Hawk Gee Bee Racer - 1932 Thompson Trophy Winner, 1/48, 627-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$32   

1960 hardbox issue with artwork by Bill Campbell. The Gee Bee was designed and built by Granville Brothers Aircraft Inc. of Springfield, Massachusetts. The radical design has a wingspan of only 25 feet and a length of 19 feet and 9 inches. The power plant was a supercharged Pratt & Whitney Wasp with an output of 800 hp through a Smith controllable-pitch propeller. Designed specifically to win air races and set speed records, the Gee Bee was a very fast but aerodynamically unstable aircraft. It's most famous pilot, Jimmy Doolittle, flew the ship to victory then walked away, saying that he would never fly it again. Many lost their lives in this legendary but unforgiving aircraft. Never started. 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions.

Guillows Spitfire - 16 inch Wingspan Rubber Powered Balsa Wood Kit, 504

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$22   

From the 1960s. One of a very popular 16.5 inch wingspan series of World War 2 stick and tissue flying kits. Includes die cut balsa parts, vacuform nose, wheels, plastic propeller, hardware, vacuform canopy, colored tissue, insignia and full size plans with detailed building instructions. 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.
