Lindberg Junkers Ju-87B Stuka Dive Bomber, 1/48, 524-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

Investment-grade 'Near Mint' condition kit with fantastic color and gloss. The only flaws are very, very light wear. Late 1950s hardbox issue with Ray Gaedke box artwork. Molded in correct gloss medium green and clear, with the futuristic Lindberg 'V' shaped clear stand. For it's time, this was an excellent kit with fine panel and rivet detail. Features crew of two and seats, separately molded rudder and flap/ailerons, four small wing load bombs and a center bomb with 'swing arm' so that it would clear the prop in a dive. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Thanks to Dusty Rhodes for this information: The markings with this model, A5+HL, are from a -B2 (Trop.) captured intact in North Africa, 1941 and shipped to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. It is still there today (2020). This may very well be the aircraft that Lindberg Skokie-based designers examined as a basis for this model.

Cleveland Spad XIII Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, M-13

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

This is a Cleveland Master Kit 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, fully carved cowl/engine, completely formed hardwood wheels, thrust bearing and rubber retainer, clear celluloid for the windshield, metal stock, four sheets of color insignia including the instrument panel with gauges, rigging threat, covering material, 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.
