Hudson Miniatures 1912 Packard Landaulet- Lil' Old Timers 'Quickie Kit', 1/32, HM6-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

Rare Series Two kit with dressed-up box artwork. When the Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' burst upon the hobby scene in 1951, they started a hobby revolution. Plastic model kits were not new in 1951, but successful mass marketing of plastic kits was new. The sensation swept the country, and Gowland & Revell could not make the kits fast enough. The fact that the public was buying these models shocked the successful hobby establishment. One such manufacture was Hudson Miniatures. In the 1940s, Hudson had established a name in making 1/16 scale 'Old Timer' models of automobiles. These were excellent kits with wood and metal parts, but a high degree of skill was required to carve and finish the wood parts. In the late 1940s, they added some injection molded plastic parts (usually acetate wheels) to the series but did not consider a completely plastic kit. When Hudson saw what was happening with the Highway Pioneers, he began to design his own 1/32 scale line called 'Lil Old Timers', which hit the stores in 1954. An early paper fold-out catalog shows 18 models including some real gems like the 1910 International Harvester Passenger Car, 1911 Brush Delivery Truck and 1906 Columbia Electric Car just to name a few. The line was bought by Revell a short time after it's release, and Revell did reissue some (but not all) of the kits. As you would expect from Hudson, this is a nice kit with excellent moldings and detail for the time. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. For this kit, Hudson engineers had access to the real car owned by Mr. Henry Austin Clark who operated the Long Island Automobile Museum in Southampton, Long Island and the former Carnival of Cars display in Times Square. Built on the Packard model 18, the 1912 Landaulet had a four cylinder motor of 26 horsepower and originally cost $4500 - a princely sum in that day.

Pyro Miquelet Moorish Lock Pistol, 1/1, C227-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

From about 1966. Early hardbox issue. In addition to cars, ships, planes and figures, Pyro added an excellent line of well-known and not-so-well-known life-sized (1/1) scale pistol and rifle models to their line. In each case Pyro gained access to the actual weapon during the kit design, insuring a very accurate model. This one is a 21 inch long copy of the Miquelet used in Spanish Morocco between 1610 and 1875. The lock was made in Spain, while the barrel and the ornamented stock were made by the North African and Arabian craftsmen. Never started.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

The Do-24 went on to see successful service in WWII as recon, supply and ambulance aircraft. A squadron was supplied to Spain, and one Do-24 remained operational until 1970. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Revell Covered Wagon - (ex- Miniature Masterpiece), 1/48, K213-88

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

Rare 1958 issue. Very highly detailed model includes wagon, accessories, base, two Longhorn Oxen, horse, rider and two figures. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including instructions. This kit has an interesting history. 'Miniature Masterpieces' was formed through an alliance of Lou Glasser (Revell) and Steve Adams (Adams Action Models) in 1953. Although the molds were made at Adams and it had the appearance of an independent company, the firm was run by Revell down to the prototypes being made at the Revell plant. Originally there was no evidence of the parent company on the surface. The State Coach of England was the first kit, issued in 1953. More kits of excellent quality followed. Revell completely took over the line in 1954 and in that year and the next, kits were labeled 'Revell' with a 'Miniature Masterpiece' label on the box top also. However, Adams broke the relationship with Revell in the later 1950s and began making kits under the Adams name with the original molds.
