and others are less gloss black; I believe that the parts are from an original S issue and the later History Makers issue.

$115   

Original issue Action Model from 1961. Features a unique system of landing gear operation: when you pull the prop outward and rotate it CCW, the landing gear retracts.

The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals, rigging material and instructions. The box displays better than the 'very good' grade but has pieces of masking tape on the four short sides (once used to reseal the box). That is why it is graded as such.

Cleveland Playboy Senior Class C Gas Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, GP-5017

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$225   

70 inch wingspan class 'C' gas free-flight model airplane. 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 competitions are still held. 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. Whoever buys it will be the second owner; the first lives in town with me. The parts are inventoried 100% complete and includes covering tissue and 'excellent' never-used plans. Please NOTE: that there is some bug damage to the issue paper and very tiny bit to the edge of the plans. 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.
