Airfix 1914 WWI Old Bill Troop Transport Bus - (1910 Type B Bus), 1/32, 573

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$52   

Rare 1960s Type Three Logo issue of the Military Version of the Type B Civil bus. During WWI, the British pressed these London buses into military service with modifications, the most obvious being the boarded-up sides. Quite a number were shipped overseas. They were used at Flanders as troop transports and ambulances. Airfix had access to 'Ole Bill,' which still exists and was representative of the buses sent to Flanders. Airfix took the already well detailed Type B Bust kit and added a big sheet of completely colored and decorated 'wood' sides and badges, adding 6 detailed military figures with accessories and molding the kit in Khaki. Includes green side panels, military driver and troops, over 100 parts, complete interior and dashboard, suspension, exhaust and drive line detail and more. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes side panels instructions. Please NOTE: the box top has closed tears which have been taped from behind.

Revell 1915 Fiat Tourer Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H55-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$44   

1953 early issue molded in red acetate plastic. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. This is from the issues produced with Gowland & Gowland as it carrier their 'balloon' logo on the side. 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.

Hudson Miniatures 1914 Regal Lil' Old Timers 'Quickie Kit', 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$46   

Rare. When the Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' burst upon the hobby scene in 1951, they started a hobby revolution. Plastic model kits were not new in 1951, but successful mass marketing of plastic kits was new. The sensation swept the country, and Gowland & Revell could not make the kits fast enough. The fact that the public was buying these models shocked the successful hobby establishment. One such manufacture was Hudson Miniatures. In the 1940s, Hudson had established a name in making 1/16 scale 'Old Timer' models of automobiles. These were excellent kits with wood and metal parts, but a high degree of skill was required to carve and finish the wood parts. In the late 1940s, they added some injection molded plastic parts (usually acetate wheels) to the series but did not consider a completely plastic kit. When Hudson saw what was happening with the Highway Pioneers, he began to design his own 1/32 scale line called 'Lil Old Timers', which hit the stores in 1954. An early paper fold-out catalog shows 18 models including some real gems like the 1910 International Harvester Passenger Car, 1911 Brush Delivery Truck and 1906 Columbia Electric Car just to name a few. The line was bought by Revell a short time after the release, and Revell did reissue some (but not all) of the kits. As you would expect from Hudson, this is a nice kit with excellent moldings and detail for the time. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. The 1914 Regal Coupe is perhaps the rarest of all cars ever built in America. It was underslung, which was rare for the time, and the body was all wood and similar to old horse-drawn carriages of colonial times. The design was sometimes called a Colonial Coupe. The large car seated only two people and could hit 40 mph with it's 25 hp engine.

The Mercer was perhaps the most famous sports car of it's day, and it can be successfully argued that it was America's first sports car. The 30 horsepower 'T' head 4 cylinder engine sped it along at over 80 miles per hour. A 1914 Mercer clocked 112 mph at Daytona Beach - no mean feat for that age.
