Guillows Sopwith Snipe 7F1 - 18 inch Wingspan Rubber Powered Balsa Wood Kit, WW-10

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

One of a very popular line of World War 1 flying aircraft stick and tissue kits with 18 inch wingspan. Features scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, light vacuform nose cowl, die cut balsa parts, tissue, rubber motor and full decals. Includes full size detailed 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.
