  Revell Model Kits

Revell Douglas AD-6 Skyraider - AH-1 Navy Attack Aircraft - 'S' Issue, 1/40, H269-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$179   

Very rare original "S" kit from 1959. The box states "So Realistic It Does Everything But Fly!" and that is no idle boast. It is full of action features; the wings fold, dive brakes operate, arresting hook moves, canopy slides to show full cockpit, landing gear retracts and cowling comes off to show fully detailed engine. The most interesting thing is that the landing gear retracts and extends with a very complicated gear system that is operated from a central point. Molded in the correct gloss medium gray and clear plastic. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Decals are in amazing 'near mint' condition with slight yellowing as the only flaw and the instructions are in the same condition also. Please note that the box is solid with 'very good' color and gloss, four perfect corners, no repairs, no price tags or tape (other than the factory sealing tape of course) but it is rated only 'good++' because it has age spotting; a series of small light brown spots on the box top and also on the left short box end.

Revell M-35 Military Truck, 1/40, H537-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$95   

Rare original issue dated 1958 with superb hardbox artwork. This is a very well detailed kit for that time and features good underside molded-in detail, rotating wheels, guard rails that convert into seats, opening tailgate, opening cab doors, detailed interior, driver figure and 6 soldiers, cable reels, duffle bags, radio, rifles, generator, mortar, machine gun and tripod. Molded in olive drab, clear and with flexible rubber tires. 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 'excellent' in the photo but is graded 'very good' because there is some bubbling in the litho, moderate scuffing on the short right side panel and one close split corner at the lower left.

Very rare. First and only issue from 1958 in an 'S' hardbox with unique artwork. This large (1/48) scale model is well molded and detailed for that time featuring driver and radio operator, interior, working drive wheels and flexible treads, machine gun that elevates & rotates and more.

The parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including decals and instructions. The box has like-new color and gloss, four solid corners, no fading, stains or price tags/tag marks but has the scuffs shown on the box top; hence the grade of 'Good++'

Revell Highway Pioneers Five Kit Gift Set - 1903 Model A Ford / 1910 Model T Ford / 1909 Stanley Steamer / 1903 Cadillac / 1900 Packard, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$139   

Very rare. From 1952 or '53. This is one of (if not) Revell's first gift set. It is Gowland-produced with no part number. Gowland designed and molded these kits as well as providing the box artwork (signed D.K. Gowland) and instructions - Revell did the marketing. Inside, the kit is correct with all cardboard dividers, all small parts still factory sealed in the correct wax paper bags, cars molded in red, black, dark blue, yellow and green, tires molded in black and correct instructions. The models have never been started. All kits have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts present. 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. By the late 1910 and early '20s, many dedicated modelers were 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. By the 1930s, the 'Aviation Craze" had taken hold of this country and kits appeared everywhere. However, it was estimated at the time that at least 80% of these were never sucessfully completed (and fewer than that flown). That changed in the early 1950s with the advent of plastics and affordable injection molding equipement. The phenomenon of the all-plastic 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 were completely molded to shape in color and could be built in an hour after dinner. When complete, they 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...and adult males as well!

Revell 1907 Renault Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H53-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$39   

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 'very 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.
