Guillows Fokker D-VII - 18 inch Wingspan Rubber Powered Balsa Wood Kit, 103

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

1970s issue and a reissue of #WW-4. NOTE: builder or parts kit only. Missing parts. Only includes die-cut firewall, all die-cut balsa sheets (seven total) and plans. Plans are intact but have been used - evidently to build a model at some point. Again, this model is for parts or a builder only.

Guillows P-51D Mustang - 27 inch Wingspan for Free Flight or R/C Conversion, 1/16, 402

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

From the 1960s. Large scale stick-and-tissue model that can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using modern light-weight servos and receivers. Well detailed with scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform spinner, cowl and exhaust stacks, full color decals, covering tissue, die cut balsa parts, rubber motor, plywood firewall and excellent full size plans. There has been no assembly but NOTE: the vacuform spinner and nose cowl have been professionally cut out. No other work has been done. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: the instructions have been adult-cut (very neatly) on the factory dotted lines to ease assembly. 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.

Revell 1956 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham, 1/25, 1244

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

This is the 1996 reissue of the original 'S' kit utilizing the original artwork. Molded in black, clear and excellent chrome. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. The Eldorado Brougham four door hardtop (suicide doors) started as a dream car in the GM Motorama and made it to the production floor as the luxury car with "the greatest number of important technological advances ever included in a custom built automobile". The styling was revolutionary at the time. The car sported a large and powerful V-8 engine and air suspension. The interior was simply stunning, with upholstery combinations such as cashmere, nylon and leather in any number of patterns and styles and plenty of chrome trim. In the rear seat, there was a retractable armrest which contained a storage compartment fitted with a vanity, tissue dispenser, cigarette case and a large mirror. All these items, including custom perfume, were designed just for this car. At a price tag of $13,000 few were made but they are valuable classics today.

KMK AP-35 Mabuchi Geared Motor and Battery Case for Free-Flight TK-1 or other Airplanes, AP-35

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

It is said that the Mattel Superstar (late 1971) was the first mass produced electric powered, free-flight, rechargeable airplane. This geared electric drive certainly predates the Superstar but does not use rechargeable batteries. The intended aircraft - TK-1 - is pictured on the cover and described in great detail (including all dimensions) on the instructions. This power unit has a clever method of controlling how long the motor stays on - similar to the Ideal wooden flying kits 'gear extension' method of the 30's and 40s. It contains fuse material that is lit when the aircraft is launched. The fuse burns and releases a rubber band that disconnects the battery power. I assume this kit is from the 1960s but it is not dated. High quality and made from very light-weight plastic and metal. The power unit and battery box are mint and never used; the hardware is still sealed in the factory clear bag. Fuse material is also included and mint, and there are two sheets of instructions - Japanese and English. The Japanese set has extensive drawings and information the aircraft. Box has some wear as shown and missing one of the side inner flaps, but the contents are mint.
