Hudson Miniatures 1900 Packard Roadster Old Timers, 1/16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$85   

Dated 1949 and highly detailed for that time. Large-scale model measures 6.5 inches long when built. Early multi-media kit consist of numerous die-cut, saw cut and machined wood parts, beautiful plastic wheels, steering wheel, lanterns, metal parts and stock, die-cut card stock and large, excellent plans/instructions. Includes full size plans and instructions. This kit has never been started. The small parts are still factory bag sealed, and all others have been inventoried 100%. Complete with full-size plans and instructions. 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.

Marine Model Co Canadian Corvette - 20 Inches Long, 1/96, 1098

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$89   

Excellent, large scale kit. Features fully carved and machined hardwood hull that is about 90% finished, a very large number of metal fittings, pre-cut and machined wood as well as wood stock, instructions and excellent full sized planes. The kit has never been started and is 99% complete. Includes hull, all wooden parts and may be missing some fittings. I say 'may' because there is a factory note inside that says "Due to a shortage of strategic material, we have been force to discontinue our complete fittings set." They do, however, provide a complete fittings list so you know what you need. I have inventoried the fittings against the list and very few are gone. You will need to provide the following: grate, two tiny eyebolts, 1 davit, one prop, 2 lifeboats and one ladder. The rest are present.
