Guillows Fairchild 24 - 25 inch Wingspan - R/C Control Line or Rubber Powered Kit, 701-250

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

Purchased new on October 17, 1967 in Northern Ohio. Large and well detailed stick and tissue kit. Can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using modern small and light servos and receivers. Features quality die-cut balsa parts, stripwood and spars, plastic nose and cheek cowls, balanced prop and power combination for long flights, decals, covering tissue, scale wheels, full size plans, detailed instructions and more. 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.

Midwest really did a fantastic job to truly gear these kits to this market. Everything that could be done to assure success has been done. Please note, this kit is for someone who already has some experience with wooden ship kits. The Jim Wilder No.2 was named after Jim Wilder, owner of Wilder Tug and Launch, est. 1876. She was built in Oakland, CA by the Gorham Engineering Company and her home port was San Francisco. The company was located at 3rd and Berry, but later moved to the Sante Fe dock area known as China Basin. The Jim Wilder was commercially operated for 70 years as a towing and passenger tug; she was most commonly used to tow barges and other tugs that had broken down. The Jim Wilder was built with a double-planked pine hull, bolted together with bent oak frames. Like most tugs, she was refitted over the years with many types of engines. In 1911 her engine was a 110 hp 3 cylinder S.F. standard gas, and in 1925 she had a 125 hp 3 cylinder Enterprise Diesel. In 1946 she was refitted with a pair of 115 hp Caterpillar D-17000 diesels hooked by chain drive to a single shaft. Speed at tow was 9.5 knots. In 1971 most wooden tugs were taken off the Bay due to age and size of newer vessels. The Jim Wilder No.2 was decommissioned by Steven Speidacchi. He left her hull 100% intact, but took her iron out. In 1989, Steven determined that the Jim Wilder No 2 was still restorable, the hull is still intact and some of her original iron has been recovered, all efforts are being made to keep her stable, so that in the future, she can be restored to her original condition. If you have any updates on the restoration progress, please email me.

OS Engines OS Max H 40 RC Gas Engine - (H40/RC)

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Brand new in the box. Never run. Purchased around 1961 by a US Navy Officer in Japan. He brought many such model airplane items home (via the USS Saratoga) but never used them. Includes the original box, "IH50/RC" gas engine still in the original factory plastic bag, the original factory tissue paper, needle valve (never even put in the engine) and a sealed bag with metal hardware and a cast part. There is no spec/instruction sheet. OS engines were made by Ogawa Model Mfg Company LTD in Osaka Japan. Many of the kits has a sticker on them that says "Tokyomokei Models Inc" with the address 1-5 Ginzahigashi, Tokyo Japan. I know this was a umbrella type organization that sold many brands of Japanese hobby kits; but it also may have been an actual store or warehouse too.
