AAC Supply Company Eaglerock Bullet American Air Cadets Official Construction Kit - 33 Inch Wingspan Flying Aircraft

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Very, very rare and from around 1930/32. American Air Cadets was one of the early national flying model clubs, and the magazine "Popular Aviation" was their official publication. Kit features bamboo and balsa construction and includes all required strip wood, bamboo, spars, balsa blocks, covering tissue, construction plans (which lists the model as 1/4 the size of the actual aircraft), a large sheet of color insignia, a beautiful machine-carved prop, fully formed wooden wheels, clear window material and even a mail-in form appealing to "All American Air Cadets Should subscribe for and read their official publication Popular Aviation." Never started and includes all items described, which I believe makes it complete (early kits were notorious for making you scratch build things from your own materials -this one is unusually complete). These kits seldom show up but there is some debate about the age; some have quoted 'late 1930s.' By the late 30s, bamboo had been replace completely by balsa. Furthermore, full-size plans were in vogue. The composite construction, complete lack of printwood and the tiny plans for such a large model (requiring the builder to personally scale them up from dimensions only) is directly in line with the late 1920s and early 1930s. The age of this kit is verified by urging that "From your fertile minds will come secrets at last of SAFE and sustained flight that will make man free as the birds and of course more mighty." The cost of one year was $1.75. POPULAR AVIATION was started in August 1927 by airplane fan William B. Ziff (of Ziff-Davis Magazines). Under Editor Harley W. Mitchell it became the largest aviation magazine with a circulation of 100,000 in 1929. The magazine's title became AERONAUTICS in June 1929, but was changed back to POPULAR AVIATION in July 1930. The magazine became FLYING in 1942, and is still published today by Hachette Filipacchi Media. [Source: Michael Holley in Wikipedia]
