Guillows Aeronca Champion 85 - 24 inch Wingspan for Free Flight or R/C Conversion, 301

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$48   

From 1961. Large scale well detailed kit. Can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using modern small and light servos and receivers. Features quality die-cut balsa parts, stripwood and spars, excellent vacuform full engine cowl, scale wheels, thrust button, clear window material, rubber motor, plastic prop, metal stock and prop shaft, diecut plywood firewall for gas engine option, big decal sheet and two sheets of superb full size plans and detailed instructions. Never started and complete. 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.

Orange Crush-Revell 1910 Cadillac Limousine, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair++

$62   

Very rare kit with a fascinating history. Around 1958/59, Orange Crush of Mexico offered a promotion. They offered free, colorful, plastic model cars if you collected correctly-marked Orange Crush bottle caps. The models are 1/32 scale Revell Highway Pioneer series - although there is no mention of Revell or Lodela anywhere on the box. Orange Crush had the boxes and even the instructions specially made for them with no mention of a manufacturer. They were never given numbers. The boxes were very thin and fragile cardboard. This has contributed to wear and you must be very cautious with them. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bag and the instructions are sealed in the bag as well. You could redeem your caps two ways - at the Orange Crush truck and at a Modelandia Hobby House. The box sides show the 18 cars in the series. Orange Crush also released two full-color booklets and a complete paint set for the cars. A colorful cardboard box held 7 colors of paint in glass bottles, complete with 'Orange Crush' screw-on caps! The entire promotion was done in coordination with Modelandia Hobby House which had up to 19 stores. Modelandia's name appears on each of the boxes and the paint as well. Robina S.A. was the bottler or distributor of Orange Crush in Mexico at that time. The box side lists the other 18 kits with small color pictures of each and shows three sizes of OC - Family Size (Familiar), Grand (Grande) and Normal. You could also obtain models with Titan bottle caps. Titan was also bottled by Robina and came in large (Titan) and smaller (Titancito) sizes and apparently more than one flavor. We do not know how Orange Crush had access to the plastic kits or who sealed the internal bags with the Crush instructions inside them. We can assume that it may have been Lodela, since they would have had access to the Revell molds. It is not know for how long the promotion lasted, but Orange Crush was one of the most dominant soft drinks in Mexico at that time. Here is one clue: some boxes claim that Modelandia had 13 locations; other boxes, which obviously came later on, claim 19 locations. This may indicate that this promotion went on for a significant amount of time.

Dolphin Capellini Italian Navy Submarine Marcello Class, 1/400, D012

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$54   

Very rare. Beautifully cast resin kit with numerous cast metal details, many photoetched parts, options for waterline or full hull and even a display stand. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions. CAppellini was a very successful Italian Navy submarine with a very interesting war record. She was started in Le Spezia on April 25, 1938 and launched on May 14, 1939. The Regio Marina took delivery of her on September 23, 1939. After training and working up, Cappellini left for her first war patrol with Captain Cristiano Masi for the Atlantic. The patrol did not go well; she was sighted at least twice and the British destroyer Vidette fired torpedoes at the submarine, which missed. But the Cappellini failed to score and eventually went to a Spanish Harbor then to La Spezia. The Navy changed commanders, putting Corvette Captain Salvatore Todaro in charge and this seemed to make a big difference. He navigated the Straight of Gibraltar submerged on Sept. 29 and broke out into the Atlantic. She sank the armed vessel Kabalo with torpedoes and used guns to sink the British merchant Shakespeare. On January 14 she sunk the British auxiliary cruiser Eumaeus after a long two hour battle involving both torpedoes and guns. On another mission in April of 1941, Todaro attacked two large vessels and sank one. Command changed for the next voyage to Lieutenant Aldo Lenzi and he proved as brave as Todaro, sinking the British Miguel de Larrinaga with two torpedoes near the Azores. Lieutenant Marco Revedin commanded Cappellini next, sinking the merchant vessel Tisnaren and the tanker Dinsdale. On Sept 13 she took part in the search for survivors from the Laconia, which U-156 had sunk. She rescued many survivors but naturally had little room for them; Revedin call the French and they too the survivors to shore. In may of 1943, Cappellini was converted into a 'carriage' submarine for cargo and placed under Captain Walter Auconi; she left for Singapore and arrived on July 10th and was given the new name Aquila III. According to official reports, the submarine was so overloaded that she was hardly buoyant; only the tip of the bow and part of the conning tower were above the water. After avoiding many air attackers, she did arrive safely but with completely dry fuel tanks. After unloading cargo Cappellini went to Sebang as planned to meet the submarine Giuliani. But with the situation in Italy in flux, the Japanese made various excuses and seized the submarine. The put the crew in a POW camp. And handed the submarine over to the Germans as UIT-24. However, some of the enlisted men in the POW camp decided to fight alongside the Germans and a mixed crew was formed with Oberleutnant-zur-See Heinrich Pahls as commander. She had five patrols like this until Germany surrendered; at that point the Japanese took her over again and assigned the name I-503. She operated that way until the end of the war. The Cappellini was eventually captured by the United States and sank in the deep waters off Kobe on April 16th, 1946.
