The kit features very fine panel lines, highly detailed cockpit and engine, removable cowling and optional position canopy, working flaps and drop tank/bomb load. There are decals for three Japanese aircraft and one for a captured USAAF evaluation aircraft. There is also the Revell Japan full color large print of two of the aircraft that can be built.

The parts that were not factory sealed (wings and cowl only) have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions. This box has clear tape along all bottom sides.

Guillows Douglas A-1H Skyraider - 16 inch Wingspan Rubber Powered Flying Model, 904-130

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$18   

Roughly 1980s scale stick and tissue rubber powered flying model. Includes die cut balsa parts, vacuform nose/spinner, wheels, metal landing gear, plastic propeller, hardware, vacuform canopy, colored tissue, insignia and full size plans with detailed 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 2014.

William H Low Co Holloway Hook And Ladder Truck 1880 - Wilo Line Fire Truck, 1/24, CL120

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$169   

Very, very rare. Mr. Low himself proclaimed this to be "...the handsomest in the Willoline." Likely from the 1940s. William H Low Co., of Braintree Mass., issued the 'Wilo Line' which included a superb series of antique commercial firefighting equipment. The scale is given as 1/2" and the finished wagon is well over 12 inches long with the ladders, and even bigger with the 6" front carriage bar. The kits were very advanced for the time and shared many of the pre-fabrication methods of Hudson Miniatures. This kit is based on the 1880 Holloway Manufacturing Company prototype. Features plastic injection molded spoke wheels, precut large hardwood parts such as completed tanks, fully formed ladder frames, pre-cut ladder rungs, extinguishers and more, a sealed bag of smaller parts including a great many fully carved wood with more of metal and plastic, brass screen, a variety of metal stock as needed, sandpaper, complete instructions with detailed plans and full text step-by-step guide and even a big photo of the actual prototype. The kit has never been started. The small parts are either internal factory bag sealed or inventoried complete; the parts that were never sealed are inventoried complete including instructions/plans. The kits in this line include CH110 Combination Hose Wagon, FC15 Chemical and Reel Carts, F16 Horses in the same scale, CL120 Hook And Ladder, CL120 (again) City Service Ladder (a completely different kit from the previous one), FC180 Combination Chemical Wagon, FH130 Hose Wagon, FP7 Amoskeag Steamer, CR110 Service Hose Reel, FL10 Aerial Ladder, F18 Chemical Engine and more. In most cases they are the only kits in existence of these historic vehicles. Bill Low did design at least one 'non-fire truck' kit in his Will-O-Line - a Conestoga Wagon, advertised as being 1/24 scale, kit #B14 for $2.85 list as "This is another Museum Piece by Bill Low." After seeing these fire truck kits, I do not doubt that.
