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.

Aurora The Hartford - Admiral Farragut's Flagship at Mobile Bay, 1/115, 441-600

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$255   

1966 issue. The Hartford was the flagship of Rear Admiral David Farragut. In the Hartford he lead the Union Fleet to capture the Confederate forts guarding Mobile Bay, the only part of the Gulf Coast still in Confederate hands. In this long battle Farragut scored one of the key naval victories of the war. Very large and well detailed kit. Measures over 2 feet long and features metal anchor chain, running and standing rigging and molded ratlines and sails. The kit has never been started. All gray and black parts are still in the factory sealed bags. The white parts were never factory sealed but have been inventoried complete. The brown parts bag had a split so I opened it and did an inventory and NOTE: missing (1) part, the martingale ('spike' down from the bowsprit). I have included a properly tapered yard of good size from a built Hartford so you can reproduce this part and build the model. Includes instructions, rigging materials and flag sheet.

Superb large-scale model of this beautiful off-shore oil exploration boat built by Halter Marine, Inc. Features all die-cut hardwood and plywood parts, plank-on-frame construction, complete deck fittings, full size plan, detailed text instructions and even a Dumas Running Hardware Set #2332. Although it says it is for the 'Dauntless, ' it was standard procedure for Dumas to denote one part number of running set to a large number of kits. The kit has never been started. Many of the parts are still factory sealed. The ones that were not have been inventoried complete with the instructions and plans. NOTE: Unless you specify otherwise, this kit will ship in the very sturdy white packing box that it came in. If you wish, I can repack it in another box. If so, additional shipping fees will be required.

No other assembly. The flat hull glass windows have glue marks and smears; I have included them but also included plenty of thick plastic clear stock. You can easily duplicate these windows as they are simply flat clear parts. Just cut then bigger than the hull window openings and glue to the inside.

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.

Hard-to find kit of the old Japanese Naval Training Ship. The two sister ships were built in Kobe and launched in 1930.

$69

This is the second version of this kit and the last issue to retain the 'Revelving' clear globe base that the "S" issue kits had. As a bonus it includes the trading stamp for this kit as well.

Revell DC-7 Flagship American Airlines One-Piece Stand Arm Pre-S Issue, 1/122, H219-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$165   

Rare, true first issue dated 1955 with the correct Pre-S fantastic artwork of a DC-7 at the moment just before touchdown. Please note, this is the correct first release with the one-piece plastic stand arm and instructions that illustrate this. There is even a rarer factory rubber stamp on the instructions to correct step one! Also, the main gear axles are separate parts on this issue. On the second issues the gear struts were modified and the axles were moved to the wheels, and the stand arm was changed to two plastic parts because the one-piece stand arm was fragile and in use it broke easily. Very few were made as Revell quickly corrected this weakness. Correctly molded in gloss silver and clear and a large, colorful decal sheet. Inside, the kit has never been started. Inside, the kit is exactly as it left the factory with all small parts still factory sealed in the 'krinkle' clear bag and the larger parts not sealed and inventoried complete. Instructions are 'excellent' with the detailed American Airlines route map on the back. Decals are 'excellent' also and flat with no curl and light yellowing. The box has a tear as shown, clear tape on the long sides and general wear as shown. All four corners are solid and original and the color and gloss are excellent.

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.
