Maco 1/24 Four Wheel Cab Over Engine Ladder Truck / Fire Engine plastic model kit

1/24 Maco Four Wheel Cab Over Engine Ladder Truck / Fire Engine

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Very, very rare. Dated 1946. This is a fully-scale, highly detailed wooden kit that measures just shy of two feet long when assembled. The box top photo does show the actual built model but was slightly retouched. The kit has a very high degree of prefabrication; all wood blocks are fully factory carved and labeled for identification, ladder frames are cut and drilled for rungs, numerous parts are cut to shape, wheels are completely formed and there are many smaller parts that are fully carved to final shape. Kit materials consists of hardwood & plywood parts, one sheet of printed balsa parts (fenders, I believe), hardwood stock, clear for windows and a few metal parts. There are amazingly detailed full size plans that include side, top, front and back elevations, detail drawings for the operating ladders and more and detailed text instructions as well. The plans are in 'excellent' condition with slight edge wear and slight yellowing as the only flaws. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts to the best of my knowledge. Such a kit is difficult to inventory past the larger, labeled parts but it certainly appears to be complete. Little is known about Maco Model Company beyond the fact that it was located in California and made this kit in 1946.
