Lindberg US Moon Ship, 1/96, 1003-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair++

Sold   

Rare first issue from the 1950s. Lindberg made the world's first plastic science fiction model, the famous UFO. The sales success quickly prompted a wonderful line of 'near science fiction' models of which this Moon Ship was one. Very nicely molded and detailed in silver and red-tinted clear plastic. Display base and scale figures are included. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: the box displays slightly better than the 'fair++' rating but is graded a such because of very serious wear at the very bottom and also on the lower short box panel. The lower side panel is slightly worse than the lower box top.

Revell 1908 Buick 10 Rumble Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H40

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

1952 early issue molded in bright red plastic. This is from the issues produced by Gowland & Gowland as it carries their 'balloon' logo on the side. 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. This kit has never been started. Inventoried complete with all pieces present and 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!

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

1952 first issue in the 'Series One' yellow box.

Also, there is no Gowland & Gowland 'balloon' logo on the side. 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 yellow plastic. This kit has never been started. The small parts are still factory sealed in a small wax bag; the larger parts were never sealed and have been inventoried complete. Includes instructions.
