Cleveland Curtiss F11C-2 Goshawk - Balsa Flying Aircraft - (F11C2), 1/16, SF-49

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Rare 1934 issue in the Deluxe Silver Box. NOTE: ideal builder kit, please read carefully. This is a 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. The kit came from a long time collector of 1930s and 1940s models. All Cleveland kits were exceptionally and this one is no exception. Features very high quality balsa printwood and strip wood, other wood stock, pre-drilled wheel pants blocks, metal cowl material, fully formed wheels, brass hardware (small sheet and washers), a variety of metal stock, sheets of full color insignia (stuck together) and a great instrument panel, rigging material, covering material and highest quality plans. There is no assembly but NOTE: many parts are neatly cut out. Quality is 'professional' which is great if you plan on building it. I have inventoried the kit and it is missing fuselage bulkheads #10 and #11. Otherwise includes all other parts and plans. NOTE: the plans have a clear dope stain on them but are perfectly usable. 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 supply 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.
