Aurora Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker, 1/125, 143-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint


Still mint in the factory seal. Dated 1963 and from the larger (1/125 scale) of the two ex-Comet molds. Kit features cockpit and cabin clear windows and full landing gear and a 'tanker' rear end and flying boom (although the box art does not show it). Molded in gloss gray and clear. This model was given a clear Aurora two piece 'triangle world' stand, unlike many of the other Comet kits which only had a modified version of their original stands included. Of course this is not the production KC-135 but a model of the Boeing prototype.

Pyro Chevrolet 1937 Custom Convertible, 1/32, C299-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc-


Late 1960s Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of it's kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. This model is nicely detailed and has a tree of chrome parts and clear parts also. The box states that it can be converted to a 'road racing' or slot car. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. NOTE: one very small bumper brace on the body has broken off and missing - the other side is intact so one can be scratch built from stock plastic.

Guillows Cessna L-19 Bird Dog - 18 inch Wingspan Flying Model, 50-3

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


The plans are dated 1954. Nice smaller kit features Includes die cut balsa parts, vacuform nose, plastic wheels & propeller, hardware (prop shaft, bearing), vacuform clear canopy and windows, insignia (on the plans) and full size plans with building instructions. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. 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.
