Brand new, never removed from the box and complete. High quality die-cast model that is completely factory built and painted. Please note the canopy is present, but Franklin Mint shipped them off the model. You have to snap it on to install it. When I saw this kit had never been removed from the packaging, I did not open it. If any of the paperwork is important to you, let me know before you purchase and I will check for you. This is what Franklin Mint says about each of these models: "Each of our die-cast models are hand-assembled and hand painted to ensure quality and authentic detail. To create each exciting precision replica, our designers and engineers make exhaustive examinations of their subject from every conceivable angle; photographing, sketching and in many cases studying the actual plans. Months are spent sculpting a scale prototype that captures even the most intricate details. The result: A precision-engineered model of unsurpassed quality that you will be proud to own and display. Each is a masterpiece of the model maker's art, reflecting our passion for perfection, our total commitment to superb craftsmanship, and our abiding respect for quality and authenticity."

Lindberg Convair XFY-1 - Vertical Take-Off Fighter, 1/48, 526-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$125   

Dramatic Ray Gaedke artwork. Rare early issue from the 1950s. The Convair VTO was a Navy program for a high performance zero-length take off fighter. The aircraft flew well but transition from vertical/horizontal and back was tricky. This, combined with the performance of the new jets signaled the end of the program in 1955. Comes with boarding ladder. Molded in the correct high gloss silver and clear. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Lindberg is a company with a fascinating history The original 'Lindberg Line' stretches back to the 1930s when Paul Lindberg drew plans for famous modeling magazines and marketed his balsa wood 'stick and tissue' by urging dealers to carry the '...Complete Lindberg Line'. After the war, Lindberg and Olsen had a strong hand in early United States injection molded kit development. Please see the article located on this website about early USA plastic kit manufacturers.

Cleveland Grumman F6F-3 Hellcat - (F6F3) Balsa Flying Aircraft, 1/16, SF-97

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$119   

This is a Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. 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 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. 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.

Airfix Blackburn NA-39 Buccaneer - Craftmaster Issue, 1/72, 4-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good++

$27   

Still factory sealed but the seal has split on the right side (and some is missing as shown). This 1960s model sports some of the most dramatic Craftmaster aircraft artwork ever made. A British carrier waves off a very heavily damaged Buccaneer, while enemy ships are within visual range. Other Buccaneers are taking heavy and accurate fire from the enemy, while one nearby ship is engulfed in flames. Propeller driven aircraft (Japanese Kate) fall burning from the sky. Kit features working unique rotating bomb bay, folding wings and working arresting hook. The Buccaneer was the world's first purpose designed low level 'below the radar' bomber. Low level strike aircraft have a shorter airframe life limit due to the stresses of low level flying, so the Buccaneer was designed to be very strong and even had many sub-assemblies milled from solid metal.
