The Fujimi Corsair is complete and has no gluing or paint but minor fine sanding to the fuselage with a very, very fine grit paper.

Orange Crush-Revell 1909 Stanley Steamer, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Very rare kit with a fascinating history. Around 1958/59, Orange Crush of Mexico offered a promotion. They offered free, colorful, plastic model cars if you collected correctly-marked Orange Crush bottle caps. The models are 1/32 scale Revell Highway Pioneer series - although there is no mention of Revell or Lodela anywhere on the box. Orange Crush had the boxes and even the instructions specially made for them with no mention of a manufacture. They were never given numbers. The boxes were very thin and fragile cardboard. This has contributed to wear and you must be very cautious with them. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bag and the instructions are sealed in the bag as well. You could redeem your caps two ways - at the Orange Crush truck and at a Modelandia Hobby House. The box sides show the 18 cars in the series. Orange Crush also released two full-color booklets and a complete paint set for the cars. A colorful cardboard box held 7 colors of paint in glass bottles, complete with 'Orange Crush' screw-on caps! The entire promotion was done in coordination with Modelandia Hobby House which had up to 19 stores. Modelandia's name appears on each of the boxes and the paint as well. Robina S.A. was the bottler or distributor of Orange Crush in Mexico at that time. The box side lists the other 18 kits with small color pictures of each and shows three sizes of OC - Family Size (Familiar), Grand (Grande) and Normal. You could also obtain models with Titan bottle caps. Titan was also bottled by Robina and came in large (Titan) and smaller (Titancito) sizes and apparently more than one flavor. We do not know how Orange Crush had access to the plastic kits or who sealed the internal bags with the Crush instructions inside them. We can assume that it may have been Lodela, since they would have had access to the Revell molds. It is not know for how long the promotion lasted, but Orange Crush was one of the most dominant soft drinks in Mexico at that time. Here is one clue: some boxes claim that Modelandia had 13 locations; other boxes, which obviously came later on, claim 19 locations. This may indicate that this promotion went on for a significant amount of time.

Guillows Professionally Built Albatros D-V With Wood Paneled And Completely Finished Fuselage - 17.5 Inch Wingspan

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good

Sold   

I believe this is from a highly modified Guillow's #WW-1 D5A but I do not know for sure. It is partially assembled to world-class quality. The work was done in the 1950s although it is as fresh as if it were finished yesterday. The fuselage is completely wood covered and completely finished to a stunning effect. It is not sheeted but is covered with individual rectangles of balsa (a method pioneered by Cleveland in the 1930s), cut to fit between each bulkhead and stringer. That is right - when you look into the cockpit, the wood covering is flush with the stringers. The quality of the work is so phenomenal that the lines of the fuselage are perfectly smooth and you cannot spot a single seam between the dozens and dozens of individual panels. The attached elevator and separate rudder are perfectly built with flawless airfoil cross sections (they are not flat). The two wings are built flawlessly, finish sanded and ready to cover. The leading edges are perfectly and consistently formed and rounded while the trailing edges are sanded almost paper thin. I previously sold many of this modeler's completed kits and they were all world class; this one is no exception. I intended to finish it myself, but it is time for it to go to someone who will give it what it deserves. Kit will be shipped very carefully packed and doubled boxed.
