Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or 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.

Unknown Berliner-Joyce XFJ-2 - Wooden Aircraft Kit, 1/28, D-9

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Very rare 1930s large scale solid kit from an unknown kit manufacture. The kit number is D-9. The Berliner-Joyce XFJ-2 was the original XFJ with a cowling, Townend ring and a 500-hp R-1340-92 Wasp engine. Performance was very good, but ground handling was less than optimal. The Navy did reconsider the XFJ but decided on other aircraft instead. The aircraft was flown for a few years for various tests and scrapped. Evidently only one was ever made. The kit has minor assembly - the original owner began to rough out the fuselage in profile. The quality of work is good. There is no other assembly and the kit is complete with all wooden parts, fuselage templates, full size plans (very near 1/32 scale), original corked glass vials for glue and paint, turned wood wheels and bamboo.
