La Belle 1886 50' Open Platform Truss Rod Wood Coach - HO Scale Wood Craftsman Kit With Interior Details, HO, HO-11

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

This kit includes a sealed bag of aftermarket wooden coach seats and a cast metal toilet and sink. During the golden era of realistic train models, La Belle Woodworking Company created perhaps the very finest scale kits of early American passenger equipment. The kit features die cut hardwood parts (no balsa) such as pre-cut and scribed sides with all windows and doors factory cut, car ends done in the same fashion, carved clerestory roof, green-tinted clear clerestory window material, full underside details, metal details, building instructions and full size plans. I have seen these models built and they look identical to the real prototypes. NOTE: the car sides have been built. Quality of construction is 'excellent' but not absolutely perfect (not mint). There is no other assembly. The kit is complete with all parts and plans. Please read the article on this website about older HO train kits and the modeling revolution they caused in the late 1930s/1940s.

Pyro 1948 Lincoln Continental, 1/25, C502-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

From the mid 1960s, but from older molds. The only larger scale kit of this classic car. Edsel Ford himself sketched the design for the large V-12 equipped convertible with the assistance of Bob Gregory. The cars were incredibly popular. This was likely due to good looks and not the power plant; it made only 125 hp and was always troublesome. Good kit for it's time with detailed engine, removable hood and convertible top, and molded in blue, clear, chrome and with real rubber tires. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

Life-Like Westward Ho Pioneer Wagon (Covered Wagon) - (ex- Miniature Masterpiece / Revell / Adams), 1/48, 09683

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor

Sold   

Excellent builder kit. Very highly detailed model includes wagon, accessories, large display base, two Longhorn Oxen, horse, rider and figure. The kit has never been started. NOTE: missing one set of ox horns and the boy figure. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts and instructions. The box is poor as both short end panels are missing. 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 in 1958 with the original molds. Life-Like acquired these Adams molds but not all Adams molds. This issue is from about 1976 and lists the former MM Chuck Wagon, Western Figures, Wells Fargo Stage coach as well as numerous Pyro and Palmer kits as being currently available.
