Cleveland Mile Fliers The C-S Interceptor - Fuselage Style Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, C-3

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Early World War II 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.

Jo-Han 1970 Cadillac Eldorado Coupe Promo With Original Box, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

All original promo in amazing, factory-new condition. One-owner model was obtained new in 1970 in Lexington, KY by a very discriminating collector. The box is original to the model and stamped "1970 Eldorado" on the end flap. The actual model has perfect color and gloss, perfect chrome and has never even been displayed. I would grade it 9 out of 10 with 10 being flawless. The only flaws are light box scuffs which you can see only at the right angles. They can probably be buffed out.

Aurora Piper Aztec C, 1/72, 282-70

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

1968 issue and still the only injection molded Aztec kit. After Aurora purchased the Comet molds, they reissued the Comet civil light aircraft line.

Since the kit was designed new, it has significantly more detail than the older Comet kits. Features all recessed panel lines, full interior with a sofa, four seats and instrument panel, optional position landing gear and rotating propellers. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please note, one prop retainer is short shot.
