Very rare. This is an early Japanese export kit from TMY in Tokyo, probably dating right around 1960. It was clearly intended for control line operation.

The kit has never been started. The internal condition is exceptional; many parts are still attached to the orange factory display board with string; even more are still wrapped with the factory green tape.

Minicraft 1804 Trevithick The World's First Steam Locomotive, 1/38, 11102

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$65   

From ex-Entex molds. The world's first locomotive was the 1804 Trevithick. On February 13 of that year, Richard Trevithick's high pressure steam locomotive pulled five wagons carrying 10 tons of iron and 70 men on the Penydaren Tramroad from Methyr to Abercynon, Wales. The nine miles was covered in four hours and five minutes but much time was lost cutting down several trees and removing some large rocks. At times they reached the unheard of speed of five miles per hour! The performance won a 500 Pound wager for the train's owner, Mr. Samuel Homfrey and proved for once and for all that smooth steel wheels could obtain traction on a smooth iron rail. Until this day, conventional wisdom insisted that only geared wheels running on geared track would be able to pull any load up the slightest grade. The model is from 1996 but the molds pre-date that. Older but very nice kit that is well detail and molded in wood brown, medium gray and black. Includes display stand. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions.
