Guillows P-51D Mustang - 27 inch Wingspan for Free Flight or R/C Conversion, 1/16, 402

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Sold   

From the 1960s. Large scale stick-and-tissue model that is well detailed. Can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using modern light-weight servos and receivers. Well detailed with scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform spinner, cowl and exhaust stacks, full color decals, covering 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.

Sterling Stearman PT-17 Kaydet - Control Line Wooden 32 Inch Wingspan Flying Model, C12-795

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Big 32.25 inch wingspan kit for control line or RC conversion - .19 to .35 size engines.

The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they were very complete and well made.
