Lincoln Venom FB4 - (F.B.4), 1/59, 115

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$42   

Nicely made, larger scale kit from the mid 1950s to the very early 1960s. Molded in silver and clear plastic and includes a large clear display stand with a 'swivel' head so the aircraft can be displayed in a variety of flight positions. Never started. Inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Lincoln was an injection molding firm located in Hong Kong. Model kits were not their primary business but an important sideline and they established an early international presence. Major countries of distribution were Hong Kong, Great Britain, New Zealand and Australia. Through specialty hobby shops, they often found their way to the West Coast of the USA. As early as 1956 Lincoln reissued about 16 Hawk kits from the USA, often with 'Picture Gallery' artwork. Although not their primary business, they established quite a line of plastic before discontinuing production in the late 1960s/early 1970s. Many molds moved to Kader, also in Hong Kong, who reissued the line. Some molds eventually found their way to the USA either through ATP (who purchased the excess kit stock when Kader sold out) or IM.

MPC 1978 Monte Carlo Promotional Model In Original Box - Dark Caramel, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$65   

Stunning original model in mint, never displayed NOS condition. It is 100% original with no damage and no repairs. The paint is perfect and has great color and reflection. The wheels have zero wear and the chrome is factory new. The clear is perfect with no fogging or wear. The original box is 'very good' and has some wear, light creasing and is missing one of the small internal end flaps. NOTE: The manufacturer is not given on the chassis; I have assumed that is is MPC since they did made a 78 Monte Carlo in this scale.

Revell 1913 Mercedes Highway Pioneers - Series 4, 1/32, H54-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$36   

1954 original issue of the famous Highway Pioneers 'Foreign Car' series. These issues feature the same 5 car artwork on every box; the only way to identify the contents was an ink-stamped name on the box ends. Molded in gloss dark green plastic. This kit has never been started. All parts are still in the factory sealed bag. Includes instructions. These kits have a fascinating history. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream and never made the top 10 list of boys activities. Spurred on by the nation-wide aviation craze in the 1920s, many became modelers and built flying or static wooden models of airplanes, ships, trains, automotive and other subjects. Basic kits existed, but many of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s when the Gowland & Gowland/Revell Highway Pioneers became the sales sensation of the year. Demand was so great that the factories could not keep up and almost overnight 'model building' was mainstream. The phenomenon of the 'Highway Pioneers' 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 fit the bill: they could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real cars. The success of the Highway Pioneers lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the late 1950s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys...and many adult males too!

Aurora Fokker D-VII - (D7), 1/48, 106-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM+

$44   

SALE!! Still in the factory sealed and in investment-grade 'Near Mint+' condition. The box art is from the original 1956 issue, and the date on the kit is 1958. However, due to the one dollar price extension and blue logo we know this is from the mid 1960s. Aurora's 1/48 scale WWI line debuted in 1956 with six new kits, and the D-7 was #6. The line proved so successful that Aurora added kits almost every year well into the 1960s. Many of them sold well right up until the end of Aurora in 1976.
