William H Low Co 1800s Amoskeag Steamer (Steam Pumper) - Wilo Line Fire Truck, 1/24, FP7

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$115   

Very rare. Very highly prefabricated and detailed. Likely from the 1940s. William H Low Co., of Braintree Mass., issued the 'Wilo Line' which included a superb series of antique commercial firefighting equipment. The scale is given as 1/2" and the finished steamer is 8 inches long. The kits were very advanced for the time and shared many of the pre-fabrication methods of Hudson Miniatures. Features plastic injection molded spoke wheels, completely precarved boiler, a vast number of other completely carved and cut large and small wooden parts, numerous completely carved smaller wooden parts, numerous cast metal fittings, working metal bell, hoses, metal stock as needed, sandpaper, complete instructions, a parts layout, photos of the actual steamer and the model under assembly and complete, full size plans. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including instructions/plans. The kits in this line include Amoskeag Steamer, Hose Reel, Hose Wagon, Chemical Engine and many others. In most cases they are the only kits in existence of these historic vehicles. Bill Low did design at least one 'non-fire truck' kit in his Will-O-Line - a Conestoga Wagon, advertised as being 1/24 scale, kit #B14 for $2.85 list as "This is another Museum Piece by Bill Low." After seeing these fire truck kits, I do not doubt that.

Still factory sealed. Purchased new at Woolworths on May 19, 1967 in 1966 in Cleveland, Ohio. Larger scale kit from Lindberg molds. UPC stood for Universal Powermaster Corporation which was based out of New York City, NY. UPC did not cut their own molds, but bought kits already molded from other manufactures and re-boxed the kits in the USA.

Shizukyo German 75mm Assault Gun III Motorized With Light Up Gun Barrel, 1/50, TS-202-300

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$185   

Very, very rare and a very nice investment. Shizukyo started in the 1960s but was out of business before the end of the decade. This kit is probably from about 1963/64 and is well molded and detailed for that time and features motorized operation on the rear drive wheels to move the treads and a large flashing red bulb at the end of the barrel that 'fires' the gun. Features TKK Mabuchi RE15 motor that is still in the original old-style TKK box, complete with printed plastic wrapper and sealed accessory bag, all metal gear box, wire and sealed bag with motorizing hardware, the red electric light bulb, glue and decals. The actual kit is molded in a black or very, very dark green plastic. Inside, the kit has never been touched. All the smaller parts are still in the factory sealed bags and the big one has a paper header. However, one of the two bags had a 2" tear, so I inventoried the bag - it is complete with all parts. The only parts that were not sealed are the upper and lower hull, upper and lower turret and gear box/gears/drive shaft. The instructions are in 'excellent' condition and the decals are still in the sealed bag and 'very good' with moderate yellowing being the only flaw. Amazingly, the treads are in 'near mint' condition and completely intact - they are still very flexible! NOTE: this kit must be shipped insured.

$115   

Factory sealed kit in investment grade 'near mint' condition. Hardbox is dated 1962, but the kit issues is likely from around 1964 due to the '130' price extension on the part number and the lack of 'Famous Fighters' and sunburst in the oval logo.
