Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor

$125   

For the advanced Revell collector. Revell was a toy maker long before they teamed with Gowland & Gowland for the first Highway Pioneers series that revolutionized the hobby of mainstream model building. Revell's associated with Gowland went back to the pure toy days before injection molded models. One such creation in 1950 was a large scale 1/16 Maxwell automobile. The toy was a huge success. Then the Highway Pioneers took off...but Revell was not ready to give up on toys yet. In 1952 they issued a 1/16 scale counterpart to the Maxwell- this 1917 Model T Ford. It has a very unique features - when you pull the tow cord, it backfires! On the bottom is a cap gun style mechanism and the 'bang!' is made by real gunpowder from caps. The Ford is in perfect condition. There are no cracks, warps, missing parts or scratched paint. it is a little dirty, however. On the underside, the cap mechanism is as new and works flawlessly. The box is poor - it is tattered and missing the top. The instructions on both sides for the cap loading are still legible.

Revell 1911 Rolls Royce Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H46-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$42   

1953 issue, the first year for the 'Series Three' Highway Pioneers. The box is excellent, and the inside has never been started. It is still factory sealed in the 'krinkle' bag. Complete with instructions. Molded in deep burgundy plastic. Before the 1950s 'model building' as a hobby did not even make the top 10 list of boys 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 mover in proving that model building as a hobby could have mass appeal, provided that the kits were easy enough to build and finish. They could be built in an hour after dinner and looked like the real car. The 'Highway Pioneers' series helped lead to the production of other subjects in plastic. The effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, 'model building' was the # 1 past time of American boys.
