Mod-Ac Horse And Harness, 1/24, 053

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Rare. Age unknown - likely 1940s. This model contains a horse and full harness as an accessory to the extensive Mod-Ac carriage line in the same (1/24) scale. The horse is beautifully cast in one piece to the pose on the box top. There is no carving needed. Also includes harness material, formed wire parts, harness cutting templates and full instructions. Never started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed bag. The other parts have been inventoried complete with the directions. If it were not for Mod-Ac, we would not have many accurate models of early historic Western transportation; as an added bonus, they were all made to a uniform 1/24 scale. Mod-Ac was a manufacture of early hobby kits out of Los Angeles California. During World War II they issued a well known kit line of military vehicles. The company was innovative as this kit shows - the wide variety of materials, pre-carved wood and highly detailed plans and instructions put this model many notches above the 'make wood look like vehicle' type of kit.

The small parts that were factory sealed are still factory sealed; the larger parts were never sealed and have been inventoried complete including plans and instructions.
