AMT 1910 M-40 Flyabout Thomas Flyer, 1/25, T232

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Sold   

Still factory sealed. Very highly detailed kit with 150 parts. Molded in light gray with brass plated and clear parts and with rubber tires. Features four bucket seats, five spare tires, tool boxes, acetylene tank, fuel tanks, luggage box, fully detailed engine, removable hood, complete chassis detail and dual change drive with oilers, spoked wheels, 36 inch wheels and more. This kit models the famous winner of the 1908 New York to Paris Race. Originally, the Thomas Motor Company was building bicycles in the 1890s as so may other automakers did. Erwin Ross Thomas, the founder, was experimenting with high speed gasoline engines. From 1898 to 1900 they built commercial engines and gasoline powered tricycles. Then Thomas moved to motorcycles, creating the "Auto-Bi", which was the first practical motorcycle commercially built in the USA. By 1902 he was the largest manufacture of motorcycles. Very shortly after this, the first Thomas Car, the "Buffalo Junior" was produced and 100 sold the first year. The Thomas was originally an advanced car and well known for it's high speed. In 1906, E.R. Thomas entered his cars in the Vanderbilt Cup and Glidden Trophy. The Thomas completed the 2000 mile tour without any mechanical adjustments. That year saw further race victories. In 1907 Thomas had several models with a new four cylinder engine; the G70 from that year was known as the fastest production car in the world. At this time, Rolls-Royce made some public statements about the superiority of the 6 cylinder engine. This caused E.R. Thomas to challenge Rolls Royce to a race from NY to Chicago - Rolls Royce, however, backed out. But four European manufacturers took Thomas up on his challenge, and the Paris newspaper Le Matin sponsored the great event for 1908. This race laid a course from Buffalo, NY to San Francisco, then to Alaska down the Yukon across the Bering Strait on ice, then rerouted to Japan due the thaw, to Siberia and then across Europe to Paris. The Thomas entry was a stock Touring car with George Schuster as the driver. After 169 days and 21,000 miles, the Thomas was the winner. Today it is still considered the greatest automobile race ever.

Revell Grumman F9F-8 Cougar - First Issue Pre-'S' 1 Piece Box - (F9F8), 1/52, H203-59

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

Very first release from 1953 in the one-piece box. This kit is one of Revell's first three aircraft kits, all packed in this type of box. Revell soon learned that this box was inadequate for plastic models, so they quickly moved to the two-piece hardbox, a medium weight cardboard box folded to shape and glued together with a litho 'slick'. Although this box grades VG, it is in above average condition for this kit due to the nature of the box. This early kit has no landing gear or rivet detail, as is correct for the first issues. The decals are the correct early version from "The Colortone Co." and the instructions are printed on the back of the box. These kit comes with the unique solid color two piece stand (as shown in the instructions) molded in the same color as the aircraft. This stand was only used for the first three Revell aircraft kits (F9F, Cutlass and F-94) and Revell's first Gift Set with these three aircraft. The model is molded in the correct dark gloss blue with a clear canopy. This kit has never been started. It has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions (on the back of the box)
