Hudson Miniatures 1911 Buick Model 14 Bug, 1/16

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$69   

Dated 1949 on the box. Large 1/16 scale kit measures almost 8 inches long when built. Very nicely detailed with numerous die-cut, saw cut and machined wood parts, beautiful plastic wheels, grill, headlights, lanterns and steering wheel, metal parts and stock and die-cut cardstock. The Hudson Miniatures engineers had access to the actual car- and did a wonderful job. The car was owned by Mr. H. Austin Clark and was in the Long Island Museum at Southampton, Long Island, New York. Includes full size plans, many detailed sub-assembly drawings, photos of the built model from all angles, history, painting guide and instructions. This kit has never been started. The small parts are still factory bag sealed, and all other have been inventoried complete with all paperwork. The Buick Model 14, popularly known as the 'Bug' was produced from 1910 to 1911. It was in direct competition to cars like the Metz, Brush, Holsman and other high-wheelers. It's 2 cylinder, horizontally opposed 'L' head engine was rated at 14 hp and could hit a top speed of 30 mph. At $550, the Model 14 was priced well and sold well. 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.

Pyro 1914 Mercer Raceabout, 1/32, C452-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$39   

1967 Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of their kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. In some cases, the specific car and owner is on the box. This car is an exact reproduction of the car owned by Ralph T. Buckley, owner of the Antique Auto Shop of New Jersey. This shop specialized in rebuilding Mercer automobiles to factory new condition. The car was part of the Gene Zimmerman display of over 150 such cars in Holiday West PA. The model includes rubber tires, brass plated parts, colored injection molded parts and clear parts. Features detailed chassis, complete motor and interior and a removable hood or 'bonnet.' Molded in deep red, brass plating, clear and with rubber tires. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

Best 1935 Gilmore Special Indianapolis 500 Winner, 1/30, 535-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$145   

Very rare kit for the advanced collector. In the early 1950s Best Hobby Kits (Best Plastic Corporation of Brooklyn, NY) entered the infant USA plastic model kit market with a series of Indianapolis 500 winners. Six kits were issued - the 1920 Monroe Special, 1922 Murphy Special, 1931 Miller Special, 1935 Gilmore Special, 1940 Maserati Racer and 1953 Fuel Injection Special. The kits were priced correctly and featured 'Super Detailed' parts (for the time). It is unknown why the line failed to sell - it may have been distribution. Best was certainly not a large player in the business. The kit features real rubber Firestone racing tires, decals and some interior detail. The kit has not been started. All parts are still in the original 'krinkle' bag. Complete with decals and instructions.
