WOODEN STAGE COACH MODEL KIT
Wooden You Rather Use Wood?
Who woodn’t, really? In a world of plastics, it’s hard to beat a model fashioned from pieces of dead trees. You pick from our assortment of pre-cut unfinished wood models made for ages 8+, and all you add is wood glue, paint, sandpaper and simple hand tools: the 12-piece drag racer will measure 6-3/4” long x 2” tall; the 35-piece steam engine will measure 7-3/8” long x 4-3/8” tall; and the 46-piece stage coach will be 8-7/8” long x 5-7/8” tall. (Sorry, no horses.)

RUBBER BAND LAUNCH ARROW COPTER
Arrowcopter
Shoot one of these little plastic arrow-helicopter-rotor gismos straight up with the included rubber band launcher and watch it soar as far as 300 feet! A fun outdoor toy that grows in sophistication as you learn how to adjust the arrowcopter for wind conditions and flight patterns: distance, return, circular descent etc. Our "each" contains a package of two (2). Recommended for kids over the age of 9.

WOODEN SPIRIT OF ST. LOUIS MODEL
Wooden Your Rather Have Wood?
Return with us now to those golden days of yesteryear, when models were made of wood. You pick the successful Spirit of St. Louis airplane, 5-1/2” long with a 7-3/4” wingspan, or the less-successful model Titanic, 7-1/4” long. You’ll need to supply your own glue, sandpaper, paint and tiny iceberg or Charles Lindbergh.

STAR WARS™ X-WING FIGHTER MODEL
The Star Fleet Was Wooden!
Must have been, because we’ve got licensed, official Star Wars™ X-Wing Fighter and Tie Fighter models in laser-cut wood. The X-Wing has (73) plywood pieces and will measure approx 5” x 4-3/8” x 7/8”. The Tie Fighter has (63) pieces and measures nearly square 3-3/8” x 4-1/2”. Both include step-by-step assembly instructions and coloring ideas, and come with a 32-page booklet written by Michael Kogge. Both are press-fit models with no glue or tools needed. For ages 12+, they’re complex and perhaps not for clumsier earthlings. Made for Incredibuilds™ and the Disney Company.

UNDERSEA EXPLORER DIVING SUBMARINE
Diving Submarine
Back in the days when technology was a good guy, and cereal boxes  came with real toys, kids got diving submarines that they charged with baking powder and played with in the bath tub. Now kids can have the same fun again. We have found a (gray!) submarine, about 4-1/2" long, that can dive and surface up to a dozen times with a single charge of the baking powder that you get to supply. Comes with instructions and made in the USA.

MIGHTY SELTZER POWERED ROCKET
Seltzer Power!
Incendiary rocket fuel? We don't need no stinkin' incendiary rocket fuel. We got the Mighty Seltzer Rocket! The seltzer rocket, made of simple plastic parts. (No, don't lean over it!. That's not a foam nose cone, you know!) The 4-1/4" x 1-1/4" dia seltzer rocket that holds water and (1) dissolving seltzer tablet. The rocket that has shot almost 30 feet in the air for us. It comes with (4) antacid tablets, just like those you can buy at the drug store -- and it's basic science at its best!

RUBBER BAND PADDLE BOAT
Your Grandfather's Paddlewheeler
It's kinda pretty, and pretty simple, this old-fashioned rubber band-powered boat. Wind the paddle, watch it ride the waves, or bathtub. Measures 5-3/4" x 2-1/2"x 11/16" in varnished pine and even comes with spare rubber bands.

FLYING SPITFIRE AIRPLANE MODEL
Yer Own Private Battle Of Britain
Fly your very own replicas of the Battle of Britain planes with these Guillow’s laser-cut balsa and tissue models of the Messerschmitt BF-109 and Supermarine Spitfire MK-1. These are rubber-band propelled flying models made to accurate scale, each including a plastic nose cowl,  wheels, canopy and prop. Both have a 16-1/2" wingspan. You get a 24-page booklet with each, plus authentic decals.

AIR LAUNCHED STOMP ROCKET
STOMPIN' AT THE SAVOY
Or maybe not. Hotel managers get funny about rocket launches, but this is NASA-level fun for the backyard, or maybe a cheap motel parking lot. The Stomp Rocket™ uses no batteries, fuel, diet cola or anything else but your feet. And good stomp on the 4" X 8" "Blast Pad" can get you 200 feet of lift at speeds up to 100mph. You get (4) bright yellow plastic rockets, 9" long x 7/8" dia, with soft, round nose cones (bulbs?) for safety's sake, and a tripod gantry. Fine adjustments even allow for accuracy contests. If the neighbors have really high roofs, or you manage to achieve orbit, we've got a (2) pack of replacement rockets.
