Item details

This listing is for a Vintage 1940s Handi-Craft Auto Casting Set 4 Car Molding Kit Set Toy in used, in the original box, good overall condition. All four molds are present in used condition, two are damaged beyond repair and the other two are questionable; however, there are four cold casted cars in the box, which would allow someone with the skill to cast the negative mold again (in a new material) to potentially restore the set to it's original condition! See photos. The 'Handi-Craft Cold Casting Set' modeling powder tin is present, opened and has been consumed.The cardboard packaging is present in fair condition. The original peened axles and tire sets have been consumed in the casting of the cars. I believe the casting powder is plaster of Paris or something equivalent. Wheel axles show oxidation, color pucks are not present (consumed to color the casted cars), tin can shows light wear and oxidation, the box is in overall good condition showing very light wear, minimal discoloration, and one split in the lower right corner. Car molds roughly measure 3.5", 1.25", 1". Box roughly measures 13", 9.25", 2". Produced during the 1930s- 1940s at Handi-Craft Company, Saint Louis, Missouri, USA. Extremely rare and difficult to find item out of our long term storage collection. Please message me with any questions prior to purchasing!
