Hobby Craft Vought F4U-4 Corsair - US Marines VMF-312 (Ex-Idea / Ex-Monogram) - (F4U4), 1/48, HC1511

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


Some molds have a colorful history; this one is no exception. At one point, Monogram leased or sold a set of Corsair molds (from the original 4 Star action kit) to Idea in Korea. Idea copied the molds, modifying them with a tab on each tree with the Idea name. Hobby Craft's kit is the Idea copy of the Monogram Corsair (right down to the blue and black parts) with the Idea tab. On the outside of many Hobby Craft boxes it says 'Make in South Korea' - obviously Idea is one of the agents who molded kits for HC. 'Working Action Model' with many features; wings fold, landing gear and tail wheel retract and all gear doors close, working arresting gear and rotating wheels and prop. Under-wing stores feature missiles, bombs and drop tanks. Includes decals for Marine version. The kit has never been started.

Revell US CG Cutter Eagle with Sails - 'S' Issue, 1/254, H347-298

First issue dated 1957. As with most early Revell sailing ship kits, it is very nicely molded and well detailed. Includes rigging instructions, rigging material and vacuform billowing sails. Molded in three colors - ivory, light wood tan and dark brown wood. The kit has never been started. NOTE: missing #70, 71 boomkins (tripod made from straight cylinders) and #20 galley stack.

Premier 1910 Ford Model T Type, 1/32, 600-49

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


1950s issue with excellent box art. The kit inside is a near-copy of the Highway Pioneers Model T. Premier intended to capitalize on the Gowland/Revell 1/32 classic car popularity; how well they did is unknown. The box art is definitely better than it's rival, but the kit is more basic. Molded in black with a metal wire frame windshield. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including instructions.

Gowland & Gowland Mayflower Shipyard Ships in Miniature, 310-S

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++


Rare, early, small scale ship kit from 1952. Very nicely detailed and molded, especially for that era. Includes sails, molded sea display base and clear sheet plastic with the delicately printed ratlines. The scale is not given, but the sea base measures 6.5"x2" and the ship is approximately 5 inches long. Includes beautiful color instructions with the ship history, illustrations of assembly, how to set the sails and photos for rigging. This kit has never been started and is still in the original 'krinkle' bag. The bag has typical splitting, so it has been placed inside a zip-lock bag so that no parts will be lost. Includes instructions. The box sides illustrates and names the 10 kits of this line. All were available in regular (such as this kit) or 'Ship In A Bottle' versions. the 'Bottle' was also available separately. The entire set consists of the Santa Maria 1492, Golden Hind 1588, Mayflower 1620, Bon Homme Richard 1779, SS Savannah 1819, The Flying Cloud 1849, Charles W. Morgan 1850, Gertrude L. Thebaud 1929, Frigate Constitution 1797 and US Revenue cutter 1849. It appears that Gowland & Gowland has not received the credit that it deserves in the plastic kit revolution that took America by storm in the early 1950s. Gowland developed the first all plastic car made in the USA in 1950, the 1911 Maxwell. Even more interesting is that Kevin and Jack Gowland developed the 'Highway Pioneers' in 1951 which heralded the future for the American Hobby Industry. The reason that Gowland's name is not in the fore-front of model history is that Precision Specialties (later Revell) did the distribution for Gowland.

Hudson Miniatures 1911 Mercer Raceabout Old Timers, 1/16

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Very well detailed large 1/16 kit from 1949. Features plastic wheels, grill, steering wheel, lights and other accessories and wooden and metal 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. J. Fetterolf of Buckingham, PA. This kit has never been started. Some small parts are still in the internally sealed factory bag and the other parts have been been inventoried complete with all parts, plans and instructions. 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. The 1911 Mercer Raceabout is one of the rarest American cars. The Mercer was built in Trenton, NJ and powered by a 30 hp T head 4 cylinder engine. Displacement was 300.7 cubic inches and the car had a wet clutch four speed transmission. The car weighed 2,500 lbs and cost $2600 and could do 112 mph. The Mercer was perhaps the most famous sports car of the time. It was rugged, handled very well and had excellent performance.

Aurora Nieuport II Sealed, 1/48, 101-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint


Factory sealed. 1960s issue. This is part of the famous Aurora WWI series of 1/48 scale aircraft. The series began in 1956 and Aurora added new kits into the early 1960s. The line proved incredibly popular, so these kits were included in the 'mold upgrade' in the 1970s before Aurora went out of business.

Airmodel Dornier Do-17 P-1 - Reconnaissance Bomber Conversion with Decals - (Do17P1) - Bagged, 1/72

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint
