Hudson Miniatures 1909 Stanley Steamer - Old Timers, 1/16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$78   

Very well detailed large 1/16 kit from 1949. Features plastic wheels, grill, steering wheel, lights and other accessories and wooden main parts. Although all of Hudson's 1/16 kits have excellent detail, this one has even more detail than usual thanks to Hudson's engineers having access to the actual car. This kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts, plans and instructions present. 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.

Revell 1958 Piedmont Airlines Fairchild F-27 Friendship Decals, 1/94

Cardstock Paper Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$16   

Rare Revell / Colortone decal set in 'excellent++' condition for the Revell "S" Friendship. Fresh from climate controlled storage. This set sports the very colorful original paint scheme on the 1958 Piedmont launch of the F-27. Even includes the round stand decal. Fairchild had obtained a license to build the F-27 in the USA at about the same time that Fokker started up mass production. As it happened, Fairchild put aircraft into service before Fokker's F-27 rolled off the assembly line. Piedmont took deliver of the Fairchild built N2701R in October of 1958. They had been purchased as DC-3 replacements and flew up and down the eastern USA out of the Raleigh hub.

Revell Vostok - Russia's First Spacecraft, 1/24, H1844

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$115   

Still factory sealed. 1998 issue of the classic 1969 kit. Very large 1/24 scale, well detailed kit of Major Yuri Gagarin's spacecraft. Gagarin's flight was the first of 6 successful Vostok launches from the secret space center at Baikonur. Gagarin made one orbit in 108 minutes, which was enough to make him the first man in space. Titov followed in Vostok 2 and made 17 orbits. Other launches featured 4 mile passes in orbit, and Vostok 6 featured the first Woman Astronaut, Valentina Tereshkova. It is interesting that Vostok did not have attitude control for correct placement when re-entering the earth's atmosphere. The sphere was designed with the weight off-center, so it would automatically swing into position during the heat of reentry. Features detachable crew compartment, ejecting seat and Cosmonaut figure. Molded in metallic silver and clear and includes display stand.

In some cases, the specific car and owner is on the box.

Airfix Martin RB-57E or B-57B Canberra, 1/72, 05018

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$28

It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The box cover aircraft is from 460/DET 1, a small but doubly-staffed unit that was directly subordinate in mission operations to 7th Air Force headquarters at Tan Son Nhut Air Base. Tan Son Nhut was part of the large combination air base and commercial international airport adjacent to the South Vietnamese capital of Saigon. RB-57E aircraft derived their nickname from their call-sign which was 'Patty Lynn.' There were only four aircraft assigned but each had two rotating air crews. Mission imagery (film) was processed by the 12th Reconnaissance Intelligence Technical Sq, which was also located at the 7th AF HQ complex. Nominally they were assigned to the Huge 460th Tactical Recon Wing, to which the 12th Tactical Recon Sq (RF-4Cs)was also assigned. (Thanks to John Barlow for the history!)
