Airfix Santa Maria With Sails Bagged - Type One Logo

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

$74   

Still factory sealed. Very rare first issue from the 1950s before Airfix assigned any kit numbers. The paper header is in 'excellent' condition and is still factory stapled to the original parts bag. This well molded, small-scale waterline model features billowing sails, clear printed ratlines and a water display stand. The ship itself measures about 3.5 inches in length when built.

Hudson Miniatures 1903 Rambler Old Timers, 1/16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$89   

Very well detailed large 1/16 kit from 1949. Features plastic wheels, lights, other accessories and wooden main parts and occasionally metal parts and cardstock. Although all of Hudson's 1/16 kits have excellent detail, this one has even more detail than usual thanks to Hudson's engineers having access to the actual car. This kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts, plans and instructions. Hudson Miniatures created a very popular line of automobile kits in a constant 1/16 scale shortly after WWII. The kits sold very well...so well that you could argue that Gowland & Gowland borrowed Hudson's subject matter for their ground-breaking 'Highway Pioneers.' The Hudson Miniatures 'Old Timers' even spawned a line of imitators, with Fador's 'Smallster' being one of the better in quality. Sales did drop on the appearance and popularity of the much smaller (and less accurate) Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' in 1951. When the all-injection molded Gowland kits proved not to be a passing fad, Hudson quickly planned and released his own all-plastic, small-scale competition called 'Lil' Old Timers Quickie Kits.' The kits were of excellent quality, but it was too little too late. Additionally, sales of the excellent wooden kits faltered further in the next few years with the introduction of accurate, 1/24 and 1/32 all-plastic cars in the mid 1950s. This forced Hudson to discontinue the wood kits and the plastic line was sold to Revell and subsequently re-released. Today, these excellent, big 1/16 kits are often the only model available of these early automobiles. In the mid 1960s Aurora thought so highly of Hudson Miniatures that they purchased the wood kit assets and released a very small number of these in all-plastic models.

MPC Hot Rodder's Ghost Of America Stroker McGurk - Original Issue, 104-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$34   

Rare original issue from 1964; not the common reproduction. Stroker McGurk was created and drawn by Tom Medley for Hot Rod Magazine. The popularity of the character gave MPC an idea - why not make a model? While an excellent kit, it proved to be a poor marketing choice. The kit was far less popular than the cartoons. As a result, it was quickly and quietly withdrawn from production, making the originals very rare. This Race Car is heavily styled on the Red Baron's Fokker DR-1 and molded in dark red and chrome plate. The chrome parts are in 'mint' condition. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried and NOTE: missing one part, steering wheel. Includes all other parts and includes 'excellent+' condition decals and instructions. No scale is given but it is large; the body measures 10 inches long when assembled.

Planet Models Heinkel He-114 A-2 - Luftwaffe or Swedish Air Force, 1/72, 035

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$56   

Rare. Very highly detailed resin cast kit with clear canopy. Decals and paint guide are included for both air forces. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The He-114 was a two-seat float plane designed in 1935 to replace the He-60 in the role of shipboard reconnaissance. A number of engines were tried in the prototypes and the design frozen by 1938 for production. Although somewhat dated by WWII standards, it did see action for about half the war. Before hostilities began, 12 were sold to Sweden.

Cleveland Seversky P-35 Pursuit Aircraft, 1/16, SF-61

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$95   

Dated 1937. This is a Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. This is the earlier simple cardboard box with the silver printing. 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. NOTE: there is light bug damage to the the plans (still completely usable) but heavy bug damage to the covering tissue. 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 running single-owner (77 years) model airplane 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.
