Pyro Chesapeake Bay Skipjack Oyster Boat 'Carrie Price', 1/60, C269-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

From the very early 1960s. An excellent kit for that time. Features full hull, optional position keel, optional position cabin and deck hatch if you wish to super-detail the insides, full deck fittings, two detailed small boats, railings and life rings, furled sails (as shown on box art) and an excellent un-retouched photograph of the finished model that serves as a rigging diagram. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. The skipjack 'Carrie Price' is an exact replica of a typical small sailing vessel used along the Chesapeake Bay area to dredge for oysters. The center keel stabilizer could be pulled up for working in very shallow water. Until 1942 sail was the only power permitted for oyster dredging; after 1942 the state passed a law allowing power boats to be used. This lead to almost all the skipjacks being converted to power and having the main mast cut down. Although it's days are past, many yachtsmen restore and sail this beautiful small craft today. Pyro is long out of the plastic model business but is famous today for the esoteric collection of kits they produced. The seemed to care little about popularity but designed kits based on historical significance or local interest. The quality of the kits is generally high. Please the read the articles about Pyro Kit History and Pyro's founder, who was a pioneer in modern injection molding. Both are located on this website.

Revell 1908 Buick '10' Rumble Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H40

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

1952 early issue molded in bright red plastic. This is from the issues produced by Gowland & Gowland as it carries their 'balloon' logo on the side. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Before the 1950s 'model building' never made the top 10 list of boy's activities. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream. Shortly after the turn of the century, many dedicated modelers built flying or static airplanes, ship, train, automotive or other subjects. Basic kits existed, but the majority of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s. The phenomenon of the Revell/Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' car kits was a significant force in proving that model building as a hobby could have mass appeal, provided that the kits were easy enough to build and finish. These 1/32 scale vehicles could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real car. The Highway Pioneers series lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys.

Revell Chuck Wagon with Three Figures and Four Animals - Miniature Masterpieces, 1/48, H507-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. The instructions are present and excellent. 'Miniature Masterpieces' was formed through an alliance of Lou Glasser (Revell) and Steve Adams (Adams Action Models) in 1953. Although the molds were made at Adams and it had the appearance of an independent company, the firm was run by Revell down to the prototypes being made at the Revell plant. Originally there was no evidence of the parent company on the surface. The State Coach of England was the first kit - without figures and horses, issued in 1953. More kits of excellent quality followed. Revell completely took over the line in 1954 and in that year and the next, kits were labeled 'Revell' with a 'Miniature Masterpiece' label on the box top also. 1954 advertisements from Revell list the complete line as the H506 State Coach of England, H510 Ranch Wagon, H503 Covered Wagon, H502 Marquis de Lafayette Carriage, H504 Roman Racing Chariot, H501 Wells Fargo Stage Coach, H509 Western Figures and H507 Chuck Wagon.

Hawk 1902 Rambler Model C Runabout - Highway Classics, 1/24, 634-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Rare hardbox kit from 1964. Hawk did not issue many automobile kits, but when they did they chose interesting subjects. Molded in 1/24 scale and molded in gloss dark green plastic with black wheels. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including instructions. This is a very early car with an interesting history. The 1902 Rambler was the first car offered for sale by the Thomas B. Jeffery Company. This later became Nash Motors, which was then later purchased to become part of American Motors. The Model C had a one cylinder 8 HP engine and could speed along at 25 mph. Originally it had wire wheels, but these proved too fragile for the state of roads in the very early 1900s - the company soon changed these to wooden spoke wheels, which are represented on this model. The car had tiller steering and brakes on the rear wheel only. And this kit has a very interesting history also! The molds were originally cut by Kaysun in Japan @ 1954. The kits were a huge advance over the 'Highway Miniatures' and if put side to side put the Revell offerings to shame. I do not know of other kits from Kaysun beyond the two cars. Later in the 1950s Strombecker purchased these molds and issued them in very colorful boxes. However, Strombecker discontinued all plastic kit production in the late 1950s. In 1964 Hawk somehow located these molds. Always with an eye to quality, the Mates brothers knew these were perfect kits for their expanding line of models. The called the Rambler and Hupmobile 'Highway Classics' and issued them in full color boxes that sported photos of the actual built models. There were at least three issues; one at 50 cents, one at 60 cents and one with a special case. However good the kit, the subject matter simply did not catch on and eventually the kits were withdrawn from the line. Polks Hobby Modelcraft found and purchased the molds in 1982 but did not issue the kits. In 1988 Mandrill Manufacturing purchased the Strombecker molds and it is possible these two Kaysun kits is among them.
