I have seen these models built and they look identical to the real prototypes. The kit has not been started and is complete with all parts, sealed smaller details and plans.

1953 issue. Molded in the correct white, red and gold. Includes two highly detailed horses, hitch, carriage with frame detail, rubber hose, rope and metal chain, along with two firefighters and a Dalmatian dog. Inside the kit is still as new. It has never been started and all parts are still in the original box cello seal. Marlin first cut the molds in 1952 and issued the six original American Firefighters (Chemical and Ladder, Steamer, Hook and Ladder, Water Tower, Aerial Ladder and Hose Reel) in 1952. Revell signed a marketing agreement with Marlin in 1953. Five of the kit were released with the Revell name and marketing name 'Collectors Kits, Closter N.J.' Revell added the horse parts as they were not originally part of the Marlin issues. The kits made excellent display pieces, but they never caught the imagination of young men like jet aircraft did. The five molds were shipped to Brazil. After run for Kikoler (Revell Brazil's Distributor), they were shipped back to the USA but the molds were lost at sea. This issue is from when Revell still had the marketing agreement, as it says 'Trade Mark Copyright 1953 Marlin Toy Co. Inc' on the box top and 'Collector's Kits, Inc, Closter, N.J.' on the side.
