Cleveland Spad XIII - 19 Inch Wingspan Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, M-13

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

This is a Cleveland "Master" Scale Flying model in 1/16 museum scale. All Cleveland kits were exceptionally complete and this one is no exception. Features very high quality balsa printwood and strip wood, other wood stock as required, fully carved cowl & thrust button, completely formed hardwood wheels, clear celluloid for the windshield, metal stock, three big sheets of color insignia, covering tissue, highest quality plans and more. The model has not been started. The parts have been inventoried 100% complete with all 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) and 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 this time. Some of these models flew and flew well, but they all had one thing in common - they 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- 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.
