Revell 1910 Cadillac Limousine Factory Display - Built Up With Base - Highway Pioneers, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$59   

This is a Revell-factory built display built for hobby shop promotional use around 1954/55. The intention was simple- if hobby shops would purchase and show these attractively built displays, potential buyers would see them and immediately purchase the kit. This probably worked well; but the hitch was that these displays were expensive for the 1950s, so few hobby shops could afford them. There were other difficulties too. Once in public, there was heavy attrition; parts easily broke, and when the new kits came out next year, they were thrown away to make room for more. Which makes condition of this one even more exceptional. The actual model is very neatly built and Revell factory airbrushed. You can always tell the Revell-built models by the airbrushing and the way the parts were masked. The actual car is complete, nothing is broken and there are no repairs. Even the base is in very good condition; however the clear cover is missing and the car could use a cleaning. 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.

Bluejacket Smuggler 1877 Gloucester Schooner - 33 Inch Long Wooden Ship Model - O Scale, 1/48, 1012

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$295   

A superb model that sells new for $340. Of all aspects of New England fishing in the late 19th century, none was more distinctive than the mackerel purse-seine fishery with it's specialized gear, exacting techniques and fast, handsome schoolers built specifically for this seasonal work. Smuggler, with her extreme clipper hull, was one of the most beautiful of them all. This is a wood and metal model of the highest quality. When assembled, it measures 33 inches long and 25.5 inches high. Features a pre-carved basswood hull, laser cut hardwood parts, finely cast Britannia pewter fittings, all materials needed for deckhouses, spars and rigging material as well as three sheets of superb full-size plans. The kit has never been started. All parts are still in the factory sealed internal bags and includes plans (in mint condition) and the large instruction book (which is slightly used, it looks to have been studied). NOTE: unless you specify otherwise, this kit will ship in the original (very sturdy) model box wrapped in brown paper. If you specify, I will be glad to pack it inside a box but extra shipping will apply.

Ray Hawker Typhoon, 1/43

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$26   

Rare kit, probably from the late 1940s but the actual date is not known. Large scale model that is solid wood. Features 'Ray-Ring' fuselage, a novel and useful feature to make fuselage finishing easier. Instead of using template to shape the fuselage, the templates have already been used and at those locations the fuselage is already carved to final shape! You simply carve in between the pre-carved section until they match - a very nice idea. Also includes factory cut wings, fully finished wheels, clear vacuform canopy (known as the 'Ray-Closure') in excellent condition and not yellowed, very high quality printwood, full color insignia, very nice full size plans including building instructions. The kit has never been started and is complete. Ray Aircraft Products Co. was located in West Chester Pennsylvania. They mention this is the '5nd of the RAY SOLID MODELS'. The Hellcat was #2. Little else is known.

$26   

Still factory sealed. 1982 issue. Very close to 1/144 scale. This is Revell's classic 707 modified into the airborne command post. Features optional position landing gear and decals for USA or NATO.

Mach Dzik P52 Polish Navy (U-Class) Submarine, 1/400, 02

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG

$12   

Still factory sealed but the seal has drawn the box top concave. Dzik ("Wild Boar") and her sister Solol ("Falcon" were the first submarines delivered to the Polish Navy once WWII began. By February of 1941 Sokol was patrolling the Bay of Biscay and Dzik followed shortly after delivery on October 11, 1942. Both of these ships achieved significant success in the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas, where they destroyed several enemy ships. Both subs outlasted the war and were returned to England. Dzik was then lent to the Danish Navy in 1946. Her active service ended in 1957 and she was broken up in 1958. Very nicely molded and detailed but certainly not a 'state of the art' Tamiya style kit. Features full hull with propellers and rudder, display stand, color paint guide on the back of the box with rigging diagram and full decals with flags.
