“Guillows” is a name that needs no introduction. It’s one many modelers have come to know and trust as the source of some of the most popular kits produced over the last 75 years. Well-known for their classic designs, the folks at Guillows are still hard at work today laser cutting some of their most famous WW I kits. This is the first Guillows ad ever to grace the pages of Model Airplane News. It appeared in the February 1933 issue.
