Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: VG
Very old 1932 issue from Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Company. Ideal was one of the first US model airplane producers, starting their business in 1911. During the early years of the Great Depression, Ideal switched to balsa wood and soon released a line of 'Six Inch Wingspread' solid scale models in a line called 'Ideal Midget-Craft'. Adds for this line can be seen in Model Airplane News and other major popular aircraft publications of the 1930s. The models included plans and the required wood and usually retailed for about 10 cents. This aircraft has been started, which in this case is good news. The fuselage from Ideal was simply wooden stock. The original builder has carved the fuselage very accurately and correctly to about 90% finished. No other work has been done and no other parts have been cut out of the printwood. The model is complete and would be easy to finish.

Kit includes both models. The Avro was one of the first British aircraft and the Curtiss Golden Flyer was the Speed trophy winner at Reims in France. These are unique and accurate kits. The original internal frame structure and details of the aircraft is built from injection molded plastic. When complete, it is covered with a very strong fabric which is included. The result is a very realistic aircraft. The kits have never been started. Both have been inventoried complete including instructions.

The He-114 was a two-seat float plane designed in 1935 to replace the He-60 in the role of shipboard reconnaissance. A number of engines were tried in the prototypes and the design frozen by 1938 for production. Although somewhat dated by WWII standards, it did see action for about half the war. Before hostilities began, 12 were sold to Sweden.

SALE!! Still factory sealed and in investment-grade condition. From the 1970s. Large scale, well detailed model that can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight or converted to electric RC using modern small and light equipment. Well detailed with scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform engine cowl and spinner, full color decals, colored 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.

Still factory sealed. From 1993. The scale and size are not given, but the box is 10 x 8.5 x 3 inches. In regards to the scale, Dusty Rhodes emailed me this- 'I understand from several sources the length of an adult Triceratops is supposed to be about thirty feet or so. So I'm thinking, if the box is anything like (most) AMT kits, the kit body length might be around 8 inches orsomething, which would put the kit possibly around 1/48. Now that's significant...Because it opens up all kinds of diorama possibilities with the Aurora armor series, in celebration of those 60's era comic books depictingSgt. Rock or somebody and his U.S. Army squad fighting dinosaurs. ' Fantastic!! Has this type of diorama been done yet?
