Cleveland Travel-Air Mystery Ship - Flying Or Scale, 1/16, SF-2

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

NOTE: perfect builder, please read carefully. This is a Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. Features very high quality balsa printwood and strip wood, covering material, highest quality plans, all parts required for assembly and insignia. NOTE: this model has minor assembly. The engine core (crankcase) parts have been cut out and assembled. Quality of assembly is 'very good+.' The cowl parts and a few other have been cut out but not assembled; quality of cutting is 'very good++.' There is no other work done. The kit has been inventoried complete with all parts, plans and insignia sheets. 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.

Pyro Monitor and Merrimac Civil War Ironclads, B257-150

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

1950s issue with great hardbox artwork by AJ Rudisill. Nice models of the two American Civil War ships that spelled the end of the wooden ship age. In March of 1862, the Merrimac put to sea to raise the Union Blockade off the St. James. There she sank the Cumberland and Congress. The Monitor, the Union's only ironclad and the first turret ship, was rushed to the scene. The epic battle between the two iron-clad ships ended in a draw, with the Merrimac suffering a little more damage than the Monitor. The Merrimac was blown up to avoid capture; the Monitor sank later in a gale in 1862. The Monitor is 10 inches long and the Merrimac is 11 inches long when built. Both are full hull models and include display stands. Never started. Both the Monitor and Merrimac have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Although dated, these kits are generally considered superior to the Lindberg issues of the same ships.
