Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$84   

Rare, early issue from the 1950s. This is a fine example that includes all the possible paperwork. It includes the Frog inspection slip (No. 1 at that). a fold-out Frog catalog (with a blue, white and yellow cover), a Frog 1 July 1958 "Plastic Scale Aircraft, Kits, Etc" Price List from Lines Brothers and a second instruction sheet in various languages.

Even includes the original glue capsule. Decals are in amazing 'excellent+' condition as are the instructions. NOTE: the box displayed better than the 'very good+' ranking but is graded as such because there is a tape tear (1.5" x .5") on the upper long side, marks from tape and a small section of missing litho from the right short side (1" x .75").

Revell 1910 Pierce Arrow Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H48-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$44   

1953 issue, the first year for the 'Series Three' Highway Pioneers. The box is nice and the kit is molded in a stunning, bright red glossy acetate plastic. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes 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.

Advanced Molding Corp Ferrari 342 America Sports Car - (pre-Aurora), 1/32, 13

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$45   

NOTE: builder only, please read carefully. Very rare and for the advanced builder/collector of early plastic models. Advanced Molding issued 7 pioneering plastic car kits in 1954. But in 1955, Aurora purchased the molds then released them (the first in '55) under the Aurora name and artwork. They became famous under the Aurora name but virtually unknown under the original Advanced label because they were issued for year or less. Advanced cleverly advertised all 7 kits on each box - the box top shows the kit inside, and the long side panels show 3 on each side. The 7 were the Cunningham, MG, Jaguar, Alfa Romeo, Ferrari Sportster, Corvette and Ferrari 342 America. This kit is the Ferrari Sportster, is molded in bright red with rubber tires. NOTE: this kit has the body shell assembled to 'professional' quality. Fit is perfect and the seamed are puttied and sanded. There is no other assembly and zero painting. All parts are present. With instructions that have a nice history of the car. Advanced was located at 54 West 21st Street, New York 10, NY. After selling the cars, Advanced remained in the plastic model business with the Trailblazers HO train series in 1955 centered around the famous "General." It was issued as a locomotive and tender, or just the cars as set (passenger, mail combine, baggage, box car, flat car and caboose), or the cars each separately and the rare freight set which included the locomotive and tender, box car, flat car and caboose.

Enterprise Cycle Miniatures Tandem Bicycle, 1/15, B2

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$38   

Rare. Enterprise was a very successful maker of balsa wood free-flight and control line aircraft models dating well back into the 1930s. The Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' got the attention of Enterprise staff. Enterprise maintained their own museum of rare and extraordinary old time bicycles, so it only seemed natural that the first (and only) two plastic kits from the company would represent bikes. This model is of the Tandem, based on an example from 1896 and is very nicely molded and detailed for that time. It includes a display base also. This model and a 'Old High Wheeler' were fine kits issued in 1954 but did not sell well; production was discontinued after a short run. The kit has never been started. All parts are either still sealed in the 'krinkle' bag or have been inventoried 100% complete with the base.

Pyro Ford 1936 Roadster, 1/32, 288-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$36   

Late 1960s Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of it's kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. This model is nicely detailed and the later issues of this same kit state that it can be converted to a 'road racing' or slot car. Features detailed molded chassis underside with separately molded front and rear suspension, complete interior, top boot or top in the 'up' position and rear trunk mounted spare tire. Never started. Inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Jo-Han 1960 Plymouth Station Wagon Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$36   

Rare friction-drive promotional model. This is an one-adult owned model and has never been played with. It has been stored in a box and never seen light or smoke- the plastic is glossy and clean as new. The body is amazing condition for this type of plastic. The factory silver paint on the top and the green interior paint is mint with zero wear. The body has very little warping. Oddly, it is the interior which is warped but that is the easiest part to fix. The clear has the typical aging; however, I have a new Jo-Han 1960 Plymouth windshield that I am including with this promo - it is a straight-forward replacement. The whitewalls are exceptional, and there is no wear at all on the tires. Strangely, there is a zone of copper spraypaint on the center of the underside. That is the only unusual thing. She is certainly not perfect, with the new windshield installed she will be about as nice as you can get for an all-original, rare promo.

SMP 1959 Imperial Convertible Friction Drive Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$29   

Original dealer promotional model that is 100% complete. This is a one-owner model that has always been adult owned. The tires are factory new - it has never been played with and never exposed to smoke. It has the metal chassis factory-painted black and stamped "S.M.P. Mt Clemons Mich"; the friction motor still works. The body is good but has some warping as shown. Body color is glossy and pretty with some foxing. The front and rear bumpers are stamped metal. Some of the fine trim (door handles etc) has been painted to 'professional' quality; it is good enough to pass for factory paint.

The 1930s Packards are seen as the high point of the brand.
