Comet F-51 Mustang Struct-O-Speed Prefabricated Flying Aircraft - (P-51), 2304-100

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

Purchased new on January 14, 1972. Comet would advertise that the Struct-O-Speed series 'Puts Itself Together...That Quick!' on the box top, and it was not a completely idle boast. These kits were very highly prefabricated for their time, and in comparison to the regular stick and tissue models, the claim is not unfounded. Kit features die cut and factory painted balsa wood parts, clear vacuform canopy, formed and finished wheels, plastic prop & thrust button, rubber motor, color insignia and detailed instructions with flying tips. Never started and inventoried complete. Has a 13" wingspan when assembled. Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.

Cleveland Howard's Pete Racer - Balsa Flying Aircraft, 1/16, SF-18

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

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.

AMT 1966 Ford Falcon 2 Door HT Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Amazing condition, true dealer promotional model with the original box. One owner and obtained new from a Lexington, KY dealership in 1966 by a discriminating collector. It was never used, displayed or played with and the tires reflect that. Car color and gloss are like new, as is the chrome, clear and tires. Complete with all parts. I'll grade it 9.5 out of 10 with the only deduction being a few light roof scuffs from the box.. The box is 'good-' and is stamped "FALCON SPORTS COUPE WIMBLEDON WHITE" on the end flap. There are no AMT markings, but I have listed it as AMT as a guess since they marketed the Falcon construction kits in this year and this scale.
