Guillows Rumpler C5 - (C-V) 24 inch Wingspan RC/Gas/Rubber Kit, 206

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Large-scale, well detailed kit and one of the harder Guillow's kits to find. Can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using modern small, light servos and receivers. 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. 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.

Aurora P-38 Lightning, 1/48, 99-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Very rare. Of all the P-38 variants, this one seems to turn up the least. I even doubted the existence of it for a time. This would be the fourth issue and is most likely from 1957. It uses the same artwork as the 1955/56 Third issue, but Aurora dropped the rectangular 'Aurora Line' logo and Famous Fighters of All Nations logo. Molded in a very high gloss olive drab and clear, with the correct clear two-piece 'World' triangle based stand. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, exceptional condition decals and instructions. As with typical with Aurora, they used the 1956 instructions, replaced the old logo with the new, added the Parent's Magazine seal but left an illustration of the old stand (for which 1956 was the last year).

MPM Hansa Brandenburg W-29 Of Friedrich Christiansen - (W.29), 1/72, 72058

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Accurate model of Friedrich Christiansen's aircraft. Includes photetched parts. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. Ob erleutnant zu See Friedrich Christiansen is one of the best known German Naval Aviators. He was born on December 12, 1879 in Wyk-on-Fohr and the son of a sea captain. He was captivated by flying and earned his pilot's license in March of 1914. He became and instructor and was called up as a naval aviator in August at the 'old' age of 35. In September 1917 he took command of the Naval Air Station Zeebrugge and by December 11 he was awarded the Blue Max (Pour le Merite). Friedrich flew over 440 operational missions including raids on Dover and Ramsgate, rescue sorties, shipping attacks and more. He achieved at least 13 victories - including one submarine and one airship, but some sources credit him with as many as 27 victories. At least six of his victories were achieved as the commanding observer of the HB W.29. On July 4, 1918, he claimed two Felixstowe F2A flying boats as his first W.29 confirmed victories. After the war he rejoined the navy and became a pilot for Dornier, flying the world-famous DO-X, then easily the largest seaplane in the world. One of my relatives met the aircraft on it's South and North American tour. She was a waitress and she with a friend were selected to provide the food for a lunch on board the DO-X in Miami. The Germans contracted with the restaurant that employed her for the food, but wanted it served on the special and unique DO-X china, made just for this aircraft. My relative and her friend 'liberated' two medium size bread plates - one of which I received back in the late 1990s. Always underpowered and short on range, the flying boats were retired but one survived the scrap yard and found a home in the 1930s in the Berlin Air Museum, but it and the remaining china was destroyed in a Allied air raid.

Aurora Boeing 737 PSA, 1/72, 387

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

1974 block letter 'AURORA' logo issue. This is still the only 1/72 scale injection molded 737 kit to ever be made. Includes clear cockpit windows, full landing gear, display stand and a large PSA decal sheet. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. NOTE: the decals are neatly cut in half because they were stored separately, flat in plastic, in a filing cabinet and in a climate controlled location- and they would not have fit unless cut as such. The box displays better than the 'good' rating but is graded as such because there are closed splits on the sides that are taped closed.
