Revell 1909 Stanley Steamer - Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H34-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

1960 issue with the greatly improved box art. Molded in light green. This kit has not been started, and has been inventory with all parts present as well as the 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.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG++

Sold   

Still factory sealed. Still the only 1/72 injection molded 737. 1978 issue after Monogram bought Aurora's molds. Monogram only reissued the best and most commercially viable models. The 737 fell into that category but only after Monogram carefully modified the molds for accuracy. The result is an excellent early 737-100. First, Monogram filled in the side windows. Then they added very fine and accurate full panel lines on the entire model and also added flap hinge covers (fairings) to the lower wings. Contains greatly improved, full, excellent United Airlines markings and window decals. Could be converted to Military Transport T-43A, but you must furnish your own decals.

Still factory sealed. The first aircraft to fly across the Atlantic in formation! The S-55 was a unique aircraft with the passenger compartments in the floats and the cockpit in the wing; the two engines are mounted in tandem push/pull above the cockpit. The S-55 proved to be very reliable and airworthy, setting 14 world records for speed, altitude and distance with a payload. Three months before Lindbergh's solo Atlantic flight, and S-55 flew with stops from Italy to Rio and NY City. In 1933 Marshal Balbo led 25 S-55s to Chicago in about 48 hours. He then flew back without incident.
