Strombecker Temco TT-1 Navy Primary Trainer, 1/48, D36-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$79   

Rare kit in good condition. The notoriously thin Strombecker box was preserved with very good color and four solid corners. This model was unique in that a customer could lift the hinged, full-color 'Pin-Up' artwork to view the kit inside. The kit was (originally) sealed with a clear cellophane panel glued to the inside of the box lid. The inner cellophane is intact. Nicely molded kit with recessed panel lines and very complete decals. Features crew, ejection seats, instrument side and main panel detail, opening canopy and optional position landing gear. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Strombecker was most famous for making the finest in wooden kits. During the short time that they made wooden kits, they released many interesting subjects that are desirable today.

Hawk F4D Skyray Triangle Box, 1/72, 402

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$135   

Rare Triangle Box issue from about 1957/58. As a marketing experiment, Hawk tried this novel and colorful box only with the Skyray.

Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. This box rates as 'good.' It is completely solid and free of repairs but has general wear and left upper corner damage as shown.

Hawk Supermarine Swift, 1/72, 607-60

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG++

$28   

Still factory sealed but the seal has split. Very cleanly molded kit that builds very nicely. The model has excellent fit and recessed and raised panel lines. Can be assembled with or without landing gear. The Swift was a very early jet fighter to replace the Supermarine Attacker. A very capable aircraft, the Swift suffered numerous accidents early on. As a result, less than 200 were ever built and it did not see combat. It did hold a world speed record for a short time, only to have a Douglas Skyray take the record a few hours later. The problems were ironed out, but by then the Hawker Hunter was proving very capable and there was no need for the Swift and it's RAF service life was short. The most successful version was the PR variant.

Maircraft Buzzard Bombshell - 69 inch Wingspan Class C Gas Free Flight or R/C Conversion

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$165   

The fantastic Buzzard Bombshell was a record setting aircraft in the very late 1930s/early 1940s. The plane won the AMA National Class C Open in 1940 with a flight of 49 min and 50 seconds. Kit contains many prefabricated parts to speed assembly as well as a clear canopy, formed gear struts, full scale plans and more. This kit is from the early 1940s or perhaps as late as 1947/48 when Maircraft went out of business. This model came from the estate of a very active and particular early aircraft kit collector. It is like factory-new inside and has not been started. Complete with all parts, plans and decals (if originally included).

Frog Hawker Hunter FGA Mk.9 or Mk.59 - RAF No. 54 Sq 1969 or Swiss No.1 Sq 1964, 1/72, F204

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$20   

Late 1970s final logo issue. Includes parts and decals to make either version/aircraft. Excellent full color painting guide is located on the bottom of the box. Typical high quality Frog kit with fine panel lines and no rivet detail so it builds up to a realistic model. This kit has not been started. NOTE: missing display stand. Otherwise inventoried with all airplane parts, decals and instructions. 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, Blue, 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.
