Cardstock Paper Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

Sold   

Large and highly detailed waterline kit of a rare subject. Originally the freighter Cairo launched in 1936, she was converted to an armed merchant cruiser and broke out in May of 1942 - the last German merchant raider to do so. She operated in the South Atlantic for 4.5 months, sinking three ships. The Stier attacked the converted liner Pasteur (after the war, the German Bremen) but she was to fast and easily outranged the raider. She appeared to be headed for victory #4 when she spotted the SS Stephen Hopkins. The Hopkins was very badly outgunned on paper, but scored early and critically with her one 4" gun. The broadside from Stier was too much however, but by then both ships were mortally wounded. Only fifteen survivors made it to Brazil from the Hopkins, while only two from the raider were lost, with the rest picked up by the near-by supply ship Tannenfels. Features color printed high-quality cardstock - no painting required. The kit has not been started. The parts are complete and the sheets are uncut.

Cleveland Howard's 1935 Mr. Mulligan Racer - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-52

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

This is a Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. The kit came from a long time collector of 1930s and 1940s models and is in exceptional condition. 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 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.

Aurora Cessna 310, 1/62, 283-29

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

1963 issue 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. Molded in blue and clear. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including all parts, 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. Many of them were small scale 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.
