Revell 1910 International Auto Wagon / International Harvester Truck - Highway Pioneers US Antique Series, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

First issue from about 1952. Molded in bright yellow plastic. Please note that this issue has no part number, and Revell called it the "International Harvester Truck." When the same kit was reissued around 1954, they called it the International Auto Wagon. Never started. All parts are still factory sealed in the early style 'krinkle' bag. With the early, simple, text-only instructions sheet. 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.

Guillows Cessna 180 - 20 inch Wingspan Balsa Flying Model, 601

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

Sold   

One of the Junior Contest Flying Model Airplane series. Stick and tissue light weight flying kit. Includes all materials needed to build and fly the aircraft. The model has not been started. The parts are either in factory sealed bag(s) or inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. Guillow's founder, Paul K. Guillow, was a WWI naval aviator. In 1926 he began producing wooden model airplane kits. His 'Shelf Models' were some of the earlier non-flying models in production. Guillow's grew during the model boom of the 1930s, and when the Depression hit the hardest, Guillow's responded with lower prices and became one of the low price leaders, frequently advertising in Model Airplane News and other leading publications. During the war, like most manufacturers, Guillow's was forced to alternative materials such as cardboard and pine. Guillow's survived the post WWII slump by creating many inexpensive profile flying rubber powered aircraft and gliders in the 1950s (along with North Pacific) which became famous - some are still available today. The stick and tissue lines have been updated with laser cut parts and are still in production as of 2009.

Aurora 1914 Stutz Bearcat American Classics Issue, 1/16, 156

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

Sold   

Still factory sealed. 1974 issue of Aurora's 'Super Detailed Museum Model with Plated Parts.' Done in a big 1/16 scale, this kit and the other 'American Classics' (previously released as the 'Old Timers') represented a significant leap forward in quality for Aurora. The Bearcat builds up a rolling chassis with transaxle, suspension, exhaust and drive line detail and includes a detailed interior with separately molded instruments. Molded in bright red, black and with brass plated parts and real rubber tires. Aurora was renowned for turning a profit and for keeping expenses down. In researching new kit subjects, they came upon a forgotten jewel - the Hudson Miniatures line of 1/16 scale wooden kits. Hudson had discontinued this line due to lack of sales of wooden kits. But the Hudson models were second to none in quality, research and documentation. Aurora was quick to realize this and used the research and layout from these kits to create the subjects for this 'Old Timers' series. It is fortunate for us that they did, because in most cases this is the only injection molded kit of these rare and classic early automobiles.
