Pocher Ferrari Testarossa Spyder (Pocher), 1/8, 192

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$785   

This is the Pocher kit with the Testors/Pocher label. In 1986 Pininfarina created this very special Spider on the basis of the Ferrari Testarossa. By strengthening the chassis, cutting the roof and modifying the trunk the car was given a unique appearance of a very luxury Spider. Very few of this special Testarossa were made. Pocher chose to create this model for it's 25th Anniversary. Although Poacher is no longer in business, they are acknowledged as the finest car model makers ever. This kit features all metal body and body panels that are perfectly factory primed and pre-painted white like the box art. Every detail of the suspension, interior, engine and truck are recreated in this magnificent model. The kit is in 1/8 scale and measures 56 cm (over 22 inches long) when built. The steering works, the doors, hood and trunk open and close, headlights open and retract and much, much more. The body and all body panels are metal - the balance of the kit is metal and injection molded plastic and a number of other materials such as flexible wires for the ignition, clear parts, real rubber tires, etc. The kit has never been started and is complete. Inside, it is like new. The parts that were factory bag sealed are still sealed. The parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete. The painted parts are in perfect condition and well protected with all factory packaging. UNLESS you specify otherwise, this kit will shipped in the original Testors heavy cardboard shipping box. If you wish to have it shipped inside another box, let me know and there will be additional cost for shipping.

Lincoln Douglas DC-3 - Sabena, 1/96, 111

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$55   

Nicely made small scale kit with great box arts. Dates from the mid 1950s to the very early 1960s. Never started. The small parts are still in the internal factory sealed bag, and the larger parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions. Lincoln was based in Hong Kong. Plastic kits were not the primary business, but they established quite a line of them before discontinuing production in the late 1960s/early 1970s. Many molds moved to Kader, also in Hong Kong, who reissued the line. Many molds eventually found their way to the USA either through ATP (who purchased the excess kit stock when Kader sold out) or IM.

Hudson Miniatures 1910 International Harvester Passenger Car, 1/16

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$72   

Very well detailed large 1/16 kit from 1949. Features plastic wheels, grill, headlamps, spotlight, running lights and other accessories and wooden main parts. Although all of Hudson's 1/16 kits have excellent detail, this one has even more detail than usual thanks to Hudson's engineers having access to the actual car owned by Mr. James Melton. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. As a note, few people even knew that International Harvester even made a passenger car. Not many were produced and very, very few are in existence. Jim Melton's car, the car examined by Hudson engineers, was likely given to him as a promotion as he was a popular opera singer and the star of International Harvester's radio show 'Harvest of the Stars'. The car was very solidly built to last and reportedly gave excellent service. Why IH did not pursue production is not known. Hudson Miniatures created a very popular line of automobile kits in a constant 1/16 scale shortly after WWII. The kits sold very well...so well that you could argue that Gowland & Gowland borrowed Hudson's subject matter for their ground-breaking 'Highway Pioneers.' The Hudson Miniatures 'Old Timers' even spawned a line of imitators, with Fador's 'Smallster' being one of the better in quality. Sales did drop on the appearance and popularity of the much smaller (and less accurate) Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' in 1951. When the all-injection molded Gowland kits proved not to be a passing fad, Hudson quickly planned and released his own all-plastic, small-scale competition called 'Lil' Old Timers Quickie Kits.' The kits were of excellent quality, but it was too little too late. Additionally, sales of the excellent wooden kits faltered further in the next few years with the introduction of accurate, 1/24 and 1/32 all-plastic cars in the mid 1950s. This forced Hudson to discontinue the wood kits and the plastic line was sold to Revell and subsequently re-released. Today, these excellent, big 1/16 kits are often the only model available of these early automobiles. In the mid 1960s Aurora thought so highly of Hudson Miniatures that they purchased the wood kit assets and released a very small number of these in all-plastic models.
