Revell/Gowland Highway Pioneers

Before the invention of inexpensive plastics in the 1950s, 'model building' was a minor activity for the youth of America. The introduction of the 1/32 scale vehicles  'Highway Pioneers' car kits by the collaboration between Revell & Gowland proved that model building could have mass appeal.
