Aurora Grumman F9F Panther - 1st Brooklyn Issue, 1/48, 22

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+++

$1500   

Rare 1st issue from 1952 in the one-piece flip top box. 100% original and correct. The model is molded in the correct gloss dark blue with a clear square 'Brooklyn' stand, stand arm and canopy. Being the first issue, the model does not significant rivet detail, nor was it molded with landing gear or missiles. The entire kit is 13 parts including the stand and stand arm. The instructions are the correct early small Brooklyn version with very minor bug damage. Decals are correctly marked 'The Tatem Company' and are in excellent condition with some curl and minimal yellowing. The box is one of the better I have seen. It is intact - there are no missing parts and no repairs. As is typical with this issue, the fragile box has some small tears, creases and edge wear as shown. In summary, a 100% correct, never started and complete kit for the advanced collector of Aurora or military aircraft models. This kit must be shipped insured. Kit History: In the early 1950s Aurora was making children's toys. Since they were always looking for new avenues of business, the three founders were interested in the new fad of 'plastic models'. They were shown the Hawk F-90 and F9F kits in 1/48, and the rest is history. Aurora copied the F9F and F-90 to issue their very first plastic kits. The boxes were two color one-piece flip top boxes of very thin cardboard; the damaged so easily that the kits were immediately reissued in the more familiar 'hardbox' of a litho slick glued to heavy cardboard.

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+++

$42

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.
