Joe Ott North American Mustang P-51B - Ott-O-Former - 40 Inch Wingspan, 4001

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

From the mid-1940s and very rare, especially in this condition.. The Joe Ott desinged 'Ott-O-Former' series was the height of the classic stick and tissue flying model kits not just in box art but in contents. The large wingpspan kits were the top of the Joe Ott line and had a price tag to match, which makes them harder to find today, since fewer were produced. In a time when most kits came only with white tissue, printed wood and plans, the Bilt-A-Set line box came chock full of parts and features like beautifully printed Ott-O-Formers to speed up fuselage construction, Ott-O-Fromer assembly jigs and other parts as well, high-quality full length spars and strip wood, light-weight hardwood wing ribs, plywood propeller, fully carved and finished main and tail wheels, metal propeller/rubber shaft, propeller bearings, clear windscreen material, two colors of covering tissue, color printed national markings, pilot bust and squadron insignia, fully illustrated instructions and more. There is even a tube of very colorful Jo Ott Model Airplane Cement included (never opened, but dried up). This kit has never been started and is like it left the factory. The spars and stringers are still held together with the factory adhesive paper. All small parts are still in the factory small paper bag. The parts are still all in the sheets; none have been punched out. 100% complete with all parts and the plans in 'very good++' condition. The box top had several split corners and short tears and I have repaired them all correctly from the inside with cardstock and book binding glue.

Guillows Fokker D-VII - 18 Inch Wingspan Rubber Powered Balsa Wood Kit, WW-4

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

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.

Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.
