Guillows Nieuport 11 - 24 inch Wingspan for Free Flight or R/C Conversion, 203

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

Purchased new on May 2, 1966 at Uncle Bob's Hobby Shop in Cleveland, Ohio. Large scale, well detailed kit. Can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using modern small, light servos and receivers. Features quality die-cut balsa sheet parts, stripwood and sparts, die-cut plywood firewall for gas operation, light plastic cowl, pilot bust, machine guns, engine and more, scale plastic wheels, rubber motor, thrust button, plastic propeller, big sheet of full color decals, covering tissue and excellent full size plans with instructions. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried 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.

United Scale Models Brass Sante Fe AT&SF Hudson 4-6-4 Locomotive and Tender - HO Scale, HO

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

Beautiful United Scale Models of Japan all-brass locomotive and tender in exceptional 'near mint', factory fresh condition. Please note that it is in the wrong box; the train is a Hudson but the box says Berkshire. The factory paint and lettering on the locomotive is in mint condition. There are no missing or loose parts and no visible wear on the upper side. The underside is as clean as the top. It looks as if the engine was never run or only run for testing. The lettering on the tender is mint and the paint is 'near mint+++'. The only flaws are two very tiny paint chips on the aft hand rail. They could easily be touched up by hand. Both models are not even dusty because they were always stored in the plastic bags, then wrapped and placed inside the original boxes. This model must be shipped insured. Please note that 3463 still survives to this day and is one of two remaining AT&SF 4-6-4 Hudsons.
