Cleveland Ryan FR-1 Fireball - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-92
Cleveland Ryan FR-1 Fireball - Balsa Flying Model Airplane Kit, 1/16, SF-92
Exc   Wood   old
$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. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or 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 running single-owner (77 years) model airplane supply 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.

Hawk Howard Ike Air Racer - One Piece Box Issue 1949, 1/48, 602
Hawk Howard Ike Air Racer - One Piece Box Issue 1949, 1/48, 602
Exc   Injection Molded   old
$65

Rare early one piece box issue from the 1949. Hawk was a very innovative model company that went into business in the 1920s with model aircraft made from wood with metal detail parts. Hawk also made ship and train models in this fashion. It is thought that the first injection molded aircraft kits in the United States were made by Varney in 1946, but they did not catch on quickly. Hawk was always an innovative and quality-driven company, and they took a gamble on injection molded kit well before they were popular. As early as 1946 they issued the 1/48 Curtiss R3C-1 with wheels. This may have been the first plastic airplane kit in the USA. Like Varney's Fleet Sub and PT-17, they were shunned by hobby dealers. Hawk persisted with the 'Evolution of the Jet' gift set in 1948. In 1948, they also issued the four racer kits - the Supermarine S6B, Gee-Bee, Howard Ike and Laird all in Acetate. The F-84G and Constellation were also issued but were the first Hawk kits molded in polystyrene. All were in the two-tone one-piece flip box or straight one piece box with opening ends like this one. This is the 1949 polystyrene issue. This model is molded in the correct glossy white with a unique early stand. The model was issued with instructions but did not come with decals. The instructions tell you that 'All license numbers are gold outlined in black'. The kit has never been started. The contents have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

Sealed Exc++   Injection Molded   old
$65

Still sealed with the factory tape on both long ends. 1960s Aurora of Great Britain issue with brilliant box art. Kit contains large 1/8 scale knight, base, plume and instructions. In the mid 1950s, Aurora bought three 'Knight' molds from Crown Plastics and issued them as K1, K2 and K3. These were the very first Aurora figure kits and they sported the 1956-only rectangular 'Northern Lights' logo with the correct 'Crown Line' logo inside it. The sales success of the Knight prompted Aurora to launch an entire line of figure kits. The knights themselves stayed in production long after many other figures were discontinued.

NM   Injection Molded   old

The legendary Stormovik gave the Germans nothing but trouble on the Eastern Front. Designed as a heavily armed single seat or dual seat attack aircraft, the Stormovik was very difficult to shoot down; even then if the pilot could crash land it, he had an excellent chance of walking away and flying again the next day. Il-2M3s endlessly attacked German forward and rear positions effectively and in large numbers till the end of the war. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
