About Revell's Highway Pioneers plastic mold models

"Revell was founded in 1943 as a plastics molding firm called Precision Specialties in Venice, California, by Lewis H. Glaser a California entrepreneur. The company made a variety of products contracted for different companies.

About 1950, Revell reproduced Maxwell and Ford Model T assembled toys originally designed by the Gowland Brothers in England, a company producing toys since 1932. The box advertised that these were "Made in Hollywood" and were called Revell "Play Planned" toys.

A couple of years later, these toys were scaled down and modeled as four to five inch "Highway Pioneers Quick Construction" kits — some without the rather cartoonish figures and none having mechanical toy action. These met with great success — the Maxwell in particular was made famous by Jack Benny's radio show and around 1953. The original larger action toys were discontinued and Revell focused on the newer kits, with the Gowland hot air balloon logo still shown on the green, yellow or orange boxes.

Box information shows models were offered in at least four series, not including the Maxwell (HO Scale Model 2008). Series one consisted of a 1900 Packard, 1903 Ford Model A, 1910 Ford Model T roadster, 1909 Stanley Steamer, and a 1903 Cadillac. Series two was 1914 Stutz Bearcat, 1915 Ford Model T Sedan, 1908 Buick Rumble, 1910 Studebaker, and a 1910 Cadillac. Series three was the 1904 Oldsmobile, 1904 Rambler, 1907 Sears, 1910 Pierce Arrow, and a 1911 Rolls Royce (Gowland & Gowland 2007). Revell also offered a "Collector's Kit" with ten individually wrapped kits of the Highway Pioneer models in one box.

Models in the "Highway Pioneers" series were commonly retooled and offered by a number of other companies like Premier, Lincoln International, J & L Randall Ltd ("Merit" brand), Lodela (licensed in Mexico) and Minicraft. Eventually the original Highway Pioneers tools were acquired by British model train manufacturer Dapol Ltd.

The models are currently out of production and reportedly located in Wales, headquarters of Dapol, along with redundant tools from Airfix, Kitmaster and Tri-ang Model Land.
Some of these copies and knock-offs appeared very early on. For example, the 1911 Maxwell offered by Hudson Miniatures of Scranton, Pennsylvania, appeared in 1952 under the "Lil' Old Timers" name. The Hudson Miniatures kits usually were manufactured with a small brochure giving historical facts on each vehicle. The box advertised the model as a "Quickie-Kit".
