Hudson Miniatures 1911 Brush Model C Delivery - Old Timers, 1/16

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Dated 1949. Large scale and very well detailed for that time. Features numerous die-cut and machined/cut to shape wooden parts, beautiful plastic wheels, grill, steering wheel, lights and other accessories, metal louvered hood, metal stock and parts and die-cut cardstock. Although all of Hudson's 1/16 kits are excellent, this one has even more detail than usual thanks to Hudson's engineers having access to the actual car owned by Mr. Austin Clark. This kit has never been started. The small parts are still factory bag sealed while the parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete including two sheets of excellent plans/instructions. The Brush Delivery Model C was manufactured by Brush Runabout Company, which was a division of the famous United States Motors. It sold for $650 and was powered by a one cylinder 64 HP engine linked to a gear-set type two speed + reverse multiple disc clutch transmission. 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.

Aurora Boeing B-29 Superfortress, 1/76, 372-259

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Rare 1957-1962 issue retaining the same artwork as the 1956 issue. This kit has arguably the most dramatic and fanciful B-29 composition from the 'Golden Era' of modeling. Note the square 'Northern Lights' logo has been replaced with the 'Famous Fighters' Aurora sunburst oval logo and there is a '$2.59' price circle at the upper right. I believe the 3rd issue. The box is in 'very good' condition with nice color and gloss. There are no split corner and no repairs. It does have general even wear. Molded in gloss silver and clear, with a big clear 'triangle-based' Aurora stand. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes 'near mint' condition decals and instructions. Responding to market information that boys wanted larger kits, Aurora introduced the B-26 followed by the B-29 and B-25, all of which sold well for many years- almost right up until the end.

Revell Moon Ship 'S' Issue, 1/96, H1825-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

Rare 1957 first and only issue. When sales of the dramatic XSL-01 Moon Rocket did not meet expectations, Revell molded the top stage in a different color plastic from the XSL-01, added a special 3D Moon Base Stand and boxed it as a stand-alone kit. The result was this Moon Ship with incredible box art. The box art invites you to 'Enter the Age of Space' with these action features: retractable landing ski, removable fuselage section with detailed cabin with controls and instrument panels and a crew of three astronauts. The box is in 'Very Good++' condition with perfect color and gloss, four solid corners, no tear, rips, holes or fading and no price tag or tape (other than the factory sealing tape of course). There is general wear as shown.. Molded in correct baby blue and clear plastic. This model has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Aurora German Sea Raider Atlantis 'The Rattlesnake of the Ocean', 1/456, 710-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

First issue. The hardbox is dated 1959 and has 'Famous Fighters' in the oval border of the logo, with 'Aurora' over the 'Northern Lights.' Dramatic Jo Kotula artwork. This is the only model ever made of the famous (or infamous) German WWII converted merchant raider which was the subject of several books and a major movie called 'Under Ten Flags'. The long WWII voyage was legendary, and the ship is well represented in this full hull model. Covers can be removed to reveal hidden guns, torpedo tubes and the Ar-196 float plane. The box has four solid corners, no repairs and 'very good' gloss and color - there is wear as shown, especially at the corners. The model has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Shipping insurance is required. From modeler Stephen Payne: Recommend that the builder or collector of this kit add the following books to their collection-The German Raider Atlantis by Captain Bernhard Rogge & Wolfgang Frank & Sea Raider Atlantis, Story of a German Surface Raider by Ulrich Mohr & A.V. Sellwood. The first book is by the ATLANTIS commander, Kapitan zur See Bernhard Rogge. He oversaw the transformation and outfitting in Bremen and captained the ship during her 602 day operational voyager which sank or captured 22 ships totaling 144,384 t (142,104 long tons). Rogge also was one of the few German officers of flag rank who was not arrested by the Allies after the war due to the way he had exercised his command of Atlantis. Captain J. Armstrong White, captain of the British CITY OF BAGHDAD, which Atlantis sank in July 1941, stated, "His treatment of prisoners left respect, instead of hatred."The second book is by the ATLANTIS First Officer, Ulrich Moher. Both books read much the same as the events related are the same, but it is interesting to see these events from the two perspectives. Captain White (see above) wrote the foreword to Atlantis, the Story of a German Surface Raider, written by U. Mohr & A. V. Sellwood.The German auxiliary cruiser Atlantis (HSK 2), known to the Kriegsmarine as Schiff 16 (SHIP 16) and to the Royal Navy as Raider-C, was a converted merchant vessel to German Hilfskreuzer (auxiliary cruiser) used for commerce raiding. Commerce raiders did not seek to engage warships, but rather attack enemy merchant shipping; the measures of success are tonnage destroyed (or captured) and time spent "at large" holding up enemy resources. Atlantis had the longest raiding career of any German commerce raider in either world war.
