Revell Sears Buggy Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H45-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++


1953 early issue molded in green plastic. This is from the issues produced by Gowland & Gowland as it carrier their 'balloon' logo on the side. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and 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.

IM Lockheed F-94C Starfire - Bagged, 1/56, 1

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed


Still factory sealed. Includes color decals and instructions. This kit was initially a puzzle to me. First, the kit is not listed in any of my guides. On first inspection, it appears to be the rare Revell first mold F-94 from the one piece box with no landing gear and one-piece wings. However, it could not be - it has the rivet detail of the 2nd Revell issue- but not the split upper & lower wings and added landing gear. It has come to light that Lincoln, from Hong Kong copied the 2nd edition Revell F-94 and left off the 'details' and changed the base to the typical Lincoln base. Plastic kit production was a sideline for Lincoln, and when production ended, the molds moved to Kader, also in Hong Kong. Kader reissued the entire Lincoln line in the mid 1970s. When Kader discontinued production in the late 1970s, ATP Inc in the USA bought the remaining kits and perhaps some molds. Eventually IM obtained many Kader molds - perhaps from ATP - and this issue was made.

Aurora AT-6 Texan, 1/48, 70-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM


Still in the factory seal. The box is dated 1960 but the kit is later (mid 1960s) due to the '100' price extension and oval sunburst logo with no 'Famous Fighters' in the border. Please note the '100' price extension is a factory-applied round sticker over the old printed price extension. This was a common way of raising suggested retail prices while still using up stocks of boxes. At that time, the box and it's lithographed 'slick' often costs more than the plastic inside.
