Life-Like Cutty Sark Clipper Ship - (ex-Pyro), B249-125
Life-Like Cutty Sark Clipper Ship - (ex-Pyro), B249-125
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc,   old
$30

Still factory sealed. From the early 1970s and original Pyro molds. Full hull kit measures almost 10 inches long when assembled. Full hull kit with very good molded detail including wood planking and grain and copper plates below the waterline, pre-molded ratlines, detailed deck, billowing sails and display stand. Molded wood brown and off-white. A photo of the built kit on the instructions serves as a standing rigging diagram. This is one of the 'intermediate' line of Pyro ship kits, which at the time were Pyro called '$1.00 Models'. All were roughly the same size and were a significant increase in detail from the '50 Cent Models'.
Orange Crush-Revell 1915 Ford Model T, 1/32
Orange Crush-Revell 1915 Ford Model T, 1/32
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++,   old
$79

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.

Aurora 1920 Monroe Special Indianapolis 500 Winner - Kit and Built-Up, 1/30, 521-79
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++,   old
$135

Very rare. Includes a boxed kit and a partial built up. The kit is from ex-Best molds. Aurora purchased the Best molds for the Indianapolis 500 Winners and made one issue in 1958. Kit is molded in gloss blue with real rubber tires, spoke wheels and includes a crew of two and some interior detail. NOTE: the kit has been started. Someone assembled the sub-frames to the body and the steering wheel to the dash. However, they used Elmer's white glue, so the parts simply fell off. The remaining glue easily popped off the parts, leaving them with only slight to no wear. NOTE: includes all car parts and instructions but the top section of the brake handle and the decals are both missing. The front axle is missing one short end (that the wheel slides over), which can be replaced with a stock cylindrical part. The partial built up model is missing one rear brake drum and the steering wheel - other than that, it looks to be complete. Quality of assembly and paint is very good, and it is painted the correct green color with a red nose.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG,   old
$125

Rare. From about 1953. Early Gowland-produced set with no part number. Gowland designed and molded these kits as well as providing the box artwork and instructions - Revell did the marketing. Inside, the kit is correct with all cardboard dividers, tires molded in black and the cars molded in red, black, dark blue, yellow and green, correct instructions and the small parts are in the factory wax paper bags. The models have never been started. All kits have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Before the 1950s 'model building' as a hobby did not even make the top 10 list of boys 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 mover in proving that model building as a hobby could have mass appeal, provided that the kits were easy enough to build and finish. They could be built in an hour after dinner and looked like the real car. The 'Highway Pioneers' series helped lead to the production of other subjects in plastic. The effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, 'model building' was the # 1 past time of American boys.
