Revell Highway Pioneers Foreign Car Gift Set - 1958 MG TD / 1907 Renault Limousine / 1911 Rolls Royce / 1913 Mercedes Torpedo / 1953 Jaguar XJ-120 / 1915 Fiat Tourer, 1/32, P495

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Rare gift set dated 1953. This early piece still has the 'Another Gowland Creation' and balloon logo on the side. There is a factory-stamped alternate part number on one box side of 811-778 - possibly a Revell number. The cars are molded in the correct, colorful early acetate. There is very little acetate warping as the parts are excellent. The kits have not been started. Two cars are still factory sealed; the other have the bags present, but have split open like the 'krinkle' bags tended to do. These four have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. The Highway Pioneers have a fascinating story. 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.

The 'Independence' type Top Sail Schooners were built at the famous shipyards of Webb and Allen during the early 1800s. Ten clippers of this type were built for the US Government to enforce and collect revenue duties.

The War Schooners were very light vessels - only 73 feet long with a 20 foot beam and of 112 displacement. The bulwarks were cut out with more gun ports than guns to help lighten the ship. The armament consisted of two 9 pounders and four 6 pounders, which were shifted around the deck to fire from different gun ports and the need required.
