Mr Hobby RMS Lusitania With Two Gold Medal Models PE Detail Sets - (ex-Revell / Entex / Gunze Sangyo /Anmark, 1/350, G401-7000

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$195   

Comes with Gold Metal Models photoetched brass "Gold Plus Detail Set For 1/350 Lusitania and Titanic' and the large "1/350 Merchant Ship Titanic and Lusitania" set. Both sets have never been used and are complete with all parts and instructions. The actual kit is older but highly detailed, full hull and measures over 28 inches long when assembled and includes a display base. The kit has never assembled but NOTE: all portholes have been neatly drilled out with the proper size drill bits. This is a big task that takes many hours; all work is done to 'excellent' or better standards. There is no other work done. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: the box top mentions some PE accessories, but none are present and none are shown on the instructions. Perhaps the included two sets from GMM were what Mr. Hobby included? Regardless, the two included GMM sets are superior and more complete than anything Mr. Hobby would have included.

MPM Kawanishi N1K1 'Shinden' George, 1/72, 72123

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$20   

Kit features fine, all recessed panel line detail, many photoetched parts and decals for four aircraft. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. During construction of the NiK1 Kyofu (Strong Wind) float plane, the design team at Kawanishi did a study of converting that aircraft to a land-based fighter. The design seemed very promising, but the Japanese Navy rejected it. Kawanishi decided to privately fund the building of prototypes regardless. The aircraft flew and flew well, but the navy was unimpressed as they ordered the J2M Raiden into production. Kawanishi, undaunted, built four additional prototypes. The IJN was finally won over, and funds were released to produce the fighter. Production problems were solved in time for the Shiden (Violet Lightning) to see action before the end of the war, but not in significant numbers to change the tide. The Shiden was an excellent aircraft, but a modified version, NiK2-J may have been the finest Japanese Naval fighters of the war.

Top Flite DC-3 Gold Edition - 82.5 Inch Wingspan RC Aircraft - Eastern or C-47 Markings, 1/14, TOPA0500

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$179   

Very large RC 1/14 Sport Scale Airplane. The Golden Era of Aviation Eastern Air Lines replica is IMAA Legal with a fully-sheeted fuselage and wingspan of 82.5". The original airplane was designed for commercial passenger travel, and some still fly today. This is a great introduction into building and flying a scale twin-engined kit. Features excellent flying characteristics; because of the engine angle and modified aerodynamics, this kit flies extremely well, even on one engine. (Most models of the DC-3 will go inverted and crash.) The kit is primarily wood and precision-formed ABS (tail cone, engine nacelles, wing fairings, and cockpit top). An interlocking fuselage frame builds flat on the plans and the large round fuselage requires very little carving or shaping. Can be built with split-flaps and the scale aerodynamic "Balance Tab" rudder which uses the air deflection to help turn the plane. Includes Eastern Air Lines and Optional Military C-47 decals. The kit has never been started and is factory new inside. All small parts are still factory sealed. All other parts are still in the factory rubber band bundles and have been inventoried complete including decals, great instructions and plans. NOTE: unless you specify otherwise, the kit will be shipped in the box shown. There will be an additional charge to pack and ship it in another box.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor

$58   

NOTE: builder or parts kit only, please read carefully. Rare, Brooklyn-produced early 1950s U-Ma-Kit. This was Aurora's first naval model. Molded in the correct glossy very dark gray plastic.

Cleveland Howard's 1935 Mr. Mulligan Racer - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-52

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$175   

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. 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.
