AMT 1964 Chevrolet Impala SS Convertible Promo With Friction Drive Motor, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Sold   

Original dealership promotional model but please read carefully as it is not perfect. The model is complete and paint color and gloss are excellent with very few flaws. Chrome, tires and clear are also 'excellent.' Bright trim, fog lights, boot, sun visors and chassis plate are very neatly painted; paint quality is better than much of that from the factory. NOTE: the top windshield header was once broke but is complete and glued back on. Same with the steering wheel ring. For all these reasons it is priced well under market.

Revell 1914 Stutz Bearcat Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H38

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

1952 first issue molded in yellow and black gloss plastic. This model is old hobby shop stock in extraordinary condition that has not been for retail sale until now. Never started. The parts are still factory sealed in the clear 'krinkle' bag. With instructions. Before the 1950s 'model building' never made the top 10 list of boy's activities. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream. Shortly after the turn of the century, many dedicated modelers built flying or static airplanes, ship, train, automotive or other subjects. Basic kits existed, but the majority of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s. The phenomenon of the Revell/Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' car kits was a significant force in proving that model building as a hobby could have mass appeal, provided that the kits were easy enough to build and finish. These 1/32 scale vehicles could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real car. The Highway Pioneers series lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys.

Cleveland Ben Howards Mr. Mulligan 1935 Thompson Trophy Winner, 1/16, M-52

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

This is Cleveland's deluxe issue dated 1949 and with the unusual full artwork box. It is a scale flying model in museum scale of 1/16 with a wingspan of 23.5 inches. All Cleveland kits were exceptionally complete and this one is no exception. Features very high quality balsa printwood and strip wood, covering material in balsa and tissue, highest quality plans, fully carved nose cowl, partially formed solid wheel pants, completely formed wheels and thrust button, thrust washers, clear window material, a large sheet with complete gold and black insignia and full color 'GULF' oil logos in two different sizes. 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 running single-owner (77 years) model airplane 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.

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.
