Monogram Artorama The Zebras African Animal Group, CR101

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$100   

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.

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.

Monogram Air Force Patrol - B-66 Skywarrior (A-3A) / C-47 Skytrain / SA-16B Albatross Gift Set, MGP7-349

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM++

$850   

Very rare. Monogram did not issue many gift sets. To make matters more interesting, the ones they issued were very short lived. Many were simply sets of models in sleeves with no dedicated boxes. By 1960, the Monogram Gift sets were no more. This gift set, the Air Force patrol, is interesting because it's not just a sleeve; it has a dedicated box designed for this gift set. It is the one and only issue, dated 1957. The condition is investment grade; the box has no more wear than when it was removed from the shipping carton. The colors and gloss are as new with minor edge wear as the only flaw. Inside, the three kits are still individually factory sealed, including the tube of Monoglue. Also includes the original "Monogram Model Merry Christmas" box wrapper, also in fantastic condition - these seldom survived the opening of the kit. Overall, a hard-to-find kit in factory new condition.

Revell Lockheed Electra II Los Angeles Dodgers, 1/115

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$225   

SALE! Very rare. Special issue of the Dodgers Team Aircraft made by Revell just for the concessions dealer 'Danny Goodman' for the LA Dodgers, Inc. I purchased this kit along with the Revell factory shipping carton. This carton was originally sold to Union 76 Service Station #3459, located at 12080 Ventura Blvd in Studio City California. The case was shipped directly from Revell in Los Angeles to the Union Oil Station; the gas station owner's son confirmed this. (Somehow Danny Goodman was bypassed in the transaction!). The kit is fresh from the original shipping carton with no more wear than you would expect. The box is in investment grade 'near mint' condition with the only flaws being some yellowing and light wear on the paper label. Inside, the kit is factory new. All parts, decals and instructions are still sealed in the Revell factory bag. The kit includes a wonderful photo of the 1963 Dodgers - World's Champions!

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.
