Airfix Short Sunderland Craftmaster, 1/72, 1-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM


SALE! Hardbox is in investment-grade 'near mint' condition with as-new color and gloss, four solid corners, no tape or tags, no fading and no tears. There is only light edge wear. A merchant ship is sinking on the left and the crew is in lifeboats in the foreground on lower side panel. The Sunderland is preparing to rescue them, while the other Sunderland depth-charges the U-boat responsible for the sinking. The Sunderland's 21-year record with the RAF has made it a legend. Derived from the Empire Class Flying Boat Airliners, Sunderland IIIs had a top speed of 210 mph and an endurance of 12 hours. These qualities made the Sunderland a superb platform for North Sea and North Atlantic patrols, ASW and SAR. Crews usually loved the airplane; its large size afforded many airborne comforts that bomber or fighter crews could only dream of, such as bunk, a head and an area for food preparation. Kit features beaching gear, rotating turrets with elevating guns, movable control surfaces, external bomb load and rotating props. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Guillows De Havilland DH-80A Puss Moth - 24 inch Wingspan RC/CL/Rubber Powered Kit, 306

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+


From the 1960s. Can be flown rubber free flight, gas free flight, or converted to electric RC using modern servos and receivers. A very nice kit featuring die cut balsa parts, die-cut plywood firewall, completely finished wheels, wood propeller (should be plastic!), vacuform nose, rubber motor, hardware, clear window material, very large decal sheet, green colored tissue and excellent full size plans. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions, except NOTE there is a wood prop instead of the plastic one it should have. The PUss Moth was the first aircraft to make a solo crossing of the Atlantic OCean from east to west. 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.

These are the excellent horses, which are almost never seen. The animals are the correct scale for the equipment and come with a harness kit that used the Boston FD stand-by harness as the prototype. Includes detailed text instructions with excellent illustrations and even a painting guide for the harness equipment and the horse. The harness is still in the internal factory sealed bag and the horses are complete with instructions/plans.
