MPC Hot Rodder's Ghost Of America Stroker McGurk - Original Issue, 104-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$34   

Rare original issue from 1964; not the common reproduction. Stroker McGurk was created and drawn by Tom Medley for Hot Rod Magazine. The popularity of the character gave MPC an idea - why not make a model? While an excellent kit, it proved to be a poor marketing choice. The kit was far less popular than the cartoons. As a result, it was quickly and quietly withdrawn from production, making the originals very rare. This Race Car is heavily styled on the Red Baron's Fokker DR-1 and molded in dark red and chrome plate. The chrome parts are in 'mint' condition. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried and NOTE: missing one part, steering wheel. Includes all other parts and includes 'excellent+' condition decals and instructions. No scale is given but it is large; the body measures 10 inches long when assembled.

Revell 1915 Fiat Tourer - Highway Pioneers, 1/32, H55-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$42   

1953 early issue molded in red acetate plastic. This kit has never been started. All parts are still sealed in the factory 'crinkle' bag with instructions. This is from the issues produced with Gowland & Gowland as it carrier their 'balloon' logo on the side. 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.

Pyro Rolls Royce Towne Car, 1/32, C349-125

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$42   

1967 Pyro issue from original molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of it's kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. In some cases, the specific car and owner is on the box. Features detailed chassis, full front and rear suspension, steering linkage, complete motor, removable hood, full interior, realistic inner and outer spoke wheels and more. With clear, chrome plated & black molded parts and rubber tires. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions.

Hobby Japan Brompton Folding Bicycle, 1/12

The instructions include photos of a built model.

AMT 1965 Buick Riviera 3 in 1 Kit Movie 'Villa Riviera' George Barris, 1/25, 6555-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$125   

Early issue hardbox. Legendary AMT 3 in 1 kit can be built stock, custom or competition. George Barris served as the AMT consultant for the customized kits, and designed and built the 'Movie Car of the Year' for the movie Villa Riviera. This model will build the stock, Barris Custom or Barris' movie version. Model includes numerous optional parts for suspension, motor, exterior and interior as well as custom decals. Includes a special clear display stand also. Molded in white, clear and chrome with rubber tires and metal axles. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, vinyl material, decals and instructions. NOTE: box looks better than the 'fair' grade but it is graded that low because there is a large stain and box damage to the lower left long side and short left side of the box top. Additionally, there is identical damage to the tray (lower box) and I would grade it 'fair-.' NOTE: the instructions have only very minor bug damage but the decals have significant damage and are only 70% intact (about 30% destroyed).

Advanced Molding Corp Ferrari 342 America Sports Car - (pre-Aurora), 1/32, 13

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$45   

NOTE: builder only, please read carefully. Very rare and for the advanced builder/collector of early plastic models. Advanced Molding issued 7 pioneering plastic car kits in 1954. But in 1955, Aurora purchased the molds then released them (the first in '55) under the Aurora name and artwork. They became famous under the Aurora name but virtually unknown under the original Advanced label because they were issued for year or less. Advanced cleverly advertised all 7 kits on each box - the box top shows the kit inside, and the long side panels show 3 on each side. The 7 were the Cunningham, MG, Jaguar, Alfa Romeo, Ferrari Sportster, Corvette and Ferrari 342 America. This kit is the Ferrari Sportster, is molded in bright red with rubber tires. NOTE: this kit has the body shell assembled to 'professional' quality. Fit is perfect and the seams are puttied and sanded. There is no other assembly and zero painting. All parts are present. With instructions that include a nice history of the car. Advanced was located at 54 West 21st Street, New York 10, NY. After selling the cars, Advanced remained in the plastic model business with the Trailblazers HO train series in 1955 centered around the famous "General." It was issued as a locomotive and tender, or just the cars as set (passenger, mail combine, baggage, box car, flat car and caboose), or the cars each separately and the rare freight set which included the locomotive and tender, box car, flat car and caboose.

Hudson Miniatures 1913 Mercer Raceabout Lil Old Timers - Quickie Kit, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM++

$46   

Rare and in investment-grade 'near mint++' condition inside and out. This is old hobby shop stock that has not been sold retail until now. Molded in bright yellow plastic. Never started and inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions. These kits have a very interesting history. When the Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' burst upon the hobby scene in 1951, they started a hobby revolution. Plastic model kits were not new in 1951, but successful mass marketing of plastic kits was new. The sensation swept the country, and Gowland & Revell could not make the kits fast enough. The fact that the public was buying these models shocked the successful hobby establishment. One such manufacture was Hudson Miniatures. In the 1940s, Hudson had established a name in making 1/16 scale 'Old Timer' models of automobiles. These were excellent kits with wood and metal parts, but a high degree of skill was required to carve and finish the wood parts. In the late 1940s, they added some injection molded plastic parts (usually acetate wheels) to the series but did not consider a completely plastic kit. When Hudson saw what was happening with the Highway Pioneers, he began to design his own 1/32 scale line called 'Lil Old Timers', which hit the stores in 1954. An early paper fold-out catalog shows 18 models including some real gems like the 1910 International Harvester Passenger Car, 1911 Brush Delivery Truck and 1906 Columbia Electric Car just to name a few. The line was bought by Revell a short time after it's release, and Revell did reissue some (but not all) of the kits. As you would expect from Hudson, this is a nice kit with excellent moldings and detail for the time. The Mercer was perhaps the most famous sports car of it's day, and it can be successfully argued that it was America's first sports car. The 30 horsepower 'T' head 4 cylinder engine sped it along at over 80 miles per hour. A 1914 Mercer clocked 112 mph at Daytona Beach - no mean feat for that age.

Revell 1929 4 1/2 Liter Bentley Highway Pioneers - US Antique Series, 1/32, H63-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$42   

Original issue dated 1954 in 'excellent+' condition inside and out. The US Antique series was the first one to have real box art for the exact kit inside. This kit is from old hobby shop stock and has never been sold retail until now; but the box does has light wear as shown. Inside the box, it has not been started. All the parts are still factory sealed in the original 'krinkle' bag. Includes instructions. This is from the issues produced with Gowland & Gowland as it carries their 'balloon' logo on the box top a the lower right. Not long after this, the Gowland logo would disappear completely, leaving only the Revell logo. It is also worth noting that this is one of the first non-generic Highway Pioneers boxes. Earlier boxes were all the same, with the kit number and car stamped on the side, usually with a red or black rubber stamp. This box is completely dedicated to the Bentley kit, and even has advertisements for very early Pre-S issue Revell 1954 ship and aircraft kits on the long sides.
