Guillows Aeronca Champion 85 - 24 inch Wingspan for Free Flight or R/C Conversion, 301

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$39   

From 1961. Large scale well detailed kit. Can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using modern small and light servos and receivers. Features quality die-cut balsa parts, stripwood and spars, excellent vacuform full engine cowl, scale wheels, thrust button, clear window material, rubber motor, plastic prop, metal stock and prop shaft, diecut plywood firewall for gas engine option, big decal sheet and two sheets of superb full size plans and detailed instructions. Never started and complete. 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.

AMT 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Promo With Original Box And Tissue Paper, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$425   

Very, very rare promotional model, especially in this condition and with the original box. The box is stamped "CORVETTE CONV. 1736 SILVER PEARL." This is a one-owner model that was obtained new on November 5, 1965 in Lexington KY. It has never been displayed and has been stored in the original box and tissue since it left the factory. It is 100% complete and original with zero repairs or touch-ups. The paint and chrome are in factory-new condition. There is zero body warp and the clear is in 'mint' condition. I would grade this one 9.5 out of 10 with 10 flawless. The deduction is because there is a closed split (fits back perfectly) at the drivers side vent frame and the A pillar. Nothing is broken off, and the crack closes perfectly (it is invisible), so this is completely repairable; but I'll leave that to the new owner. Even includes the original factory packing paper. The box is complete with all flaps and solid but has wear as shown and age foxing.

Monogram Ford Bronco XLT 4x4, 1/24, 2271

$48   

From 1981. Features very well detailed engine and compartment, opening hood, good chassis and suspension, complete interior and optional rear top.

Pyro 1948 Lincoln Continental, 1/25, C330-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$44   

From the mid 1960s and the only larger scale kit of this classic car. 'Good' kit with full engine, removable hood and convertible top. Molded in a very nice dark green. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. Edsel Ford himself sketched the design for the large V-12 equipped convertible with the assistance of Bob Gregory. The cars were incredibly popular. This was likely due to good looks and not the power plant; it made only 125 hp and was always troublesome.

Still factory sealed. From quality Pyro molds dating from the early 1960s. Modeled from the two Tuna Clippers (Gulf Star and Sea Magic) of the Avondale Marine Ways Company of New Orleans. Model has a hull length of 13.5 inches. Pyro actual designed these for water operation (with the Boat PowerPack which sold separately), so they make nice small R/C models. Hard-working tuna boats and crews roamed the ocean year-around in a dangerous business. Many vanished without a trace. The Gulf Star was wrecked on a reef off Peru.

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$195   

Very large 1/6 scale model of one of the most attractive biplanes of all time. Deluxe, high quality true scale model down to the rib spacing with the exception of the stabilizer, which is 30% bigger in area than the actual aircraft. For .35 to .45 size engines or could easily be converted to electric power since the finished weight is 7 lbs with radio and servos. This kit has not been started. Inside it is untouched. The parts that were factory sealed are all still in the factory sealed bags; the parts that were never sealed are either labeled or rubber banded together and even the original white paper parts identifier sheets are tucked under the rubber bands. The plans were never unfolded until I examined them. Please NOTE: this kit will ship in it's original sturdy box unless you specify otherwise. If you wish to have it place in another box, additional shipping will apply.

Enterprise Cycle Miniatures Tandem Bicycle, 1/15, B2

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$38   

Rare. Enterprise was a very successful maker of balsa wood free-flight and control line aircraft models dating well back into the 1930s. The Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' got the attention of Enterprise staff. Enterprise maintained their own museum of rare and extraordinary old time bicycles, so it only seemed natural that the first (and only) two plastic kits from the company would represent bikes. This model is of the Tandem, based on an example from 1896 and is very nicely molded and detailed for that time. It includes a display base also. This model and a 'Old High Wheeler' were fine kits issued in 1954 but did not sell well; production was discontinued after a short run. The kit has never been started. All parts are either still sealed in the 'krinkle' bag or have been inventoried 100% complete with the base.

SMP 1959 Chevrolet Nomad Station Wagon / 1958 Chevrolet Impala Convertible Promos, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$58   

SALE!! Includes both 100% complete promos in 'good' condition. Both have been in the same adult collection since the very early 1960s. The 1959 Nomad is friction drive with a metal chassis. The two tone finish is all original. There is slight warping, but not much compared to how these usually look. Never played with and the tires show zero wear. The 58 Impala is a roller with a plastic chassis; the make is not listed although it is probably AMT. There is slight warping but not as much as most examples. Both models have been professionally detailed with silver paint - the door handles, lettering, emblems, etc have been very neatly painted. Quality is high enough to easily pass for factory paint.

Aurora Convair 880 SuperJet TWA, 1/103, 384-250

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$225   

Still factory sealed. Dated 1961. The Convair 880 and it's near sister 990 were very high performance airliners. Unfortunately they did not find favor with commercial operators. Only 65 880s were produced from 1959 to 1962. The aircraft was designed to be smaller and faster than the DC-8 and 707 - this market did not develop, however, and if it did it could have been served with less expensive designs. The 990 was a larger and faster (mach .91) airliner, but it failed to meet it's range criteria for east to west crossings of the USA. As a result, only 37 were made. Interestingly enough, several 990s continued to be operated by private owners and NASA operated two 990s for decades after the last 990 was phased out of commercial service.
