Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$22   

The I-185 developed from the I-180, which was a direct descendant of the famous I-16 and I-15 fighters that saw extensive service around the world.

However, Soviet leaders decided not to built it as the standard fighter as the tooling up times would cause delays in getting aircraft to the front. Very nicely molded kit. Never started.

Guillows P-51D Mustang - 27 inch Wingspan for Free Flight or R/C Conversion, 1/16, 402

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$65   

Large scale stick-and-tissue model that is well detailed. Can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using today's small and light servos and receivers. Well detailed with scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform spinner, cowl and exhaust stacks, full color decals, covering tissue, die cut balsa parts, rubber motor, plywood firewall and excellent full size plans. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes 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 manufactures, 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.
