Life-Like Charles W. Morgan Whaling Ship - (ex-Pyro), B249-150

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

From the mid 1970s. Very nicely detailed medium-size kit originally from Pyro's line of sailing ships. The medium models were originally called the '$1.00' ship line, which were a significant step up in size and detail from the '50 cent' series. Full hull model measures 8.5 inches long when assembled and features with very good molded detail, pre-molded ratlines, detailed deck, billowing sails and display stand. Never started. The white sails are still factory sealed; the dark wood brown parts have been inventoried complete with instructions.

Guillows Hawker Hurricane - 20 Inch Wingspan Flying Aircraft Model, 50-9

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Rare stick-and-tissue model dated 1954. This was part of Guillow's extensive '50' line of models with wingspans between 16 and 24 inches. These were very advanced kit for their day, featuring all die-cut balsa parts, stripwood and spars, plastic cowl and completely finished light-weight plastic wheels, finished thrust button, plastic prop, fully formed metal prop shaft, clear window material, covering tissue and superb plans with numerous construction details. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and plans present. 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.
