Monogram Grumman TBF Avenger Blue Box Issue, 1/48, 6829-150

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

Sold   

Still factory sealed. Dated 1966. Very unusual and short-lived issue with the new four digit part number and a price extension of 150. This was soon dropped.

Later Monogram/Mattel issues had another logo on the box top. This is a reissue of the Four Star kit and has many action features: Wings fold properly as on the real aircraft, landing gear retracts, bomb bay doors open and torpedo drops, machine gun rotates and elevates, and the prop and wheels turn. Includes four airmen.

Guillows Monocoupe - Flying Aircraft Model, 50-7

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

Rare stick-and-tissue model dated 1949. This was part of Guillow's extensive '50' line of models with wingspans between 16 and 24 inches. These were very advanced kit for their day, featuring all die-cut balsa parts, stripwood and spars, lightweight plastic cowl and wheels, thrust button, plastic prop, metal prop shaft, covering tissue and superb plans with numerous construction details. Never started and complete. 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.
