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.

Sterling Ansaldo S.V.A. 5 - Drops Leaflets in Flight - 19 Inch Wingspan R/C / Freeflight / Control Line Flying Aircraft - (SVA-5), A18

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$79   

19 inch wingspan kit for RC, free flight or control line. Includes innovative system for automatically dropping 'propaganda leaflets' in flight. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they featured color decals, high-grade die cut balsa, vacuform plastic detail parts, plastic wheels (if required), finished wire landing gear, rubber motor and plastic prop, full size plans with instruction details and full instructions for conversion to RC or control line.

From Dusty Rhodes - "The lively fuselage and nose art seen on the box art aircraft commemorates the historic rivalry between the Italian 12th Bomber Squadron (badge = three mice) and the 51st Fighter Squadron (badge = black cat). It particularly refers to a 1938 exercise in which the 51st's G-50s successfully intercepted a simulated attack by the 12th's SM-79s. Prior to the introduction of the G.50, the SM79s had easily outpaced the Cr-32s flown by the 'cats.'"

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$115   

Amazingly rare factory sealed first issue from the early 1950s. This is the first time I have seen this kit factory sealed. Box color and gloss are as new and the box grades a very strong 'Excellent+' overall. It displays as "Near Mint++" but I have graded it lower because there is a small (1/2" x 1/8") litho pull on the lower long side and some very light wear. The kit features movable ailerons, elevators and rudder, 'good' cockpit for that time, pilot figure and rotating wheels and propeller.
