Sterling Northrop P-61 Black Widow - 37.5 inch Wingspan Flying Airplane, E-15

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Rare. Very high quality, scale kit designed for R/C, rubber power, gas or CO2, control line or non-flying super detail scale. Features quality die-cut balsa printwood and stripwood, diecut plywood, numerous crisp vacuform parts such as cowlings, cowl flap rings, spinners, wheels, turret and more, clear vacuform canopy and rear bubble in 'mint' condition, light-weight plastic and prop, hardware, rubber motor, fully formed wire landing gear, complete full color decals, covering tissue, superb full size plans that include building and flying instructions and conversion details for R/C and other forms of flight. Never started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed Sterling bag while the parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete with a paperwork. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they were very complete.

Guillows De Havilland DH-4 - 27 Inch Wingspan RC / Gas / Rubber Flying Model, 205

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

From about 1964 and in amazing 'near mint' condition. Large-scale, well detailed model can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using modern servos and receivers. Features die cut balsa parts, rubber motor, plywood firewall, scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform nose / machine guns / pilot busts, two big sheets of full color decals, covering tissue 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.

Authentikit Vehicles 1903 Overland, 1/16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

VERY rare kit from about 1950 and the only large-scale model of this subject. Very well detailed for that time and a rather deluxe model featuring machine cut hardwood parts (many cut to final shape), excellent plastic wheels, brass lanterns, stock brass, stock metal, hardwood dowels and more. With excellent full-size plans including patterns, detail drawings and full text instructions. Even includes a painting guide. The kit has never been started. Inventoried complete with all pieces and paperwork. Authentikit Vehicles was another maker of big 1/16 classic cars and competed with the bigger Hudson Miniatures and Fador. Authentikit simply called their models "Antique Automobile Kits" while Husdon Miniatures called theirs "Old Timers" and Fador called their line "Smallersters." Authentikit Vehicles was located in Coatesville, Pennsylvania and from what I can tell, it was a slightly superior kit to the more common Hudsons and Fadors. Authentikit advertised a "1902 Piece Motorette" on the instructions which could be purchased from a hobby shop or directly from the Pennsylvania office. So far these are the only two I have seen. The models are incredibly rare; to date only one Pierce and one Overland have traded hands publicly over the internet.
