Guillows Cessna 180 - 20 inch Wingspan Balsa Flying Model, 601

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

One of the Junior Contest Flying Model Airplane series. Stick and tissue light weight flying kit. Includes all materials needed to build and fly the aircraft. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts 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.

Aurora 1914 Stutz Bearcat American Classics Issue, 1/16, 156

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

Sold   

Still factory sealed. 1974 issue of Aurora's 'Super Detailed Museum Model with Plated Parts.' Done in a big 1/16 scale, this kit and the other 'American Classics' (previously released as the 'Old Timers') represented a significant leap forward in quality for Aurora. The Bearcat builds up a rolling chassis with transaxle, suspension, exhaust and drive line detail and includes a detailed interior with separately molded instruments. Molded in bright red, black and with brass plated parts and real rubber tires. Aurora was renowned for turning a profit and for keeping expenses down. In researching new kit subjects, they came upon a forgotten jewel - the Hudson Miniatures line of 1/16 scale wooden kits. Hudson had discontinued this line due to lack of sales of wooden kits. But the Hudson models were second to none in quality, research and documentation. Aurora was quick to realize this and used the research and layout from these kits to create the subjects for this 'Old Timers' series. It is fortunate for us that they did, because in most cases this is the only injection molded kit of these rare and classic early automobiles.

AMT 1960 Ford Edsel Convertible Promo With Original Box, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Very rare and especially in this condition. Original friction-drive promotional model in a stunning White and Silver. One-owner model was obtained new in 1960 in Lexington, KY by a very discriminating adult collector. The box is original and stamped with "EDSEL CONV -2.00". The model has perfect color and gloss. I do not believe that it has never even been displayed. The chrome is in factory new condition; even the two fender ornaments are present. I would grade this model a 9 out of 10, with 10 being flawless. The only thing holding back the '10' is that there is some of the typical 'crinkle' on the rear bumper chrome and I hesitate to call anything flawless.
