Revell 1929 Duesenberg Model J Highway Pioneers - US Antique Series, 1/32, H72-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

Sold   

Original issue dated 1954 in rare investment-grade 'near mint' condition inside and out. The US Antique series was the first one to have real box art for the exact kit inside. This kit is from old hobby shop stock and has never been sold retail until now. Inside the box, it has not been started. All the parts are still factory sealed in the original 'krinkle' bag. Includes instructions. This is from the issues produced with Gowland & Gowland as it carries their 'balloon' logo on the box top a the lower right. Not long after this, the Gowland logo would disappear completely, leaving only the Revell logo. It is also worth noting that this is one of the first non-generic Highway Pioneers boxes. Earlier boxes were all the same, with the kit number and car stamped on the side, usually with a red or black rubber stamp. This box is completely dedicated to the Duesenberg kit, and even has advertisements for very early Pre-S issue Revell 1954 ship and aircraft kits on the long sides. 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.

Pyro Chevrolet 1937 Custom Convertible, 1/32, C299-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc-

Sold   

Late 1960s Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of it's kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. This model is nicely detailed and has a tree of chrome parts and clear parts also. The box states that it can be converted to a 'road racing' or slot car. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. NOTE: one very small bumper brace on the body has broken off and missing - the other side is intact so one can be scratch built from stock plastic.

Imai M60 US Army Medium Tank Motorized With Cam Drive and Automatic Transmission, 1/25, 1-4204-1498

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

Sold   

Very rare. Still factory sealed. Large scale (1/25) model is motorized with an RE-56 motor (the box says it is included) and has an amazing array of features. The 'Special Automatic Transmission' gives improved climbing ability by doubling the torque and switches to low-torque for faster, level road running. You can select forward or reverse and a cam provides a choice of steering patterns. The turret also rotates and the gun barrel moves up and down. The treads are built separately and you can vary the length as needed. Idler wheels are spring cushioned. Knowing Imai, there are more probably more features but I cannot confirm that since the kit is still factory sealed.

Jim Walker A-J Hornet Ready-To-Fly Airplane, 59-1

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Incredibly rare in this condition. Jim Walker produced a line of ready-to-fly balsa aircraft in the 1940s and early 1950s and the Hornet was one of the most popular. This is fresh hobby stock that has never been sold; I believe I was the first one to open the box. The box is in exceptional 'excellent++' condition with very little wear, great colors and perfect flaps and lids. Inside, it is factory new with all parts in great condition. Even the color printing on the wood is as new. It has never been built and has been inventoried complete. The instructions are on the box side. Very few of these survived; they were inexpensive, disposable items that were great fun to fly.
