Hudson Miniatures 1909 Stanley Steamer - Old Timers, 1/16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$78   

Very well detailed large 1/16 kit from 1949. Features plastic wheels, grill, steering wheel, lights and other accessories and wooden main parts. 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. This kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts, plans and instructions present. 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.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

$28

Monogram B-26 Invader - Four Star Issue, 1/67, PA6-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$65

This is the third issue of this kit since it has 'PA6-98' and 'The Name For Quality Hobby Kits' in the box top logo (the second issue has 'Four Star Plastikit' in the logo). The actual release for this kit is probably between 1961 and 1966. Although created to 'box scale' (1/67 in this case), this model was very popular and remained a good seller well into the 1970s. Molded in the correct gloss silver and clear. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Airfix DH Comet 4B - Dan-Air Skyking Series, 1/144, 03170-7

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$42   

Very nicely detailed and molded kit from 1980. Features clear windows, full landing gear and passenger boarding stairs. Includes colorful Dan-Air London decals. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The initial Comet Is were in operation long before the 707, which gave the British an incredible post-war lead in the expanding civil aviation market. Just as the Comet was flying high and orders were pouring in from around the world, Comets began to mysteriously fall out of the sky. Everything from lighting to terrorist bombs were blamed. For months the root cause went undiscovered. Then, in a landmark investigation that is considered the first modern post-crash autopsy, it was discovered that the stresses around a small ADF window on the top of the fuselage were causing metal fatigue failure when the fuselage was pressurized. To confirm this, a Comet I was placed in a water tank and subjected to pressurization stresses. After some time, a dramatic failure occurred. Then parts of a crashed Comet were pulled from underwater proving once and for all that this was the root cause.
