Hawk Convair XF-92A Dart - Picture Gallery Issue, 1/72, 605-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Hard-to-find kit from the mid 1950s. The 'Picture Galley' issues had a colorful but short life. When Hawk moved from wooden kits to injection molded kits, they utilized the one piece 'flip top' boxes with one or two color printing. Sales were initially poor. Realizing that more color was needed, they went to the 'hardbox' design, which was medium weight cardboard with a colorful litho 'slick' glued to it. The litho slick allowed more colors to be used, so Hawk sought out an artist who began painting Hawk's first hardbox artwork - the Picture Gallery. After a short period of time, however, the artist became ill- hence the short production run. Artist Bill Campbell was contracted to fill his shoes. Hawk was so happy that Bill was used from that point on with other artists as well. Molded in gloss silver and green-tinted clear canopy and silver teardrop stand base and stand arm. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. The box only grades 'good' due to insect damage on the side panels.

Guillows SE-5A Scout - 24 inch Wingspan RC/Gas/Rubber Kit, 202

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Large scale well detailed kit. Can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using today's small and light servos and receivers. Well detailed with scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform nose/cowl and engine, full color decals, colored tissue, die cut balsa parts, rubber motor, plywood firewall and excellent full size plans. 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.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Very rare and desirable kit with Ray Gaedke artwork. This is the Lindberg Q/Decoy Ship, which has an unknown prototype but is suppose to be a WWI style Q-Ship submarine trap.

The CAROLYN was recommissioned as the USS ATIK and at the start of WWI which was a real US Q-ship. The kit has never been started. Inventoried complete with all other parts, decals and instructions.
