KMK AP-35 Mabuchi Geared Motor and Battery Case for Free-Flight TK-1 or other Airplanes, AP-35

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

It is said that the Mattel Superstar (late 1971) was the first mass produced electric powered, free-flight, rechargeable airplane. This geared electric drive certainly predates the Superstar but does not use rechargeable batteries. The intended aircraft - TK-1 - is pictured on the cover and described in great detail (including all dimensions) on the instructions. This power unit has a clever method of controlling how long the motor stays on - similar to the Ideal wooden flying kits 'gear extension' method of the 30's and 40s. It contains fuse material that is lit when the aircraft is launched. The fuse burns and releases a rubber band that disconnects the battery power. I assume this kit is from the 1960s but it is not dated. High quality and made from very light-weight plastic and metal. The power unit and battery box are mint and never used; the hardware is still sealed in the factory clear bag. Fuse material is also included and mint, and there are two sheets of instructions - Japanese and English. The Japanese set has extensive drawings and information the aircraft. Box has some wear as shown and missing one of the side inner flaps, but the contents are mint.

Guillows Albatros D-VA - 18 inch Wingspan Flying Airplane, WW-1

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

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, covering tissue, rubber motor and full decals. Includes full size detailed plans. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, 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.
