Zvezda Russian Battleship Borodino, 1/350, 9027

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$34   

From modern molds. Full hull model is very nicely molded and detailed with 356 parts. Never started and has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Borodino was the lead ship of a class of pre-dreadnought battleships built for the Imperial Russian Navy. She was finished after the start of the Russo-Japanese war in 1904. After completion she was sent with a squadron from Libau to break the Japanese blockade of Port Arthur, but while in transit the Japanese occupied the port. The Second Pacific Squadron sailed instead to Vladivostok, the last Russian port in the far east. After a very long voyage and numerous delays, the Japanese certainly knew they were coming and set up for battle to cut the Russians off at Tsushima Strait. Borodino saw action at Tsushima early on. After taking serious damage, the Russians were not interested in further battle and around 1700 they turned away from Japanese cruisers- but ran into the Japanese battleships again. 10 minutes later Togo ordered his ship to cease fire and disengage; the battleship Fuji had already loaded her 12" guns and fired them before the turn away. One of these shells hit Borodino under her starboard 6 inch turret, which started a fire in the ready ammunition that quickly spread to a 6" magazine. This caused a chain reaction and massive magazine explosions. Only one man survived from a crew of 855.

Lindberg Nautilus Atomic Submarine by Paul Lindberg, 704

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$89   

Rare first issue hardbox with script Lindberg logo. In the 1930s, Paul Lindberg was designing, building and flying stick and tissue aircraft like so many other men and boys of the time. His plans appear in Popular Aviation magazine and he made a good name for himself. When injection molding showed the way to increased kits sales in the late 1940s/early 1950s, he quickly teamed up with Mr. Olsen to create 'O-lin' models. Ray Gaedke was one the early artists for O-lin. In the early 1950s Paul Lindberg had control and had his name as the logo. The first logo is the one on this kit - 'Lindberg' in script with 'Products' arched across the top and 'Incorporated' arched across the bottom to create a broken circle around the script. Ray Gaedke continued his bold and colorful artwork for Lindberg, such as the box painting for the Nautilus here. The Nautilus appears to be the first sea vessel that Lindberg cut it's own molds for - the Chris Craft Express Cruiser, PT Boat, LST and Fleet Submarine (Ex-Varney) were done by O-lin. The model is an interesting work of fact and fiction - it includes a deck gun and what looks like a Regulus II missile for the deck! The scale is not known but it measures about 12 inches long when assembled. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Cleveland Wedell's 1933 Wedell-Williams Racer - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-47

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$95   

Older issue in the cardboard box with 'Cleveland World Famous Models' printed in silver. From the late 1930s/1940s. 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. Please NOTE there is light bug damage to some paperwork. 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 running single-owner (77 years) model airplane 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.
