Sold   

From Marusan molds. Very nicely molded small scale kit. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. UPC stood for Universal Powermaster Corporation which was based out of New York City, NY. UPC did not cut their own molds, but bought kits already molded from other manufacturers and re-boxed the kits in the USA. Scott Eidson, the famous artist best known for his artwork with Revell, also did UPC box art in the 1960s. All UPC production ended in the 1970s.

Helicopters For Industry Piasecki HUP Retriever US Navy - (H-25 Mule), 1/48

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Very rare. Before Aurora had helicopter kits, there was the worlds' first 'copter kit line from 'Helicopters for Industry.' Dates from the early 1950s.

Features cockpit with instrument panel, control sticks and seats and spinning rotors and the unique clear HFI stand, which is still wrapped in the protective tissue paper. Aurora did not issue this kit with the stand. The kit has never been started.

The decals are 'excellent' and flat and the clear parts are 'excellent' as well. Instructions are 'excellent+' with the typical light yellowing. The box sides are in color and show the four other colors and decals for the HUP. This kit must be shipped insured.

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Very large scale kit. Features white main vac parts, clear parts in 'excellent' condition (not yellowed), and full size plans. Has never been started and includes all supplied parts.

Guillows Spad VII - 18 inch Wingspan Rubber or .01 Gas Powered Free Flight Aircraft, 102

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

Early 1970s issue that was originally #WW-3 from 1965. One of a very popular line of World War 1 flying aircraft stick and tissue kits with 18 inch wingspan. Kit features scale plastic wheels, propeller, nose cowl & pilots bust, die cut balsa parts, colored tissue, rubber motor, flywood firewall and full decals. Includes full size detailed plans. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, 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 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.
