Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

The B-32 was the B-29s competitor for the US War Department, January 1940 very long range bomber requirement. The B-29 won the competition, but the B-32 was produced as a back up plan. The aircraft was plagued with teething problems and Consolidated was kept busy trying to solve them. The program was almost cancelled more than once. Finally, three B-32s arrived in the Pacific Theater for combat testing in May of 1945 and flew the first combat mission from the Philippines on May 29th. As more aircraft arrived in the Pacific most of the problems were eliminated and the B-32 was proven to be a tough, stable performer with excellent handling. Production was canceled at the end of the war. Features full decals for two aircraft including colorful nose art.

Heller Richelieu Battleship, 1/400, 81086

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

Sold   

Large-scale, full hull kit. As with most Heller ship kits, this model is highly detailed and very finely molded. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag complete with instructions. The French Battleships Richelieu and Jean Bart were striking beautiful and powerful ships. Both benefited from the design of the Dunkerque-class Battlecruisers, which were exceptionally well engineered and very difficult to sink as proven by the Dunkerque herself at the tragedy of Mers-El-Kebir. As the Dunkerque-class, these ships had extensive underwater protection and a unique water-exclusion material in the voids. The Richelieu-class carried all of it's main armament forward in two quad turrets with 380mm guns. The heavy secondary guns of 152 mm were carried aft. A high speed of 30 kts was proven and was not at the sacrifice of armor protection as on other capital ships. Richelieu escaped the fall of France and served with Allied forces throughout WWII and was present in Tokyo Bay at the end of WWII. Her sister Jean Bart was completed after the war and the two served with distinction in the post-war French Navy into the 1950s.

Guillows Mitsubishi Zero - 27 inch Wingspan for Free Flight or R/C Conversion, 1/16, 404

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

From the late 1960s or early 1970s. Large scale and can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using modern small and light servos and receivers. Well detailed with scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform nose/cowl and engine, plastic pilot, U-Control parts and handle, full color decals, covering tissue, die cut balsa parts, rubber motor, plywood firewall and excellent full size plans. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, 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.
