Revell 1903 Cadillac Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H35-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$44   

1960 issue hardbox with full artwork; Highway Pioneers prior to this year simply had generic artwork and an ink stamped name on the box ends was the only way to identify the contents. This kit has never been started. All parts are still sealed in the factory bag. Includes instructions. The box would rate much higher than 'very good++' but there is age foxing on some of the box side panels. These kits have a fascinating history. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream and never made the top 10 list of boys activities. Spurred on by the nation-wide aviation craze in the 1920s, many became modelers and built flying or static wooden models of airplanes, ships, trains, automotive and other subjects. Basic kits existed, but many of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s when the Gowland & Gowland/Revell Highway Pioneers became the sales sensation of the year. Demand was so great that the factories could not keep up and almost overnight 'model building' was mainstream. The phenomenon of the 'Highway Pioneers' 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 fit the bill: they could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real cars. The success of the Highway Pioneers lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the late 1950s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys...and many adult males too!

The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. Horsas were perhaps the most advanced gliders built during WWII. They had full instrumentation, power operated flaps and brakes, a powered device for jettisoning the landing gear upon touchdown. The Horsa MkI carrier troops while the MkII carried vehicles which loaded through the swing nose and unloaded from an explosively-released rear fuselage after landing. Gliders carried in 20% of the reinforcements and supplies for D-Day, and most were Horsas. They also saw action against the German Heavy Water (Atomic Bomb) plants in Norway and targets in Sicily, Arnhem and the Rhine.

Rare. From the 1930s through the 1950s Strombecker produced the world's finest highly prefabricated hardwood model kits. The B-29 is one of Strombecker's flagship models. Features completely carved to final shape fuselage, wings with airfoil, four engine nacelles, tail feathers, turrets, gun sighting blisters, wing flaps and more, four plastic propellers, tricycle landing gear with all gear doors, weighted nose, a very large, full color extensive decal sheet and sealed envelopes of glue & wood filler. Includes the excellent, large format detailed instructions and even the detailed B-29 booklet. Never started. Inventoried and NOTE: missing one part, nose weight. Otherwise includes all other parts and paperwork. The decals were once stuck to the instructions so there are a few small areas where instruction paper is still stuck to the decals. I would grade the decals as 'good.'
