Air Lines Miles Magister - (Ex-Frog), 1/72, 3900

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$19   

From quality Frog molds. The kit has never been started. NOTE: missing one of two tiny canopies. It has been inventoried with all other parts included and has decals and instructions. Box art is by the famous Jo Kotula who did 1930s covers for the magazine 'Model Airplane News' and later the Aurora box art of the late 1950s. Air Lines kits are all Frog molds that the Lines Brothers imported to the USA between 1964-1966. The kits, decals and instructions were made in England, then imported to the USA where Testors created the boxes with the colorful trading cards on the back. There are one or two trading cards on each box which show the boxart but not the advertising/logo. Some kits contain a Testors color painting guide also, but it is not specific to any model.

Guillows Cessna L-19 Bird Dog - 18 inch Wingspan Flying Model, 50-3

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$28   

The plans are dated 1954. Nice smaller kit features Includes die cut balsa parts, vacuform nose, plastic wheels & propeller, hardware (prop shaft, bearing), vacuform clear canopy and windows, insignia (on the plans) and full size plans with building instructions. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts 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.

Please note, the kit displays better than the 'good' box grade. It is graded as such because there is masking tape neatly applied (about 1/4" thick) around the lower four side paneles. The box bottom has the remainder of the tape on it.
