Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Boeing Fighter (F4B-4) - Midget Craft 6 inch wingspan Solid Balsa Airplane Model - (F4B4)

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$38   

Very old 1932 issue from Ideal Aeroplane & Supply Company. Ideal was one of the first US model airplane producers, starting their business in 1911. During the early years of the Great Depression, Ideal switched to balsa wood and soon released a line of 'Six Inch Wingspread' solid scale models in a line called 'Ideal Midget-Craft'. Adds for this line can be seen in Model Airplane News and other major popular aircraft publications of the 1930s. The models included plans and the required wood and usually retailed for about 10 cents. This aircraft has been started, which in this case is good news. The fuselage from Ideal was simply wooden stock. The original builder has carved the fuselage very accurately and correctly to about 90% finished. No other work has been done and no other parts have been cut out of the printwood. The model is complete and would be easy to finish.

Silver Streak Wood Sheathed Refrigerator Car - North Western Mechanical Temperature Control Reeefer - HO Craftsman Kit With Metal Sprung Trucks, 1/87, S415-345

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$48   

Classic kit from the Craftsman Era of HO kits. Very detailed and well made kit. Silver Streak was one of a number of manufactures that created very realistic wood and metal kits during the 1940s and 1950s. This is, in my opinion, an exceptional kit. Includes pre-scribed and cut and factory painted and lettered hardwood sides decorated for North Western and all other required markings, fully milled and cut hardwood roof and floor, hardwood scribed and pre-painted car ends, metal door hardware and cast brake parts including levers, cast coupler pockets, underside girders, bolsters, ice hatches, brake wheel, metal ladders, grab irons, roof ribs and brake linkage, scale chain and more. This kit has complete underside detail and instructions to help with this tricky but rewarding task. Includes full size plans and instructions. The kit has never been started. All small parts are still internal factory sealed containers and all other parts have been inventoried present.

Frog Lavochkin La-7 Fighter, 1/72, F404

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$18   

Last issue from the late 1970s with the final Frog logo. Very cleanly molded kit with excellent fine panel detail and no unrealistic rivets. Includes decals for USSR or Czech Air Force (Red and White National Markings). The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes 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.
