1/48 H521-98 Revell Medicine Wagon - Miniature Masterpiece
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: NM
Rare 1955 issue in exceptional 'Near Mint' investment grade condition. The box has like new color and gloss, four solid corners, no tape or price tags and a very small amount of light wear. Very highly detailed model includes medicine wagon with detailed suspension and open rear platform, colorful decals for Doctor Brown's Snake Oil, two horses, Dr. Brown, one entertainer, and Indian, local man and a local woman with her young boy and girl. Never started. The original factory 'krinkle' bag is present but has split open. I have done a part-by-part inventory and the kit is complete with all parts and decals. Includes instructions in excellent condition. '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.
