Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++++

Sold   

Dated 1961. This issue has the oval 'sunburst' logo and a 70 cent price extension, so the actual issue date is probably the mid 1960s. The hardbox has excellent color and gloss, four solid corners and very light wear as shown. The kit is molded in olive drab and clear and contains the correct Aurora 'world' triangle stand. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. I would have graded this box 'near mint' but it has 3 digits written on the left side of the box.

When the Germans invaded, they found 3 done and 25 in various states of completion. The Air Ministry was looking for aircraft suitable to salvage sunk aircraft, and the Do-24 fit the bill. The American Wright engines were removed and BMWs installed. The Do-24 went on to see successful service in WWII as recon, supply and ambulance aircraft. A squadron was supplied to Spain, and one Do-24 remained operational until 1970.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Includes parts for the '500 or the '501 and markings for the two aircraft listed. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The D-500 was the result of Programme C-1 in 1932 that was destined to replace the obsolete French fighter fleet. In November of 1933 the D-500 was chosen from the competitors, and this established the reputation of the Dewoitine company. The D-500 was made entirely of metal and fitted with a Hispano-Suiza 12 cylinder engine and a turbo-compressor. It was armed with 2 Vickers machine guns on the cowling and 2 Darne machine guns on the wings. The D-501 was a variant of the D-500 that arried a motorized cannon. The HS-59 20mm cannon and the 2 Mac 34 nacelles replaced the weapons of the '500. The propeller was also changed and lost the streamlined nose cone. Total production of both types was 257 aircraft. At the start of WWII, 43 D-501 fighters were still in front-line service.

Cleveland North American P-51B Mustang - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-91B

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.
