It's been months since I have bought someone else's junk and restored it.  

Stick and tissue construction but I don't recognize it.  Help! - Guillows?  Maybe not, the engine nacelles and cockpit area look to nice.  I would think that it's a combination of stick/tissue and vacuum formed parts.

Not to far away, I can pick it up and save shipping destruction by USPS.

That would be something to see fly.  The right wing looks like it was glued back on.  I recently picked up a plastic Revell kit to hang up in my office, one of these days.  Good luck!

Not going to happen.

Some nibbler nibbled his way past my one-time proxy bid of $122.51. I bid just once, what it's worth to me, that's it. Judging by the positions of the needle valves I'm sure the engines are just Babe Bees. Were they Black Widows or Golden Bees, I might had bid more.

Maybe it as $50 each for the BB’s and $50 for the Balsa airframe? I saw it, didn’t place a bid either.
If ya want a puzzle to restore, I can send you my PBY catalina, i bought it just for the medallions. Raccoons knocked the box of the shelf in the garage, I think I picked up most of the pieces. The plastics are all brittle and broke.

Thanks Rene, but maybe it was a blessing. My fingers aren't as nimble as they once were. They work ok for cranking on a breaker bar but not so good for assembling fragile balsa pieces. Sad
