Aurora Cessna 310, 1/62, 283-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$175   

Rare issue dated 1963 and from ex-Comet molds. Neatly molded with all recessed panel lines, clear side and front windows, tip tanks, rotating propellers, display stand and full pinstripe decals. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Aurora had started a line of inexpensive 29 cent kits in about 1957. The line was a success, and it was expanded. The line grew again when Aurora purchased the Comet molds, as most of Comet's line was very small scale kits, many of them civil aircraft like this one. It appears that Aurora was encouraged by the sale of the ex-Comet civil aircraft, as it expanded the line with it's own molds in the early 1960s.

Huma Model Arado Ar-396, 1/72, 23

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$26   

The highly successful Ar-96 was an all metal aircraft designed by Walter Blume. It first flew in 1938 and quickly became the Luftwaffe's standard advanced trainer for the duration of WWII. The Ar-396 was a direct development of the Ar-96; the main difference was that it used less strategic materials. The Ar-396 A-1 was single-seat gunnery trainer that was powered by an Argus As 411 engine and built largely from wood. This model is the two seater version, which would appear to be the A-2 instrument trainer. Still factory sealed. Nicely molded model with recessed panel lines, good cockpit, crew, bomb load and more.

One bathing beauty has her bathing suit painted red. There is no other painting. NOTE: The flat hull glass windows have glue marks and smears; I have included them but also included plenty of thick plastic clear stock.

Cleveland Great Lakes Trainer - Flying Model Airplane, 1/16, SF-1G

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$110   

This is a Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. This is the early cardboard box with the silver printing. 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 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.
