This is the Pocher kit with the Testors/Pocher label. In 1986 Pininfarina created this very special Spider on the basis of the Ferrari Testarossa. By strengthening the chassis, cutting the roof and modifying the trunk the car was given a unique appearance of a very luxury Spider. Very few of this special Testarossa were made. Pocher chose to create this model for it's 25th Anniversary. Although Poacher is no longer in business, they are acknowledged as the finest car model makers ever.

Every detail of the suspension, interior, engine and truck are recreated in this magnificent model. The kit is in 1/8 scale and measures 56 cm (over 22 inches long) when built. The steering works, the doors, hood and trunk open and close, headlights open and retract and much, much more. The body and all body panels are metal - the balance of the kit is metal and injection molded plastic and a number of other materials such as flexible wires for the ignition, clear parts, real rubber tires, etc. The kit has never been started and is complete. Inside, it is like new. The parts that were factory bag sealed are still sealed. The parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete.

Cleveland Hawker Hurricane Mk.IIc - Balsa Flying Aircraft, SF-78

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$75   

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). NOTE: two wing ribs have been cut from a sheet. There is no other cutting and no assembly. 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.
