Guillows Fairchild 24 - 25 inch Wingspan - R/C Control Line or Rubber Powered Kit, 701

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$26   

From 1967. Large and well detailed stick and tissue kit. Can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using today's small and light servos and receivers.

The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals 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.

Midwest Fortastrop - 36 inch Wingspan Free Flight Airplane for Sport or Competition, FG-6

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$125   

From the 1940s. Flying model aircraft predated powered flight; however, balsa wood and printwood were not introduced until the early 1930s and the hobby took off, as well as the hunt for thermals. Gas flight began in the early 1930s, and gas powered models, all powered by Brown engines, took home so many awards that they were forever separated from rubber powered models. Design of gas models was tricky since RC could not yet be applied to the mass market; so a gas model had to not only fly and climb under power, but then glide sufficiently - all without any operator inputs once the airplane took off. Getting the wing up out of the propeller airflow was a huge improvement, and this type of design proliferated. This is one example of a parasol style 1940s free-flight competition aircraft designed by FS Garcher. Quality kit includes printwood, strip wood, wheels, tissue and beautiful full size plans. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.
