Hudson Miniatures 1909 Stanley Steamer Old Timers, 1/16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$64   

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. The small parts are still factory bag sealed and all other parts have 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.

Revell Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker - 'Fun To Whip-Fly' Issue, 1/139, H287-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$75   

Rare hardbox issue from 1961. This kit has the 'Fun to Whip-Fly!' logo in the upper left of the box top and there is an advertisement for 6 of the Whip-Fly series on one long side. However, there never was a Whip-Fly KC-135 - just a box promoting Whip-Fly with a regular KC-135 kit in the box. Inside, the kit has never been started. All parts, decals and instructions are still in the factory sealed bag. This kit also has the old style Revell clear 'Globe' base, which is unusual at this late of a date.
