Alliance Curtiss XP-37 / H751, 1/72, 72018

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$46   

Rare. Beautifully cast in high-definition resin with all fine recessed panel lines, cockpit, optional position landing gear and full decal. The kit has never been started.

This aircraft was an adaptation of the P-36 fighter with the liquid-cooled Allison V-1710-C7 12 cylinder engine installed. A turbo-supercharger was installed, and this aircraft achieved an impressive 340 mph at 20,000 feet in 1937. However, it suffered from frequent turbo-supercharger failures. An order for 13 service aircraft followed on December 11, 1937. The first service models delivered between April 29 1939 and December 5, 1939 were designated YP-37. All aircraft suffered from mechanical problems, and the US Army Air Force discontinued all further development.

Planet Models F-91 III Thunderceptor Radar Version (XF-91B), 1/72, 143

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$52   

Rare. Beautiful resin kit with all fine recessed panel lines, detailed cockpit, two vacuform canopies, separately molded elevator and rudder control surfaces, detailed gear wells, drop tanks and full decals. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The famous 1948 Thunderceptor was a very advanced design, but hybrid jet and rocket engine system created problems, among other things. When newer, cheaper all-weather designs such as the Convair F-102 became available, the test flying program slowed down and the USAF lost interest. Republic's response was this aircraft, a modified XF-91 with a radar nose, designated XF-91B All-Weather Fighters. This was the second prototype, and it was eventually destroyed. But the original XF-91 is preserved at the USAF Museum in Dayton, Ohio.

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Never started and complete. 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.
