Frog DH-60G Gipsy Moth Trail Blazers - with Amy Johnson Figure, 1/72, F169

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$32   

Very nicely molded kit. Includes a realistic standing figure of the famous Amy Johnson. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all 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, 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.

Charmore Mig-15 - Trail Blazers of Transportation, 1/72

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$60   

Very rare kit for the advanced collector. Charmore was located at 126 Market Street in Paterson, New Jersey. They issued a small line of kits in the early 1950s, at the dawn of US plastic kit production. All boxes have the same art - the name of the kit stamped on a side white panel. Inside, the kit has never been started. The contents are mint and complete in the original Charmore paper sacks. The main parts are the correct gloss silver (just one of the several colors that Charmore used), while the canopy, stand and stand arm are clear. Includes decals and instructions. From toy historians, we know that Charmore was created by the toy giant Louis Marx Company after 1945. Evidently Marx hope to obtain retail buyer-level advantages and tax breaks from the arrangement. The company was named for Louis' brother's (David) wife, Charlene. It has been shown that Charmore and Marx mixed molds and products when it came to toys; however, it seems that the model lines were separate. Please email me if you have more details.
