Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: Good-
'Master' issue in the agreed museum scale of 1/16. 33 3/4 inch wingspan. Idea for conversion to electric power and RC. Very highly detailed and complete kit for it's time. Features high quality printwood, stripwood, center drilled nacelle blocks, all other blocks as required, spars, clear window material, very large and highly detailed full size plans and more. Please note this is the wartime issue and does not have paint bottles. 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.
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG
Very rare and in amazing condition. All original, one owner promo obtained new in 1967 by a discriminating collector. Features brilliant deep red color and red-line tires. Color and gloss are like new, as is the chrome, clear and tires. Complete with all parts. Although I can't imagine how it could be better, I'll grade it 9.8 out of 10 as I hesitate to call anything perfect. The box is old and of the original style but it is not stamped on the end like the factory did; for that reason I presume it is not original to the model.

Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good
From 1960. NOTE: kit is 100% complete but has minor (6 parts neat assembly so please read carefully. This model is the zenith of the ITC Design and Engineering Team, and maybe of all operational plastic model kits. It is not only rare but is considered the most complicated operating model ever produced. The large 24.75 inch submarine sails from the power of a large electric motor driving twin geared propellers. It changes headings, dives, surfaces, and a Regulus II missile comes out of the hanger and launches...all automatically. The engineering on this kit is fantastic and a major break-through for that time. The model worked, and did work well, but was certainly not a toy for inexperienced model builders. The high price ($9.98) and difficulties that youngsters had with assembly and operation made for a short production run. The fact the ITC left the model business for good shortly after releasing the kit contributed to the scarcity as well. The boxtop displays much better than the 'good' grade; I have graded it 'good' because the box has clear tape on it, split corners, a taped closed tear of 2.5" on one long side and general wear as shown. Molded in the correct white and red, with numerous metal shaft, chain, screws and the correct motor. Inside, the kit is in very good condition but NOTE: it has neat, minor assembly. The main batter cover, battery contact and wire have been assembled. It was adult done to 'professional' quality. On the top inner hull, parts 11, 16 and 14 are installed, to 'excellent+ to professional' quality. A very small 1/2" x 1/4" (1.3 x .6 cm) clear panel is installed on the underside center of the lower hull - the work done is 'excellent++' and it is watertight. There is no other assembly. The kit has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts present and decals (stickers) and instructions. Stickers and instructions are in 'near mint' condition. The factory internal packing cardboard is complete and in 'excellent+' condition as shown. NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured.
