HHH Holiday Shopping Guide Vol. I


No. 1 - Mercedez-Benz "Legend of Silver Arrow" by Schuco, Modell-Paradies, €69.95

This studio model depicts the legendary paint stripping story, considered the "birth" of the Silver Arrow in 1934.

No. 2 - Ford Trimotor Model Airplane by Authentic Models, Magellan Models, $499.99

No. 3 - 1930s Typhoon Speedboat by Authentic Models, Nautical Home, $270

This double-ender was, at the time, the fanciest prewar runabout ever built. A highly detailed GM engine comes under the hatch, along with leather seats, mahogany strips meticulously applied to a wooden frame, chrome fittings and a chrome metal stand.

No. 4 - Tipp Kick World Cup Classics - 1970 Brazil Team, Tipp Kick, €24.50

While American kids played foosball, European kids apparently have been Tipp Kicking since the early ‘20s. This little German-made, two player soccer game uses metal miniatures. Players each have one field player and one goalie, and use a 14-sided black and white "ball" that determines the possession.
