Hudson Miniatures 1913 Mercer Raceabout - Lil' Old Timers Quickie Ki, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM++

Sold   

Rare and in investment-grade 'near mint++' condition inside and out. This is old hobby shop stock that has not been sold retail until now. Molded in bright yellow plastic. Never started and inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. These kits have a very interesting history. 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 it's 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. 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.

ITC Halibut Diving Motorized Submarine - (SSGN 587 Cam-A-Matic Electric Powered Regulus Sub), 1/175, 3660-998

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair-

Sold   

From 1960. This model is the zenith of the ITC Design and Engineering Team and maybe of all operational plastic model kits. It is not only rare but is considered the most complicated operating model ever produced. The large 24.75 inch submarine sails from the power of a large electric motor driving twin geared propellers. It changes headings, dives, surfaces and a Regulus II missile comes out of the hanger and launches...all automatically. The engineering on this kit is fantastic and a major break-through for that time. The model worked and did work well, but was certainly not a toy for inexperienced model builders. The high price ($9.98) and difficulties that youngsters had with assembly and operation made for a short production run. The fact the ITC left the model business for good shortly after releasing the kit contributed to the scarcity as well. Inside, the kit is in excellent condition. It has never been started. All of the small and medium sized metal parts and hardware are still in the factory sealed bag. The red plastic parts and metal control linkage rods are still in the factory sealed bag as well. The large metal parts and the white parts have been inventoried 100% complete. Includes decals and instructions in 'excellent++' condition. The blue display cardboard is all present and in 'excellent' condition with no stains and very light discoloration as the only flaw. The boxtop is only graded 'fair-'; it presents OK from a distance but up close you can spot significant wear, edge litho chips, missing sections at the lower right top and the same corner, a 3.5" strip of the top left long box side and a great deal of other miscellanious damage as well. Just as important is the fact that the top and lower box has a great deal of clear tape on them both holding them together. So let me be clear that the box is there not in collectible condition; that is why it is graded 'Fair-.' NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured.

After the war, Lindberg and Olsen had a strong hand in early United States injection molded kit development. Please see the article located on this website about early USA plastic kit manufacturers.

Maircraft Brewster Buffalo F2A3 - Solid Wood Model Airplane, 1/48, S17

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Maircraft was originally founded in the early or mid 1930s by Gordon Christoph and went by the name Aircraft Model Company. The company produced a typical line of solid 'profile cut' kits that required the usual high talent levels for carving and finishing. A former Comet Model Airplane & Supply Co. salesman, Jack Mair, bought the company in the early 1940s and renamed it Maircraft. This company was one of the handful of solid kit producers who issued models in a consistent 1/48 scale during the 1930s and 1940s (others included Hawk and Dyna-Model). This lead to one of the most desirable and rare model kits ever produced in the USA - the wood/plastic 1/48 United DC-3 model issued immediately after World War 2. Other than the P-61 and a few other Maircraft offerings, most were simple kits that sold for the low price of about 35 cents and gave the owners many hours of pleasurable work. This kit features color insignia, a full size three view plans with templates, hardwood fuselage that is 3D cut (~80% done) 2D cut hardwood wings, 2 hardwood printwood and a factory-sealed envelope of small parts. The kit is still packed in the factory tissue; I opened it just enough to make certain that the non-sealed parts were all present then put it back into the box.
