Revell 1913 Mercedes-Benz - Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H54-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

1959 issue molded in green plastic. This issues still says '1953 Gowland & Gowland' as a copyright on the instructions. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including 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.

ITC Savoia-Marchetti S-55 Flying Boat - Ringo Issue, 1/96, C548-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG++

Sold   

Still factory sealed but the box is only good. The first aircraft to fly across the Atlantic in formation! The S-55 was a unique aircraft with the passenger compartments in the floats and the cockpit in the wing; the two engines are mounted in tandem push/pull above the cockpit. The S-55 proved to be very reliable and airworthy, setting 14 world records for speed, altitude and distance with a payload. Three months before Lindbergh's solo Atlantic flight, and S-55 flew with stops from Italy to Rio and NY City. In 1933 Marshal Balbo led 25 S-55s to Chicago in about 48 hours. He then flew back without incident. This is from the original ITC molds. Ringo was in charge of cleaning out ITC inventory when ITC quit the model business.
