Sterling Curtiss P-6E Hawk - 16 inch Wingspan Flying Model Aircraft that Drops Bombs in Flight, A10

Features stick and tissue construction, quality die-cut balsa parts, stripwood and spars, other wood stock as required, die-cut clear windshield, vac plastic details including radiator scoop, engine cowling, pilot bust, wheels pants, exhaust ports and more, finished wire landing gear struts, finished main and tail wheels, rubber motor, plastic prop, covering tissue and a big full color decal sheet. Includes excellent full size plans with detailed instructions. Never started. The small parts are still in the factory sealed bag; the parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling's offering to be 'deluxe' compared to other manufacturers.

Hudson Miniatures 1903 Cadillac - Old Timers, 1/16

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$48   

Sale Pending
Sign up for the Hotlist.

Dated 1949 and very highly detailed and prefabricated for that time. Large scale kit measures 7 inches long when built. Features plastic wheels, steering and lamps, die cut and factory machines wooden parts and a small number of metal and accessory parts. The kit has never been started. The small parts are still factory bag sealed and all other parts have been inventoried present including highly detailed plans/instructions. The 1903 Cadillac was the very first production Caddy and the car that began the legend. This particular model was capable of 30 mph with four passengers. Its 11 hp engine could negotiate a 45% grade with ease. The car was first test driven on Oct 17, 1902. In January of '03 it was taken to the New York Automobile show where orders for 2286 were placed. By mid week, Cadillac announced that were 'Sold Out.' This makes sense when you realize that in 1903 all cars had a rough machine-shop or 'garage' fit and finish; the new Cadillac looked like a Jewel in comparison. Later that year the Cadillac placed or won challenges and reliability contests worldwide and earned the status of 'Standard of the World.' Hudson Miniatures created a very popular line of automobile kits in a constant 1/16 scale shortly after WWII. The kits sold very well...so well that you could argue that Gowland & Gowland borrowed Hudson's subject matter for their ground-breaking 'Highway Pioneers.' The Hudson Miniatures 'Old Timers' even spawned a line of imitators, with Fador's 'Smallster' being one of the better in quality. Sales did drop on the appearance and popularity of the much smaller (and less accurate) Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' in 1951. When the all-injection molded Gowland kits proved not to be a passing fad, Hudson quickly planned and released his own all-plastic, small-scale competition called 'Lil' Old Timers Quickie Kits.' The kits were of excellent quality, but it was too little too late. Additionally, sales of the excellent wooden kits faltered further in the next few years with the introduction of accurate, 1/24 and 1/32 all-plastic cars in the mid 1950s. This forced Hudson to discontinue the wood kits and the plastic line was sold to Revell and subsequently re-released. Today, these excellent, big 1/16 kits are often the only model available of these early automobiles. In the mid 1960s Aurora thought so highly of Hudson Miniatures that they purchased the wood kit assets and released a very small number of these in all-plastic models.

In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.
