AMT 1951 Pontiac 8 Four Door Sedan Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Rare promotional model with a metal chassis. The sticker on the bottom says "PONTIAC Mfg. by Aluminum Model Toys, Inc under authorization & control of Gen. Mtrs.

The paint has 'factory-new' color and gloss and the chrome is all intact and bright. The model has never been played as the tires are perfect.

Boucher 100 Foot Harbor Tugboat With Machine Carved Hull, 1/96

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Very rare, especially in this condition. Boucher was one of the earliest successful high-quality model companies in the USA. It was founded in 1905 Horace E. Boucher, a French-born naval architect employed by U.S. Navy Department and head of the Navy's model shop in Washington. Boucher kits were prized possessions at that time and naval museums displayed built versions - there are more than 40 Boucher kits in the Smithsonian alone. Boucher pioneered the mass production of cast metal fittings and selling full kits to the general public. Some credit him with starting the infant model industry in the United States that grew to prominence in the 1950s. At the very least, he took what had been the hobby of a tiny handful of skilled craftsman and made it into a hobby that almost anyone could enjoy. This is a wonderful model featuring a stunning hardwood fully carved full hull, other wood stock are required, clear material for the pilothouse, the correct factory box of fittings (a miniature of the large box) stamped "100 Ft Harbor Tug Boat," full text instructions that are very detailed for that time and full size plans. The actual ship measures 13 inches long when assembled. The kit has never been started. All the fittings except the screw are still factory sealed in small wax paper bags. All non-factory sealed parts are complete with paperwork.
