Maircraft Taylorcraft - Solid Wood Model Airplane, 1/48, S-17

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$32   

Maircraft was originally founded in the early or mid 1930s by Gordon Christoph and went by the name Aircraft Model Company. The company produced a typical line of solid 'profile cut' kits that required the usual high talent levels for carving and finishing. A former Comet Model Airplane & Supply Co. salesman, Jack Mair, bought the company in the early 1940s and renamed it Maircraft. This company was one of the handful of solid kit producers who issued models in a consistent 1/48 scale during the 1930s and 1940s (others included Hawk and Dyna-Model). This lead to one of the most desirable and rare model kits ever produced in the USA - the wood/plastic 1/48 United DC-3 model issued immediately after World War 2. Other than the P-61 and a few other Maircraft offerings, most were simple kits that sold for the low price of about 35 cents and gave the owners many hours of pleasurable work. This kit features a full size plan with instructions steps, fuselage that is about 70% cut, profile cut wings and tail feather, strut material and fully formed wheels. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions.

Master Modelcraft Supply Co Fiat CR-40 - Actually A CR-42 DB or CR-30 or CR-32, 1/40, 12MM

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$26   

Likely from the 1940s. This is a solid wood model with an 8 inch wingspan. Features 2D cut fuselage block, quality printwood wings, die-cut horizontal and vertical stabilizer, printwood, die-cut propeller, fully formed wheels, wood stock, blue insignia sheet and very nice full size plans with templates, text instructions and even the color scheme. Complete and never started. NOTE: Master Modelcraft advertises this as a CR-40. Most reference material I have shows a CR40 with a radial engine, which this model clearly does not have. The in-line engine and the lines of the ship align much more with a CR-42DB, CR30 or CR32. I believe it is actually one of those three and they simply made an error in the name.

Guillows Jetfire Glider - Bagged

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed

$34   

Still factory sealed. This 15 Cent issue from the late 1960s or early 1970s. The famous and popular Jetfire features a light-weight plastic canopy with pilot outline and completely diecut balsawood parts with colorful red printing. It can be assembled in less than a minute and was ready to fly! 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 2014.
