1/48 H702 Revell American Firefighters Hose Reel - Brazil Issue
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Sealed NM
Still near mint in the factory seal but the seal has split on the side. Kikoler issue from Brazil. Includes two highly detailed horses, hitch, carriage with frame detail, rubber hose, rope and metal chain, along with two firefighters and a Dalmatian dog. 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.
