Orange Crush-Revell 1915 Ford Model T, 1/32

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$79   

Very rare kit with a fascinating history. Around 1958/59, Orange Crush of Mexico offered a promotion. They offered free, colorful, plastic model cars if you collected correctly-marked Orange Crush bottle caps. The models are 1/32 scale Revell Highway Pioneer series - although there is no mention of Revell or Lodela anywhere on the box. Orange Crush had the boxes and even the instructions specially made for them with no mention of a manufacture. They were never given numbers. The boxes were very thin and fragile cardboard. This has contributed to wear and you must be very cautious with them. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bag and the instructions are sealed in the bag as well. You could redeem your caps two ways - at the Orange Crush truck and at a Modelandia Hobby House. The box sides show the 18 cars in the series. Orange Crush also released two full-color booklets and a complete paint set for the cars. A colorful cardboard box held 7 colors of paint in glass bottles, complete with 'Orange Crush' screw-on caps! The entire promotion was done in coordination with Modelandia Hobby House which had up to 19 stores. Modelandia's name appears on each of the boxes and the paint as well. Robina S.A. was the bottler or distributor of Orange Crush in Mexico at that time. The box side lists the other 18 kits with small color pictures of each and shows three sizes of OC - Family Size (Familiar), Grand (Grande) and Normal. You could also obtain models with Titan bottle caps. Titan was also bottled by Robina and came in large (Titan) and smaller (Titancito) sizes and apparently more than one flavor. We do not know how Orange Crush had access to the plastic kits or who sealed the internal bags with the Crush instructions inside them. We can assume that it may have been Lodela, since they would have had access to the Revell molds. It is not know for how long the promotion lasted, but Orange Crush was one of the most dominant soft drinks in Mexico at that time. Here is one clue: some boxes claim that Modelandia had 13 locations; other boxes, which obviously came later on, claim 19 locations. This may indicate that this promotion went on for a significant amount of time.

Bandai 1910 M-40 Flyabout Thomas Flyer, 1/16, 0504275

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$189   

1985 issue. Rare Bandai issue of this highly detailed, large-scale kit of the famous winner of the 1908 New York to Paris Race. The kit is molded in green, white, black, wood brown, very dark gray, brass plated, clear and with real rubber tires. The kit features a highly detailed engine with real valve springs, full ignition harnesses, complete rolling chassis just like the real car, working steering with metal shafts, opening doors, removable hood, tape and belts for holding the spare tires and more. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions. Originally, the Thomas Motor Company was building bicycles in the 1890s as so may other automakers did. Erwin Ross Thomas, the founder, was experimenting with high speed gasoline engines. From 1898 to 1900 they built commercial engines and gasoline powered tricycles. Then Thomas moved to motorcycles, creating the "Auto-Bi", which was the first practical motorcycle commercially built in the USA. By 1902 he was the largest manufacture of motorcycles. Very shortly after this, the first Thomas Car, the "Buffalo Junior" was produced and 100 sold the first year. The Thomas was originally an advanced car and well known for it's high speed. In 1906, E.R. Thomas entered his cars in the Vanderbilt Cup and Glidden Trophy. The Thomas completed the 2000 mile tour without any mechanical adjustments. That year saw further race victories. In 1907 Thomas had several models with a new four cylinder engine; the G70 from that year was known as the fastest production car in the world. At this time, Rolls-Royce made some public statements about the superiority of the 6 cylinder engine. This caused E.R. Thomas to challenge Rolls Royce to a race from NY to Chicago - Rolls Royce, however, backed out. But four European manufactures took Thomas up on his challenge, and the Paris newspaper Le Matin sponsored the great event for 1908. This race laid a course from Buffalo, NY to San Francisco, then to Alaska down the Yukon across the Bering Strait on ice, then rerouted to Japan due the thaw, to Siberia and then across Europe to Paris. The Thomas entry was a stock Touring car with George Schuster as the driver. After 169 days and 21,000 miles, the Thomas was the winner. Today it is still considered one of the greatest automobile races ever.

Heller Pamir Four Masted Barque, 1/150, 804

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG-

$175   

Very large and highly detailed kit with 738 parts. Measures 75cm (~30 inches) in length and 40cm (~16 inches) high when assembled. Full hull kit includes display stand, fantastic deck and fittings detail, railings, detailed masts with separate yards, billowing vac sails, full rigging supplies, numerous rigging diagrams and pin diagrams and full building instructions in English, French and German. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The Pamir was bulit in 1905 at Blohm & Voss shipyards to become the 51st ship in the fleet of R.F. Laeisz of Hamberg ("The Flying P Line" was a reference to the starting letter of most of the ships names and the numerous records that they held). She was a four masted barque of 4425 tons with a crew of 33. She saw extensive trade service between the wars and served in both World Wars. After WWI she was given away as compensation; however her original owner bought her back in the 1920s. Before WWI she was sold to a Finnish cereal shipping fleet. Her beauty saved her from torpedoes from a Japanese Submarine - the Commander simply could not sink so wonderful a ship. In her 40th year of existence, the Pamir was bought with the Passat by a Dutch demolition crew. Yet at the last moment the West German merchant marine bought both ships to train cadets in the 1950s. The Pamir was lost in an Atlantic storm in 1957.
