Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$569   

Very rare, and even rarer with the important fittings kit. This was Robbe's flagship model and was around $800 with the optional ship's fittings kit which is included. This full-scale model is designed for radio control operation with two props and rudders and provides great maneuverability even in rough water. The beautiful and huge hull is one piece molded ABS plastic and all other parts are pre-fabricated (die-cut) of wood and plastic. Includes hull, mast, funnel and small parts, die-cut decks, superstructure and crane parts, die-cut main frames and deck beams, clear glazing, double rudder system, R/C fitting set with tillers and pushrods, 35mm diameter screws, rubber rubbing strip, rails, anchor winch parts, optional fittings set and more. This example is never touched. It has not been started and all the parts are still exactly as the factory shipped them. The ones that were sealed are still sealed and the few that were not have been inventoried complete. With all plans/instructions. Unless you specify otherwise, this kit will be shipped in the huge and sturdy original box with paper covering the identification label and photo. If you choose to have it boxed again, extra shipping will apply. Please note, this may not ship to other countries who have size limited on postage because the box is 52.3 x 18.2 x 14.2 inches. Must be shipped insured.

Guillows Fairchild 24 - 25 Inch Wingspan for Free Flight or R/C Conversion, 701

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$28   

Still factory sealed. From very close to 1967. Large and well detailed stick and tissue model can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using today's small and light servos and receivers. Well detailed with scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform nose/cowl and engine, full color decals, colored tissue, die cut balsa parts, rubber motor, plywood firewall and excellent full size 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.

Comet Douglas C-54 / DC-4 Skymaster - 6 Inch Wingspan Solid Wood Model Airplane, 1/187, B6

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$29   

Rare 1945 issue. Features detailed three view plans with cutting patterns and sanding templates as well as painting color tips, two sheets of printwood and wood stock. Never started and inventoried 100% complete with all parts, plans and also basic instructions on the back of the box. In the 1930s and 1940s, most modelers built the flying stick and tissue type models with rubber, co2 or gas power. But there were a small but measurable percent that built solid aircraft display models of great detail. This required great skill worthy of the shipbuilders of old, especially considering the limited offerings. Many manufacturers, such as Comet issued blocks of wood and a plan - the famous (or infamous) 'Make Wood Look Like Plane' kits.
