Revell 1907 Renault Limousine Highway Pioneers - Series Four, 1/32, H53-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$44   

1953 early issue molded in salmon plastic. This is from the issues produced with Gowland & Gowland as it carrier their 'balloon' logo on the side. The model has not been started. The parts are still sealed in the original 'krinkle' bag and the kit is complete with instructions. Before the 1950s 'model building' never made the top 10 list of boy's activities. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream. Shortly after the turn of the century, many dedicated modelers built flying or static airplanes, ship, train, automotive or other subjects. Basic kits existed, but the majority of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s. The phenomenon of the Revell/Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' car kits was a significant force in proving that model building as a hobby could have mass appeal, provided that the kits were easy enough to build and finish. These 1/32 scale vehicles could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real car. The Highway Pioneers series lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys.

Cardstock Paper Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$28   

From 1978. Very high quality card kit with excellent full color printing, including reflective silver surfaces. The kit has never been started and is complete with all parts and instructions. Randolph Hall came to Rochester, NY in 1928 from the Thomas Morse Aircraft Corporation and founded Cunningham-Hall. His first aircraft, the PT-6, was successful and flown by Jimmy Doolittle and Earhart, just to name a few. In 1934 he designed the GA-21, thinking that it would make a nice military trainer and civilian sport aircraft. Changes by 1936 brought it up to the GA-36. The GA-36 was flown successfully through the 1930s but military orders did not develop, probably due to it's cost, which was high in this class. In 1941, the prototype was taken to Michigan, where the engine was removed and the airframe left in a field to rust. In the spring of 1979 the aircraft was returned to Rochester and restoration began. Once complete, she was moved to the Niagara Aerospace Museum.
