Revell Clipper Stag Hound - 'The Largest Merchant Ship of Her Day', 1/216, H325-300

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

1962 issue with framable box artwork by John Steel. The box is in exceptional 'excellent++' condition with like new color and gloss and four solid corners. Very nicely detailed like all early Revell sailing ships. Full hull kit features all deck fittings, premolded ratlines, decals, flags, rigging material and full rigging instructions. Molded in three colors. The model has not been started. Inside, the kit is like new. The parts and paperwork are still in the factory sealed bag. The Stag Hound was designed by the famous Donald McKay and was launched on December 7, 1850. She is famous for her great speed and turned a nice profit for her owners. The most notable event was when the Stag Hound was asked to take a copy of President Lincoln's inaugural address to London. During this run, she raced the steamer 'America' and won easily. Shortly after this she was lost off Brazil to a spontaneous combustion of her coal cargo. The crew successfully abandoned ship. The captain was the last to leave. He lowered the American Flag, wrapped it around himself and jumped overboard.

Revell Lockheed F-94C Starfire Interceptor - Pre 'S' Issue, 1/56, H210-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

1954 Pre-S issue. The box is solid and has excellent color and gloss but has significant wear has shown. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Decals and instructions are in 'excellent' condition. This kit has a fascinating history The first issue was in the simple and thin one-piece box and Revell quickly converted to this two-piece box as it was much more durable and a full-color lithographed 'slick' could be used. For the second issue, Revell added rivet and raised panel line detail as well as landing gear, a two piece box and H210-79 kit number. The famous 'Globe' clear stand was added, but in this issue it had the rare one piece stand arm and the instructions reflected that. Revell quickly realized that the one-piece arm was not strong enough, and quickly modified it to the familiar three piece arm for the 3rd (this) issue. The kit went on to be reissued several more times with different box art and even Revell of Germany and England had European issues as well.

Fador 1905 REO Runabout, 1/16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

Rare kit dated 1949. Very well detailed for that time. Big-scale model features numerous die-cut, machined and saw-cut wooden parts, excellent plastic wheels, grill, steering wheel, lanterns and horn, other metal parts and metal stock and die-cut cardstock parts. Come with superb, large fold out plans that show four elevations drawings, many various detail drawings, a photo of the finished model and extensive text instructions. The kit has never been started. The small parts are still factory bag sealed and the parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete. Fador was another maker of big 1/16 classic cars and competed with the bigger Hudson Miniatures. Fador called the line 'Smallersters' and the design & parts breakdown of the kits are very similar. The full name was Fador Mfg. Company and the address was 501E. Clinton St., Elmira, NY. Hudson Miniatures, launched in 1948, apparently beat Fador to the market by at least a year or more. Hudson's national success probably lead Fador to choose the same subject (antique cars) and in the same scale, 1/16. Hudson snatched up the most obvious classic automobiles for kit subjects, forcing Fador to select very carefully. Fortunately, they chose well and they are still the only models ever made of these subjects. There is no record of Fador making any plastic kits; the introduction and overwhelming popularity of the Revell/Gowland Highway Pioneers and the models that quickly followed probably drove them out of the market. This was the fate of most wooden kit manufacturers who did not make the transition. In 1949 the Fador line consisted of a 1909 Hupmobile Roadster, 1904 Cadillac Runabout, 1905 REO 4 Passenger Runabout and one kit that was "3 In 1' - it made one of the following: 1909 EMF Single Rear Seater, 1909 EMF Touring or EMF Roadster. The Baker Electric kit was introduced in 1950 and possibly others as well.

Consolidated Model Engineering Bay Ridge Pacer by Sal Tabi With Liquids - 53 Inch Wingspan

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

Rare 1941 model and even rarer in unbuilt, complete condition. The Pacer was a Sal Tabi gas free flight design but can be easily converted to R/C and electric power. This model came from the estate of a very active & particular early aircraft kit collector. It is factory-new inside features quality balsa printwood, factory-cut-to-shape balsa blocks, stringers and spars, plywood firewall, hardwood parts (some factory cut and routed), silkspan covering material, a set of Trexler Balloon Wheels (still in the original box), two pages of detailed instructions and superb full-size plans. It even includes the liquids advertised on the box top - two sealed tins of dope and color. Never started and complete. The Pacer, like many other early gas aircraft, was designed to climb rapidly to maximum altitude then enter a very stable glide and 'Sniff For Thermals'- the honored pastime of a generation of model enthusiasts. Flying model aircraft predated powered flight; however, balsa wood and printwood were not introduced until the early 1930s and the hobby took off, as well as the hunt for thermals. Gas flight began in the early 1930s, and early gas powered models, all powered by Brown engines, took home so many awards that they were forever separated in competition from rubber powered models. Design of gas models was tricky since RC (radio control) models could not yet be applied to the mass market; so a gas model had to not only fly and climb under power, but then glide sufficiently - all without any operator inputs once the airplane took off. Getting the wing up out of the propeller airflow was a huge improvement, and this type of design proliferated. This is one example of a parasol (with a clever cabin) style 1940s free-flight competition aircraft.
