These aircraft were common in the 1930s when the sport of free-flight model airplanes reached it's zenith. It was not uncommon for these models to fly for 45 minutes or more on rubber power alone - many flew out of site, and it became common practice to write your name, address and phone number on the covering tissue.

Cleveland Douglas SBD Dauntless - Balsa Flying Aircraft, 1/16, SF-89

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair++

Sold   

This is a Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. All Cleveland kits were exceptionally complete and this one is no exception. Features very high quality balsa wood, covering material, decals, highest quality plans, all parts required for assembly, pre-fabricated propeller blades, covering tissue, fully formed wooden wheels and more. There has been no assembly but NOTE: fuselage bulkheads and a few ribs have been cut out to 'professional' quality. These look so good, you would think that a CNC machine cut them. The quality is remarkable. It appears that 2 or 3 sheets of the printwood were cut out this way; the other 6 sheets of printwood are intact as are all other parts. Inventoried and NOTE: missing (1) R15 rib and (1)B11 bulkhead; both parts are easily made since one each of these parts is still present in the kit. There is plenty of original scrap balsa for making them. Otherwise includes all other parts, small sealed parts bag and plans. 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.
