Guillows Curtiss Robin 1930s Sport plane - 24 inch Wingspan RC/CL/Rubber Powered Kit, 305

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

From 1965. Large scale and well designed kit. Can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using today's small and light servos and receivers. Features plastic engine heads and cowl/radiator, quality die-cut balsa parts, strip wood and spars, die-cut plywood firewall, fully finished wooden wheels and thrust button, metal stock as required, rubber motor and plastic prop, metal prop shaft, clear cabin window material, colored tissue and a big sheet of excellent decals. Includes excellent full size plans with detailed instructions. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or 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.

KVZ Lufthansa Turbinen Baade 152 Airliner - Built - No Box, 1/100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box

Sold   

Very rare. This is a built up KVZ Baade 152 kit that was factory painted silver and dark blue. The factory paint is in excellent condition and the decals have been neatly applied. The kit is complete with all parts. The kit was at one time neatly built with very little glue. As a result, most parts have come cleanly apart. The fuselage halves still have the locating pins and holes and the fit is excellent. One horizontal stabilizer is intact, the other has the locating tab broken off. The two tip tanks and engine pods are neatly assembled. The engine pylons have two of the four locating pins still remaining. One wing is intact; the other wing has a 2 inch by 1/4 inch section missing on the inboard end (photo). Both main and nose struts are complete with locating pins, and all 10 wheels are complete. The KVZ antenna material is present but was never put on the model. This is an aircraft with a very interesting history. In 1952, German Aircraft Engineers (some from Junkers) working in Russia had developed a design for a twin engine bomber known as 150. The engineers were returned to what was now East Germany, and headed by former Junkers designer Brunolf Baade, they designed the 152. Initially the Soviets showed interest, as did other Warsaw Pact countries. The program suffered early on from economic and material issues. The delay resulted in 152 V1 rolling out in 1958. During the second test flight, the crashed about 3 miles short of the runway, killing all on board. The cause for the crash was never released. The next two prototypes were completed with modifications and the second one flew. By this time (1961) the Russians and other Pact countries showed no interest, and the program was halted. This was the end of all GDR aircraft construction.

Carl Goldberg Models Jr. Falcon - 37 inch Wingspan RC Aircraft, G18-395

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

Carl Goldberg was a gifted designer of model aircraft, and his career spanned the evolution of flying models. His designs and number of titles won in competition at the Nationals is legendary. His first competition was the 1928 Nationals, where he received honorable mention. By 1934 he won the indoor Nats and in 1935 he opened a Hobby Shop, among the first in the nation (the first one was probably opened by Cleveland Models Ed Packard). Awards came quickly. He wrote articles for Model Airplane News, and was Comet's top designer from 1939 till 1945. After Comet, he worked with Mike Schlesinger and Sid Axelrod on what eventually became Top-Flite Models. In 1955 he founded Carl Goldberg Models and released a still-popular line of scale, rubber, gas, glider and RC models. Needless to say, Goldberg's models are of the highest quality. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.
