Guillows Curtiss Robin 1930s Sport plane - 24 inch Wingspan RC/CL/Rubber Powered Kit, 305

From 1965. Large scale and well designed kit. Can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using today's small and light servos and receivers. Features plastic engine cylinder heads and cowl/radiator, quality die-cut balsa parts, strip wood and spars, die-cut plywood firewall, rubber tires mounted on scale plastic rims, fully formed thrust button, formed metal prop/rubber hood and metal stock as required, rubber motor and plastic prop, clear cabin window material, colored tissue and a big sheet of near-mint condition decals. Includes excellent full-size plans with detailed instructions. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and paperwork. 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.

In the 1930s and 1940s, most modelers built the flying stick and tissue type models with rubber, co2 or gas power. But there were a small but measurable percent that built solid aircraft display models of great detail. This required great skill worthy of the shipbuilders of old, especially considering the limited offerings. Many manufacturers, such as Comet issued blocks of wood and a plan - the famous (or infamous) 'Make Wood Look Like Plane' kits.
