Gowland & Gowland Bonne Homme Richard - Shipyard Ships in Miniature

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$25   

Rare early ship kit from 1952. Very nicely detailed and molded, especially for that era. Includes sails, molded base and clear sheet plastic with the ratlines printed on them to simplify assembly. 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. This kit has never been started and is still sealed in the original 'krinkle' bag. 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. The Shipyard in Miniature contains 9 ships total: Bon Homme Richard, Constitution, Revenue cutter, the Savannah, Flying Cloud, Gertrude L. Thebaud, Golden Hind, Mayflower and Santa Maria.

Pacific Pike 40' Single Sheathed Wood Box Car - Canadian National - - Wood and Metal HO Craftsman Kit With Sprung Metal Trucks, 1/87, BX-2

Features precut and milled hardwood roof, cut sides and floor, prescribed and factory painted and lettered hardwood sides, and ends and other parts cut to size, metal and wood stock as required, metal detail parts, detailed full size plans with instructions. This kit is designed for full underside car detail - for advanced modelers only but well worth the effort. The kit has never been started.

Nichimo Mitsubishi J2M3 Raiden Jack, 1/72, S7201-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$18   

Early 1960s Japanese kit with very collectible box art and high gloss box top. Nicely molded and detailed. Features moving control surfaces, retracting landing gear and rotating prop and wheels. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The instructions show a motorizing option, but the sealed parts included a normal clear Nichimo stand - which is not shown with the instructions. So this is likely a later issue with no provision for motorizing but still with the old instructions.
