Hudson Miniatures 1903 Cadillac Old Timers, 1/16

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$52   

Dated 1949 and very highly detailed and prefabricated for that time. Large scale kit measures 7 inches long when built. Features plastic wheels, steering and lamps, die cut and factory machines wooden parts and a small number of metal and accessory parts. The kit has never been started. The small parts are still factory bag sealed and all other parts have been inventoried present including highly detailed plans/instructions. The 1903 Cadillac was the very first production Caddy and the car that began the legend. This particular model was capable of 30 mph with four passengers. Its 11 hp engine could negotiate a 45% grade with ease. The car was first test driven on Oct 17, 1902. In January of '03 it was taken to the New York Automobile show where orders for 2286 were placed. By mid week, Cadillac announced that were 'Sold Out.' This makes sense when you realize that in 1903 all cars had a rough machine-shop or 'garage' fit and finish; the new Cadillac looked like a Jewel in comparison. Later that year the Cadillac placed or won challenges and reliability contests worldwide and earned the status of 'Standard of the World.' 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.

$125   

Dramatic Ray Gaedke artwork. Rare early issue from the 1950s. The Convair VTO was a Navy program for a high performance zero-length take off fighter.

Lindberg is a company with a fascinating history The original 'Lindberg Line' stretches back to the 1930s when Paul Lindberg drew plans for famous modeling magazines and marketed his balsa wood 'stick and tissue' by urging dealers to carry the '...Complete Lindberg Line'. 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.

Condor Messerschmitt Me-163A, 1/72, C72002

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed

$28   

This is the prototype of the Me-163B Komet. The Me-163A was derived from Dr. Lippisch DFS tail-less gliders. These were seen as ideal platforms for the new rocket engines being developed. Tail-less DFS designed continued to fly, but now with pusher propeller engines installed. All went well, so the DFS team was moved to Messerschmitt to build the 163A. After gliding test, powered test were held in which new airspeed records were set. Work quickly moved to the production Me-163B Komet. Still factory sealed.

Pavla Arado Ar-231 V1 U-Boat Aircraft, 1/72, 72014

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$24   

Limited production kit. Contains photoetched details. The small Ar-231 was designed as a scout/recon aircraft to be carried on U-Boats in a water-tight hangar.

Would look great with a modified Revell 1/72 U-Boat kit. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Greenbank Ryan M-1 Mailplane - (Hisso or J-4B) Colorado Airways or Pacific Air Transport - Bagged, 1/72, 31-195

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed

$59   

Still factory sealed. Very rare kit. Has optional parts to build one of two versions, the Hisso or J-4b powered. Complete injection molded kit in two colors with rubber wheels, full decals for US Mail-Colorado Airways or Pacific Air Transport Air Mail, instructions and painting guide. The M-1 holds two very special places in American Aviation History. First, it is the first production monoplane and played a key role in early airmail. In the 1920s, Government contracts for flying airmail on a $/mile basis was about the only thing keeping commercial aviation alive and growing. In 1926, the M-1 was the first aircraft to fly with PAT, Pacific Air Transport. PAT linked Seattle to LA with mail contracts. The other unique item is that this was the Ryan NYPs (Lindbergh's aircraft) father. When Lindy visited Ryan in 1927, he flew the M-1. He requested an airplane that was similar but larger - thus the NYP was born and aviation history was made.
