Revell Cutty Sark Clipper Ship - 3 Feet Long, 1/96, H364-995

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG-

Sold   

First issue of this kit dated 1960. Large and highly detailed kit. Measures 36 inches long when built. Since this is the first issue, the model has the factory painted copper hull below the waterline. The factory paint is in very good condition with minimal wear. Since this is a first edition it also contains the booklet about the Cutty Sark and a sheet 'From The Log Of The Cutty Sark',. Kit features highly detailed deck, deck houses, cargo holds and covers, masts, yards and booms, bilge pump, windlass, 20 crew figure, and lifeboats with oars, life preservers, anchors and anchor chains. Includes draftline and transom decals, figurehead, finely detailed hull, preformed ratlines and molded deadeyes, pin rails and blocks, full standing rigging instructions and diagrams, flag sheet, thread and chain for rigging. Molded in three colors. NOTE: this kit has never been assembled but it has some painting on a hull half. That half has the interior section above the deck painted white, which is correct. Also a small section of the outside is painted black and there are two small touchups to the copper hull paint. The quality of the work is very good. The other hull half is untouched and there is no other painting on the model. The parts have been removed from the trees and the kit is inventoried 100% complete with all parts, four colors and thicknesses of thread, two sizes of metal chain, decals, flags, running/standing rigging instructions and building instructions. The box top looks better than the the 'VG-' grade, but is graded such since all four corners were neatly repaired from the inside. The lower box was tattered so a new lower box was made from gray medium weight cardboard.

Scientific 1910 Maxwell Two Seat Roadster, 1/24, 173-1295

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

From 1969. One of the finest wood and metal car kits ever produced. The car measures 7 inches long when assembled. The kit is very highly detailed. Features complete engine, exhaust, suspension and drive line - the kit builds up a rolling chassis just like the actual automobile. There are many cast metal parts- springs, horn, brake lever, steering wheel, flywheel, cowl lamps, steering knuckles, wheels, radiator, radiator screen, louvered hood, fenders and more. The engine itself is 17 parts. The tires are real rubber. The wood parts are either pre-shaped or on printwood with some stock materials. Includes clear windows, pre-cut convertible top material, two large sheets of full size plans, a sheet of photo taken of the completed model, detailed instructions, a hardwood display stand and more. The kit has never been started. The parts that were internal factory sealed are still sealed, and all other parts have been inventoried 100% complete including instructions and plans. Scientific may have planned an extensive line of these uniquely detailed kits - however, this was the only one ever issued. The very steep price of 12.95 in 1969 was probably more than enough to ensure a short production run and termination of the idea.

Revell 1910 Ford Model T - Highway Pioneers US Antique Series Issue, 1/32, H32-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

1956 issue molded in black plastic. The kit has not been started. It has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Before the 1950s 'model building' never made the top 10 list of boy's activities. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream. Shortly after the turn of the century, many dedicated modelers built flying or static airplanes, ship, train, automotive or other subjects. Basic kits existed, but the majority of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s. The phenomenon of the Revell/Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' car kits was a significant force in proving that model building as a hobby could have mass appeal, provided that the kits were easy enough to build and finish. These 1/32 scale vehicles could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real car. The Highway Pioneers series lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys.

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.
