Leddy Amphibian Jeep Ford GPA, 1/14, A-60

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$79   

Rare. From the 1940s. Very large, true-scale model. Highly detailed for that time and measures 13 inches in length when built. The photo on the box top shows the actual built model. Features a great number of factory cut and shaped hardwood parts, fully formed hardwood wheels, metal stock as required, a sealed wax paper bag of small fittings of wood and metal, and more. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags.

Not much is known of Leddy Model Industries except that they were located in Watsonville, California and their kits were of exceptional quality for that time. We know that Leddy made a VC-2 Victory Ship, a US Army Amphibian Jeep, kit number A-60 in large scale (1 3/4" = 5") and also A-50 US Army Jeep.'

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$125   

1959 issue with 'Famous Fighters' in the sunburst oval and dramatic Jo Kotula artwork. The box is in investment-grade 'near mint' condition with factory-fresh color and gloss, four solid corners, no tape, tape marks, price tags or tag marks, no fading and no litho loss. The only flaw is very light corner wear at the lower left. Molded in dark olive drab and clear with the famous Aurora 'Triangle Globe' clear base. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions and even the original tissue paper. The truly remarkable thing is that the decals are flat and in mint condition with absolutely no yellowing. The instructions are almost mint and have only the slightest yellowing - they are by far the 'whitest' copy I have ever seen.

Guillows Nieuport 11 - 24 inch Wingspan for Free Flight or Rubber Power, 1/12, 203

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$27   

Sale Pending
Email for availability.

Still factory sealed. Recent reissue of the classic 1960s kit featuring all laser cut balsa parts, scale plastic radial engine and cowl, plastic wheels and prop, a full set of decals, tissue covering, rubber motor, firewall, super detailed plans and more. 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.
