Hudson Miniatures 1911 Buick Model 14 Bug, 1/16

Wood and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$69   

Dated 1949 on the box. Large 1/16 scale kit measures almost 8 inches long when built. Very nicely detailed with numerous die-cut, saw cut and machined wood parts, beautiful plastic wheels, grill, headlights, lanterns and steering wheel, metal parts and stock and die-cut cardstock. The Hudson Miniatures engineers had access to the actual car- and did a wonderful job. The car was owned by Mr. H. Austin Clark and was in the Long Island Museum at Southampton, Long Island, New York. Includes full size plans, many detailed sub-assembly drawings, photos of the built model from all angles, history, painting guide and instructions. This kit has never been started. The small parts are still factory bag sealed, and all other have been inventoried complete with all paperwork. The Buick Model 14, popularly known as the 'Bug' was produced from 1910 to 1911. It was in direct competition to cars like the Metz, Brush, Holsman and other high-wheelers. It's 2 cylinder, horizontally opposed 'L' head engine was rated at 14 hp and could hit a top speed of 30 mph. At $550, the Model 14 was priced well and sold well. Hudson Miniatures created a very popular line of automobile kits in a constant 1/16 scale shortly after WWII. The kits sold very well...so well that you could argue that Gowland & Gowland borrowed Hudson's subject matter for their ground-breaking 'Highway Pioneers.' The Hudson Miniatures 'Old Timers' even spawned a line of imitators, with Fador's 'Smallster' being one of the better in quality. Sales did drop on the appearance and popularity of the much smaller (and less accurate) Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' in 1951. When the all-injection molded Gowland kits proved not to be a passing fad, Hudson quickly planned and released his own all-plastic, small-scale competition called 'Lil' Old Timers Quickie Kits.' The kits were of excellent quality, but it was too little too late. Additionally, sales of the excellent wooden kits faltered further in the next few years with the introduction of accurate, 1/24 and 1/32 all-plastic cars in the mid 1950s. This forced Hudson to discontinue the wood kits and the plastic line was sold to Revell and subsequently re-released. Today, these excellent, big 1/16 kits are often the only model available of these early automobiles. In the mid 1960s Aurora thought so highly of Hudson Miniatures that they purchased the wood kit assets and released a very small number of these in all-plastic models.

Pyro Ford 1936 Roadster, 1/32, C288-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$39   

Late 1960s 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. This model is nicely detailed and the box states that it can be converted to a 'road racing' or slot car. Features detailed molded chassis underside with separately molded front and rear suspension, complete interior, top boot or top in the 'up' position and rear trunk mounted spare tire. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

MPC Dodge A-100 Deora - Show Car or Custom Camper by Alexander Brothers, 1/25, 38437

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$36   

Still factory sealed from 2005. Who can forget the Deora show car? My first exposure was a Mattel 'Hot Wheel' Deora, and the car's image seemed to be everywhere for quite a while. Mike and Larry, the Alexander Brothers, ran a well known and respected customizing shop in the late 1960s. Upon seeing the cab-forward Dodge A-100 Utility Truck, they had an inspiration. What they created was a timeless classic from a true 'ugly duckling'. To top it, the Deora show car was a completely functional car, not just a 'trailered' vehicle. Kit includes custom anodizing gold paint to simulate the original finish of the Deora. Can be built in one of two versions - the one on the box top or the enclosed version with a camper rear. Features complete interior, opening doors, detailed 6 cylinder engine and full decals.

Meta Model Cunningham-Hall GA-36, 1/24, 1

Cardstock Paper Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$28   

From 1978. Very high quality card kit with excellent full color printing, including reflective silver surfaces. The kit has never been started and is complete with all parts and instructions. Randolph Hall came to Rochester, NY in 1928 from the Thomas Morse Aircraft Corporation and founded Cunningham-Hall. His first aircraft, the PT-6, was successful and flown by Jimmy Doolittle and Earhart, just to name a few. In 1934 he designed the GA-21, thinking that it would make a nice military trainer and civilian sport aircraft. Changes by 1936 brought it up to the GA-36. The GA-36 was flown successfully through the 1930s but military orders did not develop, probably due to it's cost, which was high in this class. In 1941, the prototype was taken to Michigan, where the engine was removed and the airframe left in a field to rust. In the spring of 1979 the aircraft was returned to Rochester and restoration began. Once complete, she was moved to the Niagara Aerospace Museum.
