The Christie was the backbone of the American fire-fighting force prior to World War 1 - she was in service in just about every major city. Walter Christie, the designer, was a noted race car driver and the father of front wheel drive technology. This fire engine is actually a development of his turn of the century horse drawn steam pumpers. This model was developed from a fully restored Christie redone by Community Fire company No.1 of Wayne, NJ. This is a highly detailed model which is 1/12 scale and is over 19 inches long when assembled. Features display stand, moldings in red, black, grey and clear, brass and nickel plated parts, decals for all stripes and letting, over 330 parts, decals and full instructions.

In 1959 Revell produced this incredibly detailed 'educational' kit of a standard Nuclear Plant in cooperation with Westinghouse. The kit was never reissued.

The parts were molded in five colors to minimize painting.

Fresh from a long-closed down hobby shop. Very rare kit from 1956; the molds were altered to make the class seaplane tender, which made any reissue impossible. The box has wonderful color and gloss, four solid corners, no creases, no fading, rips or tears, no stains, no price tag or tag marks and no tape or tape marks - this box even escaped the factory tape sealing machine! There is very light general wear and moderate wear to the lower right short side for 1" by 1/16". The prototype Norton Sound was originally a seaplane tender and was converted to an ocean-going laboratory for development and testing of guided missiles and rockets. This ship was key in the Navy's move into the guided missile age. The model features working cranes, operating launching platform for the Viking missile, Terrier with launcher, Jeeps and Lark missile. The kit has never been started. Inside, it is exactly as it left the factory. The small parts and decals are still factory sealed in the Revell clear bag. The larger parts were never sealed and are inventoried complete. Includes flag sheet and instructions. Instructions are in 'near mint' condition with the typical age yellowing as the only flaw. Decals are still factory sealed and would grade the same as the instructions.

Unique model includes 'Fail Safe' mechanism designed by Carl Brack so the ship can be flown on 52 foot lines, even in the wind. Carl Golberg states on the box, "Hard to believe, but true, as proven by my own tests." Profile design features die-cut plywood and balsa parts, superb factory finished wing (with full airfoil), factory cut-to-shape blocks, completely formed steel landing gear struts and rubber wheels, hinge material, nylon engine mount, complete hardware packet (still sealed), decals, full building instructions, flying instructions and more. Never started. Inventoried and NOTE: missing two parts, die cut wing fences (easily made, can be seen on box art on the outboard leading wing edge). Otherwise inventoried with all other parts, decals and instructions present. The hardware set is still factory sealed. Carl Goldberg was a gifted designer of model aircraft, and his career spanned the evolution of flying models. His designs and number of titles won in competition at the Nationals is legendary. His first competition was the 1928 Nationals, where he received honorable mention. By 1934 he won the indoor Nats and in 1935 he opened a Hobby Shop, among the first in the nation (the first one was probably opened by Cleveland Models Ed Packard). Awards came quickly. He wrote articles for Model Airplane News, and was Comet's top designer from 1939 till 1945. After Comet, he worked with Mike Schlesinger and Sid Axelrod on what eventually became Top-Flite Models. In 1955 he founded Carl Goldberg Models and released a still-popular line of scale, rubber, gas, glider and RC models. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

Well detailed, large 1/16 scale kit from 1949. Features plastic wheels, grill, steering wheel, lights and other accessories, wooden and metal main parts and some die-cut cardstock parts as well. Although all of Hudson's 1/16 kits have excellent detail, this one has even more detail than usual thanks to Hudson's engineers having access to the actual car. The instructions even warn that this kit will take more time than usual due to the 'tedious detail.' This kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts, plans and instructions. Hudson Miniatures created a very popular line of automobile kits in a constant 1/16 scale shortly after WWII. The kits sold very well...so well that you could argue that Gowland & Gowland borrowed Hudson's subject matter for their ground-breaking 'Highway Pioneers.' The Hudson Miniatures 'Old Timers' even spawned a line of imitators, with Fador's 'Smallster' being one of the better in quality. Sales did drop on the appearance and popularity of the much smaller (and less accurate) Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' in 1951. When the all-injection molded Gowland kits proved not to be a passing fad, Hudson quickly planned and released his own all-plastic, small-scale competition called 'Lil' Old Timers Quickie Kits.' The kits were of excellent quality, but it was too little too late. Additionally, sales of the excellent wooden kits faltered further in the next few years with the introduction of accurate, 1/24 and 1/32 all-plastic cars in the mid 1950s. This forced Hudson to discontinue the wood kits and the plastic line was sold to Revell and subsequently re-released. Today, these excellent, big 1/16 kits are often the only model available of these early automobiles. In the mid 1960s Aurora thought so highly of Hudson Miniatures that they purchased the wood kit assets and released a very small number of these in all-plastic models.
Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: VG
Wood kit that is probably imported from Hong Kong or similar in the late 1980s or early 1990s. Large - measures 15 inches long when assembled. All parts are hardwood and cut to shape; the spoke wheels are factory assembled while you built all the rest. Although it is a nice kit (the plans show the completed model), I would describe it as 'semi-scale.' The kit has never been started. The small parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags; the parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete and includes illustrated instructions.
