Entex 1908 Voison Farman - Early Birds Series (ex-Renwal / ex-Taimei), 1/72, 8520A

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$42   

Very well detailed kit from the original Taimei molds. Taimei was the first to use the Aeroskin type process that was widely used by Renwal. Actually, the Renwal molds for the Voisen, Bleriot XI and Antoinette came from Taimei. The original internal frame structure and details of the aircraft is built from injection molded plastic. When complete, it is covered with a very strong fabric which is included. The result is a very realistic aircraft. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

Display base and scale figures are included. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: the box has serious crushing damage and a closed edge split at the upper right as shown and a clear taped split corner there as well.

Rare 1955 issue. Highly detailed and well molded model includes wagon, accessories, base, four mules and two figures. There is no assembly but NOTE: the canvas cover is neatly painted white. There is no other painting. Inventoried and NOTE: missing (1) seat spring. Includes all other parts and instructions. '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.

Still factory sealed. This rare kit was not sealed outside, but Revell placed the contents in the lower box tray, then ran it through the sealing machine. The box top could then be removed by potential buyers so they could see the kit before the purchase. The seal is split and somewhat tattered, but it has never been removed. Very rare and the most difficult kit to find in the American Firefighters series. This is the first Revell issue, and the box and artwork by M Jovine are both dated 1954. This is a large 1/48 scale model featuring three highly detailed horses, hitch, carriage with frame detail, rubber hose, rope and metal chain, along with four firefighters and a Dalmatian dog. Marlin first cut the molds in 1952 and issued the six original American Firefighters (Chemical and Ladder, Steamer, Hook and Ladder, Water Tower, Aerial Ladder and Hose Reel) in 1952. Revell signed a marketing agreement with Marlin in 1953. Five of the kit were released with the Revell name and marketing name 'Collectors Kits, Closter N.J.' Revell added the horse parts as they were not originally part of the Marlin issues. The kits made excellent display pieces, but they never caught the imagination of young men like jet aircraft did. The five molds were shipped to Brazil. After run for Kikoler (Revell Brazil's Distributor), they were shipped back to the USA but the molds were lost at sea. This issue is from when Revell still had the marketing agreement, as it says 'Trade Mark Copyright 1954 Marlin Toy Co. Inc' on the box top and 'Collector's Kits, Inc, Closter, N.J.' on the side.

Revell Medicine Wagon - Miniature Masterpiece, 1/48, H521-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$85   

Rare 1955 issue and a highly detailed model for that time. Features medicine wagon with detailed suspension and open rear platform, colorful decals for Doctor Brown's Snake Oil, two horses, Dr. Brown, one entertainer, Indian, local man and a local woman with her young boy and girl. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please note that the box displays much better than the 'good++' rating; it is graded as such because of the very light staining restricted to the very top of the box top. There is similar light staining to the adjacent long side. '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.

In the 'Golden Age of Aviation Modeling' (1930s and '40s), most modelers built the flying 'stick and tissue' type kits with rubber, CO2 or gas power. But there were a small but measurable percent that built solid aircraft display models of great detail. This required great skill worthy of the shipbuilders of old, especially considering the limited technology. Many manufacturer's kits consisted of blocks of wood and a plan - the famous (or infamous) 'Make Wood Look Like Plane' kits. A few, like Dyna-Model Products Company, attempted to provide true-scale static models with a high level of detail. Today Dyna-Models are legendary and sought after collectibles. When you first open the kit, you see a black and white cardstock display with all the needed jigs and templates for assembly. Underneath, the fuselage is rough carved to ~95% of final shape (not just profile cut) and all other parts are either profile (2D) or die cut. Includes color decals, full size high-quality plans and the crowning jewel, a box of finished metal castings for super detailing your aircraft. Never started and inventoried complete.
