Precise Sparrow II Missile (CF-105 Arrow) Douglas Bendix

Plastic Model Kit

$750   

This was the intended weapons system for the Canadian Arrow Interceptor program. Major problems prevented the Sparrow II from operational service and played a small roll in the demise of the Arrow. Other systems were more expensive or less effective. The AWG-9 was offered, but was too costly. The Falcon was offered, but was not adequate. Thus the beautiful aircraft without a weapon came to be canceled. This very rare display model was made by Precise as a promotional item for Douglas and Bendix (the two main contractors). The missile is 6.5 inches long as is the clear base. It comes in it's original shipping box with a two-sided information card on the missile. Condition is mint - it has only been taken out of the box twice. Base upright reads 'Douglas Bendix Sparrow II'. No touch ups/repairs or cracks. Insurance required on shipping.

Douglas Model Studio Thrust Augmented Delta Missile NASA / Douglas

Wood Model Kit

$1800   

Very rare hand made model from the internal Douglas Studios. Measures 27 1/4 inches high and is made from wood and metal. Brass name plate says 'NASA / Douglas Thrust Augmented Delta'. Condition is beautiful. Decals are excellent. Paint is very good but there is typical hairline age cracking as the entire missile is primarily made of wood. No broken or missing parts.

Precise Martin Marietta Sprint ABM

Plastic Model Kit

$1100   

Very rare promotional model of the 'Safeguard' ABM Missile Sprint. The Sprint and Spartan pair made up the missiles of this Anti-Ballistic Missile system with Sprint designed for short range interceptions. The system was made operational on October 1 1975 and Congress voted to shut it down less than 24 hours later on October 2 1975. Condition is excellent. Missile measures 14.75 inches high and is made of plastic. The missile body is mint with no broken parts - no scratches - no wear. The decals are 'very good.' There is some black missing on the roll pattern at the top (see photo) and the same amount missing on the back base roll pattern. The red 'US ARMY' is mint on the back but part of the 'R' is missing on the front as shown. The base is 'excellent' and has a metal plate that reads 'US Army Sprint Antimissile Missile - Martin Marietta.' There are no touch ups or repairs and no cracks. Please note that shipping insurance is required.

Guillows Hawker Mk1 Hurricane - 16 inch Wingspan Balsa Flying Model, 506

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$14   

1976 stick and tissue flying model. One of a very popular series of World War 2 kits. Includes die cut balsa parts, vacuform nose, wheels, plastic propeller, hardware, vacuform canopy, colored tissue, insignia and full size plans with detailed building instructions. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes insignia 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 2016.
