Revell 1953 MG TD Highway Pioneers - Series 4, 1/32, H50-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$49   

1954 original issue of the famous Highway Pioneers. This kit is in very rare investment-grade 'near mint' condition. It is from original hobby shop stock that has never been for retail sale until now. Inside, the kit is nice as it is outside. It is never started, and all the parts are still sealed in the factory 'krinkle' bag. With instructions. Before the 1950s 'model building' never made the top 10 list of boy's activities. Hobbies were nothing new to America in the 1930s/40s, but they were not mainstream. Shortly after the turn of the century, many dedicated modelers built flying or static airplanes, ship, train, automotive or other subjects. Basic kits existed, but the majority of these models were built from scratch, which demanded a high talent level developed from years of experience. That changed in the early 1950s. The phenomenon of the Revell/Gowland & Gowland 'Highway Pioneers' car kits was a significant force in proving that model building as a hobby could have mass appeal, provided that the kits were easy enough to build and finish. These 1/32 scale vehicles could be built in an hour after dinner and looked much like the real car. The Highway Pioneers series lead to the production of other subjects in plastic and the effect was revolutionary. By the early 1960s, model building was the #1 past time of American boys.

Hawk Supermarine Swift, 1/72, 607

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$24   

Very cleanly molded kit that builds very nicely. The model has excellent fit and recessed and raised panel lines. Can be assembled with or without landing gear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The Swift was a very early jet fighter to replace the Supermarine Attacker. A very capable aircraft, the Swift suffered numerous accidents early on. As a result, less than 200 were ever built and it did not see combat. It did hold a world speed record for a short time, only to have a Douglas Skyray take the record a few hours later. The problems were ironed out, but by then the Hawker Hunter was proving very capable and there was no need for the Swift and it's RAF service life was short. The most successful version was the PR variant.

AMT 1956 Buick Century Convertible Promo Friction Drive Motorized, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

$54   

Original dealer promotional model. And AMT went to a good deal of effort on this model! It features a all-metal chassis, friction motor (which works), metal axles and gear, metal rear bumper, front bumper and grille, metal portholes and two tone interior. Clean windshield is excellent. The body has good color and gloss. This is a celluloid plastic body, so there is some warping, but less than what 90% of the survivors have. It is still very displayable. The boot and steering wheel rim have been very neatly painted by the previous owner. If any of the other silver trim is not factory painted, it sure is neat enough to pass for it!
