Cleveland SE-5A Scout Balsa Flying Model Airplane, 1/16, SF-9

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$95   

This is a Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. This is an early issue in a cardboard box with 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 some 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), 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.

California Model Co Featherette Microfilm Indoor Airplane - 18 inch Wingspan Airplane for Class B Competition

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

$65   

Probably from the 1940s. Stick and tissue flying model kit to a constant 1/16 scale with very nice quality. Made by California Model Company out of Long Beach, CA USA. Kit uses rubber for power. Features required wooden parts, instructions and full size plans. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. From Bill Baker Jr - "California Model Company originated in Long Beach, Calif in the late 1940's or early 1950's. My grandparents, William (Bill) Loyal Baker and his wife, Ruth (Tripp) Baker were the founders. The company started out as primarily balsa based model aircraft but later, in the late 50's or early 60's, branched into the model RR craft kits and Cub Scout craft kits. They even had a balsa speed boat kit powered by a model airplane gas engine adapted to fit. When they retired, around 1968 or 1969, they sold the business and the "shop" in North Long Beach they built to house their business. I have many fond memories as a young child "working" with them in the shop, assembling kits. I have a few unbuilt kits today!"

Siedlce Bocian Glider, 1/72

Air Lines DH-88 Comet Racer - (ex Frog), 1/72, 4901

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$29   

From about 1965 and finely molded for that time in silver and clear plastic. Features separately molded ailerons, elevators and rudder, two pilots and two standing figures. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Box art is by the famous Jo Kotula who did 1930s covers for the magazine 'Model Airplane News' and later the Aurora box art of the late 1950s. Air Lines kits are all Frog molds that the Lines Brothers imported to the USA between 1964-1966. The kits, decals and instructions were made in England, then imported to the USA where Testors created the boxes with the colorful trading cards on the back. There are one or two trading cards on each box which show the boxart but not the advertising/logo. Some kits contain a Testors color painting guide also, but it is not specific to any model.

Sankyo Sankyo SR Single Servo 'Carry' / OS Minitron Escapement / Receiver / Perfect Gas Tank / Kato Model Aircraft 110 CC Clunk Tank (TWO) and Kato 240 CC Clunk Tank Antique R/C Parts - All NOS

Other Materials,   Box Condition: VG+

$65   

Most likely from the late 1950s or very early 1960s. Includes all seven item in mint, NOS condition. Never used. The SR 'Singl Servo Carry' is still in the original factory clear bag and packing material. The OS Escapement is still in the factory clear bag and packing material. The other escapement box appears to contain an NOS receiver - that is my guess since it has a significant antenna. The Perfect gas tank is the #23 Long Senior Wedgetank with a 2 oz capacity; this is a soldered metal tank. The three 'Clunk Tanks' are all new in the box. I believe they are fuel bottles.

Comet Boeing B-47 Stratojet, 1/205, PL-22

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$89   

Rare kit from the 1950s. One-piece flip top box with early 39 cent price extension. Nicely molded in glossy silver and clear plastic with all recessed panel lines. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. It even includes the famous Comet catalog mail order envelope. Comet originally began model production in 1929 with a line of balsa flying models. In the mid-1950s Comet made a beautiful line of small and medium scale aircraft and missile models with colorful boxes. The early issues were in one-piece 'flip-top' boxes, and the later issues and releases were in standard two-piece 'hardboxes' with a lithograph slick glued to the top box. In 1963 Comet sold the plastic kit molds to Aurora, who reissued some but not all of the kits.

Aurora Sopwith Camel, 1/48, 102-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$46   

Still factory sealed. This is the 4th known issue of this classic kit, and the second one to share the 102-100 kit number. The blue oval logo dates from the early 1960s. This is only the second box artwork used for this kit, and John Steel replaced Cox for the 'new look' from Aurora. This is part of the famous Aurora WWI series of 1/48 scale aircraft. The series began in 1956 and Aurora added new kits into the early 1960s. The line proved incredibly popular, so these kits were included in the 'mold upgrade' in the 1970s before Aurora went out of business.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Aurora Convair F-102 Dart - (YF-102 Delta Dagger), 1/121, 290-39

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$52   

Hardbox issue dated 1957, but from the mid 1960s due to the oval logo with the blue outline. Small scale kit with dramatic Jo Kotula box artwork is nicely molded with clear canopy, full landing gear and display stand. This is a model of the very early YF-102 prototype with the straight (non-area rule) fuselage. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Around this time, Aurora issued a series of inexpensive (usually 29 cent) small scale kits that were designed to sell at almost any type of retail location. The line was successful and further expanded - when Aurora purchased the Comet molds, they fit in nicely with this established line.
