Cleveland P-61 Black Widow - 49 1/2 Inch Wingspan For R/C Or Free Flight Or Giant Scale Display, 1/16, SF155

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++


Very Rare, giant 1/16 scale kit. Ideal kit for electric power and conversion to RC. This model is in the original plain but sturdy cardboard box with 'Cleveland' stamped in ink on it and the name of the kit and kit number on the left short side. The kit came from a long time collector of 1930s and 1940s models and is in exceptional condition. All Cleveland kits were exceptionally complete and this one is no exception. Features very high quality balsa printwood, factory cut spars & strip wood, covering material, two huge sheets of very high quality plans in never-used condition, all required wood blocks, completely finished nacelles, finished main and nose wheels, propeller blades, all required metal stock, clear material for canopy and windshield, two sheets of color insignia and more. The model has not been started. 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, 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.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


Sale Pending
Sign up for the Hotlist.

Rare and very early 1950s issue and likely the first Lindberg release. Features the first Lindberg round logo with the correct very small and narrow hardbox. It is amazing that a 1/48 Starfire even fits in the box, but it does if you pack it very carefully. Molded in the correct gloss silver and clear and with the early Lindberg 'triangle' based two-piece display stand. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. The decals are in remarkable 'near mint' condition and the instructions are 'very good.' The box is only 'good-' because of scuff and wear shown and also masking tape placed neatly on all four corners and an additional piece at the center of each long side.

Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Coast Guard Cutter - 12 Inch Long Wooden Model With Moulded Hull

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Rare ship model from 1930/1940s that contains Ideal's revolutionary 'Premolded Hull.' Since carving the hull was by far the most difficult part of early ship modeling, Ideal created a thick-walled, completely formed, hollow hull made from a wood composite. Never started. Inside, the kit is exactly as it left the factory which means that all the parts are still 'factory tissue sealed.' As was the custom back then, workers would assembly the parts for a kit and wrap them in tissue paper in a unique way that ensured that all the parts would be 'sealed' and held in place. Whoever buys this kit will see the contents for the first time since it was packed at Ideal Aeroplane & Supply in New York well over 90 years ago. Ideal Aeroplane & Supply was one of the earliest aircraft model makers in the USA, marketing their first kit in 1911 and running a well-known storefront that sold materials as well as kits for early aeromodelers. What is less known is that they had a very large line of ship kits also. They ranged from one foot to several feet long and covered unique and popular civil subjects as well as warships and submarines of the period. The company was very innovative in introducing the Moulded Hull which cut assembly time by more than half by eliminating all hull carving, shaping and sanding. The builder could use it right out-of-the-box and immediately add the deck, superstructure, fittings and prime or paint. Ideal was also known for their excellent, full size multi-view plans that includes many assembly notes, rigging diagrams, tips, additional detail drawings and much more. Often there was even a detailed painting guide.
