From the 1970s and a reissue of the 1950s kit.

Never started. Inventoried and includes all wood, plastic and metal parts but NOTE: missing full size plans. Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. 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.

Cleveland Fokker D-7 - 20.5 Inch Wingspan Balsa Scale Flying Aircraft (DVII), 1/16, M-15

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$80   

True-scale flying model from 1948 and one of the famous Cleveland kits in the agreed museum scale of 1/16. Features many sheets of high quality printwood, factory cut stringers and spars, partially carved nose block / radiator, other wood blocks as required, fully formed wheels, thrust button and propeller hub, metal and wood stock, complete insignia sheet and covering tissue. Includes the superb Cleveland plans & instructions. Never started and inventoried complete with all parts and paperwork. 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.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$34

The Nitta Maru was the lead ship of a class of three Japanese ocean liners that were built for the Nippon Yusen K line. The Japanese government subsidized the class as they were designed to be converted into small aircraft carriers in the event of war. She was launched in May of 1938. Originally she was to upgrade the NYK line service to Europe, but with the advent of war there and tensions in the Pacific, she was restricted to Pacific Ocean service. After conversion she saw extensive service ferrying aircraft, etc. She was sunk later in the war after two attacks by the submarine USS Sailfish. After the second attack, Chuyo sank quickly with a large loss of life.
