Cleveland 1938 Turner-Laird 'Pesco Special' Racer - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-72

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


This is a Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. This is an early cardboard box issue with silver printing. All Cleveland kits were very complete and this one is no exception. Features very high quality balsa printwood and strip wood, covering material, pre-carved nose, partially machined wheel pants, finished wheels, ready to use prop blades, markings to convert the aircraft to teh 1939 race winner, highest quality plans, and more. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. NOTE: there is light bug damage to the papwerwork. 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.

Hawk 1902 Rambler Model C Runabout - Highway Classics, 1/24, 634-60

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Rare kit dated 1964. Hawk did not issue many automobile kits, but when they did they chose interesting subjects. 1/24 scale and molded in silver plastic with black wheels. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including instructions. This is a very early car with an interesting history. The 1902 Rambler was the first car offered for sale by the Thomas B. Jeffery Company. This later became Nash Motors, which was then later purchased to become part of American Motors. The Model C had a one cylinder 8 HP engine and could speed along at 25 mph. Originally it had wire wheels, but these proved too fragile for the state of roads in the very early 1900s - the company soon changed these to wooden spoke wheels, which are represented on this model. The car had tiller steering and brakes on the rear wheel only. And this kit has a very interesting history also! The molds were originally cut by Kaysun in Japan @ 1954. The kits were a huge advance over the 'Highway Miniatures' and if put side to side put the Revell offerings to shame. I do not know of other kits from Kaysun beyond the two cars. Later in the 1950s Strombecker purchased these molds and issued them in very colorful boxes. However, Strombecker discontinued all plastic kit production in the late 1950s. In 1964 Hawk somehow located these molds. Always with an eye to quality, the Mates brothers knew these were perfect kits for their expanding line of models. The called the Rambler and Hupmobile 'Highway Classics' and issued them in full color boxes that sported photos of the actual built models. There were at least three issues; one at 50 cents, one at 60 cents and one with a special case. However good the kit, the subject matter simply did not catch on and eventually the kits were withdrawn from the line. Polks Hobby Modelcraft found and purchased the molds in 1982 but did not issue the kits. In 1988 Mandrill Manufacturing purchased the Strombecker molds and it is possible these two Kaysun kits is among them.
