Orange Crush-Revell 1910 Studebaker Cupe Electro (Electric Coupe), 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$69   

Very rare kit with a fascinating history. Around 1958/59, Orange Crush of Mexico offered a promotion. They offered free, colorful, plastic model cars if you collected correctly-marked Orange Crush bottle caps. The models are 1/32 scale Revell Highway Pioneer series - although there is no mention of Revell or Lodela anywhere on the box. Orange Crush had the boxes and even the instructions specially made for them with no mention of a manufacture. They were never given numbers. The boxes were very thin and fragile cardboard. This has contributed to wear and you must be very cautious with them. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bag and the instructions are sealed in the bag as well. You could redeem your caps two ways - at the Orange Crush truck and at a Modelandia Hobby House. The box sides show the 18 cars in the series. Orange Crush also released two full-color booklets and a complete paint set for the cars. A colorful cardboard box held 7 colors of paint in glass bottles, complete with 'Orange Crush' screw-on caps! The entire promotion was done in coordination with Modelandia Hobby House which had up to 19 stores. Modelandia's name appears on each of the boxes and the paint as well. Robina S.A. was the bottler or distributor of Orange Crush in Mexico at that time. The box side lists the other 18 kits with small color pictures of each and shows three sizes of OC - Family Size (Familiar), Grand (Grande) and Normal. You could also obtain models with Titan bottle caps. Titan was also bottled by Robina and came in large (Titan) and smaller (Titancito) sizes and apparently more than one flavor. We do not know how Orange Crush had access to the plastic kits or who sealed the internal bags with the Crush instructions inside them. We can assume that it may have been Lodela, since they would have had access to the Revell molds. It is not know for how long the promotion lasted, but Orange Crush was one of the most dominant soft drinks in Mexico at that time. Here is one clue: some boxes claim that Modelandia had 13 locations; other boxes, which obviously came later on, claim 19 locations. This may indicate that this promotion went on for a significant amount of time.

Hawk T-6 Texan Air Force Trainer, 1/72, 610-60

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

$24   

1960s softbox issue with Tom Morgan artwork. Never started. 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions.

Aurora Curtiss Hawk P-6E Sealed, 1/43, 116-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$110   

Still factory sealed. The kit is dated 1958, but this is obviously a later issue as the Aurora logo does not say 'Famous Fighters' in the border and has no sunburst - due to the 130 price extension, it is most likely from 1961 or '62.

LS Type 1 Medium Tank - Motorized Forward and Reverse and with Firing Gun, 1/50, 3

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM++

$125   

Very rare. Early L/S armor kit in 1/50 scale. Note the early 'L.S. Laboratory' logo on the high gloss box. Excellent and highly collectible artwork. This model is motorized through a gearbox and rear mounted switch. Bogies wheels drive the tank forward or reverse. The batteries are located in the tank hull. Please note that although LS included the gearbox and all required hardware, the motor was not furnished. Very nicely detailed model with 83 parts molded in green with flexible black treads. The gun turret rotates, the gun elevates and fires a projectile up to 10 meters. The kit has never been started. Inside all items are still in the factory sealed bags with the correct LS headers.

$89   

Very rare kit with a fascinating history. This is the early issue with reversed box art and when Modelandia had 13 stores (see below). Around 1958/59, Orange Crush of Mexico offered a promotion.

Berkeley Cavalier-Sixty - For R/C or Free Flight

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+++

$145   

Rare 1930s free flight model for 1/7 to 1/6 HP engines. Large 60 inch wingspan. This model came from the estate of a very active and particular early aircraft kit collector. It is like factory-new inside and has not been started. Complete with all parts, plans and decals (if originally included). Designed for 'Sniffing Thermals', the honored pastime of a generation of model enthusiasts. Flying model aircraft predated powered flight; however, balsa wood and printwood were not introduced until the early 1930s and the hobby took off, as well as the hunt for thermals. Gas flight began in the early 1930s, and early gas powered models, all powered by Brown engines, took home so many awards that they were forever separated in competition from rubber powered models. Design of gas models was tricky since RC (radio control) models could not yet be applied to the mass market; so a gas model had to not only fly and climb under power, but then glide sufficiently - all without any operator inputs once the airplane took off.
