Lindberg La Flore French Sailing Ship 1771, 1/48, 817-298

The Lindberg history tells of the La Flore's 1771 voyage on a historical naval astronomy expedition. On this voyage were three members of the Marine Academy and the Royal Academy of Science along with two naval time pieces and a variety of other scientific instruments. The voyage proved beyond any doubt the value of chronometers in sea navigation. But there is more history than that. Earlier 'The Flore' took part in the Battle of Quiberon Bay in 1759. Later in 1761 she was captured by HMS Unicorn and became part of the Royal Navy; the British gave her the name HMS Flora. The British scuttled the ship off Rhode Island in August of 1778 to avoid capture by the colonists. The enterprising Yankees re-floated the Flore in 1780, repaired her, and sold her back to the French Navy in 1784. The French re-named the ship 'American Flore.' Under the French flag again, she took parts in the Senegal campaigns starting in 1788. The HMS Phaeton captured Flore on September 7, 1798, and she was sold for scrap value.

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

A very nice kit featuring die cut balsa parts, die-cut plywood firewall, completely finished wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform nose, rubber motor, hardware, clear window material, very large decal sheet, colored tissue 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 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.
