Premier 1910 Ford Model T Type, 1/32, 600-49

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

1950s issue with excellent box art. The kit inside is a near-copy of the Highway Pioneers Model T. Premier intended to capitalize on the Gowland/Revell 1/32 classic car popularity; how well they did is unknown. The box art is definitely better than it's rival, but the kit is more basic. Molded in black with a metal wire frame windshield. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including instructions. Judging from the list of available kits on the long side panels of the box, Premier either copied Gowland & Gowland/Revell's kits or received many of the kit parts from them.

Revell 1910 Ford Model T Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

1952 first issue in the 'Series One' yellow box. This early issue has the Gowland & Gowland 'balloon' logo on the long sides and no price extension on the part number. These issues feature the same 5 car artwork on every box; the only way to identify the contents was an ink-stamped name on the box ends. Molded in black plastic. This kit has never been started. All parts are still in the factory sealed bag. Includes instructions. These kits have a fascinating history. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream and never made the top 10 list of boys activities. Spurred on by the nation-wide aviation craze in the 1920s, many became modelers and built flying or static wooden models of airplanes, ships, trains, automotive and other subjects. Basic kits existed, but many of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s when the Gowland & Gowland/Revell Highway Pioneers became the sales sensation of the year. Demand was so great that the factories could not keep up and almost overnight 'model building' was mainstream. The phenomenon of the 'Highway Pioneers' 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 fit the bill: they could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real cars. The success of the Highway Pioneers lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the late 1950s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys...and many adult males too!

Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.
