Revell 1903 Model A Ford Factory Display - Built Up With Flower Style Case - Highway Pioneers, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

This is a Revell-factory built display built for hobby shop promotional use around 1952 or 1953. This one of the earliest examples with the model screwed to a hardwood base and a folded and glued celllophane cover nailed into place with one nail on all four sides. The cellophane cover was like that used by florists to protect their flowers for sale. The intention was simple- if hobby shops would purchase and display these attractively built displays, potential buyers would see them and immediately purchase the kit. This probably worked well; but the hitch was that these displays were expensive for the 1950s, so few hobby shops could afford them. And once in public, there was heavy attrition; parts easily broke, and when the new kits came out next year, they were thrown away to make room for more. Which makes condition of this one even more exceptional. The actual model is very neatly built and Revell factory airbrushed. It is still sealed - the cover had never been removed as all nails are intact. The car is 100% complete with no damage. Even the wooden base, etched gold name plate for the car and fragile flower case cover are in excellent condition. It would be hard to find such a fine example of early USA plastic modeling history. 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. Shortly after the turn of the century, many dedicated modelers built 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. That changed in the early 1950s. The phenomenon of the 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 could be built in an hour after dinner and 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.

Revell 1904 Nash Rambler Factory Built Up With Case - Highway Pioneers, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

This is a Revell-factory built display built for hobby shop promotional use around 1954. You can always tell the Revell-built models by the airbrushing and the way the parts were masked. The intention was simple- if hobby shops would purchase and display these attractively built displays, potential buyers would see them and immediately purchase the kit. This probably worked well; but the hitch was that these displays were expensive for the 1950s, so few hobby shops could afford them. And once in public, there was heavy attrition; parts easily broke, and when the new kits came out next year, they were thrown away to make room for more. Which makes condition of this one even more exceptional. The actual model is very neatly built and Revell factory airbrushed. It is 100% complete and has no breaks and no repairs. Even the base, base decal and 'jewel case' cover are in very good condition; however there are tape marks on the two short ends of the clear cover and a tiny chip at the base on one side.
