Sold

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.

ESCI Rorke's Drift 1879 Diroama Zulu War Battle, 1/72, P-506

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Rare. An excellent diorama model of the famous defensive action fought by the British against the overwhelming forces of the warrior-king Cetshwago. Includes a very large vacuform display with the house, dozens of Zulu warrior with accessories, dozens of English soldiers and two trees of reinforcement accessories. Never used and inventoried complete with all parts and instructions. Rorke's Drift was a farmhouse that had been transformed into a hospital-depot and it was occupied by about 80 men of Company B of the 24th English Line Regiment and about a hundred or so African reserve troops all under command of Lieutenants Chard and Bromhead. The defenders learned of the massacre at Isandhlwana on January 22, 1879. A few survivors got to Rorke's and warned them, or their fate would have been the same. As 4,000 Zulu warriors charged towards their position, the English decided to fight to the last man and began preparations to hold the spot. They only had about an hour or so - early that afternoon, the Zulu warrior showed up and the battle began. The battle went all afternoon, evening and into the night; there were losses on both sides. At the first light of dawn, the English awaited the final assault, but it never came. The attackers had been decisively weakened and preferred to retreat, leaving the defenders dumbfounded.

In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.
