Resin Model Kit
SALE!! Read Carefully! This lot includes 15 resin submarines and numerous small parts - many more small parts than there are subs. The collector had perhaps the world's most exhaustive submarine model collection and by his letters knew all the resin manufactures very well; they even sent him prototypes. All 11 subs are high definition resin cast. For example, some are 1/72 Lone Star Models of very early subs and others are 1/700 models of modern SSBNs. In between are some 1/350. All are new and never built but NOTE: I do not know if they are all complete. Some are complete, but some may not be. Included are bags and bags of high quality cast metal parts including numerous props, diving and stern planes, rudders and much more. There are a few frets of PE parts as well. Please NOTE these are sold AS IS and I will not do a detailed inventory. If I were to do so, I would sell them individually for a much higher price. They are cheap because it is an "as-is grab bag." There are NO instructions and documentation of any kind other than the owners notes which often includes the manufacture and sometimes the name of the kit. Many cast metal details are labeled as well (like Lone Star) but some are not.

Lindberg is a company with a fascinating history The original 'Lindberg Line' stretches back to the 1930s when Paul Lindberg drew plans for famous modeling magazines and marketed his balsa wood 'stick and tissue' by urging dealers to carry the '...Complete Lindberg Line'. After the war, Lindberg and Olsen had a strong hand in early United States injection molded kit development. Please see the article located on this website about early USA plastic kit manufacturers.

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.

Very rare. Has a box art variation from the other issue of CR110. Likely from the 1940s. William H Low Co., of Braintree Mass., issued the 'Wilo Line' which featured a superb series of antique commercial firefighting equipment, all in 1/48 scale. Bill Low was the designer of all kits and he was a superb model maker. The scale is given as 1/2" and the finished model wagon is approximately 7 inches long without the horse hitch and ~ 12 inches long with it. The kits were very advanced for the time and shared many of the pre-fabrication methods of Hudson Miniatures. Wilo Line kits features "all parts in this kit cut to size and shape." Includes plastic injection molded spoke wheels, precut and machined large and small wooden parts, beautiful, metal stock, a sealed bag of smaller parts including a great many more fully carved wood parts, metal parts and full size plans with numerous drawings and detailed text instructions. There is even a big photo of the actual prototype. The kit has never been started. It is missing 3 or 4 small wooden parts that can be made; otherwise complete with all other parts, plans and instructions. The kits in this line include Amoskeag Steamer, Hose Reel, Hose Wagon, Chemical Engine and many others. In most cases they are the only kits in existence of these historic vehicles. Bill Low did design at least one 'non-fire truck' kit in his Will-O-Line - a Conestoga Wagon, advertised as being 1/24 scale, kit #B14 for $2.85 listed as "This is another Museum Piece by Bill Low." After seeing these fire truck kits, I do not doubt that.
