Cleveland Mitsubishi A6M-2 Zero (Zeke) - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit - (A6M2), 1/16, SF-86

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


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.

Billing Boats St. Roch RCM Arctic Patrol Boat - Plank on Frame Wood Ship, 1/72, 605

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint


Still factory sealed. Includes full fittings set. This is a beautiful scale model of the famous RCMP vessel built in 1928. 1:72 scale kit measures 16.93"H x 18.5"L x 4.3"W and 12.8"H . From the Billing website - "All of the 600 Series Model Boat Kits (item numbers 600-609) include an easier way of building the hull. The hull is assembled in halves, on a table. This allows for easier assembly and is quite useful in learning plank-on-frame or plank-on-bulkhead construction! Once each half is done you join the two for a completed hull. Make sure you work each half in opposite directions so that when joined they marry up evenly!" In 1940, the St. Roch set out from Vancouver on a secret mission through the Northwest passage. On this voyage, the St. Roch combined its normal supply mission with a deliberate assertion of Canadian sovereignty over the Arctic. Due to heavy ice conditions, the ship spent two winters frozen in Arctic waters, finally reaching Halifax on October 11, 1942. The voyage claimed the life of one crew member. The St. Roch was the first ship to complete the voyage through the Northwest Passage from Pacific to Atlantic. In the summer of 1944, it became the first ship to traverse the Arctic in both directions when it crossed the Northwest Passage again, this time from Halifax to Vancouver. The St. Roch was built in 1928 by the Burrard Dry Dock Company in North Vancouver.
