ESCI FIVE M3A1 Armored Scout Car / THREE 3/4 Ton 4x4 Carrier Trucks / FOUR M4A1 Sherman Tanks, 1/72, 8038

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

SALE!! Includes all 12 kits in the boxes shown with decals and instructions. NOTE: Sold AS-IS and not inventoried. This collector was very meticulous and of his kits that I did inventory, 95% are complete. But he cut the sprue (trees) with the part numbers still attached to each number, so the parts are loose. Because of that, I have not inventoried these kits. NOTE: he very neatly built minor to major sub assemblies to "excellent++ to professional" quality. Most are minor, but occasionally there is major assembly, in this case on the M3A1s. Again, these kits are sold not inventoried and AS IS hence the very low price.

Guillows Supermarine Spitfire - 27 inch Wingspan Rubber / RC / CL Flying Model, 1/16, 403

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

Sold

Well detailed with scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform nose/cowl and engine, full color decals, colored tissue, die cut balsa parts, rubber motor, plywood firewall and excellent full size 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.
