Revell 1910 Cadillac Limousine Highway Pioneers - Series Two, 1/32, H39

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$44   

1952 early issue molded in light blue plastic. These issues feature the same 5 car artwork on every box; the only way to identify the contents was an ink-stamped name on the box ends. This kit has never been started. All parts are still sealed in the factory bag. Includes instructions. These kits have a fascinating history. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream and never made the top 10 list of boys activities. Spurred on by the nation-wide aviation craze in the 1920s, many became modelers and built flying or static wooden models of airplanes, ships, trains, automotive and other subjects. Basic kits existed, but many of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s when the Gowland & Gowland/Revell Highway Pioneers became the sales sensation of the year. Demand was so great that the factories could not keep up and almost overnight 'model building' was mainstream. The phenomenon of the 'Highway Pioneers' 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 fit the bill: they could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real cars. The success of the Highway Pioneers lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the late 1950s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys...and many adult males too!

Maircraft Heinkel He-51 - Solid Wood Model Airplane, 1/48, S-9

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$25   

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 a full size plan with instructions steps, fuselage, wings and tail that are 2D profile cut, clear material for the windshield, fully formed wheels and insignia on the plans. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions.

Hawk TWO Heinkel He-112 Fighters - Solid Wood Aircraft Model, 1/48, 86

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$58   

SALE!! Includes two never started and complete kits in one box. Rare model from 1940 for the advanced collector. Hawk was one of the few manufacturers making wooden kits to a constant scale of 1/48. However, the company was innovative as it quickly included injection molded accessories. This model features 3D cut fuselage, profile (2D) cut wings and tail feathers, turned & fully finished wooden wheels and spinner, stamped four blade propeller, insignia sheet and excellent plans with template views. Never started and complete with all parts for two kits, two sets of plans and two insignia sheets. NOTE: the kit is simply called the "Heinkel Fighter." From what what can tell (my best guess), this is a He-112, probably the V-10 with the big undernose radiator scoop.
