Hudson Miniatures 1910 International Harvester Passenger Car, 1/16

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$85   

Very well detailed large 1/16 kit from 1949. Features plastic wheels, grill, headlamps, spotlight, running lights and other accessories and wooden main parts. Although all of Hudson's 1/16 kits have excellent detail, this one has even more detail than usual thanks to Hudson's engineers having access to the actual car owned by Mr. James Melton. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including detailed plans/instructions. As a note, few people even knew that International Harvester even made a passenger car. Not many were produced and very, very few are in existence. Jim Melton's car, the car examined by Hudson engineers, was likely given to him as a promotion as he was a popular opera singer and the star of International Harvester's radio show 'Harvest of the Stars'. The car was very solidly built to last and reportedly gave excellent service. Why IH did not pursue production is not known. Hudson Miniatures created a very popular line of automobile kits in a constant 1/16 scale shortly after WWII. The kits sold very well...so well that you could argue that Gowland & Gowland borrowed Hudson's subject matter for their ground-breaking 'Highway Pioneers.' The Hudson Miniatures 'Old Timers' even spawned a line of imitators, with Fador's 'Smallster' being one of the better in quality. Sales did drop on the appearance and popularity of the much smaller (and less accurate) Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' in 1951. When the all-injection molded Gowland kits proved not to be a passing fad, Hudson quickly planned and released his own all-plastic, small-scale competition called 'Lil' Old Timers Quickie Kits.' The kits were of excellent quality, but it was too little too late. Additionally, sales of the excellent wooden kits faltered further in the next few years with the introduction of accurate, 1/24 and 1/32 all-plastic cars in the mid 1950s. This forced Hudson to discontinue the wood kits and the plastic line was sold to Revell and subsequently re-released. Today, these excellent, big 1/16 kits are often the only model available of these early automobiles. In the mid 1960s Aurora thought so highly of Hudson Miniatures that they purchased the wood kit assets and released a very small number of these in all-plastic models.

KP Avia CS-199 (Bf-109) - Two-Seat Fighter Trainer Czech Air Force, 1/72

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$12   

Unique kit of this domestically produced Czech two seat fighter trainer based on the Me-109. When the Germans left Czechoslovakia in 1945, the Avia Works completed a small number of Bf-109G-6 and G-14 airframes with abandoned German engines. The single seat aircraft were designated S-99 and the two seater CS-99. Due to a shortage of DB-605 engines, Avia adapted Jumo-211 engines and the single seat S-199 and 2 seat CS-199 were born. First flown in 1949, 82 CS-199s were produced and remained in service till the mid 1950s when they were replaced by MIG-15UTI or CS-102 trainers. Kit includes detailed descriptions and markings markings for three historically significant aircraft. Cleanly molded with very fine raised panel line details and good dual cockpit detail. Nicely detailed. The model as never been started. The parts are either still in the factory sealed bag or have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. KP stood for Kovozavody Prostejov. Many USA builders had their first exposure to Eastern Block kits in the 1980s from KP. Although they certainly cannot compete with recent Tamiya or Hasegawa kits, they were nicely detailed for their time and can be built up into some beautiful and unique models.
