Hudson Miniatures 1903 Ford A Model With Working Brass Lanterns, 1/16

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$89   

Includes 'Made In Japan for Aristocraft 'Old Time Auto Headlights 1-12 volts brass. These lanterns are beautiful and they used the original Hudson plastic parts as a pattern as they are identical in every way, except these are brass and include operating lights. Never used and still factory sealed inside with instructions. The actual kit is dated 1949 and very highly detailed for that time. Features numerous die-cut, machined and cut wood parts, beautiful plastic wheels, lights, steering wheel, horn and other accessories, metal parts and die cut cardstock. Although all of Hudson's 1/16 kits have excellent detail, this one has even more detail than usual thanks to Hudson's engineers having access to the actual car. This kit has never been started. The small parts are still in the internally sealed factory bag and the other parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete with all parts and plans/instructions. This car was one of the first Ford Automobiles and the first 'A' model. It sold for $900 in 1903. 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.

Krugozor Yakovlev Yak-18 - Light Acrobatic Aircraft, 1/40

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG

$38   

Still factory sealed. Classic Cold War kit in large 1/40 scale. I have listed this as a Krugozor ('Horizon') release as it has their logo and name on a short side and appears to be dated 1975, which would align with Krugozor production. Krugozor (or MFDI) took over Yunyj Tyechinik production in the mid 1970s and production continued till 1993. Yunyj Tyechinik orignally succeeded MZMPI, which was the first kit manufacture in the USSR.
