1/24 C947 Mod-Ac Brougham Closed Four-Wheeled Carriage
Multimedia Model Kit, Box Condition: Good-
Rare. Age unknown - likely 1940s. This is a very highly detailed, period kit the popular carriage introduced in England in 1837 and later became popular in America. Features detailed suspension, full interior, steerable wheels, injection molded spoked wheels, clear headlamps, formed plastic frame, die-cut plastic spring leaves, brackets and trim parts, hardwood parts cut to shape, formed wire parts, leatherette upholstering material, axles and fantastic, full size plans with numerous diagrams, detailed assembly drawings, text instructions and more. The kit has never been started. The small parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including instructions. If it were not for Mod-Ac, we would not have many accurate models of early historic Western transportation. Mod-Ac was a manufacture of early hobby kits out of Los Angeles California. During World War II they issued a well known kit line of military vehicles. The company was innovative as this kit shows - the wide variety of materials, pre-carved wood and highly detailed plans and instructions put this model many notches above the 'make wood look like vehicle' type of kit.
