Revell 1893 Duryea Highway Pioneers - US Antique Series, 1/32, H61-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

Sold   

Original issue dated 1954 in rare investment-grade 'near mint+' condition inside and out. The US Antique series was the first one to have real box art for the exact kit inside. This kit is from old hobby shop stock and has never been sold retail until now. Inside the box, it has not been started. All the parts are still factory sealed in the original 'krinkle' bag. Includes instructions. This is from the issues produced with Gowland & Gowland as it carries their 'balloon' logo on the box top a the lower right. Not long after this, the Gowland logo would disappear completely, leaving only the Revell logo. It is also worth noting that this is one of the first non-generic Highway Pioneers boxes. Earlier boxes were all the same, with the kit number and car stamped on the side, usually with a red or black rubber stamp. This box is completely dedicated to the Duryea kit, and even has advertisements for very early Pre-S issue Revell 1954 ship and aircraft kits on the long sides. 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.

Eureka Hobby Grumman F8F-2 Bearcat (F8F) - 36 Inch Wingspan Class B Flying Aircraft

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

Extremely rare, highly prefabricated kit from post-war Japan. Most likely from the early 1960s. These kits were produced to complete in the saturated American market, and they distinguished themselves by the quality and amount of work already done. This large-scale model can be operated with B or C class engines and features a beautiful aluminum full cowl, pre-assembled landing gear struts with rubber tires & metal hubs and sheet metal gear doors soldered in place, rubber tail wheel with metal hub, completed soldered gas tank, clear vacuform canopy (still excellent and not yellowed), diecut hardwood fuselage bulkheads, die-cut fuselage keels, metal hardware, finished wood prop, die-cut ribs and a very large number of other factory cut parts (both large and small), sheeting wood, full size plans, color insignia and more. Never started and complete. Eureka Hobby made a large line of giant scale gas powered models; they were not inexpensive, which is what makes them very rare today. This Bearcat was $8 in the early 1960s. Other aircraft produced, along with the wingspans and price are as follows: F4U Corsair (31" $10), Me-109E (36" $8), FW-190 (36" $8 and 26" $5.95, AD-4 Skyraider (36" $8), AD-2 Skyraider (24.5" $4.95), L-17 Navion (33" $8), F-94C Starfire with an all metal body and wings for Tiger-Jet engine (31" and $19.95, DC-6B (73", 59" long, four tanks, aluminum cowls, shock absorbing gear, four props for $47.50 - I had one of these, it was an amazing kit), Super DC-3 (61" $29.95, Fairchild Packet Transport (56" $29.50), C-45 Twin Beech (45" $28), Military DC-3 or C-47 (48" $24.50), SA-16 Albatross (54" $25.95), P-2V4 Neptune (51" $21.50), Commando (62" $28), Mig-15 (all metal body and wing, designed for Tiger Jet engine, 36" $22.50), F-84E Thunderjet (37.5" for Dyna-Jet fully enclosed engine and has rear aluminum fuselage $22.50) and finally a B-29 - the line flagship. This model had a 7 foot wingspan, was 59" long, was entirely wood planked and had numerous special features - all for only $39.50. San Diego Model Shop was at least one of the US distributors for these models.

Shortly after being declared ready for service, she took part in the Norway campaign. Despite alert defenses, Blucher and Lutzow sailed up the narrow passage with hopes of landing their infantry on target. The Norwegians were not fooled opened fire with 15cm shore batteries, immediately scoring hits on Blucher and then Lutzow. Blucher ran from the arc of the guns but stumbled onto an alert shore torpedo battery, which scored two devastating hits. The Blucher had the distinction of of being the only capital ship sunk by a shore-based torpedo battery during WWII. It is interesting that the old adage about shore based guns and ships was tested yet again and found to be true. It is reported that the Germans did not even know where the fire was coming from. Such long term, completely immobile defenses should have been well documented.
