Pyro Dutch Staten Jacht - Yacht, B261

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Pyro is long out of the plastic model business but is famous today for the esoteric collection of kits they produced. The seemed to care little about popularity but designed kits based on historical significance or local interest. The quality of the kits is generally high. This model is no exception. During the 17th century, the Dutch built light, swift and beautifully finished yachts for pleasure and affairs of state. Charles II during his exile in Holland developed a fondness for Dutch yachts, and sailed home in a beautifully appointed Jacht that the Prince of Orange loaned to him. Later Charles built a flotilla of them and arranged races. Nicely detailed kit with full deck details and fitting, molded ratlines and billowing sails. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. The scale is unknown, but the kit is about 8 inches long.

Italaerei TWO Waco CG-4 Hadrian Assault Glider - USAAF Normandie / USAAF Sicily / RAF, 1/72, 118

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

SALE!! Includes two models in one box. Ideal builder kits only (not collectible), please read carefully for the condition. NOTE: these models have 'professional' quality subassembly as follows: Kit #1, both wing halves; benches and doors (in the closed position) to fuselage halves; cockpit tubs assembled (but not installed in the fuselage) and hinges for control surfaces to the wings. Kit #2: exactly has Kit #1 plus elevator hinges installed and skies assembled to fuselage halves. The aircraft have been inventoried complete and include decals and instructions, but NOTE: the display stand are missing. Kit Description: same as the Testors kit as Italeri made the molds. Very nicely detailed with a very fine fabric texture, full cockpit, complete interior including troop benches, wheels and skids and two paratroopers. Has markings for all three aircraft. The Waco CG-4 was designed and initially built by Waco Aircraft Company of Troy, OH. It first saw action in Sicily and the operation was termed a disaster. This likely had more to do with planning than the actual glider. Missions in Europe, including D-Day, went much better. The glider was even deployed to Burma. It could carry up to 13 troops, or a jeep and four men, or a 75mm Field Gun.

Hudson Miniatures 1906 Columbia Electric Old Timers, 1/16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Dated 1949 and very well detailed for that time. Big scale kit features numerous die-cut and machined-to-shape wooden parts, beautiful plastic wheels, leaf spring assemblies and lanterns and a number of metal parts, accessories and die-cut cardstock. The kit has never been started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed bag and all other parts have been inventoried present. Includes large, excellent, detailed plans with instructions. The Columbia Electric was manufactured by the Electric Vehicle Co. of Hartford, Conn. It had a 1.5 HP motor with chain drive and three speeds. It cost $1350 in 1906 and tipped the scales at 1660 pounds. We think of electric cars as 'new' today but they are anything but. There were many advantages (and manufacturers) of these cars. There were no fuel lines and radiators to freeze in the winter and no overheating in the summer. They used no smelly gasoline and produced no odor when operated. The complete lack of noise made them popular with the ladies and the range was between 40 and 50 miles on a charge - not bad at all considering you could not very far anyway (on regular business or errands) in 1906. 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.

They had full instrumentation, power operated flaps and brakes, a powered device for jettisoning the landing gear upon touchdown. The Horsa MkI carrier troops while the MkII carried vehicles which loaded through the swing nose and unloaded from an explosively-released rear fuselage after landing. Gliders carried in 20% of the reinforcements and supplies for D-Day, and most were Horsas. They also saw action against the German Heavy Water (Atomic Bomb) plants in Norway and targets in Sicily, Arnhem and the Rhine.
