Plastic Scale Models

Post by Jugster » Sat Oct 18, 2014 7:45 am

Back when I was a kid, I assembled and painted plastic scale models of my favorite cars—all boys did—and discount and department stores used to sell these like hotcakes. That, however, is an activity which has gone out of style and now have to locate a hobby shop or go online to buy plastic, assemble-it-yourself, scale models.

Turns out the hardest of all plastic models to find are horseless carriages. Does anybody know where plastic scale models of cars from the Brass-Era may be purchased?

Ebay has plastic scale models from many eras. Sometimes you can find such things a Entrex Model T in 2 styles car and truck. Hudson Miniatures had a line called Old Timers originally from early 50s. These very early car models were balsa wood and card stock. They seem to lose value after they are built. The un-built kits are from 10 to 75 dollars and the finished models don't bring any bids.
Please refrain from restoring the survivors
