Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$38   

Late 1960s Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of the kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity.

This model is nicely detailed and the box states that it can be converted to a 'road racing' or slot car.

Lindberg Boeing Trainer PT-17 Kaydet - (ex-Varney / ex-O-Lin), 1/48, 508-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$55   

Rare 1950s hardbox issue with colorful Ray Gaedke boxart. This kit has a long and interesting history. These molds were originally created by Varney in the 1940s - please see the article on this website about this. The Varney PT-17 was one of the first injection molded plastic aircraft kits produced in the USA. O-Lin, of which Paul Lindberg was one-half of, purchased the Varney molds and released the kit after slight mold modifications. When O-Lin became Lindberg, the kit was released once - this kit - with the minimally modified molds. After this release, the molds were modified more significantly. Molded in glossy yellow, black and clear. The model has not been started. It is complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The parts are the correct early issue. The box displays better than the 'fair' rating but is graded a such to due to heavy wear at the right side of the box top and missing litho along the entire right short side.

Guillows Piper Super Cub 95 - 24 inch Wingspan for Free Flight or R/C Conversion, 303

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$24   

Dated 1961. Large-scale, well detailed kit that can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using modern servos and receivers. Features quality balsa die-cut parts and strip wood, die-cut plywood firewall, scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform cowl, excellent full color decals, colored tissue and excellent full size 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.
