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

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Sold   

Still factory sealed. Purchased new in 1965 in Ohio. One of a very popular line of World War 1 flying aircraft stick and tissue kits with 18 inch wingspan. Kit features scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, light vacuform nose cowl, die cut balsa parts, colored tissue, rubber motor and full decals. Includes full size detailed plans. 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.

From Stephen Payne: "Helicopter 66/Helo 66," or US Navy Bureau Number 152711, is easily one of the most well-known &widely-recognized Sikorsky SH-3D Sea King helicopters in history. It was the prime recovery helicopter for five of the Apollo missions. It servedwith the Navy's Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron 4 (HS-4) with distinction. From late 1968 through the spring of 1970, the Black Knights of HS-4 participated in and pioneered techniques for the Apollo capsule recoveries. HS-4 was on scene for Apollo missions 8, 10, 11, 12, and 13. The helicopter's flight number was changed from '66' to '740' after the Apollo 11 recovery as the U.S. Navy had switched to a three number squadrondesignator system - but the helicopter was repainted with the number "66" for each recovery (Apollo 12 & 13) thereafter for public relations reasons.
