AMT 1952 Studebaker Commander Coupe Key-Wind Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit

$42   

Original dealer promotional model. AMT went to a good deal of effort on this model. It features a all-metal chassis with a keywind motor, metal axles and gear, metal front bumper & metal rear bumper and clear in all 9 windows. Plastic color is a stunning midnight blue that still has excellent gloss. The body is very good and only has slight warping compared to most. Clear is very nice but can use cleaning. The tires are like new - if it was played with, it was not for long. No parts are missing and it is original except that some of the fine trim (door handles, etc) has been very neatly adult painted. The quality is good enough to pass for factory paint.

Revell 1915 Fiat Tourer - Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H55-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$42   

1953 early issue molded in red acetate plastic. This kit has never been started. All parts are still sealed in the factory 'crinkle' bag with instructions. This is from the issues produced with Gowland & Gowland as it carrier their 'balloon' logo on the side. 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.

Monogram F-86D Sabre Dog Pro Modeler - 97th Sq or 498th FIS USAF, 1/48, 85-5960

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$46   

Still factory sealed. Around 1949 the USAF assigned a high priority to all weather fighter design and deployment. Most manufacturers built traditional two seat machines, such as the F-94. North American, however took a new approach and created one of the first true "One-Man Interceptors". Keeping the wings and landing gear from the proven F-86 Day Fighter, they made a longer and deeper fuselage with a large radome and J47 engine. Guns were replaced with 24 2.75" folding fin rockets. Although more than a ton heavier than the F-86, the Dog was the fastest aircraft of it's day and set several world records. 2,504 were built and formed the backbone of America's air defense system in the 1950s. Markings for 498th FIS and 97th FIS "Dennis the Menace". Very highly detailed. Features all recessed panel lines, detailed cockpit, detailed wheel wells, optional position leading edge slats and wing flaps, drop tanks, optional position speed brakes, canopy and rocket tray and a well detailed tow tractor.
