Frog Westland Wyvern 830 Sq HMS Eagle Suez 1956 / 827 Sq HMS Eagle 1955 - Red Series, 1/72, F198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$28   

Has markings for both aircraft. Very nicely molded kit with no rivets - just fine panel lines. Never 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.

William H Low Co Rumsey Light City Service Hook and LadderTruck Circa 1900 - Wilo Line Fire Truck, 1/24, CL120

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$159   

Very, very rare. Likely from the 1940s. William H Low Co., of Braintree Mass., issued the 'Wilo Line' which included a superb series of antique commercial firefighting equipment. The scale is given as 1/2" and the finished wagon is over 14 inches long with the ladders, and even bigger with the 7" front carriage bar. The kits were very advanced for the time and shared many of the pre-fabrication methods of Hudson Miniatures. This kit is based on the Rumsey prototype first made just before 1900. Features plastic injection molded spoke wheels, precut large hardwood parts, fully formed hardwood ladder frames with pre-cut ladder rungs, extinguishers and more, smaller parts including a great many fully cut or carved wood ones, metal stock as needed, sandpaper, complete instructions with detailed plans and full text step-by-step guide and even a big photo of the actual prototype. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including instructions/plans. The kits in this line include CH110 Combination Hose Wagon, FC15 Chemical and Reel Carts, F16 Horses in the same scale, CL120 Hook And Ladder, CL120 (again) City Service Ladder (a completely different kit from the previous one), FC180 Combination Chemical Wagon, FH130 Hose Wagon, FP7 Amoskeag Steamer, CR110 Service Hose Reel, FL10 Aerial Ladder, F18 Chemical Engine and more. In most cases they are the only kits in existence of these historic vehicles. Bill Low did design at least one 'non-fire truck' kit in his Will-O-Line - a Conestoga Wagon, advertised as being 1/24 scale, kit #B14 for $2.85 list as "This is another Museum Piece by Bill Low." After seeing these fire truck kits, I do not doubt that.

Comet Stinson Voyager Struct-O-Speed Flying Aircraft - Coke Bottle Issue, Q4

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$38   

1950s/very early 1960s issue with a ~14.75 inch wingspan. Comet advertised that the Struct-O-Speed series 'Puts Itself Together...That Quick!' on the box top, and it was not a completely idle boast - they were highly prefabricated, built in a fraction of the time of regular stick-and-tissue models and flew well if properly built and trimmed. Features high quality die cut balsa sheet parts, pre-formed wire landing gear strut, fully formed wooden wheels, plastic prop and thrust button and excellent plans with instructions and flying tips. Never started and complete. Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998. The entire 1950s "Q" line included (at the date of this kit) Q1 Piper Cub, Q2 Taylorcraft, Q3 Aeronca, Q4 Stinson Voyager, Q5 Cessna, Q6 Fokker DVIII, Q7 Beech Bonanza, Q8 Ryan Navion, Q9 Globe Swift, Q11 F-51 Mustang, Q12 Spitfire, Q13 Thunder Jet (F-84) and Q14 F-86D Saber Jet. Some of these kits were reissued later with different part numbers and various internal parts changes.
