1/48 H509-98 Revell Western Figures Set - Miniature Masterpiece
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc++
Rare early Revell kit from 1955. Very well molded and detailed kit contains everything you need for the western diorama on the box top- nine animals, six cowboys, fence, saddle, pail, packs, rifle, skull, wagon wheel and more. The kit has not been started and is inventoried complete with all parts and excellent instructions. 'Miniature Masterpieces' was formed through an alliance of Lou Glasser (Revell) and Steve Adams (Adams Action Models) in 1953. Although the molds were made at Adams and it had the appearance of an independent company, the firm was run by Revell down to the prototypes being made at the Revell plant. Originally there was no evidence of the parent company on the surface. The State Coach of England was the first kit, issued in 1953. More kits of excellent quality followed. Revell completely took over the line in 1954 and in that year and the next, kits were labeled 'Revell' with a 'Miniature Masterpiece' label on the box top also.
