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

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$28   

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.

Sterling British SE-5 Scout - 32 inch Wingspan Flying Model, C6

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$119   

Superb kit from the 1960s and 'the winner of many national and international contests and "One of the few able to execute the stunt pattern." Designed for control line flight with .19 to .35 engines. Features detailed metal radiator, cleanly die-cut balsa and plywood parts that are inter-notched for fast and easy assembly, shaped and notched leading and trailing edges, rock maple hardwood motor mounts, material for machine guns, gas model silkspan, formed wire landing gear, hardware pack, authentic decals, extensive full size plans and more. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I personally considered Sterlings to be 'deluxe' kits.
