Guillows Sopwith Camel - 28 inch Wingspan Flying Model, 801

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Big-scale kit can be built for static display or flown .049 to .15 U-Control, gas free flight or rubber power.

Includes full size detailed plans. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Guillow's founder, Paul K. Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.

Monogram Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet - Pan Am Airlines (ex-Aurora Modified Molds), 1/156, 5412

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


1978 issue after Monogram bought Aurora's molds. Monogram only reissued the best and most commercially viable models. The Jumbo fell into that category but only after Monogram highly modified it for accuracy. The result is one of the better early 747-100 kits kit in (very near) 1/144 scale. First, Monogram did a massive fix on the fuselage where the wing mates to it. This may have resulted in a completely new mold for the fuselage! They made the fuselage smooth - no windows. Next were added very, very fine raised panel lines to all surfaces, some recessed panel lines (like leading edge slats) and also added flap hinge covers (fairings) to the lower wings. Contains greatly improved, full, excellent Pan Am and window decals. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
