Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Rare original issue from 1955. This model has some of my favorite Revell 'S' artwork and is also an exemplary kit for that that time. Inside, the model is molded in the correct gloss dark red plastic and has not been started. The kit has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals, flag sheet and instructions. Please note that the box is only 'good-' because of one split corner, light overspray on the left box top (the left most 2 inches) and general significant wear.

Life-Like Combat Jeep And Trailer - With 3 GIs - (ex Revell, 1/40, 09652

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Rare model from the original 1950s Revell "S" Issue molds. Very well detailed featuring rotating wheels, radio, jerry cans, detailed chassis and suspension, tilting windshield, driver/soldier and general figure, detachable trailer with rotating wheels, generator, cable reel, packs, tool box and more. Molded in olive drab plastic and with metal axles. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. These molds must have had a very interesting history. The molds were cut in 1955 or 1956, either at Adams or by one of Revell's contractors. It appeared to be part of the Adams/Revell 1/40 line but Adams never issued the kit. UPC (Universal Power Master) had use of these molds in the 1960s are perhaps the early 1970s; however, the molds were probably in Japan as most if not all the UPC production occured there. Things get even more interesting with this Life-Like issue, which must have been after the UPC operation ceased operation. How Life-Like came across the molds is unfortunately unknown but it may have been in a bulk-purchase of molds that were located overseas. This is simply conjecture, however.

Life-Like Tally-Ho Coach - (ex Miniature Masterpieces ex Revell), 1/48, 09672

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Life-Like issue from the original 1950s molds. Very highly detailed model includes coach, horses and figures as shown on the box art. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. 'Miniature Masterpieces' was formed through an alliance of Lou Glaser (Revell) and Steve Adams (Adams Action Models) in 1953. Although the molds were made at Adams and it had the appearance of an independent company, the firm was run by Revell down to the prototypes being made at the Revell plant. Originally there was no evidence of the parent company on the surface. The State Coach of England was the first kit, issued in 1953. More kits of excellent quality followed. Revell completely took over the line in 1954 and in that year and the next, kits were labeled 'Revell' with a 'Miniature Masterpiece' label on the box top also. The molds, however must have remained in Adam's hands, because when Life-Like acquired the Adams molds, the Miniature Masterpieces were included as well.

One tree is brass plated and the other parts are light gray plastic. The brass plating is in 'excellent' condition. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. Palmer made a range of five field gun kits which included the Gatling Gun, Civil War Field Piece, Revolutionary War Cannon, Naval Cannon and 75mm World War I Artillery Piece. The original issues contained brass plated parts and chain or rope as necessary. The economy line was issued without brass plating or chain. Finally, there was a deluxe series that included extra parts such as limbers, carriers and caisson. Life-Like eventually purchased the molds and reissued the line in the mid to late 1970s, and Encore reissued some of them in 1993.
