Guillows Piper Super Cub 95 - 24 inch Wingspan for Free Flight or R/C Conversion, 303

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM


Modern reissue of the original 1961 kit. Large-scale, detailed model that can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using modern servos and receivers. Features quality balsa die-cut parts and strip wood, firewall for gas engine installation, scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, light plastic nose cowl, excellent full color decals, covering tissue 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.

AMT 1968 Ford Galaxie XL GT 428 2 Door Hardtop Promo With Original Box, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


Very rare, especially in this condition. Original friction-drive promotional model in a stunning yellow with a black chassis and metal axles. One-owner model was obtained new in 1969 in Lexington, KY by a very discriminating adult collector. The box is original. The model has perfect color and gloss, the chrome is like new and has never even been displayed. Tires are perfect (never rolled) and it has never even been displayed. I would grade it 9.7 out of 10 with 10 being flawless. I naturally hesitate to declare anything 'flawless.'

Hawk Supermarine S.6B (S-6B S6B) Acetate 1948 One Piece Box Issue, 1/48, 700

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++


For the advanced model collector. This is the first issue in acetate from 1948. It has a fascinating history for it is among the early injection molded kits produced in the United States (please see the article about early USA kit production on this website). The Hawk model company was the most innovative in America and had been making constant 1/48 scale models in wood with metal accessories since the late 1920s. During the re-run of the World's Fair in 1933, Hawk may have made the world's first injection molded airplanes models - but they were not kits. The models were completely finished and were on display for the then-large sum of $25 each. The Mates brothers, who founded and ran Hawk, were quick to incorporate this new technology by replacing the metal detail parts with injection molded details to the wooden kits in the late 1930s. During the war, Hawk put it's injection molding knowledge to work making ID models for the US Armed Forces. Originally there was a nation-wide program to have children and adults make these from wood, but consistency was an issue - injection molded solved this problem. Immediately after WWII in 1946, Hawk made the Curtiss Racer model injection molded in black tenite. The box was a simple one-color affair. This may have been the first injection molded airplane kit produced in the USA; another contender is the Varney's PT-17. Both met a very cool reception at hobby shops. Hawk quickly added two-color art work to the Curtiss box and molded the kit in bright yellow acetate. In 1947, Hawk approached toy stores since hobby shops were giving the kit poor promotion. The toy stores did much better. Spurred on by toy store sales in 1947, Hawk added four classic racers in 1948, all molded in acetate - the Gee Bee, Howard Ike, Laird Solution and the Supermarine S6B. This kit is the one of the early acetate examples from 1948. (Hawk made the switch to polystyrene in 1949.) The acetate is a high-gloss medium gray and has very little warping. With a little pressure, all parts fit together perfectly. This is very unusual as acetate usually warps badly. The kit has never been started. The small parts are still factory sealed in the clear 'krinkle' bag and the big parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete. The instructions are in 'near mint' condition and are the rare, original first issue with text only and no illustrations. One side of the box is 'excellent' (as shown) and the other side is only 'good.' - hence the overall 'good++' grade. All end flaps are present and attached. There is tape on both end flaps and a tape tear on one. The box has not been crushed, bent or flattened, which is unusual, as the one-piece boxes were not very strong. Please note that Hawk did not issue decals or a clear windscreen with the first issue of this kit.
