  • 1910 Studebaker Electric...plastic kit

    I have never heard of this kit...a 1/32 Revell effort from the 50s.

    Can make a nice looking car when complete with a little attention to detail.
    It was re-released in the 90's. On eBay often.

      I grabbed one of those in a hobby shop in Virginia for a couple of dollars years ago. The way it is made makes it difficult to assemble without seams. I keep putting off the build.

        You can cut off the roof and make a roadster. I've seen this done and makes another variation for the collection

          What I suspect was the original kit was black. I had one.

            The one I have is molded in green and is part of the Highway Pioneers series which included other very early American cars. I don't know if the kit was released earlier in a different form.

              The Highway Pioneers were the earliest model kits made by Revell and date back to the early 50's. They were based on tooling from Gowland & Gowlwnd, an English toy company. Apparently, Revell had more success with them than Gowland did so they added more models to the lineup. They have been released many times over the years - often by companies other than Revell. I have one that I may build someday. They are easy to build but they are difficult to build well.
