Combat Models U-9 German WWI Submarine (U-Boat), 1/72

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Large-scale model of Kommandant Otto Weddigen's famous submarine. U-9 and crew sank three British Armored Cruisers in one short engagement, forever establishing the submarine as a serious threat. This is a large-scale vacuform kit that is still in the original plain cardboard Combat Models shipping box with the original address tag. If you wish, this box can be discarded and the model repacked, which will save you slightly on shipping. The kit consists of white vacuform plastic parts, plans and very good instruction on the back of the plans. Please note that Vacuform kits are only recommended for modelers who are experienced with this type of model. Special skills and scratch building experience are required for assembly. If you are curious, I highly recommend that you read the article 'How To Build Vacuform Model Kits' which is located on this website.

Guillows SE-5A Scout - 24 inch Wingspan for Free Flight or R/C Conversion, 202

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Large scale, well detailed model that can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using modern small, light servos and receivers. Features scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform nose/cowl and engine, full color decals, tissue, die cut balsa parts, rubber motor, plywood firewall, illustrated, detailed instructions 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 as of 2009.
