Plastic Model Kit

Sold   

Original dealer promotional model in very nice condition. It is 100% complete. This is a one-owner model that has always been adult owned. The tires are factory new - it has never been played with and never exposed to smoke. The friction motor still works. The body is in "excellent++' condition with only very slight warping. Body color is glossy with slight foxing. Chrome is very good to excellent. Clear is very good. Some of the fine trim (door handles etc) has been painted to 'professional' quality; it is good enough to pass for factory paint. The chassis has been painted black.

Hudson Miniatures 1904 Stevens-Duryea Old Timers, 1/16

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Very well detailed, large 1/16 kit from 1954. Features excellent plastic wheels, driving lanterns and leaf springs for all four wheels, black cloth convertible top cut to shape, red and black upholstery material, metal and wood accessories and wooden die-cut and stock material main parts. 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 have been been inventoried complete with all parts, plans and instructions. Please note, there are adult notes written on the plans to improve the accuracy of the model. The owner of these kits was a keen researcher and actually won a Hudson Miniature Old Timers Model Building Competition. 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. The 1911 Mercer Raceabout is one of the rarest American cars. The Mercer was built in Trenton, NJ and powered by a 30 hp T head 4 cylinder engine. Displacement was 300.7 cubic inches and the car had a wet clutch four speed transmission. The car weighed 2,500 lbs and cost $2600 and could do 112 mph. The Mercer was perhaps the most famous sports car of the time. It was rugged, handled very well and had excellent performance.

Revell Clipper Stag Hound 'The Largest Merchant Ship of Her Day', 1/216, H317

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

Sold   

Dated 1972 and from the superior 1950s 'S' kit molds. Very nicely detailed like all early Revell sailing ships. Features full hull, display stand, injection-molded ratlines, detailed deck fittings, optional vac sails (in mint condition), standing and running rigging material and illustrated, extensive rigging instructions. The kit has never been started. Inventoried with all plastic parts present. Includes flag sheet and instructions. NOTE: missing decals. Several small deck parts are a different color plastic; they are from the earlier issue of this same kit. The Stag Hound was designed by the famous Donald McKay and was launched on December 7, 1850. She is famous for her great speed and turned a nice profit for her owners. The most notable event was when the Stag Hound was asked to take a copy of President Lincoln's inaugural address to London. During this run, she raced the steamer 'America' and won easily. Shortly after this she was lost off Brazil to a spontaneous combustion of her coal cargo. The crew successfully abandoned ship. The captain was the last to leave. He lowered the American Flag, wrapped it around himself and jumped overboard.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

Fresh stock from a closed-down hobby shop; you can be the first owner of this model. Original issue and not the common reissue. Fantastic kit from the 1950s with a 'near mint' investment quality box with factory-new colors and gloss, four solid corners with no repairs, zero tape or tape marks (except the factory sealing tape of course), no fading and no litho damage. Flaws include a tiny amount of very light wear and a short, slight crease at the top right. Classic box art showing the Nike Ajax blowing up what appears to be a B-17 over an American city. Excellent model (for that time) with operating launcher that is made to hook to other Ajax models to create an entire battery. Molded in olive drab and white. The model has never been started. Everything is exactly as it left the factory, with the white parts still factory sealed; the olive drab parts were never factory sealed and have been inventoried 100% complete.

Gowland & Gowland Golden Hind Shipyard Ships in Bottles

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Rare, early, small scale ship kit from 1952. Very nicely detailed and molded for that time and includes a clear plastic 'bottle' for display inside. Features detailed hull, masts, sails, molded sea display base and clear sheet plastic with the delicately printed ratlines. Includes beautiful color instructions with the ship history, illustrations of assembly, how to set the sails and even rigging. The scale is not given, but the sea base measures 6.5"x2" and the ship is approximately 5 inches long. There is no assembly but NOTE: the hull is neatly painted red below the waterline. There is no other painting. Inventoried complete with all parts, bottle, cork and includes instructions. The box sides illustrates and names the 10 kits of this line. All were available in regular or 'Ship In A Bottle' (like this one) versions. The 'Bottle' was also available separately; it was cleverly molded so that the seam was exactly where a bottle seam was normally located back then and a cork stopper was included. The entire set consists of the Santa Maria 1492, Golden Hind 1588, Mayflower 1620, Bon Homme Richard 1779, SS Savannah 1819, The Flying Cloud 1849, Charles W. Morgan 1850, Gertrude L. Thebaud 1929, Frigate Constitution 1797 and US Revenue cutter 1849. It appears that Gowland & Gowland has not received the credit that it deserves in the plastic kit revolution that took America by storm in the early 1950s. Gowland developed the first all plastic car made in the USA in 1950, the 1911 Maxwell. Even more interesting is that Kevin and Jack Gowland developed the 'Highway Pioneers' in 1951 which heralded the future for the American Hobby Industry. The reason that Gowland's name is not in the fore-front of model history is that Precision Specialties (later Revell) did the distribution for Gowland.
