1/48 H700 Revell American Firefighters Steamer with Firemen and Dog
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc+
Kikoler issue from Brazil. Molded in the correct white, red and gold. Includes rubber hose and metal chain, along with the men and Dalmatian dog. Never started. NOTE: missing one part, a very small round red wheel retainer. Could be made from stock plastic. Otherwise inventoried complete with all other parts and instructions. Marlin first cut the molds in 1952 and issued the six original American Firefighters (Chemical and Ladder, Steamer, Hook and Ladder, Water Tower, Aerial Ladder and Hose Reel) in 1952. Revell signed a marketing agreement with Marlin in 1953. Five of the kit were released with the Revell name and marketing name 'Collectors Kits, Closter N.J.' Revell added the horse parts as they were not originally part of the Marlin issues. The kits made excellent display pieces, but they never caught the imagination of young men like jet aircraft did. The five molds were shipped to Brazil. After run for Kikoler (Revell Brazil's Distributor), they were shipped back to the USA but the molds were lost at sea.
