Email for availability.

Still factory sealed and in investment-grade condition. Purchased new on May 23, 1967 in Northern Ohio. One of a very popular 1/16 scale stick-and-tissue series with a 25 3/4 inch wingspan. Can be flown on gas power, U-Control, radio control (R/C) or rubber power. Features high quality balsa die cut balsa parts and stripwood, die-cut plywood parts, vacuform nose / spinner / pilot and more, wheels, plastic propeller, hardware, clear vacuform canopy, covering tissue, big decal sheet and full size plans with detailed building 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.

It is a very sturdy model with fully planked fuselage, sheeted wing, solid horizontal and vertical stabs, rudder and elevators, solid wing tips and more. Features a very large number of precut parts (some fully finished, others requiring additional trimming or sanding, rubber scale wheels with finished wood hubs, many plywood parts at key locations, quality planking and sheeting wood, clear windshield material, extensive hardware still in the wax paper bag, various sizes of wire stock, separate text building instructions and superb full size plans. Never started and complete. Please note there is no tissue because this model does not use tissue. There is also no printwood since the parts are factory cut out.

Huma Model Arado Ar-396, 1/72, 23

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$26   

The highly successful Ar-96 was an all metal aircraft designed by Walter Blume. It first flew in 1938 and quickly became the Luftwaffe's standard advanced trainer for the duration of WWII. The Ar-396 was a direct development of the Ar-96; the main difference was that it used less strategic materials. The Ar-396 A-1 was single-seat gunnery trainer that was powered by an Argus As 411 engine and built largely from wood. This model is the two seater version, which would appear to be the A-2 instrument trainer. Still factory sealed. Nicely molded model with recessed panel lines, good cockpit, crew, bomb load and more.
