William H Low Co Combination Chemical Wagon - Wilo Line Fire Truck, 1/24, FC180

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$64   

Very rare. Likely from the 1940s. William H Low Co., of Braintree Mass., issued the 'Wilo Line' which included a superb series of antique commercial firefighting equipment. The box top photo shows the actual model as assembled by Bill Low. The scale is given as 1/2" and the finished wagon is a large 8" long (13.5" with the front carriage bar). The kits were very advanced for the time and shared many of the pre-fabrication methods of Hudson Miniatures. Features plastic injection molded spoke wheels, precut large wooden parts, fully finished chemical tanks, completely cut and drilled ladder frames and pre-cut rungs, smaller parts including a great many fully carved of wood & others of metal and brass (chain), with a variety of metal stock as needed, sandpaper, complete instructions with detailed plans, additional drawings, complete text instructions and a big photo of the actual built model. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including instructions/plans. The kits in this line include Amoskeag Steamer, Hose Reel, Hose Wagon, Chemical Engine and many others. In most cases they are the only kits in existence of these historic vehicles. Bill Low did design at least one 'non-fire truck' kit in his Will-O-Line - a Conestoga Wagon, advertised as being 1/24 scale, kit #B14 for $2.85 listed as "This is another Museum Piece by Bill Low." After seeing these fire truck kits, I do not doubt that.

Guillows Focke-Wulf Fw-190 - 25 inch Wingspan RC / Control Line / Free Flight Flying Model, 1/16, 406

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$38   

Still factory sealed and in investment-grade condition. Purchased new on May 23, 1967 in Northern Ohio. One of a very popular 1/16 scale stick-and-tissue series with a 25 3/4 inch wingspan. Can be flown on gas power, U-Control, radio control (R/C) or rubber power. Features high quality balsa die cut balsa parts and stripwood, die-cut plywood parts, vacuform nose / spinner / pilot and more, wheels, plastic propeller, hardware, clear vacuform canopy, covering tissue, big decal sheet and full size plans with detailed building 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.

Air Lines General Aircraft Ltd Hotspur II Glider, 1/72, 7904

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$18   

Well detailed kit from ex FROG molds. Never started. Factory sealed bag or 100% inventoried with all parts/decals and instructions present. Box art is by the famous Jo Kotula who did 1930s covers for the magazine 'Model Airplane News' and later the Aurora box art of the late 1950s. Air Lines kits are all Frog molds that the Lines Brothers imported to the USA between 1964-1966. The kits, decals and instructions were made in England, then imported to the USA where Testors created the boxes with the colorful trading cards on the back. There are one or two trading cards on each box which show the boxart but not the advertising/logo. Some kits contain a Testors color painting guide also, but it is not specific to any model.

In the late 1930s, before WWII, Frog created the world's first line of injection molded plastic model kits.

The Penguin Osprey was among the early pre-war releases by Frog. The kit is reproduced from actual Frog Penguin kits belonging to the extensive collection of the owner of Merlin Models.
