Dumas Dauntless Commuter Boat And Yacht With 2332 Running Hardware Kit - 49.5 Inch Ship For R/C or Display, 1/15, 1211

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

Still in mint condition. I received this from a discriminating collector. The model was still sealed in the brown shipping paper from AHC (America's Hobby Center) - never opened! Obviously, I had to open it just to see what the model was. The result is a factory-new kit with all the small parts still internally sealed and the other parts and paperwork untouched. And also included is the rare running hardware set; please see the photos to see what is included in that. Never started and complete. And from the Dumas website - We at Dumas are pleased to be able to take you back to an era of elegance. In 1946 Sparkman and Stevens designed a 66 ft. commuter boat for the express purpose of carrying commuters down the Hudson River into New York. What a glorious way to beat the traffic. These commuters were used by their owners as everyday transportation to and from work, and for pleasure trips to their favorite spots. The most famous of these commuters was the Dauntless. The Dauntless was owned by a prominent New York family. They undoubtedly considered the Dauntless a great diversion from their day to day business dealings. The days of the Dauntless are gone but you can bring them back. The Dauntless features top quality construction materials. The kit is made almost entirely of 1/8 in. mahogany plywood. All parts are cleanly die-cut, and we have included a variety of detail parts including 38 cast metal fittings. The size of the Dauntless leaves the door wide open for different powering methods. The obvious choices would be scale electric power, high speed electric power, or twin gas power, but you may have your own ideas.

Revell 1904 Nash Rambler - Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H47-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM++

Sold   

In rare, investment grade condition. This is old hobby shop stock that has never been offered for retail sale until now. 1953 first year issue with the box is in amazing 'near mint++' condition and inside, the kit has never been started. They are still factory sealed in the 'krinkle' bag. Complete with instructions. Molded in bright yellow plastic. Before the 1950s 'model building' never made the top 10 list of boy's activities. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream. Shortly after the turn of the century, many dedicated modelers built flying or static airplanes, ship, train, automotive or other subjects. Basic kits existed, but the majority of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s. The phenomenon of the Revell/Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' car 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 could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real car. The Highway Pioneers series lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys.

Sold

The Type XXI U-Boats were the world's first true submarines; they could travel at high speeds for great distances underwater and attack without visual contact with the targets.

A development of the Walther Peroxide Boats, the XXIs were seen as a faster way to put a more advanced submarine into service.
