Guillows Nieuport 27 - 18 inch Wingspan Rubber Powered Balsa Wood Kit, WW-8

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

NOTE: builder kit only, please read carefully. One of a very popular line of World War 1 flying aircraft stick and tissue kits with 18 inch wingspan. Kit only includes the following: complete set of die-cut printwood, light weight plastic cowl and full size plans with detailed instructions. Never started. There are no other parts present. 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.

Please NOTE that while the kit is fine, the box has crushing damage shown on the right side in the photo. Lindberg is a company with a fascinating history The original 'Lindberg Line' stretches back to the 1930s when Paul Lindberg drew plans for famous modeling magazines and marketed his balsa wood 'stick and tissue' by urging dealers to carry the '...Complete Lindberg Line'. After the war, Lindberg and Olsen had a strong hand in early United States injection molded kit development. Please see the article located on this website about early USA plastic kit manufactures.

Aurora Piper Apache, 1/64, 280-39

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

1963 issue and still the only injection molded Apache kit. From ex-Comet molds. Features all recessed panel lines, clear windows, rotating propellers and color decals. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Aurora had started a line of inexpensive 29 cent kits in about 1957. The line was a success, and it was expanded. The line grew again when Aurora purchased the Comet molds, as most of Comet's line was very small scale kits, many of them civil aircraft like this one. It appears that Aurora was encouraged by the sale of the ex-Comet civil aircraft, as it expanded the line with it's own molds in the early 1960s.

Hobby Craft Avro CF-105 Arrow, 1/72, HC1392

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

Sold   

Still factory sealed but the seal has multiple splits. Nicely molded with all recessed panel lines. Includes decals for aircraft 201 through 205. This is the fantastic all-Canadian replacement for the CF-100 that was canceled immediately before the first production airframes left the assembly line. The prototypes had flown a great number of hours and the airplane was a great success. The cancellation of the project is in some ways still a mystery today in some aviation circles.

Still factory sealed. Around 1949 the USAF assigned a high priority to all weather fighter design and deployment. Most manufactures built traditional two seat machines, such as the F-94.

Although more than a ton heavier than the F-86, the Dog was the fasted aircraft of it's day and set several world records. 2,504 were built and formed the backbone of America's air defense system in the 1950s. Markings for 498th FIS and 97th FIS "Dennis the Menace". Very highly detailed. Features all recessed panel lines, detailed cockpit, detailed wheel wells, optional position leading edge slats and wing flaps, drop tanks, optional position speed brakes, canopy and rocket tray and a well detailed tow tractor.
