Cleveland B-17 Flying Fortress - For R/C or Free Flight, SF-100

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

$795   

Giant 1/16 scale kit with a 77.25 inch wingspan. 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 #. 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.

Pyro 1914 Mercer Raceabout, 1/32, C452-125

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$44   

Still factory sealed. 1967 Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of its kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. In some cases, the specific car and owner is on the box. This car is an exact reproduction of the car owned by Ralph T. Buckley, owner of the Antique Auto Shop of New Jersey. This shop specialized in rebuilding Mercer automobiles to factory new condition. The car was part of the Gene Zimmerman display of over 150 such cars in Holiday West PA. Kit includes rubber tires, brass plated parts, colored injection molded parts and clear parts. Features detailed chassis, complete motor and interior and a removable hood or 'bonnet.'

Frog Lockheed Ventura PV-1 Bomber/Reconnaissance, 1/72, F240

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$450   

Very rare. Near the end, Frog had projected several future kits. In the case of the Ventura, the kit was never released but the molds were made. Around 40,000 boxes were made anticipating production. Most of the boxes were destroyed. A unknown number of decals sheets were produced. There are no instruction sheets reported. The mold was put in the machine and 100 test shots were run - the only Ventura run at Frog. The 100 test shots were not sold but some found their way into collectors hands. This example is in a 'very good+' box with four solid corners and light general wear. It contains the decals and all parts. It is molded in gloss dark blue and clear, which is correct for the test shots. The kit has never been started and is complete. Please note there are no instructions as none were ever made. Shipping insurance is required for this kit.

Pocher Itala 35/45 CV. 1907 Peking to Paris Race Winner, 1/8

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$1400   

Very, Very Rare. One of 350 made. Very highly detailed, large scale kit with about 600 parts. Features full engine, rolling chassis, cockpit and much more. The kit has never been started. Inside, the kit has never been touched and is as it left the factory. All the parts that were factory sealed (which is almost all of them) are still factory sealed. The few that were not sealed have been inventoried complete. Please note that the original paint condition ranges from 'excellent' to 'poor.' One plastic piece has two clean breaks but is complete and a straight-forward repair. This kit is fragile and sold as a collectible only. Thanks to Giovanni Ingrao and Scalemotorcars for the following information: This kit is the forerunner of all large-scale Pocher car kits. From 1972 to 1979, Ar-Po (Arnaldo Pocher) produced quality train accessories. But in May of 1981 Arnaldo, with help from his son-in-law Adelmo Canali (a famous Italian model maker), set out to create the their first car kit: The Peking-Paris race winner, Itala 35/45 CV. from 1907. They started production in 1983 and sold it under the name brand "Metrop - Produced by AR-Po." Production was limited to 350 kits. It is a very highly detailed kit with parts in plastic, wood (where the real car had wood), pewter, brass, copper, aluminum, steel, leather and more. It is very highly detailed, like the future Pocher kits. Arnaldo Pocher died in a tragic accident in 1989.

Hawk Laird Solution Racer - Lincoln International Issue - Bagged, 1/48

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good

$38   

From the 1950s. Rare kit for the advanced Hawk collector. Still factory sealed but the header panel is in 'good' condition. I have shown the best side; the reverse has a price tag tear. This kit was 'Made in the British Empire by Lincoln International.' Lincoln was an injection molding firm that issued models as a side-line. Kits were made in Great Britain, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand and sold in many more. They reissued at least 13 Hawk kits. I have dated these late 1950s because the R3C-1 Army Racer (also released in this series) still has wheels. Later issues had floats.
