Berkeley 3 Flying Model Jetex Missiles / Regulus II / Bomarc / X-16 Two Stage - PSST 50 Jet Rocket Engine, GMM 1 295

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Very rare and from the 1950s. Includes factory pre-fabricated and painted wooden Regulus II (17.5 inches long), Bomarc (17.5" long) and X-16 Two-Part 'Man in Space' concept rocket (28.5" long if placed end-to-end) as well as the metal 'PSST 50' rocket engine which essentially a Jetex engine. There is a high degree of prefabrication. The factory glued the rudders into place and all you do is slide a few parts into place, put the jet engine into the already-attached metal engine holder and you are ready to fly! Can also be run on CO2 power or rubber band catapult launched. The kit has never been started. The missiles are inventoried complete and still in place on the factory display cardboard. The jet engine is present and has never been used. There is one wooden dowel for catapult rubber band launch and full instructions including trimming and flying tips. NOTE: some parts were factory taped together; that tape has naturally fallen off and is gone. Two balsa parts have breaks, but both broken parts are present and fit back together perfectly for an easy fix. Thanks to Dale Rhodes, there is a reference to this kit in 1958. So far that is the earliest known print add.

Hawk 1909 Hupmobile - Highway Classics, 1/24, 635-60

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Rare kit dated 1964. Hawk did not issue many automobile kits, but when they did they chose interesting subjects. This one is 1/24 scale and molded in yellow plastic with black wheels. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including instructions. The 1909 Hupmobile was among the first cars to look 'long, low and lovely' with a racy appearance. Rarely seen now, the Hupmobile was very popular in that day due to good performance, looking a bit like a Mercer or Stutz but sporting a much lower price tag. And this kit has a very interesting history also! The molds were originally cut by Kaysun in Japan @ 1954. The kits were a huge advance over the 'Highway Miniatures' and if put side to side put the Revell offerings to shame. I do not know of other kits from Kaysun beyond the two cars. Later in the 1950s Strombecker purchased these molds and issued them in very colorful boxes. However, Strombecker discontinued all plastic kit production in the late 1950s. In 1964 Hawk somehow located these molds. Always with an eye to quality, the Mates brothers knew these were perfect kits for their expanding line of models. The called the Rambler and Hupmobile 'Highway Classics' and issued them in full color boxes that sported photos of the actual built models. There were at least three issues; one at 50 cents, one at 60 cents and one with a special case. However good the kit, the subject matter simply did not catch on and eventually the kits were withdrawn from the line. Polks Hobby Modelcraft found and purchased the molds in 1982 but did not issue the kits. In 1988 Mandrill Manufacturing purchased the Strombecker molds and it is possible these two Kaysun kits is among them.
