Revell Lincoln Futura Show Car, 1/25, 1270

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

1995 reissue of the famous 'S' kit and an ideal builder. Features dramatic show-car styling, full interior and dash, driver and passenger figures, clear 'bubble' canopy, rotating wheels, chrome front and rear bumper, emblem and side trim and more. Molded in mint green (like the box art) and clear plastic. Never started. The parts that were factory sealed are still sealed; the few parts that were not inventoried and inventoried complete. Includes instructions. Ford created the Lincoln Futura as a concept car to promote Lincoln. The designers were Ford lead stylists John Jajjar and Bill Schmidt. Unlike many concept cars, this one was fully operational. The basis of the chassis was the Continental Mark II and she was powered by a 368 cubic inch Lincoln engine and powertrain. The car was hand built by Ghia iin Italy and originally cost $250,000, or about $2.3 million in modern USD. The car was a big success for Ford and brought significant recognition in toys, movies and the show circuit. It was first displayed in 1955. When Ford was done, they sold the car to George Barris for $1. Because it was never titled and could not insured, Barris parked it behind the shop. However, in 1966 Barris was asked to make a car for the Batman TV series. Dean Jefferies was originally contracted with, but he could not make the car in time. Barris thought the Futura would make a fine basis for the Batmobile, and so it did. Barris always retained ownership of the car, leasing it to the studio for filming. In 2013 he sold the car to a collector for 4.62 Million US Dollars.

Hudson Miniatures 1906 Columbia Electric Old Timers, 1/16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

Dated 1949 and very well detailed for that time. Big scale kit features numerous die-cut and machined-to-shape wooden parts, beautiful plastic wheels, leaf spring assemblies and lanterns and a number of metal parts, accessories and die-cut cardstock. The kit has never been started. The parts have been inventoried 100% complete and includes large, excellent, detailed plans with instructions. The Columbia Electric was manufactured by the Electric Vehicle Co. of Hartford, Conn. It had a 1.5 HP motor with chain drive and three speeds. It cost $1350 in 1906 and tipped the scales at 1660 pounds. We think of electric cars as 'new' today but they are anything but. There were many advantages (and manufacturers) of these cars. There were no fuel lines and radiators to freeze in the winter and no overheating in the summer. They used no smelly gasoline and produced no odor when operated. The complete lack of noise made them popular with the ladies and the range was between 40 and 50 miles on a charge - not bad at all considering you could not very far anyway (on regular business or errands) in 1906. 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.

The antenna and pitot are present but the machine guns are gone. The Hawk P-36A has the dubious distinction of fighting on both sides and for more countries than any other plane in history during the opening years of WWII. This Hawk, one in a long progression of famous fighter aircraft, was the winner of a 1935 competition. The USAA Corps received the first aircraft in April of 1938 and the French ordered 100 aircraft in May of the same year. French Hawks shot down just over 30 German planes during the battle for France. The Germans captured the aircraft and sold them to Finland. Others were captured when the Germans overran Norway. In all over 800 Hawks were produced and served in China, Netherlands East Indies, Portugal, Great Britain, Thailand, Argentina and Peru. Although an excellent fighter in 1935, the Hawk was outclassed by the time the war started but when flown properly still gave a good account of itself.
