Guillows Curtiss P-40 Warhawk - 16 inch Wingspan Rubber Powered Balsa Wood Kit, 501

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$22   

From the 1960s. One of a very popular 16.5 inch wingspan series of World War 2 stick and tissue flying kits. Includes die cut balsa parts, vacuform nose, wheels, plastic propeller, hardware, vacuform canopy, colored tissue, insignia and full size plans with detailed building instructions. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals 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.

Hasegawa-Frog Messerschmitt Me-410 A-1, 1/72, JS-031-250

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$44   

Rare Japan Hasegawa/Frog early issue. As you know, AMT marketed Frog in the USA as AMT-Frog. Frog also marketed Hasegawa kits in the UK, but with no Hasegawa identification. What is even less known is that Hasegawa marketed Frog kits in Japan under the Hasegawa/Frog label. The parts appear to be molded in England while the decals, box and instructions were all made in Japan. This Me-410 is one of those kits. This is a very early example with the early rectangle logo; the Frog logo is immediately to the right. Most Japan issue kits had special features and this one is no exception. It includes a special round-based clear two-piece globe stand, a unopened tube of Hasegawa cement and additional decals - no fewer than four different '410s are represented with paint guides. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. Please NOTE the water stain on the right, which goes down the right short side and is also on the box tray. There is no water damage to the parts, decals or instructions.
