Frog P-38L or P-38J Lightning - Red Series, 1/72, F186
Frog P-38L or P-38J Lightning - Red Series, 1/72, F186
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc,   old
$22

Contains markings for 433 FS USAAF Lt.C. Robert Anderson or Chinese Nationalist. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. NOTE: one main gear door is short shot by 1/4 inch. Frog is considered the father of injection molded model kits. The Lines Brothers opened Frog in 1932, capitalizing on the fever caused by Lindberg's solo transatlantic flight. Almost overnight the western populations became 'Air-Minded', and anything aviation was in high demand. Frog created a quality line of stick and tissue rubber powered aircraft and gliders as well as innovative ready-to-fly rubber powered aircraft that required no assembly. The box even contained a built-in rubber motor winder and fuselage holder. Model airplane flight competitions were popular in Great Britain, and one category was 'Rise Off the Ground', or ROG. By changing this to 'Flies Right Off the Ground', the FROG name was born. In 1936 Frog created a line of injection molded plastic models, the first such kit line in the world (Hawk sold a line of injection molded aircraft models in 1934 but they were factory assembled and painted). Named 'Penguin' after the bird that does not fly, the kits were innovative beyond the means of production. At a time when models were simply built by wingspan, the Penguin line was a constant 1/72 scale. Furthermore, a large 1/72 Short S.30 Empire class flying boat contained a full interior and lights! A line of accessories such as AA guns, tractors, hanger, ambulance, sound locator, searchlights and lighting kits were quickly added to the line. WWII caused a pause in production. After the war the box color changed from silver to green, and Penguin kits were also marketed in the USA. Production ended in 1950. Frog quickly expanded and released the Red, Orange, Black, Green, Gold Token, Spin and Comet series as well as Trail Blazers and several others. It is noteworthy that while most manufactures in the 1940s/50 were making toy-like models, Frog attempted to make very realistic models. For example, 'detailing' kits with excessively large rivets was once very popular. Frog ignored this trend and continued to mold aircraft with fine panel lines and no rivets. As a result, Frog kits can be built into very realistic replicas. Production ended in the late 1970s, but Frog molds are still in use around the world.

Airfix Martin RB-57E or B-57B Canberra, 1/72, 05018
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good,   old
$54

From original molds dating late 1970s/early 1980s. Contains optional parts to build the rare recon version or US B-57B bomber. Very nicely molded and detailed kit for that time with full decals and paint guide for both aircraft. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag including decals and instructions. The box cover aircraft is from 460/DET 1, a small but doubly-staffed unit that was directly subordinate in mission operations to 7th Air Force headquarters at Tan Son Nhut Air Base. Tan Son Nhut was part of the large combination air base and commercial international airport adjacent to the South Vietnamese capital of Saigon. RB-57E aircraft derived their nickname from their call-sign which was 'Patty Lynn.' There were only four aircraft assigned but each had two rotating air crews. Mission imagery (film) was processed by the 12th Reconnaissance Intelligence Technical Sq, which was also located at the 7th AF HQ complex. Nominally they were assigned to the Huge 460th Tactical Recon Wing, to which the 12th Tactical Recon Sq (RF-4Cs)was also assigned. (Thanks to John Barlow for the history!)
Airfix Blackburn NA-39 Buccaneer Craftmaster, 1/72, 4-89
Airfix Blackburn NA-39 Buccaneer Craftmaster, 1/72, 4-89
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good,   old
$30

One of the more dramatic Craftmaster boxes. A British carrier launches heavily battle-damaged Buccaneers with enemy ships within visual range. Other Buccaneers are taking heavy and accurate fire from the enemy, while one ship is engulfed in flames. Propeller driven aircraft fall burning from the sky. The Buccaneer was the world's first purpose designed low level 'below the radar' bomber. Low level strike aircraft have a shorter airframe life limit due to the stresses of low level flying, so the Buccaneer was designed to be very strong and even had many sub-assemblies milled from solid metal. Kit features opening unique rotating bomb bay, folding wings and working arresting hook. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Box has damage and is only graded 'good'.
Pyro Burmese Paddy Boat, 1/45, 318-89
Pyro Burmese Paddy Boat, 1/45, 318-89
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+,   old
$54

Hard to find kit from the late 1950s with great box art by Howard W. Arnold. The Pyro company chose many of it's kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. Wonderful boxart by Russell W. Arnold. The Paddy is molded in light blue, includes two figures, vacuform billowing sails, a display stand, hanging lanterns and rigging instructions. This kit has never been started. It is either still in the internally sealed factory bag or has been inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

$28

Hard-to-find kit from 1951. The Ace Products Company was located at 60 N. San Gabriel Blvd, Pasadena 8, California and produced a line of automobiles and perhaps other subjects also. This kit consists of injection molded hard plastic black wheels and tires, clear injection molded headlights and holders, cast metal steering wheel, grill and MG decals and pre-cut and stock wooden parts. The majority of the parts, including the body, seats, fenders, etc are profile cut. Includes full size plans with assembly illustrations, detailed (for that time) written instructions and two photos of the completed model. NOTE: at one time the passenger 'box' was built. Due to the use of poor glue, it has fallen apart. The pieces are intact and can be easily assembled again. One piece broke and was neatly repaired. You can use it or replace it with wood (it is balsa) if you desire. There was no other assembly.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+++,   old

Still factory sealed. Hard-to-find reissue from 1990. This kit uses the original molds from this 1964 kit. The Starbird-designed Predicta was the crowd's favorite, traveling over 50,000 miles coast-to-coast and winning many car shows, including the famous Oakland Roadster Show. She was the first in the custom field to have an electrically operated full Lucite Bubble Top and 'Unistick' steering where the wheels are turned by a centrally-located aircraft style control stick. Power was provided by a 392 CID '57 Chrysler Fuel Injection engine. The kit features operating 'Unistick' steering, working bubble top, opening hood, detailed engine, deep dish chrome plated wheels and highly detailed interior. Molded in color, clear, chrome and with rubber tires.

Aurora 1913 Mercer Raceabout - 'Old Timers' Issue, 1/16, 572-198
Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc,   old
$85

1961 issue with an 'excellent' grade box. Done in a big 1/16 scale, this kit and the other 'Old Timers' in the series represented a significant leap forward in quality for Aurora. The kit features full suspension, transaxle and driveline detail. It builds up a rolling chassis like the real car, and includes full exhaust and a detailed interior. Molded in gloss ivory, gloss black and with brass plated parts and real rubber tires. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including instructions. Aurora was renowned for turning a profit and for keeping expenses down. In researching new kit subjects, they came upon a forgotten jewel - the Hudson Miniatures line of 1/16 scale wooden kits. Hudson had discontinued this line due to lack of sales of wooden kits. But the Hudson models were second to none in quality, research and documentation. Aurora was quick to realize this and used the research and layout from these kits to create the subjects for this 'Old Timers' series. It is fortunate for us that they did, because in most cases this is the only injection molded kit of these rare and classic early automobiles.
