Pyro 1930 Ford Model A Woody Wagon, 1/32, C306-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+++

Sold   

1960s Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of it's kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity.

Pyro Gouda - Dutch 17th Century Man-O-War, B212-400

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG-

Sold   

Rare Pyro kit from the late 1960s. Large scale - measures about 14 inches long when assembled. Very nicely molded and detailed. Features well over 250 parts, individually molded cannon, cradles and cannon hull hatches, separately molded fife rails with belaying pins, pre-molded rat lines, billowing sails, blocks and two photos for use in rigging the ship. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including instructions. Any kit of a Dutch 17th Century Man-o-War is rare - this may be the only injection molded kit ever made of this famous subject. The Gouda fought in the Anglo-Dutch Wars. She was built about 1636 and was commanded by Jan Egbertsz Ooms. The Gouda and other ships from Witte de With's fleet were lost in a storm in early November 1653. Pyro did not cut molds based on popularity, but usually by the historical significance of the subject. This was not a good injection-molded model business practice, but many collectors and builders are grateful today for these kits.

Airmodel Curtiss XF15C-1 (XF-15C-1) - Bagged, 1/72, 174

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed

Sold   

Still factory bag sealed. Nicely molded with recessed panel lines. Typical basic vac kit. Scratchbuilding some details will be necessary. In the early 1940s turbojets had little thrust advantage over piston engine aircraft and a shorter range. It was no surprise that there were several mixed engine (piston and jet) designed tested and some reached operational status. The Curtiss XF15C-1 was to be a long ranged composite powered fighter. The Pratt and Whitney R-2800-34W drove a four bladed prop and the jet was a Allison Chalmers built version of the DeHavilland/Halford H-1 turbojet. Three prototypes were built and tested. The craft had a speed of 450 mph and a range of 1,250 miles. However, the rapid progress of turbojets made the concept obsolete. Trials continued but the aircraft were eventually scrapped.

Pyro Chevrolet 1957 Bel-Air Two Door Hardtop, 1/32, C294-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Late 1960s Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of it's kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. In the late 1960s the '57 Chevy had passed it's popularity. But Pyro designers in the late 1960s had the forethought to recognize the '57 Chevy for the classic that it was. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. Molded in bright gloss red and clear, with detailed molded chassis with separate front and rear suspension parts, complete interior and more. This model is nicely detailed and the box states that it can be converted to a 'road racing' or slot car. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

Hudson Miniatures 1910 Ford Model T Torpedo Convertible, 1/16

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

Early multi-media kit of wood, metal and plastic dated 1949 on the box. Large 1/16 scale kit measures 8 inches long when built. Very nicely detailed with all the complicated parts cast in yellow, light tan or ivory injection molded plastic. Includes full size plans and instructions. This kit has never been started. The small parts are still factory bag sealed, and all other have been inventoried 100% complete with full-size plans and instructions. Hudson Miniatures created a very successful and popular line of automobile kits in a constant 1/16 scale shortly after WWII. The kits sold very well until the appearance of the much smaller and less scale Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' in 1951. When the all-injection molded Gowland kits proved that they were not a passing fad, Hudson quickly planned and released his own small scale competition for them called 'Lil' Old Timers Quickie Kits'. The kits were of excellent quality, but it was too little too late. Sales of wooden kits faltered in the next few years with the introduction of all-plastic injection molded cars in the mid 1950s. This forced Hudson to discontinue both lines. Today, these excellent kits are often the only large-scale models available of these early automobiles.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold

In some cases, the specific car and owner is on the box. The Bentely Speed Six did more than any other model to promote Bentley's performance and status.

The model includes colored and clear injection molded parts, wire wheels, detailed chassis with separated molded underpan and exhaust and complete interior. Ideal for slot car conversion.
