Revell 1913 Mercer Raceabout Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H104

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

1959 Issue from Revell of Great Britain Ltd. By 1959 the Highways Pioneers marketing presentation had been greatly improved - note the box with specific artwork for this car, greatly improved box top side panel decoration and the instructions are now step-by-step and very well illustrated. The kit is molded in yellow plastic. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes 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.

Life-Like 1910 Stanley Steamer, 1/32, C466-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

From ex-Pyro molds. Pyro planned this kit, but never released it under the Pyro label due to the sell-off of all plastic kits to Life-Like. That has made the kit somewhat rare. The box says "Made Under License From Pyro Plastics Corp, Union, New Jersey." Nicely done with detailed engine, removable hood, separately molded suspension and axles, full interior, spoke wheels, lanterns, dual side mount spares and tool box. Molded in gloss dark brown, clear, brass plate and with real rubber tires. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. Other Pyro molds that were introduced under the Life-Like name included the 1912 Hispano-Suiza, 1910 Buick and 1908 Lanchester.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

1970s Life-Like issue from the original 1967 Pyro molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of their kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity.
