Marlin Chemical and Ladder - American Firefighters, 1/48, 101 FC

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++


Very rare. In 1952 Marlin Toy Company of New York City, New York entered the plastic model business. The Revell 'Highway Pioneers' were making a huge impact on the hobby industry and the timing seemed perfect. Marlin first cut the molds in 1952 and issued the six original American Firefighters -Chemical and Ladder, Steamer, Hook and Ladder, Water Tower, Aerial Ladder and Hose Reel. The boxes were identical as a cost saving measure - similar to the Revell Highway Pioneers. Revell signed a marketing agreement with Marlin in 1953. Five of the kit were released with the Revell name and marketing name 'Collectors Kits, Closter N.J.' Revell added the horse parts as they were not originally part of the Marlin issues. The kits made excellent display pieces, but they never caught the imagination of young men like jet aircraft did. The five molds were shipped to Brazil. After a run for Kikoler (Revell Brazil's Distributor), they were shipped back to the USA but the molds were lost at sea. This is an original Marlin kit and contains the Chemical and Ladder. It is molded in dark red and yellow with the small parts still sealed in the factory wax bag. The non-sealed parts have been inventoried complete including rope, metal axles and instructions in excellent condition.

Air Lines North American B-25C Mitchell - RAF, 1/72, 12900

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+


High quality Frog kit - no rivets, just fine panel lines for a realistic model. Features separately molded rudder, elevator and ailerons, pilot and gunner figure and detailed engines with rotating propellers. This kit has never been started. It is still in the internally sealed factory bag with decals and instructions. This box has some of my favorite Jo Kotula boxart. Kotula originally did 1930s covers for the magazine 'Model Airplane News' and later the Aurora box art of the late 1950s. Air Lines kits are all Frog molds that the Lines Brothers imported to the USA between 1964-1966. The kits, decals and instructions were made in England, then imported to the USA where Testors created the boxes with the colorful trading cards on the back. There are one or two trading cards on each box which show the boxart but not the advertising/logo.

The kit features operating 'Unistick' steering, working bubble top, opening hood, detailed engine, deep dish chrome plated wheels and highly detailed interior. The kit is molded in dark red, white and clear with chrome parts and real rubber wheels. The red is an incredible glossy red, so this was likely an early run when the molds were still highly polished. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The Starbird-designed Predicta was the crowd's favorite, travelling over 50,000 miles coast-to-coast and winning many car shows, including the famous Oakland Roadster Show.

Power was provided by a 392 CID '57 Chrysler Fuel Injection engine.
