Cleveland 1933 Wedell-Williams Racer - Balsa Flying Aircraft, 1/16, SF-47

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$89   

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.

Monogram US Navy A-5A Vigilante - A3J Attack Bomber, 1/72, PA177-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$72   

Rare, early configuration Vigilante when it was a atomic-weaponed bomber. This is the 1967 'Blue Box' issue of the 1950s Four-Star line and probably second issue. I say this because there are two PA177-100 box variants; I believe this one came first but am not certain. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present.

Aurora Convair F-102 Dart - (YF-102 Delta Dagger), 1/121, 290-39

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$48   

Hardbox issue dated 1957, but from the mid 1960s due to the oval logo with the blue outline. Small scale kit with dramatic Jo Kotula box artwork is nicely molded with clear canopy, full landing gear and display stand. This is a model of the very early YF-102 prototype with the straight (non-area rule) fuselage. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. In the late 1950s Aurora began issuing a series of inexpensive (usually starting at 29 cent) small scale kits that were designed to sell at almost any type of retail location. The line was successful and further expanded into the early 1960s. When Aurora purchased the Comet molds, they fit nicely into this established line.

Aurora Fokker D-VII - (D7), 1/48, 106-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$49   

Still mint factory seal and in investment-grade condition. Kit is dated 1958, but still has original 1956 box art. The actual issue date is from the mid-1960s due to the 1 dollar price extension and the blue oval logo. Aurora's 1/48 scale WWI line debuted in 1956 with six new kits, and the D-7 was #6. The line proved so successful that Aurora added kits almost every year well into the 1960s. Many of them sold well right up until the end of Aurora in 1976.

Revell F-94C Starfire Intereceptor - Pre S Issue, 1/56, H210-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$85   

1954 Pre-S release and the third issue of this historical model. Features the amazing, classic 1950s box art that has made the Pre S and S kits so valuable and collectible today. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The first issue was in the simple one-piece box and Revell quickly converted to this two-piece box as it was much more durable and a full-color lithographed 'slick' could be used. For the second issue, Revell added rivet and raised panel line detail as well as landing gear, and went to this box and H210-79 kit number. The famous 'Globe' clear stand was added, but the 2nd issue has the rare one piece stand arm and the instructions reflecting that. The 3rd issue (this kit) is identical to the 2nd issue except that the 'Globe' stand was changed to the sturdy 3 piece arm version.

Incluces decals for the two different aircraft listed and a 3 view color painting guide on the back of the box. This kit has never been started. It is still in the internally sealed factory bag with decals and instructions. Frog is considered the father of injection molded model kits. The Lines Brothers opened Frog in 1932, capitalizing on the fever caused by Lindberg's solo transatlantic flight. Almost overnight the western populations became 'Air-Minded', and anything aviation was in high demand. Frog created a quality line of stick and tissue rubber powered aircraft and gliders as well as innovative ready-to-fly rubber powered aircraft that required no assembly. The box even contained a built-in rubber motor winder and fuselage holder. Model airplane flight competitions were popular in Great Britain, and one category was 'Rise Off the Ground', or ROG. By changing this to 'Flies Right Off the Ground', the FROG name was born. In 1936 Frog created a line of injection molded plastic models, the first such kit line in the world (Hawk sold a line of injection molded aircraft models in 1934 but they were factory assembled and painted). Named 'Penguin' after the bird that does not fly, the kits were innovative beyond the means of production. At a time when models were simply built by wingspan, the Penguin line was a constant 1/72 scale. Furthermore, a large 1/72 Short S.30 Empire class flying boat contained a full interior and lights! A line of accessories such as AA guns, tractors, hanger, ambulance, sound locator, searchlights and lighting kits were quickly added to the line. WWII caused a pause in production. After the war the box color changed from silver to green, and Penguin kits were also marketed in the USA. Production ended in 1950. Frog quickly expanded and released the Red, Orange, Black, Green, Gold Token, Spin and Comet series as well as Trail Blazers and several others. It is noteworthy that while most manufacturers in the 1940s/50 were making toy-like models, Frog attempted to make very realistic models. For example, 'detailing' kits with excessively large rivets was once very popular. Frog ignored this trend and continued to mold aircraft with fine panel lines and no rivets. As a result, Frog kits can be built into very realistic replicas. Production ended in the late 1970s, but Frog molds are still in use around the world.
