Arcadia-Craft USS Cairo Federal Gunboat 1962 - (City Class), 1/192, 12

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Rare scale kit measuring just over 10 inches long. Scale is given as 1/4"-4', which I believe is 1/192. Excellent model with a factory cut hardwood hull and superstructure, metal fittings, other pre-cut hardwood and stock wood as required, full size plans and instructions. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions. The USS Cairo has a fascinating history. She was built as one of the City Class Ironclad Gunboats and was among the first in the Federal Navy. She was commissioned on January 16, 1862 and was torpedoed and sunk on December 12, 1862. She was 7 miles south of Vicksburg at the time and was headed for a bombardment. The damaged was done by an electrically-fired torpedo. The Cairo sank in shallow water and was forgotten. But the silt did a remarkable preservation on her. Amazingly she was found and subsequently raised in 1964. You can see this ship at a park near the Vicksburg National Cemetery and there is an excellent museum as well.

Guillows Supermarine Spitfire - Flying Aircraft Model, 50-10

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

Rare stick-and-tissue model dated 1954. This was part of Guillow's extensive '50' line of models with wingspans between 16 and 24 inches. These were very advanced kit for their day, featuring all die-cut balsa parts, stripwood and spars, plastic cowl and wheels, , completely finished wheels and thrust button, plastic prop, metal prop shaft, covering tissue and superb plans with numerous construction details. Never started. NOTE: missing canopy. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts and plans. 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.

Very highly detailed model of the actual fishing vessel that departed Gloucester Harbour, Massachusetts on September 20, 1991 with six crew on board.

The Andrea Gail 608 was reported missing by the owner, Mr. Robert Brown on Oct 30. And extensive air and sea search utilizing Canadian and USA resources never found a trace of the ship or crew. They were lost at sea in what one meteorologist referred to as the "Perfect Storm." A book written about this ship and storm was a national best seller and was turned into a major motion picture.
