Revell Highway Pioneers Six Kit Gift Pack - American Car Seires / 1910 Studebaker Electric / 1903 Cadillac / 1910 Ford Model T / 1900 Packard Roadster / 1909 Stanley Steamer / 1903 Ford Model A, 1/32, P395

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Very rare set from about 1953 which includes all six models, a glass bottle of "Pactra's Cement For Revell Kits", a brand-new Pactra special issue "Highway Pioneers Painting Set" in a unique box with their legendary 'Namel paints in red, yellow, blue, white, black, gold, chrome silver and thinner and a brush. Never started; all six kits are still factory sealed in the original 'krinkle' bags and include the correct instructions. Molded in dark green, bright red, dark blue and black plastic. Inside, the kit is correct with all cardboard dividers. 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. Starting the 1910 and '20s, many dedicated modelers began building 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. The availability of wooden model kits expanded rapidly after Lindberg's flight due to the nation-wide 'Aviation Craze.' However, it was widely reported by hobby publications that because of the high degree of skill required in building wooden aircraft that less than 80% of the kits purchased were successfully completed (and far fewer flown). That changed in the early 1950s with the introduction of plastics and injection molding machinery. The phenomenon of the all-plastic Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' car kits was a significant force in proving that model building as a hobby could have mass appeal, since 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 - and had zero carving or painting required. The success of the Highway Pioneers series immediately lead to the production of ship, aircraft and vehicles in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys...and adult males as well.

Sold   

1961 USA issue hardbox in 'excellent+' condition. Color and gloss are as new and all four corners are solid. Light general wear is the only flaw.

Lindberg Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress, 1/64, 525-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

Very famous model kit from the late 1950s with dramatic box art by Ray Gaedke. This was the first big-scale, high quality kit ever made of the B-17 and Lindberg could hardly keep the hobby shop shelves stocked. If you have built this model, you know that it is well molded, fits together easily and has excellent detail for that time. It features movable rudder, elevators & ailerons, rotating and elevating gun turrets, retractable main landing gear and tail gear, crew members, 'good' cockpit detail, rotating propellers & wheels and a large, clear adjustable display stand. Inside, the kit has never been started and is inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please note that the box displays slightly better than the 'good+' rating but is graded as such because there is a piece of masking tape on the left short box side.

Revell 1909 Stanley Steamer - Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H34-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

1960 issue hardbox with full artwork; Highway Pioneers prior to this year simply had generic artwork and an ink stamped name on the box ends was the only way to identify the contents. This kit has never been started. All parts are still sealed in the factory bag. Includes instructions. The box would rate slightly higher than 'good++' but there is age foxing on the box side panels. 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!

Sun Star 1925 Ford Model T - 75th Anniversary Edition, 1/24, 1880

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

Sold   

Not a kit but a factory-assembled and painted metal model that is ready for display. Highly detailed featuring realistically opening hood, detailed engine, detailed interior, opening passenger side door, wheels that steer from the steering wheel, very good suspension, drive line and exhaust detail, rubber tires and more. Condition is 'excellent++' with only very slight wear. Does not appear to have ever been displayed; but most of the internal packing material is missing so I will pack it carefully. I would rate the condition as 'Near Mint' overall. Nothing is missing and there are repairs or broken parts; factory paint is excellent. The box has wear and one end flap has been glued back on.
