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.

The carnage of the Civil War made transporting the wounded from the battle grounds a matter of life or death. The ambulance wagon designed by Brigadier General D.H. Rucker proved to be the most valuable innovation. Used during the later half of the war, it was able to carry patients in seated or prone positions. The ambulance body rested on platform springs designed to reduce both for and aft and side to side jostling. The suspension also included a horizontal draught spring under the fifth wheel to reduce the sudden lurch of the wagon when the team started to pull it.
