Guillows Fairchild 24 - 25 inch Wingspan - R/C Control Line or Rubber Powered Kit, 701

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$24   

From the late 1960s and early 70s. Large and well detailed stick and tissue model that can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using modern small and light servos and receivers. Features quality die-cut balsa parts, stripwood and spars, plastic nose cowl & wheel pants, decals, covering tissue, completely finished wheels, full size plans, plastic propeller and thrust button, metal shaft/rubber hook, detailed instructions on the full size plans and more. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. 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.
