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.

Randolph Hall came to Rochester, NY in 1928 from the Thomas Morse Aircraft Corporation and founded Cunningham-Hall. His first aircraft, the PT-6, was successful and flown by Jimmy Doolittle and Earhart, just to name a few. In 1934 he designed the GA-21, thinking that it would make a nice military trainer and civilian sport aircraft. Changes by 1936 brought it up to the GA-36. The GA-36 was flown successfully through the 1930s but military orders did not develop, probably due to it's cost, which was high in this class. In 1941, the prototype was taken to Michigan, where the engine was removed and the airframe left in a field to rust. In the spring of 1979 the aircraft was returned to Rochester and restoration began. Once complete, she was moved to the Niagara Aerospace Museum.
