Kobo-Hiryu IJN Survey Ship Katsuriki 1942, 1/700, R03

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+


Very rare limited production model of this IJN Auxiliary. Very well detailed resin waterline model that includes full illustrated instructions and even a painting guide. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags. The Katsuriki had a very interesting and long career. She was originally completed in 1917 as minelayer, and the first ocean going ship of this type in the Japanese Navy. In WWI she served around the Japanese home islands. In the 1920s she was guardship off many of the the South Pacific Mandate Islands and began doing survey work of these new Japanese territories. With expansionist policies already in place, the need for a specialized survey ship was obvious and in 1935 she was converted to that role. The minelaying equipment was removed and surveying devices from the retired survey ship Manshu were installed. She took part in much intelligence gathering off the coast of China, then examined future targets for the Imperial Navy before WWII. Some areas she visited included the Spratly Islands, Kwajalein in the Marshall Islands, and surveyed and Tarawa in the Gilbert Islands. When World War II started, Katsuriki was re-designated a 'secret military vessel' on 20 July 1942, although her mission was still maritime surveying. She mapped the coasts of the Strait of Malacca, Burma, Singapore, the Dutch East Indies and north coast of New Guinea in support of Japanese troop landings and combat operations. On 21 September 1944 Katsukiki was torpedoed by USS Haddo southwest of Manila and sank. The Haddo spotted about 40 survivors and attempted to rescue, but the Japanese chose to drown themselves.

Aurora Boeing B-29 Superfortress, 1/76, 372-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++


Rare 1960s issue retaining the same artwork as the 1956 issue. This is likely the 4th issue. I believe the 3rd issue is almost identical but has "Famous Fighters" in the oval logo. That would date this kit as 1963 and up till the 'Big A' box issue. Note the square 'Northern Lights' logo has been replaced with the Aurora sunburst oval logo. This kit has arguably the most dramatic and fanciful B-29 artwork from the 'Golden Era' of modeling. The box is in excellent condition. There are no split corner and no repairs. Responding to market information that boys wanted larger kits, Aurora introduced the B-26 followed by the B-29 and B-25, all of which sold well for many years. Missing stand. Never started. Otherwise complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Cleveland Douglas O-38 Observation - Balsa Flying Aircraft, 1/16, SF-43

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Rare. This is a Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. The kit came from a long time collector of 1930s and 1940s models and is in exceptional condition. 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. 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.
