Cleveland Boeing P-26A Peashooter Flying Aircraft With Detailing Parts, 1/16, M-60

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$85   

Includes factory sealed William's Brothers #139 1.5" correct main wheels and tires and #136 correct size tail wheel as well as a very old and delicate two-piece light plastic or celluloid engine crankcase that also fits this kit. The actual model is identical to the Cleveland 'SF' or 'Scale Flying' model in museum scale of 1/16. It is simply a later part number. 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 insignia. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Although the box has wear, the kit inside is just like new. 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.

Golden Age Reproductions Peerless Models Fleet Trainer - 22 inch Wingspan for Free Flight or R/C Conversion

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$38   

Reissue of the 1936 Peerless Model Airplane Company Kit. Peerless was not around for long until they were bought out by Cleveland. As a result, Peerless kits are considered rare, so this is an ideal way to obtain a 'builder' model. Golden Age is a high quality company committed to reissuing classic stick and tissue kits and plans from the Golden Age of flying models, the 1930s. Kit are of very high quality and include printwood, strip wood, nose block, plastic propeller, rubber motor, vac wheels, prop shaft, thrust button and bearings, beautiful copies of the original full size plans and covering material. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including instructions.

UPC Kaiwo Maru / Nippon Maru - 1930s Japanese Navy Sailing Training Ship, 1/200, 5019

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$95   

Hard-to find kit of the old Japanese Naval Training Ship. The two sister ships were built in Kobe and launched in 1930. They were both steel four-masted barques carrying royals over double top and topgallant sails. They served as school ships for the Japanese merchant marine. After WWII, they carried demobilized soldiers home, and up to 1951 made dozens of trips to Asia and the Pacific. In 1952, they worked to collect the remains of Japanese war dead from the South Pacific. The ships were replaced in 1989. Very nicely detailed kit in large 1/200 scale. The assembled kit measures about 19 inches long when built. Molded in white, yellow and brown and includes extensive vacuform sails. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

1961 issue in the famous 'Airmail' design box with artwork by J. Tsuchimori.

The straight turbojets have been replaced with the early Jt3D-1 Fanjets, and the vertical fin is higher. Features moving rudder, rotating wheels and Revell's famous 'Globe' stand. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Please note that the box has light paint overspray on the left side as shown and tape residue on the sides, hence the lower 'good' grade.

The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora Grumman F9F Panther Jet, 1/49, 22-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$65   

Dated 1960, but I believe this is actually a later issue due to the 100 cent price extension and no 'Famous Fighters' logo on the short box sides. Molded in a brilliant gloss deep blue and clear with the clear triangle 'World' stand. These molds are from one of Aurora's first two kits - the F9F and F-90. Aurora simply went out and purchased the early Hawk F9F and F-90 kits and copied them almost exactly. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Revell M-50 Ontos - (ex-Renwal), 1/32, 8302

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$22   

1982 Revell reissue of the excellent Renwal kit. Very highly detailed kit including working treads, some interior detail, opening hatches and covers and more. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. NOTE: the box has moisture damage but the kit inside is all in 'excellent' condition. The Ontos was a unique vehicle. Ontos is a Greek word for 'The Thing' and the vehicles lives up to that. Developed along a new concept in mobile warfare, the Ontos has little defense other than movement but a very powerful offensive punch. It carries six 106mm recoilless rifles and .50 caliber spotting rifles. The firing sequence went like this: the crew of three would get out and hand load the six large guns. Then the Ontos would quickly move towards the target. Once sited, the gunner would fire the .50 caliber machines guns until he saw them hit the target - this assured that the 6 big rifles were on target also. At the time, he could fire a full salvo of 6 or in steps of two. The 8.5 ton vehicle would then speed away, moving to a safe location to reload.
