Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Revell Lockheed P-3A Orion ASW Aircraft, 1/115, H163-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

1965 hardbox issue. The short service life of many Lockheed Electra aircraft posed a problem for Revell; they had invested in the Electra tooling but the kits were no longer selling. Luckily, the Navy took a long term view of the Electra airframe/powerplant combination and saw a superb ASW aircraft. Revell modified the Electra molds to produce this fine small scale Orion kit. And the Orion is still in Navy service today! NOTE: this kit has minor and very neat assembly. The wing, MAD boom and search light halves have been built. The quality of the work is 'excellent++.' Inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. All parts and paperwork are still internal factory bag sealed.

Cleveland Republic P-47 Thunderbolt With Liquids 30.75 Inch Wingspan Balsa Flying Aircraft, 1/16, SF-81

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Very rare, especially in this condition. This is the 1942 Deluxe 'large box' issue of this incredibly well detailed flying model and it even comes with the four large glass bottles of the correct Cleveland-labeled liquids - cement and colored dope behind the blue cut out display included just to show them off. Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' modeles in museum scale of 1/16 were very complete and this one is no exception. The kit came from a long time collector of 1930s and 1940s models. Features very high quality balsa printwood and strip wood, fully formed thrust button, prop blades, main and tail wheels, balsa blocks and sheet wood, other wood stock, covering material, highest quality plans and more. The kit has never been started and inside it is as it left the factory. No parts are cut. I have inventoried the kit and it is complete with 'excellent' plans. I have wrapped the glass bottles for protection during shipping. This is a wartime issue and it is amazing that the fluids are included and that the kit is all balsa (Cleveland had to quickly discontinue the fluids and also balsa was declared a war material. 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 running single-owner (77 years) model airplane supply business - 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 'Aviation's 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.

Cleveland Waco C-6 Cabin Flying Wood Aircraft, 1/24, D-62

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

This is a Cleveland 'D' or dwarf kit from the 1940s/50s. The term 'Dwarf' is deceptive, as it is 1/24 scale. Most Cleveland kits were designated 'SF' or Scale Flying - 1/16 scale. The Dwarf kits were needed to fill a market demand for smaller flying models - especially of the larger aircraft. The 'D' kits, like this Waco, are 1/24. 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, fully formed wheels, covering material, highest quality plans and more. The model has not been started. Inventoried complete.
