Air Lines Miles Master (Ex-Frog), 1/72, 4904

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG-

$22   

Very finely molded in silver. Features separately molded ailerons, elevators and rudder. This kit has never been started. NOTE: missing one strut brace which can be made from scratch. Otherwise inventoried with all parts, decals and instructions. Box art is by the famous Jo Kotula who did 1930s covers for the magazine 'Model Airplane News' and later the Aurora box art of the late 1950s. Air Lines kits are all Frog molds that the Lines Brothers imported to the USA between 1964-1966. The kits, decals and instructions were made in England, then imported to the USA where Testors created the boxes with the colorful trading cards on the back. There are one or two trading cards on each box which show the boxart but not the advertising/logo. Some kits contain a Testors color painting guide also, but it is not specific to any model.

The model includes real rubber tires, chrome plated parts, colored injection molded parts and clear parts. Features detailed chassis with suspension, steering linkage and gas tank, complete motor and interior, spoked wheels, removable hood and dual mount rear spares. The kit has never been started.

Aurora Black Knight of Nurnberg 1580 - Crown Issue, 1/8, K3-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$185   

In the mid 1950s, Crown Plastics advertised the release of a series of Knight models - some of the very first figure kits. However, before Crown entered production, Aurora marketed the line for Crown in 1956. The box side rectangular 'Northern Lights' Aurora logo has the 'Crown' logo incorporated into it, as does the logo on the instructions. The 'Crowns' were the first Aurora Knights ever issued, Aurora's very first figures kits, and Aurora gave them the kit numbers K1-98, K2-98 and K3-98. The knights sold well, and Aurora bought the three 'Knight' molds from Crown Plastics within the year. The kit is 100% correct down to the red and white plums. Inside, the plastic parts are mint. The kit has never been started. The gloss black plastic parts are still sealed in the factory bag. The instructions are correct with the Crown logo in the Aurora logo. The two plumes are in very good condition, which is rare.

Aurora 1904 Curved Dash Olds (Oldsmobile) - 'Old Timers - Famous Cars of All Times' Issue, 1/16, 576-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$149   

Still factory sealed. 1963 issue in fantastic condition. Well detailed, large 1/16 scale kit. Molded in black, chrome, red and with real rubber tires. Aurora was renowned for turning a profit and for keeping expenses down. In researching new kit subjects, they came upon a forgotten jewel - the Hudson Miniatures line of 1/16 scale wooden kits. Hudson had discontinued this line due to lack of sales of wooden kits. But the Hudson models were second to none in quality, research and documentation. Aurora was quick to realize this and used the research and layout from these kits to create the subjects for this 'Old Timers' series. It is fortunate for us that they did, because in most cases this is the only injection molded kit of these rare and classic early automobiles.

Cleveland Howard's Pete Racer - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-18

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.

Revell Olds Delivery Van Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H44

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$44   

1953 early issue molded in white plastic and it includes colorful decals for the van sides for the 'Gowland's Bakery'. This kit has never been started. All parts are still factory sealed in the original 'krinkle' bag and it is complete with decals and instructions. Before the 1950s 'model building' never made the top 10 list of boy's activities. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream. Shortly after the turn of the century, many dedicated modelers built flying or static airplanes, ship, train, automotive or other subjects. Basic kits existed, but the majority of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s. The phenomenon of the Revell/Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' car kits was a significant force in proving that model building as a hobby could have mass appeal, provided that the kits were easy enough to build and finish. These 1/32 scale vehicles could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real car. The Highway Pioneers series lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys.
