Tilt Cessna Skyhawk 172 With Floats - Motorized With Working Landing Light - (ex Marui), 1/36, MT49-500

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Very rare, large-scale model from original Marui molds. Well detailed and features all hardware and wiring for a motorized propeller, hardware for working landing light, working trailing edge wing flaps, rudder and elevators, detailed cockpit, opening left and right cabin doors, positionable standing and sitting pilot figures, complete floats and more. The battery compartment is cleverly located on the fuselage underside aft of the cabin. Includes a large, extensive and colorful decal sheet with most if not all stripes and markings shown on the box art aircraft. Never started. The small parts (clear, pilots and hardware) are still in the factory sealed bag. The other parts have been inventoried complete. Includes decals and instructions. Please note that Tilt did not furnish the motor and light bulb with these kits. The common Mabuchi FA-130 or modern equivalent will work perfectly and any small 1.5v railway light would fit the landing light. The box displays slighter better than the 'good-' grade but is rated as such because there are three tears on the long and short sides of the box.

Revell 1915 Ford Model T Sedan Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H42

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

1952 early issue molded in black plastic. These issues feature the same 5 car artwork on every box; the only way to identify the contents was an ink-stamped name on the box ends. This kit has never been started. It has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions present. 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!
