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. Well detailed with scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, vacuform nose/cowl and engine, full color decals, colored tissue, die cut balsa parts, rubber motor, plywood firewall and excellent 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, 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.

Comet Bell Pursuit XP-39 Airacobra, 1/72

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor

$37   

Very rare and early kit, most likely from 1938. This appears to be the prototype XP-39 with the side radiator scoops. Kit features fuselage block, printwood wings, horizontal and vertical stabilizer, side radiators, nose wheel, and nose strut, while the factory small paper bag contains 2 fully finished main gear wheels, fully formed metal main gear struts, balsa stock and a propeller. The plans features three view drawings, detail and assembly drawings, fuselage and wing templates, paint guide ("Entire Model Is Silver") and cut out insignia for the tail flash, national markings and US ARMY. The plans are complete but have some short to medium edge and fold tears in three places. The box is the one-piece type and is missing the small and main flap on one end. They are present on the opposite end. There is tearing on the sides and bottom. I have graded it 'poor' but it actually displays better.
