Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond.

Guillows Albatros D-VA - 18 inch Wingspan Flying Airplane, WW-1

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

One of a very popular line of World War 1 flying aircraft stick and tissue kits with 18 inch wingspan. Kit features scale plastic wheels, plastic propeller, light vacuform nose cowl, die cut balsa parts, covering tissue, rubber motor and full decals. Includes full size detailed 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.

Molded in gloss olive drab and clear with one piece wings. Has original rectangular clear stand. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good to Sealed NM

Sold

Over 90% are intact and not broken; the few with broken parts include the parts. There are about 29 airliners (DC-9s, Convair 880s, 727s, 747s, 707s, DC-10 and DC-8). There are some duplicates. Most of the boxes are correct; but some boxes do not contain the aircraft listed on the outside. All are various liveries and again there are some duplicates. There are two military aircraft, a Blue Angels F-4 Phantom II and a Thunderbirds T-38. Sold as-is.
