1/48 H509-98 Revell Western Figures Set - Miniature Masterpiece
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: NM
Rare early Revell kit from 1955 that is in amazing, investment-grade 'near mint' condition. Very well molded and detailed model containing everything you need for the western diorama as shown on the box top: nine animals, six cowboys, fence, saddle, pail, packs, rifle, skull, wagon wheel and more. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed 'krinkle' bag and includes instructions. 'Miniature Masterpieces' was formed through an alliance of Lew 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.
