$15   

This kit is either from the original Monogram molds or is a direct part-for-part copy of Monogram's 1/48 kit.

The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. In case you are interested, there is a great short history of the aircraft which reads exactly as follows: 'Among them G=Type, which was rebuilt with equippment of BK 37 machien gun For Obserber and two guns 37mm below two wings to attack tanks, played an active part mainly in Eastern front. The model, with its wing span of 15 m, body length 11.13 m, height 3.84 m, the highest speed 375 km/h, can be assembled keeping it's pilot cabin opened or closed.'

Guillows De Havilland DH-80A Puss Moth - 24 inch Wingspan RC/CL/Rubber Powered Kit, 306

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

$55   

Still factory sealed. Can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using modern small and light servos and receivers. Well detailed with scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform nose/cowl and engine, full color decals, colored tissue, die cut balsa parts, rubber motor, plywood firewall and excellent full size plans. 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.

Monogram Curtiss P-36A - Mini Masterpieces Issue, 1/72, 5014

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$19   

Dated 1989. Another older but excellent kit from original 1967 molds. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The Hawk P-36A has the dubious distinction of fighting on both sides and for more countries than any other plane in history during the opening years of WWII. This Hawk, one in a long progression of famous fighter aircraft, was the winner of a 1935 competition. The USAA Corps received the first aircraft in April of 1938 and the French ordered 100 aircraft in May of the same year. French Hawks shot down just over 30 German planes during the battle for France. The Germans captured the aircraft and sold them to Finland. Others were captured when the Germans overran Norway. In all over 800 Hawks were produced and served in China, Netherlands East Indies, Portugal, Great Britain, Thailand, Argentina and Peru. Although an excellent fighter in 1935, the Hawk was outclassed by the time the war started but when flown properly still gave a good account of itself.
