1/15 B2 Enterprise Cycle Miniatures Tandem Bicycle And B1 Old High Wheeler
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good-
SALE!! Includes both kits in the original boxes. Very rare. Enterprise was a very successful maker of balsa wood free-flight and control line aircraft models dating well back into the 1930s. In the early 1950s the Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' caught the attention of Enterprise staff. Enterprise maintained their own museum of rare and extraordinary old time bicycles, so it only seemed natural that the first (and only) two plastic kits from the company would represent bikes. The Tandem, based on an example from 1896 and is very nicely molded and detailed for that time. It includes a display base also. The 'Old High Wheeler' is also well detailed and includes a display stand. Both were fine kits issued in 1954 but did not sell well; production was discontinued after a short run. The Tandem has never been started and is inventoried complete with all parts and instructions. The Old High Wheel is complete with all parts and instructions but NOTE: it has minor and 'professional' quality assembly. The rear fork is glued to the frame. There is no other assembly.
