Cleveland Nieuport 17 Scout Plane - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, M-12

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$75   

Dated 1949. This is a Cleveland Master Scale Flying model in 1/16 museum scale. The box has foxing as shown but the insides are in excellent condition. All Cleveland kits were exceptionally complete and this one is no exception. Features very high quality balsa printwood and strip wood, wood stock as required, completely machine carved cowl/engine, fully formed and painted scale wooden wheels, fully formed thrust bearing and rubber motor retainer, metal stock, clear windshield celluloid, several sheets of color insignia including an instrument panel, rigging thread, two colors of covering material, highest quality plans and more. The model has not been started. The parts have been inventoried 100% complete with all paperwork included. Plans are in 'excellent' condition. 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.

Guillows Fairchild 24 - 25 inch Wingspan for Free Flight or R/C Conversion, 701

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$22   

From 1993 and a reissue of the famous 1960s flier. Large and well engineered stick and tissue model can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using modern small and light servos and receivers. Nicely detailed with scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform nose/cowl and engine, full color decals, colored tissue, die cut balsa parts, rubber motor, plywood firewall and excellent full size plans. The model has not been started. The parts are either still in the factory sealed bag or inventoried complete. Guillow's founder, Paul K. Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.

Peck-Polymers Baby Ace King Of The Homebuilts - 17.5 Inch Wingspan Walnut Scale Flying Aircraft, Peanut, PP-15

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$22   

From 1977. Peck-Polymers is a manufacture of high quality stick and tissue models. The Baby Ace is a beautiful scale model that can be flown on rubber power or CO2. It features contest quality printwood, nylon thrust bearing, colored tissue, full size plans and building instructions, plastic propeller, fully formed wheels, hardware packet, die-cut plywood firewall and contest rubber. The model has not been started. The small parts are still in factory sealed bag and the larger parts have been inventoried complete with all the paperwork. I believe that Peanut scale is rubber powered models that have less than a 13 inch wingspan. I believe Walnut scale is for models with more than 13 but less than 19 inch wingspans.
