Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and and instructions present. NOTE: the decals are flat and intact but at one point they were lightly stuck to the instructions.

Revell Air Power CBS Gift Set F-100C F-101A F-102 F-89D B-57B With S Cement - 'S' Issue, G240-495

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$795   

1956 first and only issue in remarkable condition inside and out - the finest I have ever seen. The box top is in 'Excellent++' condition. It has factory-new color and gloss, no creases, fading, stains, holes or tears. There are no price tags, no tag marks and no tape or tape marks (other than the factory sealing tape of course). There are no marks from the decorative ribbon Revell shipped them with, which is very rare. Flaws include: light and isolated general wear, some edge and corner wear and two old original store stamped prices (discounts) on the left short panel that have been neatly blacked out. Inside, it is exactly as it left the factory and contains a colorful, factory-sealed tube of Revell S Cement, all five aircraft models with the two correct dividers. All five kits are still in the factory sealed clear bags. The tray (lower box) is in 'excellent' condition. All kits contain the famous Revell clear 'Globe' stand. It would be difficult to find a better example of this kit, especially since there is no ribbon stain on the box top.

Guillows SE-5A Scout - 24 inch Wingspan for Free Flight or R/C Conversion, 202

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Email for availability.

Large scale, well detailed model that can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using modern small, light servos and receivers. Features scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform nose/cowl and engine, full color decals, tissue, die cut balsa parts, rubber motor, plywood firewall, illustrated, detailed instructions 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.

1960 issue of the rare "Whip Fly" series. Hardbox artwork for this series was the 'action' photos by Tom Kelly.

Although not listed yet, there was also a Whip-Fly Canberra, F-106 and Yak-25 Flashlight. The Whip-Fly series seemed like a good idea...at first. Revell quickly realized that spinning heavy ballasted, sharp objects at dizzying speeds near groups of children inside and outside the home not the best idea. The line was discontinued.
